  1. 1. Diffuse correlation spectroscopy for estimation of coagulation thickness : a phantom study

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Zeyneb Alsadi; [2019]
    Keywords : DCS; Diffuse correlation spectroscopy; Biomedical optics; coagulation; phantom study; coagulation depth; coagulation thickness; diffusion; model; two layer model;

    Abstract : The objective of this preliminary study was to determine the potential of diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS) for assessment of coagulation depth. Coagulation of tissue can occur due to a number of different reasons such as thermal or electrical burns or radiofrequency ablation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Endeavors toward Novel Cochlear Implants from Stretchable Printed Circuit Board Technology

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Mikrosystemteknik

    Author : Rickard Viik; [2019]
    Keywords : novel; cochlear; implant; electrode array; electrode; stretchable; soft; electronics; pdms; polydimethylsiloxane; liquid; alloy; galinstan; hearing aid;

    Abstract : Profound sensorineural hearing loss is at the present time a major worldwide health concern, affecting over 5% of the worlds' population. Through cochlear implants (CI), treatment of sensorineural hearing loss now offers the possibility to restore hearing function through electrical stimulation of auditory nerves. READ MORE

  3. 3. Silicone-based Carbon Black Composite for Epidermal Electrodes

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Mikrosystemteknik; Uppsala universitet/Mikrosystemteknik

    Author : Melika Eklund; Nellie Kjäll; [2019]
    Keywords : cPDMS; cAgPDMS; epidermal electrodes; silicon based composite; carbon black poltdimethylsiloxane;

    Abstract : A method of synthesizing silicone-based composite consisting of carbon black (CB) as a conductive ller in Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) was developed. The aim was to nd a cost eective and easier method to fabricate stretchable, epidermal and conductive electrodes in striving for inexpensive real-time health monitoring. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nanomechanical properties of nanocomposite polymer layer

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Tomasz Tokarski; [2019]
    Keywords : Nanocomposite; nanowear; nano mechanical properties; gel trapping; atomic force microscopy;

    Abstract : Interphase phenomenon gains more and more interest throughout the research community. An interphase is formed between a filler particle and a polymeric matrix, and it may constitute almost the entire volume of a nanocomposite. If the interphase have favorable mechanical properties it will thus result in a nanocomposite with such properties. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mapping of Chromosome Dynamics over the Bacterial Cell Cycle

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för cell- och molekylärbiologi

    Author : Konrad Gras; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The replication of DNA, its compaction and segregation in dividingcells are challenges which all organisms are faced with. Ensuringthat these processes occur without error is essential for thesurvival of the organism. READ MORE
