The FCC provides science for almost a century

In spring 2020 the European particle physics community will decide on a new European Strategy highlighting the strategic long-term goals in this important field of fundamental research. In December 2018 Swiss scientists – organized by the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics / CHIPP – have formulated their input to the new European Strategy. Günther Dissertori – professor at ETH Zurich, member of the CHIPP Executive Board and incoming Scientific Delegate of Switzerland in the CERN Council – explains the main points of the Swiss strategic input.

PiA - Physics in Advent: still 24 experiments until Christmas

PiA offers 24 entertaining physics experiments to do yourself again this year. Due to the great interest from abroad, physics will be available in English during Advent, just like last year.

Further reducing the error

Laetitia Laub was born and raised near Lausanne. She studied mathematics and physics at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). Since August 2017, the 24-year-old junior scientist is writing her doctoral thesis in theoretical physics at the University of Bern. In her thesis she deals with the anomalous magnetic dipole moment of the muon and the reaction of this particle in the magnetic field. "Many people are currently working on this theoretical problem with the aim of further reducing the calculation error of the dipol moment. This is also because a better experimental value for the dipole moment will be probably found at Fermilab in the US and J-Parc experiment in Japan soon, " says Laetitia Laub.

Le Prix Nobel de Physique 2018 attribué à la physique des lasers

Le Prix Nobel de physique 2018 est revenu pour moitié à Arthur Ashkin (USA), ainsi qu'à Gérard Mourou (France) et Donna Strickland (Canada). Ils sont récompensés pour leurs travaux sur les lasers, à la base d'applications dans l'industrie et la médecine. Arthur Ashkin a mis au point la pince optique qui permet de manipuler des organismes extrêmement petits comme les cellules, les particules et les virus. Gérard Mourou et Donna Strickland ont inventé la technique d'amplification des lasers, appelé, qui génère des impulsions ultracourtes et de très haute puissance.

«My fear is that the tasks are underestimated severely by Open Data advocats»

On the national and the international level science is pushing towards Open Data. As noble as the principle is, the challenges for scientists are immense. Nicolas Thomas, space scientist from the University of Bern, will talk at the event «Open Data and Data Management – Issues and Challenges» on 29 October in Bern.
