Physics of the Interactions of Ions and Molecules


PIIM is a joint research laboratory of the CNRS and Aix-Marseille University located in Marseille, France. It brings together physicists and physical chemists who study dilute media - such as gases, plasmas and beams of ions, atoms and/or molecules - as well as their interactions with matter. Our researchers aim to understand the physical phenomena in these media in order to analyse and characterise matter.

Honoris Causa - Pr. Richard W. Lee

Richard W. Lee, Professor at the University of California at Berkeley, USA, a long-term partner of the PIIM laboratory has been awarded the title of Doctor Honoris Causa of Aix-Marseille University by President Eric Berton.
