About the Nanomechanics Team
The nanomechanics team is a group started upon recruitment of Adrien Noury (the PI) in october 2017.
Since then, the group started its scientific activities by developing its own fabrication and measurement protocols.
Our team is always looking for new talents to join the adventure

Our Team Members
I am a CNRS researcher in Laboratoire Charles Coulomb – Université de Montpellier.
My main research fields are related to mechanics at the nanoscale, both from a fundamental and an applied point of view.
François is a Professor at the University of Montpellier, with a background in Physical Chemistry of Condensed Matter.
He has an extensive expertise in confined electrolytes, nanoporous media, ionic and molecular mobility, thermodynamics (including phase transitions) and surface physical-chemistry.
Romain Lhermerout completed his PhD at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, under the supervision of Kristina Davitt and Etienne Rolley, during which he studied contact angle dynamics and its link with the nanoscale disorder of the surface.
He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, in the group of Susan Perkin, where he investigated electrostatic interactions and friction across ionic liquids that are confined at the molecular scale. His current research direction is to probe the physical properties of water under extreme confinement, inside individual carbon nanotubes.
Said is a PhD student in joint supervision between the National Academy of Science of Azerbaïdjan (group of R. Jabbarov) and the University of Montpellier. His research focus is on the confinement of water inside carbon nanotubes.
