    • Diseño y construcción de un Analizador Térmico Diferencial de alta presión para bajas temperaturas 

      Pizarro Aparicio, Alvaro (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2004-12)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
    • Dynamics of disordered systems 

      Vispa, Alessandro (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-11-24)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Disordered systems are ubiquitous in nature and their study is complicated and often leads to controversial results. In any case, the important role of such systems in science and technological applications should not be ...
    • Heterogeneous or Homogeneous dynamics? : A Bayesian model selection problem 

      Aznar Luque, Araceli (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Universitat de Barcelona, 2017-10)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    • Implementation of a Bayesian algorithm into Mantid for the analysis of neutron scattering data to reveal molecular movements 

      Monserrat López, Diego (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-02-04)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Data fitting and model selection lie at the very heart of the scientific method, however, these tasks are often tackled via the use of popular (and typically unquestioned) optimization algorithms of limited validity or ...
    • Local ordering and dynamics of plastic crystals 

      Henao Aristizábal, Andrés (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-09-23)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Many materials of scientific interest show a disordered phase, with their molecules presenting positional disorder, orientational disorder or both. Processes of interest to life also occur in these kind of phases as it is ...
    • Relaxation dynamics and crystallization kinetics of glass-forming drugs 

      Ruiz Tabbia, Guadalupe Natalia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09-14)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Glassy phases play an important role in our daily life and in many industries such as the food, pharmaceutical, and construction and are responsible for certain vital mechanisms in living species. Whereas crystals are solid ...
    • Short-range order in disordered phases using neutron diffraction 

      Rovira Esteva, Muriel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-09-26)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Neutron diffraction is a powerful technique that allows to probe the structure of disordered phases across a variety of length scales. However, due to the inherent complexity of these disordered hases, the analysis of the ...
    • Structural study of C2Cl6 by molecular dynamics 

      Henao Aristizábal, Andrés (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-09-22)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      English: A Molecular Dynamics study of hexachloroethane C2Cl6 was done in order to study the structure at different temperatures, varying from 300K to 480K. The system at 480K showed a liquid phase, as reported in the ...
    • Study of macroscopic and microscopic properties of liposomes produced using microfluidic methods

      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
      For the last decades, lipid vesicles or liposomes, vesicles formed by a bilayer of amphiphilic lipids, have been used as a toy model for studying the cell membrane and for applications in cosmetics and drug delivery. ...
