La Directive 73/241 du 24 juillet 1973 avait été adoptée dans le cadre du droit communautaire alimentaire afin d'établir des règles communes pour la composition, les caractéristiques de fabrication,le conditionnement et l'étiquetage des produits de cacao et de chocolat. Lors des discussions de la Directive, la possibilité d'une adjonction de matières grasses végétales (MGV) autres que celles contenues naturellement dans le cacao n'avait pas pu faire l'objet d'une entente entre les neuf états qui composaient alors la Communauté européenne. Avec l'arrivée de nouveaux Etats, le rapport de force s'est modifié et les négociations pour une révision de la Directive de 1973 ont été relancées en 1996. L'argument principal pour une harmonisation des législations faisait référence à la libre circulation des marchandises avec le Marché unique en faisant valoir que le maintien de normes différentes créait des obstacles aux échanges, cloisonnant le marché du chocolat dans l'Union Européenne. La question qui restait posée était d'autoriser ou pas les matières grasses végétales (MGV). Les plaidoyers en faveur du respect de la tradition et de la qualité et les intérêts des producteurs de cacao n'ont pas réussi à convaincre et la nouvelle réglementation communautaire du chocolat fait à l'évidence le bonheur des multinationales du secteur pour lesquelles son adoption a été une victoire : depuis le 23 juin 2000, la Directive 2000 / 36 abroge la directive de 1973 et permet d'utiliser d'autres MGV, moins chères que le beurre de cacao pour la fabrication du chocolat, dans la limite de 5 % du poids total du produit fini. En théorie, sont considérés comme MGV: l'illipé, l'huile de palme, le sal, le beurre de karité, le kogum gurgi et les noyaux de mangue. Dans les faits, c'est l'huile de palme qui est le produit de substitution. Dix ans après avoir autorisé l'incorporation d'huile de palme dans le chocolat, le consommateur européen découvre les méfaits de celle-ci sur la santé et l'environnement ! Un bien triste constat et ce d'autant que l'adoption de la Directive a privé les planteurs africains (l'offre de fèves de cacao est pour 70% d'origine africaine) d'un revenu bien nécessaire pour lutter contre la pauvreté en zone rurale.

This paper presents an innovative system comprising a water/water heat pump connected to a solar roof and a geothermal heat exchanger. This unit is able to invert its cycle and operate as an Organic Rankine Cycle. The solar roof is producing a large amount of heat throughout the year. This allows covering the building annual heating needs and furthermore, electricity is produced thanks to the surplus of heat in a so-called HP/ORC reversible unit. This paper is focusing on these three main points: modeling, design and experimentation of the prototype. This paper demonstrates the feasibility of such a prototype with encouraging performance in ORC and HP modes. First simulations of the HP/ORC system, with components optimally sized, indicate that, in ORC mode, for the weather conditions of Copenhagen, the electrical energy produced over one year reaches 4030 kWh and the nominal efficiency of the cycle is 7.6%. The nominal COP of the heat pump is 4.2 (condenser exhaust temperature of 60°C and evaporator supply temperature of 15°C). Experimentally, a COP of 4.21 (condensation temperature of 61°C and evaporation temperature of 21°C). is achieved in heat pump mode and a global ORC efficiency of 5.7% is obtained in ORC mode (condenser exhaust temperature of 25°C and evaporator supply temperature of 88°C).

Transportation of oil requires attention for a variety of reasons, the most important being the external costs caused by adverse events. These adverse events affect not only the environment costs but also the societal costs. In this paper, a bi-objective optimization model for a bimodal network of oil transportation is presented. The paper discusses a mathematical model that takes into account two main decision criteria, namely cost and safety. A linear programming model is presented, in which the focus is laid on the different elements that affect the performance of the bi-modal transportation chain of oil. The disturbing elements that are considered include technical failures, road conditions and vandalism acts. Thus, in this study, it is investigated how the bimodal network must be designed to avoid adverse effects caused by these disturbing elements. The goal of the approach is to maximize safety and minimize costs. Data from a real life example (i.e. the Tunisian national oil company) will be used to calibrate the model. [less ▲]

