PhD – Physical properties of functional thin films under mechanical stresses

[TheChamp-Sharing]
The proposed thesis is part of an international collaborative research project (PRCI) of the ANR (French National Research Agency) and its Austrian alter ego the FWF (Fund zur Furderung der Wissenschaftlichen Forschung): NANOARCHITECTED FILMS FOR UNBREAKABLE FLEXIBLE ELECTRONICS (NANOFILM). The thesis aims to understand the relationship between the microstructure and the mechanical and electrical properties of nanostructured thin films using synchrotron radiation and X-ray diffraction supported by electrical characterization techniques such as Hall effect and Van der Pauw resistivity. The candidate will have the opportunity to participate in the design and production of a new biaxial traction machine of smaller dimensions than the one used in diffraction to visualize cracks under atomic force microscopy (AFM).

Instability development at the interface of viscous heterocharged fluids

The proposed studies will relate to a low Reynolds laminar flow of a two-dimensional mixture layer of a highly viscous dielectric fluid. The fluid / fluid interface will be studied experimentally under different conditions. This subject is part of action 5.1 of the INTERACTIVES labex, action which concerns the manipulation of internal flow by electrical discharge and charge injection.

CLOSED-LOOP FLOW CONTROL BY PLASMA DISCHARGE AND MACHINE LEARNING

We propose to numerically derive closed-loop control strategies of different flows. We will treat the numerical simulation aspects of physical mechanisms (electrodynamics and fluid mechanics) and the development of innovative control strategies (Data Driven approaches based on machine learning methods). We will study two rather emblematic types of flows: - The flow behind an obstacle (cylinder, wing profile, backward facing step). This type of strongly separated flow is particularly interesting in cases where the objective of the control is to increase aircraft stealth.
