  • Environmental impact assessment of Swiss residential archetypes: a comparison of construction and mobility scenarios 

    Drouilles, Judith; Aguacil Moreno, Sergi; Hoxha, Endrit; Jusselme, Thomas; Lufkin, Sophie; Rey, Emmanuel (springer-Verlag, 2019-07-11)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Environmental performance assessment of the built environment tends to focus mostly on operational final energy consumption of buildings located within a specific context. Such a limited scope prevents broader usability ...
  • One-dimensional harmonically confined SU(N) fermions 

    Gordillo Bargueño, Maria Carmen; Mazzanti Castrillejo, Fernando Pablo; Boronat Medico, Jordi (American Physical Society (APS), 2019-08-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    We study the momentum distributions and spatial correlations of few harmonically confined SU(N) fermions using quantum Monte Carlo methods. In our study, we vary the spin degeneracy N from 2 to 6 and the total number of ...
  • The generalized Vogel-Fulcher-Tamman equation for describing the dynamics of relaxor ferroelectrics 

    Levit Valenzuela, Rafael; Martínez García, Julio Cesar; Ochoa Guerrero, Diego A.; García García, José Eduardo (Nature, 2019-08-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    Relaxor ferroelectrics (RF) are outstanding materials owing to their extraordinary dielectric, electromechanical, and electro-optical properties. Although their massive applications, they remain to be one of the most ...
  • Assessing beach and dune erosion and vulnerability under sea level rise: a case study in the Mediterranean Sea 

    Rodríguez Enríquez, Alejandra; Marcos Moreno, Marta; Falqués Serra, Albert; Roelvink, Dano (2019-01-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study, we estimate the shoreline retreat, the vulnerability and the erosion rates of an open beach-dune system under projected sea level rise (SLR) and the action of wind-waves (separately and in combination). The ...
  • Carbonaceous catalysts from orange pulp for limonene oxidation 

    Wróblewska, Agnieszka; Serafin, Jaroslaw; Gawarecka, Alicja; Miadlicki, Piotr; Urbas, Karolina; Koren, Zvi C.; Llorca Piqué, Jordi; Michalkiewicz, Beata (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The possibility of orange pulp utilization for nanoporous carbons production was investigated. Moreover, processing the obtained materials as limonene oxidation catalysts was studied as well. Limonene was separated from ...
  • A quality-model-based approach for describing and evaluating software packages 

    Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2002)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Selection of software packages from user requirements is a central task in software engineering. Selection of inappropriate packages may compromise business processes and may interfere negatively in the functioning of the ...
  • Adding security and privacy to genomic information representation 

    Delgado Mercè, Jaime; Llorente Viejo, Silvia; Naro, Daniel (IOS Press, 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Provision of security and privacy to genomic data is a key issue in current genomic information representation. Existing formats do not give a solution to these issues (or they provide a partial one), so new solutions are ...
  • 3D printed microstructured Au/TiO2 catalyst for hydrogen photoproduction 

    Elkoro Ugarteburu, Ander; Soler Turu, Lluís; Llorca Piqué, Jordi; Casanova Hormaechea, Ignasi (Elsevier, 2019-06-25)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We successfully 3D printed Au/TiO2 monoliths for photogenerating hydrogen from water/ethanol gaseous mixtures under dynamic conditions. Monolith designs were printed by additive superposition of microfilaments of titania-based ...
  • Introducing the Atmospheric Thermodynamics LidAr in Space – ATLAS 

    Di Girolamo, Paolo; Behrendt, Andreas; Wulfmeyer, Volker; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Keckhut, Philippe; Hauchecorne, Alain; Richard, Evelyne; Marenco, Franco; Vaughan, Geraint; Rotach, Mathias; Potthast, Roland; Geer, Alan; Demoz, Belay B.; Santanello, Joseph; Whiteman, David N.; Turner, David Dave (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Our understanding of the distribution of heat and water in the atmosphere still shows critical gaps on all temporal and spatial scales. This is mainly due to a lack of accurate measurements of water vapor ...
  • The use of compliant surfaces for harvesting energy from water streams 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (2019-09-13)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The possibility for hydrokinetic energy harvesting from small water streams by using compliant surfaces is considered. The basis of the proposed idea is the deliberate bifurcation of a water stream into two streams separated ...
  • Hyperspectral eye fundus imaging with extended spectral range towards the near infrared 

    Alterini, Tommaso; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Eye fundus photography routinely used in clinical practice is restricted to color imaging of the retina. In the last years, hyperspectral imaging has shown to be a powerful tool for the spectral analysis of biological ...
  • HIV drug resistance prediction with weighted categorical kernel functions 

    Ramon, Elies; Belanche Muñoz, Luis Antonio; Pérez Enciso, Miguel (2019-07-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Background: Antiretroviral drugs are a very effective therapy against HIV infection. However, the high mutation rate of HIV permits the emergence of variants that can be resistant to the drug treatment. Predicting drug ...
