Bouwmeester, D. (author)
This dissertation centers around two topics: graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) and superconductors. The aim of this thesis is to work towards combine these two topics, in order to study how superconducting correlations interact with magnetic correlations within graphene nanoribbons, such as the magnetic edge states present in the zigzag edges of...

With climate change posing increasing risks, the Advisory Council for Aviation Research and Innovation in Europe (ACARE) aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 75% and NOx emissions by 90% per passenger kilometer by 2050, compared to a baseline aircraft from 2000. The ARENA project addresses this by developing a waste heat recovery system using...

The imminence of anthropogenic climate change has motivated a global energy transition towards sustainable power generation. Offshore wind—an important contributor to the energy transition—is expanding, not only in turbine size and number of installations, but also into regions with harsher environmental conditions. One of those conditions in...

The growing understanding of the physics of superconductor-semiconductor nanostruc- tures is a key driver for the development of emerging quantum technologies. The elemen- tary excitations of these hybrid nanostructures are Andreev bound states. To further our knowledge about their intricate physics, new tools must be used to study them. This...

Galaxy clusters are some of the largest known structures in the universe. Studying them observationally and theoretically can provide a lot of information on how these clusters form and are structured. One way to study them is through the so-called Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effect, which is an interaction between the cosmic...

van Lierde, Simon (author)
Despite The Hague's historically mild climate, it is experiencing rising temperatures and more frequent heatwaves, resulting in a growing demand for space cooling. However, there is a significant gap in research and sustainable policies to address this demand in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. While studies have examined the...

Micro- and nanoplastics (MNPs) are attracting increasing attention due to their persistence and potential ecological risks. This review critically summarizes the effects of photo-oxidation on the physical, chemical, and biological behaviors of MNPs in aquatic and terrestrial environments. The core of this paper explores how photo-oxidation...

Around the world, an increasing amount of bridge infrastructure is ageing. The resources involved in the reassessment of existing assets often exceed available resources and many bridges lack a minimum structural assessment. Therefore, there is a need for comprehensive and quantitative approaches to assess all the assets in the bridge network to...

The causal impact of the built environment on travel behaviours is a subject of debate. This debate especially concerns the independent effect of the built environment on the observed travel patterns after taking into account residential self-selection arising from pre-existing travel-related attitude. This study argues that travel attitude...

Recently, the all-d-metal Ni(Co)MnTi based Heusler compounds are found to have a giant magnetocaloric effect (GMCE) near room temperature and manifest different functionalities like multicaloric effects, which can be employed for solid-state refrigeration. However, in comparison to other traditional Heusler compounds, the relatively large...

The Fe<sub>2</sub>P type Mn–Fe–P–Si alloys exhibit a giant magneto-elastic first-order transition, but the large hysteresis limits their performance. Crystal structure evolution and magnetocaloric performance were investigated by varying the Mn and Fe contents at a constant V substitution of 0.02 in Fe<sub>2</sub>P-type (Mn<sub>1.17-x</sub>Fe...
