  1. 1. In situ remediation of contaminated sediments using thin-layer capping : effectiveness in contaminant retention and ecological implications

    Author : Göran Samuelsson; Jonas Gunnarsson; Maria Granberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Thin layer capping; sediment remediation; activated carbon; contaminated sediment; benthic community; Systems Ecology; systemekologi;

    Abstract : Hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOCs) often reside in sediment sorbed to particles, most tightly to particles with high content of organic carbon. If persistent, such pollutants can accumulate in the sediment for many years and constitute a contamination risk for sediment-living organisms and organisms at higher trophic levels, including humans.

    Abstract : Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are hydrophobic substances that readily sorb to organic matter in particles and colloids instead of being freely dissolved in the water phase. This sorption affects the bio­availability and environmental transport of the POPs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Magnetization Dynamics in Ferromagnetic Thin Films : Evaluation of Different Contributions to Damping in Co2FeAl and FeCo Film Structures

    Author : Serkan Akansel; Peter Svedlindh; Olof Karis; Erik Wahlström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; spintronics; Gilbert damping parameter; magnetization dynamics; ferromagnetic resonance; Heusler alloys; magnetic thin films; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : Static and dynamic magnetic properties of Co2FeAl and Fe65Co35 alloys have been investigated. Co2FeAl films were deposited at different temperatures and the deposition parameters were optimized with respect to structural and magnetic properties. As a result, a film with B2 crystalline phase was obtained without any post-annealing process. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring the Magnetism of Ultra Thin 3d Transition Metal Films

    Author : Cecilia Andersson; Olof Karis; Dimitri Arvanitis; Chi-Chang Kao; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physics; thin film; xmcd; xrms; exafs; anisotropy; magnetism; Fe; Ni; Co; Ag; Cu; Fysik;

    Abstract : In this thesis the magnetic and structural properties of ultra-thin 3d transition metals films have been investigated, in particular Fe, Ni and Co films. X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism (XMCD) has provided element specific spin (ms ) and orbital (ml ) moments per atom by utilizing the magneto optic sum-rules. READ MORE
