Vici grant for Gary Steele

[21-03-2022]

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded two TU Delft researchers a Vici grant of up to 1.5 million euros. This will enable them to develop an innovative line of research and further expand their own research group for a period of five years. Vici is one of the largest personal scientific grants in the Netherlands and is aimed at advanced researchers.

Quantum gets heavy
Prof. Dr. Gary Steele, AS/QN
Combining quantum mechanics and gravity is a fundamental challenge in physics, which has been experimentally inaccessible to date. In this project, we will use superconducting electromechanics to create large quantum superpositions with unprecedented mass, providing a unique experimental test of quantum mechanics under the influence of general relativity.
