What would a university be without teaching? Our group is involved in the bachelor programme “Physics and Astronomy” and the master programme “Experimental Physics“. There are also several places and projects for master- and bachelor-level students to do their research projects.

We are looking for experimentally interested Masters and/or Bachlor students want to do their thesis project on the topic of OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography, with PhD candidate Pegah Asgari). OCT is an microscopy techique that allows to visualize small, sub-nanometre changes in a sample by means of interference. The ulitmate goal is to visualize electrophysiologic Action Potentials in live cells noninvasively, using optical means alone.

The project will involve learning how to operate the OCT system, but depending on the qualifications and interests of the student, it can be tailored towards a more experimentally oriented work, or focus more on theoretical aspects such as data and noise analysis — the latter being of utmost importance for an optical technique with picometre sensitivity!

If you are intested and want to know more, please contact Gerhard Blab!

We are currently offering a masters research project for students of Experimental Physics, or for preference, Nanomaterials Science in our lab (Molecular Biophysics). The research concerns energy transfer and quenching effects observed in fiducial markers for CLEM* and fluorescent labels used in super-resolution microscopy. You will find the full project description and contact details after the break.

It is October, so scarcely a month after we have welcomed this year’s student into our master’s programmes, and it is already time to welcome visitors interested in becoming next year’s students. I hope to see you this afternoon at the Open Day in the Koningsberger Building on the Uithof!

Just as the academic year is starting today, September 5, it is my pleasure to welcome all new Master’s students of the programme “Experimental Physics”.  (read more…)

Looking for the best place to study physics?(*) Look no further — today, all the Exact (Bèta) Sciences will tell you why Utrecht is the place to come to when it comes to your science master studies! The master evening starts at 5pm in the Hijmans van den Berghgebouw on the Uithof (close to the UMC hospital).
