UvA physicists succesful in 2016 call for FOM ‘Vrije Programma’s’

Universiteit Ams

Strange metals Strange metals are called strange because their behaviour deviates from the standard properties of metals. Their electrical resistance increases linearly with temperature until the melting point. Together with colleagues from Leiden University, Utrecht University and the University of Amsterdam, principal investigator Prof. Nigel Hussey (Radboud University) wants to investigate whether strange metals provide opportunities for quantum entanglement over longer distances based on holographic principles. The programme connects leadi... Read More »

Short films introduce a particular part of history, and astrophysicists, geologists, biologists, historians an... Read More »

Surprising finding under the hood of molecular motors

Universiteit Ams

Scientists of the Molecular Photonics research group at the University of Amsterdam's Van 't Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences have discovered surprising details regarding the operation mechanism of light-driven molecular motors. Led by Wybren Jan Buma and Sander Woutersen they have discovered a new electronic 'dark state' that results in a small but important stutter in these molecular motors. The findings enable a more efficient design of molecular motors. The results are published in this week's edition of Journal of Physical Chemistr... Read More »
