Gulliver at un glance

The unit is named “Gulliver” in order to emphasize the diversity of scales that are studied there, from millimeter-scale capillary gravity waves to micrometer-scale colloidal objects.
Gulliver a strong desire to promote cross-group collaborations and to provide a stimulating environment where talented researchers can interact and work together on a daily basis.

Its objective: to discover the riches of the school, to share, to exchange, to know one another better ... Two competitions are organized:  -* Doc...

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 dinner. Back ...
