The NWO has awarded dr. Marcos Guimarães of the Zernike Insitute for Advanced Materials (Faculty of Science and Engineering) a START-UP Grant for his project 'Controlling spins through symmetry in two dimensions'. The researchers will engineer and manipulate the symmetries of two-dimensional materials to control their magnetic and spintronic properties. These properties will then be measured using a combination of electrical and optical techniques.
The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded nearly three million euros to seven recently appointed researchers in physics and chemistry through the START-UP programme. Other researchers who were awarded a grant are from the Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente, Radboud University Nijmegen and Utrecht University.
The timing, route, and destination for godwit migration is learned rather than innate. Researchers at the University of Groningen discovered this in a daring experiment, which has been published in the latest issue of the journal Current Biology.
The grant is worth EUR 500,000, of which Avraamidou and Sburlea receive around EUR 100,000.
George Azzopardi and Guru Swaroop Bennabhaktula from the Faculty of Science and Engineering have won the Ben Feringa Impact Award 2023 for their project ‘4NSEEK; Forensic Against Sexual Exploitation of Children’. In the ‘students’ category, Nine van...
