There is a substantial body of literature on public understandings of large-scale ‘environmental’ phenomena such as climate change and resource degradation. At the same time, political science and economics analyse the governance arrangements to deal with such issues. These realms of research rarely meet: there has been little research into...

With a declining mining industry, Canada is looking for new models of economy. Arctic Eco-Tourism has already started growing over the last decade and is expected to grow even more rapid in future. This brings the chance of economic growth and employment. But it is also a danger¬ous situation for nature. Since the Canadian north is to more than...

Previous meta-analyses and reviews on gender differences in emotion recognition have shown a small to moderate female advantage. However, inconsistent evidence from recent studies has raised questions regarding the implications of different methodologies, stimuli, and samples. In the present research based on a community sample of more than...

Considering both architectural and constructional aspects of the built environment, hybridity or multi-materiality is essential to generate functional habitable spaces. Buildings consist of subsystems that each require different and sometimes conflicting material attributes and behaviours. In this context, expanding the solution space for...

The recent advances in complementary technologies have given a new impulse in the research activities related to distributed propulsion. Light electric engines, whose performance is rather insensitive to scaling, improved battery capacities and autonomous flight all contribute to this trend. Promising concepts featuring electrically powered...

A combined experimental and numerical investigation is conducted on the anisotropic water diffusion behaviour of unidirectional glass/epoxy composites. Experimental diffusivity values are obtained by immersing thin material slices for each of its planes of orthotropy extracted from a thick composite panel and interphase measurements are...

Water authorities and drinking water companies are challenged with the question if, where and how to abate contaminants of emerging concern in the urban water cycle. The most effective strategy under given conditions is often unclear to these stakeholders as it requires insight into several aspects of the contaminants such as sources, properties...

This paper presents an initial proof-of-concept implementation of a comprehensively intelligent built-environment based on mutually informing Design-to-Robotic-Production and -Operation (D2RP&O) strategies and methods developed at Delft University of Technology (TUD). In this implementation, D2RP is expressed via deliberately...

Phylogenetic networks are used to display the relationship among different species whose evolution is not treelike, which is the case, for instance, in the presence of hybridization events or horizontal gene transfers. Tree inference methods such as maximum parsimony need to be modified in order to be applicable to networks. In this paper, we...

The structural and electrical properties of metastable defects in various types of hydrogenated amorphous silicon have been studied using a powerful combination of continuous wave electron-paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, electron spin echo (ESE) decay measurements, and Doppler broadening positron annihilation spectroscopy. The observed...

We study the Gouy phase of a scalar wavefield that is focused by a lens suffering from primary spherical aberration. It is found that the Gouy phase has different behaviors at the two sides of the intensity maximum. This results in a systematic increase of the successive wavefront spacings around the diffraction focus. Since all lenses have some...

With a growing world population and a trend towards more resource-intensive diets, pressure on land and water resources for food production will continue to increase in the coming decades. Large parts of the world rely on rainfed agriculture for their food security. In Africa, 90% of the food production is from rainfed agriculture, generally...

Thin-film silicon solar cells (TFSSC), which can be manufactured from abundant materials solely, contain nano-textured interfaces that scatter the incident light. We present an approximate very fast algorithm that allows optimizing the surface morphology of two-dimensional nano-textured interfaces. Optimized nano-textures scatter the light...

The meso-scale surface roughness of piezoelectric fiber composites can be manipulated by applying an electric field to a piezocomposite with a polished surface. In the absence of an applied voltage, the tips of the embedded piezoelectric ceramic fibers are below the surface of the piezocomposite and a silicon wafer counter surface rests solely...

Bituminous binders are known to have microstructures at typical length scales of micrometers. This microstructure can be probed with Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). Now that worldwide several research groups are reporting AFM results on bitumen, it is becoming important to improve the understanding of the reproducibility and objectivity of the...

This study evaluated between-sample memory in isotopic measurements of ?2H and ?18O in water samples by laser spectroscopy. Ten isotopically depleted water samples spanning a broad range of oxygen and hydrogen isotopic compositions were measured by three generations of offaxis integrated cavity output spectroscopy and cavity ringdown...
