During the last decade, research has shown that bio-oil fermentation by micro-organisms is a promising potential source of bio-fuel. Its renewability makes it a good alternative to bio-fuel production.
The goal of the NanoRef programme, involving multiple partners (LP-Cnam, INM, LPUB, Institut Fresnel, Novasic and LNE), is to develop a roughness standard with a quasi-continuum spatial frequency spectrum and to define the appropriate machining and polishing processes.
Bruno Grandidier, research scientist with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), reports on his work, focused on understanding the electronic properties of silicon dangling bonds.
Recently, graphene oxide nanostructures have attracted great interest due to their exceptional physicochemical properties for many applications, including flexible electronics and water purification.
