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...

In deze scriptie wordt een onderwijskundig ontwerponderzoek gepresenteerd naar ontwerponderwijs op middelbare scholen, in het bijzonder naar ontwerponderwijs in scheikundelessen. Ontwerpen leent zich namelijk goed als betekenisvolle context voor het aanleren en verdiepen van vakconcepten door leerlingen. Gedurende ontwerponderwijs bedenken,...

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...

The nuclear reactors currently in operation utilise only a small fraction of the available natural uranium. By continuing in this track, known resources will be depleted too soon. Furthermore, Light Water Reactors (LWR) need to be shut down periodically so that refueling can take place. On top of that, their spent fuel must be safely stored for...

One of the promising platforms for creating Majorana bound states is a hybrid nanostructure consisting of a semiconducting nanowire covered by a superconductor.Weanalyze the previously disregarded role of electrostatic interaction in these devices. Our main result is that Coulomb interaction causes the chemical potential to respond to an applied...

Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccine is a safe and effective vaccine that can prevent meningitis and pneumonia caused by Hib disease. Hib vaccine is recommended for all children under 5 years. Despite the availability of safe and effective Hib vaccines since early 1987, Gambia was the only low-income country that had introduced...

To employ the full potential of electrochemical (ec) synthesis to grow metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) in more complex organizations at the mesoscale, it is vital to understand the underlying crystallization reaction pathway. For the MOF most typically grown electrochemically, CuBTC, we systematically investigated the role of oxygen species in...

Acyltransferase from Mycobacterium smegmatis (MsAcT) immobilised in continuous-flow microchannel (30-50 ?m dia.) reactors with hierarchical pore structure (4 cm3/g total pore volume) enabled quantitative, full and rapid transesterification of neopentylglycol with ethyl acetate in a biphasic 50/50 % system in less than one minute. MsAcT was...

Majorana fermions are exotic elementary particles predicted in 1937 by Ettore Majorana. Although heavily searched for, they have never been found in nature up to date. In the past decades, with the progress in theory, theoretical physicists predicted that Majorana fermions might emerge in certain exotic classes of condensed matter systems, where...

This thesis includes two research directions both aim to discover a building block for topological quantum computing. First, in Chapter 3, a novel setup is designed, built, and tested, that can electrostatically gate a material without endangering the materials pristine quality. The setup was designed with the goal to reveal non-Abelian...

This thesis revolves around exploiting the specificity of DNA interactions to guide the assembly of micro-colloids into higher order structures. The concept of DNA mediated interactions between micro-colloids is a field of study that has ramified from the field on DNA guided self-assembly of nano-colloids. Despite the great potential that the...
