Institut d’Electronique, de Microélectronique et de Nanotechnologie, Centre national de la recherche scientifique (Lille, France)

IEMN is a research institute created by the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), two universities and an Engineer school of France northern region. IEMN has equipment for design, fabrication and characterization of devices at the best European level. The institute has a total staff of about 500 persons including 109 professors and associate professors, 45 CNRS researchers, 100 engineers and administrative agents, about 150 PhD students as well as 30 post doc and invited professors and 60 master students and trainees.

The IEMN scientific activity covers a large domain going from the physics of materials and nanostructures to microwaves, telecommunications and acoustics instrumentation. Very open to international collaborations, more than 100 foreign scientists coming from 20 different countries are currently working at IEMN.

In the Nanomicrowave project, the laboratory is involved in the physics of nanostructures and nanodevices made of organic molecules and/or hybrid systems involving organic molecules, inorganic metal and/or semiconductor nanostructures. We contribute to the knowledge development, studying the fundamental electronic properties at the nanoscale and at microwave frequencies of various molecular devices based on self-assembled monolayers, small ensemble of molecules, supramolecular assembly of molecules and nano-objects.
