Organized by the Université de Lyon, the regionalfinal of the My Thesis in 180 Seconds (MT180) competition was played to a full house on Thursday, March 24, 2022. Bastien Marguet and Arthur Guerin-Turcq are the lucky winners of this local final. They will go to the national semi-final on April 8 and 9, 2022 in Paris.
Laclarée is one of the start-ups that has been hosted in the ENS Lyon incubator. The company develops adaptive glasses to correct presbyopia. These glasses integrate a patented technology of lenses that automatically adjust in optical power so that the object looked at is always clear, whatever the observation distance.
ENS de Lyon is the first institution in France to invest in the only instrument in the world that allows the simultaneous manipulation and visualization of interactions between single biomolecules in real time.
8 teams in 3 laboratories – LPENSL, LBMC and RDP – are now working with this instrument.
In April 2021, the School of Physics of Les Houches launched "Oxy-jeunes", a program aiming at organizing short stays, in an extra-ordinary setting, so that PhD and post-doctoral students can meet each other to exchange about their work or difficulties encountered during the pandemic.
Turbulent flows, like planetary atmospheres, oceans, or flow around an airfoil or a wind turbine, undergo strong fluctuations. Sometimes, the system may even undergo abrupt transitions between entirely different flow configurations. Such transitions seem to occur at random times, in an unpredictable manner.
The Bronze Medal is awarded to early work of researchers who are specialists in their field. This distinction represents an encouragement from the CNRS to pursue research that is well underway and already fruitful.
The prestigious Simons Foundation of New York has announced funding for an international project to revisit the fundamental problems of fluid turbulence using statistical mechanics.
