Introduction It is well known that injured tendons do not heal easily. For example, tendinopathy is a condition which often becomes chronic in the case of bad or late management. Recently, several studies, essentially in vitro and, more recently, a few in clinical practice, have demonstrated the positive effects of platelets on the healing process of different tissues. In fact, platelets contain lots of growth factors which can be released after a local injection. These growth factors have the potentiality to enhance the tendon healing process, for example after rupture or tendinopathy. The aim of our experiment was to ascertain whether the use of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) was of interest for accelerating the healing process of Achilles tendon after surgical induced lesion. Methods All experimental procedures and protocols used in this investigation / were reviewed and approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee of the University of Liège. 60 rats were divided into 2 groups: A: control (no injection) and B: PRP injection. A 5mm defect was surgically induced in the rats’ Achilles tendon after resection of plantaris tendon. Rats of group B received a PRP injection in situ after the surgery. Afterwards, rats of both groups were placed in their cages without immobilization. After 5, 15 and 30 days, the traumatized Achilles tendons of 10 rats of both groups were removed and dissected during their healing process. Immediately after sampling, tendons were submitted to a biomechanical tensile test up to rupture, using a “Cryo-jaw”. Rats were then euthanized. Statistical analyses were made with an ANOVA. Values are significant when p-value is below 0.05. Results We observed that the force necessary to induce tendon rupture during biomechanical tensile testing increased with time in both groups; that this force was greater for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of PRP. The ratio between force and weight increased with time in both groups; that this ratio was greater for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of PRP too. There is also a significant interaction between time and the group. The surface area of the section of the tendons increased between 5 and 15 days followed by a stabilization. After 30 days, sections in both groups were similar. Thus, the constraint was similar after 5 and 15 days but is significantly better for PRP group after one month. Discussion – Conclusion We demonstrated that the force necessary to induce tendon rupture during biomechanical tensile testing was greater for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of PRP. These results were observed and significant (p<0.05) from day 5 onwards. We observed too that the section of the tendon was the same in both groups after 30 days. Thus the quality of the healing tendon is better with an injection of PRP, as shown with the increase of the constraint until rupture.

Introduction: Tendon lesion is one of the most frequent pathology in sports and by physical workers. This pathology often becomes chronic. For this reason, it is of interest to develop new treatments. Injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) seems to be a promising one by releasing growth factors (GF) locally. Among all the GF released by activated platelets, the vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) is known to induce positive effects on vascular function and angiogenesis, and could be implicated in the healing process of tendons. Recently, a novel VEGF-A isoform was identified, the VEGF-111, a biologically active and proteolysis-resistant VEGF-A isoform, also known to present beneficial effects on ischemic diseases. This prompted us to evaluate whether VEFF-111 would have a therapeutic interest within the framework of the tendon pathology. Methods: 60 Rats were divided into 2 groups: A: control (no injection), B: VEGF-111 treatment. A 5mm defect was surgically induced in rat Achilles tendon after resection of plantaris tendon. Rats received a local injection of VEGF-111 (100ng) in situ after the surgery and were placed in their cages without immobilization. After 5, 15 and 30 days, the traumatized Achilles tendons of 10 rats of both groups were removed and dissected during their healing process. Immediately after sampling, tendons were submitted to a biomechanical tensile test up to rupture, using a “Cryo-jaw”. Rats were then euthanized. Statistical analyses were made with an ANOVA. Values are significant when p-value is below 0.05. Results: Our results shown that the developed force necessary to induce tendon rupture during biomechanical tensile test was greater for tendons which had received an injection of 100ng of VEGF-111. These results were already noticed from day 5 onwards. The ratio between force and weight increased with time in both groups, but this ratio was greater for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of VEGF111. The surface area of the section of the tendons increased between 5 and 15 days followed by a stabilization. After 30 days, sections in both groups were similar. Thus, the constraint was similar after 5 and 15 days but was better for VEGF111 group after one month. Discussion - Conclusion: This experimentation has shown that a 100ng injection of VEGF-111 stimulated tendon healing process as suggested by the increased force needed to break tendons during its healing process and the increased of constraint in comparison with the control group. Other experimentations with different concentration of VEGF111 are now in process.

