The humanly constructed world is well-organized in space. A prominent feature of this artificial world is the presence of repetitive structures and coherent patterns, such as lines, junctions, wireframes of a building, and footprints of a city. These structures and patterns facilitate visual scene understanding by providing abundant geometry...

The precise manipulation of particles and droplets is crucial to many microfluidic applications in engineering. The design of microfluidic devices is generally tailored to perform a specific task, with each specific application requiring a unique and fixed design. In this way, using a single device to perform multiple analyses of a wide range of...

A future quantum internet will bring revolutionary opportunities. In a quantum internet, information will be represented using qubits. These qubits obey the rules of quantum mechanics. The possibilities to create superposition and entangled states, and to perform projective measurements give the quantum internet its unique strengths. A...

Kuipers, T. (author)
The products in our day to day lives have different requirements in different regions of the product. One way of dealing with such spatially varying requirements is to divide the product into multiple parts and assign each part a different material. For example, the handle of a drill is often fitted with a rubbery material which gives it more...

Forests cover a large part of the globe, and are responsible for a large amount of evaporation and the fixation of carbon. To be able to better understand this atmospheric exchange of forests, and how the forests will behave under future climate change, both accurate measurements as well as models are required. However, due to their height and...

Osteoimmunomodulation (OIM) is a mechanism through which orthopedic biomaterials may modulate the function of immune cells to promote osteogenesis. OIM is considered a potentially effective way for improving osseointegration. The surface characteristics of orthopedic implants (e.g., topography, wettability, surface chemistry, and charge) can...

Colombi, G. (author)
The uncommon photochromism, photo-conductivity, and H-mobility of RE oxyhydride materials make them promising candidates for application in optics, opto-electronics and electrochemical devices alike. Additionally, their extreme compositional flexibility and the connected variety of possible (meta)stable phases make them an excellent case study...

Nowadays, economic development, urbanisation and heavy rainfall events are present in urban areas. A major change in approaches to the management of flooding is also ongoing in many countries worldwide. There are some decision support system tools available to evaluate green and grey infrastructures across a wide range of conditions as well as...

Satellite Precipitation Products (SPP) have been revolutionary in water resources management and flood-related disaster response. However, estimating extreme rainfall is subject to multiple systematic and aleatory errors that need to be corrected. This dissertation addresses errors in satellite data to estimate extreme rainfall events in space...

Linne, C. (author)
To bind two entities together, an attractive interaction is needed. In biological systems, such interactions are often between ligands and receptors. But this interaction constantly breaks and forms because it is (too) weak. To ensure a lasting bond, the system can form multiple weak bonds that form an overall strong bond – similar to velcro. An...

Anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) technology is increasingly researched for wastewater treatment in a circular economy scenario to recover nutrients, water, and biogas. AnMBR couples the advantages of anaerobic digestion, such as low sludge production, no aeration requirement and biogas production, with the benefits of membrane technology,...

Tepjit, S. (author)
Our research concentrated on a newly emerged problem related to smart cyber-physical systems (S-CPSs). The essence of the problem is that S-CPSs are based on reasoning mechanisms that enable them to generate context-dependent solutions for various application problems. Typically, development of application-specific reasoning mechanisms (ASRMs)...

The Christophe Danelon lab is involved in the long-term effort to construct an autonomous minimal cell using a bottom-up approach. Our goal is to achieve self-maintenance, selfreproduction, and evolution of a liposome compartment containing a minimal genome and a cell-free gene expression system. Self-reproduction requires splitting of the...

Phononic crystals can be designed to have bandgaps---ranges of frequencies whose propagation through the material is prevented. They are therefore attractive for vibration isolation applications in different industries, where unwanted vibrations reduce performance. Yet, important steps are still to be made for the integration of phononic...

Currently, many cities around the world use underground space for different applications such as tunnels, utility networks, parking, walkways, and shopping malls. Due to the increasing use of underground areas, management of this space is very important for decision-makers and stakeholders. A 3D Underground Land Administration (ULA) data model...

This paper reviews approaches to utility registration and analyzes the Croatian utility cadaster and utility registration regulations. In Croatia, utility networks are registered in the national utility cadaster administered by State Geodetic Administration, with private companies obliged to send reports on all changes to the utility networks...

In many jurisdictions sub-ownership rights can be separated from the main body of ownership. In Scotland these are referred to as separate tenements and encompass such ownership rights as minerals, salmon fishing, mines of gold and silver, and petroleum (Reid et al., 1996, pp. 168-171). The main body of ownership may be further encumbered with...

The Land Administration Domain Model (LADM (ISO TC/211, 2012)) is a conceptual model which supports the modelling of social relations with land articulated through rights. There are three principal concepts within LADM: the party (the who) that has a rights relationship (the what) with a plot of land (the where). A party-right-land model by...

Four basic concepts form the basis of a modern land management system: Land Tenure, Land Value, Land Use, and Land Development. Cadastral studies are seen as the cornerstone of these four basic concepts. Especially, complex buildings located underground and above ground form the basis of 3D cadastral studies. In addition, international research...

Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) is an international standard for defining both semantic and spatial information connected with rights, restrictions, and responsibilities (RRRs) that affect land, water, built assets, natural resources, underground spaces, and airspaces. Since LADM is currently a conceptual land administration model, one...
