The latest episode of the Discovery programme on the BBC World Service is dedicated to quantum computation. BBC journalist Roland Pease met some of the experts, including ETH physicist Jonathan Home, and explored the technology behind the "next information revolution".
Persistent and curious
As Professor of Particle Physics, Felicitas Pauss played a key role in the discovery of the Higgs boson. Tomorrow, she will be honoured with the Richard Ernst Medal.
One laser is enough
Gases in the environment can be spectroscopically probed fast and precisely using so-called dual frequency combs. Researchers at ETH have now developed a method by which such frequency combs can be created much more simply and cheaply than before.
Pauli Lectures take a look under the microscope
Using a trick with the optical resolution limit, Stefan W. Hell managed to break through the diffraction barrier in light microscopy, making it possible to obtain high-resolution images of the innermost workings of life. The chemistry Nobel laureate will now deliver this year’s Pauli Lectures at ETH Zurich.
"The Exoplanet and the search for life"
ETH astrophysicist Kevin Schawinski speaks on Swiss Radio SRF about exoplanets and the search for biology outside our solar system.
