From molecular variations to macroscopic properties

Our research activity focuses on studying multiscale effects to understand how small variations at the molecular or molecular assembly level impart specific physical properties to the macroscopic systems they constitute, which properties are then utilized in technological applications. Our research is divided into three distinct thematics: 1) Thin films field-effect transistor sensors. 2) Dynamics of red blood cells under flow. 3) Wood cell wall at the nanoscale.

Our activity is based on a deep intertwining of fundamental and applied research. From a fundamental perspective, we are interested in the relationship between chemical nature, structural organization, and physical properties to answer the question: how do small variations at the molecular level impact the physical properties (electrical, mechanical, structural) of assemblies constituted at the macroscopic scale?

Our work on applicative development falls into two main axes: (i) innovative sensors for ion detection in solution. (ii) functional and/or microfluidic platforms for studying cell behavior and their properties (red blood cell mechanics).
