Shaking light with sound 15th July, 2020
Combining integrated photonics and MEMS technology, scientists from EPFL and Purdue University demonstrate monolithic piezoelectric control of integrated optical frequency combs with bulk acoustic waves. The technology opens up integrated ultrafast acousto-optic modulation for demanding applications.
Using magnetic worms to engineer nanoscale communication systems 15th July, 2020
Researchers at EPFL have shown that electromagnetic waves coupled to precisely engineered structures known as artificial ferromagnetic quasicrystals allow for more efficient information transmission and processing at the nanoscale. Their research also represents the first practical demonstration of Conway worms, a theoretical concept for the description of quasicrystals.

Multicolor super-resolution imaging made easy 16th June, 2020
Scientists at EPFL have developed robust and easy-to-implement multicolor super-resolution imaging. The approach is based on the simultaneous acquisition of two spectral channels followed by spectral cross-cumulant analysis and unmixing. They exploit fluorophore blinking and spectral crosstalk for the generation of additional color channels with super-resolved images.

Bringing magnetic resonance to fertility treatment 9th April, 2020
EPFL spin-off Annaida is developing a magnetic resonance system that can detect the chemistry inside the tiniest living organisms. The technology’s initial application will be in the field of fertility treatment, where it will be used to assess the viability of embryos before implantation. The company has just raised one million Swiss francs to validate safety and efficacy of its technology.
EPFL researchers have been working for weeks to help fight the pandemic and mitigate its short- and long-term consequences. Studies are already under way on methods to stem the spread of the virus, diagnose the disease and discover a vaccine. EPFL researchers are also part of an EU initiative called PEPP-PT to develop an app that can identify people who have been in contact with a coronavirus carrier. Hackathons are yet another element of our School’s effort to combat COVID-19.
