We would like to show you which great projects we can support thanks to donations from our alumni. We're going to do that in a series of videos of only one minute each:
Detecting viruses and sources of infection is a time-consuming process, often involving specialized equipment. Is there no easier way? The answer to that question, according to Professor Merkx’ research group, is “yes”. They are currently developing organic sensors that can detect these medical culprits using light. Sounds exciting? Please, take a minute and let researchers Eva and Harm explain how it works and how the world will benefit.
Imagine this: engines running on a very special kind of sustainable fuel: minuscule metal particles charged with solar energy. This may sound like science fiction, but thanks to the groundbreaking work of the Power & Flow Research Group, led by Prof. De Goey, this will become a reality soon.
In this short video, post-doctoral researcher Mohammadreza Baigmohammadi, explains the basics of this development. *
