    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phase transitions; disorder; Monte Carlo simulations; superconductivity; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Statistical physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Statistisk fysik;

    Abstract : Phase transitions and their critical scaling properties, especially in systems with disorder, are important both for our theoretical understanding of our environment, but also for their practical use in applications and materials in our everyday life. This thesis presents results from finite size scaling analysis of critical phenomena in systems with disorder, using high-precision Monte Carlo simulations and state of the art numerical methods.

  5. 5. Process-induced disorder of pharmaceutical materials Mechanisms and quantification of disorder

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : One of the most important prerequisites in the drug development is to attain a reproducible and robust product in terms of its nature, and its chemical and physical properties. This can be challenging, since the crystalline form of drugs and excipients can be directly transformed into the amorphous one during normal pharmaceutical processing, referred to as process-induced amorphisation or process-induced disorder.
