Surfaces, Interfaces, Reactivity (SIR)

The scientific subjects of our research group are focused on surface and interfaces, in the fields of phycical chemistry and mechanic, with an effort on the possibility of coupling between them.
The concept of material life time often underlies research, especially involving materials for energy (nuclear, biomass, fuel cells).
In each study, the understanding of phenomena is based on an innovative experimental approach if possible (micro-photoelectrochemistry, acoustic emission, micro-mechanical tests) with the help of well-proven thermodynamic databases (Factsage) and modeling tools (Comsol, Abaqus, Castem).
Group skills are varied, but we can emphasize our excellent expertise in surface physical chemistry, kinetics of heterogeneous processes, adhesion.
Many of the group work is done in collaboration with industry, metallurgical, oil, nuclear, electronics...
Three main themes appear in the observation of research today


M. Yohan Parsa, PhD student at the SIMaP lab (Université Grenoble Alpes), under the supervision of L. Latu-Romain, won the "Jean-Besson" prize during the 47th days of heterogeneous kinetic which was held in Limoges (France).
