Packard Fellow in Science and Engineering

Prize

Description

Research in the van der Veen lab aims at visualizing light-induced processes in materials with resolutions down to the single-atom level. They develop new microscopy and spectroscopy tools to directly track structural changes in single nanoparticles while they convert light into useful chemical energy, such as electricity or fuels, ultimately providing novel structure-property-function relationships and enabling the rational control of nanomaterials optimized for solar energy harvesting.
