Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz, Physics Nobel prize laureates 2019

The two researchers from the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Geneva share this extraordinary distinction with James Peebles, Professor Emeritus at Princeton University in the United States. The Nobel Prize was awarded to the Swiss scientists for the discovery in 1995 of the first planet outside our solar system.

Callum Wilkinson prepares the DUNE experiment at the University of Bern

In 2025, the 'Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment' (DUNE) will be launched in the north of the USA, with which physicists want to learn more about neutrino - a still mysterious elementary particle. An important component of the DUNE experiment is currently being prepared by scientists from the University of Bern.

CHIPP Prize 2019 goes to PSI researcher Dr. Michał Rawlik

Michał Rawlik, scientist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) is awarded the CHIPP Prize 2019. The 29-year-old researcher receives the award for his doctoral thesis on the electric dipole moment of the neutron. The experiment he co-developed could one day help answer the question of why there is much more matter in the universe than antimatter.

The XENON1T experiment in the Italian Gran Sasso Laboratory has measured the most protracted radioactive decay ever

Radioactive waste from nuclear power plants can take a long time to decay. For plutonium-239 the half-life - that is the time until half of the atoms of a sample have decayed - is no less than 24,000 years. But this is nothing compared to the half-life of the noble gas xenon-124, as an international research team with collaborators from the University of Zurich has now shown.

Matteo Fadel - Paradoxical entanglements

A labyrinth of mirrors, a shiny pot, countless cables and digital displays. Visiting Matteo Fadel at his workplace at the University of Basel, he first takes us to the laboratory where he tracks strange quantum phenomena. Somewhere in the midst of all this apparatus, several hundred atoms are trapped and brought into a state that still causes physicists a lot of headaches today.
