  1. 1. Toward Carbon based NEMS

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Farzan Alavian Ghavanini; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Övrig teknisk fysik; Other engineering physics; Nanoelectromechanical systems; NEMS; carbon nanotubes CNT ; vertically aligned carbon nanofibers VACNF ; CNT-based switch; and CMOS compatibility ;

    Abstract : A systematic analysis and assessment of carbon nanotube (CNT) based NEMS switches is presented and their features are compared to typical complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) performance parameters. It is shown that CNT-based switches with considerably smaller leakage current compared to CMOS switches can be realized. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cost-effective fuel and technology choices in the transportation sector in a future carbon constrained world: Results from the Global Energy Transition (GET) model

    Abstract : This thesis analyzes future fuel and technology choices focusing on transport in a carbon constrained world. The analysis tool used in all five appended papers is the cost-minimizing Global Energy Transition (GET) model. READ MORE

  3. 3. Transport and environment incentive policy instruments : effects and interactions

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Liu Xing; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Congestion pricing; Equity effects; Modal choice; Social marginal cost; Externalities; Transport taxation; Carbon tax; Carbon leakage; Computable General Equilibrium Model; VTTS; Simultaneous decision model; Random utility model; Logistics cost minimization; Additionality; Klimp; Climate subsidy program; Subsidy; CDM; Business Studies; Företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : This dissertation studies issues related to the evaluation of the effects and interactions of transport and environmental incentive policy instruments. Essay 1: Green cars sterilize congestion charges: a model analysis of the reduced impact of Stockholm road tolls calibrates a modal-choice model with data from the Stockholm road toll and uses it to study the sensitivity of congestion toll effects to some seemly subtle changes in the toll system design and external circumstances.

  4. 4. Carbon Dioxide in Supermarket Refrigeration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Samer Sawalha; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CO2; carbon dioxide; refrigeration system; supermarket; cascade; indirect; trans-critical; modelling; simulation; experiment; safety analysis; comparison; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Mechanical and thermal engineering Mechanical energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis theoretically and experimentally investigates different aspects of the application of CO2 in supermarket refrigeration. Theoretical analysis has been performed using computer simulation models developed to simulate CO2 indirect, NH3/CO2 cascade, CO2 trans-critical and direct expansion (DX) R404A systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. European Energy Policy in Transition: Critical Aspects of Emissions Trading
