    Im Unterschied zu anderen Bereichen der musikalischen Wahrnehmung gibt es zur Klangfarbenwahmehmung nur wenige Untersuchungen. Ein Grund dafür dürfte in den methodischen Schwierigkeiten liegen, die insbesondere bei der Untersuchung kleiner Kinder auftreten. Ein Klangfarbentest für Vorschulkinder existiert bislang nicht. Daher wurde nach mehreren Voruntersuchungen ein „Klangfarben-Memory“ als Methode entwickelt und bei Vorschulkindern eingesetzt. Die Ergebnisse dieser empirischen Studie werden...

    2009-05-22

    Arbeit beschaeftigt sich mit einem drei- zu zweiphasigen Matrixumrichter zur Speisung von kontaktlosen Energieuebertragungssystemen. Aufbauend auf einer Darlegung relevanter Untersuchungen zur Thematik werden zunaechst moegliche Resonanzanordnungen fuer kontaktlose Energieuebertragungssysteme untersucht. Die Betrachtung wichtiger elektrischer Parameter zeigt neben den Unterschieden der einzelnen Anordnungen auch, dass fuer eine auf den speisenden Umrichter fokussierte Untersuchung eine einfache Modellierung der drei untersuchten Resonanzanordnungen mit Hilfe eines Reihenschwingkreises moeglich ist. Als Konsequenz ergibt sich die Schlussfolgerung, dass sich die erzielten Ergebnisse auch fuer den Matrixumrichter mit anderen serienresonanten Lasten anwenden lassen. Der zweite Teil der Arbeit ist der Untersuchung des Matrixumrichters gewidmet. Basierend auf einer theoretischen Beschreibung wird die Kombination von hochfrequenten Steuerverfahren - wie z.B. der Blocktaktung - und niederfrequenten Pulsmustern zur Stellung des Oberschwingungsgehalts der Netzstroeme vorgestellt. Die Aehnlichkeit des Umrichters zu einem konventionellen Wechselrichter in H-Brueckenschaltung ermoeglicht anschliessend eine Betrachtung der Kommutierung und die Ableitung notwendiger Schaltzustaende. Diese sind dadurch gekennzeichnet, dass zu jedem Zeitpunkt genau eine bidirektionale Verbindung vom Eingangssystem zu jeder Ausgangsphase besteht. Die Funktionsweise der Kommutierung wie auch des gesamten Umrichters wird in einem ersten Schritt simulativ belegt. Dabei wird auch das dynamische Schaltverhalten der Leistungshalbleiter beruecksichtigt. Anschliessend werden an einem Laboraufbau aufgenommene Messergebnisse vorgestellt und mit den theoretischen Ergebnissen verglichen. Der Laboraufbau besteht aus dem Leistungsteil des Matrixumrichters mit Eingangsfiltern und modularen Gate-Treibern, einem DSP/FPGA-Steuerungssystem und einem kontaktlosen Energieuebertragungssystem mit sekundaerseitigem Gleichrichter

    A study conducted at the IHS had the aim to obtain basic information on whether it is possible to build flow turbines following the free jet principle that are on a par with, or superior to, the conventional design, especially in terms of performance and the efficiency curve. Several inflow contours with a ventilated free jet and a conventional flow turbine were studied. The direct comparison of these variants revealed a slightly enhanced peak load efficiency and a very distinct superiority of the free jet contour during partial load. But the efficiency of all variants failed to attain the values claimed by commercial manufacturers. As compared to the initial contour, peak load efficiency was enhanced by 5 per cent. During partial load, the variants studied showed a distinct superiority of the free jet concept over the contour of conventional flow turbines. (orig.) [Deutsch] Am IHS wurde eine Untersuchung mit dem Ziel durchgefuehrt, grundlegende Aussagen zu gewinnen, ob Durchstroemturbinen mit dem Freistrahlprinzip gebaut werden koennen, die dem konventionellen Design, vor allem in bezug auf Leistungsausbeute und Wirkungsgradverlauf, gleichwertig oder ueberlegen sind. Es wurden mehrere Anstroemkonturen mit belueftetem Freistrahl und einer konventionellen Durchstroemturbine untersucht. Der direkte Vergleich der am Institut untersuchten Varianten ergab bei etwas hoeherem Spitzenwirkungsgrad sehr deutliche Vorteile der Freistrahlkontur im Teillastbereich. Das Wirkungsgradniveau aller Varianten lag jedoch unter den Werten, die von kommerziellen Herstellern veroeffentlicht werden. Gegenueber der Ausgangskontur wurde im Spitzenwirkungsgrad eine Verbesserung von 5% erreicht. Im Teillastbereich ergibt sich fuer die hier untersuchten Varianten eine deutliche Ueberlegenheit der Freistrahlkonzeption ueber die Kontur konventioneller Durchstroemturbinen. (orig.)

  12. Investigation of mass transfer phenomena in biofilm systems; Untersuchung von Stoffuebergangsphaenomenen in Biofilmsystemen

    Substance transfer in the boundary layer bulk/biofilm can be only inadequately described by conventional model concepts. In such cases where the surface structure of a biofilm adapts to given hydraulic conditions, the substance transfer phenomena need to be studied in depth. In addition, the entire biofilm structure is much influenced both by substrate conditions and by hydrodynamic conditions during growth. With a view to quantifying these factors, biofilms were cultured under various substrate and hydrodynamic conditions in tube reactors with a diameter of 2.6 cm. For characterizing the cultured biofilms, biofilm density and substrate turnover measured as maximum mass transfer density were determined in each test series. Biofilm density (dry biomass/biofilm volume) was determined by gravimetry. Maximum mass transfer densities in biofilm were established in batch experiments with excess substrate. By means of oxygen microelectrodes, oxygen profiles in the biofilm were measured directly in the reactor. These measurements concerned biofilms of thicknesses ranging from 400 to 2000 {mu}m, where the biofilms did not yet exhibit erosion. (orig.) [German] Der Stoffuebergang in der Grenzschicht Bulk/Biofilm ist mit herkoemmlichen Modellvorstellungen nur ungenuegend beschreibbar. Eine sich an die aktuellen hydraulischen Bedingungen anpassende Oberflaechenstruktur des Biofilms erfordert eine intensive Untersuchung der Stoffuebergangsphaenomene in derartigen Systemen. Darueber hinaus wird die gesamte Biofilmstruktur sowohl von den Substratbedingungen als auch von den hydrodynamischen Bedingungen waehrend des Wachstums stark beeinflusst. Um diese Faktoren quantifizieren zu koennen, wurden Biofilme bei verschiedenen Substrat- und hydrodynamischen Bedingungen in Rohrreaktoren mit einem Durchmesser von 2,6 cm kultiviert. Zur Charakterisierung der kultivierten Biofilme wurde die Biofilmdichte und der Substratumsatz, gemessen als maximale Massestromdichte, bei jeder Versuchsreihe

    sowie die Untersuchung unter Einschluss funktioneller Tests stehen wie immer am Anfang der diagnostischen Strategie; wobei der Verletzungsmechanismus und das sportspezifische Belastungsmuster beruecksichtigt werden muessen. Regionale Inspektions-, Palpations- und Testbefunde der verletzten Struktur weisen auf eine Verdachtsdiagnose hin, die durch bildgebende Verfahren bestaetigt oder auch widerlegt werden kann. Durch den effizienten Einsatz bildgebender Methoden kann dann rasch die entsprechende Therapie eingeleitet werden. Die Sonographie gibt hier, aufgrund ihrer raschen Verfuegbarkeit, vor allem im Bereich von Muskeln, Sehnen und Baendern u. U. wertvolle Hinweise. Die nativradiologische Abklaerung im Bereich des Knochens muss oft durch Zielaufnahmen ergaenzt werden. Die MRT stellt im Bereich der Gelenkverletzungen den Goldstandard dar, wobei eine exakte differenzialdiagnostische Fragestellung hilfreich ist, das Untersuchungsprotokoll entsprechend durchzufuehren, um die fraglich pathologischen Strukturen moeglichst klar darzustellen.

    The driver/brake pedal interface gains increasing importance when one considers the increasing demands for driver safety and comfort in the vehicle, as well as Brake-by-Wire and braking assistance systems. The decoupling of the brake pedal from the rest of the brake system in the Brake-by-Wire power control braking system makes it necessary to give the brake pedal a specific characteristic. While this can only be slightly influenced in conventional brake systems due to the energetic coupling with the brake hydraulics, in future concepts this interface must be completely re-designed. At the Department of Automotive Engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt (fzd), supported by the automobile producer Ford, Inc., new methods for the investigation of brake pedal feel under actual conditions with a specially designed test vehicle have been the subject of research. (orig.) [Deutsch] Mit der absehbaren Einfuehrung von Brake-by-Wire und Bremsassistenzsystemen gewinnt die Schnittstelle Fahrer / Bremspedal zunehmend an Bedeutung. Die Entkopplung des Bremspedals vom restlichen Bremssystem macht bei Brake-by-Wire-Anlagen eine gezielte Auslegung der Bremspedalcharakteristik notwendig. Waehrend diese bei konventionellen Bremssystemen infolge der energetischen Kopplung mit der Bremsenhydraulik nur in engen Grenzen beeinflusst werden kann, muss bei zukuenftigen Konzepten diese Schnittstelle vollstaendig neu ueberdacht werden. Am Fachgebiet Fahrzeugtechnik der Technischen Universitaet Darmstadt (fzd) wird, unterstuetzt durch die Ford-Werke AG, an neuen Ansaetzen zur Untersuchung des Bremspedalgefuehls unter realen Bedingungen mit einem speziell hierfuer aufgebauten Versuchstraeger geforscht.

    Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) has become a routinely used imaging modality for congenital heart disease. A CMR examination allows the assessment of thoracic anatomy, global and regional cardiac function, blood flow in the great vessels and myocardial viability and perfusion. In the clinical routine cardiovascular MRI is mostly performed at field strengths of 1.5 Tesla (T). Recently, magnetic resonance systems operating at a field strengths of 3 T became clinically available and can also be used for cardiovascular MRI. The main advantage of CMR at 3 T is the gain in the signal-to-noise ratio resulting in improved image quality and/or allowing higher acquisition speed. Several further differences compared to MRI systems with lower field strengths have to be considered for practical applications. This article describes the impact of CMR at 3 T in patients with congenital heart disease by meanings of methodical considerations and case studies. (orig.) [German] Die kardiovaskulaere Magnetresonanztomographie (MRT) hat sich zu einer etablierten bildgebenden Methode zur Untersuchung von Patienten mit angeborenen Herzfehlern entwickelt. Sie erlaubt in einer einzigen Untersuchung die exakte Beurteilung von Anatomie, globaler und regionaler Funktion, Blutfluessen sowie der myokardialen Perfusion und Vitalitaet. In der klinischen Routine erfolgen die Untersuchungen zumeist bei einer Feldstaerke von 1,5 Tesla (T), mittlerweile gibt es jedoch Geraete und Bildgebungstechniken, die die kardiovaskulaere MRT auch bei 3 T ermoeglichen. Der wesentliche Vorteil der MRT bei 3 T ist das hoehere Signal-zu-Rausch-Verhaeltnis, das sowohl zu einer Verbesserung der Bildqualitaet als auch zu einer Verkuerzung der Untersuchungszeit genutzt werden kann. Darueber hinaus bestehen verschiedene andere Unterschiede gegenueber Systemen mit niedriger Feldstaerke, die im praktischen Einsatz beachtet werden muessen.

    The project has been running since 1st March 1998 and is supposed to investigate the technical feasibility and economic efficiency of the Gesotherm S heat supply system in the residential area Berlin-Biesdorf/Habichtshorst (1,000 flats). Main points of investigation are: proof of feasibility and geothermal analysis of the deep pit; analysis of storage possibilities and technical synergies of combined solar-geothermal operation; determination of the regenerative supply ratio; calculation of economic efficiency; estimation of cost-saving potentials. The whole system is simulated for these studies. A new simulation model was developed for the pit. Simulations are based on the SMILE-simulation environment developed by the Technical University of Berlin. First estimates indicate costs of DM 200 per MWh without subsidies. (orig.)

    Purpose: To describe the incidence, time course, and clinical correlates of hemorrhagic transformation (HT) of ischemic stroke in the posterior cerebral artery territory. Methods: Within 42 months 48 patients with 52 occipital lobe infarctions were examined by T{sub 1}- and T{sub 2}-weighted MR imaging. The extent and distribution of secondary hemorrhage were analysed at different intervals after stroke. Volume of ischemic and hemorrhagic infarction was measured planimetrically. Results: HT was observed in 71% of the infarcts between the 5{sup th} day and up to 1 year after stroke. HT was most frequently (88%) observed in the 2{sup nd} and 3{sup rd} month. HT was present in 55% of small infarcts (<10 cm{sup 3}), in 88% of medium size (10-50 cm{sup 3}), and in all large (>50 cm{sup 3}) infarcts. In 92% HT presented with petechial bleedings within the cortex (64%) or less frequently (28%) in subcortical structures. The latter types of HT showed no progression and did not increase the clinical deficits. Space-occupying bleedings occurred in only two large defects. Conclusions: In ischemic posterior infarction, HT can frequently be detected within the first three months after stroke and is predominantly of the petechial type and seems not to be relevant with regard to clinical deficits. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Im Beitrag wird vorgeschlagen, Medienkompetenz auch als Ordnungsbegriff zu verstehen. Dazu wird eine präskriptive, eine empirische und eine selektive Ordnung unterschieden. Mit einer induktiv-empirischen Untersuchung wird demonstriert, dass so ein Beitrag zum Verständnis des Medienkompetenzbegriffs geleistet werden kann, mit dem zugleich eine Kritik deduktiv-empirischer Ordnungen erreicht wird. Dabei wird gezeigt, dass ein Bezug auf aktuelle materielle Zeichenträger zugleich problematisch und notwendig ist. It is suggested to understand media literacy as an ordering term. A prescriptive, an empirical and a selective order are distinguished. In an inductive-empirical study it is shown, that this perspective can contribute to an understanding of media literacy and to a critical reflection of deductive-empirical orders. While doing so it is shown, that relating media literacy to contemporary material sign vehicles is problematic and necessary at the same time.

    The periodic instationary flow in guidevanes and runner of an axial hydraulic turbine is examined experimentally and numerically. The study is carried out at three different points of operation. The experimental study comprises the measurement of the velocity of the flow at midspan using a single channel Laser Doppler Velocimeter and the acquisition of the ozillating pressure at several locations in the casing. The unsteady numerical examination is carried out in a two dimensional plane at midspan of the runnerblades. The interaction between guidevanes and runner is taken into account by exchanging the flow properties at the adjoining edges of the two calculation grids. Further the influence of the tip clearance flow on the characteristics of the turbine is studied numerically by means of a three dimensional steady state calculation. The comparison of the results of measurement and calculation shows the abilities and the limitations of the applied numerical method. Moreover the results are helpful for the optimisation of the turbine with regard to higher efficiency and reduced cavitation. (orig.)

    The study reported covers 28 patients who were examined once by radiology before surgery, and twice after surgery. The first post-surgery examination was done on days 5-7, the second during the 4th until 6th month after surgery. For the first examination, water-soluble contrast agent was initially applied, then barium containing contrast agent. The second examination was done by modified double contrast technique. The most frequent, pre-surgery findings revealed gastro-esophageal reflux in 13 patients. The first post-surgery control detected a somastenosis in 2 patients, while the second control examination detected complications of various nature in 11 patients and gastro-esophageal reflux in 5 patients. In 6 patients, discrepancy between clinical and radiological findings was stated. The pouch size did not correlate with the frequency of complications, or with the body-to-mass index decrease. The examination method proposed in this article yields pre-surgery information on the anatomy of the stomach, more accurate dewscription of post-surgery complications, and better evaluation of the antireflux effect of the vertical gastroplasty.

    Twenty patients treated by surgery for Perthes` disease were studied between 4 and 9 years postoperatively. In the clinical investigation eight patients complained of persistent stress-induced pain. In nine patients flexion, extension, ab- and adduction of the hip joint was limited. In the MRI-Study of ten hip joints a reduction of fatty marrow was seen in the femoral head. In 11 hip joints of patients complaining of persistent pain, a deformation of the femoral head (n = 2), a dysplasia of the femoral metaphysis (n = 2), and diaphysis (n = 4) or both (n = 2) were seen. In another five patients an additional dysplasia of the acetabulum was visualized. All these findings were diagnosed by X-ray studies as well. However, only by MRI were the extents of the postoperative defects of femoral spongiosa diagnosed in fifteen hip joints. (orig.) [Deutsch] 20 wegen eines Morbus Perthes operierte Patienten wurden 4-9 Jahre nach einer Umstellungsosteotomie klinisch, radiologisch und kernspintomographisch untersucht.

    Full Text Available Zink (Zn ist eine essentielles Spurenelement. Es spielt eine wichtige Rolle in zahlreichen metabolischen Prozessen und wird auch für das normale Knochenwachstum benötigt. Ziel der vorliegenden Untersuchung war es, den Effekt von Zn auf a die Aktivität der alkalischen Phosphatase (ALP in Serum und Knochen, b das Serum-Osteocalcin, c die Tartrat-resistente saure Phosphatase (TRAP im Knochen, sowie d den Protein-Gehalt des Knochens darzustellen. Erwachsene weibliche Swiss-Webster-Mäuse erhielten entweder eine Zn-freie Diät, oder eine Diät, welche einen normalen, oder einen 2-, 3-, 4-, oder 5-fach höheren Zn-Gehalt als die Normal-Diät hatte. Die Diät wurde für 2, 4, oder 6 Wochen verabreicht. Es zeigte sich eine positive Korrelation zwischen der Menge des mit der Nahrung aufgenommenen Zn und der Serum-ALP (4 und 6 Wochen, p 0,001, der tibialen ALP (2, 4 und 6 Wochen, p  0,03, sowie dem tibialen Protein (2,4 und 6 Wochen p 0.001; weiters zeigte sich eine negative Korrelation zwischen Zn und tibialer TRAP (2, 4 und 6 Wochen, p 0,001. Kovarianzanalysen zeigten überdies, daß die Aktivität der Serum-ALP, der tibialen ALP und der tibialen TRAP, sowie die Menge des tibialen Proteins sowohl durch die Zn-Dosis (p 0,005, als auch die Dauer der Therapie (p 0,03 beeinflußbar sind. Zn zeigte auch einen signifikanten Einfluß auf den Serum-Osteocalcin-Spiegel (p 0,03 bei 3 x höher Zn-Menge als in der Normaldiät. In einer ergänzenden Studie zeigte sich auch, daß Zn zu einem dosisabhängigen Anstieg der ALP und des Proteins, und zu einem signifikanten Abfall der TRAP in murinen osteoblastenähnlichen MC3T3-E1 Zellen führt. Insgesamt kann aus den Ergebnissen der vorliegenden Studie geschlossen werden, daß eine schrittweise Erhöhung des Zn-Gehaltes der Nahrung zu einem entsprechenden Anstieg der ALP-Aktivität von Serum und Knochen führt.

    detaillierte Kenntnisse der an den Elektroden ablaufenden Reaktionsmechanismen. In der vorliegenden Arbeit wird der komplexe anodenseitige Reaktionsmechanismus in der Karbonat-Brennstoffzelle detailliert untersucht, mit dem Ziel, ein grundlegendes Verstaendnis ueber die an der Anode stattfindenden physikalischen und elektrochemischen Prozesse zu entwickeln und Einflussgroessen auf die Leistung der Brennstoffzellen-Stapel zu identifizieren. Dazu zaehlen die eingehende Untersuchung der parallel stattfindenden Oxidationsreaktionen von Wasserstoff und Kohlenmonoxid und ihrer reaktionstechnischen Parameter, die detaillierte Analyse von Stofftransport, Adsorption und Ladungstransport und die Betrachtung von Degradationsphaenomenen, welche sich degressiv auf Zellleistung und Lebensdauer auswirken. Fuer die experimentellen Untersuchungen stehen verschiedene Versuchsanlagen zur Verfuegung. Dazu zaehlen vorrangig Anoden-Halbzellen und Einzelzellen. Werkzeug zur Analyse der physikalischen und elektrochemischen Phaenomene ist die elektrochemische Impedanzspektroskopie (EIS), deren Ergebnisse in die Entwicklung eines Ersatzschaltbilds einfliessen. Die Verknuepfung der Elemente des Ersatzschaltbilds mit physikalischen Prozessgroessen erfolgt im Rahmen eines numerischen Modells fuer die MCFC-Anode. Die Impedanzspektren der MCFC-Anoden ergeben vier charakteristische Widerstaende: ohmscher Widerstand, hochfrequenter Widerstand, niederfrequenter Widerstand und Gesamtwiderstand. Der stark temperaturabhaengige hochfrequente Widerstand wird von der Elektrodenkinetik beeinflusst, waehrend der Stofftransport durch den niederfrequenten Widerstand ausgedrueckt wird. Es zeigt sich, dass die in der Literatur postulierten Mechanismen fuer die anodenseitige Oxidation von Wasserstoff unvollstaendig sind. Die Oxidation des Wasserstoffs folgt einer Reaktionsgeschwindigkeit (pseudo) negativer Ordnung. Voraussetzung hierfuer sind zwei adsorbierende, miteinander reagierende Spezies.

    Tracers are an ideal means of studying water movement and associated nitrate displacement. Often bromide is preferred as a tracer because it is considered a representative tracer for water and because, being a conservative tracer (i.e. not involved in chemical and biological soil processes), it can be used for studying anion transport in soils. Moreover, it is less expensive and easier to measure than the stable isotopes deuterium and {sup 15}N. Its great advantage over radioactive tracers (e.g. tritium), which outweighs their extreme sensitivity and ease of measurement and which it has in common with stable isotopes, is that it does not require radiation protection measures. However, there are also constraints on the use of bromide as a tracer in soil/water/plant systems. Our own studies on different soils using D{sub 2}O, bromide and [{sup 15}N]-nitrate in lysimeters suggest that the above assumptions on bromide tracers need not always be valid under conditions as they prevail in biologically active soils. As the present paper shows, these studies permit a good assessment of the possibilities and limits to these tracers. [Deutsch] Fuer die Untersuchung der Wasserbewegung sowie der daran gekoppelten Nitrat-Verlagerung ist der Einsatz von Tracern das Mittel der Wahl. Dabei wird Bromid als Tracer haeufig bevorzugt, da es allgemein als ein repraesentativer Tracer fuer Wasser und als konservativer Tracer (nicht involviert in chemische und biologische Bodenprozesse) zur Untersuchung des Anionentransportes in Boeden angesehen wird und es gegenueber den stabilen Isotopen Deuterium und {sup 15}N billiger und einfacher zu bestimmen ist. Gegenueber den radioaktiven Tracern (z.B. Tritium), die zwar sehr empfindlich und einfach messbar sind, besteht der grosse Vorteil, dass, wie bei den stabilen Isotopen, keine Strahlenschutzmassnahmen ergriffen werden muessen. Es gibt jedoch auch einschraenkende Hinweise fuer die Verwendung von Bromid als Tracer im System Boden

    Does a person's strategy of coping with traffic noise influence the extent to which he or she feels stressed by it? Ever sSince the seventies, noise research has been attempting to identify factors apart from the noise level that contribute to extraaural noise effects. This investigation discusses new results in the light of transactional stress theory and also investigates the influence of individual coping. Studies on 116 persons showed that it is not the concrete attempt to cope which is the decisive factor but a person's assumptions about his or her potential influence on the experienced noise and its effects, i.e. control. The degree of control experienced was found to be an intermediate step in the development of stress effects. [German] Hat die Art, wie Personen mit taeglich erlebtem Verkehrslaerm umgehen, Einfluss darauf, wie stark sie sich beeintraechtigt fuehlen? Seit den 70er Jahren bemueht sich die Laermforschung, Faktoren zu benennen, die neben dem Schallpegel an der Entstehung (extraauraler) Laermwirkungen beteiligt sind. Die vorliegenden Erkenntnisse erhalten hier durch ihre Einordnung in den Rahmen der transaktionalen Stresstheorien eine theoretische Fundierung. Gleichzeitig wird die Frage aufgeworfen, ob auch das Theorieelement Coping (individuelle Bewaeltigungsversuche) als Einflussfaktor fuer die Staerke von Laermwirkungen zu betrachten ist. Empirisch wurde geprueft, ob sich Gestoertheitsurteile und Schlafqualitaetsindikatoren bei schienenverkehrslaermbelasteten Personen in Abhaengigkeit vom individuellen Coping unterscheiden. Die Untersuchung an 116 Personen zeigte, dass nicht konkrete Bewaeltigungsversuche die Groesse von Laermwirkungen mitbestimmen, sondern die Einschaetzung, Einfluss auf den Laerm oder seine Wirkungen nehmen zu koennen (Kontrolle). Belegt wurde, dass die wahrgenommene Kontrolle einen Zwischenschritt bei der Entstehung von Gestoertheitsurteilen darstellt. (orig.)

    One of the greatest challenges facing humanity is climate change. Correspondingly, inter alia, the German government has set a target by 2020, to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases to the 1990 level by 20%. For this purpose can and should an increased energetic use of biomass contribute. End of 2007, the bioenergy had a share of around three quarters of the renewable primary energy input. Of which more than 45% were used for the heat supply. A total of more than 90% of renewable heat have been provided from biomass. From the provided amount of heat come over 80% from the combustion of solid biofuels - so far almost exclusively wood products - in small and medium wood-fuelled combustion systems. To reduce carbon dioxide emissions the federal government is accelerating a further expansion of energetic use of biomass in the heating sector. This expansion of thermal use of biomass, however, for reasons of pollution control, should not rise simultaneously with the emissions of air pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides or particulate matter. [German] Eine der groessten Herausforderungen fuer die Menschheit ist der Klimawandel. Entsprechend hat sich u.a. die deutsche Bundesregierung das Ziel gesetzt bis 2020 die Emissionen an Treibhausgasen im Vergleich zum Stand 1990 um 20 % zu mindern. Hierzu kann und soll eine verstaerkte energetische Nutzung der Biomasse beitragen. Ende 2007 hatte die Bioenergie einen Anteil von rund drei Viertel am erneuerbaren Primaerenergieeinsatz. Davon wurden mehr als 45 % fuer die Waermebereitstellung genutzt. Insgesamt wurden mehr als 90 % der erneuerbaren Waerme aus Biomasse bereitgestellt. Von der bereitgestellten Waermemenge kommen ueber 80 % aus der Verbrennung von festen Biobrennstoffen - bisher fast ausschliesslich Holzprodukte - in kleinen und mittleren Holzfeuerungsanlagen. Zur Verminderung der Kohlenstoffdioxidemissionen wird von Seiten des Bundes ein weiterer Ausbau der energetischen Biomassenutzung im Waermebereich forciert. Bei diesem Ausbau der thermischen Biomassenutzung duerfen aber aus Gruenden des Immissionsschutzes nicht gleichzeitig die Emissionen an Luftschadstoffen wie z. B. Kohlenstoffmonoxid, Stickstoffoxide oder Feinstaub ansteigen.

    Objective: to describe patterns of atlantoaxial fractures in a population of consecutive elderly patients, including assessment of type, distribution and associated clinical and radiological findings, and to analyze any influence of the causative trauma mechanism on the individual fracture pattern. Materials and methods: the distribution and type of 123 atlantoaxial fractures in 95 subjects older than 65 years (range: 65-102; mean age: 79 years) were retrospectively assessed. For each subject, trauma mechanism and clinical and neurological status were recorded at admission. Initial imaging studies of the cervical spine were reviewed. Preexistent degenerative changes were assessed and the atlantoaxial fractures classified. Data were evaluated for the frequency of different types of fractures of C1 and C2 and for accompanying fractures of cervical vertebrae or the occipital condyles, respectively. Results: the majority of patients with injuries of the atlantoaxial complex had fractures of C2 (90 of 95, 95%). A large proportion of these patients (67 of 90, 74%) had odontoid fractures. An isolated fracture of C1 was present in only 5 (5%) patients. Associated fractures of the occipital condyles or other cervical vertebrae were rare (10 of 95, 11%). The main trauma mechanism for atlantoaxial injuries was a fall (56 of 95, 59%). Elderly patients injured in motor vehicle accidents were more likely to have isolated fractures of C2 and Type III fractures of the odontoid (p < 0.02). Conclusion: in elderly patients, fractures of the atlantoaxial complex are mainly caused by falls and almost always involve C2. The trauma mechanism influences the fracture pattern (orig.)

    In order to clarify the chemical behaviour of Americium in saline aqueous systems relevant for final storage this study deals with the chemical reactions of trivalent and pentavalent Americium in NaCl-solutions under the influence of radiolysis from its own alpha radiation. The focus of the study was on investigating the geologically relevant reactions, such as hydrolysis or carbonate- and chloride complexing in solid-liquid equilibriums. Comprehensive measurements on solubility and spectroscopic studies in NaCl-solutions were carried out in a CO{sub 2}-free atmosphere and 10{sup -2} atm CO{sub 2} partial pressure. Identification and characterisation of the AM (III) and AM(V) solid phases were supplemented by structural research with the chemically analogue EU (III) and Np(V) compounds. The alpha-radiation induced radiolysis in saline NaCl solutions and the redox behaviour of Americium which was influenced thereby were spectroscopically quantified. (orig.) [Deutsch] Zur Klaerung des chemischen Verhaltens von Americium in endlagerrelevanten salinen aquatischen Systemen befasst sich die vorliegende Arbeit mit den chemischen Reaktionen des drei- und fuenfwertigen Americiums in NaCl-Loesungen unter dem Einfluss der Radiolyse durch die eigene {alpha}-Strahlung. Der Schwerpunkt dieser Arbeit lag auf der Untersuchung der geologisch relevanten Reaktionen, wie Hydrolyse sowie Carbonat- und Chloridkomplexierung in fest-fluessig Gleichgewichtssystemen. Hierzu wurden umfassende Loeslichkeitsmessungen und spektroskopische Untersuchungen in NaCl-Loesungen, sowohl unter CO{sub 2}-freier Atmosphaere als auch unter 10{sup -2} atm CO{sub 2}-Partialdruck, durchgefuehrt.

    Purpose: Experimental and clinical data suggest a reduction of radiation-induced acute toxicity by amifostine. We investigated this issue in a randomized trial comparing radiochemotherapy (RCT) versus radiochemotherapy and amifostine (RCT+A) in patients with head and neck cancer. Patients and methods: Forty-seven patients with pharyngeal or laryngeal cancer (T{sub 1-2}N{sub 1-2}G{sub 3},T{sub 3-4}N{sub 0-2}G{sub 1-3}) were randomized to receive RCT alone (21 patients) or RCT+A (21 patients). Patients were irradiated up to 60 Gy (R{sub 0}) or 70 Gy (R{sub 1/2}). Chemotherapy consisted of 70 mg/m{sup 2} carboplatin and was administered over 5 days in the 1st and 5th week of the radiotherapy course. 250 mg amifostine were applied daily just before each radiotherapy session. Acute toxicity was evaluated according to the Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC). As for xerostomia no patients with laryngeal cancer were assessed because in these cases only small volumes of the salivary glands were within the treatment volume. To evaluate the overall toxicity a summarized CTC score of all observed side effects was calculated. Results: Forty-two patients were evaluable. Clinical characteristics (age, sex, Karnofsky index, tumor-staging) were well balanced in both treatment groups. Amifostine provided reduction in xerostomia and mucositis. Conclusions: According to our preliminary results amifostine has a radioprotective effect on salivary glands. Mucositis can be reduced during radiochemotherapy. At this point of patient accrual the difference between both groups are statistically not significant. To improve the radioprotective effects of amifostine in clinical practice the application of a higher dose (>250 mg) seems to be necessary. (orig.)

    In the research project on the ''Review and development of safety-related assessments of disposal facilities with negligible heat generation; development and provision of the necessary set of tools, using the example of the Konrad disposal facility'' (Untersuchung und Entwicklung von sicherheitstechnischen Bewertungen fuer Endlager fuer Abfaelle mit vernachlaessigbarer Waermeentwicklung; Entwicklung und Bereitstellung des notwendigen Instrumentariums am Beispiel des Endlagers Konrad - Forschungsvorhaben 3612R03410), the state of the art in science and technology of the safety-related assessments and sets of tools for building a safety case was examined. The reports pertaining to the two work packages described the further development of the methodology for accident analyses (WP 1) and of building a safety case (WP 2); also, comparisons were drawn on a national and international scale with the methods applied in the licensing procedure of the Konrad disposal facility. As part of the project, the report of Work Package 1 depicts the methodology of the operating safety analysis in order to control malfunctions and incidents (accident analysis) using the example of the Konrad mine accident analysis. Set of criteria in this connection is the state-of-the-art international and national comprehensive body of legislation identifying the incident requirements. In extracts complementary safety analysis procedures of other countries are presented where applicable. It becomes apparent, that the majority of the investigated countries use a deterministic accident analyses to identify incidents. Here, common international practice is to com-plement the deterministic accident analysis by a probabilistic analysis. This procedure acts on the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) terms of reference using both deterministic and probabilistic methods for the determination of facility hazard potentials.

    The detriment of ICRP 103 is roughly defined as the product of the (organ specific) risk coefficient and the ''damage'' that may be associated with a (organ specific) cancer or hereditary effect, respectively. This is to indicate a weighted risk according to the radiation sensitivity of the different organs and the severity of damage that may possibly arise. Whereas the risk coefficients refer to radiation exposure parameters, the scale or degree of damage is independent of these parameters. The radiation independent parameters are the lethality, the loss of quality of life and the reduced life expectancy, which are considered as quantities associated with the severity of disease or damage, respectively. These parameters may change gradually, on the one hand possibly due to an increase of cancer becoming a common disease within the population. On the other hand, possibly to a decrease of cancer due to the progress in medical diagnostics and treatments that allow patients to survive or at least maintain a higher life quality standard. The damage and therefore the detriment appears to be mostly affected by the lethality. The lethality is the quotient of mortality to incidence. The investigation of the detriment presented in this paper focuses on the influence of the lethality on the detriment from 1980-2012 in Germany and USA.

    In der vorliegenden Arbeit wurde ein Koaxial-Hohlleiterübergang im Mikrowellenbereich (4.8 GHz) untersucht und verbessert. Diese Kopplung ist eine der Schlüsselstellen des sogenannten „Schottky-Detektors“. Dieser Detektor befindet sich innerhalb des Teilchenbeschleunigers des Large Hadron Colliders am CERN. Während der Arbeit wurden verschiedene Untersuchungen am Detektor durchgeführt und anhand der ermittelten Ergebnisse eine veränderte Kopplerstruktur entwickelt. Diese Struktur wurde zuerst anhand von verschiedenen Modellen in einer elektromagnetischen Feldsimulation überprüft und mit Hilfe verschiedener Algorithmen verifiziert. Im nächsten Schritt wurde ein Testaufbau entwickelt, mit dem eine Überprüfung und eine abschließende Betrachtung der Ergebnisse möglich war. Es konnte gezeigt werden, dass mit der neu entwickelten Struktur die Kopplereigenschaften wesentlich verbessert und die Zielvorgaben sogar deutlich übertroffen wurden.

    In the dissertation on hand monodisperse, wellordered magnetic cobalt and cobalt hydride nanoparticles have been produced and investigated magnetically. The preparation was achieved by diblock-copolymer-micelles filled with cobalt salt, from which nanoparticles of elementary cobalt respectively cobalt hydride were generated in different steps of the procedure. It was evident that the cobalthydride generated by the hydrogen plasma was surprisingly stable. It could even be taken into consideration as a hydrogen storage device for fuel cell. The magnetic properties of the particles has been investigated by x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD). In addition it was evident, that it was principally impossible to investigate a film layered on a substrate with a SQUID-magnetometer, if this film produces only a small signal as well absolutely as relatively to the magnetically measured total moment of the sample.

    More than 350 deposits from mining and processing in Baden-Wuerttemberg and Lower Saxony were visited, measured radiometrically, assessed by a unified scheme and partly sampled. The highest local dose rates, up to 100 mSv/a, were found in the waste from uranium exploration, as expected. The values of these planned wastes were followed by waste from silver-cobalt mining dumped above ground, with dose rates up to 20 mSv/a. Fly ash and slag deposits had a dose rate of about 2 mSv/a, and are comparable with many porphyry and granite rocks. The higher values of slag deposits from iron ore smelting were clearly due to high thorium content. The lowest doses were from stone waste from the mining of hydrothermal lead-zinc and iron ores. The analyses of uranium, radium 226 and lead 210 confirmed the radiometric measurements. The analysis of waste seepage water and tunnel outlets gave only a low number of values which exceeded the drinking water concentration according to the Radiation Protection Order. (orig./RB) [de

    The economic efficiency of biogas plants is more difficult to display with recent legal regulations than with bonus tariff systems of previous EEG amendments. To enhance efficiency there are different options, often linked with further investments. Direct technical innovations with fast economic yields need exact evaluation of limiting conditions. Within this article the heat sector of agricultural biogas plants is studied. So far scarcely considered, especially the improvement of on-site thermal energy consumption promises a high optimisation. Data basis are feeding protocols and temperature measurements of input substrates, biogas, environment etc., also documentations of on-site thermal consumption over 10 years. Analyzing first results of measurements and primary equilibrations shows, that maintenance of biogas process temperature consumes most thermal energy and therefore has the greatest potential of improvement. Passive and active insulation of feed systems and heat recovery from secondary fermenter liquids are identified as first optimization measures. Depending on amount and temperature raise of input substrates, saving potentials of more than hundred megawatt hours per year were calculated.

    Guenther, Marc M.

    2011-01-19

    The present work explores with the development of a novel nuclear diagnostic method for the investigation of the electron dynamics in relativistic laser-plasma interactions. An additional aim of this work was the determination of the real laser peak intensity via the interaction of an intense laser short-pulse with a solid target. The nuclear diagnostics is based on a photo-neutron disintegration nuclear activation method. The main constituent of the nuclear diagnostic are novel pseudoalloic activation targets as a kind of calorimeter to measure the high-energy bremsstrahlung produced by relativistic electrons. The targets are composed of several stable isotopes with different ({gamma},xn)-reaction thresholds. The activated nuclides were identified via the characteristic gamma-ray decay spectrum by using high-resolution gamma spectroscopy after the laser irradiation. Via the gamma spectroscopy the ({gamma},xn)-reaction yields were determined. The high-energy bremsstrahlung spectrum has been deconvolved using a novel analysis method based on a modified Penfold-Leiss method. This facilitates the reconstruction of the spectrum of bremsstrahlung photons without any anticipated fit procedures. Furthermore, the characterization of the corresponding bremsstrahlung electrons in the interaction zone is accessible immediately. The consolidated findings about the properties of the relativistic electrons were used to determine the real peak intensity at the laser-plasma interaction zone. In the context of this work, experiments were performed at three different laser facilities. First Experiments were carried out at the 100 TW laser facility at Laboratoire pour l'Utilisation des Lasers Intense (LULI) in France and supplementary at the Vulcan laser facility at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in United Kingdom. The main part of the activation experiments were performed at the PHELIX laser facility (Petawatt High Energy Laser for heavy Ion EXperiments) at GSI-Helmholtzzentrum fuer Schwerionenforschung GmbH in Germany, which were the first nuclear activation experiments at this facility. The results obtained with the novel nuclear diagnostics method have lead to an advanced understanding of high-energy electrons produced in relativistic laser-plasma interactions. Particularly, the capability of the nuclear activation-based method to determine the real laser peak intensity at the relativistic laser-plasma interaction zone was demonstrated. (orig.)

