In this work, we investigated the piezoelectric properties of BiFeO3-rich (1 − (y + x)) BiFeO3–y PbTiO3–x SrTiO3 (0.1 ≤ x ≤ 0.35; 0.1 ≤ y ≤ 0.3) bulk piezoceramics, as this system could potentially lead to the development of bulk piezoelectric ceramics that are suitable for high-temperature applications (>200 °C). Samples with various levels...

During its thirteen-year long mission in the Saturnian system, the Cassini spacecraft routinely used Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, for performing its gravity assists. The problem of determining the gravity field of Titan by performing a precise fit of Cassini’s orbit to the available Doppler tracking data was reviewed in this study. The...

The Saturnian moon Titan has a methane-based hydrological cycle similar to the water cycle on earth. This includes lakes, fluvial drainage networks, clouds and has evidence for precipitation of methane rain. Here we explore the impact of rainfall on Titan based on an analogue laboratory approach. While the composition and structure of the Titan...

High frame rate three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging would offer excellent possibilities for the accurate assessment of carotid artery diseases. This calls for a matrix transducer with a large aperture and a vast number of elements. Such a matrix transducer should be interfaced with an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for...

Gas giant satellites are generally believed to form in circumplanetary disks (CPDs): a gas disk containing solid particles that accumulate to form moons over time. The discoveries by the Cassini­ Huygens mission have led to a revision of the birth environment of the Saturnian system. The aim of this thesis is to constrain the formation...

We have developed, from scratch, a 3D radiative transfer code based on the Monte Carlo method, that fully takes into account the spherical shape of a planetary atmosphere, multiple scattering, and the polarized nature of light. Accounting for the sphericity of an atmosphere is important for the analysis of observations near the planetary limb...

Saturn's largest natural satellite, Titan, is an icy moon expected to harbour a liquid sub-surface water ocean capable of habiting extra-terrestrial life. The spherical harmonic expansion of the gravity field and the tidal Love number k2 can be used to estimate densities, depths, and phases of different layers from Titan’s interior structure,...

It is well known that disordered relaxor ferroelectrics exhibit local polar correlations. The origin of localized fields that disrupt long-range polar order for different substitution types, however, is unclear. Currently, it is known that substituents of the same valence as Ti<sup>4+</sup> at the B-site of barium titanate lattice produce...

Autonomously landing a spacecraft on the surface of a planetary body with a degree of precision in the order of meters is highly challenging. Over the course of time, the landing ellipse, defined as the region with a 99% likelihood of where a space vehicle will land, has improved steadily but currently still has dimensions in the order of...

The natural modes of Ontario Lacus surface oscillations, the largest lake in Titan’s southern hemisphere, are simulated and analyzed as they are potentially of broad interest in a variety of dynamical researches. We found that tidal forces are too low in frequency to excite the (barotropic) normal modes. Broadband wind forcing likely spans...

Nanosized Li<sub>4</sub>Ti<sub>5</sub>O<sub>12</sub> (LTO) materials enabling high rate performance suffer from a large specific surface area and low tap density lowering the cycle life and practical energy density. Microsized LTO materials have high density which generally compromises their rate capability. Aiming at combining the favorable...

During rapid high-temperature events, like a terrorist attack with radiological dispersal device, radiological material will be released into the environment. In these scenarios, the ratio between parent and daughter nuclides can be used for nuclear forensic investigations to determine the age of the used radioactive source. We have used fast...

In the context of the emergence of extraterrestrial oceanography, we adapted an existing oceanographic model, SLIM (www.climate.be/slim), to the conditions of Titan, a moon of Saturn. The tidal response of the largest southern lake at Titan’s surface, namely Ontario Lacus, is simulated. SLIM solves the 2D, depth-averaged shallow water equations...

Piezoelectric composites provide an opportunity to make robust piezoelectric sensors. These materials are based on piezoelectric ceramic powders or particles, which are dispersed in a polymer matrix. In most cases, piezoelectric composites use the same ceramic compositions as the ones used in piezoelectric ceramics. These compositions consist of...

Saturn’s moon Titan is unique in that it is the only moon in the Solar System with a significant atmosphere. Its atmosphere is thicker than the Earth’s and it contains several layers of hazes. Knowing the properties of the hazes is crucial for understanding the existence and evolution of this atmosphere and the dynamical processes that take...
