Prestigious Dutch Physics Award for Frank Koppens


Dr Frank Koppens received the Christiaan Huygens science prize for Physics. He was nominated for the award because of his ground-breaking research that made it possible to control the spin of a single electron in a nano structure. Koppens finished his PhD with honours at the Kavli Institute of Nanotechnology at TU Delft on 'Coherence and control of a single electron spin in a quantum dot'.

After his PhD he further specialized in Nanophotonics and Quantum Optics at Harvard University. He is currently Group Leader at ICFO/The Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona, working on, among other things, the optical properties of graphene.
