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

Figure 1. A simplified representation of the new technology The storage capacity of hard drives is increasing explosively, but the speed with which all that data can be written has reached its limits. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the FOM Foundation present a promising new technology which potentially allows data to be stored 1,000 times as fast in Nature Communications on 10 July. The technology, in which ultra-short laser pulses generate a 'spin current', also opens the way to future optical computer chips. Read more
