My name is Dr Thomas Jollans. I'm an experimental physicist currently living in in the Netherlands. I recently got my PhD at the Single-Molecule Optics group at Leiden University with Prof. Michel Orrit where I studied the properties of single optically heated gold nanoparticles using state-of-the art optical microscopy techniques.
Previously, I studied at Mansfield College of the University of Oxford and completed an M.Phys. project with Prof. Achillefs Kapanidis. On occasion, I have been active in various corners of the GNU/Linux and open source community.
