The Gulliver seminars take place every Monday at 11:30 am in the F304 room, and last one hour including questions. The seminars are in English, and the scientific topics are mainly those studied in the laboratory.

    A few surprises in multiple scattering of light from disordered materials
    Basic studies of light scattering and transport in disordered media are driven by fundamental issues in mesoscopic physics, and by applications in sensing and imaging. We will present recent results that predict unexpected behaviors of interest for the control of light matter-interaction in complex materials. We (...)

    Fifth-order susceptibility unveils the growth of thermodynamic amorphous order in glass-formers
    Glasses are ubiquitous in daily life and technology. However the microscopic mechanisms generating this state of matter are still controversially debated : glasses are considered either as merely hyper-viscous liquids or as resulting from a genuine thermodynamic phase transition towards a rigid state. We show that (...)

General recommendations for the speakers

The audience is often heterogeneous - because of the wide range of scientific topics covered in the lab - so prefer planning a talk for a broad audience. It is recommended to spend several slides on a general introduction, and to make at least the first half of the seminar understandable for non-specialists. The seminar is in English, and speakers are thus invited to prepare their slides in English.

The seminar starts at 11:15 AM. The speaker is asked to arrive in the lab at least 15 minutes in advance to set up the slideshow. The talks last typically 45 minutes, and are followed by a discussion time.
