Résumé

At the top of Bellevue hill in Meudon, stands the oldest CNRS campus specialized in electromagnetism, and material and surface science. This historically renowned site is not only a place of fundamental research but also a bridge to the industrial applications of the future.
The following are successively mentioned:
- The imposing electromagnet of the Academy of Sciences built in 1928 testifying to the prestigious past of the site.
- The materials created at Bellevue and their industrial uses:
synthetic diamonds, heavy element semiconductors, thin films, rare earth and nickel alloys, magnetic and porous materials and fluid flow.
- The range of measuring and characterization instruments: ion probe, scanning and X-ray electron microscope, ellipsometer and emission and excitation spectroscope.
In addition, around the main field, other research activities and a mission to disseminate knowledge through the five units of the communication department are flourishing.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
