Closed-form solutions are presented for calculating the reflection coefficient with corresponding uncertainty of metrology-grade 3.5 mm air-dielectric coaxial transmission lines for use as reference standards in S-parameter measurements up to 33 GHz. The closed-form solutions allow the calculation of the sensitivity coefficients required for...

This dissertation addresses the demand for faster, more precise, and robust controllers in the precision motion industry. Traditional linear controllers have limitations due to the waterbed effect and Bode’s phase-gain relationship. To overcome these limitations, complex-order controllers are explored in this study. The dissertation focuses on...

High-tech systems are subjected to strict temperature requirements. Therefore temperature control using cooling water is vital for thermal stability. Unfortunately, components like pumps and fluid couplings generate flow disturbances, resulting in mechanical vibrations that influence the performance of the system. This research focusses on the...

Precision orbit determination for geodetic applications requires force models even for small perturbations. Radiation from the Sun and Moon is a significant source of perturbation in lunar orbits and inadequate modeling of radiation pressure (RP) can lead to large position errors. This paper describes the short-term effect of RP on the Lunar...

Linear time-invariant (LTI) controllers suffer from inherent limitations as the waterbed effect and Bode's gain-phase relationship. Reset control, a nonlinear strategy involving the reset of linear controllers, offers a potential solution to overcome these traditional LTI limitations. Based on the describing function analysis, the reset...

Nowadays, many space missions require highly accurate pointing for Earth observation or cosmic vision purposes. However, the vibration environment from a spacecraft's structure and reaction wheels can cause disturbances in its line-of-sight stability and severely impact image quality. Additionally, these effects are not known precisely due to...

This work delves into designing and implementing an optimized self-centering lens mounting technique for the collimator and coupler lenses in the Universal Light Source (ULS) by ASML. The ULS aims to meet the growing demand for smaller logic nodes and higher throughput in optical metrology sensors. To achieve precise alignment and stability, the...

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is a global array of telescopes that employs Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) techniques to image the event horizon of black holes. To overcome the limitations of ground-based telescopes, this thesis explores the mission concept involving a two-satellite constellation of space-borne telescopes deployed...

This thesis describes the design and simulation of a capacitively-coupled autozeroed and chopped operational amplifier in the TSMC high-voltage BCD 0.18 μm 5 V technology. It uses chopping and autozeroing to achieve high precision (10 μV offset and 50 nV/√Hz noise density) and a capacitively-coupled input stage to safely handle beyond-the-rails...

Due to the limited availability of suitable livers for transplantation and the increasing use of suboptimal donor livers, which are more prone to ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI), there is an urgent need for novel graft-ameliorating therapies. The promising capacities of (liver-derived) mesenchymal stromal cells ((L-)MSC) in mitigating IRI and...

Geometric algorithms are usually designed based on the assumption of using arbitraryprecision representations. However, in modern computer systems floating-point arithmetic and finite-precision approximation are often used as implementing exact computations would require large computational resources and would be rather slow in the applications....

When a person suffers from severe to profound hearing loss, a cochlear implant (CI) can aid in restoring auditory perception and speech comprehension. To obtain good speech comprehension, fitting of a CI to the user’s specific characteristics is crucial. Fitting can be a time-consuming process which requires the cooperation of a CI user and is...

In the semiconductor industry, integrated circuits with nanometre scale structures are manufactured on silicon wafers. Particle contamination on the topside of the wafer can result in the defectivity of the entire die. In the ever-increasing efforts to create smaller structures onto a wafer particle contamination becomes more restrictive to...

A vitrectome is a commonly used instrument in eye surgery, which is used to cut and aspirate the vitreous body out of the eye. The mechanism of the vitrectome consists of miniature components that need to be assembled by hand due to their size. Non-assembly 3D printing, in which fully functional mechanisms can be produced in a single production...

Precise point positioning-real-time kinematic (PPP-RTK), otherwise known as integer ambiguity resolution-enabled precise pointing positioning, has attracted much attention in recent years and has become state-of-the-art in the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) high-precision positioning community. This work reviews several PPP-RTK...

To obtain single-receiver Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) parameter solutions, the PPP-RTK user-filter combines measurements with time-correlated corrections that are separately computed by the filter of an external provider. The consequence of exercising such double-filtering is that the Kalman filter’s standard assumption of...

The ever-increasing industry desire for improved performance makes linear controller design run into fundamental limitations. Nonlinear control methods such as Reset Control (RC) are needed to overcome these. RC is a promising candidate since, unlike other nonlinear methods, it easily integrates into the industry-preferred PID design...

Spoofax is a language workbench. A Spoofax language specification generally includes name resolution: the analysis of bindings between definitions and references. When browsing code in the specified language using Spoofax, the bindings appear as hyperlinks, supporting precise name-based code navigation. However, Spoofax cannot be used for...

The provision of accurate ionospheric corrections in PPP-RTK enormously improves the performance of single-receiver user integer ambiguity resolution (IAR), thus enabling fast high precision positioning. While an external provider can disseminate such corrections to the user with a time delay, it is the task of the user to accurately time...

BackgroundEnteric methane from cow burps, which results from microbial fermentation of high-fiber feed in the rumen, is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. A promising strategy to address this problem is microbiome-based precision feed, which involves identifying key microorganisms for methane production. While machine...
