    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.
