Figure 1. Shell, NWO, FOM On 24 February 2015, a call for proposals was published for approximately 15 PhD research projects in the field of computational sciences, relevant to the energy-related themes within the top sectors Energy and Chemistry. This is the fourth and last call in the joint programme 'Computational sciences for energy research' (CSER) of Shell, NWO and FOM. The call is open for all areas. Research proposals in the area of computational geosciences (geophysics, petrophysics, geomechanics, geology and geochemistry) are explicitly invited. Read more
Figure 1. Very Large Telescope FOM PhD student Julija Bagdonaite and FOM workgroup leader Wim Ubachs (VU University) have confirmed that the mass ratio between electrons and protons has remained the same over the past 12.4 billion years. They came to this conclusion after observing hydrogen molecules in a distant galaxy. Read more
Figure 1. Carrier multiplication Researchers from FOM, the University of Amsterdam, the Delft University of Technology and the University of the Algarve have discovered that when light hits germanium nanocrystals, the crystals produce 'bonus electrons'. These additional electrons could increase the yield of solar cells and improve the sensitivity of photodetectors. The researchers published their work in Light: Science & Applications on 13 February 2015. Read more
