In this master thesis the behaviour of a high speed railway track constructed on top of a pile foundation with settlements under a dynamic load has been analysed. Therefore, a model was developed in the software program DARTS, dynamic analysis of rail track structures. In DARTS the railway track was modelled by stiff and elastic layers, which...

In this master’s thesis we report on the characterization of spectral-multiplexed Bell-state measurement, a fundamental building block of spectral-multiplexed quantum repeater architecture. To test our hypothesis, we show an experimental setup that resembles an MDI-QKD setup, but multiplexed in frequency. The result is an increased secret key...

In the Netherlands, from time to time, remarkable bids can be observed among the results of tenders for large infrastructure projects with design and construction integrated in a single contract. This observation sparked interest in the decision-making processes that Dutch contractors apply. Contractors determine their bid amount with the mark...

During proton therapy treatments of lung tumors, interplay effects occur due to the simultaneous movement of the tumor due to patient’s respiratory breathing motion and the scanning pencil beam. These effects make delivering the dose to the target challenging. In this project the biological effects of breathing interplay for proton therapy...

In this report, we will focus on simulating galaxy observations with the Deep Spectroscopic High-redshift Mapper (DESHIMA). To do so, we will discuss and evaluate two main parts needed to accurately perform such a simulation:<br/><br/>Firstly, we will answer the question whether Time-dependent End-to-end Model for Post-process Optimization ...

Radar rainfall nowcasting stands for the prediction of rainfall amounts and intensities over the next 6 hours by means of statistical extrapolation of radar measurements. It is the principal ingredient for modern flood forecasting and early warning systems. Radar forecasts are generated by identifying and tracking rainfall cells in radar images...

The third biggest cause of death in the western world is the stroke which is often caused by an aneurysm. Recent literature proposes the Wall Shear Stress (WSS), the Time-Averaged Wall Shear Stress (TAWSS), the Oscillatory Shear Index (OSI) and the Transverse WSS (Trans-WSS) as possible factors influencing the initiation, growth and rupture of...

In this thesis, the design and implementation of a wireless communication module and an accompanying network are discussed. This wireless communication module is used in a device which communicates frost temperatures measured at orchards. The goal is to gather data on how fruit frost develops on orchards, and to warn a fruit farmer if it starts...

The future of our energy supply cannot continue to depend on the use of exhaustible fossil fuels. The successful transition to a society powered by renewable energy sources is one of the major challenges our current generation faces. Renewable systems will only fully establish themselves if high conversion efficiencies can be obtained at a...

Large scale, highly sensitive and specific diagnostic tools are needed to eliminate the transmission of schistosomiasis. This report expands upon the novel approach from M. Hoeboer and P.M. Nijman. Their Smart Optical Diagnostic Of Schistosomiasis device (SODOS), combining the principles of flow cytometry and digital holography, was able to...

With green energy well on its way to becoming a necessity rather than a commodity it is vital to not only focus on improving the source of energy, but also the efficiency of the eventual energy usage. Vapor-compression based household refrigerators are one of the most used electrical appliances in the common household and consume electricity...

For over a decade the use of bio inspired adhesives have been explored to achieve high reversable attachment on a wide range of surfaces. Based on the fibrillar adhesive toepads of geckos, many patterned adhesives have been produced that are able to form and preserve contact with rigid and smooth substrates. But on other types of surfaces, such...

The quantum internet will allow for communication via qubits, enabling for improved clock synchronization, blind quantum computing and quantum key distribution. Key components of such a quantum network are quantum repeaters, which help to overcome the exponential loss of photons in optical fibers. In this thesis we focus on one type of quantum...

Dipoles are all around us and the extent to which it is possible to distinguish two dipoles next to each other is a very important criterion for optical resolution. This report proposes that the resolution can be enhanced by placing a substrate with a film underneath the dipoles. This report specifically looks at the effect on the near and far...

Solar cells can play a key role in the transition towards a sustainable future. This transition is one of the major challenges our society faces during the coming decades. Development of high-efficiency photovoltaic solutions at reasonable costs will help accelerating the transformation of our energy system. In this respect, perovskite solar...

For this Master thesis the possibility was explored to use a monolayer of graphene as conductive layer, instead of sputtered titanium nitride (TiN), on 25 nm thick aluminium oxide and magnesium oxide membranes. These membranes will be used in a new and faster variant of a vacuum electron multiplier (e.g. the Photo Multiplier Tube (PMT)). These...

Offshore wind energy is considered as a powerful form of renewable energy generation. It plays an important role in accelerating the world’s transition towards sustainable energy sources and reducing carbon emissions by fossil fuels. This study focuses on the advancement of service planning, related to this renewable energy source, by...

Non-photochemical laser-induced nucleation (NPLIN) is a process where a crystalline phase is formed out of solution by exposure to a laser beam. In NPLIN, the nucleation probability is strongly dependent on the beam intensity and weakly dependent on the wavelength. NPLIN offers a feasible alternative to energy-intensive industrial...

The edge states in finite quantum Hall graphene have previously been shown to be valley polarised for zigzag and armchair edges. Assuming that the valley isospin is also conserved at a smooth normal-superconducting (NS) interface, theoretical research has previously predicted that plateaus in the longitudinal conductance are expected to occur in...