    Full Text Available The so called "Nerv-Sprech" is a newly coined term classifying a specific group of colloquial phrasemes considered annoying by many German speakers. Apart from this affective evaluation of these phrasemes, their main common characteristic is the fact that they are the result of different processes of modification and/or incorporate paradoxical meaning.The online edition of the German magazine Der Spiegel has published a web dictionary of "Nerv-Sprech"-units, which functions as a ready-made corpus. This article categorizes these phraseological units as slogans, pragmatic or predicative phrasemes. Furthermore, in order to evaluate the validity of the term "Nerv-Sprech" from the point of view of the language system, I examine whether there are semantic or structural modifying aspects that are dominant among the phrasemes (and if so, which ones. Finally, a ludic function of "Nerv-Sprech" is postulated as a result of the creativity in modifying these phrasemes.

    2001-01-01

    The object of the present thesis is the search for CP-violating effects in the mixing of neutral B mesons. For this the time-dependent CP asymmetry in the decay of completely inclusively reconstructed B0 mesons was studied. The basis of the analysis were about 4.1 millions hadronic Z decays, which were token up in the years 1991-1995 with the ALEPH detector at the e+e- storage ring LEP at CERN. From the data b hadron decays were inclusively reconstructed by means of a search for secondary decay vertices. By a fit to the decay-time spectra od identified B0 and anti B0 decays the following value of the semileptonic asymmetry in the Bd0- anti Bd0 system could be determined: aCP=0.016±0.034(stat.)±0.009(syst.). This value can be alternatively interpreted as a measurement of the CP-violating parameter Re εB: Re εB/(1+ vertical stroke εB vertical stroke 2)=0.004±0.009(stat.)±0.002(syst.). Furthermore a combination of the results of this analysis with a further ALEPH measurement was performed. The value of aC...

    Two strains of Pseudomonas putida were isolated during enrichment of caffeine-degrading microorganisms of the two, the strain Pseudomonas putida WS grew on media containing up to 2% of caffeine as the sole source of carbon and nitrogen. Of 25 further strains of bacteria and fungi, only one yeast also had caffeine-degrading characteristics. Caffeine degradation was much slower than with the two Pseudomonas strains, and caffeine was used only as a nitrogen source. This suggests two alternative methods of methyl xanthine production: 1) When graining Mutant H8 on glucose caffeine, the reaction could be interrupted with good yields after a short time. This method requires the processing of a complex mixture of caffeine, theobromine, and heteroxanthine. 2) When growing Mutant H8 on a mixture of peptone meat broth plus caffeine, the reaction can be interrupted with average yields after near-complete conversion. This method is recommended for heteroxanthine production, owing to the fact that peak heteroxanthine yields of 50% are not reached until all other methyl anthines have been converted more or less completely.

    Defects in electronic components and defects caused by electronic components are a frequent cause of fire damage. 35 % of examined cases of fire damage are found to be caused by electrical equipment or by the handling of electricity. Fire damage caused by electronic elements and in electronic assemblies may have a multitude of causes. Minor damages occurring during the manufacture of electronic components and assemblies can lead to operational disruptions in electronic devices and to life-threatening situations. In order to reconstruct a fire damage, a complex failure analysis and comprehensive knowledge of the principle of operation of the devices is required. Metallographic target preparation serves to detect and describe faults. Some damage patterns taken from practice are presented and analyzed here.

    Within this thesis, instruments for the localised characterisation of fuel cells and fuel cell stacks have been created. The simultaneous multi-channel impedance spectroscopy was implemented and applied to fuel cells for the first time. A measurement device has been developed that can be used to simultaneously apply various localised measurement methods to fuel cells during operation. Within this work, mainly current density and localized impedance measurements were used. Additionally, the temperature distribution of the active fuel cell area was determined and the water condensation was visualised. Several fuel cells have been developed, constructed and assembled to carry out localised characterisation. An algorithm has been developed to evaluate impedance spectra that separate the processes in the fuel cell according to their different time constants. This algorithm is based on a system of physical model equations that provide time- and location-dependent descriptions of the different processes in the cell. This allows the quantitive extraction of physical parameters from the impedance spectroscopy results. To perform localised simulation, a three-dimensional, two-phase, stationary model was adopted cell. A simple one-dimensional fuel cell geometry was used to demonstrate that the three-dimensional model reliably describes the processes under various operation conditions. The model validation was also successfully carried out for various complex fuel cell geometries. With the localised characterisation methods, air flow field geometries of fuel cells were successfully analysed. It could be explained how the microporous coating of the diffusion layer influences the current density distribution. The water balance of a number of different gas flow geometries was successfully characterised. As a result, an optimised flow field design with a double meander has been developed. The water content has been improved so that the efficiency is increased, and the current density distribution is more homogeneous. Multiple meanders are known from other technical applications. The localised characterisation carried out in this thesis demonstrated for the first time the superiority of this geometry. Here, the ratio of channel rib width is important, and the double meander design provides an optimal gas supply due to higher convective transport in the diffusion layer. This geometry was superior to all other evaluated air flow fields with regard to the power density and the homogeneity of the current production in the active area. It could be shown that geometries with parallel channels have considerable disadvantages. Individual channels may be clogged by liquid water. Since no considerable pressure builds up in the clogged channel, the water is not reliably removed. This problem is exacerbated with the interdigitated structure where the dead-end channels are even more easily clogged. Therefore, such flow field designs cannot provide a high fuel cell power density. Furthermore, the simultaneous impedance spectroscopy was used to determine a flooding event of a fuel cell in a stack a few minutes before the flooding event resulted in a reduced power production in this cell. The model-based evaluation of the measured impedance spectra was used to clearly identify the flooding event and quantify the reduction of the open space in the porous electrode of the fuel cell. Due to these findings, a new control concept for fuel cells could be developed that is based on the impedance measurement. It was shown that the impedance spectroscopy can be used to identify malfunctions in advance caused by liquid water. The air flow variation is a suitable instrument to actively intervene in the fuel cell operation and to prevent flooding events. Controlling the fuel cell operation using a combination of the impedance spectroscopy and the air flow variation is an ideal instrument to stabilise the fuel cell operation at a high level. (orig.)

    The diagnostic value of several physiological parameters for the evaluation of free damage in a ninety years old spruce stand near Ratzeburg (Northern Germany) has been studied. The physiological parameters studied were: level of abscisic acid (ABA) and proline in green, healthy-looking needles of trees with different degrees of damage, the qualitative and quantitative variation of free and bound amino acids, the activity of water soluble peroxidase, the emission of ethylene and the water status. The degree of tree damage was characterized according to the loss of needles. The results show that twigs from trees with strong symptoms of damage had lower values of water potential and turgor potential in comparison to trees with less severe symptoms. During the winter season these differences were less pronounced or even not observable. Green needles from trees with strong needle loss produced more ethylene and had higher levels of abscisic acid and proline than needles from undamaged trees. (orig./KG).

    Textured and rough surfaces are known to increase light trapping in solar cells significantly. The development and optimization of these nano-structures is essential to improve the energy conversion efficiency of thin-film solar cells. In the past, first research approaches covered classical and macroscopic investigations, e.g. determining the haze or angularly resolved scattering. These methods do not provide precise explanation for the optical improvement of the devices, because layer thicknesses and structure sizes in thin-film solar cells are smaller than the wavelength of visible light. The impact of local nano-structures and their contribution to the local absorption enhancement is not resolved by macroscopic measurements. In this thesis, near-field scanning optical microscopy is introduced as first near-field investigations of nano-structures for photovoltaics. This provides an insight into local optical effects for relevant surfaces of photovoltaic devices. Investigating the distribution of the electric fields in layer stacks is crucial to understand the absorption in solar cells. Evanescent fields, which occur due to total internal reflection at the interfaces, are measurable by near-field scanning optical microscopy and yield important information about local light trapping. Within the framework of this thesis, correlations between local surface structures and optical near-field effects are shown. In this case structure features of randomly textured surfaces, which optimize local light trapping, are identified. It paves the way to connect microscopic optical effects on the surface with the macroscopic performance of thin-film solar cells. Moreover, the measurement yields a 3D illustration of the electric field distribution over the sample surface. It is an important criterion to prove the results of rigorous diffraction theory. An excellent agreement between experiment and simulation is found. The simulations provide an insight into the material, which is not accessible by the experiment. Therefore, impacts of optical improvements such as absorption enhancement due to different surface textures or properties of selective and diffractive filters can be studied. (orig.)

    The microstructures of dissimilar metal welds between 9Cr-1Mo (Modified) (P91) and austenitic stainless steel (AISI 304) with Ni-based alloy interlayers (Inconel 625, Inconel 600 and Inconel 800H) are reported. These interlayers were deposited by the friction surfacing method one over the other on P91 alloy, which was finally friction welded to AISI 304. In this paper, the results of microstructural evolution in the friction surfaced coated interlayers (Inconel 625, 600, 800H) are reported. For comparative purposes, the microstructures of consumable rods (Inconel 625, 600, 800H) and dissimilar metal base metals (P91 and AISI 304) were also reported. Friction surfaced coatings exhibited dynamic recrystallization. In friction surfaced coatings, the carbide particles were found to be finer and distributed uniformly throughout the matrix, compared to their rod counterparts.

    This work presents design guidelines for two categorically different concepts of a power plant turbine inlet duct; a ring-type inlet chamber and an inlet scroll. Subjects of the analysis are aerodynamic considerations of the flow field in the ducts as well as the impact of the chamber topology on the radial clearances influencing casing deformations in stationary and transient load cases. To show the reliability of the CFD-program used, calculated results are compared with measured data. The numerical method catches the main physical effects observed in the reference cases with high accuracy. The flow field in the ring-type inlet chamber strongly depends on the Reynolds number Re; according to Re a symmetrical or swirling flow field can be observed. The calculations indicate that measured values in test stands of inlet ducts with a Reynolds number that is not comparable to the full-size model should be examined carefully. The optimization of the ring-type inlet chamber leads to a geometry with minimum losses from an aerodynamic and mechanical point of view. The greatest benefit can be realized by an optimized flow into the downstream following stator blades. The analysis of the inlet scroll unveils a negative influence of eccentrically arranged pipe ends on the leakage losses. For the casings investigated a very compact design leads to minimum total losses. When choosing the scroll topology, the leakage losses should be minded, as the link between scroll size and casing deformation is not negligible. A comparison of both optimized inlet chambers shows that they have the same loss level. The selection of one concept should take into account stress distributions and the offsets of casing flanges including their consequences.

  11. Spectroscopic investigation of new fullerene based acceptors for organic solar cells; Spektroskopische Untersuchung neuartiger Fullerenakzeptoren fuer organische Solarzellen

    2012-04-27

    The main topic of my thesis was the optical spectroscopy of accepters for organic bulk-heterojunction polymer-fullerene solar cells in the visible till near-infrared regime. Pure fullerene samples as well as blends of fullerenes with polymers were studied. Additionally measurements regarding the morphology, spin states and solar cell performance were done. The aims were to determine the ability of new molecules as acceptors for organic solar cells, to find and understand the photoinduced absorption signatures of optical excited anions on fullerene bulks of different sizes and finally to learn about the charge carrier generation process in polymer:Lu{sub 3}N rate at C{sub 80} blends and thus understand the origin of the comparable low current density in this devices, about 25 % less than for P3HT:PC{sub 61}BM solar cells. In our publications due to these topics we presented that the novel C{sub 70}-C{sub 70} dimer fullerenes are fine acceptors for polymer:fullerene solar cells, showing a better absorption coefficient around 500 nm than C{sub 60} based acceptors and high singlet-exciton quenching rates. Anion signatures for fullerene molecules of different sizes were clearly found for C{sub 60{sup -}} at 1.18 eV and for C{sub 70{sup -}} at 0.92 eV. Less clear are my findings regarding the signatures for C{sub 80{sup -}} and C{sub 84{sup -}}. Due to the low signal-to-noise ratio in these measurements and some unique properties of the available materials I was only able to indicate a range from 0.7 eV down to 0.4 eV for the optically detected anion signatures of these fullerenes. Still all fullerenes showed a red shift to lower energies for the anion signatures getting stronger the more carbon atoms the fullerenes were made of. The most detailed research in this thesis was done about the Lu{sub 3}N rate at C{sub 80} molecules application as electron acceptor in P3HT:Lu{sub 3}N rate at C{sub 80} solar cells. The use of this acceptor in combination with P3HT lead to a high open circuit voltage of 835 mV in the devices produced, but also a rather low current density. I tried to understand the processes in the charge carrier generation and extraction process causing this. Using several measurement techniques, combined with general knowledge about comparable endohedral fullerenes from the literature, I was able to identify an internal charge transfer of electrons from the lutetium atoms encaged in the C{sub 80} to the fullerene bulk as origin The results presented in this work give further indications for the advantages of using C{sub 70} based fullerene acceptors in organic solar cells to raise the total power conversion efficiencies of these devices, despite the higher production costs. The identification of anion signatures of different fullerenes show an additional method to monitor the excitation processes by optical spectroscopy in bulk-heterojunction devices. My research regarding the Lu{sub 3}N rate at C{sub 80} molecule showed a general effect regarding this class of molecules, that will be important for any further synthesizes or application of such molecules in organic photovoltaics. While the projects regarding the dimer acceptors and the Lu{sub 3}N rate at C{sub 80} molecule were completed in this work, the analysis of spectroscopic anion signatures left some open questions, especially for large fullerenes. Further investigations using spin sensitive or time resolved techniques, as available in our research group, could be useful to gather more detailed information on this topic. Also trying to get some PC{sub 81}BM for photoinduced absorption measurements, alone and in blend with several polymers, might be another way to energetically pinpoint the anion signature on C{sub 80}.

    2012-06-04

    The present work deals with the high-temperature thermoelectric properties of transition metal [eg V, Cr, Mn, Ni, Cu] and lanthanide [e.g. Sc, Y, Gd, Er, Dy]-borides. In particular, intercalation compounds of beta-rhombohedral boron, compounds of the type MB{sub 66}, dodecaborides and hexaborides were examined. In the case of intercalation compounds of beta-rhombohedral boron it was found that the incorporation of metals such as Sc, Mn or Cu result in favorable thermoelectric properties. The reason is most likely the preferred occupation of the metal position M2 instead of M4. Composites, for example, DyB{sub 66}-DyB{sub 12} show high electrical conductivities, high Seebeck effects at high temperatures due to the presence of DyB{sub 12} and low thermal conductivities as a result of the DyB{sub 66} matrix. At 1100K the composite DyB{sub 66}-DyB{sub 12} shows a ZT value of 0.55, thus exceeding the ZT of boron carbide (B{sub 13}C{sub 2}) at this temperature which is considered the best p-type boride material. A composite of ErB{sub 12}-ErB{sub 4}-ErB{sub 2} has negative Seebeck coefficients and shows a ZT value of 0.5 at 840K. Furthermore, the structure of tetragonal Scandiumdodecaboride ScB{sub 12} was solved on the basis of synchrotron data from a crystalline powder, after it has been debated for decades but never fully resolved.

    Results are represented on investigations of diethone, a new pharmacon to prevent and treat radiogenic skin injuries. Diethone is a synthetic antioxidant of the dihydropyridine line. In animal experiments the preparation was used in form of an oitment. Irradiation was done with beta and soft roentgen rays in doses of 20 to 60 Gy on conditions of a tele or contact radiotherapy. A reduction of intensity and duration of radioreactions by more than 50% and a slighter occurrence of radioreactions were shown. The protecting effect of diethone is much stronger than that of mexamine, cystamine and other radioprotectors. Application of this preparation in treatment of radiogenic dermatitides results in relief of inflammation appearances, in shortening of recovery time, and in accelerated skin regeneration. The intravital investigations of skin by means of contact luminescence microscopy and investigations using light and electron microscopy did not give any alterations in structure of regenerated skin in diethone-treated animals compared with controls. Also a better conservation of protected intracellular membranes especially of mitochondrial membranes were seen. General penetration of {sup 14}C-diethone into skin occurs within two hours after application of oitment. (author).

    Stable translocations and insertions which are not selected against during cell proliferation can be reliably scored by use of fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) which allows painting of selected chromosomes along their entire length. This temporal persistence makes them particulary valuable for quantifying post human radiation exposures ('biodosimetry'). A disadvantage of this approach is that for routine use only a partial genome analysis can be performed which is mostly based on triple combinations of DNA probes for particular chromosomes. Translocation frequencies from partial genome analysis are often scaled-up to equal the full genome. Basic assumptions for such scaling are, that double strand breaks leading to translocations must be distributed randomly throughout the genome and no preferential interaction between particular pairs of chromosomes occurs. Thus, the probability of a particular chromosome being involved in an exchange is proportional to its DNA content. However, this is not always supported by experimental findings and may thus indicate a differential radiosensitivity of particular chromosomes. Translocation measurements in peripheral blood of different healthy donors irradiated in vitro with the same dose revealed also some evidence for the existence of interindividual differences in radiosensitivity. Similar findings have been already demonstrated after therapeutic irradiation of tumour patients. Consequences thereof may result for long-term retrospective biodosimetry. In order to provide reliable estimates of an individual's exposure to ionising radiation, the extent, distribution and dose-dependence of the observed variability has to be carefully examined in larger groups of persons and larger sets of calibration data. (orig.) [German] Durch die Anfaerbung kompletter Chromosomen mit Hilfe der Fluoreszenz-in-situ Hybridisierung (FISH) lassen sich die waehrend der Zellproliferation als stabil angesehenen Translokationen und Insertionen zuverlaessig erfassen. Aufgrund ihrer zeitlichen Persistenz bieten sie gute Voraussetzungen fuer eine retrospektive Dosisrekonstruktion von Strahlenexpositionen (biologische Dosimetrie). Ein Nachteil ist dabei, dass in der routinemaessigen Anwendung immer nur Teilgenom Analysen, meist in Verwendung von Dreierkombinationen bestimmter Chromosomen als DNA Sonden, vorgenommen werden koennen. Grundsaetzlich ist zwar aus diesen Teilgenom Daten eine Hochrechnung auf gesamtgenomische Aberrationsraten moeglich, dies setzt jedoch voraus, dass Doppelstrangbrueche, die zu Translokationen fuehren, zufaellig im Genom verteilt sind und dass es keine bevorzugte Wechselwirkung zwischen bestimmten Chromosomenpaaren gibt. Dies bedeutet, dass die Wahrscheinlichkeit der Beteiligung eines Chromosoms an einem solchen Strukturaustausch proportional zu seinem DNA Gehalt ist. Da experimentelle Daten jedoch zeigen, dass dies keineswegs immer der Fall ist, koennte dies ein Hinweis auf eine unterschiedliche Strahlensensibilitaet bestimmter Chromosomen sein. Translokationsanalysen bei verschiedenen gesunden Spendern nach in vitro Bestrahlung von Blutproben mit gleichen Dosen, ergaben offensichtliche interindividuelle Unterschiede der Strahlenempfindlichkeit. Aehnliche Befunde sind von Tumorpatienten nach strahlentherapeutischen Massnahmen bekannt. Konsequenzen aus diesen Beobachtungen koennten sich fuer die biologische Dosimetrie ergeben. Um eine zuverlaessige individuelle Dosisrekonstruktion lange zurueckliegender Strahlenexpositionen zu gewaehrleisten, ist es notwendig, Ausmass, Verteilung und Dosisabhaengigkeit dieser Variabilitaet an groesseren Personenkollektiven und Kalibrierdatensaetzen zu untersuchen.

    Purpose: in the context of stem cell transplantation (SCT), we often observe neurological complications as a consequence of immune system suppression, conditioning therapy or prophylaxis and treatment of graft-versus-host disease. Furthermore, cerebral lesions in existence prior to transplantation can be found. The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefit of cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) prior to stem cell transplantation. Patients and method: cerebral MR examinations of 116 children and adolescents were performed before SCT. Patients ranged in age from 1.1 to 21.4 years (mean 12.6 years). All MR images were obtained by a 1.5 T System. The predefined short protocol included an axial T1-weighted SE sequence and a coronary T2-weighted TSE sequence. We evaluated existing cerebral lesions, the diameter of the ventricular system, and the paranasal sinuses. In the case of pathological findings, the short examination protocol was expanded. Results: in 5 of 116 children (4.3%) we observed prior to SCT findings requiring immediate treatment although the patients did not show any clinical symptoms (1 x aspergilloma, 1 x hemorrhage of vascular anomaly). An increased risk of bleeding caused by cavernoma or another vascular anomaly without hemorrhage also had to be taken into account. 32 of 116 patients (37.1%) showed atrophic lesions. In 42 children (36.2%), we observed affections of the paranasal sinuses. (orig.)

    The mesoscale dynamic processes, which contribute to the formation of precipitation in the vicinity of fronts, are investigated using dynamically initialized fields of the EM. Cross-sections perpendicular to 12 fronts elucidate, that the ageostrophic cross-frontal circulation is the dominant dynamical feature of a front. Precipitation develops in the upward branch of this secondary circulation closely related to the humidity budget including three-dimensional advection and source terms. The dynamical mechanisms (deformation- and shear-forcing), which dominate the development of both ageostrophic cross-frontal circulation and precipitation, are of very different type. Primitive models of fronts, like the polar front theory, don`t come up with this variability of the atmospheric forcing. (orig.) [Deutsch] Die mesoskaligen dynamischen Prozesse, die in der Umgebung von Fronten zur Bildung von Niederschlag fuehren, werden mit Hilfe von dynamisch initialisierten Feldern des EM untersucht. In Querschnitten senkrecht zu insgesamt 12 Fronten kristallisiert sich die ageostrophische Querzirkulation als bedeutendstes dynamisches Element einer Front heraus. Im aufsteigenden Ast dieser Sekundaerzirkulation entsteht, in engem Zusammenhang mit dem Haushalt der spezifischen Feuchte mit seinen besonders wichtigen Advektions- und Quelltermen, Niederschlag. Die dynamische Mechanismen (Deformations- und Scherungsforcing), die zur Ausbildung der Querzirkulation fuehren, sind in hohem Masse variabel. Dieser Mannigfaltigkeit des atmosphaerischen Antriebes werden einfache Frontmodelle, wie z.B. die Polarfronttheorie, nicht gerecht. (orig.)

    Strong turbulent flow along the wings in the wake of starting or landing aircraft are a danger to the aircraft next in line and limit the starting and landing frequency. The degree of turbulence depends mostly on aircraft weight but the aerodynamic design clearly has an effect. The author investigated the influence of airfoil geometry, both experimentally and numerically. [German] Im Nachlauf von startenden und landenden Flugzeugen bilden sich starke Fluegelrandwirbel aus, die ein grosses Gefahrenpotential fuer nachfolgende Flugzeuge darstellen und somit die maximal moeglichen Start- bzw.

In der vorliegenden Arbeit wird der Einfluss der Fluegelgeometrie eines Flugzeugs auf seinen Nachlauf experimentell sowie numerisch untersucht. (orig.)

    If the same type of biomass is harvested at different times, preserved by different technques and then processed into fuel, the physical and chemical characteristics of the fuel will differ. After describing biomass fuel of the `wet line`, the author carried out investigations of lumpiness, bulk density and materials density of chopped materials in order to obtain a preliminary physical characterisation. Two samples of wood chips were characterized as well. The chemical description started with an analysis of nutrient content, acidity and concentrations of fermentation acids in the `wet line` biomass. (orig.)

Mit der Analyse der Naehrstoffgehalte sowie der Aciditaet und der Gehalte an Gaersaeuren in den Biomassen aus der Feuchtgutlinie sollte die chemische Beschreibung begonnen werden. (orig.)

    Motorized traffic is one of the most important emittents of particular airpollution, which are mainly known as fine dust. Fine dust is prior generated by combustions processes in the engine, but also by abrasion of brakes, tires and pavement. Several national and international researchgroups have found a close relation between exposition to fine dust and a set of pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases. For protection of human health a set of rules have been enacted, which should have lead to a reduction of fine dust. In addition to rules restricting fine dust concentration in the air, boundary values for fine dust emission of vehicles were set up. Due to the high and rising amount of traffic legal boundary values were exceeded at many places, which make more measures necessary to reduce fine dust concentration. Driving bans and technical measures are two possible ways following boundary values, but causes restrictions and costs. Due to this alternatives were searched to follow boundary values. In the scope of a research project founded by the federal highway administration the contribution of street greening to reduce fine dust concentration was obtained. To answer this question eight kinds of plants were examined in lab-scale experiments. In addition to this experiments on-site measurements were performed at two highways with real vegetation-structures. Further on a computer based modell was developed to describe separation of particles on leaves numerical. In face of the several experiments performed at the end of the project no clear answer can be given to the underlying question. A part of lab-scale experiments showed, that plants are able to separate particles onto their leaves in different dimensions. Other experiments could not confirm this and lead to no clear statements. Performed calculations of simulated leaves and hedges prior showed a separation of particles with a size lying above the relevant size range for immission. Just as a part of lab-scale experiments and on-site measurements lead to no clear statement. Finally no statement can be given, whether or not street greening is suitable to reduce the concentration of fine dust. Due to high importance of the topic experiments will be still carried out in the scope of future research projects. (orig.)

    Due to the worldwide increasing number of cases of chronic kidney diseases renal imaging - as a non-invasive technique in magnetic resonance imaging - has become a very important tool for an early diagnosis of probable insufficiencies and malfunction. Especially, dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) provides a technique to derive physiological parameters like renal blood flow or glomerular filtration rate. Similar to the entire field of abdominal imaging, the major problems are motion artifacts that primarily arise from the patient's respiration. The self-navigating BLADE-sequence with a post processing motion correction is an approach that does not require breath holding and is therefore also easily applicable to patients who are not able to undergo multiple breath hold examinations. In this work, a T1-weighted BLADE-sequence was optimized to demonstrate the feasibility of this technique to perfusion imaging. The number of phase-encoding lines of one BLADE has a direct impact on the reduction of motion artifacts. In comparison to standard DCE-MRI sequences, the developed BLADE-sequence with optimized number of phase encoding lines could significantly reduce motion artifacts. A quantitative analysis revealed that up to a 50% displacement of the kidneys could be corrected. Therefore, it was demonstrated that dynamic motion corrected measurements without the need of a breath hold-technique are feasible. (orig.)

    Laboratory experiments were carried out on illuminated TiO/sub 2/-electrodes to examine the possibility of conversion and storage of solar radiation in a chemical system especially as hydrogen from the photolysis of water. Methods of preparation of new photosensitive semiconducting electrodes were studied. For the preparation of the electrodes various technique of vapour deposition and surface treatment including ion implantation were employed. The thin-layered electrodes were characterized by absorption spectroscopy and by electrochemical methods. The results of the investigations are published in 29 original contributions quoted as references and in 3 PhD thesis of co-workers. Using solar radiation only small yields of hydrogen were obtained in the photolysis of water on TiO/sub 2/ electrodes. Nevertheless it is concluded that photoelectrochemistry possesses a high potential in photocatalysis and in investigations of photooxidation processes occurring in the atmosphere. (orig.)

    In vehicle powernets with a voltage higher than 20 V the possibility for the formation of electrical arcs is given. For that reason the electronics department of the fka analyses the characteristics of arc faults in vehicle powernets. Theoretical investigations and their validation by practical experiments help to determine the characteristic values of arcs. Regarding the insertion into powernets of real vehicles, either specific or general topologies get simulated. A further task of the ''fka powernet test bench'' is to bring out the technical validation of protection devices preventing arcing faults. For that purpose the protection devices get integrated into a realistic powernet replication to analyse their functionality. Within the scope of an analysis arcing faults were simulated which appear in commercial vehicle powernets by different reasons. For these purposes standard arcing tests were applied which are commonly used in aerospace and military applications. The analysis resulted in the cognition that a revision of the standard arcing tests is necessary to (a) improve the reproducibility of the tests, (b) to simulate the automotive surrounding more life like and (c) to enable a standardisation of the tests. In this article the revised tests are described. With these tests arc faults can be generated which can be used to verify the functionality of protection devices. The proposed tests can be used as a basis for standard tests. (orig.)

    In the present thesis the linear polarization of radiation emitted in energetic ion-atom collisions at the ESR storage ring was measured by applying a novel type of position, timing and energy sensitive X-ray detector as a Compton polarimeter. In contrast to previous measurements, that mainly concentrate on studies of the spectral and angular distribution, the new detectors allowed the first polarization study of the Ly-{alpha}{sub 1} radiation (2p{sub 3/2}{yields}1s{sub 1/2}) in U{sup 91+}. Owing to the high precision of the polarimeters applied here, the experimental results indicate a significant depolarization of the Ly-{alpha}{sub 1} radiation caused by the interference of the E1 and M2 transition branches. Moreover, the current investigation shows that measurements of the linear polarization in combination with angular distribution studies provide a model-independent probe for the ratio of the E1 and M2 transition amplitudes and, consequently, of the corresponding transition probabilities. In addition, a first measurement of the linear polarization as well as an angular distribution study of the electron-nucleus Bremsstrahlung arising from ion-atom collisions was performed. The experimental results obtained were compared to exact relativistic calculations and, in case of the Bremsstrahlung, to a semirelativistic treatment. In general, good agreement was found between theoretical predictions and experimental findings. (orig.)

    The present thesis establishes an optimised concept of a delamination technique suitable for ultra high vacuum (UHV) with which model systems of buried interfaces were made accessible for surface sensitive methods which were applied to investigate their electronic and topographical properties. A primary focus of this work is on the question how buried interfaces could be accessed successfully for surface sensitive methods using buried metal/NTCDA and metal/PTCDA interfaces as model systems. Contacts of approximately 10 x 15 mm{sup 2} in size were accessed. The second focus of the thesis is on the investigation of the electronical and topographical properties of the buried interfaces, for which some similarities between delaminated metal (Au,Ag)/ PTCDA- and Ag/NTCDA interfaces were found: After the delamination of top-contacts there were inhomogeneous layers of molecules on the metal contacts. Whereas PTCDA covered metal contacts had thicker molecular layers (4-5 ML PTCDA on Ag), NTCDA covered contacts showed only one monolayer coverage over large areas of at least 2 mm in diameter. Regions with multilayer coverage showed smooth surfaces whereas metal surfaces showed a fissured, meander-like and rough surface. Both contact systems also had in common that the adhesive made PES investigations of valence states very difficult. Furthermore, it was possible to thin out the molecular layers thermally but afterwards no valence states could be measured. Investigating in-situ delaminated buried interfaces, the focus was on metal (Au,Ag)/PTCDA interfaces first. The molecular layers could be successfully desorbed thermally at 260 C to 1-3 monolayers so that valence states were investigated. The spectra of the in-situ delaminated and thermally desorbed Ag/PTCDA contact were noticeably broadened so that the positions of HOMO and FLUMO could only be estimated at 1.9 eV and 0.7 eV, respectively. Additionally, interfaces of Ag/NTCDA contacts were investigated. With UPS it was found that the HOMO position was at 2.3 eV and the position of the FLUMO at 0.6 eV. Additionally, the work function was determined to be 4.9 eV. Furthermore, the valence structure of a contact was investigated. Also, a model is presented which could help to explain why only monolayers remain on the metal contact after delamination. Investigations of the topography revealed that delaminated Ag/NTCDA contacts are relatively rough at a RMS-roughness in the range of 18-24 nm and had a skewness of 0.5 to 1.5. Finally, two peculiarities of delaminated Ag/NTCDA contacts were investigated: The first one were topographical structures which seemed to be holes in the metal layer seen through the optical microscope. By means of atomic force microscopy (AFM) it was revealed that these structures where small areas of a higher roughness. The second topographical peculiarity were dark areas of different sizes on delaminated Ag/NTCDA contacts seen in the optical microscope. AFM investigations could identify these dark areas as NTCDA-crystallites which had a thickness between 500 to 600 nm. (orig.)

    Until now, predominantly closed, single-stage refrigeration cycles are used in the transport refrigeration. Two-stage cooling circuits facilitate new circuit variations and result in a significant increase in the energy efficiency in comparison to single-stage refrigeration cycles. This is especially true for the natural refrigerant R744 (carbon dioxide). Due to the thermodynamic features in the range of transport refrigeration R744 provides an alternative to the predominantly used synthetic refrigerants R404A and R410A with an enhanced global warming potential.The authors of the contribution under consideration report on a two-stage laboratory system which enables experimental investigations of transport refrigeration and is operated with the coolant R744. This two-stage laboratory system with an internal heat exchanger on a medium-pressure level continuously supplies coldness for normal refrigeration and deep-freezing. The design of the laboratory plant is based on a reference system for motor vehicles and thus corresponds to the practical conditions. First experimental results at an ambient temperature of 30 Celsius are presented and discussed.

    Fatigue crack growth of short and long cracks was investigated for both materials: the Nb-stabilized austenitic stainless steel X6 CrNiNb 18-10 and the ferritic-bainitic steel 22 NiMoCr 3-7. These both steels belong to the materials in the primary circuit of german power plants. For a reliable estimation of the lifetime of components subject to cyclic fatigue a detailed knowledge of the phenomena accompanying fatigue processes and which cause both - initiation and growth of fatigue cracks is essential. The deformation induced transformation of austenite into α'-martensite at room temperature is thus very important in the initiation and growth of fatigue cracks. Because these processes are manifest at first at the microlevel, the use of methods which reveal information at high resolution is of significant importance. In order to study the initiation and growth of short cracks, cylindrical smooth specimens, compact tension C(T)- and modified C(T)-specimens have been used. Cyclic crack propagation of long cracks was investigated on compact tension C(T)-specimens with W=50 mm and B=10 mm. The SEM, TEM and EBSD technique are powerful methods for determining crystallographic orientation, for the identification of individual phases and for recealing plastic deformation. They were used for analyses of microcracks in combination with interrupted cyclic tests. The impact of crack closure on the threshold parameter ΔK{sub th} and the crack growth rate da/dN was investigated experimentally for the growth of long cracks under cyclic loading for different R-values at room temperature. Additional tests were performed at T=288 C in order to investigate the role of temperature on crack growth rates. The effect of overloads in tension and compression as another factor influencing the crack growth was also studied. Measured crack growth curves were fitted using Paris and Erdogan-Ratwani law as well as the NASGRO-equation. Fracture surfaces of selected specimens for both steels were investigated in SEM in order to find out the differences between austenitic and ferritic-bainitic structures. The experimental results for cyclic crack growth behaviour have been compared with the reference curves for ferritic and austenitic steels in ASME XI Code.

    In the framework of this thesis it has been succeeded to develop a worldwide unique measurement apparatur, by which hydrogen-molecule ions can be ionized by means of short laser pulses and the reaction product kinematically completely measured. For this a detection method following the Coltrims technique, in which both protons and electrons can be detected over the complete spatial angle. The H{sup +}{sub 2} ions origin from a high-frequency ion source and are accelerated to 400 keV. This ion beam is overlapped with a 780-nm laser pulse othe pulse length 40 fs. After the reaction the molecule ions fragments either via the dissociation channel H{sup +}{sub 2}+nh{nu}{yields}H+H{sup +} or via an ionization followed by a Coulomb explosion: H{sup +}{sub 2}+nh{nu}{yields}H{sup +}+H{sup +}+e{sup -}. The projectiles are detected after a drift path of about 3 m on an ion detector. For the detection of the electrons a special spectrometer was concipated. In the reaction it comes by the comparatively long pulse length already at low intensities to dissociation processes. The dissociating molecule reaches still during the increasing side of the laser pulse in this way distances, in which the charge-resonance-enhanced-ionization (CREI) can take place. Also the angular distribution of the measured protons lying in a very small angular range around the polarization direction of the laser suggests that CREI is the dominant ionization process. At circular polarization however a netto-acceleration of the electrons perpendicularly to the direction of the electric field at the ionization time takes place, so that the measurement of the electron momenta represents a suited measurement quantity for the study of the ionization process. By this way angular distributions of the electrons relatively to the internuclear axis within the polarization plane could be measured.

    In March 2011, the nuclear power plant Fukushima Dai-ichi was seriously damaged by a tsunami caused by an earthquake. During the accident large quantities of radionuclides, mainly of the volatile elements cesium and iodine, were released to the environment. In small amounts refractory elements such as plutonium and uranium have also been released. Plutonium and the uraniumisotope {sup 236}U have primarily been delivered by human activities in the environment. Large amounts were released during the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests. Additional sources are accidents in nuclear facilities, like Chernobyl. Every source has its own characteristic isotopic composition. It is therefore possible to determine the origin of the contamination by measuring the isotopic ratios of {sup 240}Pu/{sup 239}Pu and {sup 236}U/{sup 238}U. These ratios can be determined by using accelerator mass spectrometry. Due to its high sensitivity, it is possible to measure even small amounts of plutonium and especially of {sup 236}U. These measurements were performed using the compact 500 kV facility ''TANDY'' of ETH Zurich. In 2013 and 2015 vegetation, litter and soil drill core samples were taken in the contaminated area in Fukushima prefecture. In 2015 samples were taken as close to the sampling locations of the 2013 campaign as possible. After isolation of plutonium and uranium by chemical extraction, separate targets were prepared for the measurement. The {sup 240}Pu/{sup 239}Pu ratios indicate global fallout as the plutonium source for most samples. The plutonium of the reactors of Fukushima Dai-ichi is located in the upper layers like in vegetation or litter. From the uranium ratios alone the reactors could not unambigously be identified as the source of {sup 236}U. However, this is plausible in the cases were reactor plutonium was detected. None of the samples contained higher plutonium activity concentrations than in the rest of Japan, caused by global fallout. This holds even for the samples where the reactors were identified as the source from the isotope ratios. This and the strong localization, even for neighboring sampling sites, indicate that the overall small quantities of plutonium were most likely released as particulate matter.

    First, this paper describes a study on the technology behind the electromagnetic variable valve timing system. This system provides highly efficient and stable valve opening/closing control. At first, the main purposes of this mechanism were nonthrottling technology that is expected to a reduction in fuel consumption and improving the engine torque with optimal valve timing on stichomythic spark ignited engine. In resent years, increasing attention has been paid to a homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI). We also used this mechanism on HCCI study with controlling the amount of internal EGR and intake air. Schemes to extend the operational region of gasoline compression ignition were explored using single (optical) and 4-cylinder 4-stroke engines equipped with an electromagnetic variable valve timing system. This paper focuses mainly on the use of direct fuel injection devices (multi-hole and pintle types), exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) through valve timing, and their effects on the compression ignition operating ranges, and emissions. Also considered is charge boost HCCI using a mechanical supercharger. (orig.)

    In this thesis the wave packet dynamics of nuclear spin isomers of polyatomic molecules after interaction with static and time-dependent magnetic fields and moderate intense nonresonant laser pulses is investigated. In particular, the process of inducing (internal) molecular rotation as well as alignment of molecules by manipulating their rotational or rotational-torsional degrees of freedom is studied. In the first part of the thesis all theoretical concepts for identifying nuclear spin isomers and for describing their quantum dynamics will be discussed. Especially the symmetrization postulate and themolecular symmetry group will be introduced and illustrated for some examples of molecules. These concepts will be extended to the case of identifying nuclear spin isomers in the presence of an external field. In the second part it is shown for nitromethane that magnetic fields are able to induce unidirectional rotations in opposite directions for different nuclear spin isomers of molecules containing methyl groups if the dipolar interaction is included. Additionally, it is demonstrated that different nuclear spin isomers of a chemical compound may show different alignment after the interaction with a moderate intense laser pulse. As shown for the rigid symmetric top propadien and the rigid asymmetric tops ethene and analogues, distinct pairs of nuclear spin isomers show at certain points in time a complementary behavior: while one isomer is showing alignment the partner isomer is showing anti-alignment. Moreover, it is illustrated that not every nuclear spin isomer can be aligned equally efficient. The alignment of non-rigid molecules is considered as well. As an example for a molecule with feasible torsion in the electronic ground state, the alignment of diboron tetrafluoride is investigated. It becomes apparent that not only rotational but also the torsional dynamics of the molecules is nuclear spin selective; different nuclear spin isomers have at distinct points in time a complementary molecular structure. As an application of nuclear spin selective quantum dynamics, the possibility is explored how two laser pulses can be used for exciting directed motions differently for different nuclear spin isomers. Likewise, the separation of isotopomers is discussed. The thesis closes with a discussion of the models used here and an outlook on how the obtained results may be used to separate nuclear spin isomers.

