Netherlands: PhD: Energy efficiency of light sources

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


To develop novel energy-efficient light
sources it is necessary to understand the energy fluxes inside the
plasma. Electrical power is converted into light, but in the process
part is lost as heat or radiated away in the invisible UV and infrared
regions. The PhD candidate is expected to determine in detail the
processes governing energy fluxes in plasma lamps using both
experimental methods and a theoretical plasma model.


University Graduate

Candidates for this
position should have a (nearly) completed an MSc degree in (Applied)
Physics or a related area and an interest in experimental physics.


Technische Universiteit Eindhoven Department of Applied Physics

The Department of Applied Physics at
Eindhoven University of Technology has 15 professorial chairs with
about 65 academic and 60 technical specialists, as well as 110 graduate
and 375 undergraduate students. The leading research themes cover
functional materials, transport physics, and plasma physics and
radiation technology. The department has extensive national and
international partnerships, including industrial partners. It
participates in several national (top) research schools, and in two
national top technology institutes: Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI) and
Materials Innovation Institute (M2i). Eindhoven University of
Technology is one of the three participants in the Dutch 3TU Federation
