On Thursday 29th of October, YER held a Master Class at its new office location in Eindhoven Flight Forum. The guest speaker was Prof.dr.ir. Pieter Kruit, a professor of Physics at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. The class was about Nanolithography and the Dutch companies that master this technique. The presentation was divided into 3 parts, and was mainly directed to an audience with non-technical background. At last, Pieter Kruit also introduced his own company, which he founded with other co-workers and which in involved in the design and production of electron-beam, mask-less, nanolithography machines. The presentation lasted for about 1 hour and a half, and it included very interesting and brainstorming question sessions in between the presentations.
After the presentation, a standing buffet and drinks followed up. We went there with Peter van Kollenburg and 6 other students, catching the opportunity to mingle and get to know a number of experts and professionals who work with nanolithography and were invited by YER. Everyone was very friendly and it was easy to open up a conversation, or maybe the drinks made it easier. We got new contacts, met new people and even played a couple of games in foosball. All in all it was a great night and hoping for many more to come.
