• 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.