    Optimisation and development of technical combustion systems in order to generate energy efficiently and reduce pollution is an ever-increasing challenge. Mathematical and numerical simulations play a very important role in this context. This project was dedicated to the implementation and improvement of mathematical models and subsequent verification of the modelling concepts. Verification used data measured by the university department for combined cyle turbines. The focal point of interest was the reaction zone near the burner. Further points of interest: development and improvement of models for two-phase effects, fuel consumption and turbulence interaction as well as further development of the methods of numerical simulation. Simulating the combustion chamber of the combined cycle turbines was prioritised.(orig.) [German] Die Optimierung und Weiterentwicklung technischer Verbrennungssysteme mit dem Ziel einer moeglichst effizienten und schadstoffarmen Energiebereitstellung stellt eine staendig wachsende Herausforderung dar. Bei der technologischen Umsetzung dieses Ziels kommt der mathematisch-numerischen Simulation eine immer groessere Bedeutung zu. In diesem Projekt sollte die Implementierung und Verbesserung von mathematischen Modellierungsansaetzen sowie die anschliessende Verifikation der Modellierungskonzepte anhand der Messdaten des Lehrstuhls fuer Dampf- und Gasturbinen (LDuG) durchgefuehrt werden. Der Schwerpunkt lag in der brennernahen Reaktionszone. Konkrete Arbeitsschwerpunkte waren die Weiterentwicklung und Verbesserung der Modellansaetze fuer Zweiphaseneffekte, Brennstoffumsatz und Turbulenzinteraktion sowie die Weiterentwicklung der Methodik der numerischen Simulation. Dabei stand die Simulation der Brennkammer des LDuG im Vordergrund. (orig.)

    Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy was used to investigate the transition area of water from the monomer to nanoparticles. To achieve the ambient temperature range from 130 K to 300 K in a collisional cooling cell a cooled gas plant was established. With the given parameters a transition temperature of 167 K was found. This temperature appeared to be a bifurcation point: small fluctuations of the temperature - due to the fuzzy control of the cell heating - caused distinct changes of the spectra. Slight increments of the temperature extend the transition period monomer/nanoparticle and let significant deviations to the typical particle spectrum occur (appearance and width of the band, respectively). The H{sub 2}O (D{sub 2}O)/He sample gas mixtures were generated by a reliable dew-point technique and were injected into the collisional cooling cell at the corresponding temperature. (orig.)

    Three process variants for direct desulfurisation in the dry state of coal gasification gases by partial oxidation of H{sub 2}S were investigated in Prenflo conditions: 1. Heterogeneously catalyzed partial oxidation of H{sub 2}S on fly dust followed by sulfur deposition on the dust; 2. Non-catalyzed partial oxidation of H{sub 2}S in a homogeneous gaseous phase followed by sulfur deposition in a spray separator; 3. Heterogeneously catalyzed partial oxidation of H{sub 2}S in a fixed bed. The experiments were carried out in conditions similar to the crude gas conditions of slag bath gasification at SVZ Schwarze Pumpe. The fixed bed materials investigated were hearth furnace coke, Berl saddles, and an activated carbon developed specially for the investigations, Oxorbon CJ. The focus of the investigations was on the envisaged continuous operation of the process. [German] Im Rahmen der vorliegenden Arbeit wurde an einer zu diesem Zweck modifizierten Technikumsanlage die trockene Direktentschwefelung von Brenngasen aus der Kohlevergasung durch partielle Oxidation von H{sub 2}S untersucht. Im Vordergrund standen zwei Verfahrensvarianten, deren Eignung fuer die Bedingungen der Prenflo-Vergasung ueberprueft werden sollte: Variante 1: die heterogen katalysierte Partialoxidation von H{sub 2}S an Flugstaub mit anschliessender Schwefelabscheidung auf dem Staub und, Variante 2: die nichtkatalysierte Partialoxidation von H{sub 2}S in homogener Gasphase mit anschliessender Schwefelabscheidung in einem Spruehabscheider. Ausgehend von den Versuchsergebnissen der Verfahrensvarianten 1 und 2 wurde zusaetzlich als Verfahrensvariante 3 die heterogen katalysierte Partialoxidation von H{sub 2}S am Festbett untersucht. Diese Versuche orientierten sich an den Rohgasbedingungen der Schlackebadvergasung des SVZ Schwarze Pumpe. Als Festbettmaterialien kamen Herdofenkoks, Berlsaettel und eine, speziell fuer diese Verfahrensvariante entwickelte Aktivkohle Oxorbon CJ, zum Einsatz. Die Eignung des Verfahrens fuer eine kontinuierliche Betriebsweise stand im Vordergrund der Betrachtungen. (orig.)

    In the Indinger garden centre at Brunn, the low temperature ground and rack heating (heating the soil by hoses laid 2-5 cm deep in the ballast bed) is compared with conventional heating. Loss of heat of ground heating downwards was prevented by insulating under the hoses with styropor. At low outside temperatures, vegetation heating in the ground and on the table for decorative plants is not sufficient by itself, a thermal insulation umbrella must be used or the peak demand must be met by the old heating system. The lower the air temperature, compared to the pot temperature, the greater is the energy saving. The air and pot temperature must be controlled independently of one another. For the same energy consumption, the pot temperature was 2 K higher. The success in growing things was excellent. (orig.).

    The legal regulations and the customers' requirements as regards vehicle comfort are growing more and more stringent. This also includes the transmission systems, as they are expected not so show any obvious acoustic or dynamic weaknesses. Modern simulation methods permit evaluation and optimization of structure-borne and airborne noise in the early stage of development. Especially the FE method is a well-established technique for the simulation of structure-borne sound. With regard to complex transmissions, multibody simulations (MBS) can provide valuable insights for a realistic evaluation of the dynamic behaviour of a transmission. This is demonstrated using a truck transmission as an example. (orig.)

    For production and investigation of pulsed polarized electron beams at the superconducting accelerator S-DALINAC pulsed laser-systems with bunch lengths of smaller than 20 ps are required. These enable production of spin polarized electrons from GaAs semiconductors by photo-effect. Therefore the source of polarized electrons uses laser-diodes and a Titanium:Saphire-laser-system. The minimal pulse length of two diode-laser-systems was measured to be 50 ps for the 780 nm diode and 20 ps for the 415 nm diode. On the other hand the Titanium:Saphire-laser-system delivers a pulse length of several hundreds femtoseconds. A long term operation mode for the S-DALINAC polarized injector (Spin) is provided by the laser-diodes using continuous wave mode at the accelerator fundamental frequency of 3 GHz. The Titanium:Saphire-laser-system works at a repetition rate of 75 MHz and causes on the contrary temperature dependent failures in the pulsed operation mode. This dissertation took investigations of changes in intrinsic laser parameters related to the temperature. Temperature stabilization of better than ±0.015 K over one week was achieved. Furthermore with soft aperture the stability of the mode-locking could be increased. This effect has been simulated and proven experimentally. Although the laser was temperatur stabilized, pulse length deviations of 200 fs to 330 fs were observed. This correlation probability is determined to be 81%. Furthermore, this work deals with the transport of ultra short laser pulses over a distance of approximately 40 m. A fiber with a length of about 50 m was used and a coupling efficiency of smaller 40% was achieved. Here the bandwidth enlargement of the Titanium:Sapphire-laser up to 50 nm as a function of intensity was determined. In this case the optical laser pulse with the length of (260±20) fs will be extended chromatically to (80±6) ps. An intensity-dependent behavior of the electron polarisation has been found. It depends on the laser power and on the center wavelength λ{sub 0}. To reduce these effects a free laser beam transfer has been build up, too. By using a Piezo mirror and a developed feedback control system it was possible to achieve a positional accuracy of <10 μm at a control frequency of 2 Hz over 66 h at the location of the cathode. With an additionally installed narrow slit the bunch length could be characterized with a resolution of (7.0±3.5) ps. Here, a phase jitter of the electron beam of 2.2 ps at a measuring time of 30 min was determined. Due to the run time differences of the laser beam during transfer, which are caused by the feedback control system, one more negligible jitter of 1.6 fs appeared. The measurements indicate an additional mode inside the chopper cavity. This changes the position of phase of the laser pulse with respect to the chopper state. This effect was measured with the 780 nm laser-diode and to be between 30 ps and to 80 ps. From experimental results, that was modeled and reproduced by a simulation, a genuine bunch length of (50.0±0.2) ps could be determined. The measurements of the longitudinal (bunch length) and of the transverse (beam diameter) beam profile have shown space-charge effects already at a bunch charge of 1 fC. To compensate the pulse broadening in the 50 m long fiber, a pulse compressor was built. With the aid of it and the usage of a bulk GaAs photo-cathode the lengths of the electron bunch could be varied between 30 ps to 80 ps. The intensity and polarization of the electron bunches from a bulk- and a superlattice GaAs cathode were measured with good phase resolution using the chopper-slit-method. In the case of bulk cathode, an average polarization of (31.0±3.5)% and a peak polarization of (49.1±5.6)% was yielded. In the case of superlattice cathode an average polarization of only (38.4±4.4)% and a peak polarization of (65.7±7.5)% were achieved. The new modell that was developed in this work takes into account not only intensity deviations in the electron bunch but also can describe polarization changes. To enable this higher order of recombination terms for electron-hole pairs was needed. This model adds to the recombination rate (measured values for bulk GaAs) (1/A=(40±10) ps) of Spicer three-step model, the effect of optical recombination (B=(1±3).10{sup -10} cm{sup 3}/s), Auger recombination (C=(5±2).10{sup -28} cm{sup 6}/s) and the spin-flip term (1/K=(61.6±2) ps). With this model, predictions about the behavior of bulk GaAs cathode could be made, that promise the appearance of saturation effects and non-linear behavior at high carrier densities.

    Cuprate materials containing rare earth ions were studied. The main experimental tools were inelastic and elastic neutron scattering techniques. Some {mu}SR, susceptibility and specific heat measurements were also performed. One aim was to learn more about the crystalline environment of the rare earth ions in these substances via the crystalline electric field (CEF) interaction. Furthermore, we investigated the correlations of the magnetic moments of these ions by a determination of the dispersion of the CEF excitations. The theory that is essential for the understanding of this work is outlined. The instruments on which the experiments have been performed are presented. We show the measurements of the CEF excitations of Ho{sup 3+} in Y{sub 0.99}Ho{sub 0.01}Ba{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 6+x}. The Ho ions represent ideal local probes to examine changes of the charge distribution in the copper oxide planes upon doping with oxygen. To prevent any influence of the Ho-Ho exchange interaction on the CEF excitations we performed the experiments on substances containing only one percent of Ho. Our results show that for all the intermediately doped compounds the charge distribution is very inhomogeneous. For all the highly doped samples we observe a line asymmetry for which several possible origins are discussed. We examine the Pr{sup 3+} CEF excitations in the Pr{sub 2-x}Ce{sub x}CuO{sub 4(-{delta})} (0{<=}x{<=}0.2)-substances. Our results show a coexistence of different environments of the Pr ions in all the doped compounds. We try to describe these inhomogeneities with the help of a model. We used the {mu}SR-technique on some of these samples in order to learn more about the oxygen reduction process. Finally, we performed inelastic neutron scattering experiments on Pr{sub 1.86}Ce{sub 0.14}CuO{sub 4} single crystal, which allowed a direct determination of the coupling constants between the magnetic moments of the Pr ions.

    In the present work, new and advanced methods for the investigation of methanol and hydrogen powered fuel cells were analyzed. Synchrotron radiography and tomography were applied to investigate materials and transport processes in operating fuel cells ''in-situ'' and non-destructively. The corrosion of ruthenium is a key issue during aging of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC). Therefore the influence of different aging processes on the distribution of ruthenium is of great interesting. An imaging method based on X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) was applied to investigate the changes in the distribution of fuel cell catalysts three-dimensionally. Using monoenergetic synchrotron radiation it was shown that the distribution of ruthenium (Ru) in the anode catalyst changes after application of an accelerated aging procedure. A strong influence on the flowfield and the gas diffusion layer structures on the Ru distribution were found in the gas diffusion electrode at the anode side. Additionally some ruthenium moves through the membrane from the anode to the cathode. The redistribution caused by the accelerated aging procedure strongly differs from that obtained after aging under realistic stack operation (here over 1700 h) of a fuel cell in a pallet transporter. For the tomographic investigations samples were taken out from a stack operation in aged membrane electrode assembly (MEA) and were analyzed ex-situ. It was shown that the Ru redistribution can be attributed to mass transport processes (CO{sub 2} and H{sub 2}O) in the gas diffusion layer (GDL). Other high energy resolved measurements showed that the strength of the oxidation of ruthenium and platinum depends on the spatial distribution of the ruthenium. Last mentioned - also for the platinum catalyst - could be given quantitatively by means of this newly developed method. In the second part of this work high temperature polymer electrolyte fuel cells (HT-PEFC) were investigated. No liquid water can be found due to the high operation temperature of 160-200 C in this cell type. Hence conventional analysis methods are not applicable here. In especial the product water is very important for the electrical conductivity of the membrane and changes the state of the phosphoric acid inside the membrane and the electrodes. For the first time, the water balance in a HT-PEFC at different operating conditions was characterized in-situ during cell operation. The characterization was based on measured changes in the membrane transmittance and its thickness. Suitable models allowed calculating the water balance of the membrane. The influence of different operating conditions on the redistribution of the phosphoric acid between the electrodes and in the membrane was analyzed. The analysis is complemented with investigations of polarization curve recording and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.

    the present thesis deals with the ion-collision-induced electronic excitation of metallic solids. For this for the first time metal-insulator-metal layer systems are used for the detection of this electronic excitation. The here applied aluminium/aluminium oxide/silver layer sytems have barrier heights of 2.4 eV on the aluminium respectively 3.3 eV on the silver side. With the results it could uniquely be shown that the electronic excitation is generated by kinetic processes, this excitation dependenc on the kinetic energy of the colliding particles, and the excitation dependes on the charge state of the projectile.

    The Jet-in-Crossflow flow arrangement is a geometrically simple flow configuration in which an open jet is injected vertically into a constant crossflow and the two flows are thus mixed with one another. This flow arrangement is frequently encountered in industrial applications and also in nature. Examples can be found in industrial burners, RQL gas turbines, T-mixers, smoke plumes from stacks and volcanoes, and the jets emitted by aviation gas-turbines and by rockets. The subject of this publication is quantitative experimental determination of the Reynolds flows and stresses in a Jet-in-Crossflow arrangement. The variables stated reflect turbulence-induced elevated mass transfer in a turbulent vis-a-vis a laminar flow and are thus intimately linked to mixing processes. Their experimental determination is of great importance for the generation and validation of numerical turbulence models. Simultaneous use of two laser-diagnosis methods, 2D LIF (Two-dimensional Laser-induced Fluorescence) and PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) makes it possible to establish 2D concentration and velocity fields simultaneously and determine the variables mentioned directly.

    Power electronics components with transient switching processes cause AC components in the HV on-board supply system, with current and voltage harmonics with frequencies in the two-digit MHz range. Depending on their length and design, the HV lines can act as effective antenna structures. It is already common to shield HV lines for better EMP but the shield should be continued also in the connected casings. Material characteristics must be considered for weight and cost optimisation. For this reason, shield attenuation dimensions are calculated for exemplary casings for the frequency ranges that are relevant in electromobility. Afater this, the intrinsic sheild attenuation values of three different materials are measured in the frequency range of 10 - 100 MHz, and their relevance for applications in electormobility is assessed. The coaxial HV lines differ from other coaxial lines in their system characteristics; coupling attenuation and transfer impedance are important characteristics. To measure these characteristics, measuring tools must be adapted to the concrete applications. The methodology and the identified characteristics are discussed in detail. [German] Baugruppen der Leistungselektronik mit transienten Schaltvorgaengen verursachen Wechselspannungsanteile im Hochvoltbordnetz, die Strom- und Spannungsoberschwingungen mit Frequenzauspraegungen bis in den zweistelligen MHz-Bereich zeigen. Die Hochvoltleitungen koennen dann abhaengig von Laenge und Ausfuehrung als effektive Antennenstrukturen agieren. Zur Einhaltung der elektromagnetischen Vertraeglichkeit, werden bereits Schirmungen der Hochvoltleitungen eingesetzt. Jedoch muss fuer eine effektive elektromagnetische Entkopplung die Schirmung auch in den angeschlossenen Gehaeusen konsequent weitergefuehrt werden. Hierbei sind materialspezifische Anforderungen zu beachten, die Gewichts- und Kostenoptimierungen unterliegen. Daher wird fuer die in der Elektromobilitaet relevanten Frequenzbereiche eine theoretische Abwaegung der erreichbaren Schirmdaempfungsmasse fuer exemplarische Gehaeuseabmessungen durchgefuehrt. Anschliessend werden die intrinsischen Schirmdaempfungswerte von drei unterschiedlichen Materialien im Frequenzbereich 10 MHz bis 100 MHz messtechnisch erfasst und die Relevanz fuer Anwendungen in der Elektromobilitaet bewertet. Die koaxial aufgebauten Hochvoltleitungen unterscheiden sich in ihrem Systemverhalten von anderen Leitungen mit koaxialem Design. Kopplungsdaempfung und Transferimpedanz sind wichtige Kenngroessen solcher Leitungen. Zur Bestimmung dieser Eigenschaften ist eine Anpassung der gaengigen Messtechnik auf den konkreten Anwendungsfall notwendig. Das entsprechende Vorgehen, sowie die ermittelten Eigenschaften werden im Folgenden naeher erlaeutert.

    The composite material steel fibre reinforced concrete or steel fibre reinforced sprayed concrete (SFRS) is widely used in geotechnics. For the modelling of the mechanical behaviour the knowledge of the distribution and orientation of the fibres in the concrete is of particular importance. For a bachelor thesis the steel fibres in drill cores were investigated by computed tomography (CT) at the Austrian Foundry Research Institute (ÖGI). The orientation of each fibre was calculated using a STL-interface and further software tools. The results were statistically evaluated and graphically represented using Schmidt\\'s net. This time consuming (expensive) method was automated by a post-processing of VRVis. With that tool the steel fibres in the sample can be explored, classified and visually examined in real-time regarding their orientation in two angles. Different possibilities of statistical evaluation can be implemented. A real-time direction sphere histogram (DSH), comparable to Schmidt\\'s net in 3D allows the user to recognise the distribution of orientations of the selected fibres at a glance. The colour-coding of the different orientations is also used for the 3D-volume-view of the fibres, to easily identify the spatial distribution of orientations in the SFRS sample. © 2011 Ernst & Sohn Verlag für Architektur und technische Wissenschaften GmbH & Co.

    Great hopes are placed in the concept of cogeneration of heat and power (HPC), with HPC viewed as the key technology in the achievement of the climate-protection targets of Kyoto. EU Directive 2004/08/EC [1] demands an HPC concept orientated around effective heat output needs, and mini-HPC systems offer great potential in this respect. The prime aim is that of enhancing energy efficiency and improving assuredness of supply. Germany, with eighteen million households connected to the natural gas supply, possesses good pre-conditions for increase of energy efficiency via the use mini-HPC systems, and various appliances in the low output range (up to 18 kW{sub el}) are already available on the market. Lacking up to now have, however, been HPC systems which are primarily suitable for use with a low energy consumption throughout the year in detached houses. Developments are at present being pursued with great urgency precisely in this segment of the market, however. A range of different concepts are being followed for the achievement of the so-called ''power-generating heating system''. Diverse concepts employing both gasoline and Stirling engines, steam-expansion engines and fuel cells are under development. (orig.)

    In this thesis the structure of the QCD vacuum and the nature of the chiral phase transition were studied by means of overlap fermions. The main topic of the theiss lies in the study of the infrared long-range aspects shown by the low-lying eigenmodes of the overlap operator. For the characterization of the structure and dimension of an arbitray density embedded in the four-dimensional space-time diverse analysis tools were developed. These are applied both at low temperature (T=0) in the valence-quark approximation of QCD and in the environment of the high-temperature phase transition of the full QCD for the description of the structure of the modes and the topological density, as well as for the analysis of the local self-duality of the basing gauge fields.

  13. Study of the mechanisms of heavy-ion induced desorption on accelerator-relevant materials; Untersuchung der Mechanismen schwerioneninduzierter Desorption an beschleunigerrelevanten Materialien

    The ion beam loss induced desorption is a performance limitation for low charge state heavy ion accelerators. If charge exchanged projectile ions get lost onto the beam pipe, desorption of gas is stimulated resulting in a pressure increase inside of the synchrotron and thus, a dramatically reduction of the beam life time. To minimize the amount of desorbed gas an experimental program has been started to measure the desorption yields (released gas molecules per incident ion) of various materials and different projectile ions. The present work is a contribution to the understanding of the physical processes behind the ion beam loss induced desorption. The yield measurements by the pressure rise method have been combined for the rst time with in situ ion beam analysis technologies such as ERDA and RBS. With this unique method the desorption behavior of a sample can be correlated to its surface and bulk properties. The performed experiments with 1,4 MeV/u Xenon-Ions show that the ion induced desorption is mainly a surface effect. Sputtered oxide layers or impurities do not contribute to the desorbed gas significantly. Nevertheless bulk properties play an important role in the desorption strength. Pure metallic samples desorb less gas than isolating materials under swift heavy ion irradiation. From the experimental results it was possible to estimate the desorption yields of various materials under ion bombardment by means of an extended inelastic thermal-spike-model. The extension is the combination of the thermal-spike's temperature map with thermal desorption. Within this model the ion induced desorption can be regarded as the release of adsorbates from a transient overheated spot on the samples surface around the ion impact. Finally a copper substrate with a gold coated surface was developed and proposed as a suitable material for a beam loss collimator with minimum desorption to ensure the performance of GSI's SIS18 in high current beam operation.

    The German Federal Government published its energy concept in September 2010 with a description of the road into the era of renewable energies. Therefore, the future renewable energy installed in Germany is expected to consist mostly of wind and solar, which are subject to intermittency of supply and significant fluctuations. The growing portion of energy generation by fluctuating sources is turning to a big challenge for the power plant unit commitment and the investment decisions as well. In this thesis, a fundamental electricity market model with combined modeling of these two aspects is developed. This model is subsequently applied to the German electricity market to investigate what kind of power plant investments are indispensable, considering the steadily increasing portion of energy generation from fluctuating sources, to ensure a reliable energy supply in a cost-effective way in the future. In addition, current energy policy in Germany regarding the use of renewable energy and nuclear energy is analyzed.

    The challenge of sustainable development in the coal mining industry consists of continuous guarantee of the aims of economic viability, security of supply, compatibility with the environment and social interests. Sustainable development of the coal industry is thus a complex large system, which consists of four partial systems, viz. economy, society, environment and resources of the coal fields. It is based on the coordinated development of these four partial systems. To investigate quantitatively the state of the coal industry in China and the future trends for its sustainable development, an evaluation indicator system consisting of target, criterion and indicator level was formulated in this contribution. According to the structure of the indicator system two evaluation models were developed, viz. fuzzy model based on the AHP method (AHP = Analytical Hierarchy Process) and a model with the aid of main component analysis. With regard to the historical data of the indicators the sustainable development of the coal industry in China was evaluated with the aid of the development models. (orig.)

    Wastes from three different types of waste treatment facilities (slag from a municipal waste incineration plant, slag granules from a pilot plant combining carbonization and incineration, mechanical and biological treated wastes) were examined to determine their hazard potential to different waters sites. The process temperature is seen to be the main difference between the three treatment processes. The wastes were extracted with water according to the German standard DIN 38414 S 4 and additionally at a constant pH value of 4. The leachates were investigated in a battery of aquatic bioassays and characterised physically and chemically. Every leachate revealed in a toxic effect at least in one test. The toxicity of the leachates prepared at a pH of 4 was significantly higher than the toxicity of the leachates prepared by extraction with water without pH adjustment. The leachates of the slag granules showed the lowest toxicity. On the basis of these experimental results, a scheme to derive Water Hazard Classes of wastes, which is presented in part II of this publication, was developed. (orig.) [German] Zur Bestimmung der wassergefaehrdenden Eigenschaften wurden die Eluate von Abfaellen/Rueckstaenden aus drei verschiedenen Abfallbehandlungsanlagen untersucht (Schlacke aus einer Abfallverbrennungsanlage (Rostfeuerung), Schmelzgranulat aus einer Versuchsanlage mit kombinierter Verschwelung und Hochtemperaturverbrennung sowie biologisch-mechanisch behandelter Abfall). Ein wesentlicher Unterschied dieser drei Verfahren liegt in der Behandlungstemperatur. Die Rueckstaende wurden nach DIN 38414, Teil 4 sowie bei einem konstant eingestellten pH-Wert von 4 eluiert. Die Eluate wurden mit verschiedenen aquatischen Biotests untersucht sowie physikalisch-chemisch charakterisiert. Dabei zeigte sich, dass jedes untersuchte Eluat in mindestens einem Test eine toxische Wirkung aufwies; die Toxizitaet der bei saurem pH-Wert durchgefuehrten Elutionen war deutlich erhoeht. Die Eluate des Schmelzgranulats wiesen insgesamt die geringsten Toxizitaeten auf. Aufbauend auf diesen Ergebnissen wurde ein Bewertungsschema zur Ableitung von Wassergefaehrdungsklassen (WGK) fuer Abfaelle entwickelt, das in Teil II dieser Veroeffentlichung vorgestellt wird.

  17. Simulation calculations for the positron annihilation in aluminium alloys for the study of the segregate formation; Simulationsrechnungen zur Positronenannihilation in Aluminiumlegierungen zur Untersuchung der Ausscheidungsbildung

    Highly solid aluminium alloys owe their properties to small, finely distributed segregations of alloy atoms. For the better understanding of the temperature treatment, which is required in order to control the segregate formation, it is important, to determine informations on the first early stages from few atoms. In the positron-annihilation spectroscopy (PAS) positrons are trapped in the vacancies of a solid and yield at their annihilation with surrounding electrons informations from their direct environment. because the formation of segregates requires a diffusion of the extraneous atoms by means of the vacancies, the PAS represents one of the few examination methods, by which already the formation of smallest segregations can be observed. By the comparison of measurement quantities of the PAS with simulations for different possible arrangements of extraneous atoms around the vacancy the atomic environment of the vacancy can be identified. In order to make this possible also in aluminium alloys, in which the number of the possible defect types is relatively large, a good description of the measurement values by the simulation is especially important. In the framework of this thesis the program AB2D was developed, by which the Doppler shift of the annihilation radiation can be determined. Contrarily to already existing approaches here valence-electron wave functions are used, which were calculated with the program ABINIT. By this way the main uncertainty by the description of the valence electrons in atomic superposition is cancelled. Because ABINIT is based on pseudopotentials, the projector augmented-wave method is used in order to describe the higher momenta of the electrons near the nuclei more realistically. With AB2D simulations for vacancy-extraneous-atom complexes and segregation phases in the alloy systems Al-Cu, Al-Mg-Cu, and Al-Mg-Si were performed. A comparison with measurements on samples, which were only few minutes stored at room temperature, showed thereby that the formation of first segregations in the environment of the vacancies runs very much faster than hitherto assumed.

    In this thesis the thermovoltage has been studied via a tunnel barrier under different aspects. Au(111) has been chosen as substrate. The mean free path of the electrons on the Au(111) surface was determined by a comparison of the standing waves on stage edges with the theoretical prediction. The measurements were performed at different temperatures. Detailed studies were performed on Au(111), Cu(111), and Cu(110) in order to examine the question whether the cause for strong signal on the stage edges lies in the surface state itself or in the band gap. The mani theme of this thesis is the study of a binary metal system, in this case silver on Au(111).

    The effect of nuclear radiation on the toxicity and the molecular structure of the toxin produced by the microorganism Clostridium botulinum type A was investigated. The radiation induced changes in the structure of the toxin molecule. This effect is influenced by the composition or the medium above the toxin solution as well as by the temperature during the irradiation. The results of the investigation indicate that with increasing irradiation dose a new molecule was formed with immunological properties similar to the properties of the original molecule however with a greater molecular weight. After exposure to a radiation dose of 3,4 Mrad at normal temperature in air, complete detoxification of the substance was found. Immunizing experiments with the toxoid with two guinea-pigs indicated a pronounced increase of the antibody titer in the serum after 4 weeks. Vaccination experiments with the toxoid on animals show, that the protection against the effect of the toxin corresponds to the demands of the European Pharmacopoeia. The efficiency of the toxoid shows a similar efficiency as toxoids produced by chemical methods. The production of a toxoid-viccine with the relatively simple method of nuclear radiation appears possible. (orig./MG) With 12 refs., 3 tabs., 11 figs.

    In the present thesis monocrystalline lithium fluoride samples were studies, which were treated earlier with high-energetic radiation. By means of the measurement of different parameters as F center concentration, correlation times {tau}{sub e} of the F centers and the spin-lattice relaxation time T{sub 1} it could be proved that ther relaxation caused by the paramagnetic F centers is constrained by the spin diffusion D{sub s}. Thereby it was simultaneously shown that by means of the NMR relaxation time statements on the dynamics and concentration of the F centers could be met. The temperature dependence of the correlation time of the F centers {tau}{sub e} exhibits at low concentrations a typical Raman behaviour, which shows at temperatures up to about 20 K a {tau}{sub e}{sup -1}{proportional_to}T{sup 9} dependence and for temperatures above it in a {tau}{sub e}{sup -1}{proportional_to}T{sup 2} dependence changes. By annealing measurements by means of the NMR the activation energies of the V{sub 3} centers and F centers for their diffusion motion could be determined. Thereby it was shown that the activation energy of the V{sub 3} center increases from E{sub A}=0.6 eV at a sample irradiated with 100 kGy to 1.0 eV at highly irradiated samples. The diffusion motion of the F center possesses an activation energy of 1.5 eV.

    In this work the electron dynamics at the PTCDA/Ag(111) interface have been studied with time- and angleresolved Two-photon photoemission (2PPE) as well as time-resolved photoluminescence (PL). The first part of this work concentrates on the characterization of an unoccupied electronic state, that develops 0.6 eV above the Fermi level due to the adsorption of the PTCDA molecules, whereas the shockley surface state of the clean surface vanishes. The measurements clearly identify this state as an interface state that is located between the metal surface and the first layer of the molecules. Dispersion measurements yield an effective mass of this state of 0.39 m{sub e} at the Gamma-point and show backfolding at the zone boundaries of the rectangular PTCDA unit cell. Time-resolved measurements show a surprisingly short lifetime of t=54 fs, clearly indicating a strong coupling of the state with the metal. This behaviour can be explained by a shift of the shockley surface state. This for the clean Ag(111)-surface normally occupied state shifts above the Fermi level because of the highly polarizable PTCDA molecules. Calculations with a one dimensional model potential support this interpretation. Angleresolved lifetime measurements as a function of parallel momentum show a correlation of the decay dynamics of the interface state with the measured bandstructure. The observed drop of the lifetime for larger parallel momentum is significantly smaller as expected for the pure shockley state. This behaviour can be explained due to a hybridisation of the shockley state with the LUMO+1 of the first PTCDA monolayer for k parallel >>0. The second part of this work deals with the intramolecular excitation at the PTCDA/Ag(111) interface after excitation with laser pulses with 2.33 eV and 4.66 eV photon energy. Time-resolved photoluminescence measurements show a strong rise in the PL-lifetime as a function of PTCDA coverage, that can be explained by an increase in the crystallinity of the PTCDA films. After excitation with 4.66 eV+4.66 eV the LUMO, LUMO+1 and the HOMO of the PTCDA multilayers can be identified by varying of the photon energy. The LUMO exhibits a stronger binding after resonant excitation with 2.33 eV, that is associated with the creation of an exciton. Time-resolved 2PPE measurements show a very long lifetime above the Fermi level that displays a multiexponentiel decay. Systematic measurements as a function of PTCDA coverage at 300 K and 85 K show a strong increase in the lifetime with a saturation above 100 ML, that can be clearly correlated to an intramolecular excitation. A Model in which the excited electrons in the PTCDA layers can get to metal surface by hopping processes is able to give a good qualitative description of the complex 2PPE-signal. (orig.)

    The intracranial pressure (ICP) is a crucially important parameter for diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making in patients with hydrocephalus. So far there is no standard method to non-invasively assess the ICP. Various approaches to obtain the ICP semi-invasively or non-invasively are discussed and the clinical application of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based method to estimate ICP (MR-ICP) is demonstrated in a group of pediatric patients with hydrocephalus. Arterial inflow, venous drainage and craniospinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow were quantified using phase-contrast imaging to derive the MR-ICP. A total of 15 patients with hydrocephalus (n=9 treated with shunt placement or ventriculostomy) underwent MRI on a 3 T scanner applying retrospectively-gated cine phase contrast sequences. Of the patients six had clinical symptoms indicating increased ICP (age 2.5-14.61 years, mean 7.4 years) and nine patients had no clinical signs of elevated ICP (age 2.1-15.9 years; mean 9.8 years; all treated with shunt or ventriculostomy). Median MR-ICP in symptomatic patients was 24.5 mmHg (25th percentile 20.4 mmHg; 75th percentile 44.6 mmHg). Median MR-ICP in patients without acute signs of increased ICP was 9.8 mmHg (25th percentile 8.6 mmHg; 75th percentile 11.4 mmHg). Group differences were significant (p < 0.001; Mann-Whitney U-test). The MR-ICP technique is a promising non-invasive tool for estimating ICP. Further studies in larger patient cohorts are warranted to investigate its application in children with hydrocephalus. (orig.) [German] Der intrakranielle Druck (''intracranial pressure'' - ICP) ist ein entscheidender Parameter bei der Diagnostik, Therapie und Verlaufsbeurteilung von Patienten mit Hydrozephalus. Derzeit gibt es keine radiologische Standardmethode, um den intrakraniellen Druck quantitativ zu bestimmen. Methoden zur invasiven und nichtinvasiven Einschaetzung des ICP werden diskutiert und die Anwendung eines MR-basierten Verfahrens (MR-ICP) bei Patienten mit Hydrozephalus vorgestellt. Der MR-ICP wird nichtinvasiv aus der intrakraniellen Volumenaenderung, die waehrend eines Herzzyklus entsteht, und dem kraniozervikalen Druckgradienten des Liquorflusses berechnet. Fuenfzehn Patienten mit Hydrozephalus, davon 6 (2,5-14,61 Jahre alt; Mittelwert 7,4 Jahre) mit Verdacht auf erhoehten ICP, und 9 ohne klinische Zeichen eines erhoehten ICP (2,1-15,9 Jahre alt; Mittelwert 9,8 Jahre) wurden an einem 3-T-MRT mittels Phasenkontrastangiographie untersucht. Der mediane MR-ICP der Patienten mit akuter Symptomatik lag bei 24,5 mmHg (25%-Perzentile 20,4 mmHg; 75%-Perzentile 44,5 mmHg). Der mediane MR-ICP der Patienten ohne akute Symptomatik war 9,8 mmHg (25%-Perzentile 8,6 mmHg; 75%-Perzentile 11,4 mmHg). Der Gruppenunterschied war signifikant (p <0,001; Mann-Whitney-U-Test). Der MR-ICP ist eine vielversprechende, nichtinvasive Methode zur Einschaetzung des ICP. Weitere Studien zur Evaluation der Anwendung bei verschiedenen klinischen Fragestellungen sind notwendig.

    Cuprate materials containing rare earth ions were studied. The main experimental tools were inelastic and elastic neutron scattering techniques. Some {mu}SR, susceptibility and specific heat measurements were also performed. One aim was to learn more about the crystalline environment of the rare earth ions in these substances via the crystalline electric field (CEF) interaction. Furthermore, we investigated the correlations of the magnetic moments of these ions by a determination of the dispersion of the CEF excitations. The theory that is essential for the understanding of this work is outlined. The instruments on which the experiments have been performed are presented. We show the measurements of the CEF excitations of Ho{sup 3+} in Y{sub 0.99}Ho{sub 0.01}Ba{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 6+x}. The Ho ions represent ideal local probes to examine changes of the charge distribution in the copper oxide planes upon doping with oxygen. To prevent any influence of the Ho-Ho exchange interaction on the CEF excitations we performed the experiments on substances containing only one percent of Ho. Our results show that for all the intermediately doped compounds the charge distribution is very inhomogeneous. For all the highly doped samples we observe a line asymmetry for which several possible origins are discussed. We examine the Pr{sup 3+} CEF excitations in the Pr{sub 2-x}Ce{sub x}CuO{sub 4(-{delta})} (0{<=}x{<=}0.2)-substances. Our results show a coexistence of different environments of the Pr ions in all the doped compounds. We try to describe these inhomogeneities with the help of a model. We used the {mu}SR-technique on some of these samples in order to learn more about the oxygen reduction process. Finally, we performed inelastic neutron scattering experiments on Pr{sub 1.86}Ce{sub 0.14}CuO{sub 4} single crystal, which allowed a direct determination of the coupling constants between the magnetic moments of the Pr ions.

    The largest electricity consumption in municipal sewage treatment plants occurs during biological treatment. This fact has been the motivation for a closer look at the electricity consumption of three biological treatment processes that will be applied more frequently in the future. The wastewater treatment plants in Lyss (Fixed Bed Biological Reactor), Wohlen (Moving Bed Biological Reactor), and Waedenswil (Membrane Biological Reactor submerged in an activated sludge process) provided the basis for this analysis, which was done both in absolute terms as well as in relation to each plant's loading. The specific energy consumption of the Fixed Bed Reactor, averaging 20 - 25 kWh/p.e. per annum (p.e. = person equivalent), is comparable to the one of a conventional activated sludge process (benchmark/standard value = 23 kWh/p.e. per annum; optimal value 18 kWh/p.e. per annum). The Moving Bed Reactor uses less than 30 kWh/p.e per annum when working at or close to full capacity, and more than 40 kWh/p.e. per annum at low fill. The Membrane Biological Reactor submerged in an activated sludge process shows the highest specific energy consumption values (> 40 kWh/p.e. per annum). In order to be able to run the biological treatment at optimal electricity consumption levels, the plants should be designed in such a way as to automatically run on partial or intermittent mode in times of low waste load. Further implementation of these new biological purification processes will lead to an increase in electricity consumption unless the significant energy savings potential wastewater treatment plants still offer is tapped. In order to be able to exploit this potential, electricity consumption has to be considered as of equal relevance as treated effluent quality. (author)

    In the 1940ies in Germany studies using uranium in different geometries were started. Using the isotope ration Th-230/U-234 it was possible to determine the materials used in 1949-1943.The geographic origin was determined from trace amounts of rare earths. The uranium used in German research projects came from Czech uranium mines. Traces of U-236 and Pu-236 were found corresponding to the normal occurrence. This fact indicates that no significant neutron irradiation has occurred.

