"The Emir technique is unique in the world, and the principle is very clever, "says Emmanuel Rosencher, Scientific Director of the PhysicsBranch at Onera. "For the first time, we can really visualize the electromagnetic field, which usually seems so mysterious
This work is based in particular on, the defended at Onera at beginning of 2011 (prize for the best thesis of the Physicsbranch of Onera in 2010. The same Onera team, lead by Antoine Godard, had published in 2009 in the equally prestigious journal Nature Physics on a related subject.[ See our press release (in French
In 2003, he became Director of the Physicsbranch where he had a scientific point of view on four departments and more than 350 people. In October 2010, he was appointed Scientific Director of ONERA (DSG)
"Until now the lasers we have been using, powerful enough for these measurements, emitted impulses every 10 milliseconds, explains Emmanuel Rosencher, scientific director of the Physicsbranch at Onera. But, turbulence phenomena, that remain one of the great mysteries of fundamental physics, occur over periods of time that are shorter than a millisecond
"The fluid and mechanical structure calculations are already complex, and the same language isn't used in these fields, nor the same meshing (dividing space into small volumes, or elements) and it would thus be very complicated to create a new calculation code integrating both branches of physics"
