Emmanuel Virot, researcher at the Hydrodynamics Laboratory at École Polytechnique presents in this "Labshot" his work on the physics of popcorn.
This third "Labshot" is about popcorn biomechanics. Emmanuel Virot, researcher at the Hydrodynamics Laboratory at École Polytechnique, and Alexandre Ponomarenko, physicist and doctor at université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie, published an article in February 2015 in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface on the popcorn as a scientific phenomenon.
"Labshot" videos present the research conducted in École Polytechnique 22 laboratories. Scientists from École Polytechnique Research Center have three minutes to present one aspect of their work, how it is done in their laboratory and the possible applications. A new "Labshot" video will be put online every 2 month.
