PhD position Energy Systems & Control

In this project, we aim to develop the hybrid control approach necessary to control density profiles to optimize the fusion reaction and hence the efficiency of future fusion reactors. This project is a combination of fusion knowledge and advanced control engineering.

In the project we will develop a hybrid control1 approach for the pellet injection necessary to fuel the core's fusion reactor. The newly developed controllers will be tested using JINTRAC4 code suite (HPI2, JETTO, PENCIL, PION etc.). Moreover, synthetic diagnostics will also need to be developed and included, e.g., in-house developed density observer RAPDENS2,3 and a neutron sensor as a measurement for fusion power.

Post doc Electrochemical Materials and Interfaces

Electrochemical materials and interfaces are present in many energy systems, such as fuel cells, batteries, electrochromic windows and water splitting devices. The performance of such devices is strongly related to the materials and interface properties. Therefore, understanding and tuning of these properties are crucial in order to reach highest performance and to supply alternative, sustainable energy solutions for the future.

In the group "Electrochemical Materials and Interfaces (EMI)", we focus on the fabrication, characterization, and optimization of photo-/electrochemical materials and interfaces. We are combining in a highly multidisciplinary approach experiments with modeling & simulations. This allows us to elucidate the limitations in the materials and at the interface and to design materials and interfaces with improved performance.

In this vacancy, we are looking for an experimental Postdoc who can strengthen our team in characterization of metal oxide electrodes at the interface to a liquid electrolyte by spectroscopic techniques, in particular ATR-FTIR spectroscopy.

Postdoc Ion beam

DIFFER operates the only ion beam facility for materials characterization in the Netherlands. It consists of three beam lines and is currently used primarily for ex-situ materials characterization. In the coming years, we want to open the facility as a full user facility and want to offer in-situ and operando measurement feasibilities as well as ion-irradiation. Part of the research will focus on operando electrochemical measurements in the field of Solar Fuels, in particular on electrochemical interfaces as present in energy conversion and storage applications.

With diverse ion beam measurement methods, such as RBS, ERD, NRA, PIXE, PIGE, we want to study reaction mechanisms and materials degradation in water splitting (dark and light) as well as fuel cell applications. Operando measurements will allow to connect the materials and interface properties to the electrochemical and catalytic characteristics which will give new insight into the mechanisms taking place at the interface and limiting the performance.

In this vacancy, we are looking for an experimental Post Doc who will work together with our ion beam specialists and experts from the department Solar Fuels together to realize proof-of-concept measurements for operando electrochemical measurements. Once proof of concept is shown, the research can be extended to different applications.
