Ewold Verhagen

is an 31-year-old Dutch physicist with merits in optomechanics, a recently emerged brusting field exploiting the coupling of laser light and high-quality mechanical resonators. He’s visited our department today to check the opportunities.

Ewold looks yonger than he is till he starts talkinig: then you recognize he’s actually a mature scientist deeply devoted to his subject, and is ready to explain the importance of the subject for others. He’s got quite a number of prizes and awards: normally, this would corrupt a person of his age irreversibly. However, Ewold appeared to sucsessfully withstand the bait and is able to talk about with an ironic smile.

The talk was both clear and exciting. I was pleased to see a speaker who starts with Hamiltonians: he made clear that optics along with atomic/molecular physics still enjoyes an innocent harmomy between experiment and theory, a paradise long lost in the field of quantum transport. I wish him a full sucsess.
