MEMS made Electron Emission Membranes
ID: 320764
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-01-31
We propose a radically new and generic type of detector for photons, electrons and energetic charged particles: a stacked set of curved miniature dynodes in vacuum, created through MicroMechanical Electronic Systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques on top of a state-of-the-art C...

Past hurricane activity reconstructed using cave deposits: Have humans increased storm risk?
ID: 240167
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
The proposed research would utilise various geochemical proxies (oxygen, carbon, and trace elements) in cave calcite deposits (stalagmites) to develop extraordinarily high-resolution North Atlantic hurricane activity records for the past five hundred years, extending existing...

Physics Beyond the Standard Model at the LHC and with Atom Interferometers
ID: 228169
Start date: 2009-05-01, End date: 2014-04-30
Elementary particle physics is entering a spectacular new era in which experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN will soon start probing some of the deepest questions in physics, such as: Why is gravity so weak? Do elementary particles have substructure? What is ...

Quantum fields and knot homologies
[PROJECT] FIELDS-KNOTS - Quantum fields and knot homologies
ID: 335739
Start date: 2013-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
This project is concerned with fundamental problems arising at the interface of quantum field theory, knot theory, and the theory of random matrices. The main aim of the project is to understand two of the most profound phenomena in physics and mathematics, namely quantizatio...

Brain Microcirculation : Numerical simulation for inter-species translation with applications in human health
ID: 615102
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2019-05-31
The cerebral microvascular system is essential to a large variety of physiological processes in the brain, including blood delivery and blood flow regulation as a function of neuronal activity (neuro-vascular coupling). It plays a major role in the associated mechanisms leadi...

Magnetic sensing by molecules, birds, and devices
ID: 340451
Start date: 2013-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
The sensory mechanisms that allow birds to perceive the direction of the Earth’s magnetic field for the purpose of navigation are only now beginning to be understood. One of the two leading hypotheses is founded on magnetically sensitive photochemical reactions in the retina....

The calm before the storm: Pre-stellar cores as Astrophysical Laboratories
ID: 320620
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
"Stars like our Sun and planets like our Earth form in dense regions within interstellar molecular clouds, called pre-stellar cores (PSCs). PSCs provide the initial conditions in the process of star and planet formation, but large uncertainties exist concerning basic astrophy...

Efficient Resource Constrained Cryptography
ID: 615074
Start date: 2014-11-01, End date: 2019-10-31
"Traditionally, cryptographic protocols were run on servers or personal computers which have large and easily scalable computational resources. For these applications there exist a large variety of well-established cryptographic systems. Right now, we are in the midst of the ...
