The LPSC is dedicated to fundamental research, but it also has a duty exploit the economic impact of this research and the technical knowledge of the laboratory, by, for example, entering into partnerships for innovative development. In fact, for more than 25 years the LPSC has collaborated with industry in various ways:

•By consulting contracts which may be with an individual expert or with one of the research groups of the laboratory.

•By providing highly specialized services.

•By collaborating in joint research projects. These collaborations may take the form of financing a doctoral student, or by training technical staff.

•By exploiting the commercial possibilities of the laboratory’s developments through the CNRS technology transfer infra-structure (GRAVIT, GRAIN).

•By providing specialized laboratory space for industrial companies possibly with a joint research team.

Current Projects:

The laboratory encourages technology transfer and commercial interests principally in its traditional fields of activity: measurement of low radioactivity, electronics, detector technology, computing, ion sources, plasma technology, surface treatment using plasmas.

Other more recent domains of interest are: hadron therapy (CNAO and Etoile) and innovative accelerators. In the longer term TMSR reactors (thorium molten salt reactors) show interesting potential for the production of nuclear energy.

Finally, the large spectrum of scientific and technical competence available at the LPSC allow it to meet many needs of industrial companies, which maybe one-off, like a training course or a highly specialized piece of mechanical engineering, or a longer term collaboration such as the financing of a PhD student for a particular research topic.

Low activity laboratory

The LBA (low activity laboratory) is capable of measuring very low levels of radioactivity. It is a member of the Réseau Becquerel of the IN2P3. This laboratory, located inside the LPSC), is equipped with two hyper pure geranium detectors. Different kinds of samples can be analyzed (ore, water, raw material).

Accelerators and ions sources group

This group has the knowledge required for the design and construction of accelerators and ion sources required essentially by large research centers (CNRS, IN2P3, CEA, CERN for example). Thus it has frequently participated in technical transfer activities. For example: Electron beam for cathode screens, plasmas for the development of surface treatment, accelerator for radiotherapy.

CRPM : (Centre de Recherche Plasmas-Matériaux-Nanostructures)

The activity of the CRPM essentially concerns the following domains :

•The design and realization of new plasma technology by micro waves DECR  (distributed electron cyclotron resonance) or DMW (distributed microwave plasmas).

•The application of plasma technology for the production of particles (H, H+, H-) and for surface treatments such as cleaning, engraving or deposition (PACVD,  PAPVD).

The expertise of the CRPM has led to several technological transfer activities, mainly through industrial contracts (GIS THALES/CNRS- IN2P3/UJF, ERT Plasmas HF, the startup Boreal Plasma), MOU research collaboration contracts and by the financing of students.
