L'X, Peking University and Thalès signed an MOU on Physics collaboration

L'X, Peking University and Thalès France signed an MOU to fully integrate international strengths and teams and to promote trilateral R&D and facility collaborations in a limited number of areas including Strong Field Physics.

The partners agree, as a matter of mutual interest, to develop and extend their scientific cooperation.

École Polytechnique and Thalès have long-term rich experiences in above-mentioned fields, in R&D, or experiences in production and operation management of major equipment.

The ambitious projects included in the MOU could be linked to the discoveries of Professor Gérard Mourou, and in particular CPA (Chirp Pulse amplification), which was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.

École Polytechnique and Thalès have long-term rich experiences in above-mentioned fields, in R&D, or experiences in production and operation management of major equipment. École Polytechnique signed this agreement as part of IP Paris, an Institution of Excellence that brings together five prestigious graduate schools with one ambition: create a world-class institute commited to cutting-edge research and excellence in training.

The ambitious projects included in the MOU could be linked to the discoveries of Professor Gérard Mourou, and in particular CPA (Chirp Pulse amplification), which was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, and the research activity of the Laboratoire d’Optique Appliquée (LOA), a Research Unit operated under the supervision of ENSTA, CNRS and École Polytechnique. LOA research activity covers a broad spectrum in ultrafast laser-plasma science. It includes the development of intense femtosecond laser sources, the study of laser-matter interaction and plasma physics, the production of compact sources of ultrafast energetic radiations and particles as well as the use of these sources for societal, academic and industrial applications.

The aim of the agreement is to effectively facilitate cross-border collaborations between France and China, position the public authorities as the driving force to develop outstanding scientific talents, and to set up collaborations at the international level.