Weather causes a variety of impacts on the transportation system. This paper contributes to the weather-related transport literature by investigating the meteorological variation in revealed preference travel data. The main objective of this paper is to investigate the impact of weather conditions on revealed activity participation (trip motives) and revealed modal choices in the Netherlands. To this end, data from the Dutch national travel household survey 2008 was matched to hourly weather data provided by the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute. Two GEE-MNL models are constructed, namely one for modelling the impact of weather conditions on trip motive and one to assess the effect on modal choice. The parameter estimates of the weather variables indicate that, depending on which travel attribute one focuses, other factors might play a role. Nonetheless, fog, sunshine duration and temperature have a significant impact in both models. Unexpected is the fact that snow and ice cover do not play a role at all. Nonetheless, this finding can be accounted for by the relative low occurrence of these weather types in the study area. It is important to integrate these identified impacts of weather in travel demand modelling frameworks, since this will help to achieve a higher accuracy and more realistic traffic forecasts. This allows policy makers to make better long-term and short-term decisions to achieve various political goals, such as the development towards a sustainable transportation system. Further research in this regard, should emphasize on the role of weather conditions and activity-scheduling attributes. [less ▲]

The NECLIME database gathers data of the fossil flora recorded at many localities around the world at different times of the Miocene. François et al. (Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, 304, 359–378, 2011) have presented a new method for evaluating palaeoclimate model simulations from such fossil floras. In this method, palaeovegetation is simulated from climate model outputs, using a dynamic vegetation model. Model vegetation reconstruction is then compared to the vegetation cover indicated by the fossil flora record at the various localities, using a common classification of plant functional types (PFTs) in the data and the model. Here, we apply this method to test several published Middle Miocene climate simulations conducted with General Circulation Models of different complexity: (a) Planet Simulator, (b) FOAM-LMDZ4, (c) MPI-ESM, (d) CCSM3.0 and (4) CESM1.0. Corresponding palaeovegetation distributions are simulated with the CARAIB dynamic vegetation model, in which an upgraded vegetation classification involving 26 PFTs has been imple- mented. The NECLIME palaeoflora data from 154 localities distributed worldwide have been translated in terms of the presence/absence of these PFTs. A comparison of models and data is then undertaken globally and in selected regions of the world, using all available localities. The level of agreement varies among models, among PFTs and among regions. For instance, some models are able to produce tropical and subtropical PFTs in Europe consistently with the data, but the agreement for these PFTs may be much poorer in other parts of the world, such as in northeastern Eurasia.

During the last decade new excavations and reexaminations of old collection have refreshed our vision of the end of the Middle Palaeolithic. Among those advances, the identification of a "Discoid techno-complex” during the MIS 3 Interpleniglacial event, which differs deeply with other sub-contemporaneous technological practices, reinforce the idea that this period witnessed distinct stone knapping traditions. However, such claims must be established within different geographical and lithological context, in order to invalidate more parsimonious explanations of technical variability. The newly excavated open-air camp site in Ormesson has provided multiple well preserved archaeological layers. The older is dominated by Discoid flaking method and dates to the MIS 3. These occupations took place in a geographical context where flint is not present in situ but was easily available from different sources within the “daily range” of the site. For instance Gravettian and Châtelperronian have preferentially used Campanian flint available 5 km from the site along the Loing River. So far the lithic chaînes opératoires in the Discoid Mousterian layer are characterised by a more limited technical involvement both in term of flint procurement (lower flint quality) and knapping gesture. At the same time, the Neandertal occupants invested considerable effort to extract, import and select the raw ochreous material, whose numerous remains have been found associated with stone tool in the Layer 4. The fact that they did not take advantage of the same trips not only for ochre but also for better flint supply seems problematic. Another characteristic of Ormesson Discoid assemblage is, for the moment, the scarcity of retouched implements, in particular of notches and denticulates which frequently characterize the techno-complex in South-western France. Are such characteristics representative of a state of progress in the excavations? Are they relevant of local techno-economic tactics, or subtle cultural specificities? In addition to ongoing excavation progress at Ormesson, a complementary way to solve these questions will be to enlarge the scope of the analysis to the whole Paris Basin. In that space, Discoidal assemblages have been now studied from very contrasting geographical and lithological contexts. For instance, Arcy-sur-Cure cave sites, on one side, Beauvais and Mennecy open-air sites on the other side, are respectively located at the very margin and near the center of the limestone dominated basin. As a consequence we observe great variations of flint availability from these different contexts. The preliminary comparison of the datas available confirms the existence of similar knapping methods and goals during a limited period, broadly centered on the MIS 3. But it also suggests some intrinsic adaptability of the Discoid typo-technological system to raw material nature and availability. When replaced in that perspective, the different characteristics of stone tool production currently recognized at Ormesson don’t appear, so far, to underline any cultural peculiarity on that site and fit with a coherent vision of the Discoid techno-complex also in Northern part of France. In return, the singular preservation of Ochre at Ormesson, offers a punctual opportunity to integrate what we increasingly know about these knapping habits with more obscure but anyway complementary aspects of a cultural system.

