  1. 1. Technology Platforms: Organizing and Assessing Technological Knowledge to Support its Reuse in New Applications

    Author : Daniel Corin Stig; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; technology management; knowledge reuse; technology platforms; platform thinking; core capabilities; technology development; technology reuse; technology transfer; knowledge management; knowledge repositories;

    Abstract : Companies that develop a wide range of products often strive to exploit opportunities for synergy among them. Many products that cannot share components can still offer opportunities for synergy as they build upon the same technologies and know-how for their development and production. READ MORE

  2. 2. Out of the Dark and into the Light - Microscopic Analysis of Bright, Dark and Trapped Excitons

    Author : Maja Feierabend; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; density matrix formalism; localized states; impurities; dark excitons; strain; transition metal dichalcogenides; Bloch equations;

    Abstract : Atomically thin transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have been in the focus of current research due to their efficient light-matter interaction, as well as the remarkably strong Coulomb interaction that leads to tightly bound excitons. Due to their unique band structure, TMDs show a variety of optically accessible bright and inaccessible dark excitons. READ MORE

  3. 3. Applications of Microwave Heating of Foods

    Author : Birgitta Wäppling-Raaholt; Birgitta Raaholt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; modelling of microwave heating; microwave-assisted HTST processing; product quality.; heat transfer; microwave heating; microwave oven; heating uniformity; microwave cavity; tubular microwave in-flow processing;

    Abstract : AbstractMicrowave heating of foods offers rapid and flexible heating both for consumer and industrial applications, with several advantages, such as reduced processing time (due to volumetric heating and reduced coming-up times (heating time required to reach the desired target temperature), selective heating, increased process flexibility and efficient heating (volumetric heating of the food does not require heating of a surrounding medium or package). However, successful installations requireknowledge in process design. READ MORE

  4. 4. Optical manipulation and heating of gold nanoparticles near interfaces

    Author : Daniel Andrén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LSPR spectroscopy; particle-surface separation distance; thermal reshaping; TIRM; nanomotor; plasmonics; photothermal effects; Brownian dynamics; gold nanorod; optical tweezers;

    Abstract : By focusing laser light to small volumes, its momentum can be used to trap and manipulate objects in the size range from cells down to single atoms. Devices using this effect are called optical tweezers, and have found use in measuring and applying minuscule forces and torques, contributed to deepening our knowledge of molecular motors, unraveling the mechanics of cells and DNA, and better understand statistical mechanics and hydrodynamic interactions at the nanoscale.

  5. 5. Exploration of Metal Composites and Carbon Nanotubes for Thermal Interfaces

    Author : Josef Hansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Carbon nanotubes; Solder; Thermal interface materials;

    Abstract : Modern microelectronics are perpetually pushing against limitations caused by inadequate heat dissipation. One of the critical bottlenecks is at the interfaces between different materials and components. READ MORE
