On this page you will find the latest news of our imo-imomec researchers.
It must be hard to take over a captain’s duties who never leaves his ship. And that captain is Prof. Dr. Dirk Vanderzande, who for many years has managed to steer the research institute imo-imomec through calm waters and perhaps even turbulent storms. Among other things, in 1988 he was present at the inauguration of the first computer purchased at the research institute. So this man has seen a lot of tides.
Researchers at imo-imomec (imec/UHasselt), within the EnergyVille collaboration, have succeeded in integrating organic building blocks into perovskite solar cells, significantly improving both the thermal and moisture stability of the material.
Interesting conversations with dr. Jorne Carolus, prof. dr. Michaël Daenen, prof. dr. Wim Deferme, and prof. dr. Wouter Marchal. Moderated by Ronald Scheer.
Professor Bart Vermang (UHasselt/imec/EnergyVille) receives the prestigious prize 'Laureate in the Class of Technical Sciences' from the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Sciences and Arts (KVAB). "This prize is a real team achievement." says Bart Vermang.
On 17 September, Hasselt University's Science Tower was officially opened by Flemish Minister Wouter Beke, Limburg Commissioner Tom Vandeput, president of LSM, and Rector Bernard Vanheusden. The Science Tower is the new showpiece for the Science Faculty.
ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet has installed the diamond-based quantum magnetometer of the UHasselt students in the space station ISS. A few hours later the UHasselt students received the first data about the magnetic field around the Earth.
August 29th, a historic day for Hasselt University. Aboard the SpaceX-CRS23, the unique diamond quantum magnetometer of the UHasselt student team OSCAR-QUBE flies to the space station ISS to map the magnetic field around the Earth.
Researchers from Hasselt University and imec are building a 13-metre-long test rig of noise barriers with integrated solar cells as part of the EnergyVille collaboration. For a year, they will monitor the energy yield and stability of the panels.
