Photoinduced charge transfer (CT) is a fundamental photophysical process that prevails in nature but also plays a pivotal role in various technological fields. This thesis describes spectroscopic studies on photoinduced CT in donor-bridge-acceptor (DBA) systems and their derivatives. Throughout this work, we employ femtosecond transient...

Understanding the interplay between the kinetics and energetics of photophysical processes in perovskite-chromophore hybrid systems is crucial for realizing their potential in optoelectronics, photocatalysis, and light-harvesting applications. By combining steady-state optical characterizations and transient absorption spectroscopy, we have...

A series of three perylenemonoimide-p-oligophenylene-dimethylaniline molecular dyads undergo photoinduced charge separation (CS) with anomalous distance dependence as a function of increasing donor-acceptor (DA) distances. A comprehensive experimental and computational investigation of the photodynamics in the donor-bridge-acceptor (DBA)...

3D hybrid perovskites (APbX<sub>3</sub>) have made a significant impact on the field of optoelectronic materials due to their excellent performance combined with facile solution deposition and up-scalable device fabrication. Nonetheless, these materials suffer from environmental instability. To increase material stability, the organic cation ...

A singular rail or wheel surface irregularity, such as a squat, insulation joint or wheel flat, can cause large wheelrail impact force. Both the magnitude and frequency content of the impact force need to be correctly modelledbecause they are closely related to the formation, deterioration and detection of such irregularities. In this paper,we...

Donor-bridge-acceptor systems based on boron dipyrromethene (BODIPY) are attractive candidates for bio-imagining and sensing applications because of their sensitivity to temperature, micro-viscosity and solvent polarity. The optimization of the properties of such molecular sensors requires a detailed knowledge of the relation between the...

To further understand the optoelectronic properties of metal halide perovskites, we investigate sub-bandgap absorption in methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) films. Charge carrier dynamics are studied using time-resolved microwave conductivity measurements using sub-bandgap excitation. From changes in the decay dynamics as a function of...

This study evaluates the degradation of wheels and rails at railway crossings. The evaluation method is composed of 1) finite element simulation of dynamic wheel/crossing interaction and 2) multi-criteria analysis of wheel/rail degradation in terms of yield behavior, rolling contact fatigue (RCF) and wear. With the aid of this method, we...

Despite intense research into the optoelectronic properties of metal halide perovskites (MHPs), sub-bandgap absorption in MHPs remains largely unexplored. Here we recorded two-photon absorption spectra of MHPs using the time-resolved microwave conductivity technique. A two-step upward trend is observed in the two-photon absorption spectrum...

This dissertation aims to gain a better understanding of the dynamic wheel-rail interaction at crossings, including characterizing the wheel-rail contact behavior, evaluating the performance of crossings under traffic loads and monitoring the health condition of the structure. The first part of this dissertation focuses on an in-depth analysis...

In this paper, we present a method for evaluating the performance of railway crossing rails after long-term service. The method includes 1) 3D profile and hardness measurements; 2) finite element simulation of wheel/rail interaction; and 3) numerical prediction of rail degradation. We conducted a case study on a crossing that had been in service...

This paper describes an approach for characterizing the dynamic behavior of the vehicle/track interaction at railway crossings. In the approach, we integrate in situ axle box acceleration (ABA) measurements with roving-accelerometer hammer tests to evaluate the influence of train speed, train moving direction (facing and trailing directions),...

This paper presents an analysis of the transient contact solutions of wheel-rail frictional rolling impacts calculated by an explicit finite element model of the wheel-insulated rail joint (IRJ) dynamic interaction. The ability of the model to simulate the dynamic behavior of an IRJ has been validated against a comprehensive field measurement in...

This study compares various assumptions in different models to assess their capabilities to model vehicle-track interactions up to 2 kHz at a single rail-top defect. Field measurement data are used to evaluate discrepancies. The characteristics of contact force and axle-box acceleration (ABA) are first identified and qualitatively correlated...

In this paper, we investigate the capability of an axle box acceleration (ABA) system to evaluate the degradation at railway crossings. For this purpose, information from multiple sensors, namely, ABA signals, 3D rail profiles, Global Positioning System (GPS) and tachometer recordings, was collected from both nominal and degraded crossings....

Though numerical models based on multi-body dynamics (MBD) are often used to simulate the vehicle-track interaction at crossing impact, their relative capabilities and accuracy were not discussed. This paper aims to investigate the influence of wheelset flexibility on the result of crossing impact simulation in the frequency range 0–500 Hz. Two...
