Early detection and prevention of cardiac dysfunction and heart failure induced by cancer chemotherapeutics – Cardio-oncology
Cardiac dysfunction leading to heart failure can result from anticancer drug-induced cardiotoxicity. It is the second cause of morbidity and mortality among cancer survivors, a group that is growing
By combining fiber-based ultrafast sources with periodically oriented gallium arsenide waveguides, we have sought to optimize optical parametric processes in order to realize high power sources with extended mid-infrared spectra.
TMC/SiC (TM = Ti, Hf) ceramic nanocomposites prepared from Ti-/Hf-modified poly-carbosilanes/-silazanes in order to provide a spectral selectivity to SiC while the metal carbide nanophase is protected against oxydation.
Development of an eXtended Friction Energy –third body Wear approach to predict the fretting wear rate of metallic interfaces. – X-FEW
This project aims at developing a new wear model that unifies the energy approaches (wear volume as a function of friction work dissipated in the interface), the third body theory (ejection flow of the debris bed from the interface) and the contact oxygenation concept (oxygen present in the debris bed modifies the wear process).
We propose an original and thoughtful approach for designing magnetoelectric properties in inorganic compounds, dealing with low dimensional ferromagnetic units (0D blocks, 1D chains, 2D layers) and their alignment under field through metamagnetic transitions. Our candidates possess collinear or canted macrospins of high spin magnetic cations (M = Fe2+, Co2+, Mn2+), separated by non-magnetic and electrical insulating spacers or large cations building up the insulating properties.
Developing bioinspired ceramic composites that are less brittle than conventional ceramics
Hydrogenases, a source of inspiration for the design of molecular catalysts to meet current energy and environmental challenges.
Development of a new generation of nano and microfibers extracting materials for elimination of toxic and strategic metals from liquid waste, providing environmental and economic benefits to industrial players.
2MAC-CSP project aimed at producing new structures for the solar receiver that has to convert the incoming concentrated solar flux into heat, with the minimal radiative thermal losses to the outside environment. The surface of the receiver is directly exposed to the ambient air, therefore it has to resist to the oxidation. The devlopment of anti-corrosion ceramic coatings could extend the lifetime and improve the performance of the solar receiver.
Wearable LIGHT SENSOR ARRAY for medical application with HIGH SPATIAL & CHROMATICAL accuracy . – L-iOs
This project aims to develop a brand new light sensor array for biomedical applications. It is designed to meet the criterion of "non-invasive blood glucose monitoring". It is thought to meet the requ
