Evaluation of Osteoarthritis Progression in a Patient-Specific Manner using Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Computational Modeling
ID: 281180
Start date: 2012-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
Background Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most prevalent disorders of the musculoskeletal system. In OA, articular cartilage degenerates and its structure and mechanical properties change, but monitoring or predicting the progression of OA has not been possible. Magnetic r...

Fitting The World to Minds: Brain Basis of Sharing and Transmitting Representations of the Social World
ID: 313000
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Understanding other peoples’ minds is one of the most fundamental human skills but also the most demanding challenge our brains pose every day: To understand each other, we need to share neural representations of the external world across brains. Studying how social informati...

Single-Photon Microwave Devices: era of quantum optics outside cavities
ID: 278117
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
The past couple of years have witnessed the rise of on-chip quantum optics. This has been enabled by the fabrication of high-finesse superconducting resonators made out of coplanar waveguides, and by the coupling of these resonators to superconducting quantum bits, qubits. Th...

Mesoscopic heattronics: thermal and nonequilibrium effects and fluctuations in nanoelectronics
ID: 240362
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Few systems in nature are entirely in equilibrium. Out of equilibrium, there are heat currents, and different degrees of freedom or parts of studied systems may be described by entirely different temperatures if the concept of temperature is at all well defined. In this proje...

Riddle of light induced degradation in silicon photovoltaics
ID: 307315
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
The sun provides enough energy in one minute to supply the world's energy needs for one year. The grand challenge is to turn this enormous energy potential into electricity in a cost-efficient way. So far, silicon has been most successful at this – but we are still very far a...

Quantifying Energy Circulation in Space Plasma
ID: 200141
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
The project aims to quantify energy circulation in space plasmas. Scientifically, energy transfer is a fundamental plasma physical problem having many applications in a variety of plasma environments ranging from coronal heating on the Sun to electric heating in the ionospher...

Subjectivity and Selfhood in the Arabic and Latin Traditions
ID: 203767
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2012-12-31
The overall aim of the SSALT project is to throw light on the incubation of modern notions of the self and moral agency in the thought of the ancient world, their adoption and adaptation in the European and Arabic middle ages, and finally their transformation in the early mod...

Physically-based Virtual Acoustics
[PROJECT] PHDVIRTA - Physically-based Virtual Acoustics
ID: 203636
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
The objective of the project is to find new methods for quality evaluation and modeling of room acoustics. Room acoustics has been studied over 100 years, but, e.g., the relation between objective attributes and subjective measures is not fully understood yet. This project wi...
