11 Feb 2014 - Controlling the emission of light with a crystal: size matters
By using photonic crystals, we can highly manipulate light in a profound way. They enable us to 'lock' light or create zones in which it is impossible for light of certain wavelengths to enter. With no alternative to work with, up until recently physicists had to do their calculations using non-existent infinitely large crystals.
11 Feb 2014 - MESA+ technical-commercial director ready for a new challenge
Miriam Luizink, the technical-commercial director of the MESA+ research institute for nanotechnology, will be resigning her post as of 1 July 2014. She is ready to take on a new challenge at the University of Twente or perhaps elsewhere. The UT Executive Board has been speaking with her about the options.
6 Feb 2014 - UT membrane able to separate hot gases
Researchers at the MESA+ research institute at the University of Twente have developed a new type of membrane for separating gases in the chemical industry. What makes the hybrid unique is that it can also be used at high temperatures and high pressures.
31 Jan 2014 - Dave Blank talks nanotechnology on NTR Academie
Every year, thousands of people still die as a result of intestinal cancer or lung cancer. To be able to effectively battle the cancer it is crucial to diagnose the disease at an early stage. This will be possible in the future thanks to nanotechnology.
