  1. 1. Transition Metal Nitrides Alloy Design and Surface Transport Properties using Ab-initio and Classical Computational Methods

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Davide G. Sangiovanni; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]

    Abstract : Enhanced toughness in brittle ceramic materials, such as transition metal nitrides (TMN), is achieved by optimizing the occupancy of shear-sensitive metallic electronic-states. This is the major result of my theoretical research, aimed to solve an inherent long-standing problem for hard ceramic protective coatings: brittleness. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nanoplasmonic Alloy Hydrogen Sensors

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Ferry Nugroho; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; indirect nanoplasmonic sensing; plasmonic sensors; hydrogen sensors; polymers; fiber optics; nanofabrication; localized surface plasmon resonance; alloy nanoparticles; carbon capture and storage; sensors; palladium;

    Abstract : The hydrogen economy proposes hydrogen gas as the main energy carrier thanks to its high energy density and the possibility to produce it in a sustainable way without CO2 emission. However, the wide flammability range of hydrogen-air mixtures dictates that hydrogen sensors will be a mandatory accessory to any appliance or vehicle fueled by hydrogen. READ MORE

    Abstract : Do metal particles (including particles of pure metals, alloys, metal oxides and compounds) pose a hazard or risk to human health? In the light of this question, this thesis summarizes results from research conducted on metal particles, and describes the elaboration and implementation of an in vitro test methodology to study metal release from particles through corrosion and dissolution processes in synthetic biological media relevant for human exposure through inhalation/ingestion and dermal contact.Bioaccessible metals are defined as the pool of released metals from particles that potentially could be made available for absorption by humans or other organisms.
