Transitioning of energy intensive industries (EIIs) towards more sustainability forms an important building block in achieving the Paris climate goals. Silicon carbide (SiC) production is such an EII, though it has not yet received much attention in systemic research. This thesis attempts to fill this gap by studying how SiC flows through the...

Silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells are one of the most promising PV technologies nowadays due to high photoconversion efficiencies and low manufacturing costs. However, standard front/back-contacted (FBC) solar cells feature a front metal grid that brings shading to the front side of the devices, which limits the conversion efficiency of...

A next step in the energy transition is to produce green fuels from sunlight. One way to achieve this is via high voltage photovoltaic (PV) devices which can directly drive electrolysis reactions to produce hydrogen or other chemical fuels. Group IV based multijunction (MJ) PV devices are a candidate to function as these high voltage devices.<br...

Medium voltage cable joints are expected to function for 30-40 years after successful installation. To optimize and improve the design of these joints, it is essential to find out the changes that the components inside a cable joint go through. In this thesis, the effects of accelerated thermal ageing on electrical and mechanical properties of...

Dry adhesives can reattach to surfaces due to the reversible bond made by Van der Waals forces. These adhesives can therefore be used as gripping surface that has a high frictional load capacity, independent of the grasping force. In many grippers, the adhesive surface is often pressed into contact with another surface (’substrate’) in an open...

The mass production of lithium-ion batteries used in, for instance, electric vehicles led to significant cost reductions. However, concerns are emerging about the availability of resources and the environmental impact of the production. Metal-air batteries use more resource-efficient materials and potentially have higher energy densities than...
