    University dissertation from Institutionen för flygteknik

    Author : Christophe Paget; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : embedded; piezoceramic; piezoelectric; transducer; composite; structural; integrity; health monitoring; damage detection; Lamb waves; wavelets; normal-mode expansion; FE-method; SLMT;

    Abstract : The objectives of the thesis work were to study theinteraction between embedded piezoceramic transducers andcomposite structures as well as determine techniques tosimplify the Lamb waves analysis. Firstly, this studyconsidered the design of the embedded piezoceramic transducers. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Four-Quadrant Transducer System for Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Erik Nordlund; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electrical engineering; Electrical Machines; Hybrid Vehicles; Elektroteknik; TECHNOLOGY Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics Electrical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik Elektroteknik;

    Abstract : In this thesis a hybrid electrical powertrain called the Four Quadrant Transducer (4QT) has been evaluated through different driving simulations, which later resulted in the manufacture of a prototype.The simulation of a 12 metric ton distribution truck showed that the 4QT system can reduce the fuel consumption by approximately 30 % during the FTP75 drive cycle.

  3. 3. Maximum a posteriori deconvulution of ultrasonic data with applications in nondestructive testing : Multiple transducer and robustness is

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tomas Olofsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Ultrasonic pulse-echo testing; nondestructive testing; maximum a posteriori estimation; linear minimum mean squared error estimation; robust filtering; multivariable filtering; sparse deconvolution; Materialvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; Signal Processing; signalbehandling;

    Abstract : In the thesis, various aspects of deconvolution of ultrasonic pulse-echo signals in nondestructive testing are treated. The deconvolution problem is formulated as estimation of a reflection sequence which is the impulse characteristic of the inspected object and the estimation is performed using either maximum a posteriori (MAP) or linear minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimators.

  4. 4. Development of Nanoimprint Lithography for Fabrication of Electrochemical Transducers

    University dissertation from Division of Solid State Physics, P.O. Box 118, SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Marc Beck; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electrochemistry; interdigitated array; anti-adhesion; anti-sticking; stamp; mold; monolayer deposition; Fysik; post-imprint processes; Physics; transducer; nanoimprint lithography; sensor; Fysicumarkivet A:2003:Beck;

    Abstract : This thesis gives an overview about the current status of nanoimprint lithography, a relatively new nanofabrication tool. The technology is capable for parallel mass production of nm-structured features having a resolution below 10 nm and is usable with high throughput on full wafer scale. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards measuring quantum sound

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Maria Ekström; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; surface acoustic wave; interdigital transducer; artificial atom; qubit; superconducting circuits; cryogenic temperature; phonon; gigahertz frequency; quantum acoustics; unidirectional transducer;

    Abstract : One of the most fundamental phenomena occurring in nature is the interaction between single atoms and electromagnetic fields. This is studied in quantum optics to probe the quantum nature of the system. In appended Paper I, we demonstrated that an artificial atom can couple to propagating sound, which is the acoustic analogue of quantum optics. READ MORE
