two-photon-excited single-molecule fluorescence by single gold nanorods
This thesis is a collection of experimental attempts to enhance photoluminescence of fluorescent molecules and quantum dots with single gold nanorods (GNRs) and relevant applications.
The formation of complex organic molecules in dense clouds-Sweet results from laboratory
Large areas of space are filled by molecular clouds that consist of gas and dust grains that are the remnants of dead stars. When these clouds start collapsing, the decreasing temperature and increasing density cause gas particles to start accreting onto dust grain surfaces.
Paving the path between low- and high-mass star formation: dynamics probed by Herschel far-infrared spectroscopy
Promotor: Prof.dr. E.F. van Dishoeck, Prof.dr. F.F.S. van der Tak (RUG)
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…
Molecular electronics: Controlled manipulation, noise and graphene architecture
Atoms and molecules are the basic units of matter. If we keep dividing a bar of gold or a glass of water into smaller parts, at the end we are left with a single gold atom or a water molecule.
The astrochemical factory: A solid base for interstellar reactions
In this thesis chemical and physical processes in the ice mantles on interstellar dust grains are studied.
