Environmental microorganisms: microsystem approaches to separation and analysis
(Doctoral dissertations at the University College of Southeast Norway;16, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Three technologies were tested in this PhD project, all of which have potential for use in micro systems for environmental analyses: The Trilobite® technology for particle separation and purification, the analysis technique ...
Solid liquid interdiffusion wafer-level bonding for MEMS packaging
(Doctoral theses at Buskerud and Vestfold University College;5, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
The trend of micro-electronic-mechanical-systems (MEMS) packaging requires costeffective and high performance packaging techniques. The objective of this study is to develop solid-liquid-interdiffusion (SLID) wafer-level ...
Application-oriented microfluidic LOC devices for the detection of microorganisms, toxic chemicals and serological biomarkers
(Doctoral theses at Buskerud and Vestfold University College;6, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) technology has advanced over the past several decades. As miniaturized multiphase multistep reactors, LOCs are suitable for the implementation of complex liquid phase reactions in the field of biomedical ...
On the old and the new: An ethnographic study of older people’s mental health services in a changing welfare state
(Doctoral thesis, 2017)
The Norwegian welfare state is traditionally known as universalistic. Thus, it might be expected that public healthcare services would cover all citizens on equal terms. Yet older people with mental health problems are not ...
Micro and Nano Technologies for Unmanned Nano Air Vehicles (NAVs)
(Doctoral theses at Buskerud and Vestfold University College;2, Doctoral thesis, 2014)
Nano Air Vehicles (NAVs) consist of remotely controlled miniaturized flying objects with maximum dimensions smaller than 15 cm and less than 20 g in weight. The small size of such systems allows them to penetrate and ...
Local Synthesis and Direct Integration of Carbon Nanotubes into Microsystems for Sensor Applications
(Doctoral theses at Buskerud and Vestfold University College;1, Doctoral thesis, 2014)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been intensively studied since their discovery more than two decades ago. A lot of research has exploited their extraordinary properties and various applications, meanwhile, revealed the ...
Kontinuitet og diskontinuitet i overgangen fra barnehage til skolefritidsordning og skole : En multimetodisk studie av pedagogers og SFO-lederes prioriteringer av tiltak og barns erfaringer med kontinuitet og diskontinuitet
(Doktoravhandlinger ved Høgskolen i Sørøst-Norge; 3, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Ph.d-studien består av to delstudier. Den første delstudien undersøker pedagogiske praksiser som har til hensikt å bidra til at barn opplever gode overganger og sammenheng mellom barnehage, skolefritidsordning (sfo) og ...
Design and microfabrication of new automatic human blood sample collection and preparation devices
(Doctoral thesis, 2015)
For self-sampling or collection of blood by health personal related to point-ofcare diagnostics in health rooms, it may often be necessary to perform automatic collection of blood samples. The most important operation that ...
Osmotic sensor for blood glucose monitoring applications
(Doctoral theses at Vestfold University College;1, Doctoral thesis, 2012)
Synthesis and Applications of Free-standing TiO2 Nanotube Membranes
(Doctoral theses at Vestfold University College;2, Doctoral thesis, 2013)
Nanostructured TiO2 nanotubes (TNTs) have great application potential in optoelectronic devices due to large effective light harvesting surface area and wide band gap. Anodization of Ti is a simple way to prepare well-ordered ...
