Synchrotron light can be used in follow-up after a heart transplant to determine whether the body may be rejecting the new organ.
The technology transfer centre ANAXAM has been facilitating access to the material analytics at PSI.
With muons, PSI researchers can examine objects non-destructively. This helps in archaeology and battery development.
Kirsten Moselund heads the new Laboratory for Nano and Quantum Technologies. In this interview she discusses quantum research at PSI and how nanophotonics can assist with this.
PSI researchers are the first to observe a specific behaviour of magnetic ice.
A new simulation of the most dangerous radioactive debris from the Fukushima nuclear power plant will help with clean-up efforts.
In pursuit of particularly stable quantum bits, researchers have closely examined the electron distribution in two semiconductors.
The European Research Council approves PSI projects for the development of a quantum computer and brain research worth about 5 million euros.
Boosted with superconductivity: Semiconductor technology can get a new twist by exploiting quantum effects in superconductors.
A team at the Swiss Light Source SLS have set a new record using an imaging method called tomoscopy.
Why the shell of a marine animal is soft in water but hard in air.
Niels Schröter receives an award from the Swiss Physical Society (SPG).
As an international team of researchers discovered, the old Italian masters Stradivari and Guarneri relied on unexpected chemical additives in making violins.
Together with international colleagues, PSI researchers have now been able to make correlated metals more readily usable for applications in superconductivity, data processing, and quantum computers.
At PSI, researchers come across exotic phenomena such as frustrated magnets and nano-vortices, which may one day enable better data storage.
Catalysts used in industry change their material structure over the years. Using a new method, PSI researchers have now studied this on the nanoscale.
A new PSI method allows quantum-physical research on materials with the aid of X-ray lasers.
At high pressure, liquid water and water vapour merge together – the phase boundary disappears. Researchers have now discovered a similar behaviour in a quantum magnet.
