A new quantum component made from graphene

For the first time, ETH Zurich researchers have been able to make a superconducting component from graphene that is quantum coherent and sensitive to magnetic fields

04-Nov-2022

Less than 20 years ago, Konstantin Novoselov and Andre Geim first created two-dimensional crystals consisting of just one layer of carbon atoms. Known as graphene, this material has had quite a career since then. Due to its exceptional strength, graphene is used today to reinforce products such ...

Fighting tumours with magnetic bacteria

Researchers at ETH Zurich are planning to use magnetic bacteria to fight cancerous tumours

01-Nov-2022

Scientists around the world are researching how anti-cancer drugs can most efficiently reach the tumours they target. One possibility is to use modified bacteria as “ferries” to carry the drugs through the bloodstream to the tumours. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now succeeded in controlling ...

Monitoring gene activities in living cells

Cell Biopsy instead of cell lysis

19-Aug-2022

Researchers from ETH Zurich and EPFL are expanding the emerging field of single-​cell analysis with a ground-​breaking method: Live-​seq makes it possible to measure the activity of thousands of genes in a single cell without having to isolate and destroy it. Modern biology is increasingly ...

Imaging the brain with ultrasound waves

28-Jul-2022

Both ultrasound for medical imaging and seismology for imaging the Earth's interior measure the propagation of waves through matter. For example, when seismic waves encounter material differences in the Earth's interior, such as between different rock formations, they are reflected and refracted ...

Attosecond measurement on electrons in water clusters

22-Jul-2022

Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a method that enables time-​resolved measurements of electron motion in water clusters lasting only a few attoseconds. The technique can be used for more detailed studies of water as well as faster electronics. Virtually all vital chemical processes take ...

Tapping the ocean as a source of natural products

New species and new molecules discovered

24-Jun-2022

Using DNA data, ETH researchers have examined seawater to find not only new species of bacteria, but also previously unknown natural products that may one day prove beneficial. The oceans are teeming with countless forms of life, from the world’s largest creature – the blue whale– to miniscule ...

New imaging method makes tiny robots visible in the body

Important breakthrough in efficiently merging microrobotics and imaging

16-May-2022

Microrobots have the potential to revolutionize medicine. Researchers at the Max Planck ETH Centre for Learning Systems have now developed an imaging technique that for the first time recognises cell-​sized microrobots individually and at high resolution in a living organism. How can a blood clot ...

Light amplification accelerates chemical reactions in aerosols

Temporal sequence of photochemical reaction in individual aerosol particles observed with high resolution

21-Apr-2022

Aerosols in the atmosphere react to incident sunlight. This light is amplified in the interior of the aerosol droplets and particles, accelerating reactions. ETH researchers have now been able to demonstrate and quantify this effect and recommend factoring it into future climate models. Liquid ...

A look into the magnetic future

Researchers at PSI and ETH Zurich have observed for the first time how tiny magnets in a special layout align themselves solely as a result of temperature changes

06-Apr-2022

This view into processes that take place within so-​called artificial spin ice could play an important role in the development of novel high-​performance computers. When water freezes to form ice, the water molecules, with their hydrogen and oxygen atoms, arrange themselves in a complex ...

New drug candidates identified in bacteria

Bacteria show great promise as a source of active ingredients

17-Feb-2022

Using computer-​based genome analysis, researchers at ETH Zurich have now discovered a new class of natural products that might one day serve as antibiotics. Animals, plants, fungi and bacteria – each and every organism carries a whole armoury of chemical compounds that enable it to interact with ...
