The chemistry of ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) is one of the main factors affecting its reactivity. Knowing the composition of GGBFS used in aged concrete may help understand its past performance and estimate remaining service life. It is well known that GGBFS generally react slower than cement clinker. This thesis proposes that...

We present a characterization of the sensitivity of TES X-ray micro-calorimeters to environmental conditions under frequency-domain multiplexing (FDM) readout. In the FDM scheme, each TES in a readout chain is in series with a LC band-pass filter and AC biased with an independent carrier at MHz range. Using TES arrays, cold readout circuitry and...

In the early 2030s, ESAs new X-ray observatory, Athena, is scheduled to be launched. It will carry two main<br/>instruments, one of which is the X-ray Integral Field Unit (X-IFU), an X-ray imaging spectrometer, which will consist of an array of several thousand transition-edge sensors (TESs) with a proposed energy resolution of 2.5 eV for photon...

Electron tomography is a powerful tool in materials science to characterize nanostructures in three dimensions (3D). In scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), the sample under study is exposed to a focused electron beam and tilted to obtain twodimensional (2D) projections at different angles; many imaging modes are available such as...

Al-Li alloys were introduced for the use in aerospace applications due to its many advantages over steel such as its low density, good thermal and electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance of these alloys. The current generation of Al-Li alloys were developed to replace the currently used AA2024 alloy in commercial airframes, military and...

Hexavalent chromium has been the industry standard for corrosion protection for many years. Its unsurpassed active corrosion inhibiting capabilities, its incredible versatility and its economic benefits made it a popular all-rounder. Nowadays the widely known toxic and carcinogenic nature have restricted its use within the European Union. More...

Two platinum precursors, Pt(CO)<sub>2</sub>Cl<sub>2</sub> and Pt(CO)<sub>2</sub>Br<sub>2</sub>, were designed for focused electron beam-induced deposition (FEBID) with the aim of producing platinum deposits of higher purity than those deposited from commercially available precursors. In this work, we present the first deposition experiments...

In this paper, we present a multichannel cross-modal fusion algorithm to combine two complementary modalities in electron tomography: X-ray spectroscopy and scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM). The former reveals compositions with high elemental specificity but low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), while the latter characterizes the...

Regularization has been introduced to electron tomography for enhancing the reconstruction quality. Since over-regularization smears out sharp edges and under-regularization leaves the image too noisy, finding the optimal regularization strength is crucial. To this end, one can either manually tune regularization parameters by trial and error...

In-situ sample holders with double-tilting capabilities are used to insert and position samples inside a transmission electron microscope for dynamic imaging. However, the performance of these sample holders, regarding energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) analysis, is not on par with their single-tilt counterparts. By analyzing the EDS...

The heritability of chronic hepatitis in the Labrador Retriever is studied with the aim of identifying the related gene mutation. Identification of cases and controls is largely based on instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) Cu determination in liver biopsies. The burden for these companion animals may be reduced if nail clippings and...

Radiation detectors are used in a variety of fields to sense X-rays and y-rays, visible, UV and IR photons, neutrons or charged particles. With their help, advanced medical diagnostics can be performed (e.g. X-ray radiography, computed tomography, fluoroscopy), material research can undergo a rapid development (e.g. X-ray microanalysis, X-ray...
