FCC produce scienza per quasi un secolo

Nella primavera del 2020, la comunità europea della fisica delle particelle deciderà una nuova strategia europea che evidenzi gli obiettivi strategici a lungo termine in questo importante settore della ricerca fondamentale. Nel dicembre 2018 gli scienziati svizzeri - organizzati dall'Istituto svizzero di fisica delle particelle / CHIPP - hanno formulato il loro contributo alla nuova strategia europea. Günther Dissertori - professore al Politecnico federale di Zurigo, membro del Consiglio direttivo del CHIPP e Nuovo delegato scientifico della Svizzera al Consiglio del CERN - spiega i punti principali del contributo strategico svizzero.

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.

Tools made of light: Nobel Prize in Physics 2018

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 2018 with one half to Arthur Ashkin (USA) and the other half jointly to Gérard Mourou (France) and Donna Strickland (Canada). Ashkin invented optical tweezers that grab particles, atoms, viruses and other living cells with their laser beam fingers. Mourou and Strickland paved the way towards the shortest and most intense laser pulses ever created by mankind.

«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.
