  1. 1. Self-doped Conjugated Polyelectrolytes for Bioelectronics Applications

    Author : Erica Zeglio; Olle Inganäs; George Malliaras; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Self-doped conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs) are a class of conducting polymers constituted of a π-conjugated backbone and charged side groups. The ionic groups provide the counterions needed to balance the charged species formed in the CPEs backbones upon oxidation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multifunctional magnetic materials prepared by Pulsed Laser Deposition

    Author : Sandeep Nagar; Lyuba Belova; K. Venkat Rao; Prashanth Kamath; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Magnetic materials; thin films; pulsed laser depsoition; spintronics; chromites; MgO; NEMS; MEMS;

    Abstract :      Pulsed LASER deposition (PLD) is widely recognized as excellent deposition technique owing to stoichiometric transfer of target material, easy preparation and high quality. Thin films from few nanometers to micrometer regime can be fabricated with equal ease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Neutron and X-ray Surface Scattering Reveals the Morphology of Soft Matter Thin Films

    Author : Calvin Brett; Daniel Söderberg; Stephan V. Roth; Mats Johansson; Orlando Rojas; KTH; []

    Abstract : The last decades have been overshadowed by reports about the seemingly endless increase use of fossil-based resources. With the development of new products, our mindset is changing so that we more and more need to consider sustainability in our daily lives. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessment of acetabular cup wear with computed tomography and influence of surface roughness on wear of materials for hip prostheses

    Author : Anneli Jedenmalm; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hip prostheses; Computed Tomography; Surface roughness; UHMWPE; Wear; Coating; γ-irradiation; pin-on-disc; hip simulator; Other materials science; Övrig teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Over one million hip prostheses are implanted in patients worldwide each year and the need is increasing as the patient group of younger and more active patients is increasing. Many parameters affect the longevity of the implant, where aseptic loosening caused by wear debris is the most common reason for revision. READ MORE
