Four researchers from Natural Sciences receive NERD-grants
The purpose of the NERD programme is to support original basic research within the natural and technical sciences. The four researchers receive a total of DKK 47,7 mio.
The purpose of the NERD programme is to support original basic research within the natural and technical sciences, including but not limited to physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science. The application must describe how the outcome of the project may have potential future applications in the health sciences, life sciences or sustainability.
The NERD projects are very diverse, and the common thread is that all the grant recipients are both creative and ambitious.
Those requirements are met by four researchers at the Faculty of Natural Sciences.
- Professor Niels Chr. Nielsen, Department of Chemistry, receive DKK 10.000.000 for the project Pulsed DNP and EPR spectroscopy for biological applications – the next breakthrough in magnetic resonance.
- Associate professor Aurelien Dantan, Department of Physics and Astronomy, receive DKK13.969.517 for the project Nanostrings on nanodrums: an optomechanical orchestra for gas sensing and quantum optomechanics.
- Associate professor Jan Arlt, Department of Physics and Astronomy, receive DKK 13.737.747 for the project Fundamentals of Neutral Atom Quantum Simulators.
- Associate professor Tobias Weidner, Department of Chemistry, receive DKK 10.000.000 for the project Protein Structure at Nano-Surfaces – ProSurf
