  1. Shear force transmission across liposome membranes investigated by 3D flow tracing 

    Sebastian, Bernhard (2018)
    Cells in flowing environments are constantly exposed to mechanical stimuli from which they infer information about their environment and induce targeted responses. Sensing and conversion of mechanical stimuli into biochemical signalling is preceded by the propagation of these stimuli into the cell (mechanotransmission). Giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) are cell-sized liposomes which mimic the mechanical properties of the lipid plasma ...

  2. Mean-Field and Quantum Interactions of Strongly Confined Exciton-Polaritons 

    Fink, Thomas (2018)
    In this dissertation, we report on quantum optics experiments in a cavity quantum electrodynamics setting. In particular, we study the interactions of quantum well exciton-polaritons in hybrid dielectric-semiconductor microcavities. A carbon dioxide laser-based fabrication technique is used to create zerodimensional polariton boxes in a highly flexible fiber cavity setup at cryogenic temperatures. We verify that this approach creates ...

  3. Defining key proteins of the primary carbohydrate metabolism in Arabidopsis thaliana 

    Carrera, Dániel Árpád (2017)
    Photosynthetic assimilation of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is the major carbon fixation mechanism. Thereby the captured light energy is used to produce carbohydrates within the Calvin-Benson cycle. A portion of the synthesized carbohydrates is exported out of the chloroplast into the cytosol, where sucrose can be produced. Sucrose is a non-reducing, neutral disaccharide, which can be transported throughout the plant, providing the ...

  7. Asynchronous Distributed Averaging, Cooperative Tilt Estimation, and Modular Robotic Self-Assembly 

    Kriegleder, Maximilian (2017)
    This dissertation provides an advanced platform for research on distributed estimation and control, and investigates three different topics that pertain to these fields of research: (1) a generic asynchronous distributed averaging algorithm, (2) cooperative tilt and altitude estimation from multiple distance sensors, and (3) modular robotic self-assembly through rendezvous with bearing-only information. This work employs the Distributed ...

  11. Die lagerlose Pumpe für hohe Fluidtemperaturen 

    Wellerdieck, Tobias (2017)
    Bearingless motors consist of a drive system with an integrated magnetic bearing and are used in centrifugal pumps for high purity applications. The machine is constructed without the use of a drive shaft, dynamic seals, and conventional mechanical bearings, since the rotor is levitated in a magnetic field. This allows for a wear-free operation and prevents the contamination of process fluids. Bearingless pumps are employed in wet ...

  12. Beef versus tofu: Consumer perception of food sustainability 

    Lazzarini, Gianna A. (2017)
    Food production and consumption have major impacts on the environment, society, and human health. Consumers could help to mitigate negative effects by adopting more sustainable diets. To this end, they need to accurately choose sustainable food products during purchase. It is often suggested that consumers lack the necessary knowledge to choose sustainable food products, and if they were better informed, sustainable food choices could be ...