Besides long-standing works on experimental characterisation of geomaterials in laboratory tests computational geomechanics has been the subject of theoretical and numerical works for a long while. Recently, multi-scale analysis using a numerical approach of the homogenisation of the microstructural behaviour of materials to derive the constitutive response at the macro scale has become a new trend in numerical modelling. DEM takes part of this multi-scale analysis as a microscale configuration for each one of the integration points of a macroscale FEM scheme. Compared with analytical constitutive law models, this approach allows us to take into account in a natural way the inherent anisotropy and rheology of the material and at the same time to perform real-size macroscale problems which would be impossible with pure DEM code. The counterpart of this approach is linked to the computational cost, nevertheless, while in a analytical law model the critical part of the computation is the solver of the global stiffness matrix, in the DEM-FEM approach the critical part is the integration of the microstructure, which can be efficiently optimized using parallel computing paradigms, this possibility makes the DEM-FEM code a promising candidate for continuum mechanics multiscale modelling. An implementation of the FEM-DEM method in the FEM code Lagamine (ULg) is presented, and representative results are discussed, including aspects related to strain localisation in this context.

This research presents the determinations of household land use strategy in the context of the rapid rural changes due to the industrialization and urbanization in Vietnam. The mechanism that turns land to livelihood from both productive and non-productive processes is investigated to understand the different land use strategies of smallholders in Red River Delta region. Based on the presence of migrating members, the total selected 191 households in Hai Duong province were divided into 3 different groups to do the surveys. The research results show that local land use strategies are various in which 79.06% of surveyed households maintain the allocated land for agricultural production while 65.97% of households leave land idly at least once a year. The factors from productive process such as small landholding, high production cost and overall downward income from agricultural production meantime the greater opportunities from non-farm jobs are the main socio-economical determinations of agricultural land abandonment or less effective use. The security questions of shifting livelihood between farming and non – farming sectors, the inter-household arrangements, the social supports and the institutional constraints are non-productive elements that make the exchange and other forms of commercializing agricultural land are less prominent. The complexity of household land use strategy and its determinations not only reflects the dynamism and flexibility of peasant’s livelihood adaptation but also explain why the land concentration does not proceed faster in Red River Delta region of Vietnam.

En Wallonie, région située au Sud de la Belgique, les capitaux mobilisés pour l’activité agricole sont nombreux, variés mais surtout importants. Parmi les capitaux engagés, le capital foncier est l’une des composantes importantes du patrimoine de l’exploitation agricole. Ce dernier influence directement les décisions qui sont prises à long terme en son sein à savoir, sa politique d’investissement mais également les éléments relatifs à son cycle d’exploitation et à sa trésorerie. La problématique foncière ne doit donc pas être analysée de manière cloisonnée mais doit rester intégrée à la question centrale du financement des exploitations agricoles de manière générale et de la reprise des activités en particulier. Le présent article a pour but de caractériser le capital foncier en Wallonie. Après un descriptif succinct de l’agriculture wallonne, l’importance des capitaux mobilisés pour l’activité agricole en Wallonie par les principaux acteurs du monde agricole est décrite par le biais d’une approche micro-économique basée sur les données du réseau comptable organisé et géré par la Direction de l’Analyse Economique Agricole (DAEA). La deuxième partie, quant à elle, discute de la capitalisation des aides issues de la politique agricole commune (PAC) actuelle mais également future dans le foncier en Wallonie. L’approche est de type théorique et utilise les données de la littérature mais également celles du Système Intégré de Gestion et de Contrôle (SIGEC) de la Direction générale de l’Agriculture, des Ressources naturelles et de l’Environnement (DGARNE) du Service public de Wallonie (SPW), qui a en charge l’octroi des aides à l’agriculture. Enfin, la dernière partie du présent document décrit les difficultés propres aux jeunes agriculteurs et aux nouveaux entrants pour accéder au foncier en Wallonie. [less ▲]

