  • Séminaire PMMH - Bérengère Abou (MSC, Univ. Paris Cité)
    Vendredi 1er mars de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Intracellular rheology of red blood cells
    The characterisation of erythrocyte stiffness and its heterogeneity in a blood sample is a key parameter for the description of erythrocyte pathologies. I will present a method for investigating the intracellular rheology of red blood cells and the heterogeneity of the population using molecular rotors. These are (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Min-Hui LI (Chimie ParisTech )
    Vendredi 8 mars de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Electroactive Bi-functional Liquid Crystal Elastomer Actuators
    Liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) show promising potentials as smart actuators, for example, those contracting/expanding linearly like mammalian muscles.[1] Direct heating and light illumination are the most used activation mode in LCE actuators because LCEs are based on thermotropic or phototropic liquid (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Alex Hansen (NTNU Norvège)
    Vendredi 29 mars de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Séminaire d'Alex Hansen (NTNU, Trondheim, Norvège)
    The co-moving velocity, a new concept in immiscible two-phase flow in porous media Alex Hansen PoreLab, Department of Physics, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway Since 1936, relative permeability theory has been the leading description of immiscible two-phase flow in porous media at scales much larger than the pore scale. (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Olivier Plé (LOCIE-CNRS)
    Vendredi 5 avril de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
  • Séminaire PMMH - Benjamin Guiselin - ENS Lyon
    Vendredi 12 avril de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Emergence of spontaneous collective oscillations in dense Human crowds
    Massive crowd gatherings form some of the most dangerous and unpredictable environments [1]. However, we lack quantitative characterizations of their dynamics and the heuristic principles used to explain and predict their motion remain elusive. In this talk, I will present our analysis of the dynamics of thousands (...)
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.
