  1. 1. Heterogeneous catalytic reactions studied with transient gas supply and event-averaged ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/NanoLund: Center for Nanoscience

    Author : Qianhui Liu; [2022]
    Keywords : Ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; Event-averaging; Pd 100 surface structure oscillation; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : CO oxidation over Pd(100) is studied with ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (APXPS). Cyclic gas composition pulsing of the CO:O2 ratio, combined with a new method using software based event-averaging by image recognition over many pulses, is used to improve the signal-to-noise ratio substantially.

  2. 2. Doping Layers in Quantum Cascade Lasers: A study in doping density, position and migration effects

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk fysik

    Author : Josefin Reftlér; [2022]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) consist of several semiconductor materi- als sandwiched together. The QCL achieves stimulated emission in the mid-IR (m-IR) to the THz region of the electromagnetic spectrum by inter-subband transitions. These parts of the electromagnetic spectrum are hard to lase in with conventional means. READ MORE

  3. 3. Just Sustainability Transitions in the Blue Economy: Towards Blue Justice in Small-Scale Artisanal Fisheries in the Pacific of Costa Rica

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Author : Judith Baeta Humanes; [2022]
    Keywords : blue economy; small-scale artisanal fisheries; just transitions; blue justice; Costa Rica; fieldwork; Social Sciences; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : The blue economy emerged as sustainable, inclusive and equitable alternative to traditional oceans economy. However, the current paradigm of oceans as development spaces has led to an acceleration of competing uses of marine resources causing ecosystem deterioration and human rights abuses that disproportionately affect vulnerable small-scale fisheries.

  4. 4. “Walking encyclopedias of studies” for sustainability transformations? The role of information and discourse in the case of the German coal phase-out

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Stockholm Resilience Centre

    Author : Stephan Huber; [2021]
    Keywords : Climate policy; Energy systems; Policy change; Social-ecological transformation; Discourse; Expert-based information; Collaborative governance; Path dependency; Policy-oriented learning;

    Abstract : Transformations of energy systems in line with the Paris Agreement demand rapid deliberate decline of fossil energy production for decarbonization. Rising in priority on national political agendas, policy change for deliberate decline meets political barriers in the form of powerful incumbent actors, path dependencies and frames of loss.

  5. 5. Finding a Safe and Just Space for Water Use in Mexico City: An Evaluation of Mexico City's Water Public Policies with Doughnut Economic Sustainability Transitions Criteria

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Author : Eva Valencia Lenero; [2021]
    Keywords : Sustainable Transitions; Mexico City; Water Use; Doughnut Economics; Impact Evaluation; Policy; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Mexico City’s water system is not sustainable. There is an unfair inequality gap in the quantity and quality of water access for its residents. Moreover, the groundwater aquifers in the city are being over-exploited and polluted. READ MORE
