Advanced synthesis and characterization of new organic-inorganic chalcogenides, combining porosity, electronic conductivity and multiple redox activity
The purpose of INMoSt is the realization of low-cost, high-efficiency, multi-junction solar cells using a single material family, namely III-nitride semiconductors. This target becomes possible by combination of a series of innovative technologies. <br />The first milestone will be the demonstration of beyond-state-of-the-art, free-standing, and flexible InGaN-based SCs. The ultimate goal will be the fabrication of a stack of such SCs, using a process fully compatible with conventional IC technology.
INTerface reactivity, microstructure and stress Evolution during thin film GRowth: multi-scALe modelling and experimental validation – INTEGRAL
The «INTEGRAL« project aims to develop a multiscale, robust and realistic modeling tool for the growth of thin metallic films by physical vapor deposition, and in particular under energetic conditions such as those of spray deposition. cathodic tube with the ultimate aim of studying the processes of stress generation and relaxation.
Morphogenesis, organization and functions of liquid viral factories formed by Mononegavirales – LiquidFact
Infection of the cell with the rabies and measles virus induces the formation of viral factories (VF) that house the synthesis of viral RNAs. VFs are liquid organelles formed by phase separation. We want to characterize the composition and organization of UVs; identify the molecular bases behind the phase separation; explore the link between UV, innate immunity and the cellular translation machinery; and understand how virions leave the UV.
This research project is inspired by yet unpublished observations implying the protein diazepam binding protein (DBI)/acyl CoA-binding protein (ACBP) in the control of autophagy, peripheral metabolism, and appetite.
Whether and how histone deacetylase activity is regulated by redox during plant response to high temperature
Light-activated proteins of the rhodopsin family, found in all three domains of life, have also been found to be encoded by giant viruses. Little is known on these virus-encoded rhodopsins. Their structure, oligomeric organization, and function are unknown. In spite of significant similarity, viral rhodopsins differ greatly from known rhodopsins. These proteins could involve novel biological mechanisms and sustain possible applications in optogenetics.
In France, heating networks are largely dependent on fossil fuels (42%), and deep geothermal energy represents less than 5% of the energy mix of heating networks. Deployment of geothermal energy in large cities is limited by a geological risk, difficult to predict. UPGEO will work to develop a predictive numerical tool to perform thermo-hydro-mechanical simulations and assess the performance at a given location in Ile-de-France on its geothermal potential.
Mechanical Energy Storage and Absorption in Microporous Materials by High-Pressure Intrusion of Electrolyte Solutions – MESAMM
Mechanical Energy Storage and Absorption in Microporous Materials by High-Pressure Intrusion of Electrolyte Solutions
This approach combining experimental and theoretical should lead to a real synergy which will help experimenters to pilot, rationalize and improve the design of catalysts, and theorists to validate their calculated structures and their reaction mechanisms.
