Micro-milli platform ULB

Mission Statement

By joining the strengths of 3 research teams, we are now able to propose a fully equipped platform for the characterization, the modelling and the manipulation of systems including several phases (gas and/or liquid and/or solid), exchanging mass, energy or momentum at a scale between the micron and the millimeter. These researches can support applied developments in numerous domains, as health, environment, biodiversity valorization, food industry, space research, material science…

The platform is fully equipped for:

Fréderic Debaste is a professor at the TIPs laboratory. Some of his experimental research interests are Drying and Differential Scanning Calorimetry.

Anne De Wit

Anne De Wit

Anne De Wit is a professor at the NLPCU laboratory. Her research focuses on the analysis of convective patterns and instabilities in reactive systems. The dynamics of the related reaction-diffusion-convection systems is studied both theoretically and experimentally. One of her experimental research interests is the analysis of the convective dissolution of CO2 in reactive solutions and of convective processes during sea ice growth studied with a Schlieren setup.

Benoît Haut

Benoît Haut

Benoît Haut is a professor at the TIPs laboratory. Some of his experimental research interests are is the development of methods for the characterization of systems where a mass exchange between a liquid and a gaseous phase takes place. In particular, he focuses on the operations of gas-liquid absorption and evaporation in systems with complex gaz-liquid interface (including Drying).

Pierre Lambert (http://plambert.ulb.be/) is a professor at the TIPs laboratory. One of his experimental research interests is the Nanoscribe. His research focusses on soft microrobotics (fluidic and flexible microsystems) and capillary forces.

Antoine Nonclercq

Antoine Nonclercq

Antoine Nonclercq is a professor at the BEAMS laboratory. Some of his experimental research interests lay in the fields of neuromodulation, physiological modeling and biomedical signal monitoring and processing. In particular, he focuses on the design and manufacturing of Active implantable devices.

Laurence Rongy

Laurence Rongy

Laurence Rongy is a professor at the NLPCU laboratory. Her research interests are in nonlinear chemistry, focusing on the study of reaction-diffusion-convection dynamics and the modeling of out-of-equilibrium nonideal systems. Different systems of interest include reactive fronts, chemically-induced Marangoni flows, and transport in biological and electrochemical systems.
