  1. 11. Studies of catalyst sintering during operating conditions

    Author : Pooya Tabib Zadeh Adibi; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanoparticle sintering; operando spectroscopy; catalyst deactivation; indirect nanoplasmonic sensing; platinum; sintering kinetics;

    Abstract : The damaging effect of pollutants from exhaust gas of combustion engines on the human health and the environment is well recognized. Since the 70s, the three-way catalytic converter (TWC) has substantially improved the urban air quality by simultaneous conversion of CO, NOx and unburned hydrocarbons to O2 , N2 , CO2 and H2O.

  2. 12. Nanoplasmonic Alloy Hydrogen Sensors

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Ferry Nugroho; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; indirect nanoplasmonic sensing; plasmonic sensors; hydrogen sensors; polymers; fiber optics; nanofabrication; localized surface plasmon resonance; alloy nanoparticles; carbon capture and storage; sensors; palladium;

    Abstract : The hydrogen economy proposes hydrogen gas as the main energy carrier thanks to its high energy density and the possibility to produce it in a sustainable way without CO2 emission. However, the wide flammability range of hydrogen-air mixtures dictates that hydrogen sensors will be a mandatory accessory to any appliance or vehicle fueled by hydrogen. READ MORE

  3. 13. Monitoring insect defoliation in forests with time-series of satellite based remote sensing data - near real-time methods and impact on the carbon balance

    University dissertation from Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, Lund University

    Author : Per-Ola Olsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Forests are of major importance to climate change mitigation due to their strong capacity to sequester carbon. Nearly half of the terrestrial carbon is stored in forests, and forests contribute to half of the terrestrial primary productivity, with forests in the mid- and high latitude ecosystems as major contributors.

  4. 14. Microsystems for Harsh Environments

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Stefan Knaust; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microsystems; harsh environments; high pressures; high temperatures; supercritical microfluidics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrosystemteknik; Engineering Science with specialization in Microsystems Technology;

    Abstract : When operating microsystems in harsh environments, many conventionally used techniques are limiting. Further, depending on if the demands arise from the environment or the conditions inside the system, different approaches have to be used. READ MORE

  5. 15. Functional proteomics of protein phosphorylation in algal photosynthetic membranes

    University dissertation from Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Maria Turkina; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein phosphorylation; mass spectrometry; photosynthesis; proteomics; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Plants, green algae and cyanobacteria perform photosynthetic conversion of sunlight into chemical energy in the permanently changing natural environment. For successful survival and growth photosynthetic organisms have developed complex sensing and signaling acclimation mechanisms. READ MORE
