  1. 1. Surface Force and Friction : effects of adsorbed layers and surface topography

    Author : Xiaoyan Liu; Per Claesson; Bjorn Torger Stokke; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Friction; nanotribology; surface forces; diblock copolymer; lipid; QCM-D; AFM; optical reflectometry; neutron reflectivity; X-ray reflectivity; micro-patterned surface; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Interfacial features of polymers are a complex, fascinating topic, and industrially very important. There is clearly a need to understand interactions between polymer layers as they can be used for controlling surface properties, colloidal stability and lubrication. The aim of my Ph. READ MORE

  2. 2. Controlling DNA compaction and the interaction with model biomembranes

    Author : Marie-Louise Ainalem; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; model biomembrane; DNA compaction; cryo-TEM; null ellipsometry; dynamic light scattering; toroid; bilayer; neutron reflectivity; dendrimer; PAMAM; DNA; poly amido amine ;

    Abstract : The studies described in this thesis forms part of a larger collaborative project, Neonuclei, with the objective to design a module for packaging the negatively charged DNA into a ”neonucleus” with transcription competence. There are many applications that require control of DNA compaction, i.e. packaging or condensation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interfacial Properties of Lipid Liquid Crystalline Nanoparticles

    Author : Pauline Vandoolaeghe; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interaction; adsorption; surface; peptide; bilayer; cubic phase; monoolein; cubosome; lipid; liquid crystalline nanoparticles; ellipsometry; neutron reflectivity; QCM-D; SAXD;

    Abstract : Lipid liquid crystalline nanoparticles are studied for their potential as biocompatible carriers for pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic applications. Their potential as delivery vehicles is due to their nanometer size, their controllable structure and physical properties and their large carrying capacity of a wide range of molecules. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Structural Viewpoint of Magnetism in Fe and Co Based Superlattices

    Author : Matts Björck; Gabriella Andersson; Adrian Rennie; Thomas Hase; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physics; Magnetism; Multilayer; Superlattice; X-ray magnetic circular dichroism; X-ray diffraction; X-ray reflectivity; Neutron diffraction; Structural refinement; Interfaces; Fysik;

    Abstract : In order to understand the properties of thin film devices, knowledge of the material's structure is essential. The work presented here combines magnetic and structural characterization of the systems studied to gain a deeper physical understanding. READ MORE

  5. 5. 11B4C containing Ni/Ti neutron multilayer mirrors

    Author : Sjoerd Broekhuijsen; Fredrik Eriksson; Jens Birch; Thierry Bigault; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : The work in this thesis covers the design, growth and characterisation of neutron multilayers. The performance of these multilayers is highly dependent on the obtained interface width between the layers, even a modest improvement can offer a substantial increase in reflectivity performance.
