Farewell: the NCCR MUST ended

The general scientific driver of the NCCR MUST (Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology) was to understand how matter changes its structure and charge distribution, how quanta of energy are being transported on a microscopic and ultrafast scale, and how this relates to function. Through the NCCR MUST , we aimed to coordinate efforts and to amplify synergies between different Swiss research groups.

Structural changes beyond the lifetime of the NCCR MUST have been achieved with 2 FastLabs (at University of Bern and EPFL), 14 new professors at the two leading houses (University of Bern and ETHZ), know-how transfer to SwissFEL with 8 former NCCR MUST PhD students or postdocs now working at the beamlines, 2 computer clusters (at EPFL and University of Basel), 3 start-up companies, new master level courses in ultrafast science related topics, a comprehensive graduate textbook in ultrafast lasers, the book "A journey into time in powers of ten", the book "Inspiring conversations with women professors", and 2 new networks: the ETH Women Professors Forum and the Swiss Society for Photon Science.

The NCCR MUST has placed great value on outreach to the Swiss society. More details on strategies, output and successes in Equal Opportunities, Education and Communication, and Technology Transfer can be found elsewhere on our website.
