In a recently funded FOM program we will study the violation of fundamental symmetries and the time-variation of the constants. Using the most precise techniques available to us, we will measure small energy shifts in selected atoms and molecules. In this joint program with the VU in Amsterdam, we create a unique environment for these challenging precision experiments and their interpretation. The research extends upon the infrastructure and expertise that has been build up at the KVI, specifically in the Fundamental Interactions and Symmetries (TRIMP) group. More information on the program can be found here.
Dr. Michael Lerch en Sanne van Dijk, twee veelbelovende RUG-wetenschappers, gaan dankzij het programma Rubicon van de Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO) twee jaar onderzoek doen aan buitenlandse topinstituten.
His opponent was fourfold world champion Alexander Schwarzman. Boomstra, who studies Physics at the University of Groningen, also won the title in 2016.
Galaxies grow by giving birth to new stars, but Amina Helmi found evidence to support the theory that parts of the Milky Way have also grown by merging with other galaxies. She had to wait for the Gaia space mission to produce data before she was able...
