NFFA-Europe Research Infrastructure grant awarded to Dr. Sebastian Knauer


Congratulation to Dr. Sebastian Knauer for the award of a NFFA-Europe Research Infrastructure grant. The fabrication grant will allow Dr. Knauer, as principal investigator, together with a student, David Schmoll, to build the next generation of all integrated universal Yttrium-Iron-Garnet circuits in the project UNI-YIG.

NFFA-EU implemented the first open-access research infrastructure as a platform supporting comprehensive projects for multidisciplinary research at the nanoscale extending form synthesis to nanocharacterisation to theory and numerical simulation. NFFA is a pan-European consortium of 22 international partners with a core of 13 co-located nanofoundaries and LSFs.

This grant opens the access to the unique methods and technologies NFFA-EU has to offer. Added to Dr. Knauer’s current MSCA fellowship, it will surely help his contribution to the fast-developing field of integrated and hybrid opto-magnonic quantum systems.
