  • 2d topological crystalline superconductors can be built atom by atom.

    Two dimensional topological crystalline superconductivity has been predicted and experimentally observed in two-dimensional Shiba lattices: these research results are now published in Nature Physics.

  • Prof. Dr. Franz Waldner, 13. Februar 1928 - 27. Juni 2023

  • Publication of first observation of collider neutrinos by SND@LHC

    The observation paves the way for exploring new physics scenarios. Martina Ferrillo, a PhD student in the group of Nico Serra is one of the main proponents of the analysis - congratulations to her for this impressive result!

  • Congratulations to Marino Missiroli

    who has been elected as Trigger Coordinator of the CMS experiment

  • Nico Serra - Sinergia project approved

    The Sinergia project, co-led by Prof. Nico Serra, aims to explore synergies in data analysis by combining expertise from particle physics, healthcare, and mathematics. Working alongside Prof. Milo Puhan (Epidemiology, UZH), Prof. Alessio Figalli (Mathematics, ETHZ), and Prof. Andrea Burden (Pharmacology ETHZ), the team focuses on causal machine learning applied to high-dimensional problems. The primary objective is to address multimorbidity by leveraging advanced data analysis techniques from these diverse disciplines, ultimately fostering innovative solutions in healthcare.

  • Congratulations to Adinda de Wit

    for winning the highly prestigious Guido Altarelli award "for outstanding achievements in understanding the nature of the Higgs boson, including precision studies of the quark couplings and decay channels"

  • Graphene with a twist: Kekulé spiral

    Researchers at Princeton University have experimentally observed the Kekulé spiral state in graphene as predicted by a collaboration of researchers from Zurich (group Neupert), Oxford and Berkeley.

  • The Standard Model effective field theory at work

    A team of UZH physicists from three different generations, Daniel Wyler, Gino Isidori, and Felix Wilsch, have published a comprehensive review of the Standard Model of particle physics viewed as an Effective Field Theory.

  • Erste Ergebnisse der WIMP-Suche mit XENONnT

    Die XENON-Kollaboration präsentierte neue Ergebnisse von XENONnT. Dank fünffach niedrigerem Untergrund hat XENONnT neue Grenzen für die Wechselwirkung von WIMPs mit gewöhnlicher Materie gesetzt.

  • First observation of collider neutrinos by FASER and SND@LHC

    The two experiments report the first observation of neutrinos at the LHC which paves the way for exploring new physics scenarios. The group of Nico Serra crucially contributed to the detector and the analysis - congratulation!
