Stefani, D. (author)
This dissertation concerns transport measurements in single-molecule junctions using the mechanically controlled break junction (MCBJ) technique. It describes various aspects that play a role in charge transport through single molecules, in order to develop the necessary knowledge to ultimately develop electronic devices based on intrinsic...

The development and deployment of technologies depend upon collaborations concurrently relying on proximity between partners. By employing publication data of German nanotechnology, we augment former findings on the relationship between proximity and collaboration in three ways. First, we shed light on how the various forms of proximity...

In this thesis, the microwave detection of mechanically compliant objects is investigated. This starts with a system of a suspended metal drum capacitively coupled to a high impedance microstrip resonator. The mechanical non-linear dissipation of the drums is studied. Next, a suspended nanowire coupled to a CPW resonator is studied. With an...

Though the commercialisation of nanotechnology began only 30 years ago, it has developed into one of the fastest growing industries in terms of research and design, with an unlimited amount of possibilities that will transform industries from how we know them today. The advancement of nanotechnology relies on the actual production, control...

Safe-by-design (SbD) aims at addressing safety issues already during the R&D and design phases of new technologies. SbD has increasingly become popular in the last few years for addressing the risks of emerging technologies like nanotechnology and synthetic biology. We ask to what extent SbD approaches can deal with uncertainty, in...

Research has been done on the gender differences in the evaluation of nanotechnology by Dutch TU Delft students. The research was executed using a questionnaire which was designed to examine if there are gender differences in the judgement of nanotechnology and if so, which variables play a significant role in this causal relations. Based on the...

Boekel, R.C. (author)
Historically, nanotechnology faces the same challenges that every new, emerging and science-based industry faces. The transfer of viable knowledge from science to market needs to be bridged better. To enhance this transfer, a methodology is designed which integrates engineering design and subject-action-object (SAO) based text mining to find,...

Multimodal imaging techniques are emerging in medical diagnosis. The synergistic combination of imaging techniques, such as MRI and PET/SPECT, is highly useful to strengthen each of the individual imaging modalities while reducing any of their disadvantages. In recent years, the progress of technical integration of imaging scanners has led to a...

Didden, A.P. (author)
Reducing particle size or material structure size to nanometer scale can make the material properties, such as light absorption and electronic structure, change compared to the same materials at normal scale. This gives them properties that can make them suitable for the development of highly efficient and improved micro-electronics, sensor...

Frisenda, R. (author)
In this dissertation, charge-transport through individual organic molecules is investigated. The single molecules are contacted with two-terminal mechanically controllable break junction gold electrodes and their electrical and mechanical behavior studied at room and low temperature.

Cation exchange is a powerful tool for the synthesis of nanostructures such as core–shell nanocrystals, however, the underlying mechanism is poorly understood. Interactions of cations with ligands and solvent molecules are systematically ignored in simulations. Here, we introduce the concept of pseudoligands to incorporate cation-ligand-solvent...

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) provides a framework for judging the ethical qualities of innovation processes, however guidance for researchers on how to implement such practices is limited. Exploring RRI in the context of nanotechnology, this paper examines how the dispersed and interdisciplinary nature of the nanotechnology field...

One of the most basic features that pervade biology is the existence of boundaries that separate living cells from their outer environments. Molecules responsible for the internal organization of a living cell must adapt to its boundaries, as the cell grows, divides, and changes in shape and size. In this thesis, we aim to understand how...

Two-dimensional networks of quantum dots connected by atomic bonds have an electronic structure that is distinct from that of arrays of quantum dots coupled by ligand molecules. We prepared atomically coherent two-dimensional percolative networks of PbSe quantum dots connected via atomic bonds. Here, we show that photoexcitation leads to...

Photoelectrochemical hydrogen production from solar energy and water offers a clean and sustainable fuel option for the future. Planar III/V material systems have shown the highest efficiencies, but are expensive. By moving to the nanowire regime the demand on material quantity is reduced, and new materials can be uncovered, such as wurtzite...

Electron backscatter diffraction was used to investigate the softening effect in low-carbon steel [Fe-0.051C-0.002Si-0.224Mn-0.045Al (wt pct)] during tensile deformation with in situ ultrasonic treatment. A bimodal grain size distribution is observed with relatively small equiaxed grains with an average diameter of 10 ?m at the grain boundaries...

Innovative engineering design shapes the development of novel technologies and is ethically as well as socially relevant, because it affects what kind of possibilities and consequences will arise. A major challenge in engineering design work on innovative technologies is the multitude of uncertainties in the form of known unknowns, unknown...

A highly porous fractal-like nanostructured metal oxide catalyst support with characteristic dimensions of a few nanometers is formed by producing metal nanoparticles in the gas phase, oxidizing them and depositing/sintering them on a nanofiber network. By admixing nanoparticles in the aerosol phase, these can evenly be distributed in the...

Properties of matter at the nano-scale may be very different from the ones observed at the macro-scale. The continuous variation of characteristics with diminishing size results in relevant changes in behavior. Similarly, these changes are caused by the rise of completely new phenomena (i.e. quantum confinement). Nanoscience can offer an...