CARAIB (Dury et al., iForest - Biogeosciences and Forestry, 4:82-99, 2011) is a state-of-the-art dynamic vegetation model with various modules dealing with (i) soil hydrology, (ii) photosynthesis/stomatal regulation, (iii) carbon allocation and biomass growth, (iv) litter/soil carbon dynamics, (v) vegetation cover dynamics, (vi) seed dispersal, and (vii) vegetation fires. Climate and atmospheric CO2 are the primary inputs. The model calculates all major water and CO2/carbon fluxes and pools. It can be run with plant functional types or species (up to 100 different species) at various spatial scales, from the municipality to country or continental levels. Within the VOTES project (Fontaine et al., Journal of Land Use Science, 2013, DOI:10.1080/1747423X.2013.786150), the model has been improved to include crops and meadows, and some modules have been written to translate model outputs into quantitative indicators of ecosystem services (e.g., evaluate crop yield from net primary productivity or calculate soil erosion from runoff, slope, grown species and various soil attributes). The model was run over an area covering four municipalities in central Belgium, where land-use is dominated by crops, meadows, housing and some forests and was introduced in the model at the land parcel level. Simulations were also performed for the future. In these simulations, CARAIB was combined with the Aporia Agent-Based Model, to project land-use changes up to 2050. This approach is currently extended within the MASC project (funded by Belgian Science Policy, BELSPO) to the whole Belgian territory (at 1 km2) and to Western Europe (at 20 km x 20 km). [less ▲]

Cet article analyse les facteurs structurels, comportementaux et de performance qui déterminent l’accès au crédit des exploitations agricoles au Bénin. Les données ont été collectées auprès de 475 exploitations agricoles. Un modèle logit binomial a été utilisé au cours de l’analyse. Les résultats ont montré que la taille des ménages, la proximité des IMF, l’appartenance à un groupement de solidarité financière et le revenu issu de la principale culture sont les facteurs qui influencent l’accès au crédit. L’analyse des effets marginaux a indiqué que l’amélioration de la proximité des IMF et l’appartenance à un groupement de solidarité financière sont susceptibles d’augmenter significativement l’accès au crédit. Ainsi, nous recommandons l’amélioration du taux de couverture des IMF présentes au Bénin et la sensibilisation des exploitants agricoles à la formation et/ou l’adhésion à des groupements de solidarité financière.

From Lukács to Bourdieu, many significant intellectual developments have taken place and, in fact, one may gain the impression that the critical tradition continues to be based on one key assumption: individuals (workers, social actors, etc.) unconsciously reproduce the social structures of capitalism whilst being alienated by them. They accept the conditions enforced on them and no longer seek to rebel against a system which impoverishes not only their work and culture, but also their [soul]problematic? and creativity. The situation may be even more diree: they ensure the reproduction of the system by seeking to engage in mass consumption at any cost, or by glorifying the dominant values. In this chapter I would like to show that toay, no critical perspective has emerged out of a negative representation of the world such is likely to introduce ‘man’ living here and now as something other than a deeply bastardized being, corrupted, denatured, perverted, inflected, soiled by a civilizing process which owes its perversion to modernity (Rousseau) on the one hand, and to capitalism on the other. As we shall see, without making an exception, Honneth has rightly noted that all the authors of the tradition of what he calls ‘social philosophy’ have remained dependent on a form of disgust regarding the world as it is. Yet for me as a sociologist of social movements, it seems difficult to deal with such a [software]? of the new forms of social resistance to domination (Indignados, anonymous, alternative economy, movements of the ‘-less’ – see Frère and Jacquemain, 2013), even though it is precisely the same kind of diagnosis adopted by a significant number of theories dealing with cooperation and association. Some amongst them leave me sceptical, notably when it comes to the shared desire to [locate,]posit? for instance, an alternative and [solidary]? economy in the field of utopia, as opposed to a succinct and time-honoured representation of Marxism (Pessin, 2001; Pradès, 2012; Hély and Moulévrier, 2013), or to subscribe to the 'natural' reciprocity of human beings as they lived before the arrival of capitalist modernity, , thus before the ideology of growth perverted human imagination (Godbout, 2000). is this right? In my opinion, in order to be able to talk about contemporary reactions of resistance against diverse forms of alienation and domination authorized by contemporary [connectionist]? capitalism, a philosophical representation of the passive, unconscious human reified by this very same domination, which only a few holy utopian thinkers would avoid, remains ineffective. This is because, in the case of such a representation, the modern subject will be likely to react when criticism will have taken away that layer of impurity specific to the condition of alienated man in order to allow him to renew his deep nature, the one which was his in the context of the ‘good life’ , as Habermas and Honneth would say . Yet abolishing the very possibility of transcendentalism and idealism which lies implicit in contemporary critical theories, whether French or German, opens the door to the possibility, in the incertitude of the social model that they may create, of an actual – but profane – criticism of capitalisme. Here, it is a matter of human relationships in the world that gives criticism its content, in all their insurmountable impurity, in all their contingency. Aiming at abolishing the transcendental anthropological foundations that criticism has always allowed itself, this gesture is currently silhouetted not in philosophy but, rather, in a sociology, that is, ‘pragmatic sociology’. Parallel to the classical Marxist tradition traversing Bourdieu’s critical sociology and the intellectual tradition of the Frankfurt School, it is a form of ‘critical materialism’ that I would like to exhume in this chapter, a notion inspired by the libertarian Marxism of Lefort and Castoriadis (see Frère, 2009), which is able to make the profane capacities of people’s emancipation emerge . I would like to do so on the basis of a reflection revolving around the pragmatic perspective which has recently been reinforced in France by Boltanski in his book De la critique (2009), but which stands – in my view – as the backdrop of all his works.

