  1. Quantum Machine Learning with Superconducting Qubits 

    Herrmann, Johannes (2022)
    Recent years have seen immense progress in the field of artificial neural networks and quantum computing. The far reaching potential of both technologies has fueled the interest for developing quantum machine learning techniques which can leverage on both, the exponential speedup of quantum computers for certain tasks, and the expressivity of neural networks to process large amounts of data. While some work in this novel field focuses on ...

  2. Forlorn Folklore: Discovering and debating the vernacular architecture of Greece, from the Ottoman era to the Greek nation-state (ca. 1750-1920) 

    Magouliotis, Nikolaos (2022)
    The topic of this dissertation is the historiography of the vernacular architecture of Greece in the 18th and 19th centuries, i.e. from the Ottoman era to the first decades of the Greek nation-state. Its main aim is to challenge two historiographic assumptions: (a) that Greek vernacular architecture was “discovered” and appreciated only in the early-20th century, and (b) that until then, and throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, discourses ...

  3. Implementing Lean Production: A Behavioral Perspective 

    Januszek, Sven (2022)
    Over the last decades, manufacturing companies have been exposed to increasing global competition and, consequently, the ongoing pressure to continuously improve their processes and lower their costs. Against this backdrop, the popularization of lean production since 1990 including the promise to reduce waste and significantly improve firm performance seemed to come along just in time, especially for the Western world. Soon, the lean ...

  5. Isolation and Characterization of Broadly Neutralizing Antibodies to Coronaviruses 

    Jerak, Josipa (2022)
    The recent outbreak of the severe acute respiratory syndrome virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the causative agent of an ongoing global pandemic, has led to an unprecedented effort in vaccine and therapeutics development. The persistent emergence of SARS-CoV-2 escape variants capable of evading immune responses and therapeutic monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) highlights the need to identify conserved, immunogenic epitopes that can provide broad protection ...

  8. Implementation of Lean Practices in Service Firms: A Case-Based Investigation 

    Fenner, Sophie, V (2022)
    An increase in global competition and cost pressure has incentivised service companies to invest in efficiency improvement initiatives. Considering the success of lean management in manufacturing firms, service firms have been inspired to implement lean. However, despite early applications in the 1990s, service industries has been slow in adopting lean. Among other things, lean practitioners struggle with the heterogeneous context of ...

  9. Architectured Inorganic Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage 

    Bargardi, Fabio (2022)
    Architectured materials offer a strategy to overcome current limitations present in homogeneous and isotropic materials. Through the modification of the spatial distribution of matter beyond the nano- and micro-scale, materials with designed architectures have been manufactured to enhance the performance of distinct energy-related functional devices. In these architectures, the combination of two materials can lead to a synergistic effect, ...

  10. Perovskites in NMR: From Bulk to Colloids 

    Aebli, Marcel (2022)
    Lead halide perovskites (LHP) with a composition of APbX₃, where A is cesium, methylammonium (MA), or formamidinium (FA) and X is chloride, bromide, or iodide, have gained immense scientific interest, based on their outstanding optoelectronic properties. These properties can easily be tuned by changing the composition or the connection of the present lead-halide octahedra, covering the complete spectrum of fully connected three-dimensional ...

  11. Regulating and Managing Open Innovation 

    Sinha, Swagatam (2022)
    This doctoral dissertation focuses on studying the law & economics of open and collaborative innovation, which represents a burgeoning sector within the wider innovation ecosystem. I study collaborative open innovation by using open source software on GitHub as the locus of my empirical analysis. Developers of open source software represent a vibrant and rapidly growing community of volunteer workers, whose unpaid work has helped vast ...

  12. Simulation of Tropical Marine Clouds in Kilometer-Resolution Atmospheric Models 

    Heim, Christoph Edgar (2022)
    Clouds play an essential role in the climate system by modulating the radiative balance of the atmosphere. They can cool the climate by reflecting incoming solar radiation, or they can warm the climate by trapping thermal radiation emitted to space. As the climate warms in response to anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, clouds are expected to change in terms of their composition, structure, and spatial distribution. Clouds therefore ...

  13. Spawning Semiclassical Wavepackets and Quantum Dynamics with Magnetic Fields 

    Rietmann, Oliver (2022)
    This is a cumulative dissertation consisting of three independent contributions and each one of them has its dedicated chapter. The common topic are numerical methods for the time-dependent Schrödinger equation. Chapter 1 is published in [1] and generalizes the well known Fourier grid method to the case where a magnetic field is present. The new magnetic field terms are closely related to rotations. This observation is not only the key ...
