UPJV is a young developing University, located in the French province of Picardie, strongly supported by EC regional development program. The integration into the European environment is the priority of the University. Principal expertise of the Laboratory of the Condensed Matter Physics (LPMC) in MELON is the physics of nano-structured ferroelectrics. The experimental activity is strongly supported by the Laboratory of the Crystallography and Material Science, CRISMAT. The theory group provides modeling of epitaxial films, superlattices and nanoparticles of multifunctional materials for potential application purposes.
