Simulation, Optimization and Control of High-Altitude
Wind Power Generators
ID: 259166
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2017-02-28
A new class of large scale wind power generators shall be investigated via mathematical modelling, computer simulation and multidisciplinary optimization methods. The underlying technical idea is to use fast flying tethered airfoils that fly in altitudes of several hundred me...

Exploring electron vortex beams
[PROJECT] VORTEX - Exploring electron vortex beams
ID: 278510
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
In this project I will exploit new possibilities opened up by the recent succesful demonstration of our ability to create electron vortex beams in a transmission electron microscope. Electron vortex beams carry a helical phase and angular momentum around their propagation axi...

Simple locally compact groups: exploring the boundaries of the linear world
ID: 278469
Start date: 2011-12-01, End date: 2016-11-30
The theory of locally compact groups stretches out between two antipodes: on one hand, connected groups whose structure, according to the solution to Hilbert fifth problem, is governed by Lie theory and is thus relatively rigid, and on the other hand, discrete groups, which a...

Plasmonics-based Energy Harvesting for Catalysis
ID: 280064
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Many critical photochemical and photophysical processes, from photosynthesis in plants, to photocatalytic reactions, and to generation of electricity in solar cells, depend on an efficient light-matter interaction. In order to increase, for example, the efficiency of photocat...

M- and Z-estimation in semiparametric statistics : applications in various fields
ID: 203650
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-06-30
The area of semiparametric statistics is, in comparison to the areas of fully parametric or nonparametric statistics, relatively unexplored and still in full development. Semiparametric models offer a valid alternative for purely parametric ones, that are known to be sensitiv...

Symmetries and Dualities in Gravity and M-theory
ID: 267401
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Despite its considerable success, Einstein theory of gravity is an unfinished revolution: it has limitations both at the microscopic scales and at the macroscopic scales. The objective of this proposal is to provide a better understanding of the gravitational interaction beyo...

Dependable Performance on Many-Thread Processors
ID: 259295
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Contemporary microprocessors seek at improving performance through thread-level parallelism by co-executing multiple threads on a single microprocessor chip. Projections suggest that future processors will feature multiple tens to hundreds of threads, hence called many-thread...

Ultralow power photonic integrated circuits for short range interconnect networks
ID: 259076
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
It is now generally recognized that current electrical solutions will not suffice to fulfil all requirements for communication on-chip and between chips, which is expected to continue to grow exponentially during the coming years. Therefore we have to look for alternatives. O...

Mid-InfraRed Active photonic integrated Circuits for Life
sciences and Environment
ID: 258934
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
My group will explore the new field of photonic integrated circuits for the mid infrared (MIR) wavelength band based on high-index contrast waveguide structures. This research is fueled by the need for compact, integrated solutions for spectroscopic sensor systems in the MIR ...

Hochschild cohomology, non-commutative deformations and mirror symmetry
ID: 257004
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
"Our research programme addresses several interesting current issues in non-commutative algebraic geometry, and important links with symplectic geometry and algebraic topology. Non-commutative algebraic geometry is concerned with the study of algebraic objects in geometric wa...
