  1. 1. Neutron Veto Inefficiency Studies with FLUKA for the LDMX Hadronic Calorimeter

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikel- och kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Jaida Raffelsberger; [2023]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Dark matter accounts for about 85% of all matter in the Universe, yet its particle nature remains unknown. The Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX) is a proposed fixed-target missing-momentum experiment that intends to probe the predominantly experimentally uncharted MeV-GeV mass range for "light dark matter".

  2. 2. Buffer modification: A case study with polystyrene beads, DU145-, and MCF7 cell lines

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Olivia Hansson Rengbrandt; [2023]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Separation of cancer cells gives advantages in understanding the disease, guiding treatment decisions, and facilitating drug development. Overall, separation plays an important role in biological research. Acoustophoresis is a technique that utilizes acoustic waves to separate particles and cells suspended in a buffer medium.

  3. 3. Buffer optimisation for an improved cell separation using Acoustophoresis with Polystyrene particles, Jurkat, MCF-7 and DU-145 cell lines

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Lovisa Silversand; [2023]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Akustophores är rörelse av partiklar/celler under inverkan av ljud. Partikel- och cell separation är en applikation som kan utföras av akustophores. Detta är en viktig teknik eftersom den kan avslöja viktig information om sjukdomar och celler och därigenom förbättra valet av behandling inom sjukvården. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring the materiality of ornithopters

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Constantinos Makris; [2023]
    Keywords : ornithopters; drones; soma-design; bio-inspired robots; HCI; HDI; ornithoptrar; drönare; soma-design; bioinspirerade robotar; HCI; HDI;

    Abstract : A plethora of multi-copter drones can be found in a variety of public and private sectors in society; crime detection, border guard, agricultural inspections, aerial photography, cinematography, television, and entertainment. Unlike commercial drones, ornithopters - flapping bird-like drones - have a very different materiality. READ MORE


    University essay from Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för biologi och miljövetenskap

    Author : Monica Olsson; [2022-10-05]
    Keywords : Polystyrene nanoparticles; crude oil; combined toxicity; cytotoxicity; oxidative stress;

    Abstract : The awareness of micro-and nanoplastic pollution and its impact on the marine ecosystem has increased over the last decade. Nanoplastics may affect aquatic organisms since their small size and high surface-to-volume ratio increases their bioavailability and ability to cross biological membranes. READ MORE
