University Study Awards 2019 - Femke Bangma
Date of news: 4 September 2019
Femke researched materials with magnetic and super-conductive qualities in the High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML). To conduct her research, she had to create her own components for the experimental design, become an expert in the techniques for reaching milliKelvin temperatures, and learn how to combine this with the use of extremely strong magnetic fields. The experimental design that Femke developed with her colleagues has become part of the HFML facility, and can be used by physicists visiting Nijmegen from around the world. Her research also led to follow-up projects.
