The most recent “pit” story, as a collaboration’s result, together with colleagues at TU Darmstad: Bubble nucleation from micro-crevices in a shear flow.
Several news-websites replicated the great news, and the printed version of Kijk includes a two-page special report on our idea! From the Kijk magazine website. From the U-today website. From the University of Twente website. A video with an interview (in Dutch) can be seen here:
Just last week our most recent work on needle-free injection methods was published with title: Toward jet injection by continuous-wave laser cavitation. The article can be downloaded for three months from this site.
Last week there were two important news: a) PhD student Peter van der Linde gave his first Oral presentation at the most important meeting in his topic during the Solar Water splitting session at the 232nd Electrochemical Society Meeting in USA. The abstract of his talk can be found here: Evolution of Electrolytic Hydrogen Bubbles on Microstructured […]
This week I will stay in Barcelona to give two lectures during the 10th World Congress of Chemical Engineering. On Monday, I will talk about Teaching Entrepreneurship and Process Intensification Principles in Twente, while on Thursday, the topic will be Synergising effects achieved with small scales and acoustic energy.
The Dutch magazine KIJK, has nominated my needle-free idea InkBeams, and the popular vote has positioned it at the top of all the selected ideas. Now a group of experts will decide what will happen … Looking forward to it!
This week I will be visiting my colleague, Prof. Colmenares’s group Catalysis for Sustainable Energy Production and Environmental Protection, from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences. I will be giving two lectures supported by the National Science Centre (NCN) in Poland within research project Sonata Bis Nr. 2015/18/E/ST5/00306. This project is aimed […]
My colleagues from the University of Twente (Marijke Stehower and Joe Laufer) have organised a venue and time (Friday the 14th of July) for me to share some experiences with former alumni. The details can be found here.
I will be giving a lecture at the Department Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Tandon School of Engineering. This visit has been arranged by Assistant professor Miguel Modestino (http://www.miguelmodestino.com)
I am starting a collaboration with Prof. Ian W. Hunter from the Bioinstrumentation lab, and Prof. Gareth McKinley’s Non-Newtonian Fluid Dynamics Research Group. We want to learn more about thermocavitation and its rheology aspects; let’s see how far we can get at MIT!
