nanomechanics research project

Our main scientific projects

We are specialized in condensed matter physics and we work at the interface with soft matter and quantum physics. We aim at deepening our comprehension of the fundamental physics laws at stake in the nanoworld. To this purpose, we carry out different projects in the following fields:
  • Sensors based on carbon nanotubes
  • Advanced mechanical oscillators
  • Optomechanical devices

Carbon nanotube Sensors

We use the exceptional sensing capabilities of carbon nanotube mechanical oscillators to probe their environment


We are interested in the fundamental aspects of mechanics at the nanoscale, and in particular the nanomechanics of carbon nanotubes


We explore the coupling between light and mechanical motion


Fundings obtained as a Principal investigator

  • 2019-2021: Momentum funding, with aim to study the confinement of water in carbon nanotubes
  • 2018: CNRS (INP) and L2C funding, to begin the group activity
  • 2017: AAP Emergence (CNRS, INP), to develop a new concept of nanofluidic platform

Fundings obtained as a partner

  • 2019-2022: ANR Ionesco, to study ionic transport in carbon nanotubes
