Waterglass exhibits intumescent behavior on thermal treatment, a property being utilized extensively for fire-resistant glass applications. Here, we report on the fundamental understanding of the macro and microscopic structural changes related to foaming.
Congratulations to Barbara BOUTEILLE, former PhD student of SVI lab, whose outstanding achievements during PhD thesis ‘Phase separation in glass thin films for surface nanostructuration’ were rewarded by USTV (‘Union pour la science et technologie verrieres’, french for ‘Glass science and technology union’).
Van der Waals forces modify the fluctuations of the surface of a liquid film and this effect has been measured in collaboration between SVI, SIMM (ESPCI, Paris) and LOMA (Univ. Bordeaux)
Micrometric, electrically irreversible smectic A liquid crystal defect patterns can be used as active films for smart windows with voltage-adjustable and reversible haze levels.
3-8 Octobre 2021 - Fréjus / Villa Clythia - Diffusion chimique dans les phases vitreuses et liquides
Falling jet of dry granular material in water: We show the role of the capillarity and velocity in designing the shape of the interface between the dry grains and the wet material.
SAVE THE DATE - 23-27 août 2021 - Laurence Talini (SVI) et Emilie Verneuil (SIMM) organisent un minicolloque "Interfaces Liquides" aux 17es Journées de la Matière Condensée
A casted glass flow keeps the memory of its local cooling rate, as revealed by precise Raman spectroscopy.
