Controlled dispersion Nitroxide Mediated Polymerization (NMP) of methyl methacrylate (MMA) was successfully carried out for the first time in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) in the presence of CO2-philic perfluorinated surfactant that was generated “in situ”. The control of the MMA polymerization relies on the strategy developed by Charleux et al. that consists of using a SG1-based alkoxyamine, i.e. the block-builder, in the presence of small amount of styrene. In a first step, CO2 soluble polyheptadecafluorodecylacrylate was prepared in scCO2 using block-builder as an alkoxyamine. In a second step, nitroxide SG1 mediated dispersion polymerization of MMA was conducted at 70°C and 300 bar in the presence of 5 w% of SG1 terminated surfactant compared to the monomer. Different monomer to alkoxyamine molar ratios were investigated in order to target different molecular weights. In each case, the monomer conversion was high (>90 %), the experimental molecular weight was in good agreement with the theoretical value and the polydispersity was narrow (Mw/Mn ~1.2). Moreover, after depressurisation of the cell, PMMA was collected as a free flowing powder consisting of small sized microspheres. [less ▲]

An analysis of the data on forward $pp, \bar pp, \pi^{\pm}p$ and $K^{\pm}p$ scattering is performed making use of the single- and double-subtraction integral and comparing with derivative dispersion relations for amplitudes. Various pomeron and odderon models for the total cross sections are considered and compared. The real part of the amplitude is calculated via dispersion relations. It is shown that the integral dispersion relations lead to a better description of the data for $\sqrt{s}>$5 GeV. Predictions of the considered models for the TOTEM experiment at LHC energies are given [less ▲]

Motivated by neutron scattering experiments, we investigate the decay of the fidelity with which a wave packet is reconstructed by a perfect time-reversal operation performed after a phase-space displacement. In the semiclassical limit, we show that the decay rate is generically given by the Lyapunov exponent of the classical dynamics. For small displacements, we additionally show that, following a short-time Lyapunov decay, the decay freezes well above the ergodic value because of quantum effects. Our analytical results are corroborated by numerical simulations. [less ▲]

Stress intensity factors (SIFs) computation techniques based on J-integral methods [1] are widely used in finite element codes. However, the Displacement Extrapolation Method (DEM) [2] is an alternative way to compute them. The idea is to process an extrapolation based on the relative displacement of the crack face nodes. This method is generally less accurate than integral methods, but it requires much less computational resources. The method is well documented and is implemented in some finite element software. The X-FEM introduced in [3] is suited for crack problems. However, the literature on DEM in the X-FEM case seems to be non-existent in the present time. This paper tries to fill this lack in the literature by describing a new method using X-FEM. The approach followed here is only developed for Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics. Note that the finite element software Code_Aster [4] already computes SIFs with DEM in X-FEM, but in a slightly different way. [less ▲]

Deformation metrology of complex shape space structure and reflectors is a recurrent problem addressed by ESA. Consequently, suitable measurement techniques have to be developed and validated to support relevant on-ground qualification and verification testing. Holographic techniques in the visible wavelengths are common for measuring the surface displacement of object. However the short wavelength induces high stability criteria which are so severe that they often prevent the measurement of large space structures under good conditions. We propose to use a wavelength longer than the usual visible ones to render such holographic displacement measurement techniques less sensitive to external perturbations. For this we consider CO2 laser emitting at 10.6 μm which correspond to the long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) spectrum. The most important element for performing holography is to use an adequate recording medium. However no convincing holographic recording media exists in LWIR and we decided to investigate the possibility of electronic hologram recording, such as electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI). This possibility is feasible nowadays thanks to various thermal imaging technologies such has uncooled microbolometers sensors commonly found in thermographic cameras. In this study, we analyse how it is possible to measure surface displacements of specular objects, which do not produce speckle, using speckle interferometry by the mean of a scattering diffuser. We then apply the ESPI technique at LWIR for measuring displacements of a large parabolic reflector. [less ▲]

Environment plays a major role for determining the kind of courtship behaviours or alternative mating tactics employed, but the effect of physical variables on fitness has received little attention. The Alpine newt courts during both day and night times and exhibits a complex suite of behaviours involving olfactory, visual and tactile cues. Displaying in both dark and light conditions may increase the number of mating opportunities and alleviate predation risk, but the frequency and efficacy of the various tactics deployed may vary across light conditions, leading males to vary their use of these tactics across different light regimes. To test this hypothesis, we video-recorded sexual encounters at two light intensities in a controlled experimental design. When courting in the dark, males used comparatively more olfactory rather than visual displays. They also relied more on positive feedback from the female before releasing a spermatophore for her to pick up. The particular mix of tactics used under each light condition is likely to be adaptive because in the dark (1) visual communication is hampered, making olfactory displays possibly more effective and (2) males depositing spermatophores are more likely to lose fertilizations to competitors. Mating in light and dark conditions has similar reproductive payoffs, which shows that displaying in the dark is not detrimental and may even be advantageous if predation risk is reduced at night. These results confirm the importance of taking into account physical variables to understand the evolution of sexual communication in animals. [less ▲]
