Jan van Dijk starts new group on modelling of EUV plasma dynamics
Jan van Dijk obtained his PhD degree in 2001 at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) on the basis of a numerical study of thermal plasma light sources with the help of Plasimo. After working as a PostDoc at Eindhoven University, the University of Illinois, and the Keio University in Tokyo/Yokohama, Japan, he returned to TU/e to work on microwave plasma sources which are used in the production of optical fibres. In 2003 he obtained a VENI grant which he used to study the modelling of non-thermal bio-medical plasma sources. Since May 2007 he is employed in the group EPG as Assistant Professor. His fields of interest include modelling of electro-magnetic fields and transport phenomena. In addition he studies object-oriented code design and tries to use modern C++ idiom like expression templates for solving coupled linearized systems of equations.
