We study efficient implicit methods to denoise low-field MR images using a nonlinear diffusion operator as a regularizer. This problem can be formulated as solving a nonlinear reaction–diffusion equation. After discretization, a lagged-diffusion approach is used which requires a linear system solve in every nonlinear iteration. The choice of...

Tensor, a multi-dimensional data structure, has been exploited recently in the machine learning community. Traditional machine learning approaches are vector- or matrix-based, and cannot handle tensorial data directly. In this paper, we propose a tensor train (TT)-based kernel technique for the first time, and apply it to the conventional...

For Offshore Floating Photovoltaics (OFPV) applications, thin-film PV panels on lightweight floating support structures gain increasing scientific and commercial interest. Over the past years, several different concepts of thin-film OFPV have been proposed, with the common denominator of floating mattress or blanket-like support structures...

Foam is applied in enhanced oil recovery to improve the sweep of injected gas and increase oil recovery, by greatly reducing the mobility of gas. In the laboratory, X-ray computed tomography is commonly used to evaluate the performance of foam in core plugs. However, foam properties, such as bubble size and capillary pressure, are much more...

To avoid detection during a bloodmeal, a mosquito must minimize contact forces during attachment and detachment contact while maintaining sufficient grip to insert their proboscis and feed. Measuring contact mechanics of the mosquito is technically challenging due to the small length and force scales. Because of this, many aspects of blood...

Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) operation is characterized by complex and unsteady three-dimensional fluid dynamics, which presents considerable challenges. One of the crucial points to understand is the complex interaction between rotor, inflow, and wake systems. If we can demonstrate its effectiveness in the complex flow/inflow conditions,...

Recent developments in quantum annealing have shown promising results in logistics, life sciences, machine learning and more. However, in the field of geophysical sciences the applications have been limited. A quantum annealing application was developed for residual statics estimation. Residual statics estimation is a highly non-linear problem...

Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) has been proven to be an effective treatment for patients suffering from drug­-resistant epilepsy. Current vagus nerve stimulators are either implantable devices or bulky, handheld devices. The implant consists of a pulse generator beneath the skin of the chest, connected to electrodes that are wired to the cervical...

Introduction Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging is a relatively novel development in colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) surgery which has proven to be an added value for the detection of new lesions and surgical guidance. However, new possibilities of NIRF imaging in CRLM surgery are yet to be explored. The fluorescent rim of indocyanine...

Introduction <br/>Pancreatic cancer is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States and has only a 5-year survival rate of 10%. Pancreatoduodenectomy is the cornerstone of curative treatment for patients diagnosed with pancreatic head cancer. Only 20% of the patients are candidate for surgery since many patients...

Topology optimization (TO) has proven to be a capable design methodology for the realization of lightweight solutions that maximize structural stiffness or other design objectives. Due to its capability to be adapted to suit a wide range of objectives and constraints, both structural and non-structural, TO has been widely applied in all...

Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF) is a relatively new approach for simultaneously estimating multiple quantitative maps in one acquisition. Sequence optimisation for MRF can be a powerful tool in increasing the accuracy an precision of the quantitative results. Multi-component analysis in the MRF framework can distinguish multiple...

This thesis describes the integration of temperature sensors into a CMOS image sensor (CIS). The temperature sensors provide the in-situ temperature of the pixels as well as the thermal distribution of the pixel array. The temperature and the thermal distribution are intended to be used to compensate for dark current affecting the CIS. Two...

Turbulent drag is the largest source of fuel consumption in aviation and forms a significant contribution to climate warming. Recent numerical studies have suggested the ability of surfaces with streamwise-preferential permeability to reduce turbulent friction, and a theoretical framework behind the working mechanism has been proposed. This work...

The 3D-digitisation of precious cultural heritage artifacts is highly important for historical preservation purposes. Doing so can help mitigate against events such as tourism damage, natural disasters, and war. It also enables access to three-dimensional data for researchers of all disciplines all around the globe to study these artifacts at...

This thesis discusses the architecture, circuit implementation and simulation results of an amplitude-tunable bipolar high voltage (HV) pulser for ultrasound imaging. This design is capable of providing a relatively high-resolution amplitude modulation and allows bipolar pulsing under a unipolar supply with a small die size.<br/>The pulser...

THz time-domain systems driven by photoconductive antennas (PCAs) promise a bandwidth of the order of hundreds of GHz. This characteristic can be utilized to build see-through radars with sub-mm resolution and a field of view comparable to the current mm-wave radars at a relatively low cost. These radars can solve the issues in the field of...

Recently, many advancements have been made in accelerated MRI reconstruction with the use of neural networks. Such deep learning methods learn a suitable MRI prior distribution from large sets of training data. For MRI images acquired with an uncommon scanning sequence, large datasets required for training are not available. Additionally, deep...
