  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Ungdomars erfarenheter av emotionell utsatthet under uppväxten

    Författare :Carin Benjaminson; Jane Brodin; Peg Lindstrand; Anders Möller; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Growing up; lifenarrative; emotional abuse and neglect; insecurity; vital force; Children; Barn; Child and Youth Science; barn- och ungdomsvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this study is to describe and analyze the lifeworlds of youths subjected to emotional abuse during their childhoods. The following questions have been formulated: What experiences of emotional abuse do youths recount, and what do these experiences involve for the child? What picture of their encounter with the surrounding society do these youths provide, such as, for example, meetings with those close to them and with people at school, and what do these meetings involve for the child? What feelings have characterized their childhoods, and what consequences do these feelings have for the children’s lives and their transitions to adulthood? This study employs a qualitative lifeworld approach. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Bodies of vital matter: Notions of life force and transcendence in traditional southern Italy

    Författare :Per Binde; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; socialanropologi; Italien; magi; övertro; social anthropology; Italy; symbolism; cosmology; Roman Catholicism; social organization; vitality; folk medicine; burial practices; death; cult of saints; the evil eye; witches;

    Sammanfattning : Bodies of Vital Matter presents an innovative study that explores folk beliefs relating to the vital force of the human body and to the transcendence of the corporal. The time frame is the period from the unification of Italy to the Second World War. There are three principal themes of investigation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Structural, Kinetic and Thermodynamic Aspects of the Crystal Polymorphism of Substituted Monocyclic Aromatic Compounds

    Författare :Michael Svärd; Åke Rasmuson; Hugo Meekes; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Polymorphism; crystallization; thermodynamics; kinetics; nucleation; crystallography; solubility; phase equilibria; polymorphic transformation; solution history; metastable zone; classical theory of nucleation; two-step theory of nucleation; cluster; crystal structure prediction; lattice energy; molecular mechanics; force field; electrostatic potential; potential energy hypersurface; m-aminobenzoic acid; m-hydroxybenzoic acid; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : This work concerns the interrelationship between thermodynamic, kinetic and structural aspects of crystal polymorphism. It is both experimental and theoretical, and limited with respect to compounds to substituted monocyclic aromatics. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Thermally Induced Fracture Performance of Asphalt Mixtures

    Författare :Prabir Kumar Das; Björn Birgisson; Dallas Little; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Low temperature cracking; asphalt concrete fracture mechanics; viscoelasticity; non-linear thermal contraction coefficient; atomic force microscopy; wax; wax crystallization; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Sammanfattning : A major distress mode in asphalt pavements is low temperature cracking, which results from the contraction and expansion of the asphalt pavement under extreme temperature changes. The potential for low temperature cracking is an interplay between the environment, the road structure and importantly the properties of the asphalt mixture. LÄS MER
