Artistic representation of coherent control of femtosecond nanomagnons The rise of the digital information era posed a daunting challenge to develop ever faster and smaller devices for data storage and processing. An approach which relies on the magnetic moment of electrons (i.e. the spin) rather than the charge, has recently turned into major research fields, called spintronics and magnonics. Read more
Michel Orrit, winner of the Physicaprijs 2016 Today it was announced that the Physicaprijs 2016 has been awarded to FOM workgroup leader professor Michel Orrit (Leiden University) for his groundbreaking work in the area of single molecule spectroscopy. Read more
Figure 1. Two microscope slides Researchers from the FOM Foundation and the Department of Imaging Physics at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have demonstrated that for a light source at very short distances, 10 nanometres or less, the transparent conductor indium tin oxide (ITO) no longer behaves transparently, but exhibits a strong decrease in the light intensity emitted. This decrease is so strongly dependent on the distance to the ITO that the researchers can use it to measure distances. Using light they can determine distances under 10 nanometres to an accuracy of 0.3 nanometres, which is 1,000 times smaller than the wavelength of the light. Read more
