NWO START-UP Grant Marcos Guimarães

02 August 2019

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.

START-UP programme

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 topics range from research into developing transparent materials for electronics to investigating the hot matter formed during the Big Bang.The START-UP programme is part of the Physics and Chemistry Sector Plan. This was the fourth and final round of the NWO START-UP programme.
