ERC Consolidator grant for Rembert Duine

Rembert Duine (Institute for Theoretical Physics, UU; part-time professor, TU/e) has been awarded a Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council of over 1,5 million euro in December 2016. The grant concerns in part magnetic insulators, materials that do not conduct electricity. Surprisingly, it was recently shown that these materials are able to transport signals and information. This project develops the models for understanding these new phenomena, with the ultimate goal of making signal transmission without energy loss possible at room temperature. Previously, Duine was awarded an NWO-VIDI grant and an ERC Starting Grant.
