(German only) Letzte Woche fand die Studienwoche 2017 an der ETH Zürich statt. Auch das Departement Materialwissenschaft betreute 12 Gymnasiastinnen und 2 Gymnasiasten während einer Woche mit spannenden Projekten wie Skateboardbau, 3D-Druck, Kunststoff-Fäden aus Fasern und im Spritzgussverfahren zu PET-Flaschen etc.
Researchers led by Lucio Isa (Interfaces, Soft Matter and Assembly), have developed microparticles with a rough, raspberry-like surface that stabilise emulsions following a new principle.

Dennis Meier Receives Gustav-Hertz-Preis 2017
Multiferroics couple magnetic and electric properties in unique ways. By directing his research at ETH Zurich on the domain walls that separate regions with a different orientation of magnetic and electric order in multiferroics, Dennis Meier discovered a realm of novel magneto-electronic functionalities. For this discovery, he received the Gustav-Hertz Prize of the German Physical Society.

Nicola Spaldin, Materials Theory, receives L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award for her revolutionary research in the field of materials science. The awards aim to recognise and support outstanding female researchers from all around the world. Nicola Spaldin has received this prestigious award for the Europe region. The British scientist's research lays the theoretical foundations for the understanding and development of so-called multiferroic materials, which have the unique property of being simultaneously magnetic and electric.
