The SPIED website consolidates spin-off information that is available at the individual spin-off's parent institutions of the ETH Domain. Spin-offs are invited to supplement further information on a voluntary basis.
An ETH Domain spin-off is a company that is based on intellectual property generated in an ETH Domain institution and is founded by ETH Domain staff or students based on their activity in their institution. The company has to be based on a sound and sustainable business idea / business plan.
Structural crystallography is often thought to be synonymous with single-crystal crystallography, yet for several decades, powder diffraction has made important contributions to the understanding of materials structure and behavior. However, it is perhaps the last decade that has seen some of the most remarkable breakthroughs in experimental powder diffraction and in the analysis of powder diffraction data, to the extent that it is no longer considered to be an analytical technique of last resort. Instrumentation at both the laboratory and facility level has become increasingly versatile to the extent that throughput and resolution are no longer mutually exclusive. In the field of data analysis, ingenious algorithms that take full advantage of modern computing power have meant that inorganic, molecular and even protein structures are being solved and refined relatively routinely. This course at the prestigious Erice's School is intended to serve as a complete introduction to the diverse field of powder diffraction, and provides a firm grounding from which attendees can build future research achievements.
The Paul Scherrer Institute, PSI, is the largest research centre for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform world-class research in three main subject areas: Matter and Material; Energy and the Environment; and Human Health. By conducting fundamental and applied research, we work on long-term solutions for major challenges facing society, industry and science.
The Institute belongs to Department of Molecular Design - Italian National Research Council.
