Development of multiplexed plasma reactor for wastewater treatment Ghent University
The project is based on improving the energy efficiency of wastewater treatment process by developing a non-thermal plasma reactor, capable of producing and dosing reactive species in situ in wastewater for the removal of pollutants. Utilization of non-thermal plasma reactors require significantly less energy as compared to conventional one for wastewater treatment.
Models of Quantum Gravity and Edge States Ghent University
Understanding quantum gravity is one of the most fundamental problems in high-energy theoretical physics. We attack this problem using two a priori disjoint approaches. The first consists of looking at classical gravity supplemented with quantum fields
Integrated III-V-on-silicon-nitride mode-locked lasers for frequency comb generation in telecom and frequency metrology applications Ghent University
Optical frequency combs have become a cornerstone of frequency metrology and are now available as commercial systems based on pulsed fiber lasers. Since the Nobel prize in physics was awarded to John L. Hall and Theodor W. Hänsch in 2006, the application
Physical and numerical signatures of quantum phases beyond the Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson paradigm Ghent University
My proposal centers around materials where the atoms are organised in a crystal structure. Many macroscopic properties of such materials are determined by the collective behaviour of the electrons in the outer orbitals of the atoms. These electrons can either be mobile and move between atoms, or be frozen in place in which case there can still be interesting interactions between the spins of the different electrons. Depending on how these ...
