Laura Baudis and Titus Neupert are on the list of Highly Cited Scientists 2020 - their papers rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in the Web of Science™. Congratulations!
Laura Baudis is a finalist for the Falling Walls Science Breakthroughs of the Year of the Berlin Science festival.
Alison Mitchell was awarded the HESS prize for numerous contributions to the H.E.S.S. experiment, on both technical and scientific aspects.
Deceased on August 16, 2020 at the age of 82
Günter Robert Scharf was full professor of theoretical physics at the University of Zurich from 1970 to 2006. In particular, he was a capacity in mathematical physics.
The LHCb collaboration has observed a type of four-quark particle never seen before. It is the first observation of a so called tetraquark with four heavy quarks of the same type, specifically two charm quarks and two charm antiquarks
The XENON collaboration that includes the group of Laura Baudis announced that data show a surprising excess of events
Carlos Abellan Beteta (Group Nico Serra) was awarded the LHCb Early Career Scientist Award for his leading contributions to the Upstream Tracker project.
Congratulations to Frank Schindler who is awarded the SPG thesis price 2020 for his work on "Higher-order topological insulators"

Wir trauern um unseren Kollegen, Freund und Mentor Peter Truöl, der am 22. März nach kurzer schwerer Krankheit im Alter von 80 Jahren verstorben ist.
Peter Truöl war von 1971-2006 Professor für Elementarteilchenphysik am Physik-Institut und initierte hier den Übergang der experimentellen Forschung von der Mittelenergie- zur Hochenergiephysik. Mit seiner Arbeitsgruppe beteiligte er sich an Experimenten am PSI, DESY und CERN aber auch in Berkeley, Los Alamos, Brookhaven.
The Annual report 2019 is online:
The LHCb collaboration presented in a CERN seminar the update of a full angular analysis of the B0→K*μμ decay. The tension previously seen between the LHCb results and the Standard Model predictions persists.
Members of group Chang have provided new insight into the intricate competing relationship between charge density waves and high-temperature superconductivity in the cuprates.
The workshop aims at showcasing the work of researchers at the University of Zürich that intend to use Machine Learning (ML) to enhance results of their research, while also providing a hands-on session as an example of how advanced ML tools are practically used.
The group of Marta Gibert published results on the transport properties of atomic-precise superlattices made from two alternating distinct nickelate layers, NdNiO3 and SmNiO3 in Nature Materials.