Non-contact optical measurement methods are essential tools in many industrial and research domains. A family of new non-contact optical measurement methods based on the polarization states splitting technique and monochromatic light projection as a way to overcome ambient lighting for in-situ measurement has been developed1,2. Recent works3 on a birefringent element, a Savart plate, allow to build a more flexible and robust interferometer. This interferometer is a multipurpose metrological device. On one hand, the interferometer can be set in front of a CCD camera. This optical measurement system is called a shearography interferometer and allows to measure micro displacement between two states of the studied object under coherent lighting. On the other hand, by producing and shifting multiple sinusoidal Young’s interference patterns with this interferometer, and using a CCD camera, it is possible to build a 3D structured light profilometer. After giving the behavior of the Savart plate, an overview of the two devices will be given as well as their specifications and some applications. [less ▲]

Introduction: The digital sheath is located in the palmar (plantar) face of the distal limb. It consists of a synovium, divided into intimate and vascularised supportive layers, and ligaments that strengthen the tendon sheath in its palmar (plantar) face. The synovium surrounds the digital flexor tendons during their passage within the sheath. The synovium fluid, produced by the filtering of the blood and by the intima cells, allows lubrification within the sheath. Lameness, originating from digital sheath pathology is not rare, and it is important, for any equine practitioner, to know its normal morphology. The aim of this study is to precise the morphology of the digital sheath, particularly its synovium because the literature is not unanimous. Methods: The digitals tips of 7 "sound" horses were collected. Samples were taken within the 3 annular ligaments (Proximal, Digital Proximal, Digital Distal). The digital flexor tendons were sampled with the visceral sheath of the synovial membrane at the level of the proximal sesamoïd bones and just proximal to the medium scutum. All these samples were embedded in tissue-tek and freezed for cryosectioning. The proximal and distal recessus of the synovial membrane were also sampled, fixed in formalin and embedded in paraffin. Sections were stained with haematoxylin/eosin. One sample of the synovial membrane was taken for electronic microscopy and embedded in? Results: Annular ligaments are composed of dense connective tissue but are transversal strengthening of the fascia rather than true ligaments. The digital flexor tendons showed the typical organisation of the collagen network. Type III fibrocytes were observed within the deep digital flexor tendon. The synovial membrane showed two layers: an intima (with visceral and parietal sheath) with fibroblast-like cells and macrophagic cells, and a sub-intima composed of fibrous tissue that was sometime so thickened that it was difficult to cut! The recessus contained large synovial fringe with adipose tissue. Conclusion: This study permitted to precise the morphology of the digital sheath in horse which may help to better understand the pathological changes. [less ▲]

Introduction: To calculate flexor tendon forces on the basis of inverse dynamic analysis, flexor tendon moment arms need to be determinated in the equine distal forelimb. Moment arm of deep digital flexor tendon (dDDF) and of superficial digital flexor tendon (dSDF) have been recognised to vary during the fetlock joint dorsiflexion, however little distal forelimb model has taken into account dSDF and dDDF variations. This study describes a method to determinate the relationship between the fetlock joint dorsiflexion and the flexor moment arms variations. Methods: Eleven forelimbs of eleven horses (~500 Kg) were collected, transversally cut below the shoulder joint, frozen and cut into a sagittal plane until above the fetlock joint. Considering the forelimb pulley model (Meershoek et al. AJVR 2001; 62 1585-1593), in the segment based coordinate system, for the fetlock joint the pulley centers of the DDF and SDF tendons were determined directly from the section. For the fetlock radius-pulley experiments, forelimbs were thawed overnight, fixed to an immobilizing support and attached to a hoist that dorsiflexed the fetlock joint. For the fetlock dorsal angle (θ) 180° to 150°, the dDDF and the dSDF were measured directly from the section. For each tendon all of these data were fitted using a polynomial regression model (OriginPro8) and the relationships between θ and the radius pulley variation (∆d) was described assuming that ∆d was zero at θ equal to 180°. Results : When the fetlock dorsiflexion increased, dDDF and dSDF decreased (∆dDDF(150)= -6.1 mm; ∆dSDF(150)= -5.2 mm) according to the following equations: ∆dDDF(θ)= -0.24923 x θ1 + 0.00139 x θ² (R²=0.89867) ; ∆dSDF(θ)= -0.21494 x θ1 + 0.0012 x θ² (R²=0.91504). Conclusions : A distal forelimb pulley model with variable dDDF and dSDF has been performed. It could become an important tool for use in inverse dynamic procedures. [less ▲]

