Toward improved integration of bioceramic implants

Bioceramics are particularly useful in the repair and reconstruction of bone. A group of researchers at the University of Limoges investigated the impact of bioceramic surface topography and composition on protein adhesion forces.

Bio-fuels research – fat stored in bacteria

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.

Analyzing roughness of glass subjected to acid attacks

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.
