  1. 1. Forecasting High Yield Corporate Bond Industry Excess Return

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Carlos Junior Lopez Vydrin; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we apply unsupervised and supervised statistical learning methods on the high-yield corporate bond market with the goal of predicting its future excess return. We analyse the excess return of industry based indices of high-yield corporate bonds belonging to the Chemical, Metals, Paper, Building Materials, Packaging, Telecom, and Electric Utility industry.

  3. 3. 2D Neutron Imaging with 10B-Based Multi-Blade Detector

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik

    Author : Tõnu Ilves; [2018]
    Keywords : thermal; neutron; imaging; 2D; Multi-Blade; detector; boron; boron-10; nuclear physics; multi wire proportional chamber; digitizer; ESS; European Spallation Source; surface study; reflectometry; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In the field of thermal-neutron imaging, the Multi-Blade detector concept and design, being developed for the upcoming European Spallation Source in Lund, Sweden, is unique. The current report presents, for the first time, the neutron-imaging capabilities of a boron-10-based Multi-Blade thermal-neutron detector, measured at a reflectometry instrument at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, England under high spallation neutron flux.

  4. 4. Delamination of Cross-laminated timber and its impact on fire development | Focusing on different types of adhesives

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Eric Johansson; Anton Svenningsson; [2018]
    Keywords : CLT; cross-laminated timber; X-lam; delamination; engineered timber; adhesive; glue; tall timber buildings; timber load-bearing structures; charring rate; NFPA; Paramteric fires; standard testing furnace; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the recent decade, the interest of building taller all-timber structures using engineered timber materials such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) has increased substantially. On the other hand, there’s also a significant resistance and fear concerning the fire safety of buildings with wood-based load-bearing structures. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ferroelectricity in nanocrystalline Hf0.5Zr0.5O2 thin films

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Lun Sang; [2018]
    Keywords : ferroelectricity; Hf0.5Zr0.5O2; GIXRD; XRR; Technology and Engineering; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Hafnium dioxide (HfO_2) based thin films doped with various dopants (Si, Ge, Al, Gd, Sr, Zr) have been found to exhibit ferroelectricity. These dopants were found to stabilize the III orthorhombic phase in the hafnium oxide based thin films. READ MORE