Introduction: This website is a multi-dimensional approach of the locomotor system in domestic animals. The first objective of this anatomical presentation is to establish relation between systemic anatomy and topographic anatomy. The second objective is to teach a practical anatomy that must be adapted to the clinician work. Methods: From the dissection of equine, bovine and canine specimens, osteology, arthrology and myology (OAM) were photographed and filmed. All photos and movies were captioned and designed using Fireworks (Adobe CS4, USA), AVS video converter 6 (MediaTechnologies Ltd, UK) and Divx Author (Divx Inc, USA). The website was designed using Dreamweaver (Adobe CS4, USA). Results: Compared anatomy site consists on dichotomously organised web pages. Each page is transversally and vertically connected with others, and always surmounted by a navigation barr. From the navigation barr we can travel through different drop-down menus (DDM). The first DDM corresponds to the lesson menu (it sends to general OAM) ; the second and third DDMs correspond to the equine picture menu and the bovine/canine picture menu (from them we can navigate in OAM per species and per system using clickable captioned photos and movies, the functional aspects being explained). For practical reasons, equine species is used as animal reference. Indeed only anatomical differences of the other species are detailed and compared. Finally the button Index corresponds to the surgeon view (all of the body is transversally cut, the clickable anatomical structures are sent back to their specific topic web page). Conclusions: Because of the numerous photos and movies, the three-dimensional view is better understood. Because of the transversal and vertical links, the navigation, in whatever level per species or per system or per anatomical cut, strengthens the cognitive process. This website is a fabulous multi-scale tool to teach and to learn the veterinary anatomy. [less ▲]

Introduction: Cardiac troponin I and T are specific markers of myocardial injury that are widely used for the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). In acute chest pain without ST-segment elevation, they are used to differentiate unstable angina from non ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Recently, troponin assays with higher analytical sensitivities became available to enable the detection of minor myocardial damage and identify individuals at higher risk for ACS. As a result of its high tissue-specificity, cardiac troponin T and I are cardio-specific, highly sensitive markers for myocardial damage. The aim of this study was to evaluate the new higher sensitive troponin (T and I) in patients with stable angina and acute chest pain without ST-segment elevation. Methods: Sixty subjects (mean age : 65.5± 11 years), were included: 20 healthy controls, 20 patients with stable angina, 9 with unstable angina (troponin-) and 18 patients with NSTEMI myocardial infarction (troponin+). The protocol was approved by the ethic committee of the University of Liège (Belgium). High sensitive troponin T (hsTnT) determination was realized on heparin plasma by electrochemiluminescence immunoassay on Modular E (Roche Diagnostic). Troponin I II (TnI II) is a chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay for the quantitative determination of cardiac troponin-I in heparine plasma on the ARCHITECT i System (Abbott Diagnostic). The lower detection limit of these assays was 0.005μg/L for hsTnT and 0.01μg/L for TnI II. Stastistical analysis was performed using t test. P value <0.05 was considered significant. Results: HsTNT levels were 0.003(0.003, 0.004) [median baseline (1st, 3rd quartile)]ng/ml in controls, 0.0075 (0.00475, 0.014) ng/ml in stable angina, 0.011(0.006, 0.012) ng/ml in unstable angina and 0.3715 (0.1795, 1.00725) ng/ml in NSTEMI ACS. TnI II levels were 0 (0, 0.001) ng/ml in controls and in patients with stable angina, 0.07 (0.005, 0.014) ng/ml in unstable angina and 1.4475 (0.0407, 2.656) ng/ml in NSTEMI. HsTNT and TnI II levels were significantly increased in NSTEMI as compared to control subjects, patients with stable and unstable angina. TnI II levels were also increased in unstable angina as compared to controls. Conclusion: In our population, TnI II was more sensitive than hsTNT to detect minor myocardial damage in patients with unstable angina as compared to controls. Therefore, future studies will have to determine whether TnI II might contribute to better risk stratification and treatment strategy in this group of patients. [less ▲]

