Work on ozone by P. Honvault (ICB) and G. Guillon (ICB) among the INP (CNRS) breaking news list

Pascal Honvault, Professor UFC (Besançon), and Grégoire Guillon, Assistant Professor uB (Dijon), both members of the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne-ICB in the SMPCA group, had their work on strastopheric ozone selected as a CNRS Institut de Physique editorial choice. They have highlighted a strong quantum effect due to the indistinguishability of the three identical […]

Brain-Inspired Photonic Computer

Main UBFC partners: FEMTO-ST (optics and Energy departements), Labex ACTION (chair of excellence Nadia Steiner), Laboratoire de Mathématiques de Besançon, FC Lab, INSERM One of the world’s fastest photonic computer is made by FEMTO-ST. Digital electronics and standard computers have reached their limits in dealing with complex tasks, such as dynamical data classification, processing information […]

Three projects from the axis « Smart Environments » of the LE2I Laboratory

Fast prototyping of a SoC-based smart-camera: a real-time fall detection case study B. Senouci, ︎ I. Charfi, ︎ B. Heyrman ︎, J. Dubois ︎, J. Miteran   Smart camera, i.e. cameras that are able to acquire and process images in real-time, is a typical example of the new embedded computer vision systems. A key example […]

Echo phenomena observed in an ensemble of laser-aligned molecules

Group of Femtosecond Processes & intense Laser (PFL) Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne (ICB), UMR 6303 CNRS-Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté, DIJON, FRANCE In 2015 we have reported on one of the simplest classical systems featuring the echo phenomenon—a collection of randomly oriented free rotors with dispersed rotational velocities. Following excitation by a pair of time-delayed impulsive […]

Sustainable Chemistry in ICMUB

Research directed towards sustainable chemistry and eco-compatible processes is conducted within the framework of the regional program PARI II CDEA (Chimie Durable pour l’Environnement et l’Agroalimentaire) and the CPER (Chimie Durable pour l’Environnement, l’Energie et l’Agroalimentaire). Two representative examples are presented below. Octopus polyphosphine for sustainable catalysis In 2009 a Valorisation Project (VP) named “Couplages […]
