  1. 1. Development of Next-Generation Optical Tweezers : The New Swiss Army Knife of Biophysical and Biomechanical Research

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Daniel Nilsson; [2020]
    Keywords : optical tweezers; optical fiber tweezers; optical fiber; optical trapping; manipulation; optical force; cell trapping; biophysical; physicochemical; biomechanical; research; next-generation; raman spectroscopy; holographic optical tweezers;

    Abstract : In a time when microorganisms are controlling the world, research in biology is more relevant than ever and this requires some powerful instruments. Optical tweezers use a focused laser beam to manipulate and probe objects on the nano- and microscale. READ MORE

  2. 2. Machine Learning Enabled Nonlinear Phase Noise Mitigation for Coherent Optical Systems

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Sergio Steven Gutierrez; [2020]
    Keywords : QAM; NLIN; NLPN; Machine Learning; Coherent Optical Communication; Nonlinear Noise Compensation; Physics and Astronomy; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the current development of coherent optical communication systems, nonlinear noise is considered to be the ultimate bottleneck when extending the transmission length. In this report we suggest a nonparamter digital signal processing scheme to extend the transmission length of a fiber link. READ MORE

  3. 3. Distributed Temperature Sensing Using Phase-Sensitive Optical Time Domain Reflectometry

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad fysik

    Author : Simon Ek; [2020]
    Keywords : Applied physics; Distributed optical fiber sensing; Rayleigh scattering; OTDR; phase-OTDR; Temperature; Refractive index; Strain; Correlation; RISE; Single mode fiber; SMF; Tillämpad fysik; Distribuerad optisk fibermätning; Rayleigh-spridning; OTDR; phase-OTDR; Temperatur; Brytningsindex; Töjning; RISE; Korrelation; Singelmodfiber; SMF;

    Abstract : This thesis explores and evaluates the temperature measuring capabilities of a phase-sensitive optical time-domain reflectometer (φ-OTDR), which exploits Rayleigh backscattering in normal single mode optical fibers. The device is constructed and its setup explained, and a protocol for making temperature measurements with it is developed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Abaca in the Philippines, an overview of a potential important resource for the country : Relating the tensile strength of the single fiber to the microfibrilar angle

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

    Author : Victor Waller; Astrid Wilsby; [2019]
    Keywords : Abaca; fiber; renewable materials; Manila hemp; Industrial crops; Tensile strength;

    Abstract : Due to environmental concerns and to the limited amount of fossil fuel in the world theinterest in using renewable material has been and will continue to be on the rise. With theincreasing demand for renewable materials such as bio-based fibers, the research aroundnatural fibers is intensifying. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Influences on the Optical Properties of Paperboard Due to Dye Additives

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

    Author : Tanya Wallmon; [2019]
    Keywords : White water; buildup; polymer; dye; CIELAB;

    Abstract : In the paper industry the appearance and optical performance of coated and uncoated paperboard is important, therefore colour dyes are widely used to enhance the paperboard. In order to enhance the appearance of paper products, the dyes are added directly into the pulp and/or in the coating. READ MORE
