The Eindhoven University of Technology is a university of technology located in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Its motto is Mens agitat molem . The university was the second of its kind in the Netherlands, only Delft University of Technology existed previously. Until mid-1980 it was known as the Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven . In 2011 QS World University Rankings placed Eindhoven at 146th internationally, but 61st globally for Engineering & IT. Furthermore, in 2011 Academic Ranking of World Universities rankings, TU/e was placed at the 52-75 bucket internationally in Engineering/Technology and Computer Science category and at 34th place internationally in the field of Computer Science. In 2003 a European Commission report ranked TU/e at third place among all European research universities , thus making it the highest ranked Technical University in Europe. Wikipedia.

A vibration isolator is provided comprising a base structure, a load structure, a displacement structure and at least one vertical air gap formed by opposing and substantially parallel walls of the base structure and the load structure. The opposing walls being at least partly covered by respective arrays of permanent magnets, neighboring magnets in the arrays having alternating magnetization directions, an arrangement of the permanent magnets in the arrays being such that a gravitational force on the load structure is substantially compensated by a net magnetic force of the base structure on the load structure. The displacement structure relatively displaces arrays of permanent magnets of the opposing walls with respect to each along the air gap for adjusting a load capacity of the vibration isolator.

Growth of GaP and III-V GaP alloys in the wurtzite crystal structure by vapor phase epitaxy (VPE) is provided. Such material has a direct band gap and is therefore much more useful for optoelectronic devices than conventional GaP and GaP alloys having the zincblende crystal structure and having an indirect band gap.
