Advanced illumination techniques for high-contrast highresolution fluorescence and scattering microscopy Ghent University
In light microscopy an object is illuminated with a lamp or a laser and the transmitted,
reflected or fluorescent light is detected to get information on the object. In the project two approaches will be developed to study small particles and their interaction with living cells: Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy and Complex Beam Scattering Microscopy.
In standard fluorescence microscopy the entire sample is illuminated and there ...

X-ray scattering to study nanostructures of solids and food Ghent University
Everything that surround us is made out of building blocks. Their configuration and the manner in which they connect to each other determines the characteristics of a system (material or food). For instance, it determines their color, hardness, melting point, performance and stability. The length scale of these building blocks is in the nanoscale and can be studied by X-ray scattering. Scattering techniques are non-invasive; therefore, the ...
Study of nucleation and crystal growth of pharmaceuticals by X-ray and harmonic light scattering Ghent University
In this project we will study the crystallization process of pharmaceutical compounds using state-ofthe-
art nonlinear optical scattering techniques, combined with more traditional linear scattering and
x-ray scattering techniques. The proposed techniques provide complementary information about
different stages of the process, from aggregation and nucleation to subsequent growth. This opens a
window into the fundamental ...

Scattering of light at nano-structured electro-optical components Ghent University
Liquid crystals, solar cells and displays are electro-optical components in which light propagation is essential. Traditionally these components are described with 1-dimensional simulations because the lateral dimensions are much larger than the wavelength of light. The aim of this project is to develop, in collaboration between different groups, the expertise for the realization, simulation and characterization of light scattering at ...
Characterization of crystal growth of metal-organic frameworks with angle dependent second harmonic scattering. KU Leuven
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are built up from metal ions linked together by organic units into a porous 3-D framework. MOFs can offer challenging design concepts in the field of advanced materials. In this project we focus specifically on acentric MOFs; these comprise chiral, piezo-electric, ferroelectric and frequency doubling MOFs. For applications it is often necessary to obtain MOF crystals of a uniform size and shape. Moreover, it is ...
