  • Séminaire PMMH Rémi Carminati (Institut Langevin, ESPCI)
    Vendredi 22 octobre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Seeing through disordered scattering materials
    The propagation of coherent light through a scattering medium produces speckle patterns in reflection and transmission. Despite the apparent randomness of the speckle patterns, a statistical correlation between the reflected and transmitted intensities survives even in the multiple scattering regime. This mutual (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH David Richard (Liphy, Grenoble)
    Vendredi 12 novembre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Using soft excitations to predict and understand plastic flow in disordered solids
    Imposing an external driving, amorphous solids can flow via a succession of plastic rearrangement of localized particles. Numerous numerical and experimental studies have shown that loci of plastic instability in glasses are triggered by spatially localized soft spots in direct analogy with dislocations present in (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Edouard Ravier (Université du Mans))
    Vendredi 3 décembre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    What can we learn from the experimental modelling of subglacial hydrology ?
  • Séminaire PMMH - Varda Hagh (Univ. of Chicago)
    Vendredi 10 décembre 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Free-then-freeze : transient learning degrees of freedom for introducing function in materials
    Many protocols used in material design and training have a common theme : they introduce new “learning'' degrees of freedom, often by relaxing away existing constraints, and then evolve these degrees of freedom based on a rule that leads the material to a desired state at which point these learning degrees of (...)
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.
