Abstract
(EN)
An improved method for the design and development of high performance hybrid devices having biological and nonbiological components. A figure of merit is developed for the biological component or components. The component is subjected to various environmental variables as it or its biological source organism is grown. The biological component is force adapted to cause its figure of merit to reach a goal or an acceptable measure. The biological component is used in hybrid constructs that may be nanostructures, given the small size of the biological parts. In one specific embodiment, force-adapted chlorosomes of C. aurantiacus enhance performance of a silicon photovoltaic cell. The bacteria, Chloroflexus aurantiacus (C. aurantiacus), strain J-10-fl, has the A.T.C.C. designation number 29366, having been deposited in July, 1976.

Procédé amélioré de conception et de développement de dispositifs hybrides haute performance possédant des composants biologiques et non biologiques. Ce procédé consiste à créer un facteur de mérite pour le ou les composants biologiques, à soumettre ce composant à différentes variables environnementales simultanément à sa croissance ou à celle de son organisme source biologique, à faire subir à ce composant biologique une adaptation forcée afin de provoquer l'atteinte d'un but ou la prise d'une mesure acceptable par son facteur de mérite. Ce composant biologique est utilisé dans des constructions hybrides pouvant être des nanostructures, étant donné la faible dimension des parties biologiques. Dans un mode de réalisation spécifique, les chlorosomes soumis à une adaptation forcée de C.aurantiacus amplifient les performances d'une pile photovoltaïque au silicium. Le bactérie Chloroflexus aurantiacus (C.aurantiacus), souche J-10-fl, possède le numéro de nomenclature A.T.C.C. 29366, qui a été déposée en juillet 1976.
