A propos Joel Chevrier

Joël Chevrier (1960) Professor of Physics at the University Joseph Fourier (UJF) of Grenoble (1998-...). Low Cost High Tech: Technology based innovations in introduction of people to science Major present interest as a teacher is the use of new instruments and new technologies to introduce a broad audience to science and technology. A second important interest is how to introduce non-scientists to science representation and exploration of the world. Science, Technology and Design: The factory of contemporary world Arts and Science: "Une des fonctions de l'art est la relecture permanente de la réalité." G. Penone My research activity as a physicist in the last 10 years has been related to force measurement at nanoscale. This experimental work is based on building new machines. Major subjects as shown by publications have been: - Study of the mechanical effects of vacuum quantum fluctuations: the Casimir effect - Measurement of the heat transfer in vacuum in the near field regime: twin brother of the previous question - Now: Mechanical properties of living materials at nano scales

  1. Can a smartphone be a HomeLab ?

    Abstract: There are 2 billions of smartphones on earth. Each has more than 10 sensors, which collect data to localize the smartphone in space and time, to follow its displacement and to analyse gestures and movements. Through a real-time scientific treatment, the smartphone human interface makes available to everybody this monitoring of the world around us. This interface based on a global approach of the connected man is due to design. Interfaces based on new collaborations between sciences and design, have been developed for smartphone health applications. In field of education, we have entered building a new smartphone human interface dedicated to investigation of gesture and movement at K-12 level. This new program follows the one based on a software iMecaProf now used to teach physics at university. In real-time and interactively, it analyses localisation and displacement and represents results on a PC screen within science formalism. For associated students in design, innovation and challenge is: “what real-time and interactive representation of smartphone data, so that K-12 students can discover gesture and movement using gyro and accelerometer data?” Accelerometer records a trace associated to trajectory but also to the dynamic of displacement, closely related to rhythm in music and dance.
