  1. Three-Dimensional Computer-Assisted Methods for the Automation and Optimization of Preoperative Planning of Forearm Orthopaedic Surgeries 

    Carrillo, Fabio (2019)
    The outcome of complex orthopaedic surgeries highly depends on three main factors: the accurate assessment of the pathological condition, the careful preoperative planning of the surgical steps, and the subsequent implementation of the preoperative planning by corresponding intraoperative guidance. The restoration of the pretraumatic anatomy is one of the ultimate goals in reconstructive surgery of (posttraumatic) bone deformities. The ...

  2. Sorption-Induced Deformation of Nanoporous Materials 

    Chen, Mingyang (2019)
    Sorption-induced deformation is ubiquitous in nanoporous media, but underlying mechanisms are not yet fully understood, and a reliable modeling of this phenomenon is absent. Moreover hysteresis in sorption and swelling isotherms is observed but its origin not yet fully understood and not modeled. In this thesis the sorption-induced deformation of nanoporous media is studied systematically with different approaches. Three different nanoporous ...

  3. Contribution à l'optimisation de la planification des tournées de soins pour l'hospitalisation à domicile 

    Decerle, Jérémy (2018)
    Cette thèse porte sur la planification des tournées de soins pour l’hospitalisation à domicile. Sous l’impulsion des différentes politiques publiques de santé mises en place en France, la demande des patients de recevoir leur traitement dans un environnement familier et sécurisant n’a cessé de croı̂tre. Faisant apparaı̂tre de nouvelles problématiques d’organisation au sein des établissements d’hospitalisation à domicile, notre travail ...

  7. On Photoinduced Transformations in Plasmonic Hot Spots 

    Szczerbiński, Jacek (2019)
    Plasmonic nanostructures can concentrate incident light in nanometer-sized volumes, called hot spots. The highly localized surface plasmon resonance can trigger unusual processes involving molecules adsorbed in such a hot spot. These include enhanced optical responses, photocatalytic reactions and thermal desorption. In this thesis, these phenomena are investigated at the level of a single plasmonic hot spot, using tip-enhanced Raman ...

  8. Phosphorus availability and its interaction with plant belowground carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus input into a Ferralsol 

    Stevenel, Pierre (2019)
    Tropical grasslands cover 44% of the worldwide grassland area and are mainly grown on Ferralsols and Acrisols. These highly weathered soils usually contain a low concentration of plant available phosphorus (P), due to the strong P sorption onto the soil solid phase and/or the small total P content, which often limits plant growth. More than half grass-alone pastures in South America are degraded due to over-grazing and low plant available ...

  10. Efficient Visual Localization for Ground Vehicles in Outdoor Environments 

    Bürki, Mathias (2019)
    Visual (self)localization enables Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) to assess their position and orientation within an environment with up to centimeter level accuracy, using only cost-effective camera sensors. Especially for high precision maneuvering in GNSS-denied environments, using cameras for localization may be the best suited option for budget- or weight constrained platforms. However, particularly in outdoor environments, ...
