The LPENS is attached to the 3 doctoral schools presented below, whose vocation is to ensure the recruitment, follow-up and training of doctoral students.
The members of the LPENS are strongly involved in the organization and operation of these doctoral schools as well as in the training they provide.

Physics in Île-de-France (ED 564)

The scientific scope of ED564 is very broad. It covers the physics of fundamental interactions, the quantum physics of dilute or condensed matter, statistical physics, the physics of soft or biological matter, but also the fundamental aspects of optics, acoustics and hydrodynamics. Its scientific position is that of fundamental, theoretical and experimental physics, and the applications that naturally flow from them.

Astrophysical Astronomy of Île-de-France (ED 127)

The ED127 Doctoral School offers physicists and mathematicians training in and through research in the vast interdisciplinary field of astronomy and all its methods of observation, measurement and calculation. It covers a field that is undergoing considerable and unceasing development: discovery of extra-solar planets, renewal of cosmology at the interface of particle physics, development of astrochemistry, in situ exploration of the solar system, space navigation, planetology at the interface with the sciences of planet Earth.


Physics and Chemistry of Materials (ED 397)

The themes of the ED397 laboratories are associated with the main current issues in Materials Science: materials for reactivity and catalysis, organic-inorganic and multi-functional hybrid materials (optics, magnetism, biomaterials), polymer materials, nanostructures (nanomagnetism, spintronics) and mesoscopic physics.
