  1. 1. Light shapes spaces : experience of distribution of light and visual spatial boundaries

    Author : Ulrika Wänström Lindh; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Practise-based design research; distribution of light; lighting design; architecture; enclosure; perceived dimensions; atmosphere; light zones; light topography; visual spatial boundaries; Practise-based design research; distribution of light; lighting design; architecture; enclosure; perceived dimensions; atmosphere; light zones; light topography; visual spatial boundaries;

    Abstract : Light enables us to experience space. The distribution of light is vital for spatial experience but has not been the main focus of previous research on lighting. The lighting designer’s professional knowledge is to a great extent experience-based and tacit. READ MORE

  2. 2. Light scattering and absorption in tissue - models and measurements

    Author : Annika M K Enejder; Atomfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tissue optical properties; Light absorption; Fluorescence spectroscopy; Atomic and molecular physics; NIR spectroscopy; Fysicumarkivet A:1997:Enejder; Light scattering; Atom- och molekylärfysik;

    Abstract : In this work a number of theoretical models, describing light propagation in matter, have been applied to and developed for the examination of tissue. The aim was to model the light scattering and absorption in tissue in order to improve the understanding of underlying mechanisms of laser-based diagnostics and treatment modalities utilised for cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

  3. 3. Shadows and light : examining community mental health competence in North India

    Author : Kaaren Mathias; Isabel Goicolea; Miguel San Sebastian; Michelle Kermode; Kuruthukulangara Sebastian Jacob; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Global mental health; Gender; Health determinants; India; Mental health competence; Social distance; Social exclusion; Caregiver; Depression; folkhälsa; Public health;

    Abstract : BackgroundGlobally, there is increasing emphasis on the importance of understanding the ways in which social inequality and injustice impact individual and community mental health. Set in the states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, India, this thesis examines the complex relationships between individuals, communities and the social environment in relation to mental health.

  4. 4. Radiobiological investigations of proton and light ion therapy

    Author : Nina Tilly; Michael Scholz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiobiology; Monte Carlo method; Radiotherapy; high-energy instrumentation; Protons; Light ions; RBE; LET; Radiobiological models; Radiobiologi; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : During the last decade, the interest in proton and light ion beam therapy has increased considerably and several new centres are planned around the world. These particles have a large advantage due to their sharp physical dose distributions as compared to conventional radiotherapy beams. READ MORE

  5. 5. Blinded by the light : developing models of settlement and mobility with the use of spectroscopy and exploratory methods

    Author : Mattias Sjölander; Philip I. Buckland; Johan Linderholm; Peter Jordan; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; archaeology; hunter-gatherer; spectroscopy; chemometrics; quartz; quartzite; bifacial; lithics; geoarchaeology; exploratory; spatial analysis; modelling; arkeologi; jakt- och fångstfolk; spektroskopi; kemometri; kvarts; kvartsit; bifacial; flathuggen; geoarkeologi; rumslig analys; modellering; Archaeology; arkeologi; environmental archaeology; miljöarkeologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis an exploratory approach has been used to study settlement and mobility among hunter-gatherer societies in Northern Sweden during the 2 000 – 0 BC period. The focus has been on developing the topics of bifacial point use and raw material management of quartzand quartzite materials. READ MORE
