The teams

PVMH group





When it was created in the 1970’s, the group was called "SMO" (solides mal organises) or "BOS" in English, for "badly organised solids" but its expertise in fact covered a large part of "soft matter"...

Prof. Jean-Yves Cavaillé was behind the name change and "PVMH" became the official name at the beginning of the 2000’s. One thing that has not changed is the scientific expertise: our team is concerned essentially with the structure-property relations of polymers but also more generally, with disordered materials (metallic glass, inorganic glass etc.).
