Student projects

Students are very welcome in our group to participate in one of the ongoing research projects. We have a long-lasting tradition of hosting a large number of Applied Physics students in their Bachelor or Master program. These projects cover a broad range of possibilities in the field of new experiments related to the physics of (magnetic) nanostructures, designing or installing new high-end instruments, and/or contributing to the physics by developing theory, modelling, or using numerical approaches. Please contact one of the staff members to retrieve more information, e.g. on actual projects or how to get in touch with students now active at FNA. For a taste of what’s possible, have a look at some completed projects.

Following the Applied Physics curriculum, we are internally hosting Bachelor-end-project (BEP) students (Bachelor TN) and students doing their Master end projects (Master AP). In all cases, we are aiming for high-quality monitoring and supervision of our students, which e.g. includes a short introductory presentation in the start-up period of the traineeship, the involvement of two FNA supervisors for each individual student, and the use of a unique evaluation procedure.

Regarding traineeships outside of TU/e (part of the Master AP), we send our students to the best and most exciting places around our globe, which, during the last couple of years, e.g. include:

  • University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
  • University of Leeds, United Kingdom
  • IBM Research, San Jose, USA
  • Stanford University, Palo Alto, USA
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston, USA
  • Center for Magnetic Recording Research, San Diego, USA
  • A*STAR Research, Singapore
  • Indian Institute of Science, Bangaloore, India
  • Tsinghua University, Bejing, China
  • Seoul National University, South Korea
