    Physics With Industry
    from 17 Oct 2011 through 21 Oct 2011


Description and aim


A group of ca. fifty physicists (junior and senior scientists from the Netherlands and abroad) come together to tackle industrial problems. After a thorough presentation of the problems by the companies, the physicists choose one of the five problems and devote the entire week at dissecting, modelling, analysing and discussing this problem within their group and with the industrial representative. By Friday the groups present their solution to the companies.

This successful format is based on the 'International Study Group Mathematics with Industry'. In 2010 the first Physics with Industry workshop was organized.


Scientific Topics: The aims of this workshop are to work collaboratively with physicists of different backgrounds on urgent industrial problems to come up with creative solutions, and to acquaint (young) physicists with industrial R&D. Next to the scientific outcome of the workshop, we expect that researchers may establish many new contacts or future job perspectives.

The scientific programme committee has selected these five problems:

-       Nano4Imaging - MRI imaging of instruments - design of markers in relation to artefact size

-       Unilever - Structuring with anisotropic colloids

-       FEI Company - Field of inserted charges during Electron Microscopy of non-conducting samples

-       Avery Dennison - Self adhesives to stick on moist and icy substrates

-       OcÚ - Sticky bubbles
