Direct laser cooling of molecules

Cooling molecules with lasers is harder than cooling individual atoms with lasers. The very process of laser cooling, in which atoms are buffeted by thousands of photons, was thought by many to be impossible for molecules since photons, instead of slowing and cooling the molecules, could actually excite internal motions such as rotations and vibrations. Consequently, to get cold molecules one method is to first cool atoms and then combine them into molecules.

10 Burning Questions with Joachim Gräßer, Developer of Discovery | WinSource

Developer Appreciation Month marches on here at WinSource and today we had a chat with Joachim Gräßer, the developer of Discovery for Windows Phone. If you’ve played around with Discovery or even recognize the screenshots above, the game takes heavy cues from Minecraft but offers a unique take on building and survival. We sat down with Joachim and had a good chat about the future of the game.

Tutorial series: learning how to write a 3D soft engine from scratch in C#, TypeScript or JavaScript – David Rousset – sharing about HTML5, Windows 8 & Gaming – Site Home – MSDN Blogs

I’d to like to share with you how I’ve learned to build what’s known as a “3D soft engine” through a series of tutorials. “Software engine” means that we will use only the CPU to build a 3D engine in an old school way remember Doom on your 80386 ?. I’ll share with you the C#, TypeScript and JavaScript versions of the code. In this list, you should then find your favorite language or at least something near your favorite one. The idea is to help you transposing the following samples & concepts on your favorite platform. You’ll find the Visual Studio 2012 C#/TS/JS solutions to download at the end also.
