Maarten Bransen

Student Maarten Bransen.

Maarten Bransen is the winner of the student award Best Master's Thesis 2017.

Collaborating with others turns out to be very useful and productive.

Maarten’s research focusses on the optimalisation of the optical properties of gold nanorods. These nanorods can be used for all sorts of purposes, for instance for fotothermic (cancer)treatments or to administer medication in specific parts of the body. Maartens results can lead to interesting use in catalysis or help in detecting very low concentrations of molecules via spectroscopy.
