  • Type-II Weyl semimetals proposed by the team of Matthias Troyer

    A team of researchers of Professor Matthias Troyer, group leader in MARVEL, and professor for Computational Physics at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at ETH Zurich, propose the existence of a previously overlooked type of Weyl fermion.

  • Volcano plots used for first time in homogeneous catalysis

    For the first time ever, MARVEL researchers in the group of Clémence Corminboeuf at EPFL used volcano plots – normally used in heterogeneous catalysis research – to study homogeneous catalysis.

  • Graphene Meets Heat Waves

    MARVEL researchers in the group of Nicola Marzari at EPFL have shed new light on the fundamental mechanisms of heat dissipation in graphene and other two-dimensional materials. They have shown that heat can propagate as a wave over very long distances. This is key information for engineering the electronics of tomorrow.