Introduction: A tendon is a tissue which does not heal easily. For example, tendinopathy is a condition which often becomes chronic in the case of bad or overdue management. Several studies, essentially in vitro and, more recently, a few in clinical practice, have demonstrated the positive effects of platelets on the healing process of tendons. A local injection of platelet–rich plasma (PRP), which releases many growth factors, has the potentiality to enhance the tendon healing process. The aim of our experiment was to ascertain whether the use of PRP could accelerate the healing process of an Achilles tendon after a surgically induced lesion. Methods (*): PRP was obtained from the blood of 12 Sprague Dawley rats by cardiac puncture under general anaesthesia until the heart stopped beating. Quantities of 1mL of anticoagulant, adenosine-citrate-dextrose-acid (ACD-A), were added immediately to each 4,5mL of blood. The blood was then centrifuged at 180g for 10 minutes. To improve platelet concentration of the PRP, the supernatant was centrifuged for a second time at 1000g for 10 minutes. The platelets were then collected using a gauge pipette. Cell and platelet counts were made by an auto-analyser. Platelet concentration was around 2.2 to 2.9 x106/mm³. A 5mm defect was surgically induced in the Achilles tendon of 60 rats. Rats were divided into 2 groups of 30: A: a control group (no injection) and B: with a PRP injection. The rats of group B received a PRP injection in situ 1 hour after the surgery on the site of the lesion of the Achilles tendon. Fifty micro-litres of PRP were injected in each rat of the PRP group. Platelets were activated by the local presence of collagen in the wound. Afterwards, the rats of both groups were placed in their cages without immobilization. After 5, 15 and 30 days, 10 rats of each group were euthanized. The traumatized Achilles tendon of each rat was dissected and removed. Immediately after sampling, tendons were submitted to a biomechanical tensile test up to rupture, using a tensile machine with a “Cryo-jaw”. Results: We demonstrated that the force necessary to induce tendon rupture during biomechanical tensile testing was greater for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of PRP. These results were observed and significant (p<0.05) from day 5 onwards. Discussion: This experimentation showed that PRP injections could accelerate the tendon healing process and increase the force needed to break tendons in their healing process. This “accelerating” process can be observed and is significant (p<0.05) as early as day 5. Conclusion: PRP, by the local release of growth factors, would be a new therapeutic tool to accelerate tendon healing.

Routine genetic evaluation for milk fatty acids is under development in the Walloon Region of Belgium. The objective of this study was to test the heterogeneity of residual variances and therefore indirectly the potential need to adjust for this heterogeneity if it exists. The residuals were computed as the difference between the observed and the estimated values using a multi-trait random regression test-day model, similar to the Walloon routine model, used for first lactation only milk yield, quantities and percentages of protein (PROT) and fat (FAT), content of saturated fatty acids in milk (g/100g of milk, SAT) and, content of mono-unsaturated fatty acids in milk (g/100g of milk, MONO). Residuals were considered homogeneous inside strata defined, among others, by weeks of lactation, by days in milk and by calendar months of test date. About 6,687,000 records were available for milk yield and for FAT and PROT parameters. For SAT and for MONO, about 184,000 records were available in this database. Means of residuals were stable and close to zero for all traits. Variances were more variable for MONO and SAT than for milk yield, for example. Daily and weekly variances tended to decrease at the end of the lactation (50%). When the variances were computed by month of test date, some variations were observed and some periods of year were more marked. In conclusion, the observed residual variances were less stable for MONO and SAT. We can conclude that introduction for heterogeneous residual variance is more important for the new traits (MONO, SAT) than it was for the old, traditional ones. [less ▲]

