  1. 1. Semiconducting TiO2 for High Performance Ferroelectric Tunnel Junctions

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Erik Wikare; [2022]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The ferroelectric tunnel junction FTJ is a rather old concept but has recently been in the spotlight for its promising properties in computer memory technology and neuromorphic computing. The device consists of a ferroelectric insulator sandwiched between two electrodes, and by polarisation switching the resistance along the heterostructure can drastically be adjusted. READ MORE

  2. 2. The impact of noice pollution and vibrations on nearby buildings : How is the school Kulturama affected by noise and vibrations from the 'nya tunnelbana' project?

    University essay from KTH/Byggteknik och design

    Author : Hadil Jawad; Aren Nabatyan; [2021]
    Keywords : Noice pollution; vibrations; metro; nya tunnelbana project; noice absorbents; Buller; vibrationer; stomljud; luftburet ljud; nya tunnelbana projekt; absorbenter;

    Abstract : To meet the needs of the growing city of Stockholm, a large-scale project to expand the subway has been initiated. The tunneling involved in the project causes several disturbances, in terms of vibration and noise pollution, on the surroundings. This is problematic as vibration and noise pollution has been shown to have a negative health impact. READ MORE

  3. 3. Primordial Gravitational Waves and ultra-light Dark Matter in a complex singlet extended Standard Model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik

    Author : Sara Wildenor; [2021]
    Keywords : theoretical physics; gravitational waves; dark matter; complex singlet extended standard model; LISA; BBO; DECIGO; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the consequences of extending the internal symmetries of the standard model with a complex singlet scalar field, are investigated in terms of dark matter phenomenology and the possibility of primordial gravitational wave detection utilizing space based laser interferometry. The scalar potential of the model is constructed with a Z2 symmetry, which allows for the retainment of a linear and a quadratic coupling parameter, as well as a stable dark matter candidate, and an additional non-zero vacuum expectation value for the real component of the scalar field.

  4. 4. Comparing Three Numerical Methods For Solving The 1D Time Dependent Schrödinger Equation

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Atabak Fathe Jalali; Hugo Åkesson; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to implement three numerical methods for solving and examining the time-dependent Schrödinger equation (TDSE) of the analytically solved quantum harmonic oscillator (QHO) and the, to our knowledge, analytically unsolved double well potential (DW), and to compare the numerical solutions. These methods are the Crank-Nicolson method and two split operator methods of different orders. READ MORE

  5. 5. Erosion Behaviour of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Konstruktionsmaterial

    Author : Caroline Wännman; [2021]
    Keywords : erosion; TBC; APS; EB-PVD; PS-PVD; failure mechanisms;

    Abstract : Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are advanced material systems used in the hot sections of gas turbines. The TBCs are designed to provide insulation against hot gases by a ceramic top coat and to provide oxidation and corrosion resistance by a metallic bond coat. READ MORE
