Active colloidal architectures
Biological materials are still a mystery. In this project, we obtain insight into the interplay of activity and structure, unravelling some of the basic nonequilibrium mechanisms that also govern biological materials. Read more …

Colloidal molecules
In this project, you obtain insight into molecular interactions, structure and dynamics by studying model, patchy colloidal particles, in real space and time. Read more …

Colloidal eutectics
How do complex crystalline phases form? Using model colloidal particles with attractive pair interactions AA, AB, and BB, we obtain direct insight into the formation of complex eutectic crystal phases. Read more …

Quantum-dot assembly for future photovoltaics
We investigate the photo physics of semiconductor nanocrystals for use in optoelectronics and photovoltaics. Read more …


Two-dimensional materials for energy applications
Next to graphene, there is a whole new class of 2D materials exhibiting extraordinary optical and electrical properties. We investigate these materials for solar energy applications. Read more …

Nanocrystal films as spectral-converters to enhance photosynthesis
We explore highly fluorescent nanocrystals as spectral converters to optimize light for more efficient photosynthesis to increase crop yields. Read more …