Background: Cardiac troponins (cTn) are considered as the best biomarkers for detection of myocardial cell injury. In this study, cTnT and cTnI were measured by new commercially available high-sensitive methods in patients undergoing brief exercise- or pharmacologicinduced stress. Our aim was to compare cTnT and cTnI levels before and after the stress tests, in the patients with or without reversible ischemia. Materials and Methods: Fifty patients (28 men and 22 women) underwent an echographic stress test (ST) for suspected ischemic heart disease. Of these 50 patients, 28 received pharmacological ST (dobutamine injection) and 22 dynamic ST (bicycle exercise). The patients were subdivided into two groups according to the presence or absence of documented transient reversible ischemia: 14 with reversible ischemia ( mean age: 67.71±9.66 y) and 36 without ischemia ( mean age: 63.17±11.72 y). In all patients, cTnT and cTnI concentrations were measured by high sensitive methods (hsTnT, Roche Diagnostics and TnI II, Abbott Diagnostics) on heparin plasma immediately before (T0) and after ST (T1).The lower detection limit of these assays was 0.005μg/L for hsTnT and 0.01μg/L for TnI II. The protocol was approved by the ethics committee of the University of Liège (Belgium). All patients gave informed consent. All statistical analyses were performed using Medcalc version 8.1 for Windows. P value <0.05 was regarded as statistically significant. Results: There was no significant difference between hsTnT concentrations at T0 and T1, neither in the whole patient group, nor in the subgroups of subjects who received pharmacological ST or dynamic ST. The same was true for TnI II. Although there was no change in hsTnT levels during test in ischemic and in non ischemic patients, the latter tend to demonstrate higher median T0 levels (25th, 75th percentiles) than the others [0.011 (0.007, 0.029) vs 0.007 (0.0047, 0.1125) ng/ml, p=0.09]. They also showed higher median T1 levels [0.014 (0.065, 0.03) vs 0.007 (0.003, 0.0102) ng/ml, p=0.08]. Higher TnI II levels were also recorded in ischemic patients as compared to non ischemic patients at T0[ 0.014 (0.0072; 0.0265) vs 0.005 (0.003; 0.01) ng/ml, p=0.08] and T1[ 0.013 (0.0085- 0.03) vs 0.006 (0.0035-0.008) ng/ml, p=0.08]. Also, TnI II levels did not change during test in both subgroups. Conclusions: Measurement of cardiac troponins by high sensitive methods did not allow to detect significant release of biomarkers from the heart during exercise-or pharmacologic-induced ST, even in patients who demonstrated reversible myocardial ischemia. The type of test – pharmacological or dynamic - was without effect. The patients with induced transient ischemia had however higher troponin T and I levels at baseline, this difference remaining during test. [less ▲]

