Wednesday, the 25th of January, PhD student Rianne van Outersterp successfully defended her PhD thesis ‘Metabolite identification using infrared ion spectroscopy’ and obtained her degree with distinction Cum Laude.
Curious what it would be like to work in a scientific environment and passionate about providing support with your organizational and social skills? Look no further! We are currently looking for an office assistant to strengthen our team.
Monday 6 - Thursday 9 MarchThe workshop will be devoted to the emerging field of ultrafast opto-magneto-electronics, that combines the ideas and concepts of opto-magnetism and spin transport with photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and storage of information. Registration is now open.
Christmas came a little early this year for two of our researchers at HFML-FELIX. Prof. dr. Britta Redlich and dr. Viktoria Eless received word just last week that The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has granted a Phase 1 Take-off grant to their PiCard project regarding the development of quantum information hardware! Without this complementary hardware supporting quantum computers, uses of the technology will likely remain limited.
The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has recently granted about 10 million euro’s in funding to a consortium aiming to create more sustainable forms of Information Technology under the name NL-ECO. This consortium consists of 33 institutions from all over the Netherlands and Europe, among which HFML-FELIX, working together to reach this important goal.
The Holland Research School for Molecular Chemistry has awarded long-time FELIX user Prof. Sandra M. Lang from Ulm University an HRSMC Fellowship for a 5-month collaborative research stay in the Netherlands.
Our brand-new undulator produced its first light, thereby extending the tuning range of FELIX-2 to 3 micron. The extension of the FELIX wavelength range is one of the projects of the HFML-FELIX NWO Roadmap grant 2018.
Maarten Berben investigated two families of low dimensional and superconducting materials with electronic transport measurements under the influence of magnetic fields. He discovered that these metals also show strange behaviour when it comes to magnetoresistance. This suggests a new paradigm for magnetotransport in strange metals. He successfully defended his PhD thesis on 23 May. Based on the outstanding quality of the thesis and excellent defence, he was awarded a doctorate with the distinction ‘cum laude’.
