Rubicon grant for Applied Sciences researcher

News - 05 October 2021 - Communication TNW

Maurice Krielaart (ImPhys) has been awarded a coveted Rubicon grant by NWO.

The Rubicon grant enables young, promising researchers to do research at a top institution abroad. For many scientists, experience in a foreign country is an important step in their career.

This is the AS researcher who received a Rubicon and the research he will be doing with it:

What kind of light does an electron emit?

Dr. ir. M.A.R. Krielaart (Maurice), Delft University of Technology
Researchers are investigating if the generation of light from a single electron behaves in a predictable and consistent manner. For this they pass fast electrons nearby surfaces, and carefully analyse the quantum mechanical properties of the resulting light.
