French Pavilion brings best of marine technology to Oceanology

26.01.2010
As part of Oceanology 2010, the French national pavilion organised by UBIFRANCE (the French Agency for International Business Development) will showcase the best of French marine technology. Oceanology 2010, the largest international exhibition for marine science and ocean technologies, will be held at Excel (in London) from 9 to 11 March 2010. The French Pavilion will be located at Stands A300/B300/C300/ B250.

Two French maritime clusters – Pôle Mer Bretagne (Brittany Maritime Cluster, in western France) and Pôle Mer PACA (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Maritime Cluster, in south-eastern France) – will also be part of the French Pavilion. The Brittany Maritime Cluster has recently entered into a partnership agreement with the port-city of Southampton, in southern England.

Oceanology International, which takes place in alternate years, welcomes professionals in the field of marine enterprise and research, including manufacturers of underwater vehicles, buoys and radars; specialists in control, defence, security and navigation systems; and experts in oceanography. Oceanology 2010 will take place at the Excel Exhibition Centre in London from 9 to 11 March 2010.

As well as the PACA and Brittany clusters, a wide range of companies will be participating in the French Pavilion. ACSA Underwater GPS is an expert in underwater tracking as well as in marine and underwater robotics, while BMTI specialises in the manufacturing of composite materials and radio-communication materials. CADDEN supplies high-tech measuring systems for positioning, orientation and navigation.

The CESIGMA research centre specialises in the processing of data, signals and images. CORRODYS CRITT is a centre of expertise in marine and bacterial corrosion, while the ENSIETA Engineering College trains students in the design and production of complex industrial systems, whether electronic, IT-based, mechanical or pyrotechnic.

ECO-LINE distributes underwater equipment, whereas FLODIM develops measuring equipment for underwater cavities – the technology being suited to liquid (Sonar), air (Laser-Image), or gas (Sonar-gas) environments.

At Oceanology 2010, the IFREMER marine research institute will present both its ongoing research work and its projects under development. IFREMER is currently looking for industrial partners to develop its research programme, and has recently been working with NKE, an R&D and production company specialising in geographic instrumentation.

Other companies on the French Pavilion will include IN VIVO ENVIRONNEMENT, which carries out research in environmental issues and oceanography, and KLEY France, which develops machines for offshore engineering, shipbuilding and oceanography. LAPP MULLER specialises in the bespoke design of cables and systems, as well as in the manufacturing of specialist cables, and METEOSTRATEGY SARL focuses on meteorology and oceanography.

OSEAN is a specialist in the study and production of scientific and military underwater electronic systems, as well as underwater lighting and vision systems. Also present will be SARL TECHNICAP, a manufacturer of equipment for use in oceanography, and SBG SYSTEMS SAS, which designs orientation and navigation panels.

SIG manufactures seismic reflexion equipment, and SUBSEA TECH specialises in the design and production of instrumentation and intervention systems for marine and underwater areas. Finally, PROVENCE PROMOTION is the regional development agency for the Bouches du Rhône département of southern France, and VAR ACCUEIL INVESTISSEURS is the economic development agency for the Var département of southern France.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
