Dr. Giulia Fulvia Mancini
has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for her project entitled 'Advanced EUV/soft X-ray microscopy in the ultrafast regime: imaging functionality of nanomaterials across length scales' (ULTRAIMAGE). The Starting Grant is worth EUR 1.5 million, intended to allow talented young researchers to set up a research team and spend five years on their research.
ULTRAIMAGE tackles the need for novel strategies in the characterization of functional nanomaterials, through the study of their fundamental structure-property relationships. Key to this advance is the development of innovative imaging modalities, which combine ultrahigh resolution in both time and space. The insights from the research will enable a better understanding of fundamental nanoscale behaviour, vital to a better design of energy-efficient next generation devices.
NWA Idea Generator project for Kottapalli to develop low-cost sensorized shoes for patients to monitor gait and avoid fall conditions through a biofeedback voice alert.
Ymkje Stienstra (UMCG), Joram Tarusaria and Ajay Kottapalli receive an NWA Idea Generator Grant .
Ten years ago, Sijbren Otto, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Groningen, discovered self-replicating molecules that spontaneously formed rings, which then organized into stacks. These growing stacks were able to divide by breaking in...
