FOM workgroup leader Prof.dr. Davide Iannuzzi and Dr.ir. Johan Padding have received a European Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). It involves a sum of maximum 2,75 million euro.
A research team led by FOM workgroup leader prof.dr. Wim Ubachs and dr. Rick Bethlem has once again demonstrated that the mass ratio between electrons and protons has remained the same over the past 7.5 billion years. The group, which published this conclusion last January
has recently performed a wide range of measurements that confirm their earlier finding. The new results will be published on 4 December in Physical Review Letters.
Today the Dijkgraaf Committee presented the vision document Chemistry & Physics, Fundamental For Our Future
to its originators, professor Ben Feringa, chair of NWO Chemical Sciences Divisional Board and member of Regiegroep Chemie
, and professor Eric Eliel, chair of Platform Universitaire Natuurkunde
. The vision document describes the ambitions for physics and chemistry for the next ten years and is illustrated with the dreams of several young researchers.
