Welcome to IPhT
The Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT
) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris.
The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organisation. It
encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics:
- High energy physics (QCD and hadronic matter, physics beyond the standard model, supersymmetric gauge theories)
- Cosmology (large scale structures in the Universe, dark matter, dark energy)
- Quantum gravity and string theory
- Exact methods and mathematical physics (integrable systems, conformal theories, matrix models, enumerative geometry, classical and quantum dynamical systems)
- Condensed matter physics and quantum physics (high Tc superconductivity, quantum magnetism, cold atoms)
- Statistical physics and out of equilibrium physics (disordered systems, glasses, exclusion models, fluid dynamics)
- Biophysics (biopolymers, biological networks), complex systems and dynamical networks
The IPhT comprises about fifty permanent physicists (2/3 CEA, 1/3 CNRS), about thirty PhD students and postdocs, assisted by a support staff of about ten people. The IPhT also hosts permanently many short term visitors.

The CNRS Médaille de Bronze awarded to Lenka Zdeborova
Lenka Zdeborova is the recipient of the CNRS "médaille de bronze" 2014
Chargé de Recherche at CNRS and member of IPhT since 2010, Lenka is a specialist of the statistical physics of complex systems and its applications in computer science and technology.
The CNRS "médaille de bronze" is awarded in each scientific section of CNRS once a year to an exceptional young researcher.
Beg Rohu 2014
La session 2014 de l'école d'été de physique statistique et physique de la matière condensée de Beg Rohu aura pour thème "La mécanique statistique hors d'équilibre et la matière active". La session aura lieu du 8 au 20 septembre. Pour plus d'information, voir http://ipht.cea.fr/begrohu.
The 2014 session of the Beg Rohu summer school of statistical physics and condensed matter will focus on "Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics and Active Matter". The school will take place from the 8th to the 20th of September. For more information, see http://ipht.cea.fr/begrohu.
