Om de unieke experimenten te kunnen doen is elektronica onmisbaar bij DIFFER. We zijn daarom op zoek naar een

Technical support

At DIFFER we perform fundamental research on renewable energy. Are you interested in supporting our research team and extend the technical support capacity within our Solar Fuels Facilities and Instrumentation group? We are seeking a support / research technician who will assist the scientists on a daily basis in our laboratories in which we perform research across the borders of physics, chemistry and material science.

Internship

Evaluating plasmonic heating and hot-charge carrier effects in plasmon-driven syntheses

Postdoc position

This position is part of a recently granted NWO project, entitled CO2SPARE, which is aimed at the valorisation of CO2 in biogas. This project is executed jointly with the Non-equilibrium Fuel Conversion (NFC) group of DIFFER. It entails fundamental studies of the reverse Boudouard reaction, in support of an overall process involving pyrolysis of methane follows by reaction of CO2 with the carbon thus formed.

Postdoc position

Through a joint collaboration Exergy Storage (SME) and DIFFER aim with a consortium of partners to realize a prototype battery operating in this intermediate temperature window suitable for residential storage unit through the project NaSTOR. In this context, the role of DIFFER is particularly to focus on the challenges related with the NaSBs cathodic compartment.

Internship

Our future energy infrastructure will need ways of efficiently converting, transporting and storing electricity from sustainable but fluctuating sources. One approach uses sustainable electricity for the reverse combustion of atmospheric CO2 into so-called solar fuels, thereby converting electricity into the chemical bonds of high-density fuels. DIFFER pursues plasma-assisted conversion of CO2 into CO and O2 as an exciting new approach to recycling carbon dioxide into fuels, thereby closing the carbon cycle and eliminating the need for fossil fuels.

Internship

Photo-electrochemical (PEC) solar fuel conversion is one of the most promising techniques to convert solar energy directly into its most versatile form of energy, a fuel. However, the efficiency is still low and degradation too high. We have several open BSc/MSc/internship projects for both experiments and modeling & simulation.
