This year marks the nineteenth edition of the festival, and UT will once again treat visitors to lectures on nanotechnology, physics, climate change, robotics and other fascinating topics. The Universitent will have a new look and feel this year. It will once again be located in the theatre meadow, and all activities will be included in the Zwarte Cross theatre programme. 19 Jun 2015 - New edition MESA+ Magazine With pleasure we present you the newest MESA+ Magazine.This issue is all about collaboration, which is inherent to activities at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology.   23 Jan 2015 - Baptism of the Triton As of today the ICE/QTM group has a Triton dilution fridge operational. Base temperature is below 10 mK and samples can be measured at magnetic fields up to 8 T and electric gate voltages up to 200 V.
14 Jan 2015 - Exhibition ‘The beauty of science’ Enschede’s Twentse Welle museum is staging an exhibition entitled “The beauty of science”, with work from members of UT’s Young Academy (JA@UT). This exhibition, lastig until April 2015 presents exquisite research images. The Mexican artist Daniela Flores Magón has moulded these images into a fine exhibition, which is housed in the museum’s futuristic “Egg”. 15 Dec 2014 - ICE on ice: Curling clinic Our Christmas activity this year was a curling clinic after a delicious lunch in De Broeierd. Although many members of our group enjoy ice skating, nobody did curling before. Luckily, with the guidance of the skilled trainers of the local ice track, we could already hold some competitions against each other after a few basic exercises. As you can see on the photo, nobody was badly injured despite the slippery ice, and everybody enjoyed curling very much!
