TU Delft and KNMI study the influence of forest fires on clouds and climate from Ascension Island

25 August 2016

The influence of forest fires on cloud formation and climate change. In short, this is what an international team of scientists will monitor from Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. Researcher Martin de Graaf of TU Delft and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) will be studying cloud formation there in September via lidar (radar with laser light).Continue


Development of SimSmartMobility simulation tool for innovative mobility solutions

12 August 2016

Ever more traffic information is becoming available and is increasingly used in the form of mobility services such as a parking app or a traffic speed advisory service. TNO, TU Delft and the Connecting Mobility programme (of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment) are to develop an open platform and simulation tool for Smart Mobility, called "SimSmartMobility". This will provide fast...Continue


Hydrogen racecar of the future ready for unveiling

05 August 2016

After revealing the design on the 10th of March, TU Delft student team Forze has been working very hard to produce and realise this hydrogen supercar. Several months later, the Forze VII will now be presented for the very first time for public on Sunday 7th of August 2016 during the Gamma Racing Day. The official revelation will happen on 10.00am at the TT Circuit in Assen. During this...Continue


Researchers gain a better understanding of the transformation of steel

05 August 2016

Heating iron can alter its structure and is one of the methods for making various types of steel with different properties. That process is similar to the formation of frost flowers: one iron crystal structure transforms into another at a nucleus point, and the process expands further from that point. This type of nucleation in materials has the largest impact on their final properties, but is...Continue


Smallest hard disk to date writes information atom by atom

18 July 2016

Every day, modern society creates more than a billion gigabytes of new data. To store all this data, it is increasingly important that each single bit occupies as little space as possible. A team of scientists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University managed to bring this reduction to the ultimate limit: they built a memory of 1 kilobyte (8,000 bits), where each bit is...Continue


Eight Veni grants for promising TU Delft researchers

18 July 2016

Eight researchers who have recently obtained their PhD have been awarded a Veni grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The grants will enable them to develop ideas and conduct research at TU Delft over a period of three years.Continue


Simple solution makes hydrogen production through solar water splitting more efficient and cheaper

13 July 2016

Researchers from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), in collaboration with colleagues from the École Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne (EPFL), have found a simple yet very effective solution to greatly increase the efficiency and stability of hydrogen production through solar-driven water splitting. By separating the positive and the negative electrodes using a bipolar membrane, they were...Continue
