  1. 1. Who I Am and Who You See

    University essay from Konstfack/Ädellab

    Author : Teresa Alton Borgelin; [2021]
    Keywords : jewellery; identity; brooch; layers; categorisation; norms; skin; adoption; belonging; craft;

    Abstract : Now and then other people’s comments and/or behaviour reminds me that I look different and that my external features are connected to something beyond my Swedish identity. My black hair, dark brown eyes and my brownish skin color talk about something else. READ MORE

  2. 2. Active stabilisation of a micro-sized fibre cavity using tilt locking to enable quantum operations on single ions

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

    Author : Jannek Hansen; [2021]
    Keywords : Quantum computation; optical cavity; microcavity; locking; tilt locking; cavity stabilization; Gaussian-Hermitian modes; quantum computer; higher-order transverse modes; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the tilt locking scheme is applied to create an error signal that monitors length changes in a fibre-based microcavity. To find a robust and precise locking technique is an essential step towards quantum operations on single rare-earth ions doped in microcrystals. Quantum computing and information is a frontier of modern physics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optical characterisation of AAO/CsPbBr3 perovskite nanocomposites

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

    Author : Klára Nováková; [2021]
    Keywords : perovskite; scintillator; optoelectronics; semiconductor; X-ray detection; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Direct bandgap metal lead halide perovskites offer promising optoelectronic properties desirable in a wide range of applications including photodetection. However, the incomplete and poor understanding of the photophysical processes taking place in these materials, along with their poor stability, is the bottleneck for optimisation and further development of metal halide perovskite devices.

  4. 4. Memento Mitten : Re-Collecting Human Hair as a Material

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för design (DE)

    Author : Linnéa Ivarsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Handicraft; Wool; Hair; Design; Art; Nålebinding; Nålbinding; Naalbinding; Hand Carding; Hand Spinning; Mittens; Memento Mori; Death; Mary Douglas; Uncanniness; Dirt; Hair Craft; Hair Crafting;

    Abstract : Memento Mitten is a project about seeing human hair from the perspective of sustainability as a viable alternative material. The project also aims to question our reluctance in Western Europe to use it in projects and innovations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gendered commodification of human body parts : A study of the trade with hair from Indian women

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Lovisa Håkansson; [2020]
    Keywords : Commodification; Gender;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to illustrate how the phenomenon of trade with hair from Indian women, can be regarded as a case of gendered commodification of human body parts. It is illustrated with the assistance of postcolonial scholar Appadurai (1986), Scheper-Hughes (2001) and Sharp (2000) theories on commodification. READ MORE