    One of the main goals of nanomedicine is to improve the treatment of hazardous diseases whose conventional therapy often has serious side effects. The vision is to create a theranostic drug delivery system which is capable of safely transporting therapeutic cargo through the body to a targeted site of disease at which point the drug is released. Furthermore, it is desirable to track the carrier in real time which would allow for a personal adjustment of the therapy. Studies on the behavior of nanoparticulate substances in a physiological environment form the basis for the possibility to successfully develop a drug carrier system. In the present work, polymeric nanoparticles with different morphologies were prepared by the controlled self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers. The nanoparticles were subsequently characterized and their interactions with human cells and serum proteins investigated. A cytotoxicity study with spherical and cylindrical micelles as well as vesicular structures was carried out and showed a dependency of cytotoxic effects on the geometry and size of the nanoparticles. The agglomeration behavior of various polymeric nanoparticles in the presence of serum proteins was also studied. Highly uniform polymeric vesicles were continuously manufactured in a micromixer based device and in situ loading with different components was performed. In this way, dual loaded vesicles with the anticancer drug camptothecin and a high amount of hydrophobic iron oxide nanoparticles were produced. When tested in vitro, these drug-loaded vesicles showed an increased cytotoxic activity against the cancer cell line PC-3 when compared to the free drug. Specific cellular uptake in PC-3 cancer cells was demonstrated with flow cytometry and confocal laser scanning microscopy after functionalization with a cancer cell specific targeting peptide and an additional fluorescent label. Magnetic characterization of the iron oxide-loaded vesicles also confirmed the potential application as MRI contrast agents and as tracers for magnetic particle imaging (MPI). Continuously manufactured, drug-loaded, magnetic polymeric vesicles thus fulfill many prerequisites for a theranostic drug carrier system and provide opportunities for further developments in the field of magnetic fluid hyperthermia, magnetic targeting or magnetic drug release.

    Zinc-magnesium layers have been produced by a combination of conventional hot-dip galvanizing and PVD magnesium coating. A subsequent short heat treatment causes the diffusion of magnesium into the zinc layer. The influence of the maximum temperature of the heat treatment on the diffusion of magnesium and on the type and distribution of the formed intermetallic Mg-Zn phases has been examined in detail in a temperature range from 300 to 400 C by means of X-ray phase analyses and metallographic cross sections. With increasing temperature a sequential intermetallic Mg-Zn phase formation has been detected. At 300 C, an initial magnesium rich, intermetallic MgZn{sub 2} surface layer is formed, which, at higher temperatures from 335 to 379 C, is progressively transformed into a zinc rich Mg{sub 2}Zn{sub 11} layer by interdiffusion. In this context, the nucleation of the Mg{sub 2}Zn{sub 11} phase takes place on the interface between the MgZn{sub 2} and the Zn phase. Above the peritectic temperature of 381 C, the microstructure is composed of a zinc matrix in which precipitated MgZn{sub 2} is dispersed. (orig.)

    In order to describe and assess the element distribution and the trend of the pollution in sediments, particulate suspended matter and dissolved matter of the river Elbe more than 60 elements were determined in several sampling campaigns along the entire river during the nineties. By analyzing the resulting data with two- and multi-way principal components analysis geogenic and anthropogenically influenced elements were distinguished and typical longitudinal profiles concerning geogenic or anthropogenic characteristics were summarized. Sampling locations having similiar element distribution patterns were aggregated to characteristic Elbe sections by means of hierarchical cluster analysis. The temporal trend of the pollution within the different sections was quantified by comparing the mean concentrations of the anthropogenically influenced elements. Two- and Three-way PLS regression models were applied to predict element concentrations in one certain river compartment from measured concentrations in one or two different compartments. (orig.)

    The integrated series connection is an important and elementary part of a thin-film silicon solar module. The series connection leads to a reduction of Ohmic losses and an increase of the module voltage. After their deposition the different functional layers of a solar module must be patterned selectively to form a series connection. First the front contact, then the absorber, and finally the back contact is locally removed. The first step and the last step are needed to separate the contact layers (isolation step), the absorber patterning is used to expose the front contact and prepare the series interconnection. Usually laser ablation is used for patterning. The patterning of the front contact is overall a noncritical step. Therefore, this thesis exclusively investigates mechanisms that limit the process window of the absorber patterning and the back contact patterning. Especially for the absorber patterning on SnO{sub 2}-substrates the process window is very narrow. As too high pulse energies create a barrier layer on the SnO{sub 2}-window layer, which restricts the current flow in a series connected module. This barrier layer probably consists of SiO{sub 2} or an alloy of (Sn,Si)O{sub 2}. It arrises from redeposition of evaporated silicon. Ablation of the absorber without creating a barrier layer is only possible, when the silicon is not evaporated. Here the ablation is induced by the explosive out-diffusion of hydrogen from the silicon layer. On ZnO-substrates no significant barrier formation occurs. For this reason the process window is very broad. Patterning the back contact is the last isolation step. It is mainly restricted by an unavoidable deterioration of the absorber as well as a possible ablation of the window layer. The deterioration of the absorber in the vicinity of the patterning groove leads to parasitic dark currents for amorphous and for microcrystalline solar cells. The parasitic dark currents decrease the efficiency {eta} of a patterned module. The parasitic dark currents strongly depend on the pulse duration and the wavelength of the applied laser. In general, longer pulse durations lead to larger parasitic dark currents due to a larger heat affected zone. The absorption coefficient {alpha} of the absorber depends on the wavelength {lambda}. Wavelengths {lambda} of 1064 nm, 532 nm and 355 nm are used for the back contact patterning. The results for amorphous and for microcrystalline silicon solar cells differ a lot, when the wavelength is changed. In the case of amorphous solar cells shorter wavelengths lead to a decrease of the parasitic dark currents of several orders of magnitude. For a wavelength of {lambda} = 355nm the parasitic dark currents are negligible for all practical purposes. In contrast, the parasitic dark currents of microcrystalline solar cells change only slightly, when the wavelength is changed. The reason for this is the different absorption coefficient and the larger thickness of the microcrystalline absorber as compared to that of amorphous silicon. However, a wavelength of {lambda} = 355nm could not be applied for the back contact patterning, since the used window layer was completely removed by the laser pulse. The current-/voltage distribution in a cell stripe determines the ohmic losses in a solar module. A mathematical model will be developed, which can be used to calculate the current-/voltage distribution in a cell stripe. The model will be verified by means of Lock-In Thermography from real cell stripes. Additionally, the optimal cell widths for amorphous and microcrystalline solar cells will be calculated by means of the model. The optimal width is the width, where the sum of the ohmic losses and the area losses due to the series connection is minimized. To decrease the series connection losses in a solar module, an alternative series connection concept will be developed. The main component of this concept are point contacts between neighboring cell stripes in contrast to non-stop contacts in the usual series connection concept. Using the point contact concept a large fraction of the area lost by series connection can be saved. This leads to higher module efficiencies {eta}. Currently the patterning of the functional layers has to be performed between the deposition of the layers. Thus the deposition processes has to be interrupted. To avoid this disadvantage another alternative series connection concept will be developed. This concept allows for the patterning of all layers after the deposition. The fundamental function of the concept will be demonstrated. (orig.)

    In 1998, EU legislation initiated a liberalisation process among European energy markets. The process of market opening has significantly changed the functioning of the markets and the competition conditions of the energy sector. At the same time, the industry witnessed a surge of mergers and far-reaching changes in the structure of German electricity and natural gas markets occurred. Against this background, the doctoral thesis at hand surveys the merger activities in the energy sector as well as the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office during the first years of liberalisation. The study starts with a portrayal of the institutional framework of the German merger control regime and a survey of the relevant economic literature on horizontal and vertical mergers. Subsequent to the legal and theoretical considerations, the merger activities and the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office are investigated empirically. The data set is based on information taken from merger control files at the archive of the Federal Cartel Office in Bonn. It contains information on more than 250 merger cases and appendant decisions in the German natural gas and electricity sector put before the Federal Cartel Office between 1999 and 2003. In order to perform a statistical analysis, the information contained in the written decisions is transformed into variables. The data set is complemented by information on electricity and gas networks taken from external data sources. The empirical part of the study is divided into two parts: The aim of the first part is to investigate the integration strategies of energy utilities with respect to basic characteristics of the firms involved as well as structural factors of the markets affected by the respective mergers. In the descriptive section, key patterns of the integration strategies of the energy utilities can be identified. The results of the discrete choice analysis show that in addition to firm size of the potential targets market structure parameters and already existing supply relations between the merging firms are the key influencing factors to the integration strategy of the German upstream energy utilities. Additionally, the regression analysis reveals different integration strategies for the three most takeover-greedy energy utilities E.ON AG, RWE AG and EnBW AG. The second part focuses mainly on to what extent the decisions of the German Federal Cartel Office can be ''explained'' through knowledge identity identification of the firms engaged in the merger and observable market structure features. The regression results reflect the concerns of the German Federal Cartel Office against the integration strategies of the upstream electricity and gas firms. Features that indicate that the motive behind the partial acquisition is to secure strategically downstream sales relations feature prominently in the decisions of the cartel office. The relevance of competitive characteristics of the concerned markets, the relation between the merging firms as well as the degree of control achieved by the partial acquisition is identified. Here, especially competition and network characteristics of the gas markets involved play a crucial role for the decision-making process in the merger proceeding. (orig.)

    Cogeneration plants are nowadays operated according to the economic dictates of electricity remuneration (laid down in the Renewable Energy Law (EEG) for those fired with biogas and in the Cogeneration Law for those fired with natural gas). As yet, operators wishing to link the operation of cogeneration plants to the electricity price are given only rudimentary support, one example being the direct marketing option provided by the EEG. For this reason electricity production in cogeneration plants is usually heat-driven or, in the case of plants meeting EEG requirements, continuous or evenly distributed. However, if they are operated according to demand, and heat storages or biogas or sewage gas storages are used for this purpose, cogeneration plants can also contribute to an electricity supply system that is both stable and inexpensive. The purpose of the present model-base analysis was to investigate both from a business and an overall systemic viewpoint whether market-price driven operation offers advantages over classical heat-driven or continuous operation of cogeneration plants.

    Swirl flames tend under certain operating conditions to exhibit strong pressure oscillations known as 'thermo-acoustic oscillations'. In this thesis a non-premixed, globally lean swirl flame that was close to industrial gas turbine design, was investigated with phase-resolution over an oscillation cycle using different laser based measurement techniques. Microphone probes were used to characterize the acoustic behaviour of the flame. Measurement of the Laser induced fluorescence of the CH-radical provided information of the structure of the flame zone and of the varying position and intensity of the heat release rate. The velocity field was measured by 3D Laser Doppler Anemometry and analysed with phase resolution. For the first time spontaneous Laser Raman Scattering was applied phase-resolved in an oscillating swirl flame to gain quantitatively correlated information of the concentrations of the main species, the temperature and the mixture fraction. The results give for the first time a quantitative insight of the changes and interactions in an oscillating swirl flame during an oscillation cycle. The data are so far unique with respect to the quantity and quality of the measured data and are thus of high value for the validation of numerical simulation programs. (orig.)

    This report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) presents the results of a study made on the effects of different ways of evaluating the transmission fees for the use of electricity grids as foreseen in Swiss legislation on electricity market liberalisation. The study was made using enterprise data supplied by various distribution utilities. The sensitivity analysis made, with the capital costs of the grids as its kernel, is described. Four variants based on different combinations of basic assessment data and rates of interest are presented. The availability and quality of data is discussed, as is the large number of different utility types to be found in Switzerland. For the interpretation of the results of the study, two primary points of view are considered - that of the utility, focussed on future investments and their financing, and that of the consumer, focussed on pricing aspects. The report is concluded with recommendations on which models should be proposed for a future electricity market decree.

    Due to rotation (Coriolis forces) in a coolant channel a secondary flow is superimposed to the basic flow. This leads to a change in the local heat transfer over the surface of the coolant channel as well as a change in the overall value of the heat transfer. Also the pressure loss over the channel length will change by rotation. By means of computational fluid dynamics (Finite Element Method) it was achieved to figure out the interaction between changing fluid flow and heat transfer. To validate the results obtained by a numerical flow simulation, a new measurement technique was developed. A laser-two-focus velocimeter has been combined with a rotation prism which allows continued measurements in a rotating scaled up channel. (orig.) [German] Bedingt durch die Rotationsbewegung eines Kuehlkanals wird die Grundstroemung von einem Sekundaerwirbel ueberlagert (Corioliskraefte). Durch diese Einfluesse aendert sich sowohl der lokale Waermeuebergang ueber der Kanaloberflaeche als auch die globalen Waermeuebertragungsraten ueber dem gesamten Kanal. Ebenfalls aendert sich durch die Rotation der Druckverlust ueber der Kanallaenge. Durch eine numerische Stroemungssimulation (Finite-Element-Methode) war es moeglich, einen detaillierten Zusammenhang zwischen dem veraenderten Stroemungsverhalten und dem Waermeuebertragungsverhalten darzustellen. Um die numerisch gewonnenen Ergebnisse experimentell abzusichern, wurde eine neuartige Messtechnik entwickelt. Ein Laser-2-Fokus-Velozimeter wurde mit einem Bilddrehprisma kombiniert, und dies erlaubte eine kontinuierliche Messung in einem rotierenden vergroesserten Modellkanal. (orig.)

    Recent advances in the kinematic X-ray standing wave technique (KXSW) for the determination of the atomic coordinates and displacement parameters in nonperfect crystalline materials are described in this thesis. The methodology has been improved by considering three significant aspects: - the inclusion of weak multiple beam contributions - the excitation of secondary fluorescence in multiple-element samples - the influence of the crystal mosaicity on the fluorescence yield. The improvements allowed to successfully apply the method to investigate complex oxide materials of current interest for potential device applications. The thermally-induced interdiffusion of cobalt and manganese thin films on zinc oxide single crystals has been studied to determine which lattice sites are occupied preferentially. The data analysis revealed that after thermal diffusion the adsorbed atoms occupied zinc sites in the host lattice. The mean deviation of the cobalt atomic position from the zinc lattice site was comparable to the thermal displacement parameter of the zinc atoms. In the case of manganese a secondary phase was found on the surface. Measurements performed on LaSrMnO{sub 4} provided new insight concerning the rotation of the oxygen octahedron around the manganese atoms and the concomitant displacements of the strontium and lanthanum atoms. It was found that the oxygen octahedra are rotated around the [100]-direction by 4,5 . The measurements in transmission geometry performed on titanium dioxide (rutile) demonstrated that KXSW measurements in the Laue geometry is a viable technique. By performing KXSW under grazing-incidence conditions it is possible to achieve depth resolution. The results clearly show that the extended KXSW technique is a versatile method for characterizing complex material systems. (orig.)

    The Ruhr district, one of the most industrialized and most densely populated regions of Germany, is part of the Westphalian Bight. The potential natural vegetation of the Ruhrgebiet are loess beech forests (Milio-Fagetum), which are also common in other parts of the Westphalian Bight. However, a comparison of the beech forests of the Ruhrgebiet with the Milio-Fagetum stands of other areas of the Westphalian Bight shows distinct differences in floristic composition of the herb layer as well as in C/N ratio and heavy metal contents of the upper 4 cm of the mineral soil. The differences can only be explained by the former long lasting immission load of the Ruhrdistrict. (orig.).

    Expanded use of composite materials often requires a cutting process to reach the desired shape of the work piece. In conventional mechanical cutting technologies like milling remarcable tool wear has to be considered due to the containing glass fibers which have a tremendous abrasive effect on the tool teeth. Here the laser beam is an alternative 'tool'. With this investigations the knowledge about the parameters of laser beam cutting of composites which determine working quality was increased. Requirements for an optimal cutting process and fundamental correlations between process parameters and working quality are presented. In absence of suitable criterions to estimate the working quality of laser beam cut composite materials, a suggestion of a DIN 2310, Part 7, 'Thermal Cutting, Laser Beam Cutting of Composites' is presented.

    The present thesis deals with the spin of charge carriers confined in CdSe/ZnSe quantum dots (QDs) closely linked to the polarization of emitted photons. II-VI material systems can be adequately mixed with the B-group element manganese. Such semimagnetic nanostructures offer a number of characteristic optical and electronic features. This is caused by an exchange interaction between the spin of optically excited carriers and the 3d electrons of the Mn ions. Within the framework of this thesis addressing of well defined spin states was realized by optical excitation of charge carriers. The occupation of different spin states was detected by the degree of polarization of the emitted photoluminescence (PL) light. For that purpose different optical methods of time-resolved and time-integrated spectroscopy as well as investigations in magnetic fields were applied. (orig.)

    The gasoline direct injection engine is one of the most promising strategies today to reduce the fuel consumption and CO{sub 2}-emissions of spark-ignition engines. The commercial launch of that combustion system was possible only through the development of new optical measurement techniques, which have been a major contribution for understanding the basics of the combustion in a stratified mode. In terms of space and time, compared to the homogeneous approach, the air-fuel-ratio for a stratified mode may vary significantly. This fluctuation affects in a critical way the process of ignition and combustion. The knowledge of the air-fuel-ratio in the spark plug area both at time of ignition and in during the combustion is therefore critical for the development of this combustion system and it components. This paper presents the spark-emission spectroscopy as a non invasive optical technique for measuring the air-fuel-ratio {lambda} in the spark gap at time of ignition. (orig.)

    The topic of the present work is the conception of a Yttrium-90 radionuclide generator for nuclear medicine applications. Due to its physical properties Yttrium-90 is considered as one of the most useful nuclides for radiotherapeutic cancer treatment. The parent nuclide Strontium-90 is gained during reprocessing of fission products. Thus, the sustained availability of large quantities of Yttrium-90 is limited to a number of research facilities. A radionuclide generator provides an independent Yttrium-90 source and enhances the capacities for radiopharmaceutical research and biomedical applications. The present work focussed on the identification of appropriate column materials for the separation of Strontium and Yttrium. The results for two materials are reported: AnaLig {sup registered} Sr-01 and crystalline antimonic acid. Based on the mode of operation of the Technetium-99m generator the aim was to enable the construction of a compact, enclosed apparatus. The projected device comprises a reservoir for the eluant, the ion-exchange column, pipings and radiation shielding. Elution of Yttrium-90 could then be easily performed by connecting evacuated vials to the outlet tube. The prospected concept involves physical and chemical confinements that exclude most of the known processes for Strontium-Yttrium separation. For example no ligands, no oxidizing reactants (e.g. nitric acid) and no organic solvents are to be used, but small volumes of isotonic or buffer solutions and dilute acids respectively. AnaLig {sup registered} Sr-01 is a commercially available resin used in extraction chromatography. Its high selectivity for Strontium cations results from the strictly defined cavity of the imbedded cryptand. Determination of weight distribution coefficients, elution studies and pre-generator experiments were carried out. Quantitative separation of Yttrium from Strontium and Zirconium is possible using small volumes of 0,05 M hydrochloric acid as eluant. Furthermore, high flow rates were achieved. The low acid concentration of the eluate is advantageous for its further processing with biomolecules. In a pre-generator experiment a small Strontium breakthrough was observed. However, the required separation factors of 10{sup 6} can be achieved by combining two columns in a row. All obtained results indicate AnaLig {sup registered} Sr-01 to be the optimum choice as a column material in a Strontium/Yttrium-90 generator. As no strong radiation source was available the effect of high doses on the material could not be examined. The activities needed for therapeutic purposes exceeding those of diagnostic applications by several orders of magnitude all materials in an Yttrium-90 generator have to sustain high radiation doses. Thus, radiation stability is the crucial aspect of a prospected column material. Due to its complex structure of covalent bonds AnaLig {sup registered} Sr-01 is to be estimated as extremely susceptible to radiation damage. Utilization of AnaLig {sup registered} Sr-01 would imply deviating from the initial concept. If Strontium-90 is removed from the column and stored in a reservoir after each elution of Yttrium-90 the exposure time of the resin would be minimized. In this case the system would require additional reservoirs, branched tubings, radioactive waste containers and peristaltic pumps. However, implementation of the radionuclide generator as an enclosed, low-maintenance apparatus is hardly feasible. Since inorganic materials exhibit much higher radiolytic stability than organic extractants, further investigations concentrated on an inorganic ion exchanger. Crystalline antimonic acid is well known for its high selectivity and capacity for Strontium cations. Crystalline antimonic acid was prepared through hydrolysis of antimony pentachloride and further treatment of the precipitate. Using radioactive Antimony-125 as an internal standard enables non-destructive analysis of chemical characteristics such as solubility and column bleeding. As in the case of AnaLig {sup registered} Sr-01, hydrochloric acid was chosen as eluant. In batch experiments 1 M hydrochloric acid was determined as appropriate eluant: Under these conditions the adsorption of Strontium and Zirconium on crystalline antimonic acid is quantitative while Yttrium is very slightly adsorbed and can be eluted. However, transfering the results from batch experiments to column studies was not possible: periodic elution of a column loaded with Strontium-90/Yttrium-90 results in less than 1% of the expected yield of Yttrium-90. This discrepancy was assumed to be caused by changes in crystal structure due to the continuous contact with the eluant. For example, the loss of water of crystallization would result in a contraction of the cavities obstracting the mobility of smaller cations. To further investigate possible aging processes different samples of crystalline antimonic acid were prepared through suspension and re-crystallization respectively. The comparison of X-ray data and weight distribution coefficients of the samples was expected to facilitate correlation between water content and ion exchange behavior. The changes in lattice parameters and cation selectivity caused by different kinds of treatment are contradictory, though. In addition to aging processes another possible influence was discussed: in batch experiments solvated Yttrium cations were brought into contact with crystalline antimonic acid whereas in the column experiment Yttrium-90 ions originates from the decay of Strontium-90 nuclei trapped within the lattice. However, according to ion exchange theory no such deviance should arise from different initial conditions. Because of its unsteady ion exchange properties in elution studies the use of crystalline antimonic acid in an Yttrium-90 generator is not possible.

    The corrosion fatigue behaviour of three stainless steels - ferritic (12% Cr), austenitic (type 316 Ti) and austenitic-ferritic (type 31803; Duplex stainless steel) - was studied under rotating bending moments in aqueous sulphuric acid of 30deg C. An instrumental set-up for recording the transient currents of specimens during potentiostatically controlled corrosion fatigue is described. Based on this transient current signal technique, three stages on the corrosion fatigue process can be discerned. In the incubation period, small stochastic current transients are caused by the response of the passive layer to alternating stresses and environmental conditions. The appearance of sinusoidal current signals indicates crack initiation whereas the phase angle between a fixed marker - i.e. a light barrier signal -, and the anodic amplitude represents the site of initiating cracks. Finally, the crack growth period is characterized by an increasing cell current and steadily growing sinusoidal current signals caused by the interplay of microplastic and repassivation processes at the crack tip.

    The Ladstattschacht is a 47 m deep cave shaft in the Schwarzwasser valley (state of Vorarlberg, Austrian Alps) that was completely filled up with waste from private and communal sewage plants until 1975. A multi tracing experiment using three different fluorescent tracers was carried out in order to evaluate the risk potential of this waste site. The organic shaft fill itself, a pothole nearby the Ladstattschacht and an active swallow hole served as injection points. It could be demonstrated that all karstic springs in the Schwarzwasser valley are affected by seepage water from this waste site. Comparison of breakthrough curves allowed to determine retardation processes in the shaft fill and the unsaturated zone and to characterize the karst groundwater flow system. (orig.)

    In 21 horses with the anamnesis backproblems there had been a clinical, scan- and X-ray-examination of the thoracal and lumbar vertebra in special consideration of the spinosus process and the dorsal intervertebral joint. But there was not always a relation between the clinical signs and X-rays or scan results. Not all positive X-rays found their corresponding scan activity and not all scan activities took place in X-rays.

    The piezo-force microscopy (PFM) allows the mapping of ferroelectric domains until the nanometer range. In spite of its simple function principle it was hitherto not completely understood. In ordser to develop the PFM further to a quantitative analysis method its methodical aspects were analyzed. It was shown that the fundamental mapping mechanism is based on the inverse piezo-effect. Different artefacts to be found in the literature could therefore be reduced to a measurement background. Furthermore the influence of the electrode geometry was analyzed. The width of doamin walls was systematically measured and simulated with a mode, whereby a maximal resolution of 17 nm was reached. By the development of a correction procedure for the exact detection of the forces acting on the spring-beam the lateral signals measured on domain walls could by newly interpreted. So the ''Lateral Electrostatic Force Microscopy'' was developed.

    In 1998, EU legislation initiated a liberalisation process among European energy markets. The process of market opening has significantly changed the functioning of the markets and the competition conditions of the energy sector. At the same time, the industry witnessed a surge of mergers and far-reaching changes in the structure of German electricity and natural gas markets occurred. Against this background, the doctoral thesis at hand surveys the merger activities in the energy sector as well as the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office during the first years of liberalisation. The study starts with a portrayal of the institutional framework of the German merger control regime and a survey of the relevant economic literature on horizontal and vertical mergers. Subsequent to the legal and theoretical considerations, the merger activities and the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office are investigated empirically. The data set is based on information taken from merger control files at the archive of the Federal Cartel Office in Bonn. It contains information on more than 250 merger cases and appendant decisions in the German natural gas and electricity sector put before the Federal Cartel Office between 1999 and 2003. In order to perform a statistical analysis, the information contained in the written decisions is transformed into variables. The data set is complemented by information on electricity and gas networks taken from external data sources. The empirical part of the study is divided into two parts: The aim of the first part is to investigate the integration strategies of energy utilities with respect to basic characteristics of the firms involved as well as structural factors of the markets affected by the respective mergers. In the descriptive section, key patterns of the integration strategies of the energy utilities can be identified. The results of the discrete choice analysis show that in addition to firm size of the potential targets market structure parameters and already existing supply relations between the merging firms are the key influencing factors to the integration strategy of the German upstream energy utilities. Additionally, the regression analysis reveals different integration strategies for the three most takeover-greedy energy utilities E.ON AG, RWE AG and EnBW AG. The second part focuses mainly on to what extent the decisions of the German Federal Cartel Office can be ''explained'' through knowledge identity identification of the firms engaged in the merger and observable market structure features. The regression results reflect the concerns of the German Federal Cartel Office against the integration strategies of the upstream electricity and gas firms. Features that indicate that the motive behind the partial acquisition is to secure strategically downstream sales relations feature prominently in the decisions of the cartel office. The relevance of competitive characteristics of the concerned markets, the relation between the merging firms as well as the degree of control achieved by the partial acquisition is identified. Here, especially competition and network characteristics of the gas markets involved play a crucial role for the decision-making process in the merger proceeding. (orig.)

    In order to do justice to the principle laid down in the Waste Management Technical Code that wastes disposed of underground in salt rock formations should remain clear of the biosphere for an indefinite time and without the need for later remedial measures and in order to realise the concept of so-called pollution-free disposal (mainly in non-saline formations) it is necessary to have verified knowledge on the types of waste concerned, the geological and hydrogeological conditions at the disposal site and in its surroundings, and on the future development of the entire disposal system. The long-term safety of a disposal site (or that of any kind of underground disposal of materials) depends on whether water or aqueous solutions can act on the host rock or on the wastes deposited in it, the extent to which this can result in dissolving processes and/or contaminant mobilisation and, finally, on whether this can conceivably lead to an impairment of the intended barriers and to a disposal of contaminants in the nearer or farther surroundings of the underground disposal site. This means in particular that the wastes themselves and their reactivity with fluid components in geological systems must be well-known or else examined and duly assessed. The following final report therefore is intended as a contribution to creating the requisite database for types of waste relevant to underground disposal. It has been possible here to collect important information on arising waste quantities and critical waste constituents and assess their hazard potential and so provide a basis for further research and development work. (orig./SR) [Deutsch] Der in der TA Abfall formulierte Grundsatz, bei der Ablagerung von Abfaellen in untertaegigen Anlagen im Salzgestein die Abfaelle dauerhaft und nachsorgefrei von der Biosphaere fernzuhalten, wie auch die Realisierung des Konzeptes der sog. immissionsneutralen Ablagerung (vornehmlich in nichtsalinaren Formationen) erfordern gesicherte Kenntnisse ueber den Abfall selbst, die geologisch-hydrogeologischen Verhaeltnisse des Deponieraumes und seiner Umgebung sowie der zukuenftigen Entwicklung des gesamten Deponiesystems. Die Langzeitsicherheit jeder Untertagedeponie (sinngemaess auch jeder sonstigen untertaegigen Verbringung von Stoffen) ist dabei in erster Linie davon abhaengig, ob auf das Wirtsgestein und dei darin abgelagerten Abfaelle Wasser oder waessrige Loesungen einwirken koennen, in welchem Umfang dadurch Umloeseprozesse und/oder eine Schadstoffmobilisierung resultieren koennen und letztlich, ob Beeintraechtigungen der Barrieren sowie eine Ausbreitung von Schadstoffen in der naeheren und weiteren Umgebung einer Untertagedeponie moeglich sind. Hierzu muessen insbesondere die Abfaelle selbst sowie deren Reaktionsvermoegen mit fluiden Komponenten in geologischen Systemen bekannt sein und erforderlichenfalls untersucht und bewertet werden. Der vorliegende Abschlussbericht ist in diesem Zusammenhang als Beitrag zur Schaffung der notwendigen Datenbasis fuer UTD-relevante Abfallarten ausgerichtet. Damit konnten wichtige Aussagen zum Abfallaufkommen selbst und den zu beruecksichtigenden Abfallinhaltsstoffen ermittelt, wie auch eine Abschaetzung deren Gefaehrdungspotentials vorgenommen werden und als Grundlage fuer weiterfuehrende Forschungs- und Entwicklungsarbeiten dienen.

    In what way and to what extent does an event like the Chernobyl reactor accident influence the citizen's attitudes and political commitment. This book evolves a number of theses on these questions dealing above all with the determinants of political protest. Two investigations are presented in order to verify those theses: in 1982 and 1987 (some nine months after the Chernobyl reactor accident), the same persons were interviewed. In addition, representative surveys in the Federal Republic of Germany are analysed, in order to assess in general the impact of Chernobyl. From the contents: explanation model for political protest; Chernobyl effect: effect of critical events on the mobilization of political protest; discontent with nuclear energy use, political alienation and protest; internal incentives for protest: norms, readiness for aggression, and entertainment quality of protest; resources as determinants of political protest; sanctions and protest; social nets and political protest; verification of a central model of political protest, and problems encountered by research. Appendix: investigation plan and random sampling of the panel of nuclear power opponents. (orig./HP).

    Fermentation residues are by-products of the biogas process. Farmers use them as fertilizers, but as the size of biogas plants grows, so does the residues volume. It is now too much for local use, and transport to other sites is expensive. Fuel pellets production may be an alternative. Pellets from fermentation residues are not accepted as yet because too little is known about their characteristics. The contribution describes an investigation that intends to identify the fuel characteristics of pellets from fermentation residues. (orig.)

    Attempting to counteract the consequences of climate change, leading industrial nations have agreed on reducing their CO{sub 2} emissions significantly. To reach these reduction goals, it is essential to reduce the CO{sub 2} emissions in the field of energy conversion. This PHD thesis covers the field of chemical looping combustion, a technology that uses fossil fuels for energy conversion with inherent capture of CO{sub 2}. Since the research regarding chemical looping had so far focused mainly on lab scale or small scale experiments, a 1 MW pilot plant has been erected at Technische Universitaet Darmstadt in order to investigate the process in a semi-industrial scale and to check the process efficiency with commercially usable equipment. This pilot consists of two interconnected fluidized bed reactors and has an overall height of more than 11 m. In this thesis, some experiments with ilmenite - used as the oxygen carrier - are explained. Furthermore, the design, erection and commissioning of the pilot plant are presented as well as the results of the first test campaigns. The evaluation of the latter proves that the process can be handled in the design configuration and that CO{sub 2} can be safely captured in a pilot plant of this scale.

    During my PhD thesis I investigated alkaline dimers with coherent control in a molecular beam as well as with pump-probe spectroscopy in a magneto-optical trap (MOT). The aim of the coherent control experiments were the isotope selective ionization with phase- and amplitude-shaped fs-pulses. Chapter 4 described the gained results of isotope selective ionization of NaK and KRb in a molecular beam by using different pulse formers. For the NaK dimer was the reached optimization factor R{sub Ph} and {sub Ampl}{sup 770}=R{sub max}/R{sub min}=25 between maximization and minimization of the isotopomer ratio ({sup 23}Na{sup 39}K){sup +}/({sup 23}Na{sup 41}K){sup +} with phase and amplitude modulation of the fs-pulse with a central wavelength of {lambda}=770 nm. From the electronic ground-state X(1){sup 1}{sigma}{sup +};{nu}''=0 transfers a one-photon-excitation population in the first excited A(2) {sup 1}{sigma}{sup +} state. The coherent control experiment on KRb was used to maximize and minimize the isotopomer ratio ({sup 124}KRb){sup +}/({sup 126}KRb){sup +}. It was the first coherent control experiment with a spectral resolution of 1.84 cm{sup -1}/Pixel. For the phase and amplitude optimization was the received optimization factor between minimization and maximization of the isotopomer ratio R{sub Ph} and {sub Ampl}=R{sub max}/R{sub min}=7 at a central wavelength of 840 nm. The results showed a stepwise excitation process from the electronic ground-state in the first excited (2){sup 1}{sigma}{sup +} state with a further excitation, that is possible over three resonant energy potential curves into the ionic ground-state. In the second part of my thesis I realized pump-probe spectroscopy of Rb{sub 2} dimers in a dark SPOT. (orig.)

    This study investigates into the extent to which fine osseous structures in the head of the femur and hyaline cartilaginous surfaces of the hip joint are accessible to X-ray computed tomography as a method of diagnosis. At first, a true model of the femural head (post-mortem preparation embedded in methylacrylate) was tomographed to compare the sectional displays thus obtained with hard-microtome sections of similar thickness made at the same levels. This permitted preliminary evaluations to be carried out and confirmed that those structures can be visualised by high-resolution CT (1 mm sections). Methods using high-resolution sectional imaging have a role in examinations of congruence in the the hip joint. Particularly useful here are three-dimensional displays of osseous and cartilaginous surfaces of the joint parts examined. Further research is needed until a more refined method of reconstruction can be made available, the usefulness of which in actual practice will depend on the degree of geometrical congruence achieved between a patient's joint and its display on the screen.

  5. Time-resolved measurements of laser-induced diffusion of CO molecules on stepped Pt(111)-surfaces; Zeitaufgeloeste Untersuchung der laser-induzierten Diffusion von CO-Molekuelen auf gestuften Pt(111)-Oberflaechen

    In the present work the dynamics of CO-molecules on a stepped Pt(111)-surface induced by fs-laser pulses at low temperatures was studied by using laser spectroscopy. In the first part of the work, the laser-induced diffusion for the CO/Pt(111)-system could be demonstrated and modelled successfully for step diffusion. At first, the diffusion of CO-molecules from the step sites to the terrace sites on the surface was traced. The experimentally discovered energy transfer time of 500 fs for this process confirms the assumption of an electronically induced process. In the following it was explained how the experimental results were modelled. A friction coefficient which depends on the electron temperature yields a consistent model, whereas for the understanding of the fluence dependence and time-resolved measurements parallel the same set of parameters was used. Furthermore, the analysis was extended to the CO-terrace diffusion. Small coverages of CO were adsorbed to the terraces and the diffusion was detected as the temporal evolution of the occupation of the step sites acting as traps for the diffusing molecules. The additional performed two-pulse correlation measurements also indicate an electronically induced process. At the substrate temperature of 40 K the cross-correlation - where an energy transfer time of 1.8 ps was extracted - suggests also an electronically induced energy transfer mechanism. Diffusion experiments were performed for different substrate temperatures. (orig.)

    To determine pulmonary features of collagenous vascular diseases as assessed by high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) we performed a prospective study of 73 consecutive patients, 44 with rheumatoid arthritis (ra), 11 with progressive systemic sclerosis (pss), 8 with systemic lupus erythematosus (sle), 5 with sjoegren's syndrome, 3 with dermato-/polymyositis and 2 with mixed connective-tissue disease. Pathological lung changes were demonstrated in 70% of patients with ra, 91% with pss, 63% with sle and 60% with the rest. HRCT features included: Intralobular thickening (48%) with a predominance in posterior lower and middle lung areas, pleural thickening (48%) with a predominance in upper lung areas, prominent interlobular septa (37%), subpleural lines (33%), parenchymal bands (33%) with a predominance in lower and anterior lung areas, honeycombing (33%), groundglass pattern (29%) with a predominance in upper and middle, micronodules (18%) with a predominance in upper lung areas and bronchiectasis (14%). HRCT is an important means for the assessment of lung changes associated with collagenous vascular diseases and a definite diagnosis is possible in most cases. (orig.)

    2011-07-01

    This publication shows how throughout Europe the process of market liberalisation in the railway sector is currently going through a decisive phase. In contrast to other network industries, especially in the telecommunication and energy sectors, the liberalisation of the railway sector is still in its beginnings. These network industries underwent full privatisation of what were formerly state monopolies. This gave rise to services markets operating in a competitive environment, the most impressive example of which is the telecommunications sector. Compared with its other forms the concept of separating ownership of a network from that of its operation, also referred to as ownership unbundling, is the most radical form of unbundling. This is not the least reason why it is one of the most controversial procedures for privatising vertically integrated network monopolies. There are sufficient practical examples and theories of economic competition to motivate a study of this model from the perspective of European law. This provides the backdrop to the present study, which investigates how a consistent implementation of unbundling stipulations can contribute to the realisation of a single European market, which is the original motive and purpose of liberalisation. It inquires in particular into the degree to which, compared with other models, ownership unbundling can be regarded as particularly suitable if not as the only structural model suitable for this purpose.

    Even shortly after World War II, as large amounts of ultrapure rare earths (RE) became available for scientific research, a large reservoir of peculiar phenomena was uncovered. These had not been investigated before or were completely unknown. Examples of these phenomena are, magnetic ordering, the KONDO effect, quantum critical points, heavy fermion behaviour, as well as superconductivity. A strong influence of small variations of the chemical composition on the physical properties had been observed. The main focus of the present thesis is the detailed elucidation of the crystal structure of fundamental representatives of this class of substances, as well as the influence of dedicated variations of the chemical composition on their structure and properties. In particular, the characterisation of modulated crystals is an important facet. A large spectrum of physical methods, especially X-ray diffraction, is employed in the investigations. Results on oriented intergrowth in the Y-Ni-B-C system, incommensurately ordered vacancies in the Ce-Si system, incorporation of stacking faults as well as commensurately ordered transition metal atoms (TM) in the RE-TM-Si system and site specific occupancy in the Y-Mn-Fe-O system are presented. Their elucidation is reported for the first time. It is shown which consequences the structural peculiarities will have on the physical properties. An objective of this thesis is to give an overview of the possible ''answers'' that can be obtained with regard to the influence of the crystal structure of rare earth transition metal compounds on deviations of the chemical composition.

    The author of the book under consideration reports on a cross-sectoral analysis of network management of energy, telecommunications and railways with regard to incentive regulation. The cross-sectoral analysis of incentive regulation requires a systematization of the instrument of payment regulation. Using the example of the incentive regulation, the author provides a rather jurisprudential contribution to a network management dogma.

