    Project Endospores of pathogenic and spoilage bacteria are an important concern in food microbiology both because of their intrinsic heat resistance, which makes them resistant to common food pasteurization processes and for some sporeformers even to UHT processes, and the fact that contemporary food conservation is increasingly inclined towards mild processing and refrigeration which causes a...

    Project The exact lattice sites occupied by impurities in a semiconductor host drastically determine their properties, which can be either beneficial (as an electrical,optical, magnetic... dopant) or detrimental. By studying the anisotropic emission of charged particles, following the radioactive decay of implanted impurities,it is possible to determine the position of the impurity with a very...

    Project There is currently a strong interest in processes that can lead to a largely parallel production of nanoscale features on a surface. Small features can be created using 'top-down' lithographic methods like electron beam lithography and focused ion beam writing, but these are serial, and hence, slow and expensive production techniques. The interest is therefore focused on...

    Project The objective is to create precipitates embedded within a substrate as the interaction of the nanoclusters with the surroundings can lead to additional functionality versus clusters which are solely deposited on a surface. An attractive approach for this purpose is to rely on high-fluence implantation of energetic ions followed by thermal treatment, such that clusters will...

    Project During the past two decades there has been intense activity in the field of magnetic thin films and multilayers. On the one hand this was stimulated by progress in thin film deposition and characterization methods and on the other hand the whole research field received an enormous stimulus from the discovery of giant magnetoresistance, antiparallel magnetic coupling in...

    Project The archdiocese of Cambrai always functioned as a zone for transregional mobility. Ever since its erection as the borderland archdiocese of the Habsburg Low Countries in 1559 until its partial incorporation in the French Kingdom in 1659, it hosted Catholic refugees from different regions, such as the British Isles, Ireland, France and eventually the Dutch Republic. This created an...

    Project Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an orphan lung disease characterised by excessive matrix deposition and destruction of the lung architecture leading to respiratory insufficiency. This relentless disease has a five-year survival rate of only 20%. One of the main reasons is the lack of understanding of the pathogenesis of the fibrotic process. (1,2). In the United Kingdom it is...

    Project The research will be conducted in the frame of the GOA project entitled: "Fundamental Study of a Greenhouse Gas Emission-free Energy System". The aim of the research is to establish an object-oriented generic approach to describe the energy demand (heat, cold and electricity) of the built environment (different building functions), ranging from local neighborhoods to the European...

    Project This research project focuses on the two main activities: one is the optimization of the scanning process, and more in particular the registration of different scans and the other is the conversion of the resulting point cloud into a useable CAD/BIM model. The optimization of the scanning process involves the development of a(semi-)mobile indoor scanning system in which the...

    Project This project aims at studying the role of local governments (cities and municipalities) in controlling transport externalities (congestion, pollution, noise, accident risks). We study the behavior of local governments when making such transport policy decisions, we analyze how efficient the outcomes are, and we investigate the interaction between local and federal (or, in Belgium,...
