MESA+ is one of the world’s largest nanotechnology research institutes; and it’s the largest research institute in this field in the Netherlands. A total of 525 researchers work together on cutting-edge research at the highest level.


19 Dec 2014 - Inktdruppels UT in Images of the Year 2014 van Nature Een hogesnelheidsopname van microscopisch kleine inktdruppels is door Nature verkozen tot één van de Images of the Year 2014. De opname, gemaakt door onderzoekers van de Physics of Fluids groep van de Universiteit Twente (MESA+), laat inktdruppels zien die met een snelheid van honderdduizend druppels per seconde worden afgeschoten door een printkop. 15 Dec 2014 - Fraud-proof credit card possible because of quantum physics Cards, such as identification cards and credit cards, which are impossible to hack. With a system based on quantum physics this will soon be possible. Researchers from the UT research institute MESA+ and the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have together developed a method with which you can authenticate physical objects which are impossible to copy. The research has been published today in The Optical Society’s (OSA) new high-impact journal Optica (and is shown on the cover). 10 Dec 2014 - Simulating fluid surfaces: for better understanding on micro and macro scales Many physical phenomena can only be explained if you understand what is happening at a molecular level. In order to prevent thrombosis, for example, you have to have in-depth knowledge of how individual blood cells behave in the veins. And in order to understand how you could improve inkjet printers, it is important to thoroughly understand the interaction between the ink drops and the tubes through which the ink is conveyed. Computer simulations are an important weapon in the battle for this fundamental knowledge. Prof. Dr Jens Harting works at the MESA+ research institute on state-of-the-art computer simulations in the field of microfluidics. On 11 December he gives his inaugural lecture at the University of Twente. 4 Dec 2014 - Willem Vos receives Descartes-Huygens Award On 26 January 2015 Willem Vos of UT research institute MESA+ will receive the Descartes-Huygens Award in Amsterdam. The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) announced this today. He has been granted the award for his excellent research and his contribution to the French-Dutch collaboration. The award, 23,000 euros, is intended for a stay as guest researcher France.
