Einstein's Dissertation at UZH

Albert Einstein’s theories revolutionized physics and fundamentally changed our understanding of the world. In 1905, his annus mirabilis, or miracle year, Einstein published five groundbreaking papers. One of these papers was his doctoral thesis “Eine neue Bestimmung der Moleküldimensionen” (A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions), which he submitted to the University of Zurich.  It earned him his doctorate, conferred by UZH in 1906. His Zurich dissertation would become one of Einstein’s most cited research papers. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his groundbreaking discoveries.
