  • The Standard Model effective field theory at work

    A team of UZH physicists from three different generations, Daniel Wyler, Gino Isidori, and Felix Wilsch, have published a comprehensive review of the Standard Model of particle physics viewed as an Effective Field Theory.

  • 2d topological crystalline superconductors can be built atom by atom.

    Two dimensional topological crystalline superconductivity has been predicted and experimentally observed in two-dimensional Shiba lattices: these research results are now published in Nature Physics.

  • Prof. Dr. Franz Waldner, 13 February 1928 - 27 June 2023

  • Publication of first observation of collider neutrinos by SND@LHC

    The observation paves the way for exploring new physics scenarios. Martina Ferrillo, a PhD student in the group of Prof. Nico Serra is one of the main proponents of the analysis - congratulations to her for this impressive result!

  • Congratulations to Marino Missiroli

    who has been elected as Trigger Coordinator of the CMS experiment

  • Nico Serra - Sinergia project approved

    The Sinergia project, co-led by Prof. Nico Serra, aims to explore synergies in data analysis by combining expertise from particle physics, healthcare, and mathematics. Working alongside Prof. Milo Puhan (Epidemiology, UZH), Prof. Alessio Figalli (Mathematics, ETHZ), and Prof. Andrea Burden (Pharmacology ETHZ), the team focuses on causal machine learning applied to high-dimensional problems. The primary objective is to address multimorbidity by leveraging advanced data analysis techniques from these diverse disciplines, ultimately fostering innovative solutions in healthcare.

  • Congratulations to Adinda de Wit

    for winning the highly prestigious Guido Altarelli award "for outstanding achievements in understanding the nature of the Higgs boson, including precision studies of the quark couplings and decay channels"

  • Graphene with a twist: Kekulé spiral

    Researchers at Princeton University have experimentally observed the Kekulé spiral state in graphene as predicted by a collaboration of researchers from Zurich (group Neupert), Oxford and Berkeley.

  • A quantum computer requires exponentially fewer parameters to store a time-evolved quantum state

    The digital gate structure employed in quantum computations provides a solution to the challenge of coping with the exponentially increasing memory requirements for storing a quantum state during time evolution. These are now published in Physical Review Research.
