Figure 1. Single electron spin in silicon One of the challenges of building a future quantum computer is to develop qubits that are both scalable and robust. Researchers at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft and the University of Wisconsin have now demonstrated that a long-lived qubit can survive in silicon, the most widely used material in the modern semi-conductor industry. The research, which was partially funded by FOM, was published in Nature Nanotechnology on 10 August 2014. Read more
Lowlands University, 15 to 17 August 2014 This weekend the annual three-day pop festival Lowlands will be held near the Dutch village of Biddinghuizen. Since 2005 Lowlands University has been a part of the programme. Many renowned scientists have spoken at a festival podium for the first time here and have given their best ever lecture to thousands of curious Lowlands' visitors. This year inquisitive festival visitors can eat their heart out at lectures given, for example, by Nikhef director professor Frank Linde and professor Hester Bijl (Delft University of Technology).

Figure 1. Professor Stan Bentvelsen has been appointed as the new director of Nikhef Professor Stan Bentvelsen (University of Amsterdam/Nikhef) has been appointed as director of the National Institute for Subatomic Physics Nikhef with effect from 1 December 2014. He succeeds professor Frank Linde, whose second term as director will end at the end of this year. Bentvelsen (49) is currently professor at the University of Amsterdam and director of the Institute for High Energy Physics of the University of Amsterdam. He is also a member of FOM's Governing Board. In the run-up to and during the discovery of the Higgs particle he was responsible for the Dutch contribution to the ATLAS experiment in his capacity as programme leader. Bentvelsen will be employed by FOM, but will retain his professorship at the University of Amsterdam. His appointment is for a period of five years with the possibility of a single reappointment for the same period. Read more
