Professor Jeppe Dyre, originator of the concept “Roskilde-simple” and from 2005 to 2015 the director of the DNRF Centre for Viscous Fluid Dynamics (Glass and Time), is still publishing results from research carried out during the DNRF grant period.
The paper Toward broadband mechanical spectroscopy, published in PNAS on August 1, 2017, is an example of the continuing off-shoots from the DNRF grant. The paper is a result of more than 10 years of cooperation between the center and a leading research group at MIT. The collaboration was established when center member and Associate Professor Tina Hecksher wrote her master’s thesis there, and then later continued the work in her DNRF-funded Ph.D. program. The PNAS paper builds on the results from a total of four Ph.D. theses about the development of new measuring techniques, three of which were carried out at MIT.
In the spring of 2017, Dyre received a grant of 40 million DKK from the Villum Foundation to further develop his fundamental research on “Roskilde-simples.”
