      The effect of poly(2-ethyl-butyl cyanoacrylate) nanoparticles containing the cytotoxic drug cabazitaxel was studied in three breast cancer cell lines and one basal-like patient-derived xenograft model grown in the mammary ...
    • Calculation of Terminal Currents in Single Photon Excited Avalanche Photodiodes. 

      Vestby, Aksel Jan Verne (Master thesis, 2012)
      We use the Shockley-Ramo (SR) theorem to calculate terminal currents in single photon excited APDs. A unified notation for the SR theorem is introduced, and we derive the theorem in those particular ways found useful for ...

      Goldar, Dara (Master thesis, 2017)

    • Can a meteor measure vertical winds? 

      Svennevik, Stein Magnus (Master thesis, 2014)
      In the first part of this thesis the zonal and meridional tilt of the SKiYMET Meteor Radar at Dragvoll (63.4 N 10.5 E) has been found using two different methods. The average zenith angle model found the zonal tilt to be ...
    • Can Local Stress Enhancement Induce Stability in Fracture Processes? Part I: Apparent Stability 

      Kjellstadli, Jonas Tøgersen; Bering, Eivind; Hendrick, Martin; Pradhan, Srutarshi; Hansen, Alex (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      By comparing the evolution of the local and equal load sharing fiber bundle models, we point out the paradoxical result that stresses seem to make the local load sharing model stable when the equal load sharing model is ...
    • Can Local Stress Enhancement Induce Stability in Fracture Processes? Part II: The Shielding Effect 

      Kjellstadli, Jonas Tøgersen; Bering, Eivind; Pradhan, Srutarshi; Hansen, Alex (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      We use the local load sharing fiber bundle model to demonstrate a shielding effect where strong fibers protect weaker ones. This effect exists due to the local stress enhancement around broken fibers in the local load ...
    • Carbon Dioxide Intercalation in Sodium Fluorohectorite Clay 

      Rolseth, Erlend Granbo (Master thesis, 2011)
      Wide angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS) measurements of the layered synthetic silicatesodium fluorohectorite (NaFh) when exposed to pressurized carbon dioxideare reported. With a custom made sample holder placed on top of a ...
    • Carbonation of silica cement at high-temperature well conditions 

      Bjørge, Ruben; Gawel, Kamila; Chavez Panduro, Elvia Anabela; Torsæter, Malin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Cements for well environments with temperatures above 110 °C are typically designed with silica additions. This is the case for many of the wells in the North Sea, which is a region promising for large-scale geological ...
    • Carrier Scattering Rates in Zincblende Structure Semiconductors derived from 14 × 14 k · p and ab initio Pseudopotential Methods 

      Karlsen, Bjørnar (Master thesis, 2013)
      A set of programs for calculating carrier-phonon and carrier-alloy scat-tering rates have been constructed. Energy bands, gradients of the energy, second derivatives of the energy and eigenvectors of the carrier states ...
    • Case study of a mesospheric wall event over Ferraz station, Antarctica (62 degrees S) 

      Bageston, JV; Wrasse, CM; Hibbins, Robert; Batista, PP; Gobbi, D; Takahashi, H; Fritts, DC; Andrioli, VF; Fechine, J; Denardini, CM (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      On 16–17 July 2007 during an observational campaign at Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Station (62° S, 58° W), a mesospheric wall was observed with an airglow all-sky imager. The wave appeared like an extensive dark region in ...
    • Casimir effect in Randall-Sundrummodels 

      Rypestøl, Marianne (Master thesis, 2009)
    • Casimir force and its relation to surface tension 

      Høye, Johan Skule; Brevik, Iver Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      From energy considerations there is reason to expect that the work done by Casimir forces during a slow displacement of the parallel plates reflects the free energy of the surface tension of the adjacent surfaces. We show ...
    • Casimir force between a half-space and a plate of finite thickness 

      Høye, Johan Skule; Brevik, Iver Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Zero-frequency Casimir theory is analyzed from different viewpoints, with the aim of obtaining further insight into the delicate Drude-plasma issue that turns up when one considers thermal corrections to the Casimir force. ...
