Research Zernike (ZIAM) Physics of nanodevices Opto-Spintronics of Nanostructures


We believe it is important to connect to the society outside academia, either by providing a view on our own research or inciting students towards a study in sciences.

See below our initiatives towards outreach!

Our work is facilitated by the Young Academy Groningen (YAG), of which Marcos is part of. See below the research minute video recoded for the YAG.

Publications and perspectives aimed at the general public

* Freddie Hendriks, Jan Hidding, and Marcos H. D. Guimarães, "Symmetry, Light and Spins in the Flatland", FMF Periodiek (Univ. of Groningen Physics and Appl. Physics Student Association)

* M. H. D. Guimarães, "Symmetry in the flatland", Journal of the association for Applied Physics students at the TU Delft, VvTP - De Physicus Issue July, page 42 (2019) .

Classroom demonstrations lab

Together with Jelle Blijleven, we run a Physics Demonstrations Lab. We aim to provide tools for lecturers at the university to make their classes more visual and interesting. At a later stage we will open our demonstrations lab to the local teaching community of the northen Netherlands and expand our demonstrations towards other scientific fields.

This effort is supported by the Young Academy Groningen and by the Physics and Applied Physics programs at the University of Groningen.
