Breaking the Wall of Seeing Atoms and Molecules [electronic resource]: How Atomic Microscopy and Spectroscopy May Help Our Understanding of Materials

Falling Walls Foundation
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Transcending the boundaries between chemists and physicists, multidisciplinary academic Daniël Vanmaekelbergh has developed a new way of understanding atoms and molecules. This 2010 Falling Walls lecture video highlights Vanmaekelbergh's mission to discern completely new classes of materials based on interacting colloidal building blocks that are crucial to the functionality of solar cells, lasers, and LEDs. Vanmaekelbergh's work, which has been supported by the Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research, embarks on pioneering research in nanoscience that relates the atomic landscape to the local electronic spectrum. Vanmaekelbergh, with approximately 165 peer-reviewed publications, is committed to groundbreaking work; but this innovative scientist is just as committed to incorporating young researchers and doctoral students from Eastern Europe in order to disseminate any remaining intellectual and academic divisions within the continent.
