    University essay from KTH/Ljusdesign

    Author : Despoina Myronidi; [2021]
    Keywords : newborns; feeling of presence; infant behaviours; social design; feeling safe; reactive light; pulsing light; sound and light; sensors and controls; programming light;

    Abstract : This is a project-based thesis focusing on the investigation of topics related to human newborns and the factors found in their surrounding environment that need to be assessed so as to provide them with a feeling comfort. The objective is to boost their emotional development by the means of light in a close relation to sound so as to provide them with a type of intelligence allowing them to normally interact within a society during their adult life, reassuring social equality and eliminating potential social exclusion due to unexpected behaviours.

  2. 2. Photoredox catalysis enabled C–O bond activation: Access to unnatural amino acids

    University essay from KTH/Kemi

    Author : Josefin Lantz; [2021]
    Keywords : photoredox catalysis; unnatural amino acids; alkyl oxalate; visible light; radicals; fotoredoxkatalys; icke-naturliga aminosyror; alkyloxalat; synligt ljus; radikaler;

    Abstract : Fotoredoxkatalys tillhandahåller möjligheter att utveckla nya hållbara kemiska reaktionsvägar. När fotokatalysatorn bestrålas med synligt ljus möjliggörs elektronöverföring till eller från substratet som i sin tur medför alstring av reaktiva fria radikaler. READ MORE

  3. 3. Correlating Photoconductivity with Photochromism in Oxygen-containing Rare-earth Metal Hydride Thin Films

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Materialfysik

    Author : Suraya Kazi; [2021]
    Keywords : Rare-earth metal hydride; Thin film synthesis; Thin film characterization; Optical properties; Electrical properties; Chemical composition; Photochromic materials; Photoconductivity;

    Abstract : Scientists have recently discovered simultaneous photoconductivity and photochromism (i.e., optical switching upon light exposure) of oxygen-containing rare-earth metal hydrides (REMHO). A deep understanding of these extraordinary optical and electrical properties can open the door to advanced technological uses such as smart windows. READ MORE

  4. 4. A pre-study for functional coatings evaluated on light metals to be applied on a new HPDC Mg-alloy : Investigating tribological and thermophysical properties, as-cast and coated

    University essay from Jönköping University/JTH, Industriell produktutveckling, produktion och design

    Author : Louise Albo Zieme; Pontus Bergstedt; [2021]
    Keywords : reciprocating dry sliding wear test; thermophysical test; NiP-SiC; Ni-SiC; functional coatings; progressive scratch test; adhesion; magnesium alloy; aluminium alloy; hardness.;

    Abstract : Magnesium with two-thirds of the density compared to aluminium and one-quarter of steel, intrigues product developers and material scientists due to the light metal’s excellent combination of strength to weight ratio as well as their capability of being produced as a High Pressure Die Cast component compared to other ferrous or light metal alloys.   However, a magnesium alloy inherits some concerning drawbacks, limiting the exploitation in structural applications and mechanical design such as automotive, heavy machinery and aerospace components.

  5. 5. Pre-study of optical LED units for shunting signals

    University essay from KTH/Hälsoinformatik och logistik

    Author : Tobias Adolfsson; Axel Dellenby; [2021]
    Keywords : LED - Light Emitting Diode; Booster Converter; MLCC - Multi-layer capacitor; ESR - Equivalent Serie Resistance; OU - Optical Unit; Reactive compensation; LED - lysdiod; step-up omvandlare; MLCC - flerskiktskeramisk kondensator; ESR - ekvivalent serie motstånd; OU - optiskt enhet; reaktiv kompensering;

    Abstract : Alstom wanted to investigate the possibility of adapting its light emitting diode (LED) technology for shunting signals in train traffic. The LED technology uses 50V, but Alstom wants to adapt it for 12V. The LED technology is energy efficient but needs to be adapted for existing signal interlocking by drawing a higher current.
