The laboratory covers a wide thematic range, from nuclear physics to cosmology, through particle astroparticle physics, and radiation sciences. The laboratory also has a large group theory. The visit will first show a CMS detector control room at CERN, with a presentation of the group activities. CMS is one of the detectors of the LHC accelerator at CERN. The visit will continue with the DIAM accelerator, located in the laboratory, that can produce nano drops of water (some molecules). This allows to study their thermalization and non-ergodic cooling.

Activities of the laboratory cover various fields, from statistical physics to hydrodynamic turbulence, through mathematical physics and signal processing but also soft and condensed matter. During the tour you will discover a few topics among :- Optical tweezers to probe statistical physics [exp.] – S. Ciliberto, I. Martinez- Laboratory scale geophysics [exp.] – R. Poryles- Soft matter under ultrasound [ex.p] – S. Manneville- Granular systems [exp.] – J.-C. Géminard, A. Naert- Physics of the violin [exp.] – A. Naert- Integrable systems [th.] – K. Kozlowski- Soft and active matter [exp.] – D. Bartolo- Large deviation and climate statistical physics [th.] – F. Bouchet- Thermal noise as a tool in nano-mechanics [exp.] – L. Bellon- Nanopores & Biophysics [exp.] - F. Montel
The ENS de Lyon is right next to the *musée des confluences*, so that's a nice opportunity to visit Lyon's new flagship museum after the lab tour !
