In collaboration with the technical university of Twente, Leiden Probe Microscopy (LPM) has built an instrument to study thin film oxide growth during pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Thin filmed (perovskite) oxides have evoked an interest of material scientist, because they inhibit physical properties such as superconductivity, ferromagnetism,...

A new concept was developed to improve current airpot designs for vibration isolation solutions. The concept is based on an additional piston, or add-on, with certain characteristics, that is to be incorporated into an existing airpot-design. The effect of this add-on will passively improve the vibration isolation performance of the airpot. This...

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017 went to the development of cryo-electron microscopy, which contributed to the discovery of new cells and viruses, the diagnosis of unknown diseases, the mapping of human genomes and the manufacturing of semiconductors. Cryo Correlative light and electron microscopy (Cryo-CLEM), is the combination of using...

Vanderlande Industries makes sorting machines for the parcel industry. One of these sorting machines is a sliding shoe sorter; the posisorter. Which ensures a positive, form closed, sorting action. Right now, the posisorter can handle 24.000 parcels per hour and is with that the market leader in high capacity sorting machines. <br/><br/>However,...

The application of actively controlled micrometer precision positioning stages in products that are accessible to start-ups, individual consumers or third world countries is currently limited by their price and size. To solve this problem, the use of low-cost and compact components in stages is investigated. Earlier research done in the MSD...

This report presents a new filter wheel design for use in space-based optical systems. The design integrates a hybrid linear stepper motor into the wheel's rim to generate rotation, leading to a Rotating Hybrid Linear Stepper Motor (RHLSM). Unpowered this motor generates a holding force that can keep the wheel in position during system...

Proton therapy is an increasingly popular form of radiotherapy that uses high energy protons for the treatment of cancer. It results in a lower integral dose than the classical photon radiotherapy. This makes it suitable for the treatment of tumors close to critical organs such as in the head and neck. To minimize alignment errors the head and...

To push the performance of the next generation Ultimaker 3D printers further, a new positioning system is required to improve the printing speed, print accuracy and print repeatability. The expectation is that a linear motor positioning system will perform significantly better than a conventional belt driven system. For this reason, the aim of...

Actuator self-heating limits achievable force and can cause unwanted structural deformations that adversely affect the accuracy in precision actuation systems. This is especially apparent in quasi-static applications that require the actuator to maintain a stable position over an extended period. As a solution, we propose the use of Tunable...

Chronic total occlusion (CTO) occurs in approximately a third of all patients with coronary artery disease and is one of the most challenging types of conditions to treat. Minimally invasive methods like percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) show a high treating potential as well as low costs, short hospital stay and fast recovery. However,...

In this MSc thesis report, the process of developing a laser aiming solution for the purpose of bird repelling will be described. This process consists roughly of five phases: Setting up requirements, generating concepts, picking and developing a single concept, building and finally testing this concept.<br/><br/>The current laser aiming...

The resolution of ground-based telescopes is limited by the blurring caused by Earth’s turbulent atmosphere. Adaptive Optics (AO) is a technique used to correct atmospheric distortions, restoring images to diffraction-limited resolution. The main element of an AO system is the Deformable Mirror (DM), which compensates the distortions of the...

To meet the growing demand for high precision measurement equipment, sensors with sub-nanometer resolution are becoming readily available. Because of its high precision, traceability and ease of use, the interferometer stands out for high precision measurements. However, the laser beam of an interferometer can be influenced by temperature and...
