  • Séminaire PMMH - Anshuman Pal, University of Chicago, US
    Vendredi 8 juillet 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Faceted wrinkling at a contracted curved boundary : isometry and hysteretic wavelength selection
    Thin elastic sheets are fascinating because they can show a rich variety of patterns and multi-scale physics from the interplay of only a few basic ingredients, viz., stretching, bending, and geometry. In this talk, through the behaviour of a simple system of a circular annulus contracted at the inner boundary, we (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Gilles Tessier (Sorbonne Univ.)
    Vendredi 1er juillet 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Measuring and shaping the phase of light : new tools to study materials and biological systems
    Spatially-resolved techniques to control and image the phase of light have deeply transformed microscopy. In this talk, I will briefly clarify the notion of optical phase and present two phase-sensitive techniques, both offering high sensitivity and 3D capabilities. Using holography, individual magnetic nanorods (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Al Crosby (U. Mass. Amherst)
    Vendredi 24 juin 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Autonomously Moving and Assembling Soft Matter Systems
  • Séminaire PMMH - Maxime Hubert, FAU, Université d'Erlangen-Nürnberg, ALL
    Vendredi 17 juin 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Mesoscale strategies of collective transport on deformable liquid interfaces
    Transport at interfaces is crucial in multiple areas of physics and biology and is observed across a wide range of length scales. In the strategies used in such dynamics, the role of hydrodynamic interactions, interface deformations, and the presence of other agents at the interface provide the means to mediate (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Ludovic Moreau, ISTerre Grenoble
    Vendredi 10 juin 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Analysis of the micro-seismicity in sea ice with deep learning and Bayesian inference. Application to the monitoring of sea ice thickness, density, and mechanical properties
    In the context of global warming, monitoring the thickness and mechanical properties of sea ice is a major challenge in modern climatology. In particular, the heavy logistical constraints of polar environments, and the lack of accuracy of satellite remote monitoring methods, are obstacles to improving climate (...)
Information for the speakers

The audience is composed of people with rather heterogeneous backgrounds including specialists in solids, fluids, granular flows, statistical physics... so the idea is to keep your talk understandable by people not necessarily working in your field... The seminar time slot runs from 11am to noon so the best is to make the talk last around 45 minutes to leave some time for discussion.
