Ultrafast processes beyond the human imagination occur in nature, but basic research has been able to measure and explore them only since the turn of the millennium. A book and an exhibition by the National Centre of Competence in Research Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology (NCCR MUST) now connect this to everyday life by inviting you on a journey into time.
ERC Starting Grant for Rachel Grange
Rachel Grange, Assistant Professor in Photonics at the Institute for Quantum Electronics, has been awarded one of the prestigious ERC Starting Grants.
At this year's first-year students event the Departments of Mathematics and Physics welcomed their new students of the degree programmes Mathematics, Physics and Computational Science and Engineering (RW/CSE).
International Conference on Cyclotrons and their Applications
Around 180 scientists working on the development and application of cyclotrons meet this week at ETH Zurich, to exchange ideas in a field that has a long-standing tradition at ETH and at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen.
Metal in chains
The electronic energy states allowed by quantum mechanics determine whether a solid is an insulator or whether it conducts electric current as a metal. Researchers at ETH have now theoretically predicted a novel material whose energy states exhibit a hitherto unknown peculiarity.