Introduction: As demonstrated in previous studies, mechanical overload, injury and inflammation, hypoxic condition or any combination of the above could lead to increased expression of VEGF in the tendon. Thus, VEGF could participate in the healing of pathological tendons. Indeed, some authors are convinced that this neovascularization is the sign of a chronic tendinopathy while others plead in favour of it being a sign of healing processes. The VEGF111, which is a biologically active and proteolysis-resistant VEGF-A isoform, was recently identified. It is induced by ultraviolet B and genotoxic drugs. Experimentation shows that, in nude mice, tumors formed by HEK293 cells expressing VEGF111 develop a more widespread peritumoral neovascularisation than those expressing other VEGF isoforms. Good angiogenic activity and resistance to proteolysis makes VEGF111 a potential beneficial therapeutic option for ischemic diseases. The aim of our study was to determine whether if VEGF111 could have a therapeutic interest in the framework of tendinous pathology. Methods (*): A 5mm defect was surgically induced in Achilles tendon of 60 rats. Rats were divided into 2 groups of 30: A: a control group (no injection) and B: with a VEGF111 injection. The rats of group B received an injection of 100 ng of VEGF111 in situ 1 hour after surgery on the site of the tendon lesion. Afterwards, rats of both groups were placed in their cages without immobilization. After 5, 15 and 30 days, 10 rats of each group were euthanized. The traumatized Achilles tendon of each rat was dissected and removed. Immediately after sampling, tendons were submitted to a biomechanical tensile test up to rupture, using a tensile machine with “Cryo-jaw”. Statistical analyses were made with an ANOVA. Results: A significant increase over time of the force necessary to induce tendon rupture was observed for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of VEGF111 (p=0.016). The force required to break the tendon is always greater for the VEGF111 group (p<0.05). Discussion: We demonstrated that the force necessary to induce the rupture of a rat’s Achilles tendon during biomechanical tensile testing was greater for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of VEGF111. Thus, this experimentation showed that VEGF111 injections could accelerate the tendon healing process and increase the force needed to break tendons in their healing process. Conclusion: VEGF111 could be a new therapy for tendon lesions. However, other experimentation using a rat model with different concentrations of VEGF111 should be made to ascertain the best concentration for this healing process. Acknowledgement: This experimentation was partially financed by “Standard de Liège” and “Lejeune-Lechien” grants. (*) All experimental procedures and protocols used in this investigation were reviewed and approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee of the University of Liège. [less ▲]

The two-Higgs-doublet model (2HDM) realizes ground states (vacuum) with different properties for different parameter values. The parameters of the effective potential change during cooling of the Universe after the Big Bang. In so doing, the properties of vacuum state can be affected, phase transitions take place. The evolution of phase states and the set of phase transitions can turn out to be much wider than those accounted for within the conventional Standard model (SM) with a single Higgs doublet. The phase history of the Universe is analyzed for any specified set of the 2HDM parameters. All possible variants of the history are considered. Sets of modern, observed, in principle, parameters corresponding to different sequences of thermal phase transitions are determined. Possible cosmological consequences are briefly discussed.

Network Coordinate Systems (NCS) are promising techniques to predict unknown network distances from a limited number of measurements. Most NCS algorithms are based on metric space embedding and suffer from the inability to represent distance asymmetries and Triangle Inequality Violations (TIVs). To overcome these drawbacks, we formulate the problem of network distance prediction as guessing the missing elements of a distance matrix and solve it by matrix factorization. A distinct feature of our approach, called Decentralized Matrix Factorization (DMF), is that it is fully decentralized. The factorization of the incomplete distance matrix is collaboratively and iteratively done at all nodes with each node retrieving only a small number of distance measurements. There are no special nodes such as landmarks nor a central node where the distance measurements are collected and stored. We compare DMF with two popular NCS algorithms: Vivaldi and IDES. The former is based on metric space embedding, while the latter is also based on matrix factorization but uses landmarks. Experimental results show thatDMF achieves competitive accuracy with the double advantage of having no landmarks and of being able to represent distance asymmetries and TIVs. [less ▲]

