We model the charge, spin, and heat currents in ferromagnetic metal?normal metal?normal metal trilayer structures in the two current model, taking into account bulk and interface thermoelectric properties as well as Joule heating. The results include the temperature distribution as well as resistance-current curves that reproduce the observed...

We present characterizations of few-layer titanium trisulfide (TiS3) flakes which, due to their reduced in-plane structural symmetry, display strong anisotropy in their electrical and optical properties. Exfoliated few-layer flakes show marked anisotropy of their in-plane mobilities reaching ratios as high as 7.6 at low temperatures. Based on...

Background: Pleurotus ostreatus is the second edible mushroom worldwide, and a model fungus for delignification applications, with the advantage of growing on woody and nonwoody feedstocks. Its sequenced genome is available, and this gave us the opportunity to perform proteomic studies to identify the enzymes overproduced in lignocellulose...

The bacterial community structure of 10 different wastewater treatment systems and their influents has been investigated through pyrosequencing, yielding a total of 283486 reads. These bioreactors had different technological configurations: conventional activated sludge (CAS) systems and very highly loaded A-stage systems. A-stage processes are...

Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an important industrial cell factory and an attractive experimental model for evaluating novel metabolic engineering strategies. Many current and potential products of this yeast require acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl-CoA) as a precursor and pathways towards these products are generally expressed in its cytosol. The native...

Photoinduced charge transfer in organic materials is a fundamental process in various biological and technological areas. Donor-bridge-acceptor (DBA) molecules are used as model systems in numerous theoretical and experimental work to systematically study and unravel the underlying mechanisms of charge transfer. Despite the respectable successes...

This thesis reports on advanced characterizations of giant magnetocaloric materials that show a first order magnetic phase transition (FOMT). The results are of great interest not only for the design of new magnetic refrigerants, but also for a better understanding of the FOMT. This thesis paves the way for further developments and understanding...

Kuijpers, N.G.A. (author)
In the past few decades, concerns on climate change have contributed to the development of biotechnological alternatives for petrochemical processes. In order to make these processes economically competitive, there has been an intensive search for improved, more efficient production organisms. In the past decade, genetic engineering of...

Quantitative experiments with the ability to systematically probe the system under investigation are a key element to gain insight and understanding. We present a novel and simple technique enabling the maintenance and controlled perturbation of experimental conditions of microorganisms from bacteria to nematodes. Polyacrylamide-based devices...

This paper presents a mixed methods study in which 77 students and 3 teachers took part, that investigated the practice of Learning by Design (LBD). The study is part of a series of studies, funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, that aims to improve student learning, teaching skills and teacher training. LBD uses the...

The Sun is the main source of renewable energy on Earth. Our planet receives about 174 PW of solar power. At the same time, global energy consumption from all energy sources is orders of magnitude lower and is equal to approximately 16 TW. Clearly, solar energy has a tremendous potential, as well as numerous advantages over conventional sources...

The research strategy followed in this work was inspired by natural photosynthesis that, for simplicity, can be divided into three principal steps: (i) efficient light absorption at wavelengths abundant in the solar light; (ii) long-lived charge separation achieved by funnelling of the photogenerated electrons away from the light-absorbing...

Scattering is the process in which some form of radiation is deviated from its trajectory by a localized non-uniformity it encounters. These non-uniformities, called objects, can be of different material and geometry which determines among many things, mainly, the amount and direction of the scattered radiation. Scatterometry is the branch of...

We report the synthesis and excited-state dynamics of a series of five bichromophoric light-harvesting antenna systems, which are capable of efficient harvesting of solar energy in the spectral range of 350–580 nm. These antenna systems have been synthesized in a modular fashion by the covalent attachment of blue light absorbing naphthalene...

We study the rate of quantum phase slips in an ultranarrow superconducting nanowire exposed to weak electromagnetic radiations. The superconductor is in the dirty limit close to the superconducting-insulating transition, where fluxoids move in strong dissipation. We use a semiclassical approach and show that external radiation stimulates a...

Although ‘models’ play a significant role in engineering activities, not much has yet been developed to enhance the technological literacy of students in this regard. This contribution intends to help fill this gap and deliver a comprehensive account as to the nature and various properties of these engineering tools. It begins by inspecting two...

Electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 is one possibility to solve the electrical energy storage problem and decrease the amount of CO2. Copper is the only metal that has been reported to produce hydrocarbons in the electrochemical CO2 reduction at ambient pressure and temperature. External parameters (potential, temperature and electrolyte), copper...
