    15.12.08 — ENAC | Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering The Chair " Innovations for a Sustainable Future " was created as the result of a convergence of values between EPFL and Landolt & Cie, Swiss Private Bankers : to contribute to build a sustainable world for the future generations. On one hand, EPFL is educating future leaders, as well as developing cross disciplinary research, both for facing sustainability challenges. On the other hand, Landolt & Cie, Swiss Private Bankers are promoting high ethical standards and awareness of transmitting patrimony to the future generations. The new Chair, anchored in our School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering, was officially inaugurated in September 2008. It will build its strength from a multitude of concrete and innovative initiatives in teaching, research and technology transfer. As its primary objective, the program will bring every year to the EPFL campus a world-renowned specialist in an area essential to sustainable development. While at EPFL, this invited professor will extend their research, teach EPFL students, help guide semester and Master's projects and organise interdisciplinary and public-oriented activities.

    10.12.08 — Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements We demonstrate, that normal-mode splitting can occur in dynamic backaction cooling in the strong cooling regime. The splitting is associated to a mixing between the mechanical mode and the fluctuation around the steady state of the resonator field. Furthermore it entails a classical limitation of the cooling rate trough the cavity lifetime. Read the whole article
