  • Séminaire PMMH - Corrado Rainone (ITP Univ. of Amsterdam)
    Vendredi 24 mai 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Addressing the protocol dependence of glass plasticity and yielding
    The glassy slowdown is a phenomenon whereupon a liquid, when supercooled below its melting point, exhibits a dramatic slowdown of its dynamics, such that it rapidly becomes impossible to maintain it equilibrated on feasible experimental timescales. The resulting out-of-equilibrium system is referred to as a glass, (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH- Tom Mullin (Univ Oxford)
    Vendredi 31 mai 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Levitation by Thin Viscous Layers
    The results of experimental investigations into balancing cuboids, cylinders and spheres‘ on a vertical moving wall which is covered a thin layer of viscous fluid are discussed. It is found that balance can be achieved over a narrow range of speeds in all cases. Systematic results for spheres and cylinders have (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH-Nicolas Vandewalle (Université de Liège)
    Vendredi 21 juin 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Milliswimmers : Self-assembling complex and functional structures at the (sub)millimeter scale
    When soft ferromagnetic particles are suspended at air-water interfaces in the presence of a vertical magnetic field, dipole-dipole repulsion competes with capillary attraction such that structures self-assemble. The complex arrangements of such floating bodies are emphasized. By adding a horizontal and (...)
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.
