The development of non-toxic, cost-effective and eco-friendly semiconductor nanocrystals (NCs)
for opto-electronic applications has become a major scientific challenge with great potential
economic outcomes. This project aims at exploring the chalcogenide perovskite family to produce
new generation of clean and earth abundant NCs with tunable band-gaps. The chalcogenide
perovskites (ABX3) NCs will be synthesized by ...

Laser and decay spectroscopy of neutron-deficient radioactive nuclei in the lead region (Z=82). KU Leuven
The fundamental interactions that are important to explain the properties of an atom are the electromagnetic force, that keep the electrons circling around the atomic nucleus, the weak force, that is responsible for nuclear beta decay which represents an important form of radioactivity, and the strong force, that keeps the protons and neutrons (also called nucleons) together in the nucleus. The electromagnetic force is well known, but the ...
Improving polymer/ZnO hybrid solar cells through optimization of charge carrier transport and energy-band engineering Hasselt University
This project aims to study the evolution of nuclear single particle orbits and its effect on changes in the shell structure in a few particular regions of the nuclear chart, far from the valley of stability, where predictions of the nuclear properties are not possible using current‐day nuclear theories or based on ‘systematic behavior’. The model‐independent determination of the nuclear spin of an isotopes ground state or a long‐lived ...
