Our expertise covers the mechanics of polymer-based interfaces, thin films and of macro-cellular multi-phase systems. The different phases can be gaseous, liquid or solid; and the interfaces may be covered by (mono)layers of interfacially active agents or lubricants.
Our goal is to understand the static and dynamic response of these systems to different types of mechanical solicitations and to link investigations at different length and time scales to a global understanding of liquid and solid multi-phase systems. We rely on a very broad equipment park and we routinely combine experimental investigations with advanced computational analysis and simulation.
We regularly have opportunities for internships, PhDs or postdocs. If you are interested in working with us, do not hesitate to contact us at: MIM@ics-cnrs.unistra.fr
