The abundance of methane has led to a strong interest to use methane as a feedstock in the chemical industry. One of the main challenges is the initial activation of the methane molecule. In this thesis, heterogeneous catalysts for two different methane conversion processes are investigated. Firstly, the deactivation of supported Ni catalysts...

Vibration energy harvesting has proven to be a durable source of energy for a wide variety of applications, however not all of the positions these applications are placed at are suitable for conventional vibration energy harvesting. For some of these applications a frequency up-converted energy harvester could increase the power harvested. These...

Schema therapy is a psychotherapy for treatment of personality disorders and other psychological disorders. An important element of schema therapy is determining a patient's schema modes, a concept central to deciding the treatment approach. The objective of this work was to evaluate whether assessment of these schema modes is possible through a...

People with diabetes often show symptoms heavily associated with depression, but these symptoms are often caused by the burden of daily diabetes management. The negative feelings caused by this burden are defined as "diabetes burnout''. Some of these negative feelings are caused by social issues. People with diabetes often resort to online...

The rapid development of quantum information processors has accelerated the demand for technologies that enable quantum networking. One promising approach uses mechanical resonators as an intermediary between microwave and optical fields. Signals from a superconducting, topological, or spin qubit processor can then be converted coherently to...

Background: High quality serious illness communication requires good understanding of patients’ values and beliefs for their treatment at end of life. Natural Language Processing (NLP) offers a reliable and scalable method for measuring and analyzing value- and belief-related features of conversations in the natural clinical setting. We use a...

We have defined an interdisciplinary program for training a new generation of researchers who will be ready to leverage the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based models and techniques even by non-expert users. The final goal is to make AI self-explaining and thus contribute to translating knowledge into products and services for economic...

Identifying the pattern of delta morphological change under decreasing sediment flux due to dam construction is essential for sustainable management in such densely populated coastal areas. In this study, we investigated the morphological processes of the Yangtze mouth bar and prodelta based on bathymetric data on a decadal-interannual scale ...

Results of a 2-D transport model for a gas diffusion electrode performing CO2 reduction to CO with a flowing catholyte are presented, including the concentration gradients along the flow cell, spatial distribution of the current density and local pH in the catalyst layer. The model predicts that both the concentration of CO2 and the buffer...

This article describes a discrete-time zoom analog-to-digital converter (ADC) intended for audio applications. It uses a coarse 5-bit SAR ADC in tandem with a fine third-order delta-sigma modulator (ΔΣM) to efficiently obtain a high dynamic range. To minimize its over-sampling ratio (OSR) and, thus, its digital power consumption, the...

In cavity optomechanics, optical fields are coupled to the displacement of mechanical resonators. While it is interesting to study fundamental aspects of this interaction, it is the ability to link this mechanical displacement to various other degrees of freedom that inspires many applications in the field. In these applications, the mechanical...

Many games played on the mobile phone have become large in download size. A significant portion thereof is due to the many textures that are involved. However, many games have art styles that include clean drawings with gradients, solid colors, and hard lines. We observe that these images’ areas may be more efficiently described by interpolating...

This paper analyzes high-frequency interactions between a Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) and High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) grid resonances by studying their effect on the system stability. The recent appearance of converter-related instabilities due to high-frequency oscillations at the converter's ac side raises concerns about whether...

Boost-type power factor correction (PFC) rectifiers can be used in, for example, battery charging systems for Electric Vehicles (EVs). Conventionally available three-phase PFC rectifiers are limited to output 1/3 of the rated power when connected to a single-phase mains. This work presents the research into the single-phase operation of the...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) has been heavily researched and developed over the last decade. However, no commercial scale for OTEC has been reached yet. OTEC is a clean and renewable source of energy which utilizes the seawater temperature difference between the upper and deep ocean layers to generate electricity. The heat exchangers...