The main purpose of this work was to optimize a cheap cricket breeding production for local farmers based on unused wild resources. Cricket development (Teleogryllus testaceus (Walker)) was compared according to seven diets composed of different ratio of aerial parts of taro, young cassava leaves, young cashew leaves, brown rice flour (with or without banana slices) and between the traditionally used chicken feed diet. Cricket mortality was low on all diets (<10 %) excepted on the two cashew-based diets (>90 %). Mean adult body mass was significantly higher on chicken feed diet and on the two cassava-based diet than on the other. Moreover, protein percentage in cassava-feed crickets was similar with this of wild crickets. As each villager grows cassava for their tubers without using the leaves, this free available resource could be used to rear crickets in order to contribute to the reduction of protein deficiency and create new source of incomes for local farmers.

In this study, sociocultural and food formulation aspects related to edible insects were investigated on Belgian consumers. Hedonic tests were realized to assess the acceptability of insect-based burgers and insect-based breads. In the first experiment, four burgers (beef, lentil, beef/insect and lentil/insect) were presented to the participants. In the second experiment, entire mealworms, mealworm bread and mealworm crepes were presented to the participants. No difference of appreciations was noticed between a beef and a beef/insect burger and between a lentil and a lentil/insect burger. Crepes made of mealworm flour were slightly preferred in comparison with mealworm bread and entire mealworms. These results confirm that shape and appearance but also popularization and information spreading are key conditions in the acceptation of insect products in western countries and that insects will preferentially be consumed, in the future, if they are presented in an invisible way and associated with familiar flavors.

The integration of immigrants and their offspring is one of the major challenges facing Belgian society. Like other societies in the northern hemisphere, Belgian society is now characterised by ‘super-diversity’ (Vertovec 2007). In comparison with other OECD countries, Belgium seems to face particular difficulties with regards to the integration of its immigrants and their offspring in the fields of access to employment, private housing and education. Stemed from discriminatory practices (Economic and Social Council 2006) these problems constitute however the blind spot of the academy. In this paper, I would like to consider the “postcolonial bonus” hypothesis (Oostindie, 2011) with regards to the Congolese community in Belgium. Belgian’s colonial migration history presents differences with regards to the British, French or Dutch configurations. Nowadays, three generations of Congolese Belgians make up a community that shows a paradoxical socioeconomic integration pattern, combining on average the highest level of education with the highest level of unemployment in Belgian society (Schoonvaere, X). Despite an intense involvment of Congolese Belgians in the academic, associative, political or artistic spheres, several variables point towards a particular post-colonial racialization process. The absence of a public debate on the colonial history of Belgium suggests a link between the marginalization of this group and the colonial legacy of the society that will be developped from a comprehensive sociology and ten years of immersion within the Congolese circles.

From research led for years within pentecostal Congolese circles (France, Belgium, Canada, Kinshasa) this paper explores the religious transformations of diasporic churches. The migratory reorientation, from RDC to Europe and from Europe to Canada, shows a reformulation of “deliverance”, leitmotiv of churches discourses, that informs the historical depth of the religious formation. Considering the continuity of this theology of Salvation with the prophecies of precolonial and colonial periods and the globalization in which Congolese revival is inserted, I look at how spatial mobility influence the colonial memory of theses diasporic groups.

