NS3E (“Nanomaterials for Systems under Extreme Stress”) is a joint research laboratory (unité mixte de recherche) working on energetic nanomaterials and nanomaterials prepared by reactive techniques.

The laboratory studies the influence of the decrease of the particle size and of the nanostructuration of composites on their properties and performance (regarding their reactivity, sensitivity and new properties) with the perspective of achieving scientific and technological breakthroughs.

We are doing 25% of research for advancing the frontiers of scientific knowledge, 45% for acquiring knowledge that paves the way for a well-identified application and 30% for responding directly to the needs of the industry in the defense and civil security sectors.

NS3E is the only joint research laboratory between defense and civil research in France.
