Maarten is a Masters student in Applied Physics at the University of Twente. He is visiting the Bose-Einstein Laboratory at the University of Queensland and studying with Dr Tyler Neely. Maarten hopes to prove quantised conductance for the integer spin particules, the Bosons, something that has already been demonstrated in half-integer particles, Fermions, and is currently state-of-the-art technology for transistors in consumer products.
