NWO-Veni Abstract
Dr S. (Saeedeh) Farokhipoor (f), RUG - Physics
Ever-smaller electronic components cannot be manufactured using current technology. Scientists will explore the self-assembly of miniature capacitors in novel materials, for information storage. Reduction of both size and power consumption enables advances in electronics to continue well into the future.

More information on the Veni grants awarded to RUG/UMCG scientists can be found here and more general information on the NWO website.
