  1. Linear and Nonlinear Optics with Metal Oxides: From Single Nanoparticles to Metasurfaces 

    Timpu, Flavia Claudia (2019)
    Nonlinear optics has become an important part of our technology related daily life since its rapid development right after the invention of laser in 1960. Indeed, it enabled the creation of high-intensity laser pulses, which are used in applications ranging from industrial manufacturing to microsurgery. The development of nonlinear materials allowed the production of very compact and affordable pocket laser pointers and enhanced the power ...

  2. Multiscale Effects of Photochemical Shrinkage in Direct Laser Writing 

    Bauhofer, Anton (2019)
    Material shrinkage commonly occurs in additive manufacturing during the phase transition of the printed material from liquid to solid. A sequential phase change, as present in three-dimensional (3D) printing, can cause incompatible residual strains in the material that lead to deformations and residual stresses in fabricated parts. These, usually undesired, effects are present in most 3D printing processes and can cause significant ...

  9. Structural Folding for Architectural Design 

    D'Acunto, Pierluigi (2018)
    From an architectural standpoint, folding as a design operation enables the creation of forms that can deal with different requirements in terms of both space and programme. Moreover, from an engineering perspective, folding is an effective strategy to generate efficient structures that withstand the applied loads through their form. Although these two aspects have been explored extensively as independent research questions, so far, only ...

  11. Cherenkov-Plenoscope 

    Mueller, Sebastian Achim (2019)
    Telescopes – ’far seeing’ – have since centuries revealed insights to objects at cosmic distances. Adopted for gamma-ray-astronomy, ground based Cherenkov- telescopes image the faint Cherenkov-light of air-showers induced by cosmic gamma- rays rushing into earth’s atmosphere. In the race for the lowest possible energy- threshold for cosmic gamma-rays, these Cherenkov-telescopes have become big- ger, and now reached their physical ...

  13. Electrodynamic Energy Harvesting from Moving Conductive Surfaces 

    Flankl, Michael (2018)
    Typically, the wagons of a freight train do not have an electric train supply (ETS), which is in contrast to passenger coaches, where such a supply is used for coach lighting and heating. An emerging application, which, however, requires an electric power supply, is condition monitoring of freight wagons, e.g. an anti-lock braking system, or of the transported goods. It has the potential of saving costs and giving additional benefit to ...

  14. Reducing Pesticide Use Risks: An Economic Analysis 

    Möhring, Niklas (2019)
    The reduction of environmental and health risks is on top of the agricultural policy agenda worldwide. The design of effective and efficient policies though is complex. Pesticides are very heterogenous with regards to their properties and usages, pesticide application behaviour of farmers is driven by different deterministic and stochastic determinants, such as environmental conditions, weather and risk preferences and perceptions of ...
