Ole Sigmund, a researcher at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) has won one of the sought-after European Young Investigator Awards (EURYI) with a prize of DKK 7.5 million (USD 1.2 million). The research councils of the 15 'old' EU countries received 770 applications for the awards. Denmark participated with nine projects and in total 25 EURYI scholarships were handed out yesterday.

 

With his project, synthesis and topology optimisation of optomechanical systems, Ole Sigmund hopes that it will be possible in the future to replace current optoelectronic components of several centimetres in size with photonic crystals of a few cubic millimetres.

 

The prize of DKK 7.5 million (USD 1.2 million) will be used to establish a research group, to purchase instruments and to participate in conferences over the next five years. The news is reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (the Engineer) online.
