Daan is (co)author of over 60 scientific publications. During his professional career at a Flemish R&D and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, he developed various sensors and sensor technologies for  air and water quality monitoring. During this period he gained experience in microelectromechanical  and resonator systems, electrochemical sensors, drop-on-demand deposition methods and ionic liquids. Besides the scientific aspects, Daan has, as inventor, been involved in a number of patent applications. Daan joined V.O. in December 2017.

Chien-Shiung Wu: the woman at the basis of quantum technology (but who didn’t get a Nobel Prize)

The 1957 Nobel Prize in Physics, according to many, went unfairly to Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen-Ning Yang. These two theoretical physicists had predicted the idea of ‘parity violation’, crucial in quantum physics, but it was Chien-Shiung Wu (1912-1997) who demonstrated the phenomenon through an experiment.Continue reading
