Master Physique spécialité Matière condensée et nanophysique (MCN)

MASTER sciences and technology

Major in PHYSICS


Presentation of training curriculum :

This experimental and theoretical training program, by and for research, aims to form specialists in Physics of Condensed Matter. It is conceived to attain a specialized know-how on the elaboration and characterization of solidstate objects and polymers, particularly at the nanometric scale. This area of research is thriving at present, due to the growing importance of nano-physics. The electronic, magnetic, and optical properties, as well as the combination of them, constitute the core of the teaching and research contents of the program, strongly oriented towards the study novel phenomena at the small-size scales.

Targeted skills :

  • Basic skills in the Physics of Condensed Matter, as well as in advanced techniques of instrumentation and scientific programming.
  • Transverse skills : an ease to work in an English environment (the M2 lectures are conducted in English), introduction to a research activity carried out at the international level, numerical methods for data treatment and simulations.

Job opportunities :

  • Functions  : researcher, university professor, research engineer (after a PhD).
  • Relevant branches of activity : basic or applied research, technology development and management of large technical projects in the public and private sectors ; universities, CNRS, CEA, IRSN, EDF, ANDRA, AREVA, companies developing sensors, measurement systems and simulation tools.

Laboratory internship :

The introduction to research is a preliminary step to a PhD thesis. In semester 4, a full-time laboratory training of at least 3 months will allow the student to test his/her ability to integrate into a research team, to confront the problems of research, synthesize the results of the performed research and assess his/her degree of autonomy. The topic can be chosen among proposals from local laboratories, as well as French and international laboratories or companies performing research.

Local laboratories :

Institute of physics and chemistry of materials of Strasbourg (IPCMS), Institute Charles-Sadron (ICS), Institute of science and supramolecular engineering (ISIS), Electronic department of the solid-systems & photonics (D-ESSP), Sciences laboratory of engineering, computing and imaging (ICube), and Laboratory physical and electronic spectroscopy (LPSE, Mulhouse).

Merit scholarships :

Highly qualified students can apply for a M2 scholarship. The evaluation is based on academic performance. The financial support is provided by the laboratory of excellence NIE. More details here.

Access and recruitement :

  • M1.
  • M2 : The direct admission is possible for students with strong academic records that have the M1 level.
  • Enrollment procedure.
