12 Mar 2014 - Measuring speed in flying inkjet drops
Physicists from the FOM workgroup Physics of Fluids (MESA+) at the University of Twente and from Océ-Technologies have developed a method to measure detailed speed data in flying inkjet drops. Their research was recently published in the first issue of the new Journal Physical Review Applied.
12 Mar 2014 - Light rides the waves
Researchers at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente in collaboration with the Paul Drude Institute in Berlin have succeeded in moving light from one end of a semiconducting nanowire to the other by means of surface acoustic waves, a kind of nanoscale earthquakes.
6 Mar 2014 - UT researchers create first thin layers of 'spin ice'
Researchers from the University of Twente MESA+ research institute and the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) have, as the first in the world, created thin films of a so-called 'spin ice' material. Spin ice materials are interesting for physicists, because magnetic monopole-like phenomena can occur in them. The results are published in the new scientific journal Applied Physics Letters Materials.

27 Feb 2014 - UT researchers develop strategy for targeted drug delivery
Researchers at the University of Twente's MESA+ research institute have developed a new strategy for delivering drugs to specific areas of the body in a targeted way.
18 Feb 2014 - Masteropleiding Nanotechnology gekenmerkt als Topopleiding
De masteropleiding Nanotechnology van de Universiteit Twente mag een jaar lang het kwaliteitszegel 'Topopleiding' dragen. In de Keuzegids Masters 2014 worden alle universitaire masters in Nederland met elkaar vergeleken. Met een score tussen de 20 en 100, mogen opleidingen met een score vanaf 76 zich 'top' noemen.
13 Feb 2014 - Nanoswitches converting light into macroscopic motion
Researchers of the University of Twente's MESA+ research institute have developed spiral ribbons made of molecules, that are able to convert light into complex macroscopic motion. Therefore, they managed to amplify molecular motion and translate it to the macroscopic world.
