NWO HTSM grant for Jeroen Kalkman
In the High Tech Systems and Materials program 2019 the project NanoRheoOCT has been granted to Dr. Jeroen Kalkman. This project is a collaboration between University Utrecht and a commercial partner. The researchers in this proposal develop a novel type of optical sensor based on optical coherence tomography to quantify the motion and flow of very small particles (macromolecules and nanoparticles).
They apply the developed technology to address fundamental research questions, e.g. in colloid science and rheology, and to improve quality control in process industry. More information can be found on the NWO website.
