Dutch homes use 70% of their total energy consumption for domestic hot water purposes and space heating. Currently, this energy is yielded through the use of natural gas. In order to meet Dutch Climate Agreement goals, which were agreed upon December 2018, Low Temperature District Heating (LTDH) is expected as being the most promising...

Li-ion batteries have major disadvantages. One of which is the growth of dendrites (in case Li metal based batteries), a major safety issue. In addition to that, Li-ion batteries also use elements such as Co, and Li, which are regionally scarce. Mg-ion batteries are one of the alternatives for Li-ion batteries. However, the electrolyte and...

The low contrast of biomolecules in TEM has been a great obstacle for their structure determination and hence to the understanding of their structure-function relation. Historically, single DNA strands remained one the most difficult classes of biomolecular specimens to image, due to low electron scattering strength of its constituent elements....

This research is based on a new law relating quality assurance in construction that was proposed in 2016. The main aim of the legislative proposal is to improve the quality of construction by privatising the way of assessing quality on the basis of the Building Decree. The problem is that the contractor gets more responsibility in this process...

This thesis focuses on improving the phase noise and power efficiency
of millimeter-wave (mm-wave) frequency synthesizers in nanometer CMOS.
The mm-wave frequency spectrum is widely adopted in various upcoming
volume commercial wireless applications. These new applications provide
more interconnection between the physical and...

The aim of this thesis is to study the nature of photoexcitations and carrier multiplication in low-dimensional semiconductors using ultrafast spectroscopy techniques. Ongoing from a macroscopic scale to a nanoscale, the electronic and
optical properties of a material become size dependent, and differ significantly from their bulk...

This graduation report describes the development of a personalised and customised knitwear experience for the company STRIKKS. The goal was to design an interactive experience that will sell personalised knitwear in a retail environment. In this experience an accurate display of the garment should give the customer insights into how the garment...

Although many studies have been performed on porous absorbable iron scaffolds created by the space holder method, no studies have considered the influence of variations in space holders on absorbable scaffolds. The present study aimed to clarify the effects of space holder particle size and volume fraction, on the pore structure, resultant...

Currently, cities are in the midst of a transportation transition, namely, from human-driven to driverless vehicles. Because of the rapid development of technology, many systems are being automated or even becoming autonomous. Autonomous means that the system is able to perform each task automatically without any human intervention. Much...

Global warming, continuous demand on energy from fossil fuels as a limited natural resource, and costumers’ high expectations regarding product quality are three global challenges that the automotive industry is facing. Fuel consumption reduction has a significant impact on preserving fossil fuels, lowering fossil fuel dependency and the CO2...

River discharge is an essential parameter in morphodynamic modelling. It proves to be highly variable in both time and space. In this thesis the impact of the schematisation of time-dependent discharge series on morphodynamic change is studied. The impact is governed by several factors such as the long-term discharge statistics, and both short-...

Regular maintainance dredging is a large expense to the Port of Rotterdam, therefore the installation of sediment traps is considered. By increasing the bathymetry locally, an increase of local accumulation is expected and a decrease deeper in the harbour basin. This thesis describes the functioning of sediment traps in a stratified tidally...

Analog-to-digital converters are important blocks in any electronic system which act as a bridge between analog signals and digital processors. The conventional SAR ADC employs a binary search algorithm and has emerged as the most suitable solution for low-power applications, due to its excellent power efficiency. The proposed ADC architecture...

Smart temperature sensors can be used for the temperature compensation of micro-electromechanical (MEMS) frequency references. From the different types of CMOS temperature sensors, resistor-based sensors are currently the most energy-efficient. However, compared with bipolar transistor (BJT)-based temperature sensors, resistors suffer from...

Daytime radiative cooling (DRC) is a very novel passive cooling method for buildings that utilises the recent technological advance in wavelength selective-emittance material research and takes advantage of a transparency window that exists in the atmosphere between 8 and 13 μm. Application of DRC in locations where warm weather prevails for...

In the past decade, the interest in collaborative materials development projects with designers and materials scientists has gained momentum. Designers’ involvement in early materials development is expected to inform the development process about the potentials of a new material, beyond the values of efficiency and convenience. This paper-based...
