  1. 1. Screen Printed Large Area Sensors for Pressure Distribution Monitoring in Wheelchairs

    Author : Jawad Ahmad; Johan Sidén; Henrik Andersson; Xavier Crispin; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER;

    Abstract : A sedentary lifestyle can induce health related problems including pressure ulcers. Pro­longed sitting inadequacies constitute a risk for pressure ulcer to many individuals, in particular people with disabilities and re­duced mobility. READ MORE

  2. 2. Thermoelectric properties of conducting polymers

    Author : Olga Bubnova; Xavier Crispin; Magnus Berggren; Alan Kaiser; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Thermoelectric generation; Seebeck coefficient; conducting polymers; thermoelectric efficiency.;

    Abstract : According to different sources, from forty to sixty percent of the overall energy generated in the world today is squandered in waste heat. The existing energy conversion technologies are either close to their efficiency limits or too costly to justify their implementation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Electrochemical Reactions of Quinones at Conducting Polymer Electrodes

    Author : Canyan Che; Xavier Crispin; Mikhail Vagin; Magnus Jonsson; Viktor Gueskine; Mieczyslaw Lapkowski; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Proton-coupled multielectron transfer reactions are of great abundance in Nature. In particular, two-proton-two-electron transfers in quinone/hydroquinone redox couples are behind oxidative phosphorylation (ADP-to-ATP) and photosystem II. READ MORE

  4. 4. Photo-polymerization as a tool for engineering the active material in organic field-effect transistors

    Author : Andrzej Dzwilewski; Ludvig Edman; Xavier Crispin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Field-effect transistor; photo-polymerization; PCBM; C60; Fullerene; Physics; Fysik; fasta tillståndets fysik; Solid State Physics;

    Abstract : The emergence of organic semiconductors is exciting since it promises to open up for straightforward and low-cost fabrication of a wide range of efficient and novel electronic devices. However, in order for this promise to become reality it is critical that new and functional fabrication techniques are developed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermoelectric polymer-cellulose composite aerogels

    Author : Shaobo Han; Xavier Crispin; Simone Fabiano; Rachel Segalman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Thermoelectric materials are scrutinized as energy materials and sensing materials. Indeed, they convert thermal energy into electrical energy. In addition, those materials are actively sensitive to a temperature modification through the generation of an electric signal. READ MORE
