A resonator for electrons

Resonators are an important tool in physics. The curved mirrors inside the resonators usually focus light waves that act, for instance, on atoms. Physicists have now managed to build a resonator for electrons and to direct the standing waves thus created onto an artificial atom.

Grant for catalysis research on atomistic level

Researchers will produce a new research methodology that, on atomistic level, will enable customisation of the next generation of catalysts, which may become the cornerstones of future energy systems.

Studies of individual nanoparticles can be the key to future catalysis

Studying catalytic processes on one single nanoparticle at a time, instead of on several billion simultaneously as has previously been the case, will create unique and more in-depth understanding of catalytic reactions on nanoparticles than previously possible - and it will at the same time lay the foundation for a new and sustainable energy technology and chemical synthesis.

Nanoplasmonics makes the impossible possible

Researchers will take on a task that until now has been deemed impossible: creating strong interaction between light and magnetic fields and determining ways to control light with magnetism on the nanoscale.

Chemistry controls magnetism

Magnets are well-known from the physics lessons at school, but they are hardly covered in chemistry lectures; and it is still a chemical process by means of which researchers have succeeded in controlling magnetic properties in bulk ferromagnets.

Dielectric film has refractive index close to air

Researchers have developed a dielectric film that has optical and electrical properties similar to air, but is strong enough to be incorporated into electronic and photonic devices - making them both more efficient and more mechanically stable.
