Interact with prominent research teams, discover laboratories through guided tours and conduct experimental studies and a research project with Quantum Devices   at Institut Polytechnique de Paris .

In the field of quantum devices and nanotechnologies, the boundaries between physics, chemistry, materials science, biology and molecular medicine blur. Fundamental and applied research in each discipline enriches the others: theoretical advances are accompanied by progress in material science (synthesizing new materials and controlling elaboration) and by developing new experimental techniques e.g. near field microscopy and electron microscopy techniques.

These advances have had important consequences in fundamental physics. Today, we are able to observe and manipulate single atoms and conceive quantum devices: semiconductor sources and detectors, molecular transistors, superconducting circuits for quantum information, hard disks based on giant magnetoresistance and DNA chips.

The first year is dedicated to the fundamentals in Physics. 

Students interested early on by research are advised to apply for a PhD Track in this field (combined Master and PhD). It enables a personalized master program, early immersion in research labs and a progressive development of the thesis studies.


On graduating, students will be equipped for an academic career in universities or major research organisations (CNRS, CEA, IN2P3), or to carry out applied research in an industrial environment.

Programme Structure

Year 1

The topics includes theoretical physics (high energy physics, condensed matter theory and theoretical plasma physics), mathematical physics, particle physics (theoretical and experimental) and astrophysics, experimental condensed matter physics, nanosciences, optics and plasma physics, atomic physics and the physics of cold atomic gases, the conception and use of major research equipment. 

The first year of the Master’s program is divided into four majors:

Major HEP: High Energy Physics Major LOM: Laser, Optics, Light-Matter Interactions Major CMP: Condensed Matter Physics Major QT: Quantum Technologies

Year 2 focuses on:
