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’.
Researchers from HFML-FELIX are partners in a project that has just been granted 21.5 million euros from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. Over the next 10 years, they will work together with researchers from the IMM and at several other universities on new, more efficient materials suitable for information processing in the quantum age. The project is led by Utrecht University.
Monday 28 February, Andrea Marchese defended his thesis on Electron cyclotron resonance in plasmas using intense THz radiation. His research was centred around the free-electron lasers and high field magnets of HFML-FELIX.
The collaborative project 'National Individual floating Transport Infrastructure (NIfTI)' between HFML-FELIX and other faculties of Radboud University as well as the HAN University of Applied Sciences has won the RU Faculty of Science Team Science Award.
