This paper presents the fabrication and electrical characterization of superconducting high-aspect ratio through-silicon vias DC-sputtered with aluminum. Fully conformal and void-free coating of 300 μm-deep and 50 μmwide vias with Al, a CMOS-compatible and widely available superconductor, was made possible by tailoring a funneled sidewall...

This paper tackles the problem of the classification of partial discharge (PD) and noise signals by applying unsupervised and semi-supervised learning methods. The first step in the proposed methodology is to prepare a set of classification features from the statistical moments of the distribution of the Wavelet detail coefficients extracted...

Poelma, C. (author)
A review is presented of measurement techniques to characterise dispersed multiphase flows, which are not accessible by means of conventional optical techniques. The main issues that limit the accuracy and effectiveness of optical techniques are briefly discussed: cross-talk, a reduced signal-to-noise ratio, and (biased) data drop-out....

One of the biggest scientific challenges to be tackled this century is how traits of living organisms originate from genes, the so-called genotype-phenotype map, and conversely how traits influence genes through a process called evolution. The solution will yield a large societal impact, with applications in food (e.g., engineering drought...

Governments’ attempts to link the provision of welfare services to (more) responsible self-conduct of citizens (i.e. responsibilization) is seen as a distinctive feature of the post-welfare state. Responsibilization often requires welfare receivers to comply with specific duties or behavioural patterns (i.e. conditionality). Except for UK-based...

By exploiting quantum mechanics, quantum computers are able to solve problems---for example in quantum chemistry---that are far out of reach of classical computers. Conventional approaches to quantum computers use qubits (quantum bits) that can either be made out of superconducting circuits (the currently leading approach used to demonstrate...

For patients that undergo a total hip replacement (Total Hip Arthroplasty, THA), tailored communication through printed or digital information channels may improve the patient experience. This PhD project explored how a segmentation of the Total Joint Arthroplasty (TJA, both knee and hip surgery) patient population can be used to design tailored...

Bike-sharing systems have rapidly expanded around the world. Previous studies found that docked and dockless bike-sharing systems are different in terms of user demand and travel characteristics. However, their usage regularity and its determinants have not been fully understood. This research aims to fill this gap by exploring smart card...

Interaction between dipolar forces, such as permanent magnets, generally leads to the formation of one-dimensional chains and rings. We investigated whether it was possible to let dipoles self-assemble into three-dimensional structures by encapsulating them in a shell with a specific shape. We found that the condition for self-assembly of a...

Urban infrastructure is a complex interdependent system of system. It provides a framework that connect and integrate social, cultural, financial, natural, technological and human values. This paper contributes to the development of new approaches towards urban infrastructure governance, identified as one of the key issues in the field of...

Understanding how inequalities are transmitted through generations and restrict upward spatial mobility has long been a concern of geographic research. Previous research has identified that the neighborhood in which someone grows up is highly predictive of the type of neighborhood he or she will live in as an independent adult. What remains...

Malaria remains an important cause of high morbidity and mortality worldwide. According to World Health Organisation (WHO) malaria report for 2017, malaria accounted for the death of 435,000 people. It is the leading cause of death among pregnant women and little children. 11% of maternal and 20% of under–five deaths are attributed to malaria...

Thermoplastic veils based on Polyethylene-terephthalate (PET), Polyphenylene-sulfide (PPS) and Polyamide-12 (PA) fibres (∼10μm in diameter) were used to interlay unidirectional (UD), non-crimp fabric (NCF) and 5-Harness satin weave (5H) carbon fibre laminates. The PET and PPS veils remained in a fibrous form and the PA veils melted during the...

A novel approach is proposed to reduce, compared with the conventional binning approach, the large number of aeroelastic code evaluations that are necessary to obtain equivalent loads acting on wind turbines. These loads describe the effect of long-term environmental variability on the fatigue loads of a horizontal-axis wind turbine. In...

This study is devoted to the damage characterization of Non-Crimp Fabric (NCF), 2D plain-woven (2D-PW) and 3D orthogonal plain-woven (ORT-PW) carbon/epoxy laminates, subjected to compression after multiple-impact loading, using Acoustic Emission (AE). The ultrasonic C-scan images showed that the interlaminar damage area induced by the single and...

Increasing impacts from disasters and climate hazards have prompted international efforts to promote the development of national disaster risk reduction and resilience (DRRR) strategies intended to reduce mortality and other losses. The development of such strategies is the subject of target E of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk...

In recent years, the space market has been pushing towards decreasing costs of launching spacecraft by reusing parts of the launchers. The purpose of this article is to present a feasibility study of a recovery system for the engine and engine frame of an existing, expendable heavy launch vehicle and present recommendations for further...

This paper presents a new dynamic inflow model for vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs). The model uses the principle of Duhamel's integral. The indicial function of the inflow- and crossflow-induction required to apply Duhamel's integral is represented by an exponential function depending on the thrust coefficient and the azimuthal position....

Atrial fibrillation is a clinical arrhythmia with multifactorial mechanisms still unresolved. Time-frequency analysis of epicardial electrograms has been investigated to study atrial fibrillation. However, deeper understanding can be achieved by incorporating the spatial dimension. Unfortunately, the physical models describing the spatial...
