As of 1 March 2024, Professor Leo Kouwenhoven will be appointed University Professor at TU Delft QuTech, the quantum research institute founded by TU Delft and TNO. Professor Kouwenhoven has been a full professor at TU Delft since 1999. After working at Microsoft, where he teamed up with TU Delft researchers on the development of quantum computers based on Majorana particles, Leo Kouwenhoven has recently been supervising PhD projects at TU Delft in an independent research capacity. We are pleased to announce that Leo Kouwenhoven will continue his outstanding contribution to science at TU Delft.
On Thursday 23 November, the Architectural Recovery Team, an initiative from the TU Delft, presents the design for an affordable and earthquake-resistant house for those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey. Based on this design, a prototype will be built in a village in Turkey in spring 2024. After that, the design will be put into production to help Turkish residents who have so far failed to find a safe and affordable home.
With the ever-increasing interest in renewable energy, scientists are continuously searching for new technologies to store energy. CO2 electrolysis is a promising way to store energy whilst recycling carbon dioxide. By applying electricity, CO2 and water react and produce more complex molecules. A study published in Nature Communications lead by Hugo van Montfort at TU Delft has presented a new design of electrodes that improves the efficiency of CO2 electrolysis.
Delft University of Technology researchers are launching a study on a new way of working and innovations at Schiphol's baggage handling halls.
Five Dutch universities - led by TU Delft - will appoint fifty-one PhD students to carry out solution-oriented research for and with the African continent.
90% of everything around you is transported by cargo vessels. So it's not surprising that shipping is responsible for 3% of global C02 emissions. This needs to become more sustainable. That's why TU Delft is launching a new research programme on 31 October to explore the possibilities of wind-assisted propulsion for cargo vessels. The aim is to reduce fuel consumption by 30%.
A collaborative team of researchers led by prof. Cees Dekker at TU Delft, in partnership with international colleagues, introduces a pioneering breakthrough in the world of nanomotors - the DNA origami nanoturbine.
Extracting as much energy as cost-effectively as possible from each individual wind turbine epitomised the short-term approach of the past. But what we need for a climate-neutral and energy-independent Europe is a shift towards sustainable wind energy in the long term, taking into account all costs and aspects - including societal and environmental ones. This is what the wind farm control room of the future is all about.
Last year, scientists at TU Delft achieved a remarkable feat by using graphene to capture the sound of an individual bacterium. In order to improve these kind of 2D ultra-sensitive sensors, the nanomechanics of this material have to be studied in more detail. Farbod Alijani, associate professor at the faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Material Engineering, received an ERC Consolidator Grant for this project. His ultimate goal is to improve the mechanical performance of 2D material sensors and use them for rapid screening tests in drug development and personalized medicine.
Last night, probably between 21:00 and 22:00 CET, the nanosatellite Delfi-C3 reached the end of its life at the age of 15. The Delfi-C3, the first satellite built by students, burned up in the atmosphere. In 2006, the small satellite was built by scientists from TU Delft, along with a group of about 60 students. It was launched from India in 2008. Since then, it has orbited the Earth more than 85,000 times, traveling approximately 3.7 billion kilometers.
The production of cultured red blood cells (cRBCs) holds the promise of being a potentially unlimited source of cells that could meet the increasing demand for red blood cell transfusions. TU Delft and Sanquin have now developed an improved process for the production of these cRBC's. It also allows for greater control over the quality and safety of the cells compared to the current donor-dependent system. Additionally, cRBCs could be utilised for novel therapies in which cells serve as carriers of therapeutic molecules.
A material that doesn't just rival the strength of diamonds and graphene, but boasts a yield strength 10 times greater than Kevlar, renowned for its use in bulletproof vests.
Today marks a significant milestone as TU Delft officially joins EBRAINS, a state-of-the-art digital research infrastructure developed by the EU-funded Human Brain Project, which serves as a comprehensive hub for brain-related data and tools.
Quantum physicists at Delft University of Technology have shown that it's possible to control and manipulate spin waves on a chip using superconductors for the first time. These tiny waves in magnets may offer an alternative to electronics in the future, interesting for energy-efficient information technology or connecting pieces in a quantum computer, for example. The breakthrough, published in Science , primarily gives physicists new insight into the interaction between magnets and superconductors.
Co Verdaas was recently appointed as government commissioner for the National Delta Programme and will start his work as Delta Programme Commissioner at the beginning of December: 'It's a real honour to be able to contribute to the climate-proof future of our delta in my role as Delta Programme Commissioner. Water has shaped the Netherlands and will continue to do so.'