This study aims at characterizing agricultural soils’ structure depending on the tillage system: conventional tillage or conservational tillage. Tillage reduction is an increasing practice, but the micro-structural effects on soils and on their hydrodynamic parameters are still not well described. Recent research shows non-converging results. Our point is to highlight fundamental differences in structure through characterization of soils porosity’s parameters using X-ray microtomography measurements coupled to image analysis. This attempt is in line with a more integrated experiment of which the aim is to quantify the effects of tillage intensity on lateral flow production, and finally on global water balance. Parameters’ measurements consist in a combined approach, based on two different space-time scales of exploration: fundamental scale, with soil sampling campaign for microtomography analysis, and field scale, with continuous flow measurements (plots’ dimensions: 18*28 m). For their part, parameters for water balance determination (precipitation, evapotranspiration…) are monitored on the field. All of these measurements have the main objective of hydrological modeling enhancement by taking into account a better lateral flow description. Discussion in this paper will focus on the first results obtained by X-ray microtomography measurements. Our experiment takes place in Gentinnes (Walloon Brabant, Belgium), on a field organized in a split-plot scheme. Since 2004, plots have been cultivated in conventional tillage or in reduced tillage. The latter consists in sowing after stubble ploughing of about 10cm. The crop rotation is sugar beet followed by winter wheat. The soil is mainly composed of silt loam. Soils samples, with a 3 cm diameter and a 5 cm height, were removed from the upper layer (Ap horizon) for both management practices. Samples are scanned by X-ray microtomography using a Skyscan-1172 high-resolution desk-top micro-CT system (Skyscan, Kontich, Belgium). The cone beam source operated at 100 kV, using an aluminium filter. The detector configuration, i.e. 1048×2000 pixels 16-bit X-ray camera, and the distance source-object-camera were adjusted to produce images with a pixel size of 17 µm. This resolution allows us to visualize both meso- and macro- porosity. In this study, half the samples were placed under a 15000 kPa pressure (corresponding pressure for the wilting point) in Richards’ apparatus in order to empty the meso- and macro-porosity. To determine a priori the class of porosity for the samples, relations between water retention and pressure head can be plotted using this apparatus. Scanning results consist in 2D images. The 2D images are recombined to form 3D structure. Then the pore network can be analyzed through useful factors like size distribution, shape, connectivity, orientation, tortuosity etc. [less ▲]

Two modeling approaches, analytical and numerical ones were carried out to simulate the mechanical behaviour of a coated metal steel sheet under thermo-mechanical loads. As the metallic film and the polymer layer have different dilatation coefficients, temperature increase and/or humidity variation can result in a compressive state in the metallic film, and yield to bucking. This phenomenon is called wrinkling. It can be prevented by a stiff polymer layer or a stable film due to adapted thickness and mechanical properties. Wrinkling phenomenon has received increasing attention because of important uses of polymeric coating in many industrial applications. To better understand and predict this phenomenon, analytical and numerical models have been developed and compared. [less ▲]

During first metal level interconnects fabrication, a controlled modification of the electro-deposited copper over-deposition (overburden) is performed using a partial chemical–mechanical polishing (CMP) step. Next, copper microstructure is stabilized with a short duration hot-plate anneal. Overburden is then removed during CMP end-of-step. Ionic microscopy and EBSD observations of overburden thickness reduction reveal that copper grain growth occurs differently, according to patterned geometries and with a strong (1 1 1) texture, as observed in modified films. Reduction of overburden thickness also reveals the capacity of anneal temperature to impact electrical performances. Reliability is impacted for thinnest wires. [less ▲]

Cette étude vise à examiner les raisons pour lesquelles la sémiotique a toujours éprouvé de grandes difficultés à élaborer une théorie des mécanismes généraux de la signification — la transversalité du sens par rapport aux différents médias est un de plus grands défis qu’elle s’est donnés — qui, en même temps, rende les énoncés analysables (en effet, le sens de ces derniers ne peut être établi que si on prend en compte la spécificité des substances de leur expression et de leur fonctionnement des culturel). D’un côté, les dernières décennies ont vu surgir des « théories de champ » (théorie de la peinture, de la photographie, du cinéma, etc.) mettant en avant la spécificité des différentes formes expressives ; de l’autre la sémiotique a produit des théories de la signification si générales qu’elles sont impuissantes à mener l’analyse de ces formes expressives (ce qui l’a amené à étudier les organisations discursives indépendamment du parcours génératif de l’expression). Les travaux du Groupe μ démontrent la possibilité de dépasser cette contradiction. S’ils y arrivent, c’est parce qu’ils affrontent la question générale de la perception — manifestation matérielle des signifiants des énoncés textuels — et la question pratique de la production du signe, sans pour autant réifier la spécificité matérielle des énoncés.

