LMN News and Highlights
3D magnetic structures
Three-dimensional magnetic nanostructures developed at LMN in collaboration with NUM-LMX and University of Glasgow have been featured on the cover of Materials Today.
Comenius Medal for eCourse «Ethics in Research»
Dr. Helmut Schift, head of polymer nanotechnology group of LMN and consultant for research integrity at PSI, received the Comenius medal on 27 June 2019 in Berlin. The Comenius-EduMedia-Award is granted for outstanding examples of digital educational media.
First demonstration of a Germanium laser
Scientist at the Paul Scherrer Institut and ETH Zürich, with colleagues from CEA Grenoble, have demonstrated and characterized a technology that, for the first time, yields lasing from strained elemental Germanium. This achievement underlines PSI’s leading role in the development of Silicon-compatible laser light sources.
Soichiro Tsujino is one of the APL top reviewers of 2018
The editors of Applied Physics Letters (APL) named Dr. Soichiro Tsujino, head of the XFEL nanoengineering group of LMN, as one of the 16 ALP top reviewers in 2018.
Supramolecular architectures of molecularly thin yet robust free-standing layers
In a collaboration within the network of the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the formation of free-standing molecular monolayers using self-assembly processes has been demonstrated. The results of the study have been published in the February 2019 issue of Science Advances.
Dr Yasin Ekinci elected as Fellow of SPIE
Dr. Yasin Ekinci, Head of the Advanced Lithography and Metrology Group and ad interim Head of the Laboratory for Micro and Nanotechnology, has been elected to the grade of Fellow of The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE).
Data storage using individual molecules
The research group of Prof. T.A. Jung at the University of Basel has reported on a new method that allows the physical state of just a few atoms or molecules within a network to be controlled.
2018 Innovation Award on Synchrotron Radiation
The Innovation Award on Synchrotron Radiation 2018 went to Dr. Christian David, also from the Paul Scherrer Institute, and to Prof. Alexei Erko, who recently moved from the HZB to the Institute for Applied Photonics (IAP) in Berlin-Adlershof.
Demonstration of femtosecond X-ray pump X-ray probe diffraction on protein crystals
Our experiments, published in the September issue of Structural Dynamics, demonstrate the feasibility of time-resolved pump-multiprobe X-ray diffraction experiments on protein crystals using a split-and-delay setup which was temporarily installed at the LCLS X-ray Free Electron Laser.
