LEARN staffs study the process and mechanisms at work in nuclear reactions and provide expertise to address issues in related topics or societal issues.
LEARN - Study and Applications of Nuclear Reactions
LENA group - Structure of the Atomic Nuclei
The LENA group laboratory conducts experimental programs on the structure and spectroscopy of the nucleus in extreme states, following three research axes: • the structure of exotic nuclei with neutron halos or skins, low energy resonances, modifications of the standard shell structure, • shapes and deformations of nuclei, which may have very different shapes in the vicinity of their ground state, • and the spectroscopy of very heavy nuclei (region of transfermium nuclei and beyond).
The Nucleon Structure Laboratory leads research programs in hadron physics and Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) with a specific focus on the internal structure of hadrons.

Quark-Gluon Plasma Laboratory
The quark-gluon plasma laboratory studies ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions to create and characterize the new state of nuclear matter in which the quarks and gluons are deconfined, the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). A few micro-seconds after the Big Bang, the Universe was in such a QGP state.