    Beryllium, carbon and tungsten are planned to be used as first wall materials in the future fusion reactor ITER. The aim of this work is a characterization of mixed material formation induced by thermal load. To this end, model systems (layers) were prepared and investigated, which give insight into the basic physical and chemical concepts. Before investigating ternary systems, the first step was to analyze the binary systems Be/C and Be/W (bottom-up approach), where the differences between the substrates PG (pyrolytic graphite) and HOPG (highly oriented pyrolytic graphite) were of special interest. Particularly X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), low energy ion scattering (ISS) and Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy (RBS) were used as analysis methods. Beryllium evaporated on carbon shows an island growth mode, whereas a closed layer can be assumed for layer thicknesses above 0.7 nm. Annealing of the Be/C system induces Be{sub 2}C island formation for T{>=}770 K. At high temperatures (T{>=}1170 K), beryllium carbide dissociates, resulting in (metallic) beryllium desorption. For HOPG, carbide formation starts at higher temperatures compared to PG. Activation energies for the diffusion processes were determined by analyzing the decreasing beryllium amount versus annealing time. Surface morphologies were characterized using angle-resolved XPS (ARXPS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Experiments were performed to study processes in the Be/W system in the temperature range from 570 to 1270 K. Be{sub 2}W formation starts at 670 K, a complete loss of Be{sub 2}W is observed at 1170 K due to dissociation (and subsequent beryllium desorption). Regarding ternary systems, particularly Be/C/W and C/Be/W were investigated, attaching importance to layer thickness (reservoir) variations. At room temperature, Be{sub 2}C, W{sub 2}C, WC and Be{sub 2}W formation at the respective interfaces was observed. Further Be{sub 2}C is forming with increasing annealing temperatures. Depending on the layer sequence, carbide formation is complete in the temperature range between 570 and 770 K. Be{sub 2}W alloy formation only takes place if further metallic beryllium is available after carbide formation. Be{sub 2}C and Be{sub 2}W dissociate at temperatures T>1170 K. Based on RBS analysis of C/Be/W systems of several 100 nm thickness, the concentration dependent diffusion coefficient for Be in W was determined. Only Be{sub 12}W formation was observed due to the large beryllium reservoir. Carbide formation (Be{sub 2}C) is not observed until the alloy formation is completed. Furthermore, the first successful depth-resolved XPS measurements were performed on ternary layer systems using synchrotron radiation. The reactions in the ternary system are restricted to compounds that are already known from binary system investigations. No further Be, C, W-containing species are detected. Beryllium carbide is dominant in the system as long as it does not dissociate. (orig.)

    In the present work the cathode region of a mercury-free helium-xenon low pressure discharge in spot mode was experimentally investigated. Due to the emission of electrons, the production of ions and metastable atoms as well as lifetime limiting processes the cathode region is of particular interest. To implement a discharge in spot mode a novel planar mesh electrode was developed and used as cathode. Applying the space resolved laser-atom-absorption-spectroscopy method (LAAS) the absolute particle densities of the two lowest excited xenon atoms and the gas temperature in the cathode region were determined, whereas the strong spot plasma inhomogeneity was considered. Both the excited xenon particle density and the gas temperature strongly decrease in radial and axial direction. Particularly the gas temperature has a value of about 650 K in a 1mm cathode distance and does clearly exceed room temperature. Furthermore the spectrum of the hot spot on the cathode surface was detected by means of optical emission spectroscopy. From this spectrum the temperature distribution of the cathode spot was obtained by fitting Planck's law. The temperature distribution shows a distinct maximum, which in dependence of the discharge current reaches values of 1414 K at 40 mA and 1524 K at 80 mA. From that maximum a steep direction-independent temperature decrease was obtained. A technological important aspect concerning the lifetime of a xenon based mercury-free discharge lamp is the problematic effect of the xenon gas consumption. In this work it is shown that in contrary to an industrial made standard cup electrode, which is broadly used in light advertising lamps, the gas consumption is negligible when applying the novel planar mesh electrode. This reduction of gas consumption is due to the generation of a hot spot along with high cathode temperature and low cathode fall voltage. (orig.)

    Is there an effective liability for environmental damage? The sinking of the tanker ''Exxon Valdez'' has brought about an innovation in US environmental law. The dying of large areas of great forest and the Sandoz case have inspired thought in Germany. Who is responsible for the damages already incurred? How are damages to be replaced? Can environmental damage be quantified? For the replacement of damages, legal liability systems have been created, which are primarily of civil law, the compensation of damages between two private parties. In Germany there is a public liability system, which places the party ''generality'' against the operator of plants as an opponent and demands compensation, restoration of natural species and habitats, water bodies and soils. In 2004, the Directive on environmental liability with regard to the prevention and remedying of environmental damage (the Environmental Liability Directive or UHRL), was adopted. In Germany, the appropriate implementation took place in 2007 with the Environmental Damages Act (USchadG). A comparison with US environmental legislation and an overview of the implementation of the Environmental Liability Directive in the Member States completes the study. Julia-Carolina Holz gives a detailed look at the fundamentals and research status of enforcement deficits and examines the enforcement of the Environmental Liability Directive as well as the Environmental Damages Act.

    The study analyses the methodological problems of monetary evaluations of complex environmental damages by treating an actual example, the monetary evaluation of the present and further expectable forest damages in the Federal Republic of Germany. The state of the forest ecosystems, which can be expected under different plausible assumptions with respect to emissions and immissions of important air contaminants like SO/sub 2/ and NO/sub x/, is established by using expert surveys and scenario-techniques. The monetary consequences of different states of the forest system (status-quo-scenario: air pollution of the beginning 80ies continues; trend-scenario: strong, but possible reductions of SO/sub 2/ and NO/sub x/ emissions during the simulation period; reference-scenario: development path as if no air pollution existed) are estimated for three fields (timber production, recreation and tourism, water and soil protection) and for a period of 77 years (1984 to 2060).

    The extension of the German high voltage power grid has recently caused intense resistance in the affected regions. Publicly visible protests are mainly organised by citizen action groups. These groups act from the position of the periphery of the political system. Hence, they need to communicate their concerns and aims in order to influence the political and administrative decision-making system. In general they have the option to gain access to the mass media agenda. In addition protest groups can also create own media products (from leaflets to social media represenations). The theoretical points of departure of this study are social movement theories and the theory of the public sphere. An inclusive theoretical model, explaining the choice of protest repertories by citizen action groups, is developed. Furthermore, eight comprehensive case studies of citizen action groups in the conflict field of the extension of the German high voltage power grid were conducted. The results of the case studies reveal that the citizen action groups act strategically. They observe and assess the political and mass-mediated discourses and respectively develop their own frames. Although critical and sceptical towards the institutional practices and the actions of political representatives, the political system is perceived as legitimate and remains the main addressee. In addition, the mass media system is in general accepted, even though a (at least partially deliberate) negative bias and sometimes oven hostility against their own position is perceived. The creation of alternative media products is not a mere reaction with regard to the perceived mass media bias. It can be better understood as a result of the integration of the protest groups in local and regional communication structures (neighbourhoods, hobby networks, professional networks etc.). The study closes with recommendations for the improvement of consultation processes in the field of infrastructure protests.

  18. Investigation of carrier density and mobility in microcrystalline silicon alloys using Hall effect and thermopower measurements; Untersuchung der Ladungstraegerkonzentration und -beweglichkeit in mikrokristallinen Siliziumlegierungen mit Hall-Effekt und Thermokraft

    The electronic properties of amorphous and microcrystalline silicon layers in thin-film solar cells significantly affect the efficiency of solar cells. An important property of the individual layer is the electronic transport, which is described by the variables conductivity, photoconductivity, mobility, and carrier concentration. In the past, individual characterization methods were typically used to determine the electronic properties. Using the combination of Hall effect, conductivity, and thermoelectric power measurements additional variables can be derived, such as the effective density of states at the valence and conduction band edge, making a more detailed description of the material possible. To systematically study the electronic properties - in particular carrier mobility and carrier concentration - various series of silicon films are prepared for this work including microcrystalline silicon layers of different doping and crystallinity and a series of silicon films where the Fermi level is moved by irradiation with high energy electrons on one and the same sample. The results show that the transition from amorphous to microcrystalline transport is relatively abrupt. If the electron transport takes place in only amorphous regions, it is marked by the sign anomaly of the Hall effect. If a continuous crystalline path exists, the electronic properties are dominated by the crystalline volume fraction. The results of the measurements of silicon layers are compared with those of microcrystalline silicon carbide samples. Silicon carbide is especially interesting for future applications in thin-film solar cells due to high transparency and high conductivity. It is shown that the effective density of states at the valence and conduction band edge as a function of temperature in p- and n-type microcrystalline silicon and silicon carbide samples largely coincide with those of crystalline silicon or silicon carbide. A square root shaped profile of the density of states beyond the band edges is also assumed for microcrystalline silicon alloys. However, the mobility of charge carriers in silicon carbide samples is on average much smaller than those of silicon samples. To explain the variation of carrier mobility in microcrystalline silicon and silicon carbide samples two models were used: The model of differential mobility can justify the dependence of the Hall mobility on the position of the Fermi level and the influence of the band tail. The potential fluctuation model predicts a lower mobility of charge carriers in silicon carbide than in silicon samples due to the larger potential fluctuations in microcrystalline silicon carbide. This is confirmed by thermopower and conductivity measurements.

    The book presents a new brake system with mechatronically controlled self-energizing and with low energy demand. Potentials and limits of mechatronic parameter value control are pointed out with a view towards future brake-by-wire systems. Measurements on a parameter-controlled duplex drum brake provide information on the response to different disturbances. The possibility of influencing the driver by parameter-controlled wheel brakes were investigated in a novel experimental vehicle with freely programmable brake system parameters, and the main paramters of the driver/brake system interface were identified. The report ends with a few words on adaptive brake systems which can combine optimum driving efficiency with maximum comfort in all possible driving situations. (orig.) [Deutsch] Das vorliegende Buch stellt eine neuartige Fahrzeugbremse mit mechatronisch geregelter Selbstverstaerkung vor, die einen niedrigen Spannenergiebedarf aufweist. Im Hinblick auf zukuenftige Brake-by-Wire-Systeme werden Potentiale, aber auch Grenzen einer mechatronischen Kennwertregelung aufgezeigt. Messungen an einer kennwertgeregelten Duplex-Trommelbremse geben Aufschluss ueber das Betriebsverhalten unter Einfluss verschiedener Stoergroessen. Die Moeglichkeiten einer Fahrerbeeinflussung durch kennwertgeregelte Radbremsen werden mittels eines neuartigen Versuchsfahrzeugs mit frei programmierbaren Bremssystemparametern untersucht. Darueber hinaus wird die Schnittstelle Fahrer/Bremssystem hinsichtlich ihrer bestimmenden Parameter beschrieben. Den Schluss der Arbeit bildet ein Ausblick auf adaptive Bremssysteme mit dem Potential, optimale fahrdynamische Effizienz bei groesstmoeglichem Komfort situationsabhaengig darzustellen. (orig.)

    This thesis describes time-resolved investigations of the atomic structure of one-dimensional organic molecular crystals after laser excitation of the photo-induced phase transition. There is a neutral to ionic phase transition in tetrathiafulvalene-chloranil-crystals (TTF-CA-crystals). At this phase transition a Peierls distortion occurs. A new model is introduced, that can explain the photo-induced phase transition in TTF-CY-crystals. This model is called charge density wave model of photo induced structural phase transition. There is a structural phase transition in tetrathiafulvalene-tetracyanochinodimethane-crystals (TTF-TCNQ-crystals). At this phase transition the one-dimensional metal TTF-TCNQ is transformed to an insulator. The phase transition is driven by the Peierls distortion. The charge density wave model is appropriate for description of the processes in TTF-TCNQ-crystals after laser excitation. The results of time-resolved measurements of the structure of TTF-TCNQ-crystals after excitation of the photo-induced phase transition can be anticipated with the charge density wave model. In the basis of these anticipated results, a time-resolved measurement for investigation of the atomic structure of TTF-TCNQ after excitation of the photo-induced phase transition is proposed. The time-resolved measurement should be performed at a beamline of a third generation synchrotron by the optical pump X-ray probe technique. The time-resolved measurement is prepared by an optical characterization and by static X-ray diffraction measurements. The results of the optical characterization and the static X-ray diffraction measurements are presented and analyzed. (orig.)

    Purpose: to determine regional and global left ventricular (LV) functional parameters and to perform segmental wall thickness (SWT) and motion (WM) analysis of dual source CT (DSCT) with optimized temporal resolution versus MRI. Materials and Methods: 30 patients with known or suspected CAD, non-obstructive HCM, DCM, ARVCM, Fallot Tetralogy, cardiac sarcoidosis and cardiac metastasis underwent DSCT and MRI. The DSCT and MR images were evaluated: end-systolic (ESV), end-diastolic LV (EDV) volumes, stroke volume (SV), ejection fraction (EF), and myocardial mass (MM) as well as LV wall thickening and segmental WM applying the AHA model were obtained and statistically analyzed. Results: The mean LV-EDV (r = 0.96) and ESV (r = 0.98) as well as LV-EF (r = 0.97), SV (r = 0.83), and MM (r = 0.95) correlated well. Bland Altman analysis revealed little systematic underestimation of LV-EF (-1.1 {+-} 7.8%), EDV (-0.3 {+-} 18.2 ml), SV (-1.3 {+-} 16.7 ml) and little overestimation of ESV (1.1 {+-} 7.8 ml) and MM (12.8 {+-} 14.4 g) determined by DSCT. Systolic reconstruction time points correlated well (DSCT 32.2 {+-} 6.7 vs. MRI 35.6 {+-} 4.4% RR-interval). The LV wall thickness obtained by DSCT and MRI showed close correlation in all segments (diameter diff 0.42 {+-} 1 mm). In 413 segments (89%) WM abnormalities were equally rated, whereas DSCT tended to underestimate the degree of wall motion impairment. Conclusion: DSCT with optimized temporal resolution enables regional and global LV function analysis as well as segmental WM analysis in good correlation with MRI. However, the degree of WM impairment is slightly underestimated by DSCT. (orig.)

    Hydrostatic level control is of high priority for normal operation safety of BWR-type reactors. For the prevention of undershooting the limiting values precise and secure measuring techniques are indispensable. Actually the filling level is determined form the hydrostatic pressure difference to a reference column. For the secure non-invasive detection of the phase boundary water/steam in inclined tubes the X-ray radiography has been chosen. The experiments were aimed to study possible geometric influences on the water/steam phase boundary. It was shown that the reference filling level is not significantly changed in spite of permanent phase transitions, provided an ideal mechanical construction of the system is given. Future experiments shall be focused on the analysis of interface behavior in case of non-ideal geometries (welds).

    Microstructural evolution during aging treatment in a high tensile precipitation hardening stainless steel (X4CrNiSiTi14-7) has been investigated. Matrix consists of martensitic structure and the combined addition of Si and Ti causes an intermetallic phase type Ni{sub 16}Ti{sub 6}Si{sub 7} that precipitates with-in grains and enhance precipitation strengthening. This material shows a good combination of high strength and ductility. Light-Optical microscopy, electron back scattered diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis have been used to study the microstructural evolution during aging. It has been found that precipitations of various kinds are taking place during aging treatments including nm-scaled G-phase and various carbides. Higher aging temperatures lead to reverse transformation of martensite to austenite. (orig.)

    The use of high temperature superconductors (HTSC) like YBCO with distinct lower surface resistance compared to normal conductors allows miniaturisation of high frequency (HF) circuits. The object of this work was the fabrication of YBCO thin films on low loss sapphire substrates applicable for stripline devices. To induce epitaxial growth and to avoid chemical reaction at the film-substrate boundary buffer layers were investigated. The examination of the growth properties and especially of the surface impedance has been allotted particular importance. In contrast to CaTiO{sub 3} it was possible to deposit CeO{sub 2}-buffer layers in direct growth up to a thickness of about 30 nm without cracks. The films show all growth properties required and even Laue-oscillations being a feature of high quality growth enabling the determination of film thickness distribution without destruction. The YBCO growth-, transport- and HF-properties meet the ones of YBCO films on standard substrates. A remarkable result is that the mosaic distribution of the CEO film, itself strongly dependend on film thickness, does not influence that of the YBCO film considerably. Rather it changes its shape subsequently due to YBCO deposition. A further particularity in contrast to deposition on standard substrates is the need to adjust the substrate heater tempeature for deposition of YBCO films with thicknesses {>=}300 nm needed for HF application. To demonstrate their usefullness some stripline devices like planar coils and side coupled filters have been fabricated and characterised. (orig.)

    The air conditioning system is one of the most important ancillary units of a motor vehicle. Energetic optimization of air conditioners has been a key issue of research at AUDI AG during the past few years. As a rule, the cooling capacity of the air conditioner is controlled by adapting the compressor lift if the compressor is driven by the car engine and control via the rotational speed is not possible. As air conditioners ted to be designed for extreme conditions, the compressor will work at part load in most operating conditions. Optimization of the energetic efficiency of the air conditioner also means to look at the part-load behaviour of the compressor. Simulations have been used successfully by AUDI AG for many years now; the have helped to shorten development times and improve the product quality. The contribution describes an advanced model of a swivel plate compressor of a R134a cooling cycle with particular consideration of part-lift operation. The simulation model is based on measurements with continous recording of the piston lift. The focus is on the influence of reduced lift on the compressor efficiency. Another point of interest is the successful integration of the compressor model in the overall refrigerating cycle model which will be used for simulations of system performance and efficiency and for further optimization of the air conditioner.

    This dissertation research aims to develop a cavity as a converter for laser radiation into soft X-rays, and to characterise this thermal radiation. The concept of indirect heating allows for the production of a spatially homogenous plasma at solid state density. For the purpose of this research, the Nhelix laser system has been extended by a second oscillator with a shorter pulse length, and the optical system layout has been redesigned for both beams. This dissertation presents data on the energy loss of Ar-ions in plasma targets generated by direct heating of carbon foils with the Nhelix laser. Due to the use of a new ion detector, the energy resolution ({delta}E/E{approx}0.1%) and the signal-to-noise ratio of the measurements were improved. Measurements with thin carbon foil showed the maximum energy loss in the plasma to be 31% above the energy loss in comparison with the cold foil. The transparency of thin carbon foils for laser light has been investigated as a function of foil thickness and pulse length, which resulted in a maximum laser pulse length applicable for a certain foil thickness and laser intensity. an interferometer was developed and constructed, with which the electron density could be determined with spatial resolution, and for the first time also at different times during the experiment. This diagnostic provides images of the interference pattern with a time difference of 1.5 ns and allows determination of the free electron density up to a maximum density of 2 x 10{sup 20} cm{sup -3}. In order to characterise the cavity radiation, a spectrometer with high time resolution was developed and calibrated in terms of absolute intensity units with a deuterium-lamp. While the laser heats the cavity, the rise in temperature was measured with a time resolution <1 ns up to a maximal radiation temperature of 73{+-}8 eV/k{sub B} (85 x 10{sup 4} C). For this particular cavity geometry, conversion efficiency (with time resolution) of laser energy to thermal energy of the cavity radiation has been derived from the measurements of the development of radiation temperature.

    The development of wholesale electricity prices showed in recent years a very fluctuating course. The starting point for ensuring competitive compliant electricity prices have uniform rules that establish effective competition in the overall wholesale electricity, ensure greater transparency in the market and prohibit market abuse influence exercised on the wholesale price. The REMIT regulation creates a first union-law rules to this standardized specifications. The volume first examines the transparency, competitiveness, and supervisory structures in the wholesale electricity before legislating a regulation. It is clear, as the transparency and supervisory structures should be designed from the wholesale electricity ideally. On this basis, the work is dealing with the REMIT regulation. The author works out to market participants relevant notification and publication requirements, the follow-up demands on the company as well as the now existing prohibitions on market abuse and the related penalty catalog and analyze the supervisory structures newly created in the wholesale electricity. Here, the work also identified the weaknesses of the regulation and shows suitable solution approaches. [German] Die Entwicklung der Stromgrosshandelspreise zeigte in den letzten Jahren einen sehr schwankenden Verlauf. Ausgangspunkt fuer die Gewaehrleistung wettbewerbskonformer Strompreise sind einheitliche Bestimmungen, die im gesamten Stromgrosshandel einen funktionierenden Wettbewerb etablieren, fuer mehr Transparenz am Markt sorgen und marktmissbraeuchliche Einflussnahmen auf den Grosshandelspreis verbieten. Die REMIT-Verordnung schafft als erstes unionsrechtliches Regelwerk hierzu einheitliche Vorgaben. Der Band untersucht zunaechst die Transparenz-, Wettbewerbs-, und Aufsichtsstrukturen im Stromgrosshandel vor Erlass der Verordnung. Dabei wird deutlich, wie die Transparenz- und Aufsichtsstrukturen im Stromgrosshandel idealerweise ausgestaltet sein sollten. Auf dieser Grundlage setzt sich das Werk mit der REMIT-Verordnung auseinander. Dabei arbeitet die Verfasserin die fuer die Marktteilnehmer relevanten Mitteilungs- und Veroeffentlichungspflichten, die daran anknuepfenden Anforderungen an die Unternehmen sowie die nunmehr geltenden Verbote zum Marktmissbrauch und dem damit verbundenen Sanktionskatalog heraus und analysiert die neu geschaffenen Aufsichtsstrukturen im Stromgrosshandel. Dabei identifiziert das Werk auch die Schwaechen der Verordnung und zeigt hierfuer geeignete Loesungsansaetze auf.

    Power plants with gas and steam turbines in pressurized fluidized bed or pressurized gasification processes enable power generation of coal with high efficiency and little emissions. To run these plants the cleaning of the flue gas is necessary before entering the turbines under the conditions of high temperature and pressure. Ceramic filter elements are the most probable method for hot gas cleaning. A simultaneous reduction of gaseous pollutant components under these conditions could help to make the whole process more efficient. The aim of the project is to integrate the catalytic reduction of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitric oxides into the hot gas filtration with ceramic filter elements as a one step mecanism. The project is focused on: - the catalytic behaviour of ferruginous ashes of brown coal, - the effectiveness of calcinated aluminates as a catalyst to remove uncombusted hydrocarbons in a hot gas filtration unit, - numerical simulation of the combined removal of particles and gaseous pollutant components out of the flue gas. (orig.) [Deutsch] Gas- und Dampfturbinen-Kraftwerke mit Druckwirbelschicht- oder mit Druckvergasungsverfahren ermoeglichen die Verstromung von Kohle mit hohem Wirkungsgrad und niedrigen Emissionen.

Eine Reduzierung gasfoermiger Schadstoffe unter den gleichen Bedingungen koennte die Rauchgaswaesche ersetzen. Ziel des Gesamtvorhabens ist es, die Integration von Heissgasfiltration und katalytischem Abbau der Schadstoffe Kohlenmonoxid, Kohlenwasserstoffe und Stickoxide in einem Verfahrensschritt zu untersuchen.

    The relations between the thermal processes around a 200 m deep geothermal well and the petrographic composition were studied using the fibre optic temperature sensing method. The heat injection and heat extraction properties depend on the petrographic properties (porosity, permeability) of the individual layers. Coarse sandy, water saturated layers have good properties, silts and clays have poor properties for het storage and heat extraction. Heat transport occurs in well defined layers with good hydraulic properties and can be explained by a convective heat transport model. (orig.)

Grobsandige bis kiesige, wassergesaettigte Schichten haben guenstige, schluffig-tonige unguenstige Eigenschaften fuer die Waermeaus- bzw. -einspeisung. Der wesentliche Waermetransport erfolgt in definierten geringmaechtigen Schichten mit guten hydraulischen Eigenschaften. Der Waermetransport in poroesen, wassergefuellten Schichten kann mit einem konvektiven Waermetransportmodell erklaert werden. (orig.)

    Experimental and theoretical investigations were made in order to define the main influencing parameters of gap flow and secondary flow in compressor cascades. The investigations and results are presented in detail. [German] Im Rahmen des FVV-Forschungsvorhabens 'Randstroemung in Verdichtergittern' wurden am Institut fuer Strahlantriebe der Universitaet der Bundeswehr Muenchen umfangreiche experimentelle und theoretische Untersuchungen zur Bestimmung der wesentlichen Einflussgroessen auf die Spalt- und Sekundaerstroemung in Verdichtergittern durchgefuehrt. Als Parameter wurden die Spaltweite, das Schaufelseitenverhaeltnis mit Schaufelhoehe und Sehnenlaenge, die aerodynamische Belastung und die Zustroemgrenzschichtdicke variiert. Zur Analyse der Stroemungsvorgaenge wurden Fuenflochsonden-Stroemungsfeldtraversierungen, Profil- und Seitenwanddruckverteilungsmessungen und Laser-Zwei-Fokus-Messungen im Spalt herangezogen. Die experimentellen Untersuchungen zeigen eine komplexe Wechselwirkung zwischen Spalt- und Kanalwirbel. Die Spalt- und Sekundaerverluste steigen mit der Spaltweite und der aerodynamischen Belastung, wobei der Anstieg eine welchselseitige Abhaengigkeit der Parameter aufweist. Gegenueber dem Schaufelseitenverhaeltnis verhalten sich die Spalt- und Sekundaerverluste umgekehrt proportional. Die Zustroemgrenzschicht beeinflusst zwar den Verlust- und Abstroemwinkelverlauf ueber der Schaufelhoehe, jedoch nicht die sich abzueglich des Profil- und Zustroemverlustes ergebenden Spalt- und Sekundaerverluste. Die verwendeten 3D Stroemungsberechnungsverfahren erfassen die Stroemungsphaenomene qualitativ gut, wobei der Spaltmodellierung eine besondere Rolle zukommt. Die realistische Spaltmodellierung erlaubt einen sehr detaillierten Einblick in das Stroemungsgeschehen im Spalt. Die Verlustberechnung erweist sich jedoch als sehr unsicher. Auf der Grundlage einer umfangreichen Literaturanalyse wurden die verfuegbaren Korrelationen zur Berechnung des Spaltverlustes und der Abstroemwinkelverteilung zusammengestellt und mit den Messungen verglichen. Dabei ergab sich eine grosse Streubreite der Korrelationen, die auf eine unterschiedliche Bewertung der Spaltweite und der aerodynamischen Belastung zurueckzufuehren ist. Die haeufig anzutreffende Trennung in einen reinen Spaltverlust und einen von der Spaltstroemung unbeeinflussten Sekundaerverlust erscheint physikalisch nicht sinnvoll. Unter Beruecksichtigung der experimentellen Ergebnisse wurden verbesserte Spaltverlust- und Abstroemwinkelkorrelationen erarbeitet. (orig.)

    Gas-induced fluidized-bed reactors are suited for permanent anaerobic digestion without runbacks. The carrier particles must have a high fixing capacity and mechanical stability for permanent-biofilm formation. The suitability of macroporous polyurethane carrier materials, the biofilm formation properties, the digestion of substrates and the production of biogas were investigated for synthetic waste water and potato starch waste water in 70 l liquid upward current reactors, bubble column reactors and gas lift loop reactors with/out gas recirculation. (LU) [Deutsch] In gasinduzierten Wirbelbett-Reaktoren ist eine prozessstabile anaerobe Abbaureaktion ohne Abwasserruecklauf moeglich.

Experimentell wurden in begasten und unbegasten Systemen (Fluessigkeits-Aufstromreaktor, Blasensaeulenreaktor, Gaslift-Schlaufenreaktor, Reaktorvolumen jeweils 70 l) die Eignung makroporoeser Traegermaterialien aus Polyurethanmasse, die Biofilmbildung, der Substratabbau und die Biogasproduktion untersucht. Eingesetzt wurde ein synthetisches Abwasser und ein Abwasser aus der Staerkeindustrie (Kartoffelfruchtwasser). (LU)

    The book investigates the role of energy coordination centres for communal energy turnaround. The investigations were carried out in the Erzgebirge energy region, which comprises 13 member communities. It was found that the influence of an energy coordination centre on a community is parallel to the community's awareness of the necessity of local energy turnaround measures. Energy control centres can sharpen this awareness of communities by outlining individual advantages of engagement with these issues and by making concrete suggestions for projects. Here, it becomes clear that communities will be more interested especially in bigger investment projects of an (external)financially strong investor. Most of the communities under investigation were in the range of 1,000 to 7,000 inhabitants; it must be assumed that in this case the opinions of the highest-ranked person of communal authority. This consideration should influence the scope of action of energy coordination centres. The example of a 'pioneering community' in the energy region showed that the consulting services of the energy coordination centre not only led to lower energy consumption (and, in consequence, lower energy expenses) on a medium-term basis but also helped to coordinate the activities of initiatives, e.g. initiatives promoting citizens-owned solar power stations. As the book shows, energy coordination centres take care of communities in general but are also actively supporting initiatives within the community and have a coordinating function when it comes to intercommunity projects. While energy coordination centres are not a 'heal-all' for implementation of the energy turnaround at community level or regional level, they must be viewed as a powerful instrument to achieve it.

    The organic rankine cycle is a thermodynamic cycle process which uses an organic fluid working fluid instead of water in comparison to the commercial rankine process. The organic rankine cycle facilitates sufficiently high pressures at moderate temperatures. The organic rankine cycle significantly expands the technically possible and economically feasible ranges of application of such heat and power processes. The geothermal power is a very attractive field of application. Thermal water with a temperature of nearly 100 Celsius can be used for the power generation by means of the organic rankine cycle. Especially zeotropic mixtures are interesting as a working fluid. This is due to a non-isothermal phase change to a temperature glide which adapts very well to the temperature progress of the heat source. The author of the book under consideration reports on the application of different mixtures in the organic rankine cycle. The evaluation is based on a thermodynamic analysis and considers also toxicological, ecologic, technical as well as economic aspects.

    In the present thesis response effects in interatomic collisions with two active electrons are studied in the range of non-relativistic collision energies. The starting point is the mapping of the time-dependent interacting many-electron sytem on an effective one-particle picture on the base of the time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT). By means of the basis generator method the one-particle equations aring in the framework of the TDDFT concept are solved in a finite-dimensional model space. In the study of ionization cross section in the collisional systeem anti p+He it is shown that by response effects an essential diminuishing of the cross sections in comparison to the no-response case is reached. Analoguously the ionization cross sections for the collisional systems p-He, He{sup 2+}-He, Li{sup 3+}-He and p-Li{sup +} behave.

    Left ventricular ejection (LVEF) was assessed by both radionuclide ventriculography and echocardiography. The correlation coefficient of 0.74 revealed a just good agreement. It was better in the range of normal than of pathological values. The analysis of regional wall motion performed by echocardiography was not as reliable as by radionuclide ventriculography. The main advantage of echocardiography is its good spatial resolution. Its domain is the diagnostics of pathomorphological changes including valvular disorders. Advantages of radionuclide ventriculography are good temporal resolution, registration of the third dimension, practicability during exercise and as bed side method (nuclear stethoscope). Functional disturbances of both ventricles are its field of application. (orig.).

    Der Ausgang des Romans Die Leiden des Jungen Werther (1774, von Johann Wolfgang von Goethe) wird beim ersten Anblick oft als tragische Folge einer unglücklichen und unerwiderten Liebe zu Lotte angesehen. In dieser vorliegenden Arbeit wird der weit erforschten Frage der Unvermeidbarkeit des Suizids im Werk eine alternative Deutung geliefert. Diese ist außerhalb des Romans angesiedelt, und zeigt, dass der Suizid schon in der Epoche angelegt ist.

  2. A4F-SAXS online-coupling for the investigation of nanoparticles and polymers; Die A4F-SAXS Online-Kopplung zur Untersuchung von Nanopartikeln und Polymeren

    Knappe, Patrick

    2012-07-13

    In the present thesis the online-coupling of asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation (A4F) with small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) as a versatile analytical tool is introduced and applied to current challenges in nanoparticle analysis as well as to model systems of technically relevant polymers. The A4F provides size separation of sample solutions and suspensions. Due to the separation principle only low shear forces are applied which appear in competing methods. Therefore, this method allows processing of very sensitive sample materials. SAXS allows non-destructive probing of nanoscale structures in the range of about one to one hundred nanometers. By coupling with A4F, the complexity of sample systems with broad size distributions, which are therefore frequently hard to characterize, is reduced significantly prior to further analysis. Applying this approach, detailed information about sample properties can be gained accurately with respect to the shape, size and size distribution of particles or conformation of macromolecules in short time. Addition of a dynamic light scattering detector to the setup allows a further conclusion. With the latter, a nanoparticles suspension was characterized rapidly and with good precision with respect to the core properties of the particles as well as the thickness of the stabilizer's shell in a single online run. These parameters are important when dealing not only with functionality but also with the bioavailability or toxicity of nanoparticles. This methodology was also successfully applied to polymer systems for the first time, namely poly(vinyl pyrrolidone)s as well as strong and weak polyelectrolytes. Additionally, due to the applied separation method samples with broad molar mass distributions were processable which otherwise tend to interfere with stationary phase-based chromatography. Furthermore, using SAXS, structural properties can be resolved from smaller polymer size-fractions which are hardly accessible with other standardly used methods.

    As part of a study dealing with the concentration of benzene, toluene, xylene, and ethylbenzene in the neigbourhood of fillings stations (indoor and outdoor air, benzene in the blood, t,t-muconous acid in urine), a total of about 70 volatile organic compounds were analysed in the `personal air` (personal sampler) of 13 persons living in the neighbourhood of the filling stations and 6 control persons during the summer of 1996. The mean concentrations of alkene and cycloalkene were below 3 {mu}g/m{sup 3}. The mean concentrations of benzene, m/p-xylene and toluene were 4.5 {mu}g/m{sup 3}, 6.8 {mu}g/m{sup 3}, and 34 {mu}g/m{sup 3}, respectively. The mean contamination of all other substances was below 3 {mu}g/m{sup 3}, halogenated hydrocarbons were below 1 {mu}g/m{sup 3}. The mean VOC-concentrations in the personal air of those persons living next to the filling stations and that seen in the control persons were not different. On the whole, the concentrations of total volatile organic substances were low, all the higher values could be explained by individual occupational or private activities (e.g. redecoration of the flat or smoking). Compared with the data of the `environmental survey` 1990/91, all substances revealed substantially lower mean values; we suggest that seasonal differences in the study time may be the main cause.

Die mittlere Belastung mit Alkanen und Cycloalkanen lag bei allen Einzelsubstanzen unter 3 {mu}g/m{sup 3}. Die durchschnittliche Konzentration an Benzol, m/p-Xylol und Toluol betrug 4,5 {mu}g/m{sup 3}, 6,8 {mu}g/m{sup 3} und 34 {mu}g/m{sup 3}. Alle uebrigen Aromaten wiesen eine mittlere Belastung von unter 3 {mu}g/m{sup 3} auf. Saemtliche halogenierten Kohlenwasserstoffe lagen im Mittel unter 1 {mu}g/m{sup 3}. Die mittlere Belastung der personenbezogenen Luft im Atembereich von Tankstellenanwohnern unterschied sich nicht von der Belastung einer kleinen Gruppe von Kontrollpersonen. Die Belastung war insgesamt gering, einzelne Maximalwerte konnten durch spezifische berufliche oder private Belastungen (z.B. Renovieren der Wohnung waehrend des Untersuchungszeitraums, Rauchen) erklaert werden. Im Vergleich mit den Ergebnissen des Umweltsurveys 1990/91 wurden bei allen Einzelsubstanzen deutlich niedrigere Mittelwerte bestimmt; jahreszeitliche Unterschiede waehrend der Probenahmephase sind hier die wahrscheinlich bedeutendste Ursache.

    The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1992 first illustrated the social, economic and politic focus being placed on combating climate change caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gases. From there onwards research and development efforts have particularly centred on the reduction of CO{sub 2} emissions in the production of electrical power through the use of carbonaceous fossil fuels. The long-term goal is a conversion to sustainable and CO{sub 2} free means of producing power, utilizing in the main part renewable forms of energy such as solar, wind and hydro power. Currently, such renewable ways of creating electricity only represent a small percentage of global energy production. The technological and economic hurdles that are associated with a substantial increase of renewable energy production have greatly slowed their increased implementation. However, the goal of keeping the atmospheric CO{sub 2} concentration below 450 ppm requires a significantly faster reduction in the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, considerations are being given to bridge technologies which would be able to capture and store the CO{sub 2} emissions from fossil fired power plants. These technologies are referred to as CCS (carbon capture and storage). Oxy-fuel combustion, combustion with pure oxygen instead of air, is one of those technologies and forms the focus of investigation of this work. The Institute of Combustion and Power Plant Technology in Stuttgart, Germany, have researched this matter, carrying out combustion experiments in its 150 kW{sub th} circulating fluidized bed pilot facility. The experiments were aimed at investigating the influence of excess oxygen, combustion temperature and inlet oxygen concentration on the combustion process and comparing air to oxy-fuel combustion. These results were compared to the results of fundamental investigations and combustion experiments carried out by other research groups. The relationship between the operating parameters and the combustion characteristics were presented and the underlying mechanisms were identified. During the tests CO, NO{sub x}, SO{sub 2}, CO{sub 2} and O{sub 2} concentrations in the flue gas were measured, as well as the total organic carbon content of both the facility's inventory and the fly ash from the combustion. The tests showed a similar behaviour regarding excess oxygen and combustion temperature as one would expect from air combustion. The increased CO{sub 2} partial pressure slows down the homogenous CO oxidation reaction. Alongside that, higher CO concentrations in the flue gas can be observed to occur. Moreover, combustion losses cannot be estimated by the sole measurement of CO concentration as they show a deviating behaviour. Analysis of the solid combustion losses shows unchanged values when increasing the inlet oxygen concentration. The flue gas recirculation would seem to have the greatest influence on the different variables during oxy-fuel combustion. It further accelerates the capture of SO{sub 2} by the fuel ash. The reduction of the recirculation rate that results from higher inlet oxygen concentrations weakens the associated effects, for example this leads to a decrease of the reduction of NO{sub x}. The experiments carried out can be seen to be in very good agreement with the current findings of both fundamental and combustion research that has been conducted and published by other research groups. Current understanding has been increased through the effects associated with a change of the inlet oxygen concentration and the recirculation rate. A final evaluation of the results considering the transferability to large scale plants completes the investigations. As a result of this work it is possible to confirm the feasibility of oxy-fuel combustion in a circulating fluidized as an excellent technology for the capture of CO{sub 2} from coal fired plants.

    The results of previously studied septic tanks show that the flow conditions in these reactors deviate from those of the ideal stirring reactor. This is at first apparent through the short-time analyses, in which different time periods were determined for the tracer merging by the different circulation systems. It was furthermore found that flow anomalies occur, i.e. dead or stagnation zones, and short-circuit flows. The comparison of different circulation systems leads to the hypothesis that mixing by means of external sludge pumps alone cannot suffice to counteract the formation of flow anomalies. (orig.).

  6. Investigation of the behaviour of impact limiting devices of transport casks for radioactive materials in the package approval and risk analysis; Untersuchung des Verhaltens stossdaempfender Bauteile von Transportbehaeltern fuer radioaktive Stoffe in Bauartpruefung und Risikoanalyse

    Transport casks for radioactive materials with a Type-B package certificate have to ensure that even under severe accident scenarios the radioactive content remains safely enclosed, in an undercritical arrangement and that ionising radiation is sufficiently shielded. The impact limiter absorbs in an accident scenario the major part of the impact energy and reduces the maximum force applied on the cask body. Therefore the simulation of the behaviour of impact limiting devices of transport casks for nuclear material is of great interest for the design assessment in the package approval as well as for risk analysis in the field of transport of radioactive materials. The behaviour of the impact limiter is influenced by a number of parameters like impact limiter construction, material properties and loading conditions. Uncertainties exist for the application of simplified numerical tools for calculations of impact limiting devices. Uncertainities exist when applying simplified numerical tools. A model describing the compression of wood in axial direction of wood under large deformations for simulation with complex numerical procedures like dynamic Finite Element Methods has not been developed yet. Therefore this thesis concentrates on deriving a physical model for the behaviour of wood and analysing the applicability of different modeling techniques. A model describing the compression of wood in axial direction under large deformations was developed on the basis of an analysis of impact limiter of prototypes of casks for radioactive materials after a 9-m-drop-test and impact tests with wooden specimens. The model describes the softening, which wood under large deformation exhibits, as a function of the lateral strain constraint. The larger the lateral strain restriction, the more energy wood can absorb. The energy absorption capacity of impact limiter depends therefore on the ability of the outer steel sheet structure to prevent wood from evading from the main absorption zone. This constitutes a model for the compression of impact limiters. In order to absorb significantly energy, wood must be stabilised by stiff cask or impact limiter structures. An elastic recovery has to be added to after the drop test measured deformations. The Projected Fringe Method for the 3-dimensional surface digitalisation was applied successfully for the first time. The method allows to determine and chart the surface of the impact limiter in advance and after the test. Therefore it is suitable for a damage and deformation documentation of impact limiting devices subjected to a drop test. A simplified numerical tool for the calculation of rigid body decelerations and impact limiter deformations was developed. This tool can be applied purposefully in the design assessment of transport casks for radioactive materials under certain limitations. For a risk analysis different accident scenarios, for instance the impact on real targets, can be evaluated and compared to the regulatory impact in a simple and cost-efficient way. A full scale model of the CONSTOR {sup registered} V/TC was subjected to a 9-m-drop-test. The rigid-body-deceleration as an evaluation scheme, which is widely used up to now is not suited for an assessment of the loading of the package under accident conditions for casks like the CONSTOR {sup registered} V/TC with large, relative to each other movable masses. The cask can not be treated as a rigid body. A substitute model on the basis of conclusions from impact limiter analysis and wooden specimen impact tests was developed for the axial compression of wood. The substitute model takes the lateral strain constraint as triaxiality of the stress field into account. The applicability of different material formulations for the substitute model as well as further modeling techniques were analysed. Of the proposed combinations none could simulate the behaviour of wood under large deformations in an acceptable manner. Different modeling strategies for impact limiter of radioactive materials transport packages were analysed and evaluated. The Finite Element Method can be applied purposeful in type assessment and in risk analysis. Prerequisite is an extensive verifiction with experimental methods, where the boundary conditions of the simulation have to be adjusted to the conditions in the impact limiter concerning lateral strain restriction.

