Behind the Scenes at AMOLF & ARCNL
The developments in the field of nanotechnology and new materials are going fast. New insights for several applications are gained often. We like to give you a sneak peek into this extraordinary world that will change our lives and the future in many ways!
We would like to invite you to the Behind the Scenes tour on Thursday April 6, completely dedicated to the new developments in the fields of new materials and nanotechnology. A unique opportunity to take a look behind the scenes at two internationally renowned research institutions in the Amsterdam Science Park.
This edition is organized by AMOLF (national research institute for the physics of functional complex matter) and ARCNL (Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography), where the researchers will guide you through their labs.
At AMOLF, three researchers will show us:
- how they build microscale structures using mineralization processes;
- how the interaction between living cells and their environment is being studied with microscopy;
- why the research of hybrid solar cells leads to cheaper and more efficient solar cells.
At ARCNL, two labs will be visited. The Nanophotochemistry lab focuses on the question: what happens in materials immediately after the absorption of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light? In the Atomic Plasma Processes lab you will learn how EUV light is actually made and what challenges it entails.
