  1. 1. Reconstructing force from harmonic motion

    Författare :Daniel Platz; David B. Haviland; John E. Sader; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; oscillator; force spectroscopy; atomic force microscopy; intermodulation; multifrequency; inverse problem; high quality factor;

    Sammanfattning : High-quality factor oscillators are often used in measurements of verysmall force since they exhibit an enhanced sensitivity in the narrow frequencyband around resonance. Forces containing frequencies outside this frequencyband are often not detectable and the total force acting on the oscillatorremains unknown. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Construction of force measuring optical tweezers instrumentation and investigations of biophysical properties of bacterial adhesion organelles

    Författare :Magnus Andersson; Ove Axner; Lene Broeng Oddershede; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; optical tweezers; biological physics; unfolding; Escherichia coli; force measurements; energy landscape; dynamic force spectroscopy; manipulation; polymers; pili; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Optical tweezers are a technique in which microscopic-sized particles, including living cells and bacteria, can be non-intrusively trapped with high accuracy solely using focused light. The technique has therefore become a powerful tool in the field of biophysics. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Influence of waxes on bitumen and asphalt concrete mixture performance

    Författare :Ylva Edwards; Ulf Isacsson; Klaus-Werner Damm; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bitumen; asphalt; additives; wax in bitumen; polyphosphoric acid in bitumen; rheology; IR-spectroscopy; dynamic mechanic analysis DMA ; bending beam rheometer BBR ; literature study; low temperature physical hardening; highway materials; morphology; modified bitumens; temperature susceptibility; low temperature performance; ageing; microscopy; chromatography; Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy; force ductility; conventional binder tests; asphalt performance; tensile strain restrained specimen test TSRST ; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Sammanfattning : This doctoral thesis consists of a literature review, presented in two papers, and another six papers describing experimental studies of the influence of different kinds of wax and polyphosporic acid on bitumen and asphalt concrete mixture properties. The literature review should give an extensive description of the field of knowledge concerning wax in bitumen. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Dynamic interactions of interfacial polymers

    Författare :Mark Plunkett; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :surface chemistry dynamic polymer interactions QCM AFM MASIF surface forces adhesion friction;

    Sammanfattning : The relationship between the amount and conformation of apolymer at the solid-liquid interface, and the resultinginteraction forces between two such surfaces has beeninvestigated. With a degree of control of the polymerconformation, by varying the temperature, solvent quality,polymer charge density etc, it has been possible to measure andinterpret the resulting changes in the surface interactions.

  5. 5. Signal Enhancement by Dynamic Polymers in Quartz Crystal Microbalance Applications

    Författare :Gunnar Dunér; Olof Ramström; Ian Nicholls; Andra Dedinaite; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Signal enhancement; QCM; polyelectrolytes; hydrogel; iniferter; photopolymerization; dynamic polymers; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Sammanfattning :  This licentiate thesis presents studies of signal enhancement by dynamic polymers in quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) applications. The aim of the study has been to determine the potential for the use of polymers on QCM sensors for signal enhancement in molecular interaction studies. LÄS MER
