The research and development of new innovative materials can be illustrated by interesting, beautiful and asthonishing images of the materials in particular and of the equipment used. On this page we refer to all the images used on this website and to the people and organisations that provided us with these images.
- The image used as a header on this page is an EBSD (Electron Backscatter Diffraction Analysis) analysis showing a martensitic microstructure (grey) containing fine grains of retained austenite (colour) provided by Maria Santofimia Navarro (TU Delft).
- The previous mentioned Q&P Steel Microstructure has also been used on the homepage of the website and on the People's news page mentioning Ton van den Boogaard appointed president of ESAFORM.
- The Research index page shows Polymer brush systems provided by Sissi de Beer (UT). "Bio-inspired immiscible polymer brush systems as efficient lubricants. The left image shows the traditional polymer brush system in which polymers of the opposing brushes interdigitate, which results in higher friction and wear due to scission and chain pull out. The right image shows the newly developed immiscible polymer brush system in which overlap between the brushes is prevented and the friction is very low."
- The header image on the page with Research Facilities for Materials Scientists has been provided by DIFFER (Dutch Institute For Fundumental Energy Research) and prof. Richard van de Sanden (TU/e). It shows a plasma experiment magnum-psi ("onderzoek naar plasma-wandwisselwerking voor materialen in fusie-energiecentrales").
- The image illustrating the MESA+ Research Institute for Nanotechnology (UT) on the same page with research facilities is some showcasing research provided by Julius Vancso, chair of the group Materials Science and Technology of Polymers (MTP): Writing Nanopatterns with Electrochemical Oxidation on Redox Responsive Organometallic Multilayers by AFM. "Writing patterns by AFM assisted electrochemical dip pen lithography was demonstrated using redox active multilayers fabricated in a layer-by-layer process from polycationic and polyanionic poly(ferrocenylsilane)s. Pattern formation was attributed to local reduction by using a conducting AFM, and electrolyte “inks”. Line widths of the order of 50-60 nm could be achieved."
- The image used on the page on Facility Sharing has also been provided by DIFFER, the Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research. It shows a close-up of a plasma experiment magnum-psi ("onderzoek naar plasma-wandwisselwerking voor materialen in fusie-energiecentrales; plasma op wolfraam voor fusie-experiment ITER").
- Also the image used for the Agenda page has been provided by DIFFER, the Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research. The image shows solar fuels - "een plasmareactor voor efficient recyclen van CO2 tot bouwstenen voor duurzame brandstof".
- The image used to announce 3TU.HTM Kick-off Symposium was also provided by DIFFER, the Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research. This particular image gives an impression of "nanogestructureerde materialen voor foto-electrochemische omzetting van energie uit zonlicht in waterstof".
