Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d'Orsay


The technical platform is part of the Common Services. It includes the instrumental platform, the mechanical and glassware workshops, and the computing and networking service. This platform is primarily serving the research Teams of the Institute. However, regarding especially the instrumental platform (diversified and efficient), some staff may sometimes participate in training or promotion activities, or in general public activities as well (mainly within the University Paris-Sud) or run external services upon request. To do this, contact the leaders of each instrumental Service. You will find below links to the various Services of the platform.
