(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.
Three-dimensional Magnetization Structures Revealed with X-Ray Vector Nanotomography
Researchers from Mesoscopic Systems (Prof. Laura Heyderman), from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), and from the University of Glasgow have for the first time made visible the directions of the magnetisation inside a micrometre-sized magnet in 3D down to details ten thousand times smaller than a millimetre (100 nanometres).

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.
