The PhD work concerns experimental studies of plasma cleaning of so-called first mirrors for future fusion
facilities, such as ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor). First mirrors will play a
crucial role in numerous ITER optical diagnostic systems. Deposition of material eroded from the wall of
ITER can degrade the reflectivity of the first mirrors severely. Plasma cleaning using radio-frequency
capacitively coupled plasmas is currently being considered as the most promising in-situ cleaning
technique. The PhD work will mainly be focused on three different aspects of plasma cleaning for ITER
– Investigation on plasma cleaning in magnetic fields, benchmarked with simulations.
– Development of End of Cleaning Indicator (monitoring of the process).
– Research on driven grounded electrode plasma discharges.
The Nano Imaging Lab would like to invite you to our second User Event. By short talks
the wide spectrum of applications done in our lab will be presented and the event offers
the opportunity to discuss with other users.
The meeting is open to everybody, who is interested in the activities of the Nano Imaging
Lab, not only to users.
The Transport at Nanoscale Interfaces Laboratory at Empa Dübendorf is looking for a skilled scientist/engineer with background in biomedical engineering or a related field to work on an industry collaboration project for 6-12 months. The candidate will work on the development of a novel point-of- care in-vitro diagnostics platform in close collaboration with the startup company MOMM Diagnostics GmbH.
The aim of this project is to find out the most mechanostable pulling geometry of an engineered lipocalin which acts as an antibody against a tumor-associated receptor, cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen-4 (CTLA- 4). The results will deepen our knowledge of the mechanical properties of proteins and help us optimize the design of drug delivery nanoparticles. […]
On 22-26 April 2019, EPFL will have the honour to host the 11th International Physicists‘ Tournament (IPT 2019) – the biggest international competition in physics for teams of university students. This event will bring together almost 200 undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and professors and will be a real feast of fascinating experiments, brave theories and spectacular physics fights! If you are a PhD student or professor, you can become a jury member (send an e-mail to evgenii.glushkov -at- epfl.ch) and judge one or several physics fights. Or you can just come and watch the fights, including the Grand Final!For all updates on the IPT2019, please check the official website, Facebook and Twitter.

Project description. This project proposes a new approach that could overcome some of these current limitations: to develop a methodology for the construction of multi-sites ArMs based on the controlled assembly of small de novo peptidic bricks (“molecular Lego”, see scheme). The bricks are accessible by peptide synthesis, rendering their functionalization at a single site straightforward. Upon assembly of several units, a more complex structure (protein-like) will be obtained, placing the different functional centers at a desired distance to work in concert. One could then rationally design complex ArMs simply by assembling those bricks. To our knowledge, no such system exists yet. […]
