Time-of-flight imaging and LIDAR systems enable 3D scene acquisition at long range using active illumination. This is useful for autonomous driving, robotic vision, human-computer interaction and many other applications. The technological requirements on these imaging systems are extreme: individual photon events need to be recorded and time-stamped at a picosecond timescale, which is facilitated by ...

In recent years, electricity-driven hydrogen production by electrochemical splitting of water has received particular attention because of its potential applicability in decentralized energy storage concepts.(1) Most of the efforts have been focused on the electrochemical reaction occurring at the anode side, the oxygen evolution reaction (OER), since it is source of large overpotentials.(2) Advances in ...

What do active ceramics and soft structures have in common? Two seemingly distinct systems serve to illustrate the power of structural transformations, and the challenges involved in modeling those across scales. Ferroelectric ceramics are key to most sensor and actuator technologies, owing to their electro-mechanical coupling: they deform under applied electric fields, and they produce ...

Description et objectifs Les enjeux d’une soutenance de thèse ou d’une conférence importante peuvent être élevés. La pression augmentant, les moyens à portée de main pour réussir diminuent proportionnellement. Un regard hostile, une question inattendue, une remarque ou une critique peuvent déstabiliser, voire vous priver entièrement des moyens d’agir d’une manière constructive. Cette formation apporte ...
