    01.05.08 — ENAC | Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering Close studies of iterative geometric design methods provide a solid understanding of the mathematical construction of freeform geometry for architectural use and structural optimization. The iteratively constructed figures allow a large variety of formfinding possibilities that combine smooth classical figures with folded and fractal shapes. Read the whole article

    10.04.08 — Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements We have been able to demonstrate for the first time that resolved-sideband cooling can be applied to mesoscopic mechanical oscillators. The availability and performance of this technique represents a major step towards the long-sought goal of ground-statecooling of oscillators consisting of trillions of molecules, as it has already been successfully applied to cool single atomic oscillators held in electromagnetic trap to the motional ground state.

    01.04.08 — ENAC | Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering Contact occurs in all structures and machines, from the rubbing of joints in structural components to the adhesion of tires on roads. The high societal cost of friction and wear, together with the advancement of surface-sciencedominated nanotechnologies, are leading to exciting advances in contact mechanics. Read the whole article
