NWO Vidi Award : Quantum dots shining their light on plasma charging

Prize: NWOVidiScientific


How particles only a few nanometers in size charge in plasma is extremely complex. Although considerable technological relevance, the principal mechanisms have never been investigated experimentally in a direct manner. This research utilizes quantum dots, changing color upon charging, to probe fundamental charging processes and the governing plasma physical
