INTERNSHIPS (Masters 2 or engineer)
aim of this training is to characterize agarose gel particles to model
red blood cells. Rheology data will be obtained first and adapted to
red blood cells (RBCs). Then another method of trapping of a particle on a
metasurface will be used with partners at INL Lyon. The resonance
effects will allow to measure the reflectivity coefficient and cell
deformability, therefore its rheology (ANR CellDance 2022-2025).
Possible continuation towards a PhD.
