The Transversal Axes

Some of the LAUM's research themes concern several Research Operations, or even several teams.

Two transversal thematic axes translate this interdisciplinarity within the LAUM: the Evaluation and Non Destructive Testing (ECND) axis and the Metamaterials axis.

Metamaterials Transversal Axis

The Metamaterials transverse research axis aims at encouraging the emergence of new topics on structured artificial materials, allowing to innner and transversal collaborations between the laboratory's research teams and research operations (OR), with a special attention to promote the creation of new projects.

To do this, this new structure of the laboratory is first and foremost a tool for the dissemination of information and reflection to provide a concerted and coherent response to calls for projects, calls for papers, special issues of journals, etc.

In addition, several options for exchanges will be set up (bibliographic reviews, mini-workshops and internal training).

Finally, this axis plays a role in structuring the laboratory's activity on metamaterials around five main lines :

  • Characterization of the properties of acoustic and elastic metamaterials,
  • Non-linear metamaterials,
  • Mechanical metamaterials,
  • Metasurfaces for wave control, in particular for scattering, sub-wavelength absorption, etc.
  • metaporous and multi-scale materials for broadband absorption,
  • Metaplates and elastic wave control.