    The impact of climate change and stratospheric chlorine loading on the stratospheric ozone layer is estimated by evaluating three multi-annual simulations of the interactively coupled global chemistry-climate model ECUAM4.L39 (DLR)/CHEM. Two experiments of the near past were carried out representing the early 1980s and 1990s, respectively. An additional scenario was conducted which is characterised by increased greenhouse gas concentrations and a slightly reduced stratospheric chlorine loading with respect to its value measured in the year 1990, according to current projections. The model is able to describe dynamic and chemical processes of the 1980s and 1990s realistically, and it is capable in reproducing the observed stratospheric temperature, water vapour, and ozone temperature trends of this time period. With increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, the model produces an enhancing stratospheric cooling for the years 1980 to 2015. Despite the reduced stratospheric chlorine loading in 2015, the decreased stratospheric temperatures will cause a continued reduction of stratospheric ozone in the southern hemisphere. In the northern hemisphere, tropospheric warming results in a changed excitation of planetary waves. Their vertical propagation and breaking in the stratosphere causes the polar vortex to become more unstable in 2015. This overcompensates the radiative stratospheric cooling so that stratospheric ozone recovers. (orig.)

    Purpose: To determine whether quantitative ultrasound (QUS) parameters speed of sound (SOS) and broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) on the calcaneus are different between athletic children and a reference population. Patients and Methods: From a college of physical education, 177 children and adolescents (121 boys and 56 girls, age range from 11 to 18 years) were included in this study. QUS was performed on the calcaneus using the Sahara trademark device (Hologic, USA). SOS and BUA were estimated. Regional reference values of 3299 children were used to determine significant differences between athletes and reference population. The influence of activity level, age, height, and weight was estimated using correlation analysis. Results: Sportsmen showed significant (p<0.05) higher values of the QUS parameters (SOS 1581.1 m/s; BUA 69.7 dB/MHz) compared to the reference data (SOS 1563.9 m/s; BUA 64.2 dB/MHz). Significant correlation was observed between BUA and the level of activity, age, weight, and height (p<0.01) and between SOS and weight and height (p<0.05). In the group of soccer players and athletes, significant correlation was found between BUA vs. age and BUA vs. weight (p<0.05). Furthermore, significant correlation was observed between BUA vs. age and weight in Judokas and Wrestlers. For the level of activity, a significant correlation to BUA was only found in the group of Judokas and Wrestlers (p<0.01). Conclusion: An increase in quantitative ultrasound parameters on the calcaneus occurs in children and adolescents with increased physical activity. (orig.)

    The European standards for type testing of solid fuel burning appliances require only the measurement of carbon monoxide emissions. Many European countries urge the standardisation committees to establish standards for the regulation of fine particulate emissions from flue gases since they face exceeding threshold values of particulate matter in the ambient air. The Technical Committee CEN/TC 295 for the standardisation of solid fuel burning appliances assigned the Centre for Appropriate Technology in Langenbruck, Switzerland with the development of a European Technical Specification (CEN TS) for the determination of particulate emission. The new draft of the TS is based on constant volume sampling (CVS) of the entire flue gas flow in a dilution tunnel. The scientific research has been done in the Swiss test laboratory for solid fuel burning appliances and boilers at the University of Applied Sciences, in Basle. The TS is designed in such a way that it can be integrated into the test cycles required by various European standards. The investigation covered work on parameters such as dilution factor, sampling temperature and isokinetics. Tests with a wood log burning appliance and a pellet stove showed that emissions in the dilution tunnel were between 7% and 26% for the pellet stove and from 40% up to 160% higher if they were sampled directly from the stack using heated gravimetric filters. It was demonstrated that the differences between the emissions seen in the dilution tunnel and those from the stack increased along with increasing levels of incomplete combustion. (author)

    For a detailed study of the plasma structure and the transport characteristics of a stochastized plasma edge at the tokamak TEXTOR the dynamic ergodic divertor (DED) was constructed, by which differently shaped external disturbing fields are statically and dynamically generated. Aim of this thgesis is to study experimentally the radial and poloidal structure of the plasma edge stochastized by the DED disturbing field and to analyze its transport characteristics. For this spatially highly resolved radial profiles of the electron density and temperature were measured by means of radiation-emission spectroscopy on thermal helium at the high- and low-field side of TEXTOR. These experimental results yield a good stating base for the validation and further development of three-dimensional transport codes.

Due to the emission of electrons, the production of ions and metastable atoms as well as lifetime limiting processes the cathode region is of particular interest. To implement a discharge in spot mode a novel planar mesh electrode was developed and used as cathode. Applying the space resolved laser-atom-absorption-spectroscopy method (LAAS) the absolute particle densities of the two lowest excited xenon atoms and the gas temperature in the cathode region were determined, whereas the strong spot plasma inhomogeneity was considered. Both the excited xenon particle density and the gas temperature strongly decrease in radial and axial direction. Particularly the gas temperature has a value of about 650 K in a 1mm cathode distance and does clearly exceed room temperature. Furthermore the spectrum of the hot spot on the cathode surface was detected by means of optical emission spectroscopy. From this spectrum the temperature distribution of the cathode spot was obtained by fitting Planck's law. The temperature distribution shows a distinct maximum, which in dependence of the discharge current reaches values of 1414 K at 40 mA and 1524 K at 80 mA. From that maximum a steep direction-independent temperature decrease was obtained. A technological important aspect concerning the lifetime of a xenon based mercury-free discharge lamp is the problematic effect of the xenon gas consumption. In this work it is shown that in contrary to an industrial made standard cup electrode, which is broadly used in light advertising lamps, the gas consumption is negligible when applying the novel planar mesh electrode. This reduction of gas consumption is due to the generation of a hot spot along with high cathode temperature and low cathode fall voltage. (orig.)

    Within the study presented here the use of energy recovery from waste was analysed for several industrial facilities, focussing on cement plants, kilns in the lime and gypsum industry, steel works and plants for the production of non ferrous metals. 44 German cement plants dispose of an own clinker production. Presently 31 plants have a permit for recovering energy from waste. The total permitted capacity for energy recovery in German cement kilns amounts to nearly 2,6 Mio. t/a. Mainly waste oil, old tyres, fuel derived from processed production-specific and municipal waste, plastics, scrap wood and waste paper are co-incinerated. In 1998/99 a total amount of roughly 945.000 t refuse was processed in 30 units of the studied facilities. In five furnaces at three steel works waste can be used for energy or material recovery. The approved total capacity of high calorific waste for energy recovery comes to nearly 350,000 t/a. Especially industrial plastics and packaging waste from DSD, plastics processed in scrap mills and shreddered waste and granulated paint sludge are used. In 1998 the facilities processed only old plastic, representing a total amount of nearly 109.000 t. At present seven facilities in the non ferrous metal industry have a permit for energy recovery from waste. The maximum capacity amounts on national level to nearly 140.000 t/a. Especially waste oil, packaging waste, plastics and scrap wood can be processed. The analysis of respective applications of the 17th BImSchV shows an inconsistency within the amending permitting procedures. For the time to come a conformity between the respective regional permitting authorities would be recommendable. Moreover, the effects on air emission caused by using waste for energy recovery were analysed for cement kilns with own clinker production. Due to the amendment of the 17th BImSchV more stringent requirements regarding waste composition must be established. This is especially valid for the highly volatile mercury. For this heavy metal suitable input limitations need to be fixed. (orig.)

    Low-dimensional diffusion was investigated to improve the understanding of the fundamentals of ion movement in condensed matter. Different model systems with different dimensionality of cation migration pathways were investigated using solidstate nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and impedance spectroscopy. Both experimental methods made it possible to complementarily study both Li and Na mobility over a wide range of jump rates. Metallic lithium as a well-known model system for isotropic diffusion was investigated using {sup 7}Li field-cycling NMR. The spin-lattice relaxation (SLR) rates were separated into an electronic contribution and a diffusion-induced contribution. The Korringa product was calculated from the actual measurements. The main focus was the comparison of different theoretical models describing the Li motion in metallic lithium. The well-known model by Bloembergen, Purcell and Pound already reproduced the data well, but two models by Sholl improved the results taking into account the type of crystal lattice and jump correlation effects. A single-vacancy diffusion mechanism was observed, but a double-vacancy mechanism was not excluded as elevated temperatures near the melting point of lithium were not available. Li{sub 0.7}Nb{sub 3}S{sub 4} is isostructural to Li{sub 0.7}Nb{sub 3}Se{sub 4} which was reported as possible 1D Li ion conductor due to its channel structure. Thus, Li{sub 0.7}Nb{sub 3}S{sub 4} was investigated as 1D model system using solid-state NMR spectroscopy. Multinuclear NMR spectroscopy gave insights into structural properties. Li dynamics was observed by several NMR methods over a wide temperature range. {sup 7}Li NMR motional narrowing led to an estimate of the activation energy for local Li hopping. {sup 7}Li NMR spin-alignment echo (SAE) was used for the determination of Li jump rates on a macroscopic scale. Possible dimensionality effects were investigated by {sup 7}Li NMR SLR. Out of the phase system Li{sub 2}O:TiO{sub 2} two compounds with different dimensionalities determined by their crystal lattice were also studied by solid-state NMR and impedance spectroscopy. In both Li{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} and Li{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13}, the Li dynamics was in the focus of the studies, but also the Na dynamics in their parent compounds Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} and Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} was investigated. For Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7}, {sup 23}Na NMR spectroscopy gave insights into structural and dynamic properties. A detailed {sup 6}Li and {sup 7}Li NMR spectroscopy study on Li{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} revealed 2D Li diffusion. Macroscopic cation diffusion for both Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} and Li{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} was investigated using impedance spectroscopy. Furthermore not only Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} and Li{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} were studied, but also mixed ion conductors with different Na/Li ratios. {sup 6}Li, {sup 7}Li and {sup 23}Na NMR spectroscopy and methods as SLR and SAE were used to explore structure and dynamics of cation diffusion in Li{sub x}Na{sub 2-x}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} (x=0,0.33,1,2). A possible 1D cation diffusion was also in the focus of this research. Impedance spectroscopy was again used for the investigation of macroscopic cation diffusion. This method revealed a mixed cation effect in Li{sub x}Na{sub 2-x}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13}.

    The present report contains the result of a research project on `Technology assessment with regard to the environment` which was commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology (BMFT) and carried out jointly by the GSF Research Centre for Environment and Health (GSF) and the Institute for Applied Innovation Research (IAI). In this project the Law on Protection from Harzardous Substances (Law on Chemicals) was used to exemplify the procedure of assessing the consequences of legislation in the area of environmental law. The project proposal distinguished three project phases. In the first an exemplary ex post analysis was to be carried out on a significant legal regulation (the Law on Chemicals) concerning a specific branch of industry generally considered innovative (the chemical industry). In this way it was intended to collect empirical knowledge on how regulations affect innovation processes in the individual company. In the second phase the planned amendment of the Law on Chemicals was to serve as a case example for an assessment of the consequences of legislation. In the third project phase the methodology employed in the former was to be extended for the purpose of developing an instrumentarium for the ex ante assessment of legislation. Such an instrument could permit both the corporate innovator and the innovation promoter to assess the effets of environmental legislation at the corporate level and thus develop an anticipatory conflict management. (orig./SR) [Deutsch] Der vorgelegte Bericht beinhaltet die Ergebnisse des vom GSF-Forschungszentrum fuer Umwelt und Gesundheit (GSF) und dem Institut fuer Angewandte Innovationsforschung (IAI) gemeinsam bearbeiteten BMFT-Forschungsvorhabens `Technikfolgenabschaetzung - Umwelt`. Thema war die Gesetzesfolgenabschaetzung im Bereich der Umweltschutzgesetzgebung am Beispiel des `Gesetzes zum Schutz vor gefaehrlichen Stoffen (Chemikaliengesetz)`. Der Projektvorschlag sah dabei vor, zunaechst in einer ersten Projektphase exemplarisch eine ex post-Analyse in einer als innovativ einzustufenden einzelwirtschaftlichen Branche (der Chemieindustrie) anhand einer signifikanten gesetzlichen Regelung (dem Chemikaliengesetz) durchzufuehren, um so Erfahrungswissen ueber Regelungen und deren Auswirkungen auf den einzelbetrieblichen Innovationsprozess zu sammeln. Darauf aufbauen sollte in einer zweiten Phase exemplarisch - anhand der geplanten Novellierung des Chemikaliengesetzes - eine Gesetzesfolgenabschaetzung durchgefuehrt werden, um so in einer dritten Projektphase eine methodische Erweiterung hinsichtlich der Entwicklung eines Instrumentariums zur ex ante-Abschaetzung von Gesetzen zu entwickeln, das sowohl dem einzelbetrieblichen Innovator als auch dem Innovationsfoerderer erlaubt, Wirkungen gesetzlicher Umweltregelungen auch fuer die einzelbetriebliche Ebene einschaetzen zu koennen, um so ein vorausschauendes Konfliktmanagement zu ermoeglichen.

  16. Highly resolving Rutherford-scattering spectrometry for the study of ZrO{sub 2} layer growth in the beginning stage; Hochaufloesende Rutherford-Streuspektrometrie zur Untersuchung von ZrO{sub 2}-Schichtwachstum im Anfangsstadium

    By means of High Resolution Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (HR-RBS) the diffusion behaviour and layer growth of ZrO{sub 2} on SiO{sub 2} and TiN in the initial regime were investigated. The analysis of concentration profiles in ultrathin layers and interfaces was the focus of this work, made possible by the excellent depth resolution of less than 0.3 nm near the surface. For the first time a two-dimensional position sensitive semiconductor detector was implemented and characterized in the setup of the HR-RBS for the improvement of the quality of the measurement results. Furthermore, a measurement procedure was put into operation that allowed the reduction of ion induced damage. Through the optimization of the experimental conditions and the development of a program package for the support of the analyst, an efficient measurement procedure could be routinely ensured. At the time of a binary collision between the incident ion and the target element with a small impact factor, the charge state changes frequently, especially due to the abruptly decreasing ion velocity of the projectile and the overlapping of the electron clouds. For HR-RBS with an energy-separating dipole magnet, the charge state distribution of the scattered ions must be known for the interpretation of the measured spectra. For the first time a significant dependence of the charge state distribution of the scattered C ions on the layer thickness as well as atomic number of the detected target elements, here from the fourth subgroup, was demonstrated. This new knowledge allowed systematic investigations of the ZrO{sub 2} layer growth in the initial regime. The ZrO{sub 2} layers were produced by means of the atomic layer deposition (ALD). Based on the evidence for agglomeration of ZrO{sub 2} on SiO{sub 2} a method was introduced, which takes local thickness variations into account during the simulation of the HR-RBS spectra. An accurate statement about the ZrO{sub 2}/SiO{sub 2} interface was possible due to the extraction of the thickness variation by the atomic force microscopy (AFM). The boundary surface is sharp except for a small intermediate ZrSiO{sub 4} layer and no diffusion of Zr atoms in SiO{sub 2} could be detected. A quite different behaviour could be derived from high resolution spectra for the growth of ZrO{sub 2} on TiN. Measurements of the surface topography of the TiN layer revealed non negligible values for the surface roughness. A program was developed to capture the influence of the surface roughness on the shape of the high resolution spectrum. This software uses AFM measurements to extract an energy distribution from calculated path length differences for ions scattered at the sample surface. Diffusion of Zr into polycrystalline TiN was demonstrated for the first time taking into account the effect of the surface roughness on the shape of the spectra. This observation indicates that already after the first ALD reaction cycle a small part of the deposited Zr atoms diffuses into the TiN layer up to a depth of 3 nm. Such preliminary results suggest grain boundary diffusion. (orig.)

    In this research report, 50 different kinds of sewage sludges appropriate for the utilization in agriculture were tested for the organic pollutants that are not regulated in the official sewage sludge directive: organo tin compounds, mineral oil hydrocarbons, the tensides LAS and nonylphenol, as well as chlorinated paraffins. The analysis of mineral oil hydrocarbons was performed using the gaschromatografic method, which is based on DIN-proposal H 53. The analysis data was evaluated according to the size of the waste water treatment plant, its degree of usage to full capacity, the employed cleaning and sewage treatment methods and the industrial discharges. Investigations of sewer slime were conducted in the duct systems of two selected waste water treatment plants and tested for organo tin compounds. The dependence from domestic as well as from certain industrial and commercial sources was examined. In the second part of this research project, organo tin compounds and mineral oil hydrocarbons were tested in field trials and laboratory column experiments for the effects of the distribution of sewage sludge into agriculture. For the column experiments, ground soil samples were taken from two selected areas with muddy and sandy ground. The samples were then compounded with wet sludge and exposed to rain under strictly defined conditions. At the same time, the selected areas were exposed to the maximum amount of sewage sludge permitted and then planted with carrots. After a vegetation period, the carrots were harvested, adsorption bodies (SIA-system-method) were brought into the soil before the sewage sludge fertilization was examined, and several soil samples were taken and analysed for the selected parameters. In these examinations, a minor shift of organo tin compounds from the sewage sludge deeper into the ground can be detected and a shift of mineral oil hydrocarbons cannot be detected. (orig.)

    The evaporation and mixing of a kerosine spray in the turbulent airstream of a prevaporizer is investigated at conditions prevailing in the combustion chamber of gas turbines. An experiment is described that allows to study an evaporating fuel spray downstream a prefilming airblast atomizer with Phase-Doppler anemometry, laser-induced fluorescence and an infrared light absorption technique. At an air pressure of 9 bars, an air temperature of 750 K, a mean air velocity of 120 m/s and a fuel flow rate of 1 g/s the kerosine spray evaporates completely without autoignition. At this operating condition the parameters air pressure, air temperature and air turbulence are varied. The influence of these parametric variations on the dropsize distribution, the evaporation rate and the concentration profiles of liquid and evaporated fuel is presented and discussed. (orig.) [German] Die Verdampfung und Vermischung eines Kerosinsprays in der turbulenten Luftstroemung eines Vorverdampfers wird unter Bedingungen untersucht, die in Brennkammern fuer Gasturbinen vorherrschen. Ein Experiment wird vorgestellt, welches es erlaubt, ein verdampfendes Kraftstoffspray stromab eines ebenen Luftstromzerstaeubers mit Filmleger mittels der Phasen-Doppler-Anemometrie, Laser-induzierter Fluoreszenz und einer Infrarotabsorptionsmesstechnik zu untersuchen. Bei einem Luftdruck von 9 bar, einer Vorwaermetemperatur der Luft von 750 K, einer mittleren Luftgeschwindigkeit von 120 m/s und einem Kraftstoffmassenstrom von 1 g/s verdampft das Kerosinspray vollstaendig, ohne die Selbstzuendungszeit zu erreichen. Bei dieser Betriebsbedingung werden die Parameter Luftdruck, Lufttemperatur und Turbulenzgrad variiert. Der Einfluss dieser Parameter auf das Tropfengroessenspektrum, den Verdampfungsgrad und die Konzentrationsprofile des fluessigen sowie des verdampften Kraftstoffs wird dargestellt und diskutiert.

    Purpose: until now, no mechanical closure devices were available to achieve fast and secure hemostasis for vessel closure after catheterization of small arterial vessels. Material and methods: eighty patients were randomized to evaluate the effect on hemostasis by use of a chitosan pad (Chito-Seal, Abbott Vascular Devices, Galway/Ireland) in comparison to manual compression after diagnostic transbrachial arterial catheterization. Hemostasis after three minutes and one hour as well as local development of a hematoma after one and twenty-four hours were assessed. Results: the use of chitosan pads significantly decreased the bleeding time in the first three minutes after manual compression time (p < 0.01). Significant decrease in bleeding risk at three minutes by use of the chitosan closure pads was also found in subgroups of patients with hypertension (p < 0.001) or diabetes (p < 0.01) and also in patients under anticoagulation therapy (p < 0.01). In addition, long-term protection from bleeding complications such as the risk of hematoma was decreased by the use of chitosan closure pads one hour (p < 0.01) or twenty-four hours (p < 0.001) after catheter removal. Conclusion: the use of an intravascular anchor or suture system is not safely applicable in these vessels due to the small diameter of the brachial artery. Our results document a significant improvement in hemostasis by using chitosan pads in these cases. (orig.)

  20. Study of verifying QCD-instantons with heavy flavours in e{sup {+-}}p-collisions at HERA; Untersuchung der Nachweisbarkeit von QCD-Instantonen mit schweren Quarks in e{sup {+-}}p-Kollisionen bei HERA

    In this thesis in the framework of a Monte-Carlo study an examination of verificability of QCD instantons by heavy quarks in e{sup {+-}}p collisions at HERA was performed. A new approach for the detection of instantons was applied, for which the Monte-Carlo generator QCDINS in the 2.0 version was correspondingly modified for the simulation of instanton-induced events. Instanton events were studied, which contain additionally to the three light quark-antiquark pairs u anti u, d anti d, and s anti s the two heavy quark-antiquark pairs c anti c and b anti b, simultaneously this analysis was performed not in deep inelastic scattering but in photoproduction. In order to be able to discriminate instanton-induced processes from ordinary photoproduction events, following characteristic instanton variables were applied: transverse energy and transverse momentum of the instanton band, number of hadrons in the final state, which are located in the instanton band, sphericity and isotropy, transverse energy and transverse momentum of the current jet, quark virtuality. Furthermore different kinematical cuts were tested. As final cuts then quark virtuality: 60 GeV{sup 2}{<=}Q{sup '2}{<=}200 GeV{sup 2} and multiplicity n{sub B}{>=}40 were applied, by which the background can be very strongly suppressed. Also it has been proved as mistake to detect instanton-induced processes, which contain additionally the two heavy quark-antiquark pairs c anti c and b anti b, by means of a triple-lepton tag, so nevertheless a considerable number of events with two leptons present, which originate from the decay of c and b hadrons. If two equally charged leptons with at least p{sub t}{>=}0.5 GeV are postulated, so in the ordinary photoproduction events the c anti c as well as the light-flavor background can be eliminated, whereby the distributions of the considered variables do not change qualitatively and therefore still only between instanton-induced and pure b anti b events must be differentiated. The determined upper limit for the number of instanton-induced events without suppression factor for the masses of the c and b quarks in the instanton cross section, normalized to the ZEUS luminosity L=406.7 pb{sup -1} from 2002 to 2007, lies at N{sub INS}{approx_equal}12,600 (respectively 2,300, if the transverse momentum of the leptons is p{sub t}{>=}1 GeV). If this suppression factor should be of one up to maximally two orders of magnitude, so a sufficient number of instantons would remain, so that a future measurement based on this new approach can be applied to the HERA data.

  1. Characterisation of laser induced thermal radiation for the experimental investigation of heavy ion interactions with plasma; Charakterisierung lasererzeugter Hohlraumstrahlung fuer die experimentelle Untersuchung der Wechselwirkung von Schwerionen mit Plasmen

    One major area of interest of the plasma physics group at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum fuer Schwerionenforschung GmbH (GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research) and the laser and plasma physics group at the Institut fuer Kernphysik (Nuclear Physics Institute) of the University of Technology Darmstadt is the determination of the energy loss of heavy ions in plasma. The experimental area Z6 at GSI offers the unique opportunity for this in the combination of the ion accelerator UNILAC with two high energy laser systems: nhelix and PHELIX. In recent experiments a thin carbon foil is probed by regular ion bunches every 9.2 ns. A laser pulse of one or both of the laser systems heats the foil to the plasma state at a certain time. The change in arrival time of each ion bunch at a stop detector allows to determine the energy loss in the plasma. In addition to this experimental scheme with a directly heated foil a different scheme with indirectly heated targets is investigated. The laser is unable to penetrate the foil and thus deposits its energy on the surface, leading to gradients in density and temperature. In the indirectly heated set-up the laser energy is converted into thermal X-Rays in a converter hohlraum. A secondary cavity, containing the interaction target for the ion beam, is attached to the converter and heated homogeneously by the X-Rays. In the present work the thermal radiation from a converter cavity with a diameter of either 750 m or 650 m was investigated. The frequency-doubled nhelix beam (532 nm wavelength) with energies of up to 30 joules in six to seven nanoseconds (FWHM) was used as the heating laser. A new diode spectrometer, specifically designed for the temperature measurement, recorded the absolute radiation intensity at four different wavelengths and resolved the temperature evolution during the heating phase. Maximum values between 32 eV and 38 eV have been determined in various measurements. In addition to the temporal characterisation the thermal radiation has also been recorded in a timeintegrated manner with a regular spectrometer. The diffraction grating's efficiency was calculated by solving the Maxwell equations on the grating surface. With this efficiency, and an assumed timeintegrated Planckian spectral distribution, the measured spectra could be reproduced very well. The deduced temperatures were in the range of 33 eV and 36 eV, in excellent agreement with the timeresolved measurements. The self-similar solution of the hydrodynamic equations, which describe the conversion process at the interior cavity wall, lead to a scaling law for the achievable temperatures in dependence of the experimental parameters. The measured temperatures are in good agreement with results obtained from this scaling law. Besides the geometrical parameters and the laser intensity, the wall's re-emission coefficient (albedo) and the conversion efficiency of laser light to X-Rays play an important role. A value of 0.75 for the albedo and a conversion efficiency of 0.4 to 0.5 from laser light to X-Rays yield the measured temperatures. Both are in agreement with published values for the laser parameters. (orig.)

    In the framework of the present thesis the fast lattice heating in thin metal and bismuth layers after optical short-pulse excitation was studied. By irradiation of ultrathin solid films with ultrashort (femtosecond) laser pulses for sort times an extreme nonequilibrium state occurs: The electronic system is strongly excited, while the lattice system remains cold. An energetic exchange between both systems follows, which is based on the electron-phonon interaction and leads to heating of the lattice system. This lattice heating can be observed by means of the Debye-Waller effect in the electron diffraction image. By means of the excitation-interrogation scheme by a series of moment records this lattice heating can be observed time-resolvedly. The experimentally determind time scales for this process permit conclusions on the electron-phonon coupling in the studied materials. In this thesis a time-resolving transmissi9on-electron diffraction experiment with sub-picosecond time resolution was constructed and optimized. By means of this experiment the fast lattice heating in thin gold, silver, copper, and bismuth films was studied. The observed heating behaviour of the metal films shows agreement with theoretical predictions of different model calculations. The results of the measurements on bismuth films show a hitherto not observed coupling behaviour. [German] Im Rahmen der vorliegenden Arbeit wurde die schnelle Gitteraufheizung in duennen Metall- und Wismutschichten nach optischer Kurzimpulsanregung untersucht. Durch Bestrahlung duenner Festkoerperfilme mit ultrakurzen (Femtosekunden-) Laserimpulsen entsteht fuer kurze Zeiten ein extremer Nichtgleichgewichtszustand: Das elektronische System wird stark angeregt, waehrend das Gittersystem kalt bleibt. Es folgt ein energetischer Austausch zwischen beiden Systemen, der auf der Elektron-Phonon-Wechselwirkung beruht und zur Aufheizung des Gittersystems fuehrt. Diese Gitteraufheizung kann anhand des Debye-Waller-Effektes im Elektronenbeugungsbild beobachtet werden. Mit Hilfe des Anrege-Abfrage-Schemas laesst sich durch eine Serie von Momentaufnahmen diese Gitteraufheizung zeitaufgeloest beobachten. Die experimentell ermittelten Zeitskalen fuer diesen Prozess lassen Rueckschluesse auf die Elektron-Phonon-Kopplung in den untersuchten Materialien zu. In dieser Arbeit wurde ein zeitaufloesendes Transmissionselektronenbeugungsexperiment mit Sub-Pikosekunden zeitlicher Aufloesung aufgebaut und optimiert. Mit Hilfe dieses Experimentes wurde die schnelle Gitteraufheizung in duennen Gold-, Silber-, Kupfer- und Wismutfilmen untersucht. Das beobachtete Aufheizverhalten der Metallfilme zeigt Uebereinstimmungen mit theoretischen Vorhersagen verschiedener Modellrechnungen. Die Ergebnisse der Messungen an Wismutfilmen zeigen ein bisher nicht beobachtetes Kopplungsverhalten. (orig.)

    The influences on the fuel consumption of the individual automobile are investigated and their importance is appraised. From these data measures are derived to obtain a sensible fuel consumption. After a survey of conventional benefit-cost-analyses, guide lines for a benefit-cost-analyses of fuel economies in passenger car traffic are given. A target system is established which includes the most important criteria, which determine the total fuel consumption of passenger cars in Austria. Hereby it is possible to calculate the fuel saving potential of a certain measure. The economy of a measure is characterized by a benefit-cost-ratio. The developed methods of appraisal are applied to 14 measures and prove to be a suitable instrument for a systematic and comparable analyses of the individual measures. The measures are listed according to their economy when examining three different periods. It is shown which average annual fuel saving potential can be achieved by means of which annual costs.

    The author attempted to derive cylinder-selective combustion characteristics from the rotational speed of aninternal combustion engine which should be applicable as control variables for combustion control. Physical models of the components of a four-cylinder diesel engine were developed. Simulations, rotary vibration measurements and cylinder pressure indexing were used for quantitative assessment of external momenta at the crankshaft which are interfering variables in speed-based identification of combustion charcteristics. In particular, the dynamics of control drive and secondary aggregate drive are regarded as well as nonlinear mechanical effects. Further, the influence of intrinsic vibrations of the crankshaft is investigated. On the basis of the models developed here, a method is presented for determining the cylinder-selective combustion characteristics and cylinder momentum by comparing the models. (orig.)

    In hadron production data of the e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation experiments JADE and OPAL we measure the first five moments of twelve hadronic-event-shape variables at c.m. energies from 14 to 207 GeV. From the comparison of the QCD NLO prediction with the data corrected by means of MC models about hadronization we obtain the reference value of the strong coupling {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub Z{sup 0}})=0.1254{+-}0.0007(stat.){+-}0.0010(exp.){sup +0.0009}{sub -0.0023}(had.){sup +0.0069}{sub -0.0053}(theo.). For some, especially higher moments, systematic unsufficiencies in the QCD NLO prediction are recognizable. Simultaneous fits to two moments under assumption of identical renormalization scales yield scale values from x{sub {mu}}=0.057 to x{sub {mu}}=0.196. We check predictions of different non-perturbative models. From the single-dressed-gluon approximation a perturbative prediction in O({alpha}{sup 5}{sub s}) results with neglegible energy power correction, which describes the thrust average on hadron level well with {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub Z{sup 0}})=0.1186{+-}0,0017(exp.){sub -0.0028}{sup +0.0033}(theo.). The variance of the event-shape variable is measured and compared with models as well as predictions. [German] In Hadronproduktionsdaten der e{sup +}e{sup -}-Vernichtungsexperimente JADE und OPAL messen wir die ersten fuenf Momente von zwoelf hadronischen Ereignisformvariablen bei Schwerpunktsenergien von 14 bis 207 GeV. Aus dem Vergleich der QCD NLO-Vorhersage mit den mittels MC-Modellen um Hadronisierung korrigierten Daten erhalten wir den Referenzwert der starken Kopplung {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub Z{sup 0}})=0.1254{+-}0.0007(stat.){+-}0.0010(exp.){sup +0.0009}{sub -0.0023}(had.){sup +0.0069}{sub -0.0053}(theo.). Fuer einige, insbesondere hoehere, Momente sind systematische Unzulaenglichkeiten in der QCD NLO-Vorhersage erkenntlich. Simultane Fits an zwei Momente unter Annahme identischer Renormierungsskalen ergeben Skalenwerte von x{sub {mu}}=0.057 bis x{sub {mu}}=0.196. Wir pruefen Vorhersagen verschiedener nichtperturbativer Modelle. Aus der Single Dressed Gluon-Naeherung ergibt sich eine perturbative Vorhersage in O({alpha}{sup 5}{sub s}) mit zu vernachlaessigender Energiepotenzkorrektur, die den Mittelwert von Thrust auf Hadronniveau gut beschreibt mit {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub Z{sup 0}})=0.1186{+-}0.0007(stat.){+-}0.0017(exp.){sub -0.0028}{sup +0.0033}(theo.).

    The reaction p(e, e'p){pi}{sup 0} has been studied at Q{sup 2}=0.2 (GeV/c){sup 2} in the region of W=1232 MeV. From measurements left and right of (vector)q cross section asymmetries {rho}{sub LT} have been obtained in forward {rho}{sub LT}({theta}{sub {pi}{sup 0}}{sup cm}=20 )=(-11.68{+-}2.36{sub stat}{+-}2.36{sub sys}) and backward {rho}{sub LT}({theta}{sub {pi}}{sub {sup 0}}{sup cm}=160)=(12.18{+-}0.27{sub stat}{+-}0.82{sub sys}) {pi}{sup 0} kinematics, from which R{l_brace}S{sub 1+}{sup *}M{sub 1+}{r_brace}/ vertical stroke M{sub 1+} vertical stroke {sup 2} and R{l_brace}S{sub 0+}{sup *}M{sub 1+}{r_brace}/ vertical stroke M{sub 1+} vertical stroke {sup 2} could be determined. Using linear polarised tagged photon beams of energy up to E{sub {gamma}}{approx_equal}1.5 GeV the photon beam asymmetry {sigma} has been measured in the reaction p((vector){gamma}, {eta})p. Based on coherent bremsstrahlung off a diamond crystal a maximum polarisation of P{sub {gamma}}=49% has been achieved at E{sub {gamma}}=1305 MeV. The beam asymmetry has been extracted from the azimuthal modulation of the cross section using both decay modes of the {eta} into two photons and 3{pi}{sup 0}. Large asymmetries up to 80% are observed, in agreement with previous measurements where already available. There is also agreement with standard model calculations. However, the required partial waves to describe the measurements differ significantly. (orig.)

    A method for determining chromosomal aberrations was established for the purpose of examining the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of photon radiation with respect to mammary epithelium cells. Cells were exposed to 25 kV X-radiation and to 200 kV X-radiation for comparison and the resulting concentrations of chromosomal aberrations were compared. The RBE{sub M} value for radiation-induced fragmentation was found to be 4.2 {+-} 2.4, while the RBE{sub M} value for radiation-induced generation of dicentric chromosomes was found to be 0.5 {+-} 0.5. In addition to the evaluation of chromosomal aberrations the number of cell cycles undergone by the cells was monitored by means of BrDU staining. As expected, the proportion of cells which underwent more than one cell cycle following exposure to 5 Gy was very low in both cases, amounting to 1.9% (25 kV) and 3.2 (200 kV). Non-radiated cells yielded control values of 26.0% and 12.6%, suggesting variations in external conditions from day to day.

    In absorption refrigerating machines with the working-material pair water/lithium bromide usually falling-film apparatuses are applied as absorbers, evaporators, and condensers. These are often performed as horizontal tube bundes. As critical, the process limiting component in the literature the absorper is called, because of which the their running, coupled heat and material transport processes are more detailedly theoretically studied. For this a model was developed, which maps starting from analytically describable physical connections the transport processes in the apparatus. The flow in the tube bundle is hereby divided in two sections, the flow in the liquid film on the tubes and the drop fall between the tubes. The basic equations are numerically solved under given boundary conditions, whereby for the description of the drop fall phase addititonally semi-empirical calculation approaches are used. The results are elucidated by means of concentration and temperature profiles in the film. A distinctly faster formation of the temperature boundary layer than the concentration boundary layer in the fim is shown, which makes the material transport to the limiting transport process in the absorber, which is already known from experimental studies.The physical plausibility of the model is by means of this fact confirmed by an analysis of the coupled transport processes by means of dimensionless characteristic numbers. Furthermore from the results an improvement of the heat and material transport at diminishing of the tube diameter can be derived. Just so by the results of the study an estimation method for the quality of the absorber by means of the subcooling is shown.

    An introduction outlining the complex of problems and discussing the chosen method is followed by the development of a computerized simulation model. Starting from oil exploration, the whole process of opening, financing, production, and taxation of discovered North Sea oil fields is analysed and modelled up to the effects they have on the balance of payments. The statements are characterized by the opinion that even formalized, complex model relations can be delivered in a way which is intelligible to all. In the final part, predicted results are presented and discussed in detail, which were achieved under conditions alternatively assumed for the future on the basis of the model calculations. Furthermore, in the annexes flowcharts and the FORTRAN program of the model as well as comprehensive tables of results are shown. With this work, the author breaks through the narrow concept of a pure simulation model. For the first time he shows opportunities and limit, the set to the restoration of Britain's balance of payments by means of North Sea oil.

    Purpose: the purpose of this study was to optimize high-resolution MSCT chest protocols for the evaluation of symptomatic immunosuppressed patients with suspected pneumonia using a dose-simulating program. Materials and methods: using the MSCT (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany), 30 immunosuppressed patients with suspected pneumonia were examined with a low-dose HRCT of the chest (120 kV, 100 eff.mAs and collimation of 4 x 1 mm). A dose-simulating program was used to reconstruct the raw data at four different dose levels (70, 50, 35 und 25 mAs). For dose simulation for each mAs product, the correspondent noise level was added to the data. Images were generated with a slice thickness of 1 mm and 5 mm in the lung window. The images were then evaluated independently by two radiologists and graded on a scale of 1 to 3 points: 1 = no pneumonia, 2 = unclear, 3 = pneumonia. A receiver operating curve (ROC) analysis was performed to calculate the area under the curve (AUC). The actual dosage in mSv was calculated. The sensitivity and specificity were evaluated. Results: out of 30 patients, 7 had a normal chest finding and 23 had pneumonia. The area under the ROC curve (AUC) was 1.0 for every dosage and slice thickness. Infiltrates were detected correctly for all dosage levels. The sensitivity was 100% for all dose levels and slice thicknesses. There was one false positive finding at 35 mAs and 1 mm slice thickness. At this dose level the specificity was reduced to 93%. A reduction to 25 mAs had no influence on the detection of pneumonia. Thus, MSCT examinations of the chest can be performed with 25 mAs without missing the right diagnosis, resulting in an effective dose of 1.15 mSv (men), 1.5 mSv (women) and a CTDIvol of 2.5 mGy.

