  1. 1. Kinetic Measurements Using Nanoplasmonic Sensing

    Author : Markus Schwind; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sn Nanoparticles; Sensing; Localized Surface Plasmon Resonances; Particle Plasmon; Metal Oxidation; Metal Corrosion; Solid-Liquid Phase Transition; Kinetics; Al Nanoparticles;

    Abstract : In this thesis the nanoplasmonic sensing technique was used to study kinetics of (i) the oxidation of Al nanoparticles in air and water and (ii) the solid-liquid phase transition in Sn nanoparticles. The nanoplasmonic sensing technique detects changes of the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) in metal nanoparticles. READ MORE

    Abstract : Polymer nanocomposites are promising materials for dielectrical use in high voltage applications and insulations. This work presents a study of nanocomposites based on poly(ethylene-co-butyl acrylate) with two different comonomer compositions and two different aluminium oxide nanoparticles. READ MORE

  3. 3. New Materials for Gas Sensitive Field-Effect Device Studies

    Author : Anette Salomonsson; Anita Lloyd Spetz; Per-Olov Käll; Mehre Sanati; Mats Eriksson; Pelagia-Irene (Perena) Gourma; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ruthenium dioxide; nanoparticles; MISiCFET; sensors; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Gas sensor control is potentially one of the most important techniques of tomorrow for the environment. All over the world cars are preferred for transportation, and accordingly the number of cars increases, unfortunately, together with pollutants. Boilers and powerplants are other sources of pollutants to the environment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Water treatment using cryogel-based adsorbents - Targeting environmental pollutants at low concentrations

    Author : Linda Önnby; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Adsorption; cryogels; nanoparticles; arsenic; cadmium; water treatment; composites;

    Abstract : The lack of safe, clean water is strongly linked to poverty, underdevelopment and poor health. Water is needed not only to sustain life, but to produce food and in industrial processes. Anthropogenic pollution and natural events can jeopardize access to safe water. READ MORE

    Abstract : Cerium dioxide, or ceria, is a chemically stable oxygen ion conducting material with a capacity to store and release oxygen, and is therefore extensively used in combustion catalysts. The Cu-Ce-O system has been identified as one of the most active catalysts for the combustion of carbon monoxide. READ MORE
