ERC grant for Kavli-Delft/QN PI Sander Otte

[19-02-2016]

Sander Otte has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for his research proposal 'Spin correlations by atomic design' (SPINCAD). In this project, Otte will investigate collective dynamics in artificially designed atomic spin structures. The excitations of such spin lattices, such as spinons or magnons, can be viewed as quantum-mechanical quasiparticles that propagate at tremendous speeds. The implementation of atomically crafted detectors may help to visualise the motion of these elementary particles with atomic local precision.

The ERC Grant represents a sum of 1.45 million euro’s, to be spent in the coming five years. A large part of this budget will be used to employ PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. For more information, visit the Otte Lab webpage.
