Coverstory for Robert Moerland et al in "Nanoletters"
Fluorescence decay dynamics inside opaque, metal-coated nanocavities can be spatially resolved using excitation with a focused pulsed electron beam. The cover illustrates the launching of the electron pulses, their penetration of the metal coating, and their subsequent nanoscale excitation of embedded gain medium inside the cavity. As a consequence, the gain medium luminesces with a decay rate that depends strongly on the precise location inside and size of the cavity.

Michel van Eeten in de Volkskrant over close-access hack operatie
Niet eerder kreeg het publiek zo’n gedetailleerde inkijk in een cyberoperatie. Wat was de Russische militaire inlichtingendienst GROe precies van plan en waarom was het nodig om dit vanuit Den Haag te doen? En hoe sterk is het bewijs tegen de Russen? Onderzoekers hebben een maand of vijf geleden een kwetsbaarheid ontdekt in WPA-2, de meestgebruikte versleuteling voor draadloze netwerken. ‘We weten het niet, maar wellicht hebben ze wel geprobeerd hiermee binnen te komen,' zegt Michel van Eeten hoogleraar cybersecurity aan de TU Delft en lid van de Cyber Security Raad.

‘Architecture is not what architectural historians write about it’
The history of modern architecture is more than a list of exceptional buildings. We need to look at how buildings function, says PhD candidate Jorge Mejia Hernandez. If we concentrate on their theoretical significance, the history of architecture becomes a caricature.

Ballistic graphene Josephson junctions enter microwave circuits
Superconducting quantum microwave circuits can function as qubits, the building blocks of a future quantum computer. A critical component of these circuits, the Josephson junction, is typically made using aluminium oxide. Researchers in the Quantum Nanoscience department at the Delft University of Technology have now successfully incorporated a graphene Josephson junction into a superconducting microwave circuit. Their work provides new insight into the interaction of superconductivity and graphene and its possibilities as a material for quantum technologies.
