An international team including members of the group Neupert has for the first time observed the electronic magneto-chiral anisotropy (eMChA) in a structurally achiral crystal, CsV3Sb5.
Ernst Brun studied physics at the University of Zurich and received his doctorate in 1954 under Professor H.H. Staub with a thesis on magnetic nuclear moments using nuclear magnetic resonance. He developed new experimental methods - dynamic nuclear polarization - to amplify nuclear magnetic resonance signals and thus was able to detect very weak signals. After a research stay in the USA, he was appointed associate professor of experimental physics at the University of Zurich in 1958. In 1963 he was promoted to full professor.

XENONnT, the latest detector of the XENON Dark Matter program, shows an unprecedentedly low background which facilitates searches for new, very rare phenomena with high sensitivity.
The power of positive role models: A successful first edition of the “Women in Physics Career Symposium” connected women in physics at various career stages to help retain early career researchers in physics. The journey to gender equality in physics in Switzerland will continue next year.
The group Neupert published a paper in Nature Communications presenting a strategy for verifying that electric circuits can emulate the physics of negatively curved spaces and demonstrate that electric circuits, designed by the electronics workshop, can do so efficiently.
Scientists from the leading dark matter experiments came together beginning of July at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, joining forces to design and build a future dark matter detector within the XLZD consortium.
