Text: The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether PSI employs 2100 people. Among the research pursued at the Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems, Paul Scherrer Institute - ETH Zurich (based at PSI), we investigate nanomagnetic systems ( http://www.mesosys.mat.ethz.ch ). We intend to continue our research in this successful area, aiming towards demonstrations of devices for new methods of computation.
