Getting additional funding is supposed to be important criterion in evaluating the performance of Lendület (Momentum) groups. Therefore, I'm pleased to report that the TÁMOP-4.2.2.D-15/1/KONV-2015-0024 project „ELITeam” was selected to be supported. The project title is: "ELI Intézet létrehozása a Szegedi Tudományegyetemen: interdiszciplináris kutatások megalapozása a lézerek és alkalmazásai területén" ("Establishing an ELI Institute at the University of Szeged: foundations of interdisciplinary research in the field of lasers and their applications"). This will run until 30th October 2015. I am heading subproject 4.5 with a budget of 8 million HUF. Our topic is the usage of high power density methods for modifying the surface of core-shell nanoparticles.
