Research for semiconductor electronics

PSI researchers, together with researchers from Cornell University in New York State, have identified a composite material that could integrate quantum devices into semiconductor technology, making electronic components significantly more powerful. Among the most important challenges currently facing semiconductor electronics are improvements that would increase data transmission bandwidth, energy efficiency and information security. The incorporation of quantum effects could provide a new breakthrough and could be trend-setting for the semiconductur-industry.

Effective combination cancer treatment

Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI have tested various methods to check how effective they are in combatting certain types of cancer. They found a combination of two preparations to be much more effective than treatment with just one of the two active substances. This is particularly important for the treatment of modular thyroid carcinomas. If the results obtained so far are confirmed in future studies, this therapy could be available to the general public in a few years.

SIF 2021 will take place in the Congress Center in Basel on 18th November 2021 (image source: Swiss Innovation Forum).

PSI and ANAXAM at the this year's Swiss Innovation Forum!

A fundamental basis for success in these special times is innovation, which is largely driven by exchange and inspiration. The Swiss Innovation Forum (SIF) 2021 brings both together in one place. That is why we are supporting this year's edition of the SIF as a partner.

Meet innovative minds from different industries at the Congress Center Basel on 18th November 2021 , exchange ideas and create new visions. Future-oriented experts will furthermore take you on a journey full of ideas. It will be rounded off by the FutureExpo, which invites you to discover and try things out, and the 33rd Swiss Technology Award ceremony, at which the best tech innovations of the year are honoured.

PSI will be there - visit us at our booth and find out more about how the technology transfer centre ANAXAM uses state-of-the-art material analysis to support both industry and SMEs in optimising production methods and processes, thus creating the basis for innovations.

Two proteins are connected to each other at a fixed distance and angle by means of a rigid protein spiral.

Protein Distancing

Using a protein fusion approach that uses a modular linker PSI Researchers can now connect two unrelated proteins at a defined distance and orientation to each other. This technology could allow for applications e.g. in  vaccine development or could facilitate the crystallization of proteins for drug development. Furthermore, the linker holds potential as a component in protein-based nanomaterials. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in learning more about this exiting technology.