While the political participation of African born again christian has been leading to important research, few interest has been provided to the political participation of African evangelical immigrants. The ethos churches are calling to suggests however the existence of political expressions. Exemplarity (Lorentzen et Rosalina, 2005), « usefull immigration » (Mossière, 2006), combativity and social mobility (Demart, 2008), « virtuous citizenship » (Fumanti, 2010), etc. is the religious empowerment (Ter Haar, 1998 ; Harris, 2006 ; Adogame, 2007) translatable to political discourse, activity or alliance ? From research lead for ten years within Congolese circles in Belgium, I bring to light this issue looking at the political participation of Congolese born again from religious, associative and political lens.

For the purpose of this paper, I will focus on the litigants’ discourses on the law and the State in inheritance cases in Cotonou. As a matter of fact, over the last few years, the number of inheritance disputes handled by the Beninese state courts has drastically increased. In Cotonou, State of Persons courtrooms (Chambres Etat des Personnes) – competent with regards to family matters – are so crowded that people even have to queue outside during registration. Litigants often mention that they “referred to the state” in order to “restore order” within their families. The question is: does the legal system actually manage to meet their expectations? In order to answer that question, I will focus on the legal consciousness of Beninese families and how this shifts throughout the litigation process. How do people understand and utilize state law in inheritance cases? Why do they go to court, and what do they expect from the judiciary? How does their understanding and perception of law adjust as they experience state courts? Finally, how do the aftermath of legal proceedings and the implementation process amend their legal consciousness? Within that framework, Beninese plaintiffs often go from trusting that the state would “restore order” into their family to believing that the judiciary somehow made things even worse. While scholars have investigated how race , gender, or social status influence “the ways people understand and use the law” (Merry, 1990:5), there is however little reflection on the way legal consciousness develops throughout the litigation process. There is also a point to be made about the relationship between the law and the state. In Benin, people “refer to the State” when bringing a case to court and, through the judge, “the State” is the one solving their problems. Within that context, the way people think about and experience legal proceedings in Cotonou is as much about legal consciousness as it is about state consciousness. It is about the legitimacy and efficacy of the state in delivering public service; about governance and power. [less ▲]

In the last decades, polycrystalline fluorine-doped SnO2 (FTO) thin films have received increasing interest due to their promising application in a wide variety of devices such as gas sensors, coatings and electrodes for solar cells. FTO thin films exhibit good electro-optical properties and other important physical properties such as a high work function, good thermal stability… FTO thin films have already been shown to act as an efficient transparent electrode in solar cells. In this work, FTO thin films were grown by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis on glass and flexible polymer substrates. The structural, electronic and optical properties of these FTO layers were thoroughly investigated. Our work focuses on a better understanding of their electro-optical properties, in terms for instance of electron scattering. We show that FTO layers (when combined with ZnO nanoparticles) exhibit haze factor as high as 60%, whilst maintaining very good electro-optical properties. The integration into solar cells is also presented. [less ▲]

Silver nanowire networks have recently been a heavily researched subject due to their potential use as transparent electrodes in solar cells or flat panel displays. Currently, the most commonly used material for such applications (Tin-doped Indium oxide) suffers from two major drawbacks: indium scarcity and brittleness. However, metallic nanowire networks can be deposited by low cost deposition techniques and exhibit simultaneously very promising optical, electrical and electro-mechanical properties. To enhance these properties, nanowire density should be considered. For a given nanowire aspect ratio, lower nanowire densities result in higher optical transparency but demonstrate lower electrical conductivity. As the density of nanowires is increased the relationship is reversed, resulting in high electrical conductivity but low optical transparency. Numerical Montecarlo simulations on stick percolation shed light on the percolative nature of these 2D networks. Relations between simulation and experimental observations are discussed. We also show that thermal annealing can efficiently improve the electrical properties without significantly changing the optical response2. However, above a certain temperature threshold, morphological instabilities occur and induce a cancelling out of the beneficial effects. The physical mechanisms involved in thermal annealing of Ag nanowire networks are addressed as well as their effects on electro-optical properties. Finally the potential integration of Ag nanowire networks into devices is evaluated. [less ▲]