    The aim of this work is the development of a numerical process independent of the geometry of the flow space. The temperature, concentration and speed fields set up with double diffusive convection should be determined by this and their effect on heat transfer should be determined. The numerical process should be used for non-steady state double diffusive convection in various geometries. The results should be verified experimentally with the aid of holographic interferometry. (orig./IHL) [Deutsch] Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist die Entwicklung eines von der Geometrie des Stroemungsraumes unabhaengigen numerischen Verfahrens. Mit ihm sollen die sich bei doppelt diffusiver Konvektion einstellenden Temperatur-, Konzentrations- und Geschwindigkeitsfelder bestimmt und deren Einfluss auf die Waermeuebertragung ermittelt werden. Das numerische Verfahren soll auf die instationaere doppelt diffusive Konvektion in verschiedenen Geometrien angewendet werden. Die Ergebnisse sollen experimentell mit Hilfe der holographischen Interferometrie verifiziert werden. (orig./IHL)

    {sup 31}P magnetic resonance spectroscopy allows non-invasive evaluation of phosphorus metabolism in man. The purpose of the present study was to assess the influence of hyper- and hypothyroidism on the metabolism of resting human skeletal muscle. The present data show that quantitative measurement of phosphate metabolism by NMR is possible as also demonstrated by other studies. Using a quantitative evaluation method with an external standard, significant differences in the levels of phosphocreatine, adenosintriphosphate, and phosphodiesters were found. In hypothyroid patients a TSH-dependent increase in phosphodiesters and a decrease in adenosintriphosphate and phosphocreatine was observed. In hyperthyroidism a similar decrease in adenosintriphosphate but a considerably higher decrease in phosphocreatine occurred. In the light of the results of other studies of muscle matabolism, these changes appear to be non-specific so that further studies are required to assess the clinical value of such measurements.

    The project ''New Opportunities for Financing the Production of Renewable Energies in Agricultural Enterprises'' was supported by Rentenbank, the German promotional bank for the agricultural sector. In a first step data on the current state of biogas financing, on developments in the biogas sector as well as on problems and obstacles were collected via 39 expert interviews and an expert workshop in Frankfurt/Main on December 10{sup th}, 2009. Currently a boom in the biogas sector can be observed which will calm down according to the expectations of the interviewees. The market development is extremely dependent on the setting of the political framework. Different market segments have evolved (small-scale agricultural plants; mid-size plants; large-scale plants, increasingly with biogas feed-in), which will sustain. Long-term resource security constitutes a great risk for providers of capital especially in regions with high plant density. A couple of risk mitigation instruments have been developed, which are valued differently by different actors. Equity capital is a bottleneck especially for growing agricultural businesses and those farms which suffer from low producer prices. Debt capital is available only to a limited extent in some regions in Germany - which is not a special feature of biogas financing, but occurs here to an intensified degree. Equity capital by investors (''participation models'') is available in different forms to a sufficient extent. Equity providers in close relation with the agricultural sector or business are preferred, though. Project finance is increasingly used in connection with participation models and common-communal power plants. Other alternative financing solutions (leasing, contracting, mezzanine capital) are rarely applied. Cooperation models to build mid-size plants will play an increasing role in the future where equity constitutes a bottleneck or not sufficient liquidity exists and in regions with small business structures. Partnership models are preferred by interviewees for biogas plants with feed-in into the gas grid, i.e. common firms of farmers and energy utilities or a separation according to key competences (production of biogas by farmers, treatment of the raw biogas by utilities). Research needs are identified for the analysis of advantages and disadvantages of different cooperation models on the one hand and of different participation models (e.g. the inclusion of mezzanine capital) on the other hand.

    Intention of this investigation was the development of methods for microbiological in situ decontamination of hydrocarbon polluted subsoils as an alternative or completion of pump and treat techniques. The changes and limitations of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} as an oxygensource was investigated on soil filled fixed bed bioreactors. The aerobic biodegradation of mineraloil products is limited by the supply of oxygen up to a conversion of 70-80%. During this state the degradation rate depends strongly on the oxygen intake rate. The degree of oxygen consumption is close to the theoretical value with regard to total mineralization and build up to biomass. At conversions higher than 70-80% the degradation rate decreases sharply due to transition from 0- to C- limitation. First attempts to increase the degradation rate by increasing the bioavailability at this state were successful. The behaviour of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} during transportation in the subsoil depends strongly on biological and physical/chemical parameters. Little remobilization of heavy metals were observed at the transition from reduced to oxidized state. (orig.) With 28 refs., 11 tabs., 34 figs. [Deutsch] Vorhabens Ziel ist die Methodenentwicklung zur mikrobiologisch unterstuetzten in-situ Dekontamination kohlenwasserstoffverunreinigter Boeden als Alternative oder Ergaenzung von hydraulischen Massnahmen. Die Moeglichkeiten und Grenzen von H{sub 2}O{sub 2} als Sauerstofftraeger werden anhand von Laborstudien mit Bodenbioreaktoren dargestellt. Der aerobe Abbau von Mineraloelprodukten ist bis zu Umsaetzen von 70-80% sauerstofflimitiert. Die Geschwindigkeit laesst sich durch die Sauerstoffeintragsrate beeinflussen. Der O{sub 2}-Nutzungsgrad liegt dabei nahe am theoretischen Wert unter Beruecksichtigung weitgehender Mineralisierung und Biomassenbildung. Bei hoeheren Umsaetzen verringert sich die Abbaugeschwindigkeit deutlich aufgrund des Uebergangs von 0- zum C-limitierten Zustand. Erste Ansaetze, die Bioverfuegbarkeit zu erhoehen, wurden gefunden. Das Ausbreitungsverhalten von H{sub 2}O{sub 2} im Boden wird wesentlich durch biologische und chemisch/physikalische Parameter beeinflusst. Schwermetallmobilisierungen beim Uebergang vom reduzierten in den oxidierten Zustand wurden in geringem Umfang beobachtet. (orig.) With 28 refs., 11 tabs., 34 figs.

    Due to the extreme importance of natural gas as an energy source within an integrated energy policy and climate policy at national and European level, and due to the specific risks associated with the supply of natural gas, the contribution under consideration reports on the security of supply of natural gas. The following aspects are examined: To what extent are regulations on security of the natural gas supply provided in the German and European law. Which actors have the responsibility for the security of supply? What are the weaknesses in the legal arrangement of security of supply? The contribution also reports on the increasing importance of the EU as an actor of guarantee. The contribution of the EU to the security of supply in the supply of natural gas also is analysed.

    Extensive experiments on combustion of biological materials and residues in fluidized bed combustors and dust combustors have been carried out at the Department of Power Plant Engineering of Dresden University since the early nineties. Particular interest was taken in mixing brown coal with sewage sludge, sugar pulp and waste wood. The experiments were supplemented by modelling in a research project funded jointly by the BMBF and Messrs. Lurgi since early 1997. A combustion cell model designed by Siegen University is being modified for the new mixed fuels, and preliminary investigations were carried out on a batch reactor while the modelling work was continued. (orig.) [Deutsch] An dem Lehrstuhl fuer Kraftwerkstechnik der TU Dresden werden seit Anfang der 90-iger Jahre umfangreiche experimentelle Untersuchungen zur Verbrennung von Bio- und Reststoffen in Wirbelschicht- und Staubfeuerungen durchgefuehrt. Dabei war vor allem die Zufeuerung dieser Stoffe in Waermeerzeugeranlagen auf Braunkohlenbasis von besonderem Interesse. Experimentell konnte nachgewiesen werden, dass sowohl Biobrennstoffe als auch Abfaelle in zirkulierenden Wirbelschichtfeuerungen umweltschonend zur Waermeerzeugung eingesetzt werden koennen. Als Beispiel wird das an Hand von Braunkohle-Klaerschlammgemischen sowie Bagasse- und Holz-Braunkohlegemischen gezeigt. Neben den experimentellen Untersuchungen bietet die Modellierung der Verbrennungsvorgaenge ein geeignetes Mittel um Voraussagen zu anderen Mischungsanteilen sowie anderen geometrischen Abmessungen machen zu koennen. Seit Anfang 1997 wird dazu ein vom BMBF und der Firma Lurgi gefoerdertes Forschungsvorhaben bearbeitet. Ein von der Universitaet Gesamthochschule Siegen fuer die Braunkohleverbrennung konzipiertes Zellenmodell wird auf die neuen Brennstoffgemische erweitert. Da grundsaetzlich andere Stoffzusammensetzungen vorliegen, wurden an einem Batch-Reaktor Voruntersuchungen zum Pyrolyseverhalten der Brennstoffe durchgefuehrt. Erste durchgefuehrte Testrechnungen liegen vor. Die Arbeiten am Modell sind aber noch im vollen Gange. (orig.)

  19. A new backscatter lidar for the whole-year study of temperatures and clouds in the polar stratosphere and mesosphere; Ein neues Rueckstreu-Lidar zur ganzjaehrigen Untersuchung von Temperaturen und Wolkenphaenomenen in der polaren Strato- und Mesosphaere

    Temperatures in the polar middle atmosphere can fall to extremely low values leading to cloud formation in otherwise cloud-free regions: in summer near the mesopause i.e. noctiluent clouds (NLC) and in winter in the lower stratosphere, i.e. polar stratospheric clouds (PSC). Both clouds are environmentally important, PSCs in the ozone problem and NLCs as early indicators of climate change. To investigate these clouds and to measure temperature profiles the atmospheric physics group set up a backscatter lidar on the Esrange in northern Sweden. Based on our experience with a lidar in Norway the mechanics and optics were redesigned to allow for simultaneous measurements of the depolarization of the backscattered light, three colour measurements and measurements in daylight. A numerical simulation of the daylight filter characteristics suggests that the presently used tuning method should be replaced. The first measurements with this new lidar design on the Esrange were obtained in January 1997. PSCs were observed on 19 days from January to March. Surprisingly, PSCs of type 2 were detected several times even when though synoptic stratospheric temperatures were too warm for such clouds to exist. Temperatures in the lee of the Scandinavian mountains had been lowered by internal waves sufficiently to generate PSC type 2 clouds. Among the previous PSC-observations in January 1995 when the lidar was located on the Norwegian island Andoeya was a singular PSC of type 2 on on January 14, 1995, which had a surface area density two orders of magnitudes higher than typically assumed in theoretical models describing ozone depletion.

  1. A4F-SAXS online-coupling for the investigation of nanoparticles and polymers; Die A4F-SAXS Online-Kopplung zur Untersuchung von Nanopartikeln und Polymeren

    Knappe, Patrick

    2012-07-13

    In the present thesis the online-coupling of asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation (A4F) with small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) as a versatile analytical tool is introduced and applied to current challenges in nanoparticle analysis as well as to model systems of technically relevant polymers. The A4F provides size separation of sample solutions and suspensions. Due to the separation principle only low shear forces are applied which appear in competing methods. Therefore, this method allows processing of very sensitive sample materials. SAXS allows non-destructive probing of nanoscale structures in the range of about one to one hundred nanometers. By coupling with A4F, the complexity of sample systems with broad size distributions, which are therefore frequently hard to characterize, is reduced significantly prior to further analysis. Applying this approach, detailed information about sample properties can be gained accurately with respect to the shape, size and size distribution of particles or conformation of macromolecules in short time. Addition of a dynamic light scattering detector to the setup allows a further conclusion. With the latter, a nanoparticles suspension was characterized rapidly and with good precision with respect to the core properties of the particles as well as the thickness of the stabilizer's shell in a single online run. These parameters are important when dealing not only with functionality but also with the bioavailability or toxicity of nanoparticles. This methodology was also successfully applied to polymer systems for the first time, namely poly(vinyl pyrrolidone)s as well as strong and weak polyelectrolytes. Additionally, due to the applied separation method samples with broad molar mass distributions were processable which otherwise tend to interfere with stationary phase-based chromatography. Furthermore, using SAXS, structural properties can be resolved from smaller polymer size-fractions which are hardly accessible with other standardly used methods.

    This report presents investigations on the mechanism of two different types of solid-state reactions: At first, barium titanate nanopowders were prepared through a combined polymerization and pyrolysis of a metallo-organic precursor. The mean particle size d{sub m} could be adjusted by choosing appropriate reaction temperatures and tempering atmospheres. In the present in situ study of this particular solid-phase reaction, X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectroscopy at the Ti K and Ba L{sub 3}-edges was applied in the preparation route of BaTiO{sub 3} nanopowders. A pronounced distortion of the lattice symmetry was found to occur in very fine BaTiO{sub 3} nanopowders (d{sub m} < 20 nm). Secondly, in situ XANES investigations were carried out at the Cl K, Pd L{sub 3}, Rh L{sub 3}, and Pt L{sub 3}-edges to study the mechanism of the thermal decomposition of ammonium hexachlorometallates. The results exceed structural information obtained by in situ X-ray diffraction methods and thermal analysis. Feff8 multiple scattering simulations have been carried out to disclose new intermediate phases of unknown reference compounds. (orig.)

    SAPHIR, a new experiment at the Bonn electron stretcher ring ELSA, started taking data in spring 1992. It was set up for the investigation of photon induced reactions with multiparticle final states. In the first part of this paper the special design of the target is described. It can be operated with liquefied hydrogen or deuterium and is placed in the middle of the central drift chamber. To project the surrounding chamber in case of a fracture of the target cell as safety system is installed. In addition two independent methods of monitoring the cell are procided. The first measurement was performed with a deuterium target at a photon energy range of E{sub {gamma}} = 500-700 MeV. In the second part of this paper first results of an analysis of the decay angular distribution of the {Delta}{sup ++}(1232) in the reaction {gamma}d {yields} n{Delta}{sup ++}{pi}{sup -} are presented. They are compared to old data from a hydrogen bubble chamber experiment and are discussed on the basis of a spectator model. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Rahmen dieser Arbeit ist der Aufbau eines Fluessiggas-Targets beschrieben worden, das speziell fuer den Einsatz im SAPHIR-Detektor entwickelt worden ist. Es wurden Funktionen zur Ueberwachung der Targetzelle vorgestellt und ein Sicherheitssystem zum Schutz der zentralen Driftkammer, die das Target unmittelbar umgibt. Weiterhin ist in Simulationsrechnungen untersucht worden, welchen Einfluss die Konstruktion des Targetstreutopfes auf die Messung unterschiedlicher Reaktionen haben kann. Dabei sind bei 50% bis 70% der Ereignisse Treffer in den Aluminiumstuetzen des Targetstreutopfes aufgetreten. Diese starke Beeintraechtigung kann durch eine Neukonstruktion des Streutopfes und der Verwendung von z.B. Rohazell als Streutopffenster vermieden werden. Rohazell zeichnet sich durch eine hohe Festigkeit und grosse Strahlungslaenge aus. An der Neukonstruktion des Streutopfes wird z.Z. gearbeitet. Der zweite Teil der Arbeit beschreibt eine der ersten Messungen an fluessigem Deuterium und im Anschluss daran eine Analyse der Reaktion {gamma}d {yields} pn{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} unter dem Aspekt der Zerfallswinkelverteilung der {Delta}{sup ++}(1232)-Resonanz. Zur Bestimmung der Detektorakzeptanz wurde eine modellabhaengige Simulationsrechnung mit dem Programm SAPHIR-GEANT durchgefuehrt. Das benutzte Modell basiert auf dem Zuschauermodell mit einem starken Einfluss des Kontaktgraphen {gamma}d {yields} n{sub s}{Delta}{sup ++}{pi}{sup -}. Die im Modell verwendete Winkelverteilung fuer den Zerfall der {Delta}-Resonanz ist in Anlehnung an aeltere Messungen am Proton mit W(cos{theta}) = 5 - 3 * cos{sup 2}{theta}) angenommen worden. Mit diesem Modell konnten die gemessenen Daten gut beschrieben werden. Unterschiede in der Zerfallswinkelverteilung zwischen den gemessenen und berechneten Daten unter dem Winkel {theta}{sup J} {approx} 90 sind moeglicherweise ein Indiz fuer Endzustandwechselwirkungen, die im reinen Zuschauermodell nicht beruecksichtigt werden.

    In the scope of the acquisition of the gas company Ruhrgas AG by the power company E.ON AG in the year 2002, it became conscious to the publicity that participations of minorities have an impact on the German electric power industry. Due to the negative consequences of this acquisition, the Federal Office of Fair Trading and the Commission of Monopoly pronounced itself against this corporate merger. Under this aspect, the author of the contribution under consideration reports on an investigation how the trade-distorting consequences of vertical strategic participations of minorities could be controlled. First of all, the author describes the practical occurrence, the typical layout and the current evaluation of the merger directive of vertical strategic participations. Then, the current applications of trust prohibitions according to the acquisition of corporate interests are described. The author tries to get an answer to the question whether vertical participations fulfil the facts of trust prohibitions. This investigation has shown that the acquisition of participations of minorities off ends against trust prohibitions. In contrast to the past, the acquisition of such participations is to be examined not only on the basis of the regulations of fusion control but also according to the standards of trust prohibitions. Altogether nineteen thesis are named according to the subsequent aspect: (a) practical occurrence of vertical strategic participations of minorities; (b) competitional consequences of participations; (c) existence of an agreement or harmonized behaviour as well as a relationship between agreement and restraint of competition; (d) limits of the applicability of trust prohibitions.

  15. Study on the production of charged and neutral kaons in Au+Au at 1.23A GeV with HADES; Untersuchung zur Produktion von geladenen und neutralen Kaonen in Au+Au bei 1.23A GeV mit HADES

    In April and May 2012, 7.3 . 10{sup 9} Au+Au collisions at a kinetic beam energy of E{sub kin}=1.23 GeV per nucleon have been recorded by the HADES detector, installed at the Helmholtzzentrum fuer Schwerionenforschung (GSI) at Darmstadt, Germany. Based on this experiment, this thesis focuses on the reconstruction of lightest strangeness containing mesons, such as K{sup +}, K{sup -} and K{sup 0}. Due to their production far below the threshold energy in nucleon-nucleon collisions, particles carrying strangeness have turned out to be very valuable messengers for the state of nuclear matter under extreme conditions. The K{sup 0}/K{sup +} production ratio in isospin asymmetric relativistic heavy-ion collisions has been suggested as a promising observable for the symmetry energy term of the nuclear equation of state. However, the high density behavior of the symmetry energy is at present largely unconstrained. Measurements of the K{sup 0}/K{sup +} ratio in the high density region are now possible with the HADES detector. In addition, the production rates of the different kaons provide information about their production mechanism and propagation in the baryon dominated matter. The results, presented in this thesis, are derived from an analysis of the total statistics of the April and May 2012 measuring campaign. The charged kaons are identified via cuts on their quality of the track reconstruction, their energy loss in multi-wire drift chambers distribution and their reconstructed momentum. In the analysis of the statistics a total of 3.6.10{sup 6} positively charged kaons and 1.1.10{sup 4} negatively charged kaons were reconstructed. For small polar angles of the detector (18 {sup circle} -45 {sup circle}, Resistive Plate Chamber wall), the signal of K{sup +} has been found to be at a mass of M=(488.8±0.7) MeV/c{sup 2} with a width of σ=(17.4±2.2) MeV/c{sup 2}. At large polar angles (44 {sup circle} -85 {sup circle}, Time of Flight wall) a mass of M=(501.6±0.5) MeV/c{sup 2} with a width of σ=(28.7±1.6) MeV/c{sup 2} was identified. Up to now, the negatively charged kaons could only be identified at small polar angles of the detector. The width of the K{sup -} signal was determined to be σ(14.8±0.8) MeV/c{sup 2}. The neutrally charged kaons were reconstructed via their decay products π{sup +} and π{sup -} by using the invariant mass method. The charged pions were selected by applying cuts on their track reconstruction quality as well as the velocity in the momentum spectrum. For background rejection in the K{sub S}{sup 0} signal region, topological cuts on the decay and production vertices were used. The combinatorial background is described by an exponential or polynomial function. Within this analysis, 7.1.10{sup 4} K{sub S}{sup 0}-mesons have been reconstructed with a signal-to-background ratio of 16.5, with a mass peak at M=(493.2±0.4) MeV/c{sup 2} and a width of σ=(10.8±1.0) MeV/c{sup 2}. Using the UrQMD and GEANT simulation packages with an equivalently composed dataset tested by the same analysis strategy, the identified kaons could be corrected for the detector acceptance as well as the detector, cut and reconstruction efficiencies. Therefore, the production rates of kaons per heavy-ion collision resulted in (1.6±0.4).10{sup -3} for K{sup +}, (4.5±1.0).10{sup -5} for K{sup -} and (7.5±0.6).10{sup -4} for K{sub S}{sup 0}. The preliminary K{sup 0}/K{sup +} and K{sup -}/K{sup +} particle ratios were found to be 0.94±0.30 and (2.82±1.29).10{sup -2}, correspondingly, and lie in the order of the expected values as predicted by the statistical hadronization model and the microscopic transport model. Final conclusions, however, can only be drawn when further improvements will be realized in the future, such as final detector calibration, track reconstruction and an improved description of detector performance in the simulation.

    H{sup +} and He{sup +} ions with an energy of 25 keV are scattered under a grazing angle of incidence from a clean and flat Cu(001) surface. For specific azimuthal orientations of the crystal surface with respect to low index directions in the surface plane we observe the ion induced emission of electrons with a conventional LEED (low energy electron diffraction) setup. By operating the instrument in an energy dispersive mode we find intensity distributions of emitted electrons which can unequivocally be ascribed to diffraction effects at the target surface. From this ion induced LEED-reflexes (IILEED) we get important information about the electron excitation- and emission effects during the scattering process. In the second part of this work we investigate the correlation between thin-film growth (Co,Fe,Mn on Cu(001)) and electron emission in the regime of grazing ion scattering. The ''rough'' surface of uncompleted layers increase the probability of binary collisions of incident ions with individual atoms at the surface. The energy spectras and the number distribution of emitted electrons are substantially influenced by these ''violent'' collisions and allow us to monitor growth of thin films via simple measurements of target current or from energy spectra of emitted electrons. The method provides excellent signals and is also applicable in the regime of poor layer growth. By making use of ion beam triangulation (IBT), direct information on the atomic structure of thin films and substrate surfaces is obtained. We discuss in the third part of this work a new variant of this method based on the detection of the number of emitted electrons. The data are analyzed via computer simulations using classical mechanics which provides a quantitative analysis with respect to projectile trajectories. This new detection scheme allows the determination of the in-plane structure of reconstructed thin films and surfaces with high precision. The impressed potential of this method is demonstrated by quantitative analysis of the structural phases of Fe and Mn on Cu(001). (orig.)

  17. Investigation of the local fracture toughness and the elastic-plastic fracture behavior of NiAl and tungsten by means of micro-cantilever tests; Untersuchung der lokalen Bruchzaehigkeit und des elastisch-plastischen Bruchverhaltens von NiAl und Wolfram mittels Mikrobiegebalkenversuchen

    The objective of this work was to get an improved understanding of the size dependence of the fracture toughness. For this purpose notched micro-cantilevers were fabricated ranging in dimensions from the submicron regime up to some tens of microns by means of a focused ion beam. B2-NiAl and tungsten were chosen as model materials as their brittle to ductile transition temperatures are well above room temperature. In that way, fracture processes accompanied by limited plastic deformation around the crack tip could be studied at the micro scale. For this size regime, new methods to describe the local elastic-plastic fracture behavior and to measure the fracture toughness were elaborated. Particular focus was set on the J-integral concept which was adapted to the micro scale to derive crack growth from stiffness measurements. This allowed a precise analysis of the transition from crack tip blunting to stable crack growth which is necessary to accurately measure the fracture toughness. Experiments in single crystalline NiAl showed for the two investigated crack systems, namely the hard and the soft orientation, that the fracture toughness at the micro scale is the same as the one known from macroscopic testing. Thus, size effects were not found for the tested length scale. The addition of little amounts of iron did not affect the fracture toughness considerably. Yet, it influenced the crack growth in those samples and consequently the resistance curve behavior. Concerning experiments in single crystalline tungsten, the fracture toughness showed a clear dependency on sample size. The smallest cantilevers fractured purely by cleavage. Larger samples exhibited stable crack growth along with plastic deformation which was recognizable in SEM-micrographs and quantified by means of EBSD measurements. Just as in macroscopic testing, the investigated crack system <100>{100} demonstrated a dependency on loading rate with higher loading rates leading to a more brittle behavior. This is linked to the thermally activated dislocation mobility which is more constrained in those samples. Investigations on plastically predeformed samples were performed in order to study the influence of the dislocation density on the fracture behavior. It was found that the fracture toughness was again not affected but that the predeformed samples failed at an earlier stage at lower J-integrals. This is due to the lower mobility of the dislocations emitted from the crack tip in consequence of the high amount of strain hardening and the higher flow stress in those samples. Experiments in ultrafine-grained tungsten revealed a fracture behavior which was more brittle than expected. A single grain at the crack front with its crystallographic orientation being prone to cleavage failure can decisively influence the fracture behavior at the micro scale. [German] Das Ziel dieser Arbeit war es, ein verbessertes Verstaendnis fuer die Groessenabhaengigkeit der Bruchzaehigkeit zu gewinnen. Hierfuer wurden mittels fokussierter Ionenstrahlen gekerbte Mikrobiegebalken in verschiedenen Groessen vom Submikrometerbereich bis hin zu einigen 10 μm in B2-NiAl und Wolfram praepariert. Diese beiden Materialien besitzen charakteristische Sproed-Duktil-Uebergange, die oberhalb der Raumtemperatur liegen. Dies erlaubte es, Bruchvorgaenge, welche von begrenzter plastischer Verformung um die Rissspitze begleitet werden, auf der Mikroskala zu untersuchen. Neue Methoden zur Beschreibung und Bestimmung des lokalen elastisch-plastischen Bruchverhaltens bzw. der Bruchzaehigkeit wurden hierfuer erarbeitet. Im Speziellen wurde das J-Integral-Konzept zur Ermittlung von Rissfortschritt ueber Steifigkeitsmessungen auf die Mikroskala uebertragen. Dies ermoeglichte eine praezise Analyse des fuer die Bruchzaehigkeit charakteristischen Uebergangs von Rissabstumpfung zu stabilem Rissfortschritt. Die Versuche an einkristallinem NiAl fuer die beiden untersuchten Risssysteme der harten und weichen Orientierung ergaben Bruchzaehigkeiten, welche in guter Uebereinstimmung mit Literaturdaten aus makroskopischen Versuchen sind. Ein Groesseneffekt wurde somit auf der untersuchten Skala nicht gefunden. Eine Zugabe von geringen Mengen an Eisen zu den Einkristallen wirkte sich nicht merklich auf die Bruchzaehigkeit, jedoch auf den Rissfortschritt und folglich auf die Risswiderstandskurven aus. Bei Wolfram zeigten Versuche an Einkristallen eine klare Abhaengigkeit der Bruchzaehigkeit von der Probengroesse, wobei die kleinsten Proben rein sproede versagten. Die an Hand von REM-Bildern beobachtete plastische Verformung in den groesseren Biegebalken wurde durch EBSD-Messungen quantifiziert. Ebenso wie auf der Makroskala zeigte das untersuchte Risssystem <100>{100} eine Belastungsratenabhaengigkeit. So wurde bei groesseren Belastungsraten wegen der eingeschraenkteren thermischen Versetzungsbeweglichkeit ein sproederes Versagen festgestellt. Untersuchungen an plastisch vorverformten Proben zum Einfluss der Versetzungsdichten auf das Bruchverhalten ergaben die gleichen Bruchzaehigkeiten. Allerdings versagten die Proben vorzeitig bei niedrigeren J-Integralen. Dies wurde mit der geringen Mobilitaet der von der Rissspitze emittierten Versetzungen in Folge von starker Kaltverfestigung sowie erhoehter Fliessspannung in den Proben erklaert. Experimente an ultrafeinkoernigem Wolfram zeigten, dass die Proben sproeder als erwartet versagten. Dies wurde darauf zurueckgefuehrt, dass auf der Mikroskala ein an der Rissfront guenstig fuer Spaltbruch liegendes Korn den Bruchvorgang bereits entscheidend beeinflusst.

    This publication reports on how the steadily increasing costs caused by the Renewable Energy Law (EEG) have brought the German strategy for the expansion of renewable energies under criticism. According to theories of regulatory economic policy, which state that politico-economic incentives of this kind must necessarily result in an inefficient allocation of scarce resources, this cost increase can be interpreted as a direct consequence of the price intervention. The present publication takes a critical stance on this viewpoint, developing for its purpose a new position on regulatory policy referred to as the evolutionary cybernetic theory of economic policy. It starts out from the works of F.A. von Hayek, which it then takes a significant step further however. The author argues that price interventions can be meaningful strategies of economic policy as long as they are aimed at a temporary initiation of market development towards sustainability and efficiency. Based on this model conception of a shrewd pricing strategy the publication undertakes an analysis from the perspective of regulatory policy of the German subsidisation of renewable energies. In the process it not only reveals errors in design of the EEG but also makes a proposal for an amendment that could be effective in cutting through the present price dynamics. In presenting its recommendation of a self-steering expansion policy the publication not only contributes to the further development of an evolutionary cybernetic theory of economic policy but addresses the urgent problem of how to wisely use regulatory policy to create pricing strategies which serve the expansion of renewable energies.

  19. Examination of the anisotropy of the wetting behaviour of liquid Al-Cu alloys on single crystalline oriented Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-substrates; Untersuchung der Anisotropie im Benetzungsverhalten fluessiger Al-Cu Legierungen auf einkristallinen orientierten Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Substraten

    The wetting behaviour of liquid Al-Cu alloys and pure metals on oriented single crystalline Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-substrates was examined, utilising the sessile drop technique. Measurements were performed at moderate temperatures of 1100 C, where the alloys are liquid. Different Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-surfaces were studied, which are terminated by the crystallographic planes (0001), (11 anti 20), and (1 anti 102), also called C-, A-, and R-surfaces. After deposition, pure Cu-droplets show an exponential increase of the wetting angle to a value of about 115 for all investigated Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-surfaces. The timescale of this increase is of the order of 100 s. The effect of surface- and interfacial energies on the wetting angle is discussed considering Young's equation. The most probable reason for its time-dependence seems to be an increase of the interfacial energy due to deoxidation of the droplet. Therefore it is reasonable to regard the isotropic contact angle value as the intrinsic one of the Cu/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} system. In contrast, the wetting angle of pure Al metal with the different Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-substrates shows a qualitatively different behaviour. In this system, it rises from about 90 to 115 roughly for C-substrates, twice as fast as in the Cu case but to a comparable value. On the other substrates a wetting angle of about 90 establishes immediately, and no pronounced time dependence is obvious. In order to study changes in the wetting behaviour of Al-Cu-alloys, which is isotropic for Cu and anisotropic for Al-rich alloys, contact angles of Al{sub 50}Cu{sub 50}, Al{sub 30}Cu{sub 70} und Al{sub 17}Cu{sub 83} on Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} were determined. For each alloy composition the wetting angle is about 120 after 300 s. The initial values on distinct surfaces hardly differ and become non-wetting with increasing Cu-content. Hence, anisotropy decreases. To determine the work of adhesion of the solid-liquid interface, the temperature- and composition-dependence of the surface tension of Al-Cu-alloys was also measured. For each alloy composition the temperature-dependence of the surface tension can be described by a linear decrease, which is most pronounced for alloys with lower Al-contents and smallest for medium ones. From the surface tension data and wetting angles the concentration-dependence of the work of adhesion within the Al-Cu/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-system at 1100 C was calculated. On reconstructed C-substrates it decreases, when Al-contents rises up to 50 at.% and remains constant for higher Al-percentages. On all other surfaces, including non-reconstructed C-surfaces, the work of adhesion seems to be independent of alloy composition, but a slight increase might also be identified, again occurring mainly at lower Al-concentrations. The anisotropy of the work of adhesion is about 50% for Al-rich alloys and therefore significant. The observed behaviour of the wetting angle and work of adhesion suggests segregation of Al at surface and interface of the droplet. Due to the strong interaction of Al with O, segregation is most pronounced at interfaces with O-rich Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-surfaces, which are A-, R-, and also non-reconstructed C-planes. (orig.)

    In the present work single crystals of the tetraborides of chromium and manganese have been grown and allowed a structure refinement of the compounds. Furthermore the physical characteristics for example hardness, electronic properties and magnetism were been determined. Also the ternary tetraboride phase of chromium and manganese was synthesized and a new ternary rhenium manganese diboride could be obtained.

    In addition to load cycles in the Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF)-regime due to start up and shut down procedures of power plants, in some components additional high-frequency loadings in the High Cycle Fatigue (HCF)- and Very High Cycle Fatigue (VHCF)-regime occur. These loadings are induced e.g. by stresses due to thermal cyclic fluctuations and fluid dynamic processes. Therefore it is necessary to characterize experimentally the cyclic deformation behavior of metastable austenitic steels at operating temperature particularly in the HCF- and VHCF-regime and to develop a nondestructive method to detect fatigue processes. This joint research project was conducted in cooperation between the Institute of Materials Science and Engineering (WKK) of the University of Kaiserslautern and the Fraunhofer-Institute for Non-Destructive Testing (IZFP) in Saarbruecken. WKK was focused on experimental investigations to characterize the cyclic deformation behavior of the metastable austenitic steel in the HCF- and VHCF-range, taking into account cyclic hardening and softening processes and in particular to consider fatigue-induced changes in microstructure. The IZFP has focused on the development and application of a testing concept based on electromagnetic ultrasonic measurements. The isothermal cyclic deformation behavior of the metastable austenitic steel X6CrNiNb1810 (1.4550, AISI 347) at 300 C in the HCF-range is characterized by cyclic softening until specimen failure. At strain amplitudes of 0.10 % ≤ ε{sub a,t} ≤ 0.15 % and the stress amplitude σ{sub a} = 160 MPa cyclic softening is followed by cyclic hardening, which results in a significant increase in life time, up to the limiting number of cycles, which was defined at N{sub I} = 10{sup 7} in HCF-regime. The cyclic hardening is determined by a transformation induced phase formation from face-centered cubic (fcc) austenite to body-centered cubic (bcc) α{sup '}-martensite and/or in hexagonal (hcp) ε-martensite. In the VHCF-range also transformation induced martensite formation is observed. This transformation leads to the achievement of the limiting number of cycles N{sub I} = 5.10{sup 8} in the VHCF-range. The fatigue-related material behavior is characterized by microstructural investigations on light and scanning electron microscopy as well as by X-ray and transmission electron microscopic investigations. The focus of these studies is the transformation induced martensite formation, which significantly affects the cyclic deformation behavior and increases significantly the life time.

    In the course of examination of the positron and positron-electron pair emission from heavy ion collisions at the Coulomb barrier, the research groups EPOS I and ORANGE have found a number of line structures in the measured positron energy and cumulative pair energy spectra which up to present could not be fully explained, as theoretical interpretations so far remain inconsistent in some respects. For clarification, further measurements have been made at the completely new designed EPoS II spectrometer. Reproducibility of the lines is possible at a high level of statistical significance. (orig./CB) [Deutsch] Bei Untersuchungen der Positron- und Positron- Elektron- Paaremissionaus Schwerionenkollisionen an der Coulombbarriere wurde von den Gruppen EPOS I und ORANGE eine Reihe von Linienstrukturen in den gemessenen Positronenenergie- und Paarsummenenergiespektren beobachtet, fuer die bislang keine in allen Punkten konsistente, theoretische Erklaerunggefunden werden konnte. Um ihre Ursachen zu klaeren, wurden mit dem voellig neu aufgebauten EPoS II Spektrometer weitere Messreihen durgefuehrt. Die Reproduzierbarkeit der Linien ist auf einem hohen statistischen Signifikanzniveau moeglich.

    An improved version of the wheat model demeter including modules for important and commonly usable ecosystem compartments (i) light interception in homogenous and rowed canopies (ii) energy and gas exchange including photosynthesis (iii) water, temperature, carbon and nitrogen dynamics in mineral soils was developed. Due to the generic properties of the detailed model solutions qualitative and quantitative explanations about direct and indirect impacts of elevated atmospheric CO{sub 2} concentrations on Graminaceae (C{sub 3}-Type) under limited water and nitrogen supply are possible. These solutions have been tested under a wide range of geographic (33 bis 52 N), soil and climatic conditions. The model was validated on a wide spectrum of temporal (time steps ranging from one minute up to one day, simulation periods ranging from several hours to several years) and spatial scales (Submodel photosynthesis of leaf level, the entire model on canopy level, regional yield studies for the entire State of Brandenburg).

Durch den generischen Charakter der detaillierten Modelloesungen sind qualitative und quantitative Aussagen zu direkten und indirekten Auswirkungen erhoehter atmosphaerischer CO{sub 2}-Konzentrationen auf Graminaceae des C{sub 3}-Typs bei Wasser- und Stickstofflimitierung unter breiteren geographischen (33 bis 52 N), Boden- und klimatischen Bedingungen moeglich. Das Modell wurde auf einem breiten Spektrum zeitlicher (Taktzeiten von einer Minute bis zu einem Tag, Simulationszeiten von mehreren Stunden bis zu mehreren Jahren) und raeumlicher Skalen (Teilmodell Photosynthese auf Blattniveau, Gesamtmodell auf Bestandesniveau, regionale Ertragsstudie fuer das gesamte Land Brandenburg) getestet.

    Die kohärente Teilchenproduktion in hadronischen Z-Zerfällen mit drei Jets im Endzustand wird anhand von mit dem DELPHI-Experiment in den Jahren 1992-1995 aufgenommenen Daten untersucht. Die unter großem Winkel zur Ereignisebene gemessene Multiplizität ist in guter Übereinstimmung mit einer Vorhersage in führender Ordnung. Es wird gezeigt, dass zur Beschreibung der Daten ein negativer Interferenzterm notwendig ist. Ein Skalieren der Impulsverteilungen der unter großem Winkel produzierten Teilchen wird für Impulse unter ca. 1GeV beobachtet, wodurch die lokale Parton-Hadron Dualitätshypothese (LPHD) bestätigt wird. Es wird eine gute Beschreibung der in Dreijetereignissen gemessenen Gesamtmultiplizität durch eine MLLA-Vorhersage beobachtet. Eine Parameteranpassung der Vorhersage an die Daten ergibt das Farbfaktorverhältnis CA/CF = 2.261 ± 0.014(stat.) ± 0.036(syst.) ± 0.052(theor.) ± 0.041(clus.), welches die bislang präziseste Messung dieses Wertes darstellt.

    T[sub 2]-weighted spin-echo imaging is the standard screening procedure in MR imaging of the neutrocranium. We evaluated fast spin-echo T[sub 2]-weighted imaging (TT[sub 2]) of the neurocranium in comparison to conventional spin-echo T[sub 2]-weighted imaging (T[sub 2]). Signal-to-noise and contrast-to-noise ratio of normal brain tissues (basal ganglia, grey and white matter, CSF fluid) and different pathologies were calculated. Signal-to-noise ratio and contrast-to-noise ratio were significantly higher than TT[sub 2] than in T[sub 2] (with the exception of grey-to-white matter contrast). Tissues with increased content of water protons (mobile protons) showed the highest contrast to surrounding tissues. The increased signal intensity of fat must be given due attention in fatty lesions. Because the contrast-to-noise ratio between white matter and basal ganglia is less in TT[sub 2], Parkinson patients have to be examined by conventional T[sub 2]. If these limitations are taken into account, fast spin-echo T[sub 2]-weighted imaging is well appropriate for MR imaging of the neurocranium, resulting in heavy T[sub 2]-weighting achieved in a short acquisition time.

    A version of the demeter model was developed which describes both the quantitative and qualitative effects of elevated atmospheric CO{sub 2} on a wheat crop under conditions of limited water and/or nitrogen supply. In the model`s photosynthesis and energy balance modules, first versions of components were developed which it should be possible to apply in further ecosystem models (starting with the cereals models of the demeter family). Experimental data from the Maricopa FACE wheat experiments 1992-1996, in which scientists from PIK were involved, were used for the development and testing of the model. Model solutions obtained were applied for the first time of central European climatic and site conditions as part of a regional yield study for the Federal State of Brandenburg. (orig.)

