Research

We tried to bring together our different research themes through some scientific questions:

FOAM STABILITY

PNG - 946.7 kb
  • How and when does a foam film rupture?
  • How does the surface viscoelasticity impact foam drainage, coarsening and coalescence?
  • How do complex fluids age inside a foam and how do they influence foam stability?

EVAPORATION, DRYING OF COLLOIDS

  • How the nature of the substrate influences the evaporation of a drop?
  • How the geometry affects the evaporation kinetics?
  • How to control the final deposition of a colloidal suspension after drying?

INTERFACIAL DYNAMICS (SURFACTANTS, POLYMER, COLLOIDS)

PNG - 1.3 Mb
  • What are the mechanisms of polymer interfaces formation?
  • How to link surfactants dynamics and surface rheology?
  • How are agregation and crystallisation affected by interfaces?

ADHESION AND FRICTION (MECHANICS FROM MICRO- TO MACRO-)

  • How does polymers slip at solid interfaces?
  • What is the effect of the surface roughness on adhesion and friction?
  • How control the friction in interleaved assemblies?
