    • Smartphone-based urinary biomarker detection: an application-oriented device and algorithm 

      Karlsen, Haakon (Doctoral dissertations at the University College of Southeast Norway;30, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
      Persons of advanced age have a higher risk of contracting urinary tract infection than the general population. Functional impairments, cognitive impairments, urine incontinence and advanced age encumbers the management of ...
    • Interdigital-Electrode Thin-Film Piezoelectric Microactuators 

      Nguyen, Cuong Hung (Doctoral dissertations at the University College of Southeast Norway;29, Doctoral thesis, 2018-01)
      Along with microsensors, microactuators are the most important components of microelectromechanical systems. Many microactuators use piezoelectric coupling mechanisms because they allow these actuators to generate high ...
    • Heat generation in underwater transducers 

      Wild, Marcus Sebastian (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;38, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      Acoustic transducers are used for a variety of applications, ranging from medical to maritime uses. In the maritime sector, underwater transducers can be used for appli- cations such as seabed mapping, fishing and ...
    • High-Q bulk acoustic wave resonators for RF filter applications 

      Nguyen, Ngoc Thi Bich (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;24, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      This thesis proposes a novel design method for optimizing bulk acoustic wave (BAW) resonators, including film bulk acoustic resonators (FBAR) and solidly mounted res-onators (SMR). The purpose is to enhance their quality ...
    • Optically operated pulse-driven Josephson junction arrays and range extension using voltage dividers and buffer amplifiers 

      Karlsen, Bjørnar (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;52, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      Voltage dividers and buffer amplifier combinations can be used to transfer and extend traceability in voltage and electrical power metrology between a wide range of instruments. For voltages up to 1000 V, resistive voltage ...
    • Flexible electrochemical sensor platform 

      Søpstad, Sindre (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;54, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      Bringing an electroanalytical assay from the laboratory to the level of a commercially or clinically viable product often requires substantial cost, effort and time. While the real value may lie in the assay and sensor ...
    • 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 ...
