Photons are great carriers of information but they usually don’t interact with one another. Atoms interact but are hard to manipulate and do not benefit from the toolbox of quantum optics for detecti
Maintenance of road infrastructures represents a considerable socio-economic challenge in a context where budgets of asset managers are increasingly restricted. To optimize the maintenance of these in
Solitary waves have been a fascinating research topic since their first observation in the hydrodynamics context in 1834. The formation of optical solitary waves in a dissipative optical systems is at the center of this project.
How giant planets form is one of the major open issues in planetary science. This limits our understanding of the origin of planetary system architectures and the conditions needed for the formation of habitable terrestrial planets. In this project we will test new ideas on the growth of giant planet cores and planetary embryos by pebble accretion, the interplay between growth and migration, as well as gas accretion by giant planets
This project is dedicated to a bottom-up approach to optimize the design of porous electrode materials devoted to biofuel cells and biosensors. These devices operate on the basis of complex enzymatic
Many industrial processes like coal combustion, catalytic cracking, gas phase polymerization reactors and more recently biomass gasification and chemical looping involve two-phase reactive flows in which the continuous phase is a fluid and the dispersed phase consists of rigid particles. Improving both the design and the operating conditions of these processes represents a major scientific and industrial challenge in a context of markedly rising energy cost and sustainable development.
MOdelling of contaminant BIOdegradation in PORous media : from bacteria to the field-scale – MOBIOPOR
The study of transport phenomena of chemical species in the presence of bacteria, generally developing in the shape of clusters called biofilms, have had a long history from the environmental engineer
