The ESA ‘Spin Your Thesis!’ programme gives university students the opportunity to perform a scientific or technology experiment which is linked to their project, by participating in a centrifuge campaign that provides hypergravity conditions. The experiments are carried out in the … Continue reading
The website dedicated to our project “QUANDROPS” (2012-2017) is now open. This project aims to study the particle-wave association of bouncing droplets. In recent experiments, such droplets have indeed displayed a number of surprising analogies with quantum particles, including tunneling and … Continue reading
When a droplet is gently deposited onto a vibrated liquid bath, the droplet could bounce repeatedly, avoiding coalescence. This peculiar behavior discovered in 2005  is the starting point of an active research on pilot wave dynamics (see for example … Continue reading
Recent articles [1-3] emphasized the interest of 3d printing for scientists. In addition to pedagogical activities, during which students experience 3d models, scientific research can benefit a lot from such a technique. Scientists may build complex structures and may dream … Continue reading
See below our latest movie about our research on Leidenfrost droplets. This movie, emphasizing the conditions for Leidenfrost droplet explosion, will be presented at the next DFD APS meeting.
