Scalable, Ultra-resistant Structural Colors Based on Network Metamaterials
A team that includes scientists from the Laboratory for Nanometallurgy is the first to use materials with a network-like structure to create a full spectrum of intense colours. The principle has long existed in nature: for example, in the colourful plumage of a particular species of bird in South America.
Swiss Free Electron Laser (SwissFEL)
Prof. Laura Heyderman, Chair of Mesoscopic Systems, would like to use the Swiss Free Electron Laser (SwissFEL) to study ultra-fast processes in magnets on the micrometer and nanometer scale and get to the bottom of phenomena that occur during phase transitions.
