Gulliver en bref

L’UMR 7083 est une Unité Mixte de Recherche du CNRS et de l’ESPCI. L’Unité porte le nom de « Gulliver » pour souligner la diversité des échelles étudiées, allant des ondes gavito-capillaires à l’échelle millimétrique jusqu’à l’échelle micrométrique des particules colloïdales.
Gulliver souhaite fortement promouvoir les collaborations inter-équipes et créer un environnement stimulant où des chercheurs de premier plan peuvent interagir et travailler ensemble au quotidien


Soft Matter Days 2017

On June 26th and 27th, we organize the second edition of the ESPCI Soft Matter Days (SMD). This internal meeting will provide the opportunity to present and discuss our soft matter research activities in a relaxing place nearby Paris, Gif-sur-Yvette. The event is open to anyone interested, from interns, PhD students, post-docs to engineers,...

Résultats de PC FOCUS 2017

PC Focus, grand évènement interne de l’ESPCI Paris, rassemble chaque année sur une journée entière les différents personnels de l’école : élèves, chercheurs, enseignants-chercheurs, doctorants, personnels administratifs et supports. Son objectif : faire découvrir les richesses de l’école, partager, échanger, mieux se...

Q&A : A World of Experiments Inside a Liquid Crystal

Teresa Lopez-Leon describes how topological defects in liquid crystals could be used to create artificial atoms or to study math problems in the lab.As a child, it wasn’t uncommon for Teresa Lopez-Leon to hear her parents and uncles—chemists, physicists, and mathematicians—discussing the latest discovery in quantum physics over...

Microscopic agents programmed by DNA circuits

G. Gines, A. S. Zadorin, J.-C. Galas, T. Fujii, A. Estevez-Torres & Y. RondelezNat. Nanotechnol. 2017


Information stored in synthetic nucleic acids sequences can be used in vitro to create complex reaction networks with precisely programmed chemical dynamics. Here, we scale up this approach to program networks of microscopic particles (agents) dispersed in an enzymatic solution. Agents may possess multiple stable states, thus maintaining a memory and communicate by emitting... (...)

Coupling spin to velocity : collective motion of Hamiltonian polar particles

Sigbjørn Løland Bore, Michael Schindler, Khanh-Dang Nguyen Thu Lam, Eric Bertin and Olivier Dauchot J. Phys. Stat. 3 (2016) 033305

We propose a conservative two-dimensional particle model in which particles carry a continuous and classical spin. The model includes standard ferromagnetic interactions between spins of two different particles, and a nonstandard coupling between spin and velocity of the same particle inspired by the coupling observed in self-propelled hard discs. Because of this ... (...)

Phase diagram of a bulk 1d lattice Coulomb gas

V. Démery, R. Monsarrat, D. S. Dean et R. Podgornik, EPL 113 18008.

The exact solution, via transfer matrix, of the simple one dimensional lattice Coulomb gas (1d LCG) model can reproduce peculiar features of ionic liquid capacitors, such as overscreening, layering, and camel- and bell-shaped capacitance curves. Using the same transfer matrix method, we now compute the bulk properties of the 1d LCG in the constant voltage ensemble. We unveil a phase diagram with rich structure exhibiting a... (...)
