Device characteristics at cryogenic temperatures can deviate significantly from their room temperature behaviour. For example, the threshold voltage of a MOSFET can increase by more than 100 mV when it is cooled down to 4.2 K, as shown in this thesis. If a designer is not aware of this shift, circuits that work as intended at room temperature...

Optogenetics is a powerful addition to the spectrum of techniques available in neuroscience to investigate neurophysiology and unravel how neural circuit structure is related to circuit function. This technique relies on introducing lightsensitive proteins or molecules as actuators to transduce an optical signal into a physiological perturbation...

This doctoral research investigates the understanding and implementation of public space in the reformed Chinese context, particularly from the perspectives of urban design and architecture, by referring to the complex process and result of transculturation (transculturación). It delineates how public space as a Greco-Roman originated concept...

This dissertation presents the experimental work on singlemolecule charge transport, particularly on the aspects of spin and orbital conformational effects in singlemolecule junctions. In this dissertation, we employ and develop various singlemolecule techniques, the mechanically controlled break junction (MCBJ), thermoelectric electromigrated...

Society relies on large amounts of energy to progress and allow for a high standard of living. The recent severe climate changes require advanced technologies related to cleaner energy resources. One such technology beneficial for accelerating this current energy transition is geothermal energy. This type of energy is often found in fractured...

The growing demands for sustainable chemical technologies have prompted a wave of searching new catalysts based on earth-abundant metals. In the field of (de)hydrogenation catalysis, however, the huge performance gap is commonly seen between the 3d-metal-based catalysts and their noble metal counterparts, which largely hampers their practical...

Composites are increasingly used in the aerospace industry due to their lightweight potential and flexible design options. The most widespread manufacturing process for large components made of fibre composites is still the open mould process. In this process, a composite component is placed on a mould and hermetically sealed with a vacuum bag...

The MTH process is recognized as one of the key ingredients of the methanol (MeOH) economy concept enabling the production of crucial hydrocarbon building blocks, such as light olefins and aromatics, starting from CO2 as the primary carbon source. Besides the driving force of reducing reliance on fossil fuels, the highly tunable nature of this...

This research aims to explore policy venues to encourage the use of data from Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) at a national level or National CORS (NCORS). Thailand, among many countries, has established NCORS to observe and process the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals to improve the accuracy of positional data...

Interacting particle systems (IPS) is a subfield of probability theory that provided a fruitful framework in which several questions of physical interests have been answered with mathematical rigor. An interacting particle system is a stochastic system consisting of a very large number of particles interacting with each other. The class of IPS...

For exploration and development of the earth, seismic surveys are acquired to provide information about the subsurface, within specifications of accuracy set by geologists and engineers, and within business constraints on budgets and turn-around time for processing and interpretation of the data. The case of seismic surveys that are acquired,...

This thesis constitutes a first step towards measuring the passenger capacity of station platforms. First, it defines platform capacity on the basis of the locations of queues at exit escalators from platforms, the presence of passengers in the platform-edge danger zone and the duration of stops. It then renders capacity measurable using real...

Delivery of biomolecules using pulsed electric fields or electrotransfer has applications such as biomedical engineering, bioprocess engineering and genomic engineering. When a cell is placed in an electric field, the induced transmembrane voltage catalyzes the formation of pores on the cell membrane. This enables the delivery of otherwise cell...

Due to an increased demand for transport, ships become larger, needing a larger navigable depth. For these reasons a waterway needs to be dredged and a Cutter Suction Dredger is a vessel suitable for this operation.<br/><br/>A Cutter Suction Dredger is a floating vessel which removes sand, clay or soft rock from sea or river beds. It has a...

Mobility is an important part of daily life. With modern mobility systems, people have access to a range of transport modes allowing them to basically reach any destination they want. Although people often have multiple options to choose from, personal mobility is dominated by motorized road transport in many countries and cities, also in the...

The phenomenon of scattering is ubiquitous. The human eye sees it as a ``blue" sky in a summer morning or a diffuse glow during the night, the color of a laser or fog in the air. Alternatively, scattering recorded with a state-of-the-art instrument manifests itself in collisions between atoms, electrons, and photons, such as processes in nuclear...

Future concepts for Air Traffic Management (ATM) foresee—and even mandate—an increase in the distance from the destination airport at which the ATM system should start planning the arrival sequence and arrival time of inbound flights. By increasing the horizon beyond one hour before arrival, it becomes possible to timely adjust the flight path...

Radionuclides are essential in nuclear medicine and therefore new and improved production methods continue to play an important role in ensuring sustainable availability. This thesis focuses on the production of two radionuclides (99mTc and 51Cr) using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). MOFs are novel porous materials and their potential to be...

As a society, we have come to notice the influence and impact Artificially Intelligent (AI) agents have on the way we live our lives. For these AI agents to support us both effectively and responsibly, we require an understanding on how they make decisions and what the consequences are of these decisions. The research _field of Explainable...

Discrete Choice Models are valuable tools for quantitative decision-making analysis: they allow analysts to draw behavioural conclusions from data, better understand and predict choices, and evaluate policies. However, up until recently, they had a blind spot for morality. Moral values often play an essential role in decision-making; fairness or...
