Swiss Nanoscience Institute

The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) is a Center of Excellence in Nanoscale Sciences and Nanotechnologie. It was founded in 2006 by the University of Basel and the Swiss Canton Aargau and consists of a network of different research institutions in Northwestern Switzerland. At the SNI, interdisciplinary teams work on basic research topics in different areas of nanoscale sciences. Applied research projects build bridges between basic research and applications in industry and are combined in the Nano-Argovia Program of the SNI. Under the umbrella of the SNI, the University of Basel offers a Bachelor and Master Study Program and initiated a PhD Program in Nanosciences. Knowledge and technology transfer into industry as well as active information of the public are important pillars of the SNI activities.

A great start – the first Annual Event of the SNI



From September 11th to 12th, the first Annual Event of the Swiss Nanoscience Institute was held at Lenzerheide. During seventeen scientific presentations and the postersession, the 75 participants got a good insight into the diverse and highly topical research at the SNI. Furthermore, the meeting offered an excellent occasion to exchange ideas and thoughts with colleagues from various disciplines and different SNI network partners.

Manipulation of the nuclear spin ensemble in a quantum dot with chirped magnetic resonance pulses



The nuclear spins in nanostructured semiconductors play a central role in quantum applications1, 2, 3, 4. The nuclear spins represent a useful resource for generating local magnetic5 fields but nuclear spin noise represents a major source of dephasing for spin qubits2, 3. Controlling the nuclear spins   more...
