Our research has been showcased by the Home of Innovation initiative at TU Delft, which highlights innovative projects across all the university, see here for more details.
Thanks to Erwin Suvaal from CVIII ontwerpers for the nice cartoon!
This Monday we welcome Sabrya van Heijst to our group. She will be carrying out her MSc research project with us.
The European Research Council has just announced that our lab has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant!!
Thanks to the support of this ERC grant, we will be able to study how the unique properties of layered materials (LMs), which are fully functional down a single atomic layer, can be further expanded and enriched by exploiting the one-dimensional geometry.
We welcome Maarten Bolhuis to our group as new MSc student!
The NWO and the Dutch minister of Science and Education have announced an investment of 17M€ for NEMI, the Netherlands Electron Microscopy Infrastructure.
Within NEMI, Delft will focuse on research in the field of material science for quantum technologies. Especifically , the Conesaboj Lab (Electron Nanoscopy of Quantum Materials) receives €900K to upgrade the Titan TEM microscope to carry out new material research at the nanoscale.
