Accurate placement of screws in spinal surgery is vital to mitigate risks like instability, nerve damage, or spinal cord injury, which can lead to various complications such as pain, sensory loss, muscle weakness, or paralysis below the injury site [33]. However, success rates in screw placement vary widely, ranging from 27.6% to 100% [56].<br/>...

Considering that the IoT is giving rise to new sensing infrastructures with stringent requirements, we are posed with new trade-offs. On one hand, there is a need to develop systems that have a low cost, complexity, and ecological footprint, while being privacy-aware. On the other hand, despite these constraints, there is a need to still...

Coastal areas face increasing threat from erosion. The use of coastal protection structures is imperative to counter this. Concrete “armouring” is widely used due to durability and cost-effectiveness. Conventional methods of “armouring” result in habitat degradation and loss of biodiversity. ECOncrete developed Coastalock, an armour unit...

The promotion of desirable behaviours, such as socially appropriate or health-promoting actions, can be bolstered through a deeper understanding and awareness of the values that underpin the associated behavioural choices. Various implementations for promoting behaviour change based on goals already exist in Human-Robot Interaction, but, since...

Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) can provide tissue feedback for pedicle screw placement in spine surgery, yet the integration of fiber optics into the tip of the pedicle probe, a device used to pierce through bone, is challenging, since the optical probing depth and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) are affected negatively compared to those of...

Multi-path propagation over asphalt road surfaces at automotive radar frequencies is studied. A new expression for the reflection coefficient from asphalt which takes into account asphalt surface roughness is proposed. The classic two-ray method to take into account the multi-path is improved using antenna radiation patterns and the antenna tilt...

Seismic interferometry (SI) retrieves the Green function between two receiver locations using their recordings from a boundary of sources. When using sources and receivers only at the surface, the virtual-source gathers retrieved by SI contain pseudo-physical reflections as well as ghost (non-physical) reflections. These ghost reflections are...

When people use web search engines to find information on debated topics, the search results they encounter can influence opinion formation and practical decision-making with potentially far-reaching consequences for the individual and society. However, current web search engines lack support for information-seeking strategies that enable...

Background: In brain tumor surgery, maximal tumor resection is typically desired. This is complicated by infiltrative tumor cells which cannot be visually distinguished from healthy brain tissue. Optical methods are an emerging field that can potentially revolutionize brain tumor surgery through intraoperative differentiation between healthy...

Operando methodologies are widely used in heterogenous catalysis to understand unique state of catalyst materials emerging under specific reaction conditions and to establish catalyst structure-activity relationships. Recent studies highlight the importance of combining multiple operando techniques (multimodal approach) to gain complementary...

Our research highlights the potential of Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) in detecting cortical breaches during pedicle screw placement. We propose a sideways-looking fiber-optic probe, integrating diffuse light emission with both forward and sideways light collection. Experiments on an optical tissue phantom validate the probe’s...

Highly ambitious initiatives aspire to propel a miniature spacecraft to a neighboring star within a human generation, leveraging the radiation pressure of lasers for propulsion. One major challenge for this enormous feat is to build a meter-scale, ultralow mass lightsail with broadband reflectivity. In this work, we present the design and...

Rendering accurate water reflections is crucial for achieving realism in computer graphics. Their integration with VR and AR technologies can further elevate experiences in sectors like education, engineering, and medicine. Even though various monoscopic reflection techniques exist they either demand substantial computational resources or cannot...

This master thesis explores the capacity of MIMO arrays for communication in the radiative near field through antenna design. This research applies an in-house MATLAB model based on free space Green’s function to calculate the channel matrix, revealing the potential increase of capacity through the use of incoherent arrays with directive...

Climate change has made us all aware of the urgent need for change. We know that governments, companies, and even us have a role to play in countering its effects. Sustainable consumer behavior usually involves things like eating less meat and cutting down on single-use plastics. However, what many people don’t realize is that the stuff we own,...
