Figure 1. The experiment Researchers from FOM Institute DIFFER are the first to have demonstrated that heavier atoms in a material surface can react directly with a surrounding gas. The so-called Eley-Rideal reaction has never previously been demonstrated for atoms heavier than hydrogen. The Eley-Rideal process requires less energy than a reaction between two atoms that are both attached to the material. The discovery could lead to more efficient catalysts for the production of synthetic fuel, for example. The researchers publish the results on 29 July online in Physical Review Letters. Read more
Logo NWO NWO awarded a Veni grant to eight talented young physics researchers. The eight physicists were part of the 152 highly promising researchers who have recently gained their PhDs and can spend the next three years working on their scientific ideas. A Veni grant is worth a maximum of 250,000 euros and is one of the individual grants from NWO to encourage scientific talent. In total, NWO invests 38 million euros in this round. Read more
Figure 1. Logo NERA To increase the success of participation in the Top sector Energy and seizing the opportunities in the European context more cooperation is needed on both operational and scientific level. With this ambition the large public organisations involved in energy research in the Netherlands have joined forces in a single alliance for the first time. They are doing this under the auspices of the association Netherlands Energy Research Alliance (NERA), of which FOM is a member. Read more
