We present characterizations of few-layer titanium trisulfide (TiS3) flakes which, due to their reduced in-plane structural symmetry, display strong anisotropy in their electrical and optical properties. Exfoliated few-layer flakes show marked anisotropy of their in-plane mobilities reaching ratios as high as 7.6 at low temperatures. Based on...

The bacterial community structure of 10 different wastewater treatment systems and their influents has been investigated through pyrosequencing, yielding a total of 283486 reads. These bioreactors had different technological configurations: conventional activated sludge (CAS) systems and very highly loaded A-stage systems. A-stage processes are...

This thesis is part of the research on the thermodynamic properties of thorium salt and aims to provide a C++11 code to simulate fuel salt flow at various temperatures around a settling sphere and inside a container. This thesis should form the basis of a C++11 implementation on fuel salt flow in the Molten Salt Fast Reactor using the Lattice...

We develop a computational method that can efficiently simulate Landau levels in quantum heterostructures, by reducing the problems dimensionality. We then apply this to a GaSb/InAs/AlSb broken gap quantum well in the trivial and inverted regimes. This heterostructure can be tuned into a 2DTI phase, and has possible applications in topological...

The resource theory approach is a recently developed framework used in the study of thermodynamics for finite sized quantum systems. A simple way to describe how a quantum system evolves under energy-preserving unitaries while interacting with thermal reservoirs, has been formulated in the framework of thermal operations. Despite the conceptual...

The effect of new dopants on the luminescence properties of two types of scintillator crystals have been investigated. First, the luminescence properties of sodium iodine (NaI) crystals doped with thallium (Tl) and co-doped with Sulpher (S) and selenium (Se) were determined. Tl occupies cation sites whereas S and Se are supposed to occupy anion...

Magnetic Drug Targeting could be used to cure atherosclerosis in the Carotid Artery. The idea of this method is that magnetized drug particles are added to the blood in the artery while applying a magnetic field at the location where the drugs is desired to enter the tissue. Therefore the concentration increases at the location of the...

The Kernel Polynomial Method (KPM) is a method to approximate any function as a polynomial of finite order. In this research the KPM will be used to approximate the density of states and expectation values of physical observables in a tight binding system. To be able to use the KPM a tight binding Hamiltonian is obtained by using the python...

Synthesis gas, or syngas, is among the most common products of biomass gasification and pyrolysis process. Syngas is produced by various fuels such as coal, biomass and any other hydrocarbon material. The principal use of syngas is in gas turbines as a fuel. It may also be used as the constructive material in other applications, such as methanol...

Cogenra company has created a low concentration PV/Thermal system that produces both thermal energy and electricity simultaneously, mainly for commercial and industrial applications. The realization of a system that combines photovoltaic modules, solar thermal collectors and concentrating mirrors makes it a complicated system to study. So far,...

In this study, a unique combination of concepts such as hospitality, digitalisation and responsible research and innovation is brought together in the Responsible Digital Hospitality Quality Scale. This conceptual tool is more than a website benchmark or customer satisfaction measurement tool. It measurably defines responsible digital...

Background: Acetic acid, released during hydrolysis of lignocellulosic feedstocks for second generation bioethanol production, inhibits yeast growth and alcoholic fermentation. Yeast biomass generated in a propagation step that precedes ethanol production should therefore express a high and constitutive level of acetic acid tolerance before...

Altered flow and mass transfer patterns are thought to play an important role in the early onset of atherosclerosis. A disturbed wall shear distribution and the prevalence of hypoxic (low oxygen tension) are specifically believed to be atherogenic factors, which can function as a positive feedback on the development of atherosclerosis. In this...

In this research computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used to model a vertical axis wind turbine. Well known turbulence models | i.e. the k-epsilon and k-omega SST model | are used and compared in their performance against each other and a set of experimental data. The formal research question is "What models are available for the simulation of...

Electronic devices are downsizing at a rapid pace and since the 1990s, single molecules have been studied as candidates for such devices. This thesis focusses on a new approach to simulate the electric current through these molecular devices. We followed the approach of Hod [17], which is based on the time propagation of the density matrix and...

The aim of this report is to investigate the inelastic tunneling current that would be measured during an inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy experiment performed on a one dimensional chain of magnetic atoms. A chain consisting of n magnetic iron atomswith spin 2 has been examined. The spins of the iron atoms in the chain have been treated...

This paper presents the mathematical modelling and design of a flat plate photoreactor with a fixed film photocatalyst to degrade phenol. Phenol was used as target pollutant as it is one of the most studied contaminants in photocatalysis and it is present in many of the wastewater streams containing pesticides, drugs, and dyes which cannot be...

Timepix chip detectors, being quantum area pixel electron detectors, provide greater incident particle energy specificity and are less noise sensitive than traditional integrating electron detector systems. Moreover, the charge sharing properties of the Timepix detector provide a potential opportunity for superresolution, increasing the...

Due to the increasing problem of cardiovascular diseases, the demand for diagnosing measurements is also increasing. These measurements should be cheap, nondestructive, accurate and real-time. Measurements like these already exist in the form of photoplethysmography (PPG). However, these measurements make use of a scalar quantity which throws...
