Nanodevices for Quantum Optics
[PROJECT] NAQUOP - Nanodevices for Quantum Optics
ID: 307687
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-03-31
We propose developing a nanodevice toolbox for single photon quantum optics. A scalable scheme to generate indistinguishable single photons, an interface to couple single photon polarization to a single electron spin and high efficiency single photon detectors represent the c...

Controlling Non-Equilibrium in Steels
[PROJECT] NONEQ.STEEL - Controlling Non-Equilibrium in Steels
ID: 306292
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-03-31
Stronger and more ductile steels are increasingly demanded for advanced applications. Latest investigations show that nanostructured steels formed by non-equilibrium phases increasing strength, such as martensite and bainite, and enhancing strain hardening, such as austenite,...

Stomatocyte Nanomotors: Programmed Supramolecular Architectures for Autonomous Movement
ID: 307679
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2018-05-31
The main goal of this ERC proposal is to harness a completely new approach to constructing biocompatible nanomotors, using supramolecular assembly of amphiphilic block-copolymers for loading the engine and catalysis as the driving force for autonomous movement. Polymersomes a...

Photo-Engineered Helices in Chiral Liquid Crystals
ID: 307784
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Supramolecular helices are a striking expression of chirality which is found at every level of biological materials, from plant cell walls to bones. Helical biomaterials formed out of equilibrium display multiple length scales, adaptation of structure to function and responsi...

Transport at the microscopic interface
ID: 307342
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
The research objective is to study and model membrane separation processes at the microscopic scale. I propose to exploit microfluidic platforms that contain a certain membrane separation challenge to be studied; i.e. biofouling, overlimiting current, and concentration polari...

New proxies to quantify continental climate development during the Pliocene
ID: 306390
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Atmospheric CO2 concentrations have risen rapidly since pre-industrial times and our current climate is not yet in equilibrium with this; it will change. To obtain insight in the type and magnitude of this change and to validate climate models used to project these changes, w...

Hardwiring the ocean floor: the impact of microbial electrical circuitry on biogeochemical cycling in marine sediments
ID: 306933
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
Although it is well known that microbial cells can exhibit sophisticated cooperative behaviour, none of the recent advancements in geomicrobiology has been so perplexing as the proposal that microbial populations are capable of fast, electrical communication over centimetre s...

Supramolecular Chemistry in Medicine:Towards Complex Molecular Biomaterials that are Indistinguishable from Nature
ID: 308045
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-07-31
This ERC proposal aims to bridge the gap between supramolecular chemistry and regenerative medicine by defining a new area of ‘supramolecular medicine’ in which supramolecular chemistry will be used to solve medical and health problems. Understanding of tissues, cells, and th...

Light-activatable ruthenium-based anticancer prodrugs
ID: 307519
Start date: 2013-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
Chemotherapy is, after surgery, the second most efficient therapy against cancer. However, it has many side effects for cancer patients because anticancer drugs kill cancer cells but also healthy ones. My project aims at synthesizing new metal-containing compounds that 1) are...

Hunting for high performance energy storage in batteries
ID: 307161
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
One of the great challenges of this century is unquestionably energy storage. Storage is essential to make more efficient use of renewable energy sources and to enable electrical mobility. Recent developments have raised both hopes and fundamental challenges in the next gener...
