Ahmadpanahi, S.H. (author)
This thesis is structured in six distinct chapters. In Chapter 1 a general introduction is given to address the main challenge in thin-film silicon solar cells and to motivate the need for light trapping. This chapter also describes the main focus of this thesis and the urge to understand the light behaviour inside a periodic waveguide thin film...

This thesis contributes to a detailed understanding of the urbanisation of Tehran, and offers a new perspective on its complexities and specificities. This perspective builds on the work of urban scholars who have critically questioned the Eurocentric understanding of cities and have moved beyond an artificial hierarchy of cities that pushes for...

This paper investigates the effect of temperature and hybridization on the impact damage evolution and post-impact residual strength of hemp/epoxy, basalt/epoxy and their hybrid laminates, using mechanical and acoustic emission (AE) based analysis. To start with, the specimens were impacted by a drop weight impact tower machine at two...

Connecting human minds to various technological devices and applications through brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) affords intriguingly novel ways for humans to engage and interact with the world. Not only do BCIs play an important role in restorative medicine, they are also increasingly used outside of medical or therapeutic contexts (e.g.,...

In-memory computing is a promising computing paradigm due to its capability to alleviate the memory bottleneck. It has even higher potential when implemented usingmemristive devices ormemristors with various beneficial characteristics such as nonvolatility, high scalability, near-zero standby power consumption, high density, and CMOS...

Modeling is a promising approach to understand and predict the safety and efficiency of maritime traffic in ports and waterways. Different types of models have been developed over the years. Nevertheless, several important scientific challenges still remain. For instance, few models consider vessel behavior in ports and waterways under the...

New developments in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), such as big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and blockchain technology provide opportunities for businesses and government organisations to benefit from business-to-government (B2G) information sharing. For example, big data analytics might provide government organisations...

Hybrid halide perovskites are currently the most studied optoelectronic materials. They have been successfully employed as the active material in solar cells. Despite the achieved success of these materials, the properties of these hybrid frameworks of an inorganic lattice that includes organic cations are not fully understood. This is because...

Automatically optimizing robotic behavior to solve complex tasks has been one of<br/>the main, long-standing goals of Evolutionary Robotics (ER). When successful, this<br/>approach will likely fundamentally change the rate of development and deployment<br/>of robots in everyday life. Performing this optimization on real robots can be risky<br/...

Physical phenomena commonly observed in nature such as phase transitions, critical phenomena and metastability when studied froma mathematical point of view may give arise to a rich variety of behavior whose study becomes interesting in itself. In Chapter 1 we illustrate the phase transition phenomenon at low temperatures for one-dimensional...

To follow Moore’s law and the trend of devices to keep shrinking, the nanotechnology industry is challenged in finding a suitable technique for the mass production of integrated circuits with critical dimension in the sub-10 nm range. At the time this project started, EUV lithography, that employs light with a wavelength of 13.5 nm and thus...

In many aspects measurement of the α/β ratio has advantages over other methods. It provides higher precision and higher density of excitation than is available with Compton or photoelectric effect electrons. It has been shown that the α/β ratio follows the same trends and patterns as previously found for nonproportionality of electron/ gamma...

BACKGROUND: Single-cell transcriptomics is rapidly advancing our understanding of the cellular composition of complex tissues and organisms. A major limitation in most analysis pipelines is the reliance on manual annotations to determine cell identities, which are time-consuming and irreproducible. The exponential growth in the number of...

Introduction - Sustained high compliance with hand hygiene prior to patient contact in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) could reduce the spread of pathogens and incidence of bloodstream infections of preterm infants. These infections are associated with high mortality, morbidity and additional costs. Behaviour change interventions to...

Aberrations in optical systems, such as telescopes and microscopes, degrade the quality of the images that can be produced by these systems. For example, an object that is positioned out of focus produces a blurred image on a camera sensor and the turbulent air in the earth’s atmosphere reduces the imaging performance of telescopes. In this...
