Nuclear pore complexes acts as a gatekeeper for molecular transport between the nucleus and the cytoplasm in eukaryotic cells. The central NPC channel is filled with intrinsically disordered FG domains (phenylalanine (F), glycine (G)) that are responsible for the fascinating selectivity of NPCs, for which the underlying mechanism is still under...

Cordova Chavez, M.E. (author)
Crude oil, coal and gas are currently the main resources of energy in the world. The World Energy Outlook claimed in 2007 that the major source of energy (about 84%) would still be generated from fossil fuels in 2030. By these projections, the world's fossil fuel reserves will be consumed within a few decades, making it necessary to have a well...

The addition of microsized fillers to polymers, in order to tailor their properties, has been extensively used in many industrial applications since the 1960s. The same approach applies to the field of electrical insulation. Epoxy resin is a widely used polymer in the electrical power sector, but it is usually loaded with microsized fillers,...

The recently developed isogeometric analysis (IGA) was aimed, from the start, at integrating computer aided design (CAD) and analysis. This synthesis of geometry and analysis has naturally led to renewed interest in developing structural shape optimization. The advantages of using isogeometric analysis in shape optimization are embodied in its...

Adhesives based on thermoset polymers are used as thermal and electrical interfaces. These adhesives are filled with different particles in order to meet the requirements of heat transfer and electrical properties. Due to the reliability requirements of automotive applications, they are required to have excellent bulk and interface properties....

In many applications of high voltage engineering, electrical and thermal stresses increase due to an ongoing decrease of product dimensions. In particular, the electrical industry is interested in applying nanofluids in transformers to be able to decrease transformer size and weight. The requirement for nanofluids is to enhance the electrical...

Haverkate, L.A. (author)
This thesis explores some fundamental aspects of charge carrier transport at the nanoscale. The study is divided in two parts. In the first part, the structural, dynamical and vibrational properties of discotic liquid crystals are studied in relation to the potential of these self-assembled ‘mesophases’ to form molecular conducting wires....

Nano-textured interfaces between two media of different refractive indices scatter light. The angular distribution and the intensity of the scattered light are deter- mined by the geometry of the nano-textures and the difference of the refractive indices of the two media. Thin-film silicon solar cells (TFSSC), which convert sunlight directly...

The transition to sustainable energy sources is inevitable. A possible future scenario could be the hydrogen economy, where the fuel cell plays an important role in the conversion of hydrogen back to electricity. The technology behind the fuel cell however, still has significant room for improvement. A next step would be the realization of so...
