Investigation into violation of research integrity is concluded
Last summer a breach of integrity in scientific research was reported to the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI. PSI appointed a committee to look into the allegations. The investigative committee concluded that the rules of good scientific practice, as implemented in PSI guidelines, were violated. The management of the Paul Scherrer Institute takes this incident very seriously.

3Q: Alan Lightman on science, religion, and our yearning for absolute knowledge
A few years ago MIT scholar Alan Lightman was lying in a boat off the coast of Maine, staring at the stars, when he felt as if he were "becoming a part of something far larger than himself." This moment, which he calls a "transcendent experience," gave him a greater appreciation for the allure of the ethereal and the permanent.

Hydrogen as a pedalling aid
An e-bike fueled with hydrogen instead of electricity? No, this is not a utopia, but reality: industrial gas specialist Linde has developed a hydrogen pedelec equipped with a compact fuel cell instead of the usual battery. Florian Freund was inspired by the invention for his Matura thesis: He developed a prototype with which the hydrogen e-bike can be refuelled safely at the H 2 filling station on the Empa mobility demonstrator move.
