Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an important industrial cell factory and an attractive experimental model for evaluating novel metabolic engineering strategies. Many current and potential products of this yeast require acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl-CoA) as a precursor and pathways towards these products are generally expressed in its cytosol. The native...

In this report an overview of the techniques used to perform measurements on a Josephson radiation detector is given. This experiment could lead to the observation of Majorana bound states, which can be used to realize a topological quantum computer. Software for the plotting of data from one- and two-variable measurements was developed, with...

This report is written for partial fulfillment of two master degrees. Part A1 and A2 are written for the master Science Communication, whereas Part B is written for the master Biomedical Engineering. The goal of this thesis therefore was twofold. The goal of part A was to formulate recommendations on the responsible use of video recordings in...

When the size of a system is reduced to the scale of single particles, classical thermodynamics fails to predict the system’s behaviour as quantum fluctuations come into play. Recently it has been proven by Binder et all. [1] that theoretically a quantum battery, consisting of qubits, can be charged faster (i.e. with higher power per qubit) when...

Fossil fuels will run out in the foreseeable future. Out entire economic system is build upon fossil fuels and building up another base for this economic system is challenging. The only alternative for making materials that normally are derived from fossil fuels is the Bio-Based Economy. Materials in this way get made from biomass, such as sugar...

Communication in wind farm development is complex. A relationship between wind farm developers and residents which is based on reciprocity can lead to the trust and commitment necessary to deal with these complexities. The role of reciprocity is researched in a case study and a network model of reciprocity is developed. Implementing the findings...

Mol, J.W.N. (author)
In this project a numerical method has been designed for the coupling of a spherical and cubic grid while preserving a second order error accuracy. This is done to make accurate simulations of the many processes in nature that rely on mass or heat transfer between a solid surface and an adjacent fluid. The solid surface is often enlarged by...

"This thesis describes research that was executed as a combined Master Research Project in Applied Physics and Materials Science and Engineering, leading up to a double MSc degree." The (100)-oriented LaAlO3/SrTiO3 (LAO/STO) interface has been subject of intense study since the discovery of the two-dimensional electron system (2DES) in this...

Fast and precise in vivo tracking of nanoparticles or single cells could provide better understanding of drug and stem cell delivery. Present SPECT with traditional collimators lack sensitivity to achieve sufficiently high frame rates. In this project a multi-slit SPECT system with stationary detectors was designed to track nanoparticles with a...

Photoinduced charge transfer in organic materials is a fundamental process in various biological and technological areas. Donor-bridge-acceptor (DBA) molecules are used as model systems in numerous theoretical and experimental work to systematically study and unravel the underlying mechanisms of charge transfer. Despite the respectable successes...

In 2011, Royal Dutch Shell plc (Shell) took the final investment decision to develop the Prelude gas field using the world’s first Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) facility. FLNG poses some new technical challenges. For example, as the vessel is moored to the seabed, it is subject to movements induced by waves, winds and tides. Therefore,...

This thesis reports on advanced characterizations of giant magnetocaloric materials that show a first order magnetic phase transition (FOMT). The results are of great interest not only for the design of new magnetic refrigerants, but also for a better understanding of the FOMT. This thesis paves the way for further developments and understanding...

In the past few decades, concerns on climate change have contributed to the development of biotechnological alternatives for petrochemical processes. In order to make these processes economically competitive, there has been an intensive search for improved, more efficient production organisms. In the past decade, genetic engineering of...

Quantitative experiments with the ability to systematically probe the system under investigation are a key element to gain insight and understanding. We present a novel and simple technique enabling the maintenance and controlled perturbation of experimental conditions of microorganisms from bacteria to nematodes. Polyacrylamide-based devices...

This paper presents a mixed methods study in which 77 students and 3 teachers took part, that investigated the practice of Learning by Design (LBD). The study is part of a series of studies, funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, that aims to improve student learning, teaching skills and teacher training. LBD uses the...