In response to ESO's call for proposals for second generation instruments for the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI), a consortium has proposed to design and develop the VLTI-Spectro-Imager (VSI). In the context of the Phase A study, a science group has prepared a science case taking advantage of the expected performances of VSI. Among several science topics, the case of dust making Wolf-Rayet binaries producing the so-called pinwheel nebulae has been considered. Here, we review the main specifications of VSI, and we provide preliminary results expected to illustrate the imaging capabilities of VSI, and the interest for the study of pinwheel nebulae similar to those formed close to well-known systems such as WR98a and WR104.

Massive binaries are crucial laboratories that allow us to investigate processes occurring in quite extreme conditions, such as particle acceleration, high-energy emission, or even dust formation. All these processes are intimately dependent on binarity. Our understanding of the underlying physics strongly requires preliminary multiplicity studies likely to uncover still undetected binaries, and determine their orbital parameters. However, classical spectroscopic approaches sometimes fail to provide a solution to this issue. Long baseline interferometry turns out to be a promising complementary technique to address the question of the multiplicity of massive stars. A campaign has been initiated with the VLTI to take benefit of this technique. [less ▲]

Multi-core CPUs, along with recent advances in memory and buses, render commodity hardware a strong candidate for software router virtualization. In this context, we present the design of a new platform for virtual routers on modern PC hardware. We further discuss our design choices in order to achieve both high performance and flexibility for packet processing. [less ▲]

This paper aims to ask the question whether, in Husserl’s perspective, all consciousness is intentional and to explore the alternatives. Thus, we have proceeded to a thorough analysis of Husserl’s texts concerning temporality and the rather bizarre type of intentionality that it implies. The examining of this intentionality that Husserl calls “longitudinal intentionality” has brought us to the conclusion that its intentional character incomprehensible unless we change our very concept of intentionality which cannot be anymore that of an object-relation, as it were defined in the Logical Investigations. It is, therefore, the very limit of intentionality that is revealed by our questioning the time-consciousness in Husserl. [less ▲]

Two state-of-the-art Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometers are operated at the Jungfraujoch station (46.5ºN, 8.0ºE, 3580m asl) within the framework of the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC, visit http://www.ndacc.org). The earliest FTIR observations have been obtained there in 1984. Since then, regular recordings of high-resolution solar absorption spectra have been performed at that site, under clear-sky conditions, allowing to collect almost 29000 observations relevant to the present communication. We present time series of three greenhouse gases targeted by the Kyoto Protocol: CO2, CH4 (and its isotopologue 13CH4) and N2O. These data sets have been obtained with the SFIT-2 algorithm which implements the Optimal Estimation Method of Rodgers (1990). This allows retrieving total columns of the target gases as well as information on their distribution with altitude. For the methane isotopologues and N2O, a Tikhonov L1 regularization scheme has been applied, as part of an harmonization effort carried out within the European HYMN project (see also Dils et al, 2010; Foster et al., 2010). Trends –and their associated uncertainties– characterizing these long series as well as the seasonal modulations have been determined with a statistical tool using bootstrap resampling (Gardiner et al., 2008). Trend values will be presented and critically discussed; in particular, we will investigate if significant changes in the rate of accumulations of these four atmospheric gases occurred over the last 25 years. Numerous additional greenhouse gases are accessible to the FTIR technique. Examples of such trend studies are reported at the EGU General Assembly by Mahieu et al. (2010) and Rinsland et al. (2010).
