Dirk Van Den Bekerom


Dirk van den Bekerom is a postdoctoral researcher in the Plasma & Reacting Flow Science group, where he works on imaging and spectroscopy for interrogation of non-equilibrium plasmas. His current focus is developing Photo-Fragmentation Laser Induced Fluorescence for quantitative detection of methyl and hydrogen peroxide. He obtained his PhD at Eindhoven University of Technology while working at the Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER), where he developed optical diagnostics to investigate vibrational excitation in non-equilibrium plasmas containing CO2, N2, and CH4. After that he worked as postdoctoral researcher at The Ohio State University, where he developed (P)LIF-diagnostics for NO and vibrationally excited O2.
