Christian Regg new Director of the Paul Scherrer Institute
The Swiss Federal Council already elected him as PSI's new Director last November. Today (1 April), Christian Regg took over the helm at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in difficult times. The coronavirus pandemic is also a challenge for large organisations and employers like PSI. However, PSI's unique research facilities also offer opportunities for researching the virus and thus finding ways to combat it.

Longest microwave quantum link
Longest microwave quantum link
Physicists at ETH Zurich have demonstrated a five-metre-long microwave quantum link, the longest of its kind date. It can be used both for future quantum computer networks and for experiments in basic quantum physics research. Collaboration is everything - also in the quantum world. To build powerful quantum computers in the future, it will be necessary to connect several smaller computers to form a kind of cluster or local network (LAN).

Carbon chains can adopt fusilli or spaghetti type shapes depending if they have odd or even numbers of atoms
Carbon chains can adopt fusilli or spaghetti type shapes depending if they have odd or even numbers of atoms
Scientists at the University of Bristol have now found that carbon chains can also adopt helical shapes, but, unlike DNA, the shape is dependent on how many atoms there are in the chain, with chains having even numbers of carbon atoms adopting helical, fusilli-like shapes and chains with odd numbers of carbon atoms adopting floppy, spaghetti-like shapes.
