A new paper
A new paper compares the respective performance of single pixel infrared detectors and high speed IR cameras. As high speed IR cameras are increasingly used, such a comparison is timely.

The paper, co-authored with G. G. Goviazin and A. Shirizly is available (temporarily) on https://rdcu.be/cWtgh

Today, we welcomed a joint delegation from AFRL with Dr. M. Gonzales and Dr. Major Swanson, ONR and IMOD to present our collaborative activities aimed at characterizing the impact behavior of a new USAF high strength steel. This is part of our THEOREM project together with our colleagues of U. Carlos 3 of Madrid. The visit comprised a brief description of the main results  so far and a lab. visit.

Dr. K. Shemtov-Yona presented our joint research (with A. Shavit) on the issue of biocompatibility of titanium dental implants at PER-IADR Conference in Marseille. The essence of the research consists in identifying the mechano-chemical signature of peri-implantitis by an array of high resolution analysis techniques of retrieved implants.

Prof. Pierre Berest R.I.P.
It is with great sadness that I heard of the passing away of my former colleague, Prof. Pierre Berest, who was the Director of the Laboratoire de Mecanique des Solides (Ecole Polytechnique) during the years I spent there. Pierre was an accomplished scientist and a true gentleman as well as a very kind person. He will be missed!
