Louis-Alexandre Couston, Associate Professor of Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University at the Physics Laboratory, and Benjamin Wesolowski, CNRS Research at UMPA, have been awarded the prestigious "Starting" Grant from the European Research Council (ERC).
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.
