Advanced 2D and 3D chemical imaging using laser ablation ICP - mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) and complementary multimodal techniques via image fusion Ghent University
Laser ablation-ICP-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) can be used for visualizing the distribution of (trace) elements across any solid material with high spatial resolution. The recent development of low-dispersion LA cells has provided gains in throughput and sensitivity of 2-3 orders of magnitude compared to conventional cells. The project focuses on development of methodologies for high-resolution 2D & 3D imaging of samples of a wide range ...
Characterization of porous geomaterials in 2D and 3D Ghent University
Optical and fluorescence microscopy visualizes pores in 2D. CT data allows characterization of complex pores in 3D. This urges for a calibrated system by fusing the standard fluorescence and petrographical microscopy images with 3D data of the high-resolution CT scanners. By fusion of XRF data, a correct characterization of geomaterials will be obtained in a structurally and chemically calibrated way.

From 2D to 3D crystals: a multi-scale, multi-technique and multi-system approach of the crystallization of organic molecules KU Leuven
The occurrence of two or more crystal structures for a given molecule, a phenomenon which is called polymorphism, is ubiquitous to various classes of synthetic and natural compounds. Examples of polymorphism are known in numerous application fields, such as food, explosives, pigments, semiconductors, fertilizers, and pharmaceutical drugs. Different crystal structures, so-called polymorphs, of the same compound exhibit sometimes very different ...

3D strain fields for functional 4D material design: A unifying computational protocol to tune the phase stability of strain-engineered nanostructured materials Ghent University
Tuneable nanostructured materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and metal halide perovskites (MHPs) are highly promising contenders for various pressing technological challenges, from efficient photovoltaic devices to high-performant shock absorbers. Their highly modifiable atomic structure and polymorphism, which can lead to large-amplitude phase transitions in response to small changes in structural composition or external ...
MINIMa: Modulation of Immunogenicity of regulated Necrosis by 3d bio-prIntable MAterials Ghent University
Physiological cell death, called apoptosis, typically does not induce an immune response U+2013ut it
rather suppresses it- and is therefore non-immunogenic or even immuno-suppressive. Recently, it
has been discovered that besides apoptosis there are other regulated cell death modalities, which
are grouped under the umbrella term regulated necrosis. The type of cell death is a decisive
element in determining the quality ...
INTEGRATED multi-OMICs applications on 2 and 3D IPSC models to unravel the role of the immune system and energy metabolism in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis KU Leuven
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is an adult-onset neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive loss of upper and lower motor neurons. Patients suffer from progressive muscle weakness and usually die within 2-5 years after disease onset. The mechanisms of motor neuron death are only partially understood. The use of stem cell models using patient-derived cells are accelerating our knowledge about disease mechanisms.
The primary ...
