Physicsworld.com has published an article titled Why an ultracold gas is like a wireless network. It discusses the relation between wireless networks and Rydberg gases, and was based on our research discussed in Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 163001. I was interviewed and helped with the piece. The article also discusses a few potential future directions for our research, which we have been thinking about.
We have submitted Wireless network control of interacting Rydberg atoms, which is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Rick van Bijnen, Edgar Vredenbregt and Servaas Kokkelmans. You can find a preprint of the article on arXiv. Ultimately, the article appeared in Physical Review Letters as Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 163001.
Today, I received a Certificate of nomination for the TU/e Final Project Award 2013, issued by the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science, Eindhoven University of Technology.
The Netherlands Society for Statistics and Operations Research has awarded me the VvS+OR Master’s Thesis Award. In recognition of an outstanding graduation performance, the VvS+OR Master’s Thesis Award is bestowed each year to a thesis in statistics or operations research.
The Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen has awarded me the ASML Graduation Award for Mathematics. It is one of several awards for students in exact sciences, and these awards are called the Jong Talent Prijzen. At the ceremony, I also presented my work to a broad audience.
Today, I presented several results of my master’s project. After the presentation, I had to defend my thesis titled Interacting particles in wireless networks and Rydberg gasses. This finished my graduation project, both for the mathematics and physics department.
