Welcome to MCN

The Specialty Condensed Matter and Nanophysics is one of the six specialties offered in the second year (M2) of the Master of Physics of Strasbourg. The first year (M1) of the Master of Physics is common to all specialties. The possibility of preparing the “aggregation de physique” is also offered to students.

The Master of Physics, Condensed Matter and Nanophysics (MCN) aims to provide physicists with a broad fundamental training, suitable for both experimental and theoretical research. The MCN track includes a core curriculum with advanced courses on quantum mechanics applied to condensed matter physics, statistical physics and radiation-matter interaction. In parallel, students can, through their choice of elective courses, orient their training either towards quantum sciences and nanomaterials (electronic, optical, magnetic, spintronic properties of low-dimensional, mesoscopic or open quantum systems…), or towards the physics of soft matter and complex systems (surfaces and interfaces, complex fluids, colloids,  active matter…).

L3 student

You are a L3 student (or equivalent), you can apply at the M1 Level, a common first year for all specialities (see here).

M1 student

You are a M1 student, you can apply directly to the M2 Condensed Matter and Nanophysics.
