    The concept of self-performing products can be traced back to the world’s earliest civilizations and has long been a staple of science fiction. Fiction has now become reality as we experience the rise of autonomous products ...
  • Simulation and microfabrication of MEMS vacuum electronic devices for terahertz technology 

    Billa, Laxma Reddy (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;49, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
    Numerous applications explore the scarcely used terahertz (THz) band in the electromagnetic spectrum. However, widespread utilization of the THz band is technically challenging, due to the lack of power sources. The power ...
  • Die-attach for high-temperature electronics 

    Larsson, Andreas (Doctoral thesis, 2019)
    Applications in harsh environments push the boundaries for electronic systems. High temperatures put great stress on electronic components. The die-attach is an enabling component that makes the system work. It needs to ...
  • Nursing Intensity in Home Health Care
