PSI has around 2,100 employees, including 800 researchers. In addition, guest researchers and visitors are regularly on site. Our infographic shows the people at PSI.
The art of engineering means, first of all, the skill required to design and manufacture devices that enable top technical performance. This gallery shows, in five pictures, that this term can also be understood differently if the devices are regarded as works of art with their very own aesthetic, apart from their actual function.
In view of the coronavirus pandemic, the Paul Scherrer Institute changed to the extraordinary situation in spring 2020. By then, only a maximum of 20 percent of all PSI employees work at PSI. Five pictures show how research and operations at PSI nevertheless continued.
For the construction of the SwissFEL facility in 2013, around five hectares of forest were cleared and transformed into a new habitat for flora and fauna. Biologists and forest engineers have now assessed the results of the renaturization project and are excited about the progress to date.
To investigate Arctic water, ice, and air, 40 scientists cruised to the North Pole on the icebreaker Oden in the summer of 2018. Two atmospheric researchers from PSI were on board.
