  1. 1. Modeling and Compensation of Polarization Effects in Fiber-Optic Communication Systems

    Author : Cristian Bogdan Czegledi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nonlinear compensation; Channel model; model-based; polarization demultiplexing; polarization-mode dispersion; polarization drift; backpropagation; PMD; DBP;

    Abstract : Optical communication systems that exploit the orthogonality between two polarizations of light convey information over optical fibers by modulating data over the two polarizations. In an idealized scenario, the two polarizations propagate through the fiber without interfering. READ MORE

  2. 2. Uncharted Waters : Non-target analysis of disinfection by-products in drinking water

    Author : Anna Andersson; David Bastviken; Henrik Kylin; David Reckhow; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water treatment technologies; chemical disinfection; FT-ICR MS; bioassays; Vattenreningstekniker; klor; kloramin; FT-ICR MS; effektbaserad analys;

    Abstract : Disinfection by-products (DBPs) are potentially toxic compounds formed when drinking water is treated with disinfectants, such as chlorine or chloramine. A large proportion of the exposure to DBPs is still unknown and the health risks observed through epidemiological studies cannot be explained by DBPs known today. READ MORE

  3. 3. Vitamin D and Vitamin D-binding Protein in Psoriasis and Effects of Treatment

    Author : Maria Siekkeri Vandikas; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; psoriasis; vitamin D; vitamin D-binding protein; phototherapy; tumor necrosis factor α inhibitor;

    Abstract : Background: Topical vitamin D analogues constitute an established treatment for psoriasis but the role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of the disease remains controversial. The in loco production and immunomodulatory effects of vitamin D need to be elucidated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vitamin D in Somali women living in Sweden

    Author : Taye Demeke; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Introduction: Sunlight is the major source of Vitamin D synthesis. Information regarding vitamin D, bone status and general health in Somali women living in Sweden is limited. Vitamin D binding protein (DBP) is the major carrier of most vitamin D metabolites. It is not clear whether DBP is genetically determined or influenced by external factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hypertension, blood pressure, cognition and cerebral blood flow in the cohort of "Men born 1914"

    Abstract : "Men born 1914" is a population based cohort study of the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease. Five hundred men, born 1914, were examined at the age of 68 and 185 of them were re-examined at 81 years of age. READ MORE
