  1. 1. Seismic imaging of deep crustal reflectivity in Sweden and Iceland

    Author : Niklas Juhojuntti; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; seismic; reflectivity; Moho; crust; signal; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : Seismic reflection profiling, originally developed by the petroleum industry, was adapted to systematic imaging of deep structures some 25 years ago. In continental areas, these measurements often show weakly reflective upper crust and strongly reflective lower crust. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ethyl Cellulose Membranes used in Modified Release Formulations

    Author : Johan Hjärtstam; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; osmotic pumping; water permeability; drug release; reflectivity; ethyl cellulose; degree of substitution; mechanical strength;

    Abstract : Ethyl cellulose (EC) is a commonly used polymer in modified drug release formulations. The general aim of the present study was to investigate release mechanisms through non-porous EC membranes with hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) contents ranging from 0 to 30% by weight.

  3. 3. Surface Force and Friction : effects of adsorbed layers and surface topography

    Author : Xiaoyan Liu; Per Claesson; Bjorn Torger Stokke; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Friction; nanotribology; surface forces; diblock copolymer; lipid; QCM-D; AFM; optical reflectometry; neutron reflectivity; X-ray reflectivity; micro-patterned surface; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Interfacial features of polymers are a complex, fascinating topic, and industrially very important. There is clearly a need to understand interactions between polymer layers as they can be used for controlling surface properties, colloidal stability and lubrication. The aim of my Ph. READ MORE

  4. 4. Top-down Fabrication Technologies for High Quality III-V Nanostructures

    Author : Shagufta Naureen; Srinivasan Anand; Clivia M. Sotomayor Torres; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; III-V nanostructures; colloidal lithography; top-down fabrication; dry etching; quantum well; multilayer structures; nanowires; nanopillars; nanodisks; mono-layer etching; surface passivation; photoluminescence; carrier life time; total reflectivity; photonic crystals; nanomesh;

    Abstract : III-V nanostructures have attracted substantial research effort due to their interesting physical properties and their applications in new generation of ultrafast and high efficiency nanoscale electronic and photonic components. The advances in nanofabrication methods including growth/synthesis have opened up new possibilities of realizing one dimensional (1D) nanostructures as building blocks of future nanoscale devices.

  5. 5. Controlling DNA compaction and the interaction with model biomembranes

    Author : Marie-Louise Ainalem; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; model biomembrane; DNA compaction; cryo-TEM; null ellipsometry; dynamic light scattering; toroid; bilayer; neutron reflectivity; dendrimer; PAMAM; DNA; poly amido amine ;

    Abstract : The studies described in this thesis forms part of a larger collaborative project, Neonuclei, with the objective to design a module for packaging the negatively charged DNA into a ”neonucleus” with transcription competence. There are many applications that require control of DNA compaction, i.e. packaging or condensation. READ MORE
