The laboratory is a joint unit of CNRS, CentraleSupelec, Paris-Saclay University and Sorbonne University. Created in 2015, it is the result of the merger of the LGEP (Laboratoire de Génie Electrique de Paris, the original mixed unit) with part of the ex-Supélec host team and the L2E (Laboratoire d'Electronique et d'Electromagnétisme) host team from Sorbonne University. It is located on the CentraleSupélec campus of Paris-Saclay University in Gif-sur-Yvette and on the Pierre and Marie Curie campus of Sorbonne University in Paris.
With 250 employees, including 130 permanent staff (researchers, teacher-researchers, engineers and technicians) and around 80 PhD students, it is one of the most important laboratories in the Ile de France region in the field of "Electrical Engineering". It falls exclusively under the CNRS section 08 and CNU section 63.
The research work carried out within the unit combines a triple approach: theory - numerical modelling - characterisation and experimental validation. They are divided into 3 poles that allow activities to be carried out on a continuum that extends from materials to systems, whether electronic or energy conversion. Two cross-disciplinary centres of expertise provide support. The first capitalises on the work related to the laboratory's historical competence in the numerical modelling of electromagnetic systems with an orientation towards multiphysical, coupled problems. The second brings together the laboratory's numerous experimental platforms with the primary objective of pooling skills in instrumentation and sharing know-how and resources.
- Materials pole: Physics and Components
- Electronics pole: Waves, Components, Systems
- Energy pole: Components, Conversion, Systems
12 themes, the vast majority of which are positioned transversally to the poles, make it possible on the one hand to carry out "core business" research and on the other hand to ensure coherence within the unit by favouring the material/systems continuum.
