  1. 1. Quantitative vulnerability analysis of electric power networks

    Author : Åke J. Holmgren; Torbjörn Thedéen; Lars-Göran Mattsson; Terje Aven; KTH; []
    Keywords : Safety Analysis; vulnerability; homeland security; risk analysis; network; electric power system; blackout; power law; statistical analysis; graph theory; branching process; game theory; Säkerhetsanalys; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Disturbances in the supply of electric power can have serious implications for everyday life as well as for national (homeland) security. A power outage can be initiated by natural disasters, adverse weather, technical failures, human errors, sabotage, terrorism, and acts of war. READ MORE

  2. 2. Design and development of electrochemical sensors with application in bioanalysis

    Author : Kinga Zor; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bioanalysis; electrochemistry; sensor; biosensor; miniaturization; real sample; immunoassay; μTAS;

    Abstract : There is a continuous search for reliable, robust, easy to use, portable and cost effective analytical tools with applications in food industry, biomedicine, environmental monitoring and homeland security. The main focus of this thesis is the development of electrochemical (bio)sensors and bioanalysis systems (to be applied in two major fields of interest: food & beverage industry and biomedical research) for monitoring key analytes in complex matrices, such as: meat samples, fermentation broths, and cell culture media.

  3. 3. Fabrication and characterization of ZnO nanostructures for sensing and photonic device applications

    Author : Syed M. Usman Ali; Magnus Willander; Omer Nour; Frank Bier; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Nanotechnology; zinc oxide; nanowires nanorods; nanotubes; nanoporous nanoflakes; electrochemical sensor and photonic devices;

    Abstract : Nanotechnology is an emerging inter-disciplinary paradigm which encompasses diverse fields of science and engineering converge at the nanoscale. This nanoscale science and nanostructure engineering have well demonstrated in the fabrication of sensors/transducers devices with faster response time and better sensitivity then the planer version of the sensor’s configurations.

  4. 4. Development of Capacitive Biosensors for Monitoring of Bacterial Toxins and Other Biomolecules

    Author : Mahmoud Labib; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; self-assembled monolayers; competitive capacitive biosensing; cholera toxin; Capacitive biosensor; surface plasmon resonance; staphylococcal enterotoxin B; nanogold; human immunoglobulin G; glucose;

    Abstract : Sensing and quantification of biomolecules are becoming increasingly important in medical diagnostics, bioprocess technology and recently in homeland security. The majority of techniques currently employed to interrogate biomolecules require some type of radio-, enzymatic- or fluorescent-labeling. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of ethnic identity in care of elderly Finnish immigrants

    Author : Kristiina Heikkilä; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Older people; immigrants; Finns; health care; elderly care; culturally congruent care; wishes and expectations; experiences; perceptions; ethnicity; mother language; environment; at-homeness;

    Abstract : The role of ethnicity in care of elderly Finnish immigrants Most Western countries are becoming increasingly multicultural because of immigration. Many of these immigrants grow old in a second homeland and will need health and elderly care in the future. In Sweden, the largest immigrant group comes from its neighbouring country, Finland.
