Scientists from the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have demonstrated for the first time how electrons are transported from a superconductor through a quantum dot into a metal with normal conductivity. This transport process through a quantum dot
Microwave field imaging is becoming increasingly important, as microwaves play an essential role in modern communications technology and can also be used in medical diagnostics. Researchers from the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have now independently
The SNI has produced a new brochure for children and school students. The small brochure explains what nanoscale science is about. Examples show the diversity of research at the SNI and invite everybody to get further information.The brochure is available only in German.
On October 28, an event for teachers takes place at the University of Basel that covers natural science topics.
A fellowship for an experimental PhD thesis work is now available in the Poggio Lab at the University of
Basel, Switzerland (poggiolab.unibas.ch). Research in the Poggio Lab is concentrated on studies of smallscale
magnetism using various cutting edge methods i.e. cantilever magnetometry, magnetic resonance
Researchers at the University of Basel have succeeded in building protein gates for artificial nano-vesicles that become transparent only under specific conditions. The gate responds to certain pH values, triggering a reaction and releasing active agents at the desired location. This is demonstrated in a study published in the journal Nano Letters.
With Christian Bosshardt, i-net innovation networks Switzerland (the joint innovation support of the cantons in Northwestern Switzerland) could win an excellent expert as Strategic Head of the Technology Field Nano. Christian Bosshardt is Director of CSEM in Muttenz. He will strategically support i-net and provide his knowledge and contacts.
A PhD position is available at the Department of Physics at University of Basel in Switzerland on a project investigating hybrid
quantum systems with nanowire mechanical resonators and optical cavities.
