research scientists at work

A joint program by EPF Lausanne and ETH Zurich, two of Europe's leading science and engineering schools.

Among the potential candidates for a long-term substitution of fossil fuel, power generation by nuclear fission is one of the options with low environmental impact, base-load compatibility, vast fuel reserves and a final energy price that is nearly independent of the price of the raw energy carrier.

Lattice structure absorbs vibrations

Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a lattice structure capable of absorbing a wide range of vibrations while also being useful as a load-bearing component – for example, in propellers, rotors and rockets. It can absorb vibrations in the audible range, which are the most undesirable in engineering applications. Read more
