Over two million bone grafts are performed worldwide, each year. The preferred method is using autografts, but there are two important downsides. There is often insufficient tissue to harvest and the scar at the harvesting side is painfull for the patient. Therefore there exists a great need to improve synthetic grafts.<br/><br/>Traditionally,...

The exposure of certain carbon steels to sour environments can result in severe hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) damage in the oil and gas industry. Current mitigation techniques in this field have low reliability or are not able to provide long-term protection against such damage. Recent advancements in thermal spray technology have resulted in...

Aluminium alloy AA2024-T3 is a lightweight and damage tolerant material, and is therefore often used in aerospace applications. However, this alloy is difficult to weld using conventional fusion welding techniques due to defects caused by the meld pool.<br/> <br/>Friction stir welding (FSW) was developed by The Welding Institute (TWI) in 1991 in...

Trivalent chromium (Cr(III)) is one of the most promising non-toxic replacements for hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) coatings in the steel packaging industry. The application of a chromium layer to packaging steel is essential for providing a protective layer on the steel packaging’s external surface area, which prevents corrosion during its use....

The presence of harmful pollutants and toxic pathogens in water is a risk to both living beings and the environment. Water treatment plays a crucial role in the removal of these contaminants through different stages of filtration. Among the existing pollutants, a family of per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) escapes from all treatment...

Due to their simple structure and the possibility for in situ doping, light emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) are shaping up to be a cheap and easily produced alternative to LEDs. To date, little research has been done to combine the luminescent properties of colloidal quantum dots (QDs) with the LEC concept. In this thesis, steps are taken...
