  1. 1. Pen-rotation scheme for growing pigs : effects on pig aggression and social affiliation

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Moses Agbenyegah Gadri; [2023]
    Keywords : aggressive; affiliative; fighting; littermates; behaviours; reuniting;

    Abstract : This master project aimed to assess if a pen-rotation scheme mitigated the effects of reuniting pigs after temporal separation. Six groups of crossbred (Yorkshire and Hampshire) growing pigs, (8 - 10 littermates per group) aged between 12 – 13 weeks, were video recorded separately in their original home pens for 2 h before a temporal separation to undergo the pen rotation scheme in pairs for 3 days.

  4. 4. Superluminous magnons in Nickel Oxide

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Materialteori

    Author : Jannes van Poppelen; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Recent experiments have shown that the magnon velocity over nanoscale distancesin certain antiferromagnetic materials, with NiO in particular, far exceeds the previous theoretical maximum. Antiferromagnetic insulators are excellent candidatesfor spintronic nanodevices due to their exceptionally low energy dissipation, whichcould benefit the future speed at which information is stored.
