Members of the Physics Department presented 40 posters with current research directions and ideas for future experiments and lead through the mechanical workshop and the research laboratories.
The prize was awarded to R. Weiss, B. Barish and K. Thorne for their contributions to the LIGO detector, which directly detected gravitational waves for the first time in 2015. The group of Philippe Jetzer of UZH is involved in research with gravitational waves.
Titus Neupert, assistant professor of theoretical solid-state physics at the Institute of Physics at the University of Zurich, receives an ERC (European Research Council) grant for the research of new quantum materials.
A collaboration of researchers from Beijing, Princeton, and the University of Zurich demonstrated how Weyl fermion excitations can be annihilated in a crystal via the application of a strong magnetic field.
Our institute was present at Scientifica 2017 with a show, two short lectures and a booth.
Recently the UZH research group of Johan Chang uncovered - using angle-resolved photoemission electron spectroscopy - the nature of the Mott phase in Ca2RuO4 that has puzzled for decades.
The upgraded CMS barrel pixel detector system was built in part at the Physik Institut by the CMS group during the past 5 years. Beginning of March 2017 it was inserted into the CMS detector at CERN.
New measurements by the LHCb experiment show an unexpected deviation from predictions by the Standard Model of particle physics.
In an interview with GeoKompakt UZH Professor Laura Baudis talks about Dark Matter and Dark Energies
Zurich Phenomenology Workshop is a forum for particle physics researchers to discuss the latest developments in phenomenology. It took place in Zurich January 9-11 2017.
