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.
Halo of gas shows how exoplanets are slowly losing their atmosphere
Twee teams of astronomers, including from the universities of Amsterdam and Leiden, have discovered how hot gas giants are surrounded by large halos of thin helium gas, an indication that they are slowly losing their atmosphere. The helium, that was recently seen for the first time by the Hubble space
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.
