Two-dimensional materials have a lot of applications in the electronic and photonic device design field, especially when they need to be flexible and transparent. In particular, high frequency applications, above 100MHz, ...

Modelling emergent rhythmic activity in the cerebal cortex 

Dornelles, Leonardo dalla Porta (Date of defense: 2022-10-07)

The brain, a natural adaptive system, can generate a rich dynamic repertoire of spontaneous activity even in the absence of stimulation. The spatiotemporal pattern of this spontaneous activity is determined by the brain ...

Evaluation of TH multi-scale coupling methods in BEPU analysis 

Casamor Vidal, Max (Date of defense: 2022-10-11)

The combined use of thermal-hydraulics system with sub-channel codes (TH-TH coupling) in transient analysis provides an integrated tool with the capability of modelling in detail both the core thermal-hydraulic conditions ...

Sentinel-1 data exploitation for terrain deformation monitoring 

Krishnakumar, Vrinda (Date of defense: 2022-09-29)

Persistent Scatterer interferometry (PSI) is a group of advanced differential interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) techniques used to measure and monitor terrain deformation. Sentinel-1 has improved the data ...

Barocaloric effects at first-order phase transitions 

Aznar Luque, Araceli (Date of defense: 2021-04-15)

Current refrigeration devices, based on vapour-compression cycles, employ refrigerants such as HFCs, which exhibit a global warming potential a thousand times higher than the one produced by CO2,. Furthermore, the increasing ...

Optimization on industrial problems focussing on multi-player strategies 

Coma Company, Martí (Date of defense: 2022-07-26)

Algorithms (EA) are useful optimization methods for exploration of the search space, but they usually have slowness problems to exploit and converge to the minimum with accuracy. On the other hand, gradient based methods ...

Network-based ionospheric gradient monitoring to support ground based augmentation systems 

Caamaño Albuerne, María (Date of defense: 2022-07-12)
