  • A fast light detector made of two-dimensional materials
    Two research groups at ETH Zurich have joined forces to develop a novel light detector. It consists of two-dimensional layers of different materials that are coupled to a silicon optical waveguide. In the future, this...


  • Glass from a 3D printer
    ETH researchers used a 3D printing process to produce complex and highly porous glass objects. The basis for this is a special resin that can be cured with UV light. Producing glass objects using 3...
  • Monitoring the corrosion of bioresorbable magnesium
    ETH researchers have recently been able to monitor the corrosion of bioresorbable magnesium alloys at the nanoscale over a time scale of a few seconds to many hours. This is an important step towards accurately predicting ...
  • A battery with a twist
    Markus Niederberger's team of researchers at ETH has used stretchable materials to develop a battery that can be bent, stretched and twisted. For applications in bendable electronic devices, this is precisely the kind of batter...
  • Measuring ethanol's deadly twin
    ETH researchers have developed an inexpensive, handheld measuring device that can distinguish between methanol and potable alcohol. It offers a simple, quick method of detecting adulterated or contamina...
  • Resistance can spread even without the use of antibiotics
    Antibiotic resistance does not spread only where and when antibiotics are used in large quantities, ETH researchers conclude from laboratory experiments. Reducing antibiotic use alone is therefore not sufficient to curtail...
  • Revolutionising the CRISPR method
    Researchers at ETH Zurich have refined the famous CRISPR-Cas method. Now, for the very first time, it is possible to modify dozens, if not hundreds, of genes in a cell simultaneously. Everyone's talk...
  • A catalyst for sustainable methanol
    The global economy still relies on the fossil carbon sources of petroleum, natural gas and coal, not just to produce fuel, but also as a raw material used by the chemical industry to manufacture plastic...
  • Rössler Prize for work on bright nanoparticles
    A brilliant blue, a luminous green, a deep red - the range of colours Maksym Kovalenko presents in an array of test tubes in his lab is fascinating. But what is fascinating about the colours isn't just that they shine so brightly, but al...
  • Carbon-neutral fuel made from sunlight and air
    Researchers from ETH Zurich have developed a novel technology that produces liquid hydrocarbon fuels exclusively from sunlight and air. For the first time worldwide they demonstrate the entire thermochemical process c...
  • Water that never freezes
    Can water reach minus 263 degrees Celsius without turning into ice? Yes it can, say researchers from ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, if it is confined in nanometre-scale lipid channels. Making ice cubes is a simple ...




  • Biocompatible ink for 3D printing using living bacteria
    There will soon be nothing that cannot be produced with 3D printing. However, the materials used for this process are still "dead matter" such as plastics or metals. A group of ETH researchers led by Professor André Studart,...
  • Capture cell properties on a small scale in detail and individually
    All life processes in humans, animals and plants depend on cellular activity. The human body alone contains more than 210 cell types with specific properties and functions that influence development and health. A detailed understand...
  • New cell scale with high resolution
    From earthworms and sunflowers to human beings, we are all made up of cells, so it's no surprise that researchers are hard at work investigating these building blocks of life. They have already discovered many of their secrets, but ...
  • Low-cost battery from waste graphite
    Lithium ion batteries are flammable and the price of the raw material is rising. Are there alternatives? Yes: Empa and ETH Zürich researchers have discovered promising approaches as to how we might produce batteries out of waste graphite and ...
  • Rapid imaging of granular matter
    Granular systems such as gravel or powders can be found everywhere, but studying them is not easy. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now developed a method by which pictures of the inside of granular ...
