Polymers in Two Dimensions / 14.08.2014

The ultrathin material graphene is the current favourite of many materials scientists. Materials scientists in the group of Prof. Dieter Schlüter, Professor of Polymer Chemistry, have now managed to create a synthetic polymer that is almost as thin. This is the first time that a flat synthetic polymer has been produced and its structure analysed using X-ray crystallography. ETH News: Deutsch, English, Nature Chemistry

At the Frontiers of Magnetism / 09.05.2014

The smallest possible magnets are the size of a single atom. Now scientists have reached the limits of optimisation of the tiny particles: they have created single atom magnets that are as strong and stable as is physically possible for the class of atoms used. Prof. Pietro Gambardella, Professor of Magnetism and Interface Physics, is one of the leaders of the study published in the journal Science. ETH News: Deutsch, English, Science Journal

Spark Award 2014 / 12.03.2014

ETH Zurich’s Spark Award 2014 goes to Professor Jennifer Rupp, Professor for Electrochemical Materials, Sebastian Schweiger and Felix Messerschmitt. They have developed a powerful and energy-efficient data storage device for mobile electronic devices. ETH Zurich awarded the prize to its most innovative and economically promising innovation of the past year. They won the competition for the most promising patent application of the past year.
