    Vendredi 24 février 11:00-12:00 - A4 (Langevin)
    Catching drops with fibers
    In this talk, I will present recent results on the capture of aerosol droplets with a textile, i.e. a fibrous material. Fibrous media are commonly used to collect droplets from an aerosol ; woven nets are used to harvest fresh water from fog, and non-woven entangled fibers are used to filter oil drops from gas (...)

    Elasticity of nano structured objects probed by AFM
    In this communication we will describe how Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) was used to investigate the mechanical properties of nanostructured objects. These objects are nanocapsules designed for a theranostic approach where they can provide both acoustic imaging properties in vivo and release properties of (...)

    Gaz et huile de « schiste » : un bon sujet, quoiqu'il advienne ?
    Les réservoirs pétroliers auto-sourcés sont des roches compactes riches en matière organique qui sont exploités comme source de gaz naturel et/ou de pétrole dits « non conventionnels ». Ils tirent leur qualificatif « auto-sourcés » du fait que les hydrocarbures qu'ils contiennent ont été générés sur place et ont échappé à la (...)

    Design of three-dimensional objects using stress relaxation in thin films : the interplay between mechanics and geometry
    Abstract : It is well-known that a free pre-stressed elastic bi-layer will deform so as to "relax" its total energy. The relaxation process may deform simple straight segments to rolls, or curls, etc. In an attempt to cover more complex three-dimensional geometries we address and solve the general question (...)

    Shear bands as manifestation of a criticality in yielding amorphous solids.
    The nature of the yielding transition in amorphous solids is a long-standing riddle which has attracted a lot of research effort in recent years. Recently, some of us have proposed a picture of yielding as a first-order like transition in a suitable overlap order parameter, measuring the degree of similarity (...)

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.
