A collaboration with colleagues from the Universidad de Sevilla gives monodisperse bubbles with a twist. Novel swirl flow‑focusing microfluidic device for the production of monodisperse microbubbles. A link to the publication can be found here.
After organizing an event in 2014, Pathways to Solar Hydrogen Technologies, at the prestigious Lorentz Centre, we managed to coordinate the input of 45+ co-authors and produced a paper recently accepted in Energy and Environmental Science. The link to the paper can be found here.
Today I will be giving a Keynote presentation at SAFE2018. This event is organized within the three technical Dutch universities of Twente, Delft and Eindhoven. The conference is organized for the PhD students and is intended for the students to expand their network and share their research ideas which provide a unique opportunity for future collaborations.

As part of a collaboration with my colleague Ivo Peters, I will be giving a seminar on April 18th at the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics group. Besides talking about bubbles, we will also play with some “laser bubbles”.
Last February 19th I was invited to give a lecture entitled Microfluidics and micro-fabrication tricks to improve energy efficiencies of ultrasonic cavitation and electrolysis. A beautiful new building, and a great audience.
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.
