EPFL researchers have developed a transistor based on excitons - a type of particle most people have not heard of - that is able to function at room temperature. This breakthrough could lead to a new breed of faster, more energy efficient and smaller electronics. Excitons could revolutionize the way engineers approach electronics.

microtechnology

The development of microtechnology in Switzerland was a result of the economic crisis in the watch industry. Beside the classical watch micromechanics, new technologies like electronics, optics, computer technology and microsystems were used in watch construction. Today, microtechnology is one of the key technologies of the 21st century and one of the key sectors in Switzerland’s economy.
