QN successfully attracts young scientific talent

This week, four Marie Curie Fellowships were awarded to young international scientists to pursue the next step in their burgeoning career at the QN department of the Delft Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology.

The highly competitive Marie Curie Fellowship program rewards matches in which young scientific top talent has linked up with excellent centres of research where they can grow as independent scientists.

The topics that the new research fellows will investigate span the entire scope of the department ranging from theory to experiment and from nanophotonics to nanoelectronics. The fact that two of the Fellowships were awarded for research projects in the group of tenure trackers underscores QN’s role as a breeding ground for talent.

Quantum Nanoscience

Welcome to the homepage of the department Of Quantum Nanoscience. Our department studies quantum phenomena in a wide variety of nanometer scale devices and materials, exploring new physics and novel applications of quantum effects. The department consists of a number of active scientists working on both experimental and theoretical aspects of Quantum Nanoscience. The research is supported by state-of-the-art facilities, in particular the cleanroom facility Kavli Nanolab Delft for the fabrication and inspection of functional nanostructures.

Quantum Nanosicence is part of the university's successful Kavli Institute of Nanoscience established by the US-based Kavli foundation and part of the renowned Casimir Research School, a joint graduate school of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft and the Leiden Institute of Physics.
