18 Oct 2017 - Pepijn Pinkse elected OSA fellow

Prof. Dr. Pepijn Pinkse has been elected as a Fellow Member of The Optical Society (OSA) at the Society’s recent Board of Directors meeting.

28 Jul 2017 - ANP scientist Dr Lyuba Amitonova wins Veni grant.

Optical microscopy is a basic tool for biological research, but light scattering restricts imaging deep inside living organisms. 

16 Jun 2017 - Defining the Roadmap to Photonics at the World Technology Mapping Forum

The MESA+ consortium Applied Nanophotonics (ANP) proudly announces that at the ongoing World Technology Mapping Forum in Den Bosch (the Netherlands) our scientists Sonia Garcia Blanco, Jeroen Cornelissen and Willem Vos are actively participating. 

15 Jun 2017 - ANP retreat 2017 in Putten

25 Jul 2016 - Novel design strategy for hydrogen generating molecular photocatalysts

An international collaboration coordinated by scientists at the University of Twente (TNW/MESA+) has resulted in a new design approach for hydrogen generating photocatalysts.

12 May 2016 - Quantum physics inside a drop of paint

Inside a drop of paint, light is scattered so often that it seems impossible to demonstrate quantum effects.

28 Feb 2016 - Important step in understanding of light scattering A team of researchers from the University of Twente and from Philips in the Netherlands has suc­ceeded in taking an important step in understanding how light is scattered, absorbed and re-emitted in white light emitting di­odes (LEDs). This breakthrough in research is relevant to everyday lighting applications, and is being pub­lished in the American magazine Journal of Applied Physics. [More] 29 Jan 2016 - Super-sharp images through thin optical fibres Super-sharp images from within the human body made through tiny endoscopes have come a step closer to reality thanks to joint research by scientists from the University of Twente's MESA+ research institute, the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (MPL), FOM and Carl Zeiss AG. An advanced wavefront shaping method developed at the UT combined with unique optical fibres from MPL make it possible to focus lensless light at an unparalleled resolution. FOM postdoc Dr Lyubov Amitonova and her colleagues published their findings on 29 January in Optics Letters, the leading journal of the Optical Society of America.
