  • 1232 EPFL students design a rocket from scratch
    16.08.19 - Summer series–Student projects. Students on this year’s EPFL Rocket Team designed a rocket that’s three meters tall and weighs 23 kilograms. Dubbed Eiger, it took home fifth place in its category at the 2019 Spaceport America Cup. From 18 to 22 June, EPFL Rocket Team took part in t... [anonymous]
  • 1231 A miniature stretchable pump for the next generation of soft robots
    14.08.19 - Scientists at EPFL have developed a tiny pump that could play a big role in the development of autonomous soft robots, lightweight exoskeletons and smart clothing. Flexible, silent and weighing only one gram, it is poised to replace the rigid, noisy and bulky pumps currently used. The sc... [anonymous]
  • 1230 How our biological clocks are locked in sync
    13.08.19 - Scientists from EPFL's Institute of Bioengineering have discovered that our circadian clock and our cell-cycle are in fact, synchronized. Nothing in biology is static; everything is fluid, dynamic and ever-moving. Often, this movement occurs in repeating patterns — regular, measura... [anonymous]
  • 1229 Students turned wood pallets into furniture
    12.08.19 - A group of EPFL students who came together in the Student Kreativity and Innovation Lab (SKIL) has created a catalog of designs for turning wood pallets into furniture. With support from Act 4 Change Lab, the students will have a chance to see their project carried to fruition this fall ... [anonymous]
  • 1228 An algorithm to detect outside influences on the media
    09.08.19 - EPFL researchers recently developed an algorithm that maps out the media landscape and reveals biases and hidden influences in the news industry. News consumers may not be aware that the way their local media outlet selects and presents news stories can be affected by the media group tha... [anonymous]
  • 1227 Tiny biodegradable circuits for releasing painkillers inside the body
    07.08.19 - EPFL researchers have developed biodegradable microresonators that can be heated locally with a wireless system. Doctors could soon be using them in implants to control the release of painkillers within tissue. Patients fitted with an orthopedic prosthetic commonly experience a period of... [anonymous]
  • 1226 Smart greenhouses let you grow vegetables in your own apartment
    05.08.19 - Two EPFL Master’s students have co-developed a technology for growing a small garden right in your home or office. They launched a startup to market their smart indoor greenhouses and installed prototypes at EPFL with the support of the Act for Change LAB platform (EPFL Sustainability)... [anonymous]
  • 1225 School of Life Sciences welcomes students for Summer Research Program
    02.08.19 - Each summer, EPFL’s School of Life Sciences welcomes students from all over the world to participate in hands-on research projects and career-advancing workshops, in a unique, two-month science experience known as the Summer Research Program. Founded in 2006 by Professor Hilal Lashuel,... [anonymous]
  • 1224 EPFL's researchers open research center to test solar panels in Dakar
    31.07.19 - EPFL's scientists recently inaugurated a new research center in Senegal to test solar panels and their underlying components. Founded in conjunction with École Supérieure Polytechnique de Dakar, the center will help solar-panel operators assess the quality of parts they source loc... [anonymous]
  • 1223 A new way to experience traditional music of Afghanistan
    30.07.19 - (Summer Series): Mathieu Clavel, a master’s student in the College of Humanities (CDH) Digital Humanities Institute, is bringing musical heritage from Afghanistan to life using tools from data science and virtual reality. When Mathieu Clavel set out to create an immersive virtual ex... [anonymous]
  • 1222 Digitizing and replicating the world of materials
    29.07.19 - A team of EPFL researchers has set itself the lofty goal of building the biggest-ever database that digitizes the visual appearance of all natural and synthetic materials in the world. Is it possible to digitally replicate the way light shines off silk, the kaleidoscope of colors on butt... [anonymous]
  • 1221 Next-gen membranes for carbon capture
    26.07.19 - EPFL chemical engineers have developed a new class of high-performance membranes for carbon capture that greatly exceed current targets. A major greenhouse gas, CO2 produced from burning fossil fuels is still mostly released into the atmosphere, adding to the burden of global warming. On... [anonymous]
  • 1220 Adding a polymer stabilizes collapsing metal-organic frameworks
    23.07.19 - Porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have many applications like carbon capture and water-cleaning. However, MOFs with large pores tend to collapse. Chemists and chemical engineers at EPFL have now solved the problem by adding small amounts of a polymer into the MOF pores, an act that ... [anonymous]
  • 1219 EPFLoop races to third place in Los Angeles
    22.07.19 - Using similar propulsion technology, the Hyperloop pods developed by EPFL and ETH Zurich turned in a solid performance in Los Angeles: EPFLoop topped out at 238 km/h in the airless tube set up by SpaceX, while Swissloop peaked at 259km/h.
