Infrared spectroscopy of astrophysically relevant hydrocarbons
This thesis is about the study of hydrocarbons via infrared spectroscopy.
the hot Universe: Advances and challenges in high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy
Hot astrophysical plasma is ubiquitous in the Universe, from comets in our Solar system to the largest scale structures -- the cosmic web filaments. These hot plasmas, with the temperature of a few millions of degrees, are often observed in the X-ray wavelength range.
Spectroscopic characterization of exoplanets: From LOUPE to SINFONI
Over the past years it has been discovered that the population of extra-solar planets is large and diverse.
The Anharmonic Infrared Spectra of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
This thesis presents the anharmonic infrared spectra of a series of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Comparisons and characterizations are made based on high-resolution low-temperature gas-phase experimental spectra.

Galaxy formation traced by heavy element pollution
Galaxies form and evolve through close interaction with their surroundings. As a result, the heavy elements ('metals') that are synthesized in stars, are found both inside and outside galaxies.
Portable Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) as a sample-reducing strategy in Archaeology
Large media attention for Spinoza Prize Michel Orrit
An important award like the Spinoza Prize, the 'Dutch Nobel Prize', generates lots of media attention. An overview.
