  • 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.


    First WIMP search results from the XENONnT experiment

    The XENON collaboration presented new results from XENONnT. Thanks to the five times lower background, XENONnT set new limits on interaction of WIMPs with ordinary matter.

  • 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!

  • Quantum sensors boosted by high-temperature superconductors

    Using high-temperature superconducting nanowires, single-photon detectors can now be operated at elevated temperatures, making them more useful for a wide range of applications.

  • SNF Consolidator Grant for Titus Neupert

    Congratulations to Titus Neupert for getting an SNF Consolidator Grant for Interacting Topological Quantum Chemistry

  • Higgs-Top connection

    Theory meets Experiment: The Top-Higgs connection

    Theoretical particle physicists from the group Grazzini have completed a new precision calculation for the production of the Higgs boson in association with a top-antitop quark pair at hadron colliders

  • Xenoscope


    Assembly of the DARWIN demonstrator Xenoscope in the assembly hall of the physics department
