Focussed Electron Beam Induced Processing is a high resolution direct-write nanopatterning technique. Its ability to fabricate sub-10 nm structures together with its versatility and ease of use, in that it is resist-free and implementable inside a Scanning Electron Microscope, make it attractive for a variety of applications in nanofabrication....

Microbial production of fuels and chemicals provides opportunities for replacing conventional production processes, which are based on chemical synthesis from non-renewable raw materials or on labour- and capital-intensive extraction from animal or plant tissues. Aeons of evolution, in which astronomical numbers of microorganisms competed for...

Particle therapy (PT), including proton therapy, has important advantages compared to external beam photon therapy (section 1.1). This is because most of the therapeutic effect of a proton beam is localized at the endpoint, where most of its energy is imparted to the medium (Bragg peak), with nearly no dose deposited beyond that point. However,...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the disruptive technologies in today’s connected world. The idea is to connect every thing to the Internet. IoT holds the key to many current and future technologies that will significantly influence the quality and sustainability of life. The vision of IoT is to enable large scalemonitoring and/or control...

High-performance concrete (HPC) is vulnerable to spalling under high temperature conditions and it has been found that the heating rate can exert a tremendous effect on spalling of HPC. To prevent HPC from spalling, the heating rate effect should be understood. However, quantitative analyses are still lacking and the heating rate effect has...

This thesis focuses on the design of nascent energy and industrial infrastructure networks: networks that still needed to be built and for which neither scope, size, nor participants were certain. It develops systematic design analysis approaches to help improve design under uncertainty by means of flexibility. There are four parts to the thesis...

Will the Automotive era come to an end in the 21th century? Looking at today’s environmental and economic challenges of the use of cars based on last century technology and listening to some trend watchers one could think so. Cars can be regarded, as an old school status product indeed, for which there is no use, no place, no money and no...

Large-scale systems of nonlinear equations appear in many applications. In various applications, the solution of the nonlinear equations should also be in a certain interval. A typical application is a discretized system of reaction diffusion equations. It is well known that chemical species should be positive otherwise the solution is not...

Akyel, A. (author)
For cyclically loaded structures, fatigue design becomes one of the important design criteria. The state of art shows that with modification of the conventional structural design methodology, the use of very high strength steels may have a positive effect on fatigue strength of welded connections. However, there is little known about the repair...

Bontje, L.E. (author)
Pilot projects are favoured instruments for exploring and perhaps realising
policy change. The challenges that coastal policy faces, the frequency with
which pilot projects are implemented, and the criticisms regarding their
efficacy make it interesting and relevant to study pilot projects in this policy
field. This dissertation...

van den Berg, E.M. (author)
The anthropogenic nitrogen inputs in the environment exceed the input by natural processes and impact the global nitrogen cycle considerably . Human meddling in the N-cycle occurs mainly in agricultural ecosystems. Loss of nitrogen from the agricultural soils, other than crop harvest, can have polluting effects on other environments. The three...

Korkakaki, E. (author)
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are compounds naturally produced by microorganisms, with many industrial applications, either as bioplastics or as precursors for production of chemicals. Until now, industrial PHA production was conducted with pure strains of bacteria fed with well-defined feedstocks, making the overall process non-economically...

The goal of this Ph.D. research is to develop imaging systems for the multiple beam scanning electron microscope (MBSEM) built in Delft University of Technology. This thesis includes two imaging systems, transmission electron (TE) imaging system, and secondary electron (SE) imaging system. The major conclusions, key results and some suggestions...

Bacteria and archaea are constantly threatened by a large array of viruses and other genetic elements. Driven by evolution, these organisms have acquired a wide arsenal of defense mechanisms that allow the host organism to fight off the invaders. Among these defense mechanisms is an adaptive and inheritable that is conveyed through Clustered...

With many operations at sea carried out by ships or or other
floating vessels, risks are involved because of the waves and
resulting motions of the ships. Examples are the landing of helicopters on ships, transferring crew from a ship to a wind turbine, or working on the deck of an anchor handling tug. It is common practice to assess...
