Digital simulation: toward an alternative tool in the medical sector

The mathematical modelling of real-life phenomena attempts to identify the main mechanisms that are involved in their happening. This modelling makes it possible in particular to make digital simulations of them with a computer. After reproducing the phenomenon, the idea is then to try to act in such ...

Plasmas: from the Earth to distant galaxies

The plasma state is the fourth state of matter. In our immediate environment, we only encounter it in exceptional situations such as in lightning during storms and neon signs. It is thus less well known than the three other states (solid, liquid, gas).

However, this state, where matter is ionised, comprising ...

When spectroscopy unveils the secrets of art

Antique ceramics, medieval stained glass windows, easel paintings, wall paintings, metal objects – if these all evoke a different time period, what they have in common is the extraordinary fragility of their material. Therefore, how can these treasures and their particular technology be investigated ...

Analytical sciences: very discreet detectives

Whether it is the traceability of genetically modified organisms, the analysis of industrial, urban or agricultural effluents, the identification of criminals or the drug-taking of athletes, analytical chemistry is a field where there is strong social and economic demand. In constant evolution, it must ...

UPMC on the SUN (SOLEIL): New spectroscopic methods

Whether it is fundamental or applied science, the border is never very clear. Understanding the intimate properties of matter is today one of the preliminary stages in the development of new technologies.

Research and development also play a fundamental role in electronics in the study and development ...
