Abstract: MEMS mirror have been developed since the early 90’s, originally for telecom-switching application, but also in parallel for scanning-based laser projection systems with the great benefit of providing a projected image with very large color gamut, always-in-focus, ultra-small and low power. Lemoptix, a spin-off from the EPFL Micro-Systems laboratory was one of the pioneer ... Read more about "Laser-MEMS scanning mirror for ultra-miniature video projection"

Abstract: Closed geodesics on the surface $\text{PSL}_2(\mathbb{Z}) \backslash \mathbb{H}$, where $\mathbb{H}$ is the upper half plane, satisfy an asymptotic law that is very similar to the one describing the distribution of prime numbers. Moreover, the error term in this asymptotic law is related to the spectrum of the Laplace operator, which is also the set ... Read more about "Error term in the prime geodesic theorem"

Abstract: When an H atom collides with a solid surface, it can transfer some of its kinetic energy into elementary excitations of the solid like phonons and electron-hole pairs. If the atom loses enough kinetic energy, it can become bound to the solid, either on the surface or in the bulk. For a metal, the ...

Abstract: Beyond some critical load, solids under traction break through the propagation of a crack. Under slowly increasing compressive load, the failure mode of materials turns out to be qualitatively different: They first damage rather homogeneously until the emergence of a thin localization band where most fracture mechanisms subsequently concentrates. The specimen then loses its ... Read more about "Intermittency and localization in compressive failure of heterogeneous materials"

Abstract: Mining, smelting, and use of tungsten (W) have increased rapidly in the past few decades, but recently the US EPA declared this element an “emerging contaminant of concern,” because it is likely a carcinogen. Despite the health concerns, remarkably little research has yet addressed the environmental transport and fate of tungsten. As dissolved tungsten ...

In addition to producing energy, mitochondria perform a number of biochemical and signaling functions. Recent evidence suggests that, like neurons in neural networks, mitochondria sense, integrate, and signal. Mitochondria thereby transmit information about external stressors and translate it into molecular and physiological responses. To understand how this influences gene expression and multisystemic neuroendocrine responses to ...
