A fresh view on carbon radio recombination lines powered by LOFAR
The Low Frequency Array enables studies of low-frequency carbon radio recombination lines with unprecedented sensitivity, spectral and spatial resolution.
Breaking & Entering: PAH photodissociation and top-down chemistry
Laboratory, observation and modeling work on the dissociation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in interstellar environments and the formation of new molecular species through the fragmentation process.
Radio galaxies at low frequencies: high spatial and spectral resolution studies with LOFAR
Promotor: H.J.A. Röttgering, Co-promotor: G.K. Miley
Shining Light on PAHs in Space
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are the most abundant class of organic compounds in space. The PAH field evolves from the constant interaction between experimentalists, theorists, modellers and observers. While laboratory research and quantum chemical calculations together set up the molecular…
Tales of Orion: the interplay of gas, dust, and stars in the interstellar medium
Promotores: Prof.dr. A.G.G.M. Tielens & Prof.dr. L. Kaper (UvA)
X-ray spectroscopy of interstellar dust: from the laboratory to the Galaxy
In this thesis, we present new laboratory data of interstellar dust analogues.
Modeling interstellar bubbles: near and far

Staring at stardust
Dust particles in space form the basis for new stars and planets. But what do these particles consist of and how do they behave? Sascha Zeegers studied this. PhD defence 1 November.
Identifying the origins of galaxy formation
This thesis investigates how galaxies form and what diversifies the evolutionary histories of galaxies.
Young stars in the Orion Nebula are practicing birth control
Astronomers from Leiden University have discovered that the star wind from a newborn star in the Orion Nebula prevents more stars from forming in the immediate vicinity. They made the discovery with data from the SOFIA observatory. This was announced by co-author Xander Tielens during a press conference…
