  1. 1. Effects of cold and hand-arm vibration on the peripheral neurosensory and vascular system : an occupational perspective

    Author : Daniel Carlsson; Jens Wahlström; Tohr Nilsson; Erik Nordh; Hans Pettersson; Tiina Ikäheimo; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hand-arm vibration; Raynaud’s phenomenon; paresthesia; sensation of cold; hand-arm vibration syndrome; quantitative sensory testing; cold sensitivity; cold; cold exposure; frostbite; Sweden; cold injury; military; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Abstract : Background In Swedish working life, exposure to cold and exposure to hand-arm vibration (HAV) are two common health hazards. Health effects of HAV in the neurosensory, vascular and musculoskeletal systems are collectively denoted hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), and have been thoroughly studied. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cold Sensitivity in injured and normal hands. Consequences for daily life

    Author : Ingela Carlsson; Malmö Handkirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Behavioural treatment; cold sensitivity; Cold Intolerance Symptom Severity questionnaire; cold intolerance; Cold Sensitivity Severity scale; hand injury; health-related quality of life; hand-arm vibration syndrome; occupation; Potential Work Exposure Scale;

    Abstract : Cold sensitivity is a common and persistent complaint after various hand injuries and diseases. The general aim of the thesis was to investigate the consequences of cold sensitivity for daily life in patients with traumatic hand injuries and hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Cold-Electron Bolometer with Superconductor-Insulator-Normal Metal Tunnel Junctions

    Author : Ian Jasper Agulo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; temperature sensitivity; cryogenfree; power sensitivity; noise equivalent power; cold-electron bolometer; SIN tunnel junctions; electron cooling;

    Abstract : The Cold-Electron Bolometer (CEB) is an ultrasensitive device designed for the detection of radiation in the terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The key to its sensitivity is the electron cooling of the absorber by the superconductor-insulator-normal metal (SIN) tunnel junction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cold exposure and health : A study on neurological and vascular hand symptoms in northern Sweden

    Author : Albin Stjernbrandt; Jens Wahlström; Ingrid Liljelind; Tohr Nilsson; Ellen Jørum; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cold climate; Sweden; Hand; Frostbite; Raynaud disease; Peripheral nerve injuries; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Abstract : Background: Living in a cold climate is associated with several adverse health effects. The main purpose of this thesis was to describe cold exposure characteristics in northern Sweden, and investigate the associations between such exposure and the reporting of neurological and vascular hand symptoms.

  5. 5. Ultrasensitive Cold-Electron Bolometer

    Author : Ian Jasper Agulo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; responsivity; electron cooling; cold-electron bolometer CEB ; SIN tunnel junctions; superconducting cold-electron bolometer SCEB ; noise equivalent power;

    Abstract : The Cold-Electron Bolometer (CEB) is an ultrasensitive device designed for the detection of cosmic microwave background radiation. The key to its sensitivity is the electron cooling of the absorber by the superconductor-insulator-normal metal (SIN) tunnel junction. READ MORE
