RESEARCH ACTVITIES

par Wiebke DRENCKHAN - publié le , mis à jour le

My research activities are integrated in those of the "Liquid Interface Team" which aims to understand and control the properties of dispersed systems like foams, emulsions, or foamed emulsions. We generally approach this challenge at three different lenght scales : Starting from the behaviour of interfacially active agents (such as surfactants, proteins, polymers, or nano-particles) at gas/liquid or liquid/liquid interfaces, we try to understand the properties of thin liquid films, and finally those of the foams, emulsions and foamed emulsions stabilised by the same agents.

A significant part of my research activities is dedicated to building on our increasing understanding and control of liquid dispersions for the generation and characterisation of solid foams with well-controlled structural properties.
