Condensed Matter Physics

The theme studies the condensed matter, its physics and its applications in condition of microgravity in order to use it in spatial applications.

The studies in microgravity are also realized in a purpose of simplification of the equations and the modellings governing the transitory phenomena.

The theme studies finally the levitation means.

The fields include:

  • hydrodynamics
  • granular flows
  • solid combustion
  • gas combustion
  • evaporation, transferts
  • boiling
  • solidification
  • supercritical fluids
  • particles and et suspensions
  • foams
  • bio particles

The means to simulate micropesanteur:

  • the 0g Aircraft
  • rocket probes
  • the free fall tower
  • magnetic levitation
