      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The harmonic impedance spectra (HIS) of a time-varying bioimpedance Z(ω, t ) is a new tool to better understand and describe complex time-varying biological systems with a distinctive periodic character as, for ...
    • Hopping conductivity and polarization effects in a fullerene derivative salt 

      Macovez, Roberto; Zachariah, Manesh; Romanini, Michela; Zygouri, Panagiota; Gournis, Dimitrios; Tamarit Mur, José Luis (2014-06-12)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Impedance spectroscopy is employed to probe the frequency-dependent conductivity and dielectric response of the C60O24Na 24 fulleride. The conduction properties of this organic material match the so-called universal behavior ...
    • In vivo electrical bioimpedance characterization of human lung tissue during the bronchoscopy procedure. A feasibility study 

      Sánchez Terrones, Benjamín; Vandersteen, Gerd; Martín Robles, Irene; Castillo Villegas, Diego; Torrego Fernández, Alfons; Riu Costa, Pere Joan; Schoukens, Johan; Bragós Bardia, Ramon (2013-07)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Lung biopsies form the basis for the diagnosis of lung cancer. However, in a significant number of cases bronchoscopic lung biopsies fail to provide useful information, especially in diffuse lung disease, so more aggressive ...
    • Live monitoring of heart rate and blood oxygenation trend using non-contact IPPG 

      Luna Labrador, Javier (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-07-20)
      Master thesis
