  1. 1. Between square and circle : A study on the behaviour of polygonal steel profiles under compression

    Author : Panagiotis Manoleas; Ove Lagerqvist; Efthymios Koltsakis; Leroy Gardner; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; polygonal; RCPS; plate buckling; shell buckling; towers; transmission lines; wind turbines; high strength steel; Stålbyggnad; Steel Structures;

    Abstract : The present study explores the structural properties of regular convex polygonal cross section (RCPS). Such profiles are commonly used to construct masts and towers, e.g.  transmission towers, light poles etc. READ MORE

  2. 2. Single Molecule Detection : Microfluidic Automation and Digital Quantification

    Author : Malte Kühnemund; Mats Nilsson; Ulf Landegren; Sten Linnarsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; single molecule; digital; rolling circle amplification; magnetic particle; padlock probe; microfluidics; resistive pulse sensing; lab on chip; mobile phone microscopy; enrichment; sequencing;

    Abstract : Much of recent progress in medical research and diagnostics has been enabled through the advances in molecular analysis technologies, which now permit the detection and analysis of single molecules with high sensitivity and specificity. Assay sensitivity is fundamentally limited by the efficiency of the detection method used for read-out. READ MORE

  3. 3. Single-Molecule Detection and Optical Scanning in Miniaturized Formats

    Author : Jonas Melin; Fredrik Nikolajeff; Mats Nilsson; Hugh Fan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biotechnology; microfluidics; single-molecule detection; MOEMS; μTAS; lab-on-a-chip; RCA; thermoplastics; injection molding; hot embossing; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : In later years polymer replication techniques have become a frequently employed fabrication method for microfluidic and micro-optical devices. This thesis describes applications and further developments of microstructures replicated in polymer materials. READ MORE

  4. 4. Digital Electrical DNA Sensing

    Author : Maoxiang Guo; Wouter van der Wijngaart; Fredrik Westerlund; KTH; []
    Keywords : DNA detection; thiol-ene-epoxy; rolling circle amplification; digital measurement; DNA stretching; microwell-array; gold nanowires; electrical measurement; specificity; limit of detection; liquid storage; disease diagnosis; lab-on-a-chip; point-of-care.;

    Abstract : Molecule detection is a workhorse in life sciences and medicine, for example in cancer diagnosis and virus and bacterial detection. DNA analysis can provide vital information about the state of a host organism and its medical and health condition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pathways to future cropland : Assessing uncertainties in socio-economic processes by applying a global land-use model

    Author : Kerstin Engstrom; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; land-use and land cover change; socio-economic modelling; scenarios; uncertainties;

    Abstract : Global agricultural production almost tripled within the last five decades. The production increase wasbased on expanding cropland and pastures, as well as the intensification of agriculture, including increased use ofhigh yielding crop varieties, machinery, irrigation, artificial fertilisers, and pesticides.
