KIC grant awarded to improve imaging of semiconductor chips
The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded a grant to research on more efficient production of even smaller computer chips in the KIC call ‘Demand-driven Partnerships for Consortia’. Researchers from Delft University of Technology and ARCNL are collaborating with ASML in order to inspect computer chips more precisely and faster with help of electrons. The Knowledge and Innovation Covenant (KIC) research programme stands for pioneering innovative solutions with social and economic impact. NWO funds the research with almost 2 million euros, ASML contributes with over 2.3 million co-funding.

Shining light on densely interwoven nerve fibres inside the brain
Disentangling the complex nerve fibre network of the brain is becoming easily accessible with scattered light imaging (SLI): researchers in Delft, Jülich (Germany) and Stanford (USA) successfully combined light and X-ray scattering with MRI to discern nerve fibre trajectories, also in regions with highly entangled fibres. SLI revealed the trajectories at highest detail, while being significantly faster and cheaper than X-ray and MRI techniques. Such detailed mapping is essential for a better understanding of how nerve fibres are wired inside the brain.

Mark Vermeulen joined ImPhys as a MSc student
Mark Vermeulen's Master end project consists of looking at T2Rho relaxation mapping MRI. The hope is that this will eventually reduce the need for contrast agents in cardiac MRI. He is conducting his project in the MARS Lab under supervision of Chiara Coletti and Sebastian Weingärtner.

Enya Berrevoets joined ImPhys as PhD student
Enya Berrevoets recently started her PhD at the computational imaging group, where she will be supervised by Sjoerd Stallinga and Bernd Rieger. Her research will take place within the IMAGINE! (Innovative Microscopy and Guidance of cells In their Native Environment) consortium and will be focused on computational imaging solutions for visualising cells and subcellular structures in 3D and at high resolution.

From ‘going it alone’ to smoothly cooperating microscopy field
In April 2023, Minister of Education, Culture and Science Robbert Dijkgraaf officially opened the renovated Electron Microscopy Centre (EMC) in Utrecht. In what used to be a somewhat disjointed field of science, the EMC provides a hub where researchers from all the relevant disciplines have access to the expensive equipment for electron microscopy. This significant development is the result of the intensive efforts of the Perspectief consortium Microscopy Valley, with Delft University of Technology as one of the parties.

The physics of Spiderman
How do we get pupils interested in science, and especially physics? One way is to develop lessons that are relevant to them. Freek Pols published an article for physics teachers in which the physics of Spiderman is investigated.
