Two years ago, ETH physicist Tilman Esslinger experimentally realised a theoretical model of a new material with unusual properties in his laboratory. Today, the father of the model received the Nobel Prize.
Measuring forces with oscillations
Researchers at ETH Zurich have discovered a peculiar feature in oscillations similar to that of a child‘s swing. As a result, they have succeeded in outlining a novel principle for small, high-resolution sensors, and have submitted a patent application for it.
Ultrafast processes in the blink of an eye
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).
