Modeling and Exploration of Materials laboratory (MEM)

Published on 6 February 2024

The MEM laboratory offers a unique and coherent set of techniques for material exploration. It is able to provide comprehensive and concrete answers to materials or processes problems.
The MEM laboratory gathers different teams in our Institute whose thematic area is around one technique or one type of experimental technique.

• LEMMA team: Advanced Microscopies laboratory and ion beams. Ultimate TEM, strain measurements, holography, chemical analysis ​
• NRX team: Nanostructures and X-Rays. Studies of nanostructures using laboratory and synchrotron X-rays​.
• NMR team: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance lab, development of Dynamic Nuclear Polarization/Magic Angle Spinning techniques for solid state NMR.
• MDN team: neutron diffraction laboratory. Triple axis inelastic scattering, magnetic scattering. Running of CRG instruments at ILL.
• L_SIM team: numerical simulation laboratory, using ab initio codes based on DFT, Tight binding etc…

The competencies and experimental tools of MEM laboratories are also an essential part of the Grenoble nano-characterization platform (PFNC) and other collaborating research groups (CRGs) built around Grenoble large facilities (ILL for neutrons and ESRF for synchrotron).
