  1. 1. Towards Efficient Quantum Memories in Rare-Earth-Ion-Doped Solids

    Author : Atia Amari; Atomfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; rare-earth-ion-doped crystals; spectral hole-burning spectroscopy; AFC; CRIB; superradiance; slow light; Quantum memories; photon echo; EIT;

    Abstract : This thesis describes experiments aimed at developing a key component in applications such as quantum networks and long-distance quantum communication systems: quantum memories. Quantum memories for light using photon-echo and coherent rephrasing techniques have been developed. The work is carried out on rare-earth-ion-doped inorganic crystals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ovarian Reserve and Assisted Reproduction

    Author : Thomas Brodin; Jan Holte; Matts Olovsson; Lars Berglund; Juha Tapanainen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AFC; AMH; anti-Müllerian hormone; antral follicle count; follicle-stimulating hormone; FSH; ICSI; infertility; intracytoplasmic sperm injection; in vitro fertilization; IVF; LH; live birth; luteinizing hormone; menstrual cycle; menstrual cycle length; ovarian reserve; pregnancy; reproductive endocrinology; reproductive technology; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Treatment success in IVF-ICSI is mainly limited by female age, but differences in ovarian reserve (OR; the remaining pool of oocytes and their quality) between individuals modify treatment prerequisites among women of similar age. OR may be assessed by OR tests (ORTs). READ MORE

  3. 3. Active Flow Control for Reducing Drag on Trucks: from Concept to Full Scale Testing

    Author : Guglielmo Minelli; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AFC; Experiments; Vehicle Aerodynamics; Partially-Averaged Navier-Stokes; PANS; LES; Wind Tunnel; POD; Active Flow Control; Large Eddy Simulations; Proper Orthogonal Decomposition; PIV;

    Abstract : There is no doubt that road vehicle transportation is needed to improve efficiency, to reduce power consumption and to contribute to a sustainable mobility. Aerodynamics plays a crucial role in this, and its optimization can have a significant impact on fuel efficiency. READ MORE

  4. 4. Drag Reduction by means of Active Flow Control Applied on a Generic Truck A-pillar: a Numerical and Experimental Study

    Author : Guglielmo Minelli; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; PANS; Large Eddy Simulation; Wind Tunnel.; Bluff Body Flow; Modal Decomposition; Experiments; Vehicle Aerodynamic; POD; Active Flow Control; LES; Partially Averaged Navier Stokes; AFC;

    Abstract : The overall goal of this thesis is to isolate and control the flow mechanism characterizing the flow separation occurring at the A-pillar of a truck. The study aims to gain knowledge of the flow physics of the separation mechanism, and to eventually suppress the afore mentioned separation by means of an Active Flow Control. READ MORE

  5. 5. Active Flow Control for Drag Reduction of Heavy Vehicles

    Author : Mohammad El-Alti; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active and Passive Flow Control; Tilt-rotor wing; Large-eddySimulation; Heavy vehicles; optimization; Full-scale road test; Trucks; Bluff-body; Wake; Drag reduction; Aircrafts; Response surface methodology; Synthetic-jet Actuator;

    Abstract : This thesis considers the aerodynamics of trucks. The work focuses on the aerodynamic drag caused by the wake. Bluff-body flows are dominated by large dissipative vortex-shedding wakes with a low mean pressure compared to the high pressure on their frontal area. READ MORE
