Applied to sound, then to image, digitalization has made it possible to shape and transform the objects to which it is applied. Today, the XCAN laser prototype paves the way to new possibilities by proposing the first digital laser, opening up incredible perspectives for shaping spatial and temporal distributions of light.
Connected actin networks generate forces within cells. Despite this fundamental role, their origin remained enigmatic. Alexis Gautreau and his team show that their formation involves the recruitment of a molecular machine, dynactin, which contains actin-like proteins.
X-Up, the Ecole Polytechnique incubator, is calling for applications for its 13th promotion, which is open until February 28. X-Up is looking for start-ups in the fields of energy, industry 4.0 and aerospace.
In 2020, École Polytechnique fulfilled its ambitious commitments to make sustainable development a strategic priority. It succeeded in making sustainable development a common purpose for its whole community.
École Polytechnique has adopted a master plan for the future development of its campus. Conducted within the framework of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris), it has been designed in cooperation with the Etablissement public d'aménagement Paris-Saclay and the Palaiseau Town Hall, both involved in the upgrading of the School’s facilities.
While Ecole Polytechnique's priority remains to protect the health of its entire community and to deliver outstanding teaching and research despite the ongoing health crisis, its 2021 priorities look beyond the pandemic.
On January 26th and 27th, 2000 students and more than 110 companies, schools and universities will meet online using the Seekube platform for the 28th edition of the X-Forum, a unique networking opportunity.
While it is obvious that plants adapt their growth to the wind, the mechanisms of wind perception still need to be elucidated. In their study, Jean-Marc Allain, Jean-Marie Frachisse and Bruno Moulia, highlight a receptor that transduces movement induced by the wind into an electrical signal at the cellular level.
A gas target called SMOG2 was installed at CERN this summer and will allow the LHCb detector to record new heavy ion collisions in order to better understand quarks and gluons plasma and the strong interaction. The Leprince Ringuet Laboratory, the precursor of this physics program, will be at the forefront of these studies.
Former student of the École Polytechnique, and an important figure in the Chemistry Department, François Mathey passed away last week. Duncan Carmichael, CNRS Researcher in the Molecular Chemistry Laboratory, looks back on his career, which followed an exemplary and inspiring path.
Mercedes Pelegrín García, a young researcher from the “Integrated Urban Mobility” Chair, has been awarded by two renowned international societies on Operational Research. These prizes are awarded for her PhD dissertation and her trajectory as a young researcher.
The inclusion of people with disabilities in co-creation processes is very rare. However, research by Estelle Peyrard and Cécile Chamaret suggests the relevance of HSPs for the development of a universal product that can be used by all and highlights the good practices to be respected.
Covid-19 times call for innovative and sustainable projects. One of the main missions of l’X is to work forward, training the leaders of tomorrow. And such example is of Christelle Rohaut (X2013), who joined the 2021 Forbes 30 Under 30 list (Consumer Technology category) with her start-up Codi, an economically and socially beneficial work-from-home alternative based in the US.
Specialist in high-energy nuclear physics, Leticia Cunqueiro has been awarded a Consolidator grant from the European Research Council (ERC). She will join Leprince Ringuet Laboratory to carry out in-depth research on quark and gluon plasmas, a state of matter that filled the universe in its earliest moments.
190 scientists from 25 countries have produced the first regional report on climate in the Mediterranean. Focusing on countries around the Mediterranean where the speed of climate change is faster than global trends, the report assesses the best scientific knowledge and associated risks in the region.
