Monday 27 - Wednesday 29 June, the IMM organizes the first Summer School 2022 on Spectroscopy of Quantum Materials. Registration for PhD students, postdocs, as well as staff of the participating departments is now open.
The latest edition of the biannual Laserlab-Europe Newsletter is out now. The theme 'Lasers Shaping the Nanoworld' includes interesting research from the 35 partners, including that of Andrei Kirilyuk on page 4.
An important step in the route to develop nanoscale ultrafast magneto-optics: 'Ultrafast demagnetization in a ferrimagnet under electromagnetic field funneling' - article now published in Nanoscale. And the research is featured on the cover.
Researchers used the FELICE free-electron laser to show how water is split, assisted by a C60-supported vanadium atom. This fundamental insight in the water splitting reaction showcases the importance of supports in single atom catalysis, and how they modify the reaction potential energy surface.
Take a look inside our building on the campus of Radboud University via a 360 degree virtual tour. You can zoom in on all the machinery and equipment. In short videos the staff tells you more about the instruments and the research performed.
On Friday 27 August, Olga Lushchikova will defend her thesis 'The structure and reactivity of gas-phase copper clusters'. The results can contribute to the development of more efficient catalytic materials.
March 17, Sandra Wiersma defended her thesis on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs). She was appointed at the University of Amsterdam and stationed at FELIX Laboratory, where she used the unique, high-intensity light to explore the properties of PAHs. Her work makes an important contribution to the knowledge on PAHs and how they change under high intensity.
