Three Semper Ardens grants to Science and Technology researchers
The researchers get about 43 million DKK in total to go into depth with antimatter, examine the ultimate optical control of the light, and to develop improved plastic recycling.
Three researchers from Science and Technology are among this year's recipients of Sempere Ardens grants from the Carlsberg Foundation. The Semper Ardens grants are awarded to visionary research projects aimed at interdisciplinary breakthroughs to secure Denmark's leading position in international top research and contribute to solving the world's major challenges.
The three researchers are:
- Professor Jeffrey S. Hangst, Department of Physics and Astronomy, who receives 20.1 million DKK to "The ALPHA-3 project". Read more about the ALPHA-3 project at the Carlsberg Foundation
- Professor Thomas Pohl, Department of Physics and Astronomy, who receives 15.2 million DKK to the project "Quantum control of light". Read more about the Quantum control of light project at the Carlsberg Foundation
- Professor Troels Skrydstrup, Department of Chemistry and iNANO, who receives 7.5 million DKK to the project "The science of cleaving strong chemical bonds". Read more about the The science of cleaving strong chemical bonds project at the Carlsberg Foundation
The project periods are up to five years.
