  1. 1. Biomimetic surfaces Preparation, characterization and application

    University dissertation from Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Annika Borgh; Bo Liedberg; Fredrik Höök; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Self-assembled monolayers; biomimetic surfaces; phosphates; antifreeze; surface spectroscopy; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Atomic and molecular physics Molecular physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Atom- och molekylfysik Molekylfysik;

    Abstract : I denna avhandling beskrivs tillverkning, karaktärisering och tillämpning av ett antal biomimetiska ytor. Biomimetik är att härma naturen och grundtanken är att titta på hur naturen löst liknande problemställningar. READ MORE

  2. 2. Acute inflammation on model biomaterial surfaces : studies on proteins, neutrophils and platelets

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jonas Wetterö; Ulf Sjöbring; [2002]

    Abstract : Although most biomedical devices are non-toxic, disturbed acute and chronic inflammation and the lack of integration in tissues is a concern. At the time of biomaterial insertion, protein adsorption onto material surfaces precedes cell adhesion and is believed to alter unfavorably the acute inflammatory response and the subsequent tissue healing.

  3. 3. Cam Roller Contact : Surfaces and Tribology

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Frédéric Cabanettes; Bengt-Göran Rosén; Ulf Olofsson; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wear reduction; camshaft; roller; surface topography; relocation; elasto plastic rough contact; elasto hydrodynamic lubrication; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Mechanical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : The automotive industry and the design of engines are strongly ruled by performance and legislation demands. In the valve train, mechanical components such as camshafts and rollers are defined by specifications including more and more constraints concerning their ability to face wear thus prolonging lifetime.

  4. 4. Phthalocyanines on Surfaces Monolayers, Films and Alkali Modified Structures

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Katharina Nilson; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atomic and molecular physics; Phthalocyanines; Surface Science; X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy XPS ; X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy XAS ; Scanning Tunneling Microscopy STM ; Density Functional Theory DFT ; Metal-free Phthalocyanine; Iron Phthalocyanine; Zinc Phthalocyanine; Gold; Graphite; Aluminium; Indium Antimony; Molecular adsorption; Monolayer; Film; Alkali; Geometrical structure; Electronic structure; Doping; Atom- och molekylfysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : The Phthalocyanines (Pc’s) are a group of macro-cyclic molecules, widely investigated due to the possibility to use them in a variety of applications. Electronic and geometrical structure investigations of molecular model systems of Pc’s adsorbed on surfaces are important for a deeper understanding of the functionality of different Pc-based devices.

  5. 5. Interactions of cellulose and model surfaces

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Johanna Stiernstedt; Mark Rutland; William Ducker; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Surface and colloid chemistry; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Yt- och kolloidkemi;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is fundamental surface force and friction studies of silica and cellulose surfaces, performed mainly with the atomic force microscope (AFM). The normal interactions between model cellulose surfaces have been found to consist of a longer range double layer force with a short range steric interaction, the nature of which is extensively discussed.
