PIIM Laboratory

Interaction plasma surface


The “Physics of Ionic and Molecular Interactions” laboratory (PIIM), is a joint Research Unit (UMR in French) between the CNRS and Aix-Marseille University located in Marseille. It  brings together physicists and physico-chemists who study diluted media such as gases, plasmas, ion, atom and/or molecule beams, as well as their interactions with matter. The work of its researchers aims to understand the physical phenomena in these media in order to analyse and characterise matter.
