  1. Léna Soler, Frédéric Wieber, Catherine Allamel-Raffin, Jean-Luc Gangloff, Catherine Dufour & Emiliano Trizio (2013). Calibration: A Conceptual Framework Applied to Scientific Practices Which Investigate Natural Phenomena by Means of Standardized Instruments. Journal for General Philosophy of Science / Zeitschrift für Allgemeine Wissenschaftstheorie 44 (2):263-317.
    This paper deals with calibration in scientific practices which investigate relatively well-understood natural phenomena by means of already standardized instrumental devices. Calibration is a crucial topic, since it conditions the reliability of instrumental procedures in science. Yet although important, calibration is a relatively neglected topic. We think more attention should be devoted to calibration. The paper attempts to take a step in this direction. The aims are two-fold: (1) to characterize calibration in a relatively simple kind of scientific practices; (2) (...)

  2. Catherine Allamel-Raffin (2011). The Meaning of a Scientific Image: Case Study in Nanoscience a Semiotic Approach. [REVIEW] NanoEthics 5 (2):165-173.
    This paper proposes a new approach for analysing daily activities in a laboratory. The case study presented is an analysis of shop-talk around a microscope. In addition to the classical approaches, such as ethnomethodology and anthropology of science, I argue that a microsemiotic approach could be useful to better understand what is at stake. The semiotic approach I shall use here was proposed by a group of Belgian semioticians: Groupe μ. This semiotic approach leads to a constructivist point of view: (...)

    Our aim in this article is to show how a strategy used in the experimental sciences, strategy that we named “inter-instrumentation”, can minimize the role of micro and macro-sociological factors when one tries to understand how the debates about the interpretation of the data come to an end. To defend our point of view, we will present two examples: an historical example – the invention, of the Scanning Tunneling Microscope – and an example collected during an ethnographic study in a (...)
