  • Séminaire PMMH - Mathilde Reyssat, Gulliver (ESPCI)
    Vendredi 8 décembre de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Swimming droplets under confinement
    Artificial micro-swimmers have recently become a central field of research in soft-matter. A very promising and original type of swimmer developed in our team, consists in pure water droplet swimming in an oil phase containing micelles of surfactant. The droplet's activity comes from the formation of swollen (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Arthur Alexandre (EPFL)
    Vendredi 15 décembre de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Dispersion in heterogeneous media : how boundaries shape transport properties
    Identifying transport properties of tracer particles in heterogeneous media at large time and length scales has applications in wide range of physical systems including microfluidics, hydrology, chemical engineering or soft matter. The effective diffusivity is a crucial input for problems of mixing, sorting, (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Santiago Benevides (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid)
    Vendredi 12 janvier 2024 de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Uncovering complex behavior in turbulence and sediment transport through simplified models
    Although the dynamics of a turbulent fluid and of grains being transported downriver might not have much in common, it's the qualities they share that make them challenging subjects to study. Both contain many interacting components and nonlinearities, producing a chaotic, multi-scale, out-of-equilibrium system (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH, Joshua Dijksman (UVA)
    Vendredi 19 janvier 2024 de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Covalent adaptable polymer networks provide mechanical tunability via molecular and mesoscopic lengthscales
    Polymeric materials are ubiquitous in society but also present a large source of waste. There is an ongoing search for polymeric materials that can be better tuned and recycled. One class of polymers that came into the spotlight for this purpose are so-called covalent adaptable polymer networks. Such polymer (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Sophie Marbach (Phenix, Sorbonne Université)
    Vendredi 2 février 2024 de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
  • Séminaire PMMH - Olivier Plé (LOCIE-CNRS)
    Vendredi 5 avril 2024 de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
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.
