Hundreds of global researchers, including University of Zurich, are planning the most sensitive dark matter detector ever built.
This new system used by the group of Marta Gibert allows to track the growth of complex oxide thin films with atomic precision in real time.
Getting Started with Machine Learning - a book by Titus Neupert et al. The book is aimed at students of all sciences and can be downloaded for free (from UZH) https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783658322670
The lower limit for the half-life of the neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) of 76Ge is 1.8 × 1026 years, according to the final result of the GERDA experiment at the LNGS underground laboratory in Italy.
Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is the key packaging material in two-dimensional (2D) materials field, though synthesis of high-quality h-BN has remained a major challenge. Cun at al. reported a new scheme to fabricate single layer h-BN
Cristina Botta was awarded for her outstanding contributions in developing and coordinating the physics trigger menu for the CMS Level-1 Phase-2 Trigger upgrade (more)
The Python code WannierBerri developed by Stepan Tsirkin breaks the records of speed in evaluation of anomalous transport in solids.
The DAMIC experiment has uncovered an interesting excess of events while searching for dark matter. The probability that the background produced the excess is less than one in a thousand.
The LHCb collaboration has just released new intriguing results. The latest measurements strengthen hints for a deviation with respect to the theoretical expectations.
Professor Thomas Gehrmann receives an ERC Advanced Grant to develop new methods for precision calculations in particle physics.
In their recent work members of the group Neupert extend the paradigm of topological insulators to areas which were previously thought to contain only trivial insulators.
For his PhD work on Neural Network Quantum States, Kenny Choo from the Condensed Matter Theory Group obtained the 2021 PhD Thesis Award from the Swiss Physical Society in the category Computational Physics.
For the first time, gravitational-wave astronomers of the LIGO collaboration - including Maria Haney und Shubhanshu Tiwari from the group of Philippe Jetzer - have confirmed the detection of a collision between a black hole and a neutron star.
Astroparticle physicist Laura Baudis searches for hidden matter
SCNAT portrays Laura Baudis in the series Women Scientists in Former Male Domains.
Theoretical particle physicists of the group of Massimiliano Grazzini have completed the first computation of strong-electroweak corrections to the Drell-Yan process.
Congratulations: Luca Rottoli (group Grazzini) and Shubhanshu Tiwari (group Jetzer) receive a SNF Ambizione grant for the next four years!
After more than two years of maintenance and upgrade during the LHC shutdown, the pixel detector in the center of the CMS detector was re-installed.
Researchers from the group Neupert propose the non-Hermitian analogue of three-dimensional topological insulators.
Congratulations to Florencia Canelli who started her job as CMS Physics Coordinator September 1st!
A collaboration between the groups of Profs. Chang and Janoschek and the PSI, has developed a novel strain cell that can be combined with high-resolution synchrotron diffraction techniques allowing to change the strain of a quantum material in-situ while directly observing the lattice symmetry.
New publication by the group of Fabian Natterer in Phys. Rev.
Black holes of ‘all shapes and sizes’ in new gravitational-wave catalog
Congratulations to Vera Hiu-Sze Wu, the winner of the DECTRIS Experimental Physics Prize! The Prize is given to an excellent Master's thesis in experimental physics at our institute.
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.
