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