    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tuberculosis; HIV AIDS; collaborative activities; Northwest Region; Cameroon.; Public health science; Folkhälsovetenskap; folkhälsa; Public health;

    Abstract : Introduction The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic has led to the upsurge of tuberculosis (TB) infection globally, but most especially in areas with high HIV prevalence. In the past, there was lack of a coordinated global and national response between TB and HIV programmes to curb the devastating impacts of both infections. READ MORE

  2. 2. Monitoring and control of laser beam butt joint welding

    Author : Morgan Nilsen; Anna-Karin Christiansson; Fredrik Sikström; Michael Schmidt; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Laser beam welding; Optical sensors; Joint tracking; Varying gap; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Laser beam welding is one important technology in automated production. It has several advantages, such as the ability to produce deep and narrow welds giving limited heat induced deformations. The laser beam welding process is however sensitive to how the high power laser is positioned with regards to the joint position. READ MORE

  3. 3. Technology and properties of InP-based photonic crystal structures and devices

    Author : Naeem Shahid; Srinivasan Anand; Rob W. vad der Heijden; KTH; []
    Keywords : Integrated optics materials; Photonic crystals; Planar waveguides; Dispersion; Band-gap; Mode-gap; mini-stopband; InP; Nanostructure fabrication; dry etching; mass transport; material reflow; reliability; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : Photonic crystals (PhCs) are periodic dielectric structures that exhibit a photonic band gap; a range of wavelengths for which light propagation is forbidden. 2D PhCs exhibit most of the properties as their three dimension counterparts with a compatibility with standard semiconductor processing techniques such as epitaxial growth, electron beam lithography, Plasma deposition/etching and electromechanical lapping/polishing.

    Abstract : Consumption Dynamics under Time-Varying Unemployment Risk We study the response of households' demand for durable goods to fluctuations in unemployment risk. First, using survey data, we document that household durable expenditures react strongly to unemployment risk, while the effect on nondurable expenditures is indistinguishable from zero. READ MORE

  5. 5. Model Order Reduction Based on Semidefinite Programming

    Author : Aivar Sootla; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; model reduction; parameterized model reduction; nu-gap metric; semidefinite programming; frequency response matching.;

    Abstract : The main topic of this PhD thesis is complexity reduction of linear time-invariant models. The complexity in such systems is measured by the number of differential equations forming the dynamical system. This number is called the order of the system. READ MORE
