Program in English


Language: English
Target group: adults
Time: 14.15 - 14.45 hrs.
Room: 6


When molecules from a gas hit a surface, they can either bounce or break. The aim of our research is to model and predict the outcome of these collisions. In this talk, I will present an overview of how and why we do this.

Language: Engels
Target group: adults
Time:  12.00 - 12.30 hrs
Room: 6

This lecture will try to explain the basic principles of NMR spectroscopy. Atoms contain a nucleus and observing the nucleus is the aim of this technique. I will try to explain how utilizing radiowaves and magnets enables us to observe the atomic nucleus and get information about its motion in space.

In this tour, you will see the coolest, biggest electron microscopes in the Netherlands! What’s even cooler? They are produced in Eindhoven!
Do you want to know how we study tiny microbes (bacteria, viruses, etc.)?  And how this helps develop drugs and vaccines? Or simply helps advance a better understanding of life?
Can you guess how much data we produce in a day or what the size is of samples we look at?
Come along to NeCEN, the Dutch Centre for Electron Nanoscopy. We’ll show you how small the samples are and how big the microscopes. We’ll even explain why and maybe you’ll get to press a few buttons and wear 3D glasses.
