Conventional techniques for audio monitoring, including Passive Audio Monitoring (PAM), often call for the use of environmentally unsustainable and challenging equipment. This among other limitations can disrupt the very environment that is meant to be studied and may also limit the ability to observe an ecosystem in its natural state. <br/><br/...

Airspeed information plays a crucial role in the takeoff, flight, and landing processes in animal flyers and aerial vehicles. Among the aerial vehicles, Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles (FWMAVs) represent the novel engineering approach of learning and mimicking animal flyers in the past two decades. A few prototypes of various sizes and...

Drug efficacy and side effects are significantly impacted by the first-pass metabolism, a sequence of events that occurs in the stomach and the liver after oral ingestion. Accurate prediction of this mechanism is crucial for a faster and more cost-efficient drug development process. Replicating the first-pass metabolism in vitro using standard...

Engineered Heart Tissues (EHTs) are a valuable approach enabled by Organ-on-Chip (OoC) technology to model human cardiac tissue. These small microfluidic devices allow the culture and development of living cardiac cells in 3D structures, to reproduce tissue dynamics and functionality in-vitro, thus fostering the development of new and more...

Cardiorenal Syndrome (CRS) is a multi-organ disease characterized by a reciprocal pathological interaction between the heart and kidneys during acute or chronic injury. Yet, a complete understanding of the underlying bi-directional pathophysiological mechanisms is lacking, hence obscuring effective diagnostic strategies, patient stratification...

Organ-on-chip (OoC) is invented around 10 years ago which is used to do pre-clinical drug test without live animals. Physiological microenvironment of different cells can be mimicked in OoC. In order to better form of tissue in OoC, mechanical stimulation can offer through different ways including pneumatic, thermal, and electric stimulations....

Modular quantum computer chip based on spin qubits in diamond will enable an increased connectivity, a high fidelity, and a low error-rate when the number of qubits increases. The high-quality diamond substrates have the maximum size in the order of mm2, preventing use of advanced semiconductor manufacturing line. Therefore, for a large-scale...

Currently, preclinical drug testing and disease modelling are based on static cell cultures and animal models that often fail at predicting the human pathophysiology. Alternatively, Organ-on-Chips (OoCs), dynamic microphysiological platforms, can be employed to recapitulate organ functions and mimic the cell's microphysiological environment....

The overarching goal of Engineered Heart Tissues (EHTs) is to develop functional 3D heart tissues in vitro with the potential to find drug targets, identify drug toxicity and predict the effects of the drugs in the body. This 3D model of the cardiac tissue consists of a bunch of cells, self-assembled around specific anchoring points the main aim...

Cardiac cells derived from stem cells exhibit cellular contractions when cultured in vitro. They can be integrated with polymeric platforms consisting of micropillars, which act as anchors and pre-load for engineered heart tissue (EHT). The biomechanical response is often characterized using optical microscopy to track the displacement of pillar...

Silicon accelerometers used in the automotive industry should be improved in resolution and accuracy. Exploiting quantum effects in diamond to improve sensing accuracy is a popular technique for nanoscale sensing applications. This thesis will present a new design concept for an accelerometer using these quantum effects for sensing on a...

Graphene is an attractive material to be used for pressure sensors due to its thinness, electrical conductivity, and potential high gauge factor. One of the issues with processing graphene is the scalability, which is largely limited by the transfer process that is required for graphene deposited by chemical vapour deposition (CVD). In this work...
