In his talk, Dr. Georges will present some applications using inorganic photorefractive materials that present potentialities in various fields. He will focus particularly on recent works that gave birth to commercial systems and those that were granted "Best applications of photorefractive materials" in OSA sponsored or co-sponsored Topical Meetings on Photorefractive Effects, Materials and Devices like: - Holographic filtering in telecoms and laser mode filtering. - Dynamic hologram recording: laser ultrasound non-destructive testing. - Holographic interferometry for metrology and non-destructive testing. Dr. Georges will discuss the figures of merit of recording materials and try to initiate a debate for new application potentialities related to new photorefractive or photosensitive materials.

Cette étude présente la difficile mission des inspecteurs du travail du Burkina Faso devant appliquer la loi afin de protéger les enfants travailleurs. Dans un pays où 45% de la population vit sous le seuil de pauvreté, les inspecteurs font face à des nombreuses obstacles dans leurs pratiques. Ils doivent en permanence gérer la marge du risque entre, d’une part, appliquer la loi sur la protection de l’enfance et, d’autre part, reconnaître les réalités de vie des personnes. La conclusion montre que les inspecteurs font face à une mission impossible et que la politique de protection de l’enfance ne peut être efficace sans moyens de sa mise en œuvre. [less ▲]

Le nez électronique avec une configuration très simple fournit des résultats encourageants pour détecter une odeur dans l’environnement. Il existe un réel espoir de pouvoir fabriquer des instruments portables capables de prévoir une odeur inconnue en temps réel sur le terrain. Le monitoring des odeurs environnementales est un challenge, mais une simple estimation est suffisante, il n'y a pas besoin de conditions opératoires très rigoureuses. Il reste néanmoins beaucoup de travail à faire avant que le nez électronique ne devienne une réalité dans l’environnement. La communication présente ce challenge en l'illustrant par de nombreuses applications réalisées par l'équipe de recherche. [less ▲]

Multiplex PCR was used to detect Fasciola gigantica infection in Lymnaea viridis snail as intermediate host. In this study, snail Lymnaea viridis was experimentally infected with F.gigantica and used for DNA template. Fasciola specific primers was amplified a 124 bp fragment in multiplex PCR when the genomic DNA isolated from F.gigantica infected Lymnaea viridis snails was used as template and amplified a 500 - 600 bp fragment. Genomic DNA of the parasite was used as a positive control, which also gave an amplification of the 124 bp fragment. DNA isolated from non-infected snails was used as a negative control and no amplification of this sequence was observed. The developed diagnostic multiplex PCR will be of use for assessment of transmission of fascioliasis in snail as intermediate host in Vietnam. [less ▲]

Assessment of injection lag transport and uniformity of direct injection boom sprayer is an important issue for successful variable rate spraying technology. To estimate the boom lag transport and pressure loss, a numerical model is formulated on the basis of fluid hydrodynamic conservation equations. The software is implemented in visual basic. To solve the pressure – velocities equations, control volume finite element method (CV) is used to delimit elementary volumes of the boom. Linearization of the conservation laws is ensured by considering discrete form of the equations and calculating velocity and pressure step by step throughout the whole boom. The flow behaviour is simulated into a boom section divided into N elementary volumes, each of them including one nozzle. To test the model, three boom diameters (5, 6 and 8 mm) and two chemical viscosities (10-6 and 10-5 m2/s) were used. Experimental trials are carried out on boom having 2.5 m length (5 nozzles) for measuring pressure gradient and lag transport. Results showed that the model can predict the pressure losses and the lag transport accurately (error within 5%) to optimize boom designs. [less ▲]

We study targeted energy transfer (TET) [1] from a linear damped oscillator (LO) to a light attachment with essential stiffness nonlinearity, caused by 1:1 transient resonance capture (TRC). First, we study the underlying Hamiltonian dynamics and show that for sufficiently weak damping, the nonlinear damped transitions of the system are strongly influenced by the underlying topological structure of periodic and quasiperiodic orbits of the hamiltonian system. Then, we formulate conditions that lead to effective or even optimal TET from the linear system to the nonlinear attachment. Direct analytical treatment of the governing strongly nonlinear damped equations of motion is performed by applying L. Manevitch’s complexification – averaging (CX-A) method [2] to perform slow-fast partition of the transient responses, and analytically model the dynamics in the region of optimal TET. This analysis determines the characteristic time scales of the dynamics that influence the capacity of the nonlinear attachment to passively absorb and locally dissipate broadband energy from the linear oscillator in an optimal fashion.

The implementation of regular and relevant evaluations of surveillance systems is critical in improving their effectiveness and their relevance whilst limiting their cost. The complex nature of these systems and the variable contexts in which they are implemented call for the development of flexible evaluation tools. Within this scope, participatory tools have been developed and implemented for the African swine fever (ASF) surveillance system in Corsica (France). The objectives of this pilot study were, firstly, to assess the applicability of participatory approaches within a developed environment involving various stakeholders and, secondly, to define and test methods developed to assess evaluation attributes. Two evaluation attributes were targeted: the acceptability of the surveillance system and its the non-monetary benefits. Individual semi-structured interviews and focus groups were implemented with representatives from every level of the system. Diagramming and scoring tools were used to assess the different elements that compose the definition of acceptability. A contingent valuation method, associated with proportional piling, was used to assess the non-monetary benefits, i.e., the value of sanitary information. Sixteen stakeholders were involved in the process, through 3 focus groups and 8 individual semi-structured interviews. Stakeholders were selected according to their role in the system and to their availability. Results highlighted a moderate acceptability of the system for farmers and hunters and a high acceptability for other representatives (e.g., private veterinarians, local laboratories). Out of the 5 farmers involved in assessing the non-monetary benefits, 3 were interested in sanitary information on ASF. The data collected via participatory approaches enable relevant recommendations to be made, based on the Corsican context, to improve the current surveillance system. [less ▲]
