Sammanfattning : This PhD thesis presents investigations of perovskite-related compounds in systems of interest for applications in components in solid oxide fuel cells. The compound compositions derive from substitutions in the parent compounds LaCoO3, LaCrO3 and SrFeO3. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Measurement of the concentration of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide(CO 2 ) and methane (CH 4 ), in the atmosphere has received significant attention in the last few decades. This work focusses on the development of high-performance thermopile detectors for use with the non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) measurements of such gases. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The modern, highly industrialized, society of today requires huge amounts of energy to function. This has resulted in a heavy dependence on the very energy efficient fossil fuels, a source of energy which of course is not infinite and we are slowly approaching the day when oil runs out. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : According to different sources, from forty to sixty percent of the overall energy generated in the world today is squandered in waste heat. The existing energy conversion technologies are either close to their efficiency limits or too costly to justify their implementation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : With thermoelectric materials it is possible to convert a difference in temperature into electrical energy. This can be utilized for a more efficient use of available energy, eg. by converting waste heat from a combustion process. LÄS MER
