2. In Search of the Holy Grail of Photoelectrochemistry : A Study of Thin Film Electrodes for Solar Hydrogen Generation
Sammanfattning : Hydrogen is a wanted energy carrier in a future society less dependent of fossil fuels. This thesis investigates the possibilities of using solar energy to convert water into hydrogen and oxygen, so called artificial photosynthesis. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Reuse of software assets has been, and continues to be the holy grail of software engineering. In this thesis we argue that a prerequisite for reusability is variability. In order to reuse a piece of software, it needs to be adapted to the environment in which it will be reused. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The background of this thesis is the development of global, ‘virtual’, collaboration teams in the engineering domain. Distributed concurrent engineering is probably the ‘holy grail’ of current research into collaborative engineering. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Stretching back at least a thousand years, Arthurian literature constitutes a vigorous and varied genre that attracts scholarly attention.
