In the fields of instrumentation, Irfu's teams carry out the necessary instruments to see through its research in subatomic physics, astrophysics and cosmology.
From the mechanical design of detectors to the realization and characterization of prototypes, and finally the integration and testing of final detectors, there are numerous expertises such as microstructured gas detectors, imagers and space spectro-imagers in different wavelengths (gammas, X, visible, infrared and submillimetre waves).
