“Hot” Electrons Move Faster Than Expected

“Hot” Electrons Move Faster Than Expected

For the first time, engineers and scientists at Caltech have been able to directly observe the ultrafast motion of electrons immediately after they are excited with a laser—and found that these electrons diffuse into their surroundings much faster and farther than...
A 100-year-old physics problem has been solved at EPFL

A 100-year-old physics problem has been solved at EPFL

At EPFL, researchers challenge a fundamental law and discover that more electromagnetic energy can be stored in wave-guiding systems than previously thought. The discovery has implications in telecommunications. Working around the fundamental law, they conceived...
The largest virtual Universe ever simulated.

The largest virtual Universe ever simulated.

Over a period of three years, a group of astrophysicists from the University of Zurich has developed and optimised a revolutionary code to describe with unprecedented accuracy the dynamics of dark matter and the formation of large-scale structures in the Universe. As...

Box Bot, co-founded by alum, wins Pear challenge

Mark Godwin, while pursuing his Ph.D. in transportation controls at UC Berkeley, worked with drones, self-driving cars and logistics. Now, he is a co-founder and CTO of Box Bot, which just won Pear Ventures’ 2016-17 UC Berkeley Startup Challenge, which awards $250,000...
World’s thinnest hologram paves path to new 3D world

World’s thinnest hologram paves path to new 3D world

Interactive 3D holograms are a staple of science fiction – from Star Wars to Avatar­­ – but the challenge for scientists trying to turn them into reality is developing holograms that are thin enough to work with modern electronics. Now a pioneering team led by RMIT...
Fabrication technology in the fourth dimension

Fabrication technology in the fourth dimension

3D printers have become a standard fixture in many research laboratories – and now a select number of researchers are already looking to add yet another dimension to the technology: time. Kristina Shea, head of the Engineering Design and Computing Lab at ETH...
