The instrumentation service helps design and realise the instrument systems and subsystems developed at IPAG. The service formulates the technical specifications of these systems ; develops test benches, notably optical benches, to assess and validate their performance ; participates in the definition and characterisation of the detectors to use ; helps write out the requirements ; consults in house or with industrial partners to plan the construction of the instrument ; contributes to the integration and testing of the completed instrument at IPAG or on site.

The service also supports the chemistry (mass spectroscopy, meteorite analysis) and physics (spectroscopy, goniometry) laboratories present at IPAG, some of which operate in cold environments.

Head of the service : Laurent Jocou ; Deputy head : François Hénault
