Wang, X. (author)
In this thesis, fibre optic sensing has been investigated as an important technique for structural health monitoring. Distributed fibre optic sensing based on Rayleigh scattering is a fibre optic sensing technique to achieve the spatially continuous strain monitoring for critical locations for the structures. However, the Rayleigh backscattering...

Optical fibre backscatter reflectometry is an important technique for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). In recent years, increasing the intensity of backscattered light in backscatter reflectometry has shown the advantage of improving the signal detection in shape sensing and temperature detection due to the increase of signal to noise...

This study forms a part of the research in using nanoparticles (NPs) to increase the intensity of light scattering signal in the optical fibres. Increasing the intensity of the backscattered light signal in the optical fibres shows the potential to increase the signal-to-noise ratio in order to improve the sensitivity of the backscatter...

Heart rate (HR) detection in premature infants using electrocardiography (ECG) is challenging due to a low signal amplitude and the fragility of the premature skin. Recently, the dynamic light scattering (DLS) technique has been miniaturized, allowing noninvasive HR measurements with a single sensor. Objective: The aim was to determine the...

This study forms the first part of research into enhancing the forward and back scattering of light in an optical fibre using nanoparticles (NPs). This approach has the potential to enhance the sensitivity of optical fibre sensing by increasing the signal-to-noise ratio. The work described in this paper is focused on understanding the...

In many oil fields, water is injected into a reservoir to displace oil to the production wells. During the injection process, oil is pushed by water towards production wells which have a lower pressure than the rest of the reservoir. If the reservoir is homogeneous, then a good sweep efficiency of the water flood process is expected. However,...

To address the energy demand of the growing world population, the transition from polluting exhaustible energy sources to clean inexhaustible energy sources is imminent. Solar energy is one of the energy sources that has been studied extensively. In particular, the application of solar energy in photoelectrochemical water splitting has gained...

Laser speckle analysis is a very powerful method with various existing applications, including biomedical diagnostics. The majority of the speckle applications are based on analysis of dependence of scattered light intensity distribution from sizes of the scattereres. We propose a numerical model of speckle formation in reflected light in one...

We propose and develop a readout scheme for superconducting single-photon detectors based on an integrated circuit, relaxing the need for large bandwidth amplification and resulting in voltage steps proportional to the number of detected photons. We also demonstrate time gating, to filter scattered light in time and reduce dark counts. This...

Solar energy can fulfil mankind’s energy needs and secure a more balanced distribution of primary sources of energy. Wafer-based and thin-film silicon solar cells dominate todays’ photovoltaic market because silicon is a non-toxic and abundant material and high conversion efficiencies are achieved with silicon-based solar cells. To stay...

Textured interfaces in thin-film silicon solar cells improve the efficiency by light scattering. A technique to get experimental access to the angular intensity distribution (AID) at textured interfaces of the transparent conductive oxide (TCO) and silicon is introduced. Measurements are performed on a sample with polished microcrystalline...

Substrates with a modulated surface texture were prepared by combining different interface morphologies. The spatial frequency surface representation method is used to evaluate the surface modulation. When combining morphologies with appropriate geometrical features, substrates exhibit an increased scattering level in a broad wavelength region....

We discuss the thermal motion of colloidal particles in transient polymer networks. For particles that are physically bound to the surrounding chains, light-scattering experiments reveal that the submillisecond dynamics changes from diffusive to Rouse-like upon crossing the network formation threshold. Particles that are not bound do not show...

The study of DNA-protein interactions is gaining increased attention due to their importance in cellular processes. Only a well-functioning interaction guaranties that such a process can take place without errors. So far, only a small percentage of these interactions have been unraveled, partially due to their complexity but also due to the fact...

In this thesis we focus on the compaction of DNA within Escherichia coli and aim to gain some understanding of the physical mechanism behind its spatial organization in the cell. Chapter I is a brief review of the current knowledge of nucleoid structure. We discuss a model for DNA compaction in the living Escherichia coli cell, for which this...
