Nanofabrication is about creating structures with nanometer precision, whether thin films of nanometer thickness or lateral structures with nanodimensions. To create such nanostructures, we have three types of equipment at our...
To inspect structures with dimensions down to the nanometer scale, we use advanced types of optical microscopy.For example, (spinning disk) confocal microscopy is used to inspect the sample under study one point at a time and...
Photonic structures are designed to affect the motion of photons in a similar way as electronic materials (such as semiconductors) affect the motion of electrons. The periodicity that is key in these structures is mostly achieved...
Electron microscopes use electron beams to inspect tiny specimens in a similar way as light beams are used in optical microscopes. However, the use of electrons instead of photons (light) allows a much better resolution, down to...
Solars cells, or photovoltaics, are a key topic at AMOLF. We not only characterise these devices in terms of their overall efficiency, we also study them at the nanometer scale in an effort to improve our fundamentalunderstanding...
To study phenomena at the nanoscale, it can be useful to build structures using nanosized building blocks, in some cases even single molecules or atoms. This requires tools to manipulate nanosized objects. The ability to address...
The interaction of light with matter reveals important information about the structure of the material being examined. A study of the scattered light as a function of scattering angle gives information about (changes in)...
To understand how light propagates through complex nanostructures such as solar cells, AMOLF researchersmake use of numerical simulations and analytical calculations. Based on such analyses, the design of thenanostructures can be...
AMOLF has strong expertise in various types of ultrafast spectroscopy. In this technique, molecules are studied onextremely short time scales (typically femtoseconds) after being excited using ultrashort laser pulses. The results...
Water is a fascinating fluid with well-known yet remarkable properties. These are directly related to the fact thatthe H2O molecules form a network through mutual hydrogen bridges. This hydrogenbridged network is a verydynamic...
