Ping Bai obtains her PhD!

Niels van Hoof successfully defends his PhD thesis

On June 3rd, 2021 has Niels van Hoof defended his Ph.D. thesis titled “Mapping Ultrafast Electric Fields using Terahertz Microscopy”. During his Ph.D., Niels has developed a unique THz near-field microscope that has enabled the investigation of resonances in surfaces at THz frequencies that were inaccessible before. The Cursor has written an article about Niels’…

Effective Negative Diffusion of Singlet Excitons in Organic Semiconductors

We have studied the diffusion of singlet and triplet excitons in tetracene crystals, a prototype singlet fission material, using ultrafast microscopy techniques. Upon laser excitation, triplets diffuse steadily while the singlet exciton distribution narrows, corresponding to an effective negative singlet diffusion. This counterintuitive result is explained by nonlinear triplet‒triplet annihilation. View the article in the Journal…

Strong light-matter coupling with Si nanoparticles

In our recently published manuscript, we demonstrate the strong coupling of electric and magnetic resonances in arrays of silicon nanoparticles with excitons in organic layers. This manuscript published in ACS Photonics has been selected by the journal as one of the most relevant results published over the past 12 months and highlighted during the celebration…

Crowdfunding for Remote Setups

During the lockdown months of March, April, and May all the labs got closed and the experimental research went into standby. All? not really. Niels van Hoof could continue his work from home with his fully remotely controlled setup. Niels is now writing the first and only scientific manuscript with experiments that were done during…
