  1. 1. Optical remote sensing of industrial gas emission fluxes

    Author : John Johansson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optical remote sensing; DOAS; gas emission; absorption spectroscopy; VOC; flux measurement; solar occultation; FTIR; formaldehyde;

    Abstract : Mobile optical remote sensing techniques offer promising possibilities to quantify and geographically attribute local industrial gaseous emissions to the atmosphere. Studies have repeatedly shown that such emissions are often poorly understood, underestimated, and thereby not properly accounted for in emission inventories and regional atmospheric chemistry models, especially for emissions of VOCs.

  2. 2. Studies of Volcanic Plumes with Spectroscopic Remote Sensing Techniques

    Author : Santiago Arellano; [2013]

    Abstract : Volcanism is a widespread phenomenon on Earth and other planetary bodies. Terrestrial volcanoes are shallow manifestations of deep and complex mechanisms of heat and mass transport and play an important role in the formation and change of the atmosphere and the natural landscape.

    Abstract : This thesis presents a novel approach to integrate chemical vapor deposition (CVD) graphene into silicon micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) to fabricate different graphene based MEMS/NEMS structures and explore mechanical properties of graphene as well as their applications such as acceleration sensing, humidity sensing and CO2 sensing. The thesis also presents a novel method of characterization of CVD graphene grain boundary based defects. READ MORE

  4. 4. Spatially resolved gas sensing

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Mikael Löfdahl; Werner Moritz; [2001]

    Abstract : By using a Scanning Light Pulse Technique (SLPT) the gas response of catalytic Metal-Insulator semiconductor (MIS) devices can be spatially resolved.The application of SLPT to gas sensitive MIS devices can be divided into two areas. READ MORE

  5. 5. Atomic Scale Design of Clean Energy Materials Efficient Solar Energy Conversion and Gas Sensing

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jawad Nisar; Rajeev Ahuja; Puru Jena; [2012]
