Controlled Molecule Imaging

Unraveling the Structure‑Function Relationship in the Molecular Sciences

We develop innovative methods to obtain full control over large molecules and nanoparticles. These methods and the created controlled samples are exploited in fundamental physics and chemistry studies to unravel the underlying mechanisms of chemistry and biology by watching molecules at work.

Jolijn Onvlee receives Dutch physics outreach award

07 April 2017

Every year, the Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Natuurkunde (NTvN), the Dutch Journal of Physics, by the Nederlandse Natuurkundige Vereniging (Netherlands' Physical Society) has a contest for PhD students and recently graduated postdocs to write an article on their dissertation that should be understandable for a broad public – the Dutch people interested in physics.

New publication on the characterization of gas-flow from aerosol injectors in the Journal of Applied Physics

31 March 2017

Our paper entitled "Characterizing gas flow from aerosol particle injectors" has been published in the Journal of Applied Physics. We show the detection of helium gas emerging from one of our aerosol injectors down to absolute number densities of 4×1016 cm-3, essentially measuring the local pressure inside a vacuum chamber with a spatial resolution of ~2 µm.
