Van Aken, R.H. (author)
This thesis has discussed two electron microscopy applications that make use of ultra-thin foils: the tunnel junction emitter and the low-energy foil corrector. Both applications have in common that the electron beam is sent through the thin foil at low energy. Part of the electrons will scatter in the foil, thus causing a reduction of the...

We have performed measurements on terahertz (THz) apertureless near-field microscopy that show that the temporal shape of the observed near-field signals is approximately proportional to the time-integral of the incident field. Associated with this signal change is a bandwidth reduction by approximately a factor of 3 which is observed using both...

In this thesis we focus on the compaction of DNA within Escherichia coli and aim to gain some understanding of the physical mechanism behind its spatial organization in the cell. Chapter I is a brief review of the current knowledge of nucleoid structure. We discuss a model for DNA compaction in the living Escherichia coli cell, for which this...

Traditional light sources for fluorescence microscopy have been mercury lamps, xenon lamps, and lasers. These sources have been essential in the development of fluorescence microscopy but each can have serious disadvantages: lack of near monochromaticity, heat generation, cost, lifetime of the light source, and possible distortions due to...

In multiplex CARS microscopy the generated anti-Stokes signal is generated and detected simultaneously over a significant part of the vibrational spectrum. The signal-to-noise ratio of the thus detected spectra is limited only by shot-noise. This principle is demonstrated using a dilution series of 2-propanol in water. It is derived...

Recently, an extraordinary transmission of light through small holes (<200 nm) in a thin metallic film has been described. This phenomenon has been shown to be the result of the photon-plasmon interaction in thin films where a periodic structure (such as a set of holes) is embedded in the film. One of the extraordinary results is that the beam...

We have performed low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy measurements on single-wall carbon nanotubes that are freely suspended over a trench. The nanotubes were grown by chemical vapor deposition on a Pt substrate with predefined trenches etched into it. Atomic resolution was obtained on the freestanding portions of the nanotubes....

The study of thin protective coatings is one of the major research topics in the industry. Among the many questions in this wide topic, the aim of this thesis has been to contribute to the understanding of two of them: the problem of the adhesion and the role of porosity in thin films. The thin films studied in this work were mainly...

Van Aert, S. (author)
Statistical experimental design is applied to set up quantitative atomic resolution transmission electron microscopy experiments. In such experiments, observations of the atomic structure of the object under study are always subject to spontaneous fluctuations. As a result of these fluctuations, the precision with which structure parameters can...

He+ ions were implanted into silicon with a fluence of 5×10 16?cm?2 at different temperatures ranging from 473 to 1073 K. Samples were analyzed by thermal helium desorption spectroscopy and by transmission electron microscopy. As far as cavity formation is concerned, the behavior can be divided into three stages depending on the implantation...

Vicinal YBa2Cu3O7?? (YBCO) thin films of thickness h = 20–480?nm are grown by pulsed-laser deposition on 10° miscut (001) SrTiO3 substrates. The anisotropic resistivities, c-axis texture, and critical temperature drastically depend on the thickness of vicinal films. High-resolution electron microscopy reveals a defect microstructure with strong...

We have measured electrical transport across epitaxial, nanometer-sized metal–semiconductor interfaces by contacting CoSi2 islands grown on Si(111) with the tip of a scanning tunneling microscope. The conductance per unit area was found to increase with decreasing diode area. Indeed, the zero-bias conductance was found to be ? 104 times larger...

Carbon nanotubes are small cylindrical molecules with a typical diameter of 1 nm and lengths of up to micrometers. These intriguing molecules exhibit, depending on the exact atomic structure, either semiconducting or metallic behavior. This makes them ideal candidates for possible future molecular electronics. In this thesis Janssen describes...

Hybrid fiber reinforcement can be very efficient for improving the tensile response of the composite. In such materials, fibers of different geometries can act as bridging mechanisms over cracks of different widths. The fiber bridging efficiency depends on the interface properties, which makes interface characterization very important. Therefore...

The trend in biochemical analysis is to carry out an everincreasing number of tests, in less time, with fewer chemicals. This is why Delft is one of the places where researchers are working on the development of what are known as Labs-on-Chips. The minute dimensions and the minuscule quantities of liquid involved make for a whole new range of...

In this paper a method is described to quantify shrinkage microcracking in young mortar by means of crack mapping. Visualisation of the microcracks is realised with two techniques: Fluorescence Light Microscopy (FLM) and Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy (ESEM). The preliminary results obtained with the microcrack mapping method showed...
