Overview: Future Technologies
Quantum computers, more powerful electricity conductors or storage media, ultra-precision medical applications: they all require innovative processes and technologies. New materials are essential for their development. Scientists at the Paul Scherrer Institute are working to clarify the link between the internal structure and the observable properties of different materials with the help of PSI’s unique large research facilities.
PSI researchers explore innovative solutions for data processing and storage. They also design technologies that are more sustainable and powerful, or develop new methods that provide even deeper insights into micro and nano worlds.
Although their specialist research areas may be quite different, PSI scientists are bound by a common goal: laying the foundations for the cutting-edge technologies of the future. This not only brings material progress, but also strengthens Switzerland’s standing as an international business hub.
