How photonics takes you one step closer to personalized medicine

Imagine that you can evaluate your health on a day-to-day basis, ensuring that no small sign of critical illness is missed. Imagine a world where early treatment – or even prevention – of diseases saves and improves numerous lives.
With this goal in mind, researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Australian National University (ANU) set out to detect and locate tiny molecules, which can serve as an early indication of illness. Read more

How lasers in space help you find your way

Above our heads, three satellites orbit the Earth. The satellites form the Swarm mission. Onboard the satellites are some complex equipment with the cool name “Absolute Scalar Magnetometers”. Their job is to measure changes in the Earth's magnetic field. The data is used to create the World Magnetic Model – a map of the Earth’s magnetic field. Read more

Look, no hands!

A new, advanced optical technology makes it possible to characterize ultra-thin materials without touching them.
The technology has the potential to revolutionize the semiconductor industry and create brand new opportunities within sustainable electronics and data management. Read more
