    Abstract : Neurologically related injuries cause a similar number of deaths ascancer, and brain damage is the second commonest cause of death in theworld and probably the leading cause of permanent disability. Thedevastating effects of most cases of brain damage could be avoided if itwere detected and medical treatment initiated in time. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cold-Electron Bolometers fabricated with Direct Write Technology for Microwave Receiver systems

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Ernst Otto; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the development of microwave detector technology for cosmology instruments and THz imaging, including fabrication of SIN tunnel junctions for thermometry and bolometric detectors, and also phase switch circuits as a part of integrated microwave receiver systems. Cold-Electron Bolometers (CEB) based on Superconductor-Insulator-Normal metal (SIN) tunnel junctions have been developed for employment in sub-millimeter astronomical receivers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Compact Soft X-Ray Microscopy Sources, Optics and Instrumentation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Per Takman; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; soft x-ray microscopy; water window; compact; laser plasma; liquid jet; zone plate optics; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development of a sub-60-nm full-period resolution compact soft x-ray microscope operating in the water-window region (2.3-4.4 nm). Soft x-ray water-window microscopy is a powerful technique for high-resolution imaging of organic materials exploiting the natural contrast mechanism between carbon and oxygen, cf. READ MORE
