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"

The draft tube of a hydraulic turbine is the turbine element located downstream of the runner. It has a divergent shape in order to convert the residual kinetic energy leaving the runner into pressure and thus increase the specific energy transfer to the runner. The performances of low head bulb turbines are highly influenced by ... Read more about "Analysis of head losses in a bulb turbine draft tube by means of unsteady numerical simulations"
