Using industrial waste as insulation for buildings

15-Oct-2019

ETH spinoff FenX transforms industrial waste into a porous foam suitable for building insulation. Unlike other sustainable materials used for the purpose, this type of insulation is non-flammable and inexpensive to produce. No sooner does one of the four young men come up with the idea than they ...

Mini-spectrometer: Smaller than a coin

09-Oct-2019

ETH researchers have developed a compact infrared spectrometer. It’s small enough to fit on a computer chip but can still open up interesting possibilities – in space and in everyday life. Nowadays, a mobile phone can do almost anything: take photos or video, send messages, determine its present ...

A battery with a twist

25-Sep-2019

Markus Niederberger’s team of researchers at ETH has used stretchable materials to develop a battery that can be bent, stretched and twisted. For applications in bendable electronic devices, this is precisely the kind of battery they need. Today’s electronics industry is increasingly focusing on ...

Measuring ethanol’s deadly twin

18-Sep-2019

ETH researchers have developed an inexpensive, handheld measuring device that can distinguish between methanol and potable alcohol. It offers a simple, quick method of detecting adulterated or contaminated alcoholic beverages and is able to diagnose methanol poisoning in exhaled breath. Methanol ...

First all-metamaterial optical gas sensor

03-Sep-2019

Researchers have developed the first fully-integrated, non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) gas sensor enabled by specially engineered synthetic materials known as metamaterials. The sensor has no moving parts, requires little energy to operate and is among the smallest NDIR sensors ever created. The ...

3D printing of silicone components

22-Aug-2019

ETH spin-off Spectroplast has developed a method to make silicone products using a 3D printer. The young company now plans to bring to market customised medical products such as hearing aids, breast prosthesis for breast cancer patients and eventually even artificial heart valves. Their ultimate ...

How light steers electrons in metals

09-Aug-2019

ETH physicists have measured how electrons in so-called transition metals get redistributed within a fraction of an optical oscillation cycle. They observed the electrons getting concentrated around the metal atoms within less than a femtosecond. This regrouping might influence important ...

A catalyst for sustainable methanol

01-Aug-2019

Scientists at ETH Zurich and oil and gas company Total have developed a new catalyst that converts CO2 and hydrogen into methanol. Offering realistic market potential, the technology paves the way for the sustainable production of fuels and chemicals. The global economy still relies on the fossil ...

Targeting individual atoms

Researchers have found a way to apply NMR spectroscopy to individual atoms

26-Jun-2019

In recent decades, NMR spectroscopy has made it possible to capture the spatial structure of chemical and biochemical molecules. Now researchers at ETH have found a way to apply this measurement principle to individual atoms. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy – NMR spectroscopy for short – ...
