The precise thickness of ultra-thin films of light-emitting plastics is important for their brightness. By layering two plastic films on top of each other, and writing in one of the films with a sharp stylus, light-emitting patterns like for example a signature can be created. Mattias Lindh, who has studied the operation of light-emitting electrochemical cells, writes this in his PhD thesis.
Robust and Model Predictive Control for Boundary Control Systems
Researchers have examined which agroforestry residues are available for the development of bio-based materials.
Scientists have introduced an ultra-precise sensing approach for the measurement of acoustic and ultrasonic waves.
New study shows connections between global environmental degradation and tax havens published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. On average 68% of all investigated foreign capital to sectors associated with deforestation of the Amazon rainforest was transferred through tax havens. 70% of the known fishing vessels involved in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing are, or have been, registered in tax havens. Loss of tax revenue caused by tax havens should be considered as indirect subsidies to economic activities with detrimental environmental consequences.
The ability to grow large protein crystals is the single biggest bottleneck that limits fuller exploitation of this important approach in structural biology. It was for this reason that macromolecular crystallogenesis has its own work package in SINE2020.
This research project aims to develop a specific IT tool contributing to the implementation of a strategic approach to assess and minimize the probable environmental and health risks arising from the potential use of carbon-based nanomaterials (CBNs) in many applications ranging from engineering to medicine and biology whilst maintaining the highest quality of the composite product coupled with the notion of designing environmentally friendly products.
Software that controls neutron instruments and analyse the data have evolved into its own isolated ecosystem. The problem is that when outsiders try to use it, they are not familiar with it and making use of their beam time can become problematic and time-consuming. What is the solution, and of course the challenges of achieving it?
Growing large crystals (>0.1mm3) of biological macromolecules that are suitable for neutron crystallography is not an easy task. The solution to this problem holds the key to overcoming the single biggest difficulty that limits the technique, and would have a major impact on the range of biological problems that could be addressed using neutron protein crystallography. What if there was a way to arrange many microcrystals so that they behave as if they were a large crystal?
Study shows people who undergo colectomy have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
