Congratulations to Anke Lindner, who has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant 2016 for her project PaDyFlow devoted to the study of particle dynamics in the flow of complex suspensions. PaDyFlow Project abstract: Particle laden flows are (...)
MicroLab/MicroFab PI Eric Clément-PMMH The PMMH laboratory, in collaboration with two other laboratories of the ESPCI (Gulliver, SIMM), is currently managing a micro-printing platform based on the 3D printer Nanoscribe for developing mechanical (...)
P. Claudin, H. Jarry, G. Vignoles, M. Plapp, and B. Andreotti, Phys. Rev. E 92, 033015 (2015) - Snow penitentes form in sublimation conditions by differential ablation. Here we investigate the physical processes at the initial stage of penitente (...)
