Vidi grant for Toeno van der Sar


The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded four TU Delft researchers a Vidi grant worth 800,000 euros. The grant enables them to develop their own innovative line of research and set up their own research group in the coming five years.


Dr. T. (Toeno) van der Sar
How do electrons move through quantum materials?

Recently discovered materials with special quantum properties offer unprecedented opportunities for the development of new nano-electronics. How electrical current moves through these ‘quantum materials’ is at the heart of their functionality. This research will use a diamond sensor to locally image this current with nanometre resolution.

About VIDI
Vidi is aimed at experienced researchers who have carried out successful research for a number of years after obtaining their PhDs. Together with Veni and Vici, Vidi is part of the NWO Talent Programme. Researchers in the Talent Programme are free to submit their own subject for funding. NWO thus encourages curiosity-driven and innovative research. NWO selects researchers based on the quality of the researcher, the innovative character of the research, the expected scientific impact of the research proposal and the possibilities for knowledge use.
