Feb 15, 2022 Welcome to Michiel

Welcome to Michiel to our Team and all the best to your masterproject on TOPAS THZ detectors.

Jan 18, 2022 Mickael awarded an ERC Starting Grant

Dr. Mickael L. Perrin wants to build tiny power plants from graphene nanoribbons that generate electricity from heat. His ambitious project won him one of the prestigious ERC Starting Grants from the EU and one of the 32 Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). He will take up an assistant professorship at ETH Zurich – and continue his research at Empa. Press release.

Dec 14, 2021 Diagnosis during flight

Together with teams from England and Germany, Empa researchers around Erwin Hack developed a monitoring system for aircraft components. In the future, minor damage could be detected and monitored during flight without the aircraft having to go into the hangar for maintenance. This will reduce operating costs and increase safety at the same time. More info.
