  1. 1. Caenorhabditis elegans as a model to elucidate host-pathogen interactions for human bacterial pathogens

    Author : Xiao Hui Sem; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The soil nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is a popular host utilized to model bacterial virulence and microbial pathogenesis in vivo. This thesis explores the use of C. elegans for the study of host-pathogen interactions for two Gram-negative bacteria, Burkholderia thailandensis and Salmonella enterica. READ MORE

  3. 3. The influence of Al alloy microstructure on conversion coating formation

    Author : Salil Sainis; Caterina Zanella; Ehsan Ghassemali; Jönköping University; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aluminium alloys; cast Al-Si alloys; conversion coating treatment; cerium; localized deposition; surface pre-treatments; microstructure; SEM; FIB-SEM; AFM-SKPFM; aluminiumlegeringar; gjutna Al-Si legeringar; omvandlingsbeläggningar; cerium; lokaliserad deposition; ytförbehandlingar; microstruktur SEM; FIB-SEM; AFM-SKPFM;

    Abstract : The formation of conversion coatings based on Ce, trivalent Cr and Ti/Zr is triggered by the local pH increase at cathodic IM sites of the aluminium alloy microstructure. The pH gradient is created over the cathodic intermetallic (IM) sites of the microstructure and its intensity is influenced by their activity which depends on their chemical composition, their size, and spatial distribution.

  4. 4. Initial Oxidation of β-NiAl(Pt) Coatings and Model Alloys

    Author : Henrik Svensson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; FIB-SEM; SEM; β; TEM; Diffusion Coatings; Metal-Oxide Interface; High Temperature Oxidation; Cavities; Platinum; -NiAl;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to investigate the oxidation properties of NiAl coatings and model materials during high temperature oxidation. One of the important issues was to elucidate the beneficial role of Pt additions. A better understanding of the involved processes provides a key for the further improvement of the coatings performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microscopy of high temperature oxidation of iron and some stainless steels

    Author : Torbjörn Jonsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : water vapour; sulphur dioxide; FIB; X20; stainless steel; 353MA; EDX; KCl; FIB SEM; SEM; microstructure; TEM; iron; High-temperature oxidation; in-situ ESEM;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the high temperature oxidation of iron and some stainless steels. The oxide scales, as well as the subjacent metal, were investigated using a range of electron and ion microscopy techniques, including SEM, TEM, EDX and FIB. The aim was to link the microstructural observations to the oxidation mechanisms of the materials. READ MORE
