PhD position : Magnetically-driven open microfluidics

PhD objectives : The main goal of this (mainly) experimental PhD thesis is to design a magnetically-driven ‘‘open’’ microfluidics platform (i.e. without walls or channels) aimed to manipulate, move, split, stir droplets transporting biological/chemical informations/material. Open microfluidics is a relevant altermative to conventional microfluidics allowing to stir, split and transport very viscous droplets up to droplets made of complex (eg viscoelastic) fluids. The use of superhydrophobic (...)

PhD position : Fluoride ion transport properties in solid electrolytes

Aiming to develop new solid-state batteries, there is an appealing opportunity in using anionic fluoride ion charge carriers. This could lead to significant breakthroughs in terms of energy density (capacity and voltage), safety and cost [1]. The theoretical volumetric energy of Fluoride-ion batteries could indeed be five-time higher than the one of traditional Li-ion batteries, reaching up to 5000 Wh/L.
One of the most crucial components of a solid-state battery is the electrolyte. It (...)

PhD Position : Thermal transfer around iron oxide nanoparticles during hyperthermia : a quantitative evaluation

The Inorganic Colloids team in the PHENIX laboratory has a recognized experience in the synthesis and use of magnetic nanoparticles for environment and health applications (1). Among them, magnetic hyperthermia demonstrate attractive potential to thermally activate the activity of catalysts and medicines. Albite these tremendous properties, some involuntary or uncontrolled aggregation usually occur when nanoparticles are dispersed in complex solvents (2). Thus, their heating efficiency (...)
