Unconventional Principles 
of ThermoElectric Generation
ID: 338179
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2019-07-31
The performance of thermoelectric generation has long since been limited by the fact that it depends on hardly tunable intrinsic materials properties. At the heart of this problem lies a trade-off between sufficient Seebeck coefficient, good electrical properties and suitably...

Beyond Biopolymers: Protein-Sized Aromatic Amide Functional Foldamers
ID: 320892
Start date: 2013-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
Nature has evolved ultimate chemical functions based on controlling and altering conformation of its molecular machinery. Prominent examples include enzyme catalysis and information storage/duplication in nucleic acids. These achievements are based on large and complex yet re...

Disarming bacterial weapons in the nucleus:
functional study of Chlamydia nuclear effectors
ID: 282046
Start date: 2012-07-01, End date: 2018-06-30
The high prevalence of Chlamydia infections and the heavy burden they inflict on public health justify the search for novel therapeutic approaches directed against this pathogen. Research on this obligate intracellular bacterium is very difficult, due to substantial technical...

Novel radical chemistry for complex peptide synthesis and engineering
ID: 617053
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2020-03-31
"Natural products are a constant source of inspiration in chemistry and have played a key role in the development of medicine. Recently, thanks to the progress in genomics and metagenomics, it has appeared that the biosynthetic potential of microorganisms and the complexity o...

Gas and Dust from the Stars to the Laboratory: Exploring the NanoCosmos
ID: 610256
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2020-07-31
Evolved stars are the factories of interstellar dust. This dust is injected into the interstellar medium and plays a key role in the evolution of astronomical objects from galaxies to the embryos of planets. However, the processes involved in dust formation and evolution are ...

Holistic evaluation of light and multiwave applications to high resolution imaging in ophthalmic translational research revisiting the helmholtzian synergies
ID: 610110
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2020-07-31
The HELMHOLTZ project associates two leading neighbouring institutions: the Institut de la Vision (Fondation Voir et Entendre) and the Institut Langevin (Fondation Pierre-Gilles de Gennes) committed to boost the integration of technological research in photonics, acoustics an...

Effects of phosphorus limitations on Life, Earth system and Society
ID: 610028
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2020-08-31
P is an earthbound and finite element and the prospect of constrained access to mineable P resources has already triggered geopolitical disputes. In contrast to P, availabilities of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) to ecosystems are rapidly increasing in most areas of the globe. T...

Frontiers in Quantum Materials Control
ID: 319286
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2019-09-30
The overarching goal of the present proposal is to exploit materials design, coherent optical methods and multiple theoretical approaches to deterministically control ordered states of strongly correlated electron materials, also referred to as “quantum” or “complex” material...

Ultracold Quantum Matter
[PROJECT] UQUAM - Ultracold Quantum Matter
ID: 319278
Start date: 2013-07-01, End date: 2019-06-30
Quantum mechanics is the basis of our understanding of the microscopic world. It is also central to the collective behaviour of matter at low temperatures, leading to unique properties that defy our classical intuition. The comprehension of such ‘quantum matter’ and the abili...

Quantitative methods in stochastic homogenization
ID: 335410
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-08-31
This proposal deals with the development of quantitative tools in stochastic homogenization, and their applications to materials science. Three main challenges will be addressed. First, a complete quantitative theory of stochastic homogenization of linear elliptic equations w...
