The annual meeting is a symposium meant to showcase various projects and programs of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology and improve cooperation between different research groups. The event’s programme included lectures by researchers from MESA+ as well as internationally renowned scientists, networking sessions and a poster competition. 15 Sep 2017 - Towards unconventional electronics Electronics that functions like the brain does, atoms crossing the speed limit, superconducting nanostructures for energy efficient chips. Three innovative UT projects receive funding from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research NWO. 13 Sep 2017 - Tracing the light inside LEDs White LEDs can be made even more efficient and powerful, photonics researchers of the University of Twente and Philips Lighting now prove. They found a detailed way for describing the light that stays inside the LED by absorption and scattering. This is very valuable information for the design process. 7 Sep 2017 - Substitution of MESA+-director Janneke Hoedemaekers during maternity leave Starting on Monday 18 september, technical commercial director Janneke Hoedemaekers will go on maternity leave. She will be replaced by two interim directors: Tineke Ringerwöle en Raoul Oostenbrink.
