About 30 years ago, Alexey Ekimov, Louis Brus & Alexander L. Efros started pioneering work on what has become the field of colloidal quantum dots. To celebrate this landmark event, a symposium will be held at ESPCI ParisTech on May 26-28, 2014.
An international team of academic and industrial researchers has invented a new way to manufacture elastomers that are as tough - and as resistant to fracture - as most elastomers, which are reinforced by additives. These results have just been published in Science.
The CNP Assurances Foundation is giving its support to the École Supérieure of Industrial Physics and Chemistry of the City of Paris (ESPCI ParisTech) in its ambitious research project directed by Mickael Tanter (photo), intended to improve the detection and management of heart contraction abnormalities. These dysfunctions affect one million individuals in France and are responsible for numerous deaths.
