  • Electronic chirality in an achiral Kagome superconductor

    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

    Ernst Brun, Professor Emeritus of Experimental Physics born on March 31, 1927, deceased on November 19, 2022 at the age of 95 years

    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.

    Connecting Women in Physics

    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.

  • Simulating Hyperbolic Space

    Simulating hyperbolic space on a circuit board

    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.

  • Dark Matter Collaboration
