Swiss Foundations Strongly Support Science

An increasing number of foundations in Switzerland support the sciences. Two-thirds focus on a specific research area and half of them further limit their support to a single type of grant. For universities, these foundations represent important partners in implementing their projects faster.

Philanthropy for science is the trend. The number of foundations specifically supporting science and higher education is increasing even faster than the...

Im Focus: Mysterious molecules in space

Researchers at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics finger silicon-capped hydrocarbons as possible source of mysterious 'diffuse interstellar bands'

Over the vast, empty reaches of interstellar space, countless small molecules tumble quietly though the cold vacuum. Forged in the fusion furnaces of ancient...

Im Focus: From Finding Nemo to minerals – what riches lie in the deep sea?

As fishing and the harvesting of metals, gas and oil have expanded deeper and deeper into the ocean, scientists are drawing attention to the services provided by the deep sea, the world’s largest environment.

“This is the time to discuss deep-sea stewardship before exploitation is too much farther underway,” says lead-author Andrew Thurber. In a review published...

Im Focus: A transistor-like amplifier for single photons

A team of scientists at MPQ achieves a twentyfold amplification of single-photon signals with the help of an ultracold quantum gas.

Data transmission over long distances usually utilizes optical techniques via glass fibres – this ensures high speed transmission combined with low power...
