As advances in silicone CMOS technology steadily plateau, new avenues of electronics design must be explored. Graphene Nanoribbons (GNRs) are a potential solution. Current GNR designs require wasteful exhaustive searches for the required device topologies, limiting the size of the solution space that can be searched. This is fine for simple...

Expansion microscopy (ExM) is a new approach to super-resolution that relies on the physical isotropic expansion of a sample in a swellable polymer network. We developed a novel ExM method termed Sevenfold Post-labelling Expansion Microscopy (SP-ExM) that enables sevenfold expansion in a single step of thick cerebellar mouse brain and human...

The main focus of this thesis is on a thin glass sandwich panel combined with a three-dimensional printed core pattern. The core pattern provides stiffness to the panel, but it also influences the daylight transmission. The goal of this research is to design a façade system which can dynamically improve the daylight performance, effectively...

Cyanobacteria are photosynthetic microorganisms found in a variety of environments, including marine water bodies. Some species are able to perform biomineralization, producing minerals such as calcium carbonate (CaCO3) that may act as biocement. The biomineralization capability of cyanobacteria has already been explored in the development of...

The internet is a system that was introduced over 30 years ago and has taken over the world since then. Connecting over 5 billion people is possible thanks to the global scale that the internet operates at. While the advantages are unmistakable, we must also acknowledge that the internet is a large contributor to the emission of greenhouse...

In large-scale ML, data size becomes a critical variable, especially in the context of large companies, where models already exist and are hard to change and fine-tune. Time to market and model quality are essential metrics, thus looking for ways to select, prune and augment the input data while treating the model as a black box can speed up the...

Amidst the rampant spread of misinformation, fact-checking of diverse claims made on the internet has become a pertinent task to mitigate this problem. Manual fact-checking cannot scale up with this demand and is very cumbersome, therefore instead automated fact-checking can be used. However, existing work has primarily focused on the fact...

The concept of Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) aircraft holds great promise in achieving the goals outlined in Flightpath 2050. This involves utilizing electricity to power propellers and enhancing overall flight performance through interactions between the wings and propellers. This thesis investigates the stability and control aspects of...

In Inverse Optimization (IO), it is hypothesized that experts, when making decisions, implicitly engage in solving an optimization problem. If we can reconstruct this optimization problem using the decision data of the expert, then the behavior of the expert can be emulated. In this thesis, a novel inverse optimization model, Kernel Inverse...

This research examines the resilience of the water sector after a societal collapse, defined by a significant loss of societal complexity. Through Exploratory Modeling and Analysis, this research evaluates how interconnected infrastructures respond to cascading failures caused by disruptions resulting from a societal collapse. The investigation...

Offshore wind farms are increasing in size and moving further from shore. Service operation vessels (SOVs) are used for offshore wind operation and maintenance (O&amp;M) at these large far offshore sites. These large vessels typically have a smaller daughter craft (DC) on board that can assist them. This DC is however too small to provide the...

The use of non-destructive tests for assessing the material status of concrete structures in the Netherlands remains relatively uncommon, despite the growing demand for the preservation of existing structures under the VenR policy of Rijkswaterstaat. Skepticism towards NDTs is reflected in the scarcity of documented case studies in publicly...

The use of geometric anti-springs (GASs) in MEMS accelerometers can not only boost the sensitivity through the static balancing effect, it also introduces the capability to tune the stiffness post-manufacturing by adjusting the balancing force. This paper addresses the challenge of mechanically fine-tuning the stiffness to create the potential...

The introduction of electric buses (EBs) is required in order to achieve global greenhouse emission goals. However, operating an electric bus fleet (EBF) requires careful consideration of both the mobility and energy systems in charging strategies. In literature and in real life many cases show careful consideration of only one of the systems...

In the realm of machine learning (ML), the need for efficiency in training processes is paramount. The conventional first step in an ML workflow involves collecting data from various sources and merging them into a single table, a process known as materialization, which can introduce inefficiencies caused by redundant data. Factorized ML strives...

Capacitive deionisation (CDI) is a desalination technology that removes ionic species from water through electrostatic attraction. Recently, a new CDI cell architecture has been developed with multiple channels and electrodes. Here, the ions are driven to migrate from channel to channel to desalinate the water. The inner electrodes of such a...
