The knowledge of Internet paths allows operators and scientists to better understand its functioning and to solve various problems. With his collaborators, Kévin Vermeulen, a researcher in the SARA team of LAAS-CNRS, has designed, implemented and evaluated the first open solution capable of exploring the return paths on a large scale. These results are presented at the ACM SIGCOMM Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) on October 25, 2022.

Microplastics enter plankton aggregates, which are then ingested by fish and move up the food chain. Scientists from three laboratories in Toulouse were the first to use atomic force microscopy to study the problem. In work published in the journal Science of the Total Environment, they confirmed the existence of a mechanism where the presence of microplastics favors the aggregation of microalgae and discovered a second, previously unknown mechanism.

In confined spaces, cells modulate their proliferation through little-known mechanisms. By studying baker's yeast cells, scientists have discovered that an increase in crowding in these cells is linked to a decrease in protein production. Published in Nature Physics, this work presents new avenues for studying solid tumors, which are precisely confined to organs.

Scientists from the OASIS team at LAAS-CNRS have designed and fabricated an integrated optical sensor that measures the refractive index of the surrounding medium with very high sensitivity over a wide spectrum of wavelengths. This novel result opens a new way to realize ultra-sensitive integrated refractometers for the detection of chemical species, with potential applications in environmental monitoring and many industrial processes.

The actuators of a dynamic system, such as the ailerons of an airplane or the valves of a hydraulic device, are sometimes pushed to their maximum amplitude. This saturation must be well understood in order to prevent it from disturbing or even damaging the whole mechanism. To this end, researchers from the MAC team at LAAS-CNRS and the L2S lab have developed a mathematical approach that allows to better characterize the safe operating domain of a system whose actuators are saturated.
