PhD offer at CEMHTI, Orléans: Design of functional properties in random many-particle materials by means of cooperative electromagnetic scattering

Prompted by the versatility of the optical properties offered by inhomogeneous media, laboratories and companies are showing a growing interest in technologies based on composite materials […] The originality of this thesis lies in the full-wave simulations of many-particle systems with essentially no approximations. The goals are to define the role of the textural parameters on the electromagnetic response and identify the degree to which these parameters may be used as a way of control to implement competitive functional properties.
