Frank de Groot has become professor of Synchroton and Theoretical Spectroscopy of Catalytic Nanomaterials in the Department of Chemistry at Utrecht University. In 2006, he received the NWO-CW VICI Grant. His work reflects a concern with the theoretical and the experimental aspects of X-ray spectroscopy, inlcuding both fundamental studies and applications. His current interest is in the use of X-ray spectroscopies for the study of the electronic and magnetic structure of condensed matter, in particular for transition metal oxides, (magnetic) nanoparticles and heterogeneous catalysts under working conditions.
