We perform a numerical optimisation of the hardware parameters of an atomic-ensemble-based single repeater setup. The setup operates on a real-life fiber network connecting the cities Delft and Eindhoven. Besides this network, the setup encompasses photon pair sources, quantum memories, single photon detectors, and 50:50 beam splitters. The...

The identification of time-varying, adaptive behaviour of a human operator in basic manual control tasks is undoubtedly under development since most methodologies only account for time-invariant systems. Previous authors have proved that estimation techniques based on ARX structures can generally identify the HO model parameters. Nonetheless,...

This project develops a channel estimation technique for millimeter wave (mmWave) communication systems. Our method exploits the sparse structure in mmWave channels for low training overhead and accounts for the phase errors in the channel measurements due to phase noise at the oscillator. Specifically, in IEEE 802.11ad/ay-based mmWave systems,...

This thesis is part of a larger ongoing research project at the TU Delft regarding structural glass as a novel construction material. Here, the focus is directed towards the casting of glass to create complex free-form geometries. Thus far, only smaller components have been created, but a multitude of previous student work explored how the...

Gastroschisis, a congenital abdominal wall defect located to the right of the intact umbilical cord (UC), results in the herniation of fetal abdominal organs into the amniotic cavity without a protective membrane covering these structures. Complex gastroschisis (CG), comprising approximately 10% of cases, is associated with significantly higher...

Background: Knee Osteoarthritis (KOA) is the predominant form of osteoarthritis, and its incidence is anticipated to rise due to an ageing and increasingly overweight population. Altering the Foot Progression Angle (FPA) has demonstrated potential in mitigating the progression of KOA. Wearable feedback methods, especially those utilising single...

This project focuses on the development of a novel surgical tool designed to facilitate internal tissue closure in minimally invasive surgery, specifically targeting mesenteric defect closures during Gastric Bypass procedures. <br/>The tool incorporates innovative staples and barbed sutures, distinct from conventional methods and existing market...

Today, Istanbul’s urban spatial structure has been dominated by three phenomena: informal housing, uncoordinated and uncontrolled urban intensification, and mass housing projects. It stands out particularly in the case of Kayabaşı neighborhood located on Istanbul’s Western periphery. Rigid, orthogonal layout of each group of blocks gives a dose...

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has several advantages over conventional surgery, including reduced damage to the body, less pain, lower infection risk, and faster recovery. However, MIS reduces the amount of space in which clinicians can operate within the body. This often forces them to work around delicate anatomical structures. A new type...

Flexure mechanisms are widely utilized in precision mechanisms, but their practical use is limited by three major factors, namely restricted range of motion, parasitic motion, and significant reduction in support stiffness when deflected. To address this limitation, in this research the potential of variable thickness flexures in minimizing the...

As connections between customers and suppliers become increasingly complex, the design of transport networks is under growing pressure to achieve efficiency. In response to this challenge, this paper proposes a service network design that takes into account both the forward flows from a production facility to a customer and the returning flows...

In biology, phylogenetics is the study of the evolutionary history of and relations between e.g. species. Such data are often represented in trees. Remarkably, trees lack the representation of reticulation events, such as hybridization, while such events are believed to be important. One of the reasons why trees are widely used, is the enormous...

Highly accurate time sources, such as Cesium-based or GPS clocks, are the best candidates to provide a correct notion of time, but are too costly and impractical for implementation in every modern digital device. Ubiquitously, (crystal) oscillators are employed instead. To maintain a shared notion of time, the offsets and drift/jitter have to be...

Magnetic Particle Tracking (MPT) is a relatively new non-invasive measurement technique which is often used to study dense granular flow. Its basic principle relies on tracking the movement of a single magnetic tracer by means of measuring the magnetic field strength at a suitable distance from the tracer. By assumption of a magnetic dipole...

Conventional medical instruments are not capable of passing through tortuous anatomy as required for natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery due to their rigid shaft designs. Nevertheless, developments in minimally invasive surgery are pushing medical devices to become more dexterous. Amongst devices with controllable flexibility, so...

In the view of climate change, understanding and managing effects on coastal areas and adjacent cities is essential. Permanent Laser Scanning (PLS) is a successful technique to not only observe notably sandy coasts incidentally or once every year, but (nearly) continuously over extended periods of time. The collected point cloud observations...

Steam generating heat pumps show great potential for reducing carbon emissions in the industrial sector. However, predicting their performance is challenging as the exergy destruction of e.g., compressors and expansion valves increases with the temperature lift and condenser temperature. With over seventy design improvements mentioned in the...

It is common practice to use the well-known concept of the minimal detectable bias (MDB) to assess the performance of statistical testing procedures. However, such procedures are usually applied to a null and a set of multiple alternative hypotheses with the aim of selecting the most likely one. Therefore, in the DIA method for the detection,...

In laparoscopic surgery, quality of haptic feedback is reduced compared to conventional surgery, leading to unintentional tissue damage during grasping. From the perspective of haptics, poor mechanical design of laparoscopic instrument joints induces friction and a nonlinear actuation-tip force relation. In this study, a novel laparoscopic...