    The current energy concept of Sachsen-Anhalt dates back to 2004. Since then, boundary conditions have changed. International energy markets are characterized by growing demand and rising energy prices. This has influenced Germany as well. Further, sustainable power supply and global climate change have become relevant issues during the past few years. Against this background, Sachsen-Anhalt intends to modify its energy concept. The first step will be the provision of a current information and data base on all aspects of world, national and state energy supply and all relevant boundary conditions. The 'Energiestudie 2007' was prepared by Institut fuer Energetik und Umwelt gGmbH. The contents are based on current studies and investigations. The 'Energiestudie' will provide an information base which may be maintained and updated by actors of Sachsen-Anhalt. (orig.)

    The influences of the polarization of ferroelectric Pb(Zr{sub 0.52}Ti{sub 0.48})O{sub 3} (PZT) films on the properties of YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub x} (YBCO) films were investigated in ferroelectric superconducting field effect transistors (FSuFETs). First the epitaxial growth of PZT films deposited by reactive sputtering in an argon/oxygen atmosphere was investigated. SrTiO{sub 3} single crystals and YBCO thin films proved as suitable substrates. The lead content of the PZT films depended sensitively on the deposition temperature T{sub s} and the gas pressure. By using a high pressure of 0.26 mbar the correct stoichiometry could be achieved up to an maximum T{sub s} of 580 C. Above a minimum T{sub s} of 540 C the ferroelectric perovskite structure grew. In the optimum temperature range between 560 C and 580 C the films grew with a minimum mosaic spread of {delta}{omega} < 0.3 and a small amount of less than 1% of paraelectric phase. The best ferroelectric properties could be obtained for films with the highest degree of epitaxy and the correct stoichiometry. The maximum remanent polarization amounted P{sub r} = 61 {mu}C/cm{sup 2} and the coercive field E{sub C} was 150 kV/cm at 77 K. The breakdown field was four to five times larger than E{sub C}. Fatigue studies revealed a loss of switchable polarization of 30% after 10{sup 8} cycles at 77 K, whereas loss of retention and the effect of ageing were negligible. During the process of oxidation of the heterostructure at 400 C and an oxygen pressure of 800 mbar a reaction at the PZT/YBCO interface was observed, which lead to a degradation of the transport properties of the superconductor. This reaction could be avoided by a thin SrTiO{sub 3} buffer layer without disturbing the ferroelectric hysteresis essentially.

    A functioning infrastructure has always been a prerequisite for economic and social development. But the local power supply is in an area of conflict between European law, energy law and antitrust rules. The municipalities engage in a periodic competition in order to guarantee a local network infrastructure. At the same time, an increasing political design intent of the citizens is loomed. Under this aspect, the authors of the contribution under consideration report on a critical, legal and in parts economic investigation of the existing legal framework for the operation of local electricity and gas distribution networks. In particular, the legal regulation of concession right in paragraph 46 EnWG (Energy Economic Law) is investigated.

    The aim of this project was to carry out energetic analysis of typical technical processes in the industrial field, in which low-temperature heat is used. In the frame of these experiments waste heat potentials of the production process were discovered. Furthermore the possibilities of refeeding the waste heat by means of heat transformation plants was investigated. The application of absorption heat transformers or absorption heat pumps is linked to technical marginal conditions, which have to be clarified in the frame of an energetic analysis. The waste heat resulting from processes between 60 and 100 C can be heated to temperatures between 100 and 140 C especially by absorption circuit processes. The incorporation of this enhanced waste heat into the technology was a further aim of the experiments, which is demonstrated by several examples. By means of an absorption heat transformer (performance number {epsilon} = 0,49) a reduction of heating steam of approx. 40% and an amortisation time of five years were achieved. The same result was achieved at the sugar crystallisation in a sugar factory. In the fruit juice industry the exhaust vapours can be used to heat the fruit juice by means of an absorption circuit for heat recovery. Thus it was possible to save energy costs of 360000 DM during one fruit harvest. (orig./GL) [Deutsch] Ein Ziel des bearbeiteten Projektes war es, energetische Analysen typischer technologischer Prozesse in der Industrie durchzufuehren, bei denen Niedertemperaturwaerme eingesetzt wird. Innerhalb dieser Untersuchungen wurden Abwaermepotentiale des Produktionsprozesses aufgedeckt. Im weiteren sollten Moeglichkeiten der Wiedereinkopplung von Abwaerme mit Hilfe von Waermetransformationsanlagen ermittelt werden. Der Einsatz von Absorptionswaermetransformatoren oder Absorptionswaermepumpen ist an technologische Randbedingungen geknuepft, die im Rahmen einer energetischen Analyse geklaert werden muessen. Die anfallende Abwaerme der Prozesse zwischen 60 und 100 C kann speziell mit Sorptionskreisprozessen auf ein Prozesstemperaturniveau von 100 bis 140 C aufgewertet werden. Die Einbindung dieser aufgewerteten Waerme in die Technologie, die an einigen Beispielen demonstriert wird, war ein weiteres Ziel der Untersuchungen. Im konkreten Fall wurde mit Hilfe eines Absorptionswaermetransformators (Leistungsziffer {epsilon} = 0,49) eine Heizdampfeinsparung von ca. 40% und eine Amortisationszeit von 5 Jahren erreicht. Dies gilt ebenso fuer ein Beispiel in einer Zuckerfabrik bei der Zuckerkristallisation. In der Fruchtsaftindustrie laesst sich mit Hilfe eines Sorptionskreislaufes zur Waermerueckgewinnung die Brueckenwaerme zur Fruchtsaftaufwaermung verwenden. Hier war es moeglich, waehrend einer Obstkampagne Energiekosten in Hoehe von 360.000,- DM einzusparen. (orig./GL)

    The project aimed at developing and analysing options for commitments in a future climate regime with focus on land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF). Based on experiences from the past international negotiations and the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), options for core rules were described and analysed according to a catalogue of criteria for environmental and and political success. A literature review, own calculations and a model developed in the frame of the project for calculating forest management effects on carbon stock changes in biomass, soil and wood products were used to quantitatively determine the potential carbon sources and sinks by afforestation, deforestation, forestry and agricultural management in important countries and globally for the next decades, up to one century. The results show that forest management determines the future role of the LULUCF sector in Annex-I countries. The magnitude of future carbon sinks is driven by the age structure of the forests and follows region specific trends. Emissions from deforestation in Non-Annex-I countries exceed by far the potential carbon sinks in managed forests of Annex-I countries. It will be essential for future negotiations to clarify first the accounting rules for carbon sources and sinks in agriculture, forests and other land uses and the relation between the LULUCF sector and other sectors before quantitative emission limitation targets are set. This is even more important in light of a potential integration of emission reductions from deforestation and degradation in a future carbon trading scheme. Experiences with the past national greenhouse gas inventories under the UNFCCC demonstrate that the LULUCF sector could in the future be treated in the same way as the other sectors. National trends in carbon sources and sinks in forests and from deforestation and degradation need to be considered when future emission limitation targets are to be set. (orig.)

    Measurements were made of air concentration and deposition at one coastal station at the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, respectively as well as during four campaigns by ship on the North Sea to find out atmospheric input of organic trace substances into the sea. The measured concentrations of pentachlorobenzene (QCB), hexachlorobenzene (HCB), alpha- and gamma-hexachlorocyclohexene ({alpha}-HCH, {gamma}-HCH) varied by about three orders of magnitude. Based on measured concentrations in the atmosphere and statements of literature about concentrations in seawater, the atmospheric input of these components into the North Sea and the Baltic Sea were estimated. For the components {gamma}-HCH and HCB as a rule was found an atmospheric input into the sea, which, besides the supply by rivers, is another contribution to the load of the sea.

    In the first part of this work different strategies for the design of sulfonated partially fluorinated poly(aryl)s are developed and synthetically realized. The applied concept is that partially fluorinated poly(aryl)s are distinguished from the nonfluorinated ones by an enhanced acidity. Moreover they possess higher bond dissociation energies of both the C-F bonds and any adjacent C-H bonds which should be associated with a gain in radical stability and thus in chemical and thermal stability. In order to investigate the influence of the chemical structure of (partially fluorinated) monomeric building blocks, homo-polymers with different structural units (with aromatic C-F bonds, C(CF3)2-bridged and/or CF3-substituted phenylene rings) are synthesized by polycondensation and structurally characterized (elemental analysis, NMR spectroscopy, gel permeation chromatography). Established organic reactions, such as the Balz-Schiemann reaction, Suzuki reaction and Ullmann's biaryl synthesis, are applied for the synthesis of the specific monomers. After sulfonation of the homo-polymers (ionically crosslinked) membranes are prepared and characterized in terms of suitability as polymer electrolyte membrane in fuel cells (ion-exchange capacity, proton conductivity, thermal and chemical stability, water uptake, dimensional change). Both the chemical nature of the monomers and their constitution in the ionomer are important for the properties of the resulting membranes. Therefore microphase-separated multiblock-co-ionomers based on hydrophilic (sulfonated) and hydrophobic (partially fluorinated) telechelic macromonomers are prepared and characterized. Both the influence of the block length and the chemical nature of the used monomers on the membrane properties are comparatively investigated. On the basis of the findings gained in this part of the work, the advantages and disadvantages of partially fluorinated ionomer membranes are analyzed and discussed. The second part of this work deals with the EPR-spectroscopic investigation of radically induced degradation reactions of model compounds which represent structural units of poly(aryl) ionomers prepared in the first part of this work. These model compounds are exposed to hydroxyl and hydroperoxyl radicals in a flow cell, which are generated directly by photolysis of hydrogen peroxide in the cavity of an ESR spectrometer. By using this experimental setup different parameters (such as concentration of hydroxyl radicals, monomer concentration, flow rate, and pH value) are varied systematically and their influences in terms of the observed product formation of the aromatic model compounds with the hydroxyl radicals are estimated. Conclusions in terms of possible radical reactions of the poly(aryl) ionomer can be drawn from these investigations and information of avoidable structural features (e.g. type of the end groups of the ionomers) and avoidable conditions (e.g. inhomogeneities of pH values in the membrane) are obtained.

Establishment of a semi-biological phantom model for the study of the effect of dose reducing measures on radiation-induced DNA double strand breaks in CT using the example of risk organ based tube current modulation; Etablierung eines semibiologischen Phantommodells zur Untersuchung des Effekts dosisreduzierender Massnahmen auf strahleninduzierte DNA-Doppelstrangbrueche in der CT am Beispiel der risikoorganbasierten Roehrenstrommodulation

    The number of computed tomography (CT) examinations has been rising during the last decades. Therefore techniques for dose reduction receive increasing attention. Risk organ-based tube current modulation (RCM) in CT is a new approach and works by lowering the tube current, while the tube is in front of the patient's body. Therefore it should lead to a dose reduction for radiosensitive organs like the female breast, the eye lenses and the thyroid gland. Biological radiation effects cannot be estimated by physical-based dose measurements. γ-H2AX is a sensitive marker for the determination of x-ray induced DNA double-strand breaks (DSB). Hence the aim of this study was to establish a biological phantom model based on the γ-H2AX immunofluorescence microscopy method and to investigate the effect of RCM on radiation induced DNA damages. The γ-H2AX method is based on the phosphorylation of the histone variant H2AX. The phosphorylated histone γ-H2AX can be visualised using antibodies and is specific for radiation induced DSB. Blood lymphocytes from healthy volunteers, skin fibroblasts (LN) and mammary epithelial cells (HMEpC-p) were placed in different positions of an Alderson-phantom and exposed to x-rays using a 128-slice dual-source CT scanner. Standard head, neck and chest-CT scan protocols either with or without risk-organ based tube current modulation were used. RCM reduces the tube current to 20 percent at an angle of 130 degree anterior to the body, whereas tube current is increased at an angle of 230 degree posterior to the body. Afterwards cells were isolated, fixed on slides und stained with specific primary γ-H2AX antibodies and fluorescent secondary antibodies. Tiny green dots (named foci) can be detected and quantified with a fluorescence microscope and represent distinct DSB. Non-irradiated samples served as controls and CT-induced DSB were calculated by subtraction of pre- from post-exposure values. In this study a semibiological phantom model based on an Alderson-Phantom and the γ-H2AX method was used for the first time. In addition to blood lymphocytes also tissue cells (skin fibroblasts; mammary epithelial cells) were evaluated. Therefore, x-ray induced DSB levels in different organs can be estimated. Using this approach, for all evaluated organ positions risk-organ tube current modulation led to a reduction of radiation induced DSB of about 40 percent in the anterior part of the torso. In head and chest CT scans it is associated with an increase of DSB of about 30 percent in the posterior parts whereas in neck scans a DSB reduction of about 30 percent in the dorsal positions was obtained. The phantom model based on the γ-H2AX immunofluorescence microscopy is well suited for estimation of CT-induced DSB in organs. In addition to blood lymphocytes, also other cells can be tested. Using RCM x-ray induced DNA damages can be reduced in risk organs by approximately 40 percent. However, due to an increase of the tube current while the tube is behind the patient in order to maintain the image quality, there is a clear increase of DSB in posterior positions. Using the phantom model the effect of other dose reducing approaches (e.g. high-pitch spiral data acquisition) on DNA DSB can be tested in the future.

Investigation of the possibilities for continuous condition monitoring of transport containers by acoustic emission testing; Analyse der Schallemissionssignale aus Ermuedungsrisswachstum und Korrosionsprozessen.

    Fatigue crack growth and active corrosion processes are the main causes of structural failures of transport products like road tankers, railway tank cars and ships. To prevent those failures, preventive, time-based maintenance is performed. However, preventive inspections are costly and include the risk of not detecting a defect, which could lead to a failure within the next service period. An alternative is the idea of continuous monitoring of the whole structure by means of acoustic emission testing (AT). With AT, defects within the material shall be detected and repaired directly after their appearance. Acoustic emission testing is an online non-destructive testing method. Acoustic emission (AE) arises from changes within the material and is transported by elastic waves through the material. If the AE event generates enough energy, the elastic wave propagates to the boundaries of the component, produces a displacement in the picometre scale and can be detected by a piezoelectric sensor. The sensor produces an electrical signal. From this AE signal, AE features such as the maximum amplitude or the frequency can be extracted. Methods of signal analysis are used to investigate the time and frequency dependency of signal groups. The purpose of the signal analysis is to connect the AE signal with the originating AE source. If predefined damage mechanisms are identified, referencing the damage condition of the structure is possible. Acoustic emission from events of the actual crack propagation process can for example lead to the crack growth rate or the stress intensity factor, both specific values from fracture mechanics. A new development in the domain of acoustic emission testing is the pattern recognition of AE signals. Specific features are extracted from the AE signals to assign them to their damage mechanisms. In this thesis the AE signals from the damage mechanisms corrosion and fatigue crack growth are compared and analysed. The damage mechanisms were generated application oriented, on plates within the heat affected zone of a weld. Their AE signals were recorded with resonant sensors. On the one hand resonant sensors are very sensitive and able to detect small displacements on huge structures, which makes them applicable for condition monitoring. On the other hand, resonant sensors have a great influence on the AE signals and hinder signal analyses and pattern recognition. Pure fatigue crack growth, fatigue crack growth in a corrosive environment and pure corrosion were applied. Signal groups of the damage mechanisms were compared by their AE features. Differences between signal groups could be made after wave mode analysis, despite the spectral influence of the AE sensors. The damage condition of the test plates is investigated with the combination of AE features of the signal groups and fracture mechanic parameters. Furthermore, two methods of unsupervised pattern recognition of the AE signals are being performed: A commercial classification system, where mainly frequency based features are generated, and an AE feature based method. In the latter, classification takes place after the frequency distributions of the AE features of the signals from the examined damage mechanisms. Both methods result in an accurate classification for the AE signals, especially originating from corrosion damage mechanisms, in the correct damage class. Concluding, the detectability of AE events, the results of pattern recognition of AE signals in metal structures and the prospects and risks of condition monitoring by means of acoustic emission testing are discussed. Therefore, monitoring tests on a tank car and results from cyclic and static loading are consulted. An assessment for the selection of the monitoring method according to the cost effectiveness of dangerous goods transportation is made.

Influence of the surface topography, morphology and structure on magnetic properties of ion beam sputtered iron layers, Fe/Cr/Fe- and Fe/MgO/Fe multilayers; Untersuchung der Morphologie und magnetische Eigenschaften von ionenstrahl-gesputterten Eisen-Einzelschichten, Fe/Cr/Fe- und Fe/MgO/Fe-Schichtsystemen

    In this PhD Thesis, the influence of the surface topography, morphology and structure on magnetic properties of ion beam sputtered iron layers on GaAs is examined. To analyze the structure of the produced iron films, low energy electron diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy is employed. The utilized methods to investigate the magnetic properties are Kerr- and SQUID-magnetometry and ferromagnetic resonance. It is demonstrated that on untreated as well as on presputtered and heated GaAs substrates the sputtered iron films grow epitaxially. The least surface roughness of 1 A exhibit iron films grown on untreated GaAs, while iron films on heated GaAs have the highest roughness of 30 A. The largest crystal anisotropy constant is found for the presputtered GaAs/Fe-System. For this preparation method, two monolayers of iron are determined to be magnetically dead layers. At a film thickness of 100 A, 83% of the value for saturation magnetization of bulk iron are achieved. The small observed FMR-linewidths confirm the good bulk properties of the ion beam sputtered iron. Furthermore, an antiferromagnetic interlayer exchange coupling in sputtered Fe/Cr/Fe-films was achieved. For a thickness of 12 to 17 A of the chrome interlayer, a coupling strength up to 0.2 mJ/m{sup 2} is found. To account for the small coupling strength, a strong intermixing at the interface is assumed. Finally, epitaxial Fe/MgO/Fe/FeMn multilayers are deposited on GaAs. After the structuring, it is possible to detect tunneling processes in the tunneling contacts with current-voltage measurements. The tunnel magneto resistance values of 2% are small, which can be explained by the absence of sharp, well-defined interfaces between the Fe/FeMn and the Fe/MgO interfaces. These results demonstrate, that analog to MBE the ion beam sputtering method realizes good magnetic bulk properties. However, interface sensitive phenomena are weakened because of a strong intermixing at the interfaces. (orig.)

    The the associated kaon-hyperon photoproduction is studied at the particle accelerator ELSA. The data were token with the combined photon spectrometers Crystal Barrel and TAPS and a linearly polarized photon beam with photon energies up to 2.9 GeV. This arrangement covers a spatial angle of about 98% and was therefore well suited to measure neutral decay channels over a large angular range. By this it is possible to determine for the reaction {gamma}p{yields}{sigma}{sup +}K{sub s}{sup 0}{yields}(p{pi}{sup 0})({pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}){yields}p6{gamma} the differential cross section, the recoil polarization P and the photon asymmetry {sigma}. The photon beam must have at last a polarization degree of 15% and its photons an energy of at least 1047 MeV. In order to improve the resolution, a kinematical fit was performed, the confidence level of which must at least amount to 0.1. Then the {sigma}{sup +}- and K{sub s}{sup 0} peaks were identified in the p{pi}{sup 0} respectively {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} mass spectra and the background described by Monte-Carlo simulations. Because nearly the whole angular range could be measured and the acceptance for this reaction is flat over the angular range, the total cross section can be directly extracted from the data. The weak decay of the hyperon leads to a counting-rate asymmetry, from which the recoil polarization of the hyperon can be determined. From the azimutal angular distribution of the {sigma}{sup +} and K{sub s}{sup 0} particles the photon asymmetry can be extracted. [German] Die assoziierte Kaon-Hyperon-Photoproduktion wird am Teilchenbeschleuniger ELSA untersucht. Die Daten wurden mit den kombinierten Photonspektrometern Crystal Barrel und TAPS und einem linear polarisierten Photonenstrahl mit Photonenergien bis zu 2,9 GeV genommen. Dieser Aufbau deckte einen Raumwinkel von etwa 98% ab und war daher sehr gut geeignet, neutrale Zerfallskanaele ueber einen grossen Winkelbereich zu vermessen. Somit ist es moeglich, fuer die Reaktion {gamma}p{yields}{sigma}{sup +}K{sub s}{sup 0}{yields}(p{pi}{sup 0})({pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}){yields}p6{gamma} den differentiellen Wirkungsquerschnitt, die Rueckstosspolarisation P und die Photonasymmetrie {sigma} zu bestimmen. Der Photonenstrahl musste mindestens einen Polarisationsgrad von 15% haben und dessen Photonen eine Energie von mindestens 1047 MeV. Um die Aufloesung zu verbessern, wurde ein kinematischer Fit mit der Hypothese {gamma}p{yields} p3{pi}{sup 0} durchgefuehrt, dessen Konfidenzlevel mindestens 0,1 betragen musste. Dann wurden die {sigma}{sup +}- und K{sub s}{sup 0}-Piks in den p{pi}{sup 0} bzw. {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} invarianten Massenspektren identifiziert und der Untergrund durch Monte Carlo-Simulationen beschrieben. Da fast der gesamte Winkelbereich vermessen werden konnte und die Akzeptanz fuer diese Reaktion flach ueber den Winkelbereich ist, kann der totale Wirkungsquerschnitt direkt aus den Daten extrahiert werden. Der schwache Zerfall des Hyperons fuehrt zu einer Zaehlratenasymmetrie, aus der die Rueckstosspolarisation des Hyperons bestimmt werden kann. Aus der azimutalen Winkelverteilung der {sigma}{sup +}- und K{sub s}{sup 0}-Teilchen kann die Photonasymmetrie extrahiert werden. (orig.)

    In the present project we investigated the molecular mechanism of the decreased antiproliferative effect of the antiestrogenic drug Tamoxifen and the pineal gland hormone Melatonin on breast cancer cells in the presence of low-frequency electromagnetic fields. New unique incubators were developed for the exposure of the cells to controlled, highly homogenous magnetic fields. MCF-7 p40 cells exposed to 1.2 {mu}T expressed 20 genes more than two times stronger than control cells, MCF-7p181 cells 61 genes. 16 genes were expressed weaker in MCF-7p40 cells, 41 genes in MCF-7p181. The increased expression of the particularly interesting coactivators, AIB1 and SRC-1, and of urokinase plasminogen activator and plasminogen-activator inhibitor was confirmed using RT-PCR and Western blot. The corepressors, N-Cor and SMRT, and various metastasis-suppressor genes were expressed lower in the exposed cells. Investigations of signal transduction revealed only MAP-kinase Erk1 being more strongly activated after one hour exposure to the magnetic field, while stress-activated MAP-kinases, junK and p38, were not activated by the magnetic field or even slightly deactivated. Experiments on Melatonin action in the magnetic field showed that expression of the two Melatonin receptors, MT1 and RZR{alpha}, was only marginally altered at 1,2 {mu}T. Of the target genes of Melatonin expression of tumorsuppressors p53 and p21waf was decreased in the magnetic field whereas the decrease in expression of BRCA1 and c-myc by Melatonin was less strong in the magnetic field.

    In this joint research project DMT investigated the release (and incorporation) of alkalis of the coal mineral matter to clear up the affecting mechanisms during combustion at elevated pressure. In the experiments parameter like the ambient gas and the ash composition, pressure and heating rate were varied. The experiments were conducted in DMT's high-temperature and high-pressure Thermogravimetric-Analyser (TGA) and the DMT Pressurised Fluidised Bed Combustor (PFBC). TGA-Experiments: A model compounds for the alkali sodium chloride and for the mineral matter metakaoline were used. The chemical properties (basicity) of metakaoline was modified by adding CaO. The commonly accepted physical volatilization process of the alkali from the ash was not confirmed by TGA experiments. The alkali release must be regarded as a desorption mechanism of the sodium chloride from the metakaoline surface. The desorption of the alkali is not affected by chemical composition of the mineral matter but is strongly influenced by gas phase oxygen species and pressure. PFBC-Experiments: The rig was operated with a fluidised bed temperature of 920 C and a pressure of 7 bar. The online/in-situ alkali detection was based on the excimer laser induced fragmentation fluorescence ELIF. The alkali content of the coal was varied by addition of sodium acetate and sodium chloride. Kaoline was used as gettermaterial for mitigation of alkali emissions. Furthermore, the influence of limestone on the alkali release was investigated. Among other results, the experiments showed that the alkali emissions of the lignite are 50-100 times higher than those of the bituminous coal and if limestone for capturing SO{sub 2} is added to the combustor the alkali chloride emissions increase rapidly. (orig.) [German] Im Rahmen des o.g. Gemeinschaftsprojekts untersuchte die DMT die Freisetzung (und Einbindung) der Alkalien aus der Mineralsubstanz von Kohlen zur Aufklaerung der beeinflussenden Mechanismen bei der Verbrennung unter Druck. Variiert wurden hierzu die Einflussparameter umgebende Gasatmosphaere und Aschezusammensetzung sowie Druck und Aufheizrate. Die Versuche wurden in der DMT Hochdruck-Hochtemperatur-Thermowaage (TGA) und der DMT Druckwirbelschichtfeuerung (DWSF) durchgefuehrt. TGA-Versuche: Als Modelsubstanz fuer Alkalien wurde Natriumchlorid und fuer die Mineralsubstanz der Kohle Metakaolin eingesetzt. Die chemische Eigenschaft (Basizitaet) von Metakaolin wurde durch Zugabe von CaO veraendert. Die allgemein akzeptierte Annahme eines physikalischen Verdampfungsprozesses der Alkalien aus den Kohleaschen konnte in den TGA-Versuchen nicht bestaetigt werden. Vielmehr muss von einer Desorptionsreaktion des Natriumchlorids von der Metakaolin-Oberflaeche ausgegangen werden. Die Desorption von Alkalien wird nicht durch die chemische Zusammensetzung der Mineralsubstanz beeinflusst, dagegen besitzen die Sauerstoffverbindungen in der Gasphase und der Druck einen starken Einfluss. DWSF-Versuche: Die Versuchsanlage wurde betrieben bei einer Wirbelschichttemperatur von 920 C und einem Druck von 7 bar. Die online/in-situ Alkali-Messung beruht auf der Excimer Laser Induced Fragmentation Fluorescence ELIF. Die Alkali-Konzentration wurde variiert durch die Zugabe von Natriumacetat und Natriumchlorid. Als Adsorber von Alkaliemissionen wurde Kaolin eingesetzt. Darueber hinaus wurde der Einfluss der Kalksteinzugabe auf die Alkali-Emissionen untersucht. Die Versuche zeigten u.a., dass die Alkali-Emissionen von Braunkohlen um einen Faktor 50-100 ueber den Alkali-Emissionen von Steinkohlen liegen, und dass die Zugabe von Kalkstein (der zur SO{sub 2}-Minderung eingesetzt wird) zu stark ansteigenden Alkalichlorid-Emissionen fuehrt.

    The question of the supply assurance develops from continuously increasing energy prices as well as struggles of distribution on the international market of raw material. Under this aspect as well as due to the obligation to paragraph 51 power industry acts, a monitoring of the supply assurance is to be accomplished. The contribution under consideration serves as a fundament for the report about the supply assurance in the supply of natural gas. In the first part of this contribution, the world-wide developments and basic conditions are analyzed. The second contribution examines and evaluates the natural gas market in Europe. The third part of this contribution analyzes and evaluates the supply assurance in the supply of natural gas in the Federal Republic of Germany. It results a systematic overview for the situation of the natural gas supply under the aspects of quantity protection and transportation infrastructure at global, European and national level.

    The reaction {gamma}p{yields}K{sup +}{sigma}{sup -}{pi}{sup +} was measured in the photon energy range from threshold up to 2.65 GeV. The cross section is dominated by the production of the resonances {sigma}(1385), {lambda}(1405) and {lambda}(1520) which decay into {sigma}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}. Cross sections were obtained as a function of the photon energy and the K{sup +} production angle for the reaction and the resonance production. The cross section for {lambda}(1520) rises up to (0.230{+-}0.029) {mu}b in the photon energy range 1.80

    In this Thesis the interfaces between covalently bonded crystalline and amorphous materials were studied with regard to the induced ordering in the amorphous material in the interfacial region by means of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HREM). The interface between amorphous germanium and crystalline silicon and the interface between amorphous and crystalline silicon served as material system. In order to quantify the influence of the crystalline order on the amorphous material, the HREM images were periodically averaged along the interface. The intensity components, which are correlated with the period of the lattice image, could thus be separated from the statistical intensity fluctuations, which are characteristic for images of amorphous materials. Since amorphous materials can only be described meaningful by statistical distribution functions, for the induced order a three-dimensional distribution function {rho}{sub 3D}(r) was taken as a basis, which describes the probability to find an atom in the amorphous material, if r=0 is the position of an atom in the crystal. Its two-dimensional projection, {rho}, can be determined using iterative image matching techniques on averaged experimental and simulated interface images. For the analyzed material systems {rho} exhibits lateral ordering as well as a pronounced layering in the vicinity of the interface. In the case of the a-Si/c-Si sample the mean orientation of bonds was 70.5 , as is in the case of the undistorted diamond lattice, while for the a-Ge/c-Si sample 65 resulted. The standard deviation for the distribution of the deviations from the mean bond angle yields for the a-Ge/c-Si sample in the first atomic layer a value of 11.3 and for the a-Si/c-Si sample 1.9 . These results suggest the conclusion, that the differences in these values are to be interpreted as the reaction of the amorphous material to the volume misfit. Although for both material systems 1.4 nm was calculated for the width of the transition region, it could be shown, that there is a qualitative difference in the localization of the atom distribution in the first three atomic layers. In addition, the lateral structural differences along the interface were analyzed for the a-Ge/c-Si sample and a method presented, which makes it possible to mark differences between two distribution functions as significant. On the basis of the achieved results it could be shown, that significant structural variations along the interface do not appear up to the second atomic layer. The atom distribution of the first layer remained constant within the errors, which indicates homogenous properties for this layer on the scale of the image region ({approx}23 nm). (orig.)

    This paper is related to 16Mo3, a low-alloy steel typical in the manufacture of large welded steel casings of heavy-duty gas turbine engines. The usual practice in manufacturing is to stress relieve these housings after fabrication welding. If, however, weld imperfections are detected by non-destructive testing, weld repairs are performed, followed by additional stress-relief heat treatments. The methods applied were used to detect possible embrittlement by secondary carbide precipitation and to finally draw conclusions on material changes. The critical area of a weld is the heat affected zone. In this area a worsening of the stress condition in connection with a change in carbide precipitation and thus a decrease in creep rupture strength occurs. A concrete alloy composition and heat treatment adapted to the precipitation behavior are important, because they determine the type, amount and distribution of the resulting carbides. (orig.)

    In the present work, the martensitic transition and the magnetic properties of Manganese rich Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 50-x}Sn{sub x} and Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 50-y}In{sub y} alloys with 5 at%{<=}x(y){<=}25 at% were investigated. Calorimetry, X-ray and neutron diffraction, magnetization, and strain measurements were performed on polycrystalline samples. It was shown that alloys close to the stoichiometric composition Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 25}Sn{sub 25} and Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 25}Sn{sub 25} do not exhibit a structural transition on lowering of the temperature, whereas alloys with x{<=}15 at% Tin and y{<=}16 at% Indium transform martensitically. The structural transition temperatures increase linearly with decreasing Tin or Indium content. The crystal structures of the low temperature martensite are modulated as well as unmodulated. Alloys with compositions close to stoichiometry are dominated by ferromagnetic interactions, whereas those close to the binary composition Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 50} order antiferromagnetically. Ferromagnetic order and structural instability coexist in a narrow composition range between 13 at%{<=}x{<=}15 at% and 15 at%{<=}x{<=}16 at% for Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 50-x}Sn{sub x} and Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 50-y}In{sub y} respectively. As a consequence, interesting magnetoelastic effects are observed. The Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 34}In{sub 16} alloy shows a magnetic field-induced structural transition, whereby application of an external magnetic field in the martensitic state stabilizes the high temperature L2{sub 1} structure. Evidence for this was given by neutron diffraction experiments in external magnetic fields. Moreover, the structural transition temperatures of this alloy show large magnetic field dependencies. By use of calorimetry, M(T), and strain measurements, changes in M{sub s} up to -11 K/Tesla are observed. Such large values have, until now, not been observed in Heusler alloys. Since during transformation the volume changes reversibly, magnetic field-induced strains of about 0.12 % appear. Additionally, the alloys Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 35}Sn{sub 15}, Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 37}Sn{sub 13}, Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 34}In{sub 16}, Ni{sub 51.5}Mn{sub 33}In{sub 15.5}, and Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 35}In{sub 15} show remarkable magnetocaloric properties. The entropy change {delta}S, which is determined by the sign of {theta}M(T)/{theta}T, is positive in all cases. The absolute values of {delta}S reach up to +23 JK{sup -1}kg{sup -1} (Ni{sub 50}Mn{sub 35}In{sub 15}) at room temperature, which are, up to now, the largest values ever obtained in Heusler type alloys. This means that these alloys exhibit an inverse magnetocaloric effect, whereby the samples cool by adiabatic application of an external magnetic field. (orig.)

    The project aimed at developing and analysing options for commitments in a future climate regime with focus on land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF). Based on experiences from the past international negotiations and the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), options for core rules were described and analysed according to a catalogue of criteria for environmental and and political success. A literature review, own calculations and a model developed in the frame of the project for calculating forest management effects on carbon stock changes in biomass, soil and wood products were used to quantitatively determine the potential carbon sources and sinks by afforestation, deforestation, forestry and agricultural management in important countries and globally for the next decades, up to one century. The results show that forest management determines the future role of the LULUCF sector in Annex-I countries. The magnitude of future carbon sinks is driven by the age structure of the forests and follows region specific trends. Emissions from deforestation in Non-Annex-I countries exceed by far the potential carbon sinks in managed forests of Annex-I countries. It will be essential for future negotiations to clarify first the accounting rules for carbon sources and sinks in agriculture, forests and other land uses and the relation between the LULUCF sector and other sectors before quantitative emission limitation targets are set. This is even more important in light of a potential integration of emission reductions from deforestation and degradation in a future carbon trading scheme. Experiences with the past national greenhouse gas inventories under the UNFCCC demonstrate that the LULUCF sector could in the future be treated in the same way as the other sectors. National trends in carbon sources and sinks in forests and from deforestation and degradation need to be considered when future emission limitation targets are to be set. (orig.)

    The author of the book under consideration tries to figure out how taxi drivers in the Berlin area assess the introduction of natural gas driven vehicles as a whole and assess how they probably will behave in the future. Hence, the potential of the alternative fuel technology to natural gas driven vehicles are gathered. The results of quantitative studies are discussed in five chapters. The result-related topics are reflected as significant in comparison with subjective assessments and objective scientific research. Supporters regard natural gas driven vehicles in operation as more environmental friendly as opponents. The relevant research results supply a mixed picture on this statement, depending on the number, composition, survey and weighting of individual environmental factors. This does not result in a meaningful overall picture of the arguments that could explain the relevant issues comprehensively.

    With the background of the threatening global warming that requires a reduction of greenhouse gas emission by 20 % until 2010 und by 80% until 2050 in Germany, t is reasonable to consider local or municipal climate protection activities. A climate protection politics ''from the bottom'' is not only contributing to a real greenhouse gas reduction, but also triggering the stagnant international climate politics and enhances the sustainable development on a local level. Due to this fact amongst others the Enquete commission of the German Bundestag ''sustainable energy supply under the conditions of globalization and liberalization'' identifies the municipal climate protection activities as important part within the mix of measures that will allow the initiation of an alteration of the actual energy system toward a sustainable energy supply in the long-run. The consequences of globalization and liberalization on the municipal level have not yet been discussed or considered by the Enquete commission. This thesis analyses the conditions induced by the globalization and liberalization on the municipal climate protection activities as constituent of a sustainable energy supply. The project is focusing on the municipal actors and the public utility companies as central point of the considerations. [German] Vor dem Hintergrund einer drohenden globalen Erwaermung, die eine Reduktion der klimawirksamen Treibhausgase bundesweit um 20 % bis 2010 und um 80 % bis 2050 noetig macht, sind Klimaschutzaktivitaeten auf einer lokalen oder kommunalen Ebene in mehreren Dimensionen sinnvoll. Den tatsaechlichen, bezifferbaren Reduktionen von CO2, die hier geleistet werden, gesellt sich ein ''vorbildhafter'' Druck auf eine stockende internationale Klimapolitik hinzu, ebenso leistet die ''Klimaschutzpolitik von unten'' einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung der lokalen Ebene durch Lerneffekte Vorschub. Unter anderem aus diesen Gruenden sieht die Enquete-Kommission des Deutschen Bundestages ''Nachhaltige Energieversorgung unter den Bedingungen von Globalisierung und Liberalisierung'' in kommunalen Klimaschutzaktivitaeten als einen Bestandteil eines Instrumenten-Mixes, der einen langfristigen Umbau des derzeitigen Energiesystems in Richtung nachhaltige Energieversorgung initiieren soll. Problematischerweise werden die Auswirkungen der Globalisierung und Liberalisierung auf die kommunale Ebene von der Enquete-Kommission allerdings weder aufgegriffen noch reflektiert. Das Promotionsvorhaben fragt nach den Auswirkungen auf die Akteure des kommunalen Klimaschutzes und nach den Bedingungen, die die Globalisierung und Liberalisierung an einen kommunalen Klimaschutz als einen Bestandteil einer nachhaltigen Energieversorgung stellt. Das Projekt rueckt hierbei insbesondere die Akteure Kommune und Stadtwerke in den Mittelpunkt der Betrachtung und kommt zu teilweise sehr ueberraschenden Ergebnissen. (orig.)

    With increasing misorientation angle grain boundaries strongly reduce the critical current density of high temperature superconductors. For this reason costly techniques are used in production of modern Coated Conductors to induce sharp textures in the polycrystalline superconductor layers. In this dissertation measurements of the critical current density of different grain boundary types are presented showing that out-of-plane grain boundaries exhibit, also in applied magnetic fields, much higher critical current densities than expected. In further analysis of the grain boundaries indications for a microstructural reason of the high critical current densities were found. The high critical current densities of the out-of-plane grain boundaries should in fabrication of Coated Conductors allow for a relaxation of the out-of-plane grain alignment requirements and a concomitant cost reduction. In this work also results of a industrial cooperation with Nexans are presented demonstrating that the critical current density of metal-organic deposited grain boundaries and Coated Conductor layers can be increased by selective Calcium-doping. In the experiments selective Calcium-doping most effectively increased the critical current density of weak spots. (orig.)

    This thesis investigated the effect of hydrogen-peroxide-containing fog on spruces (Picea abies Karst.) in a field experiment. Under the influence of hydrogen-peroxide-containing fog, primary needles show an increase in wax contents. This entails reduced water loss through cuticular transpiration and premature aging of needles. The pigment contents of the spruce needles reveal an increase in the contents of xanthophylls and chlorophyll B. Especially the increase in oxygenated carotinoids must be interpreted as an indication of advanced senescence. Regarding phenols, too, changes in the composition of individual classes of substances were established. These point to a shift in biosynthesis in favour of higher phenols. (orig./MG)

    Energy sources such as coal, natural gas, petroleum, and nuclear fission have long been established on the marketplace and considered competitive. However, a comprehensive restructuring of energy generation is necessary, as conventional energy generation pollutes the environment. Therefore environmentally friendly energy sources, such as solar, wind or water power need to be promoted. However, regenerative energy sources are still not capable of competing with conventional energy. Marketability of renewable energy sources can only be achieved through government-sponsored promotion and regulation. Such measures include fixed price and fixed quantity models with green certificates. The support schemes for renewable energy sources are characterized by their wide-ranging adaptability. The various elements of a scheme must be adapted to a given country's set goals and specific circumstances. There is no universally applicable model. Based on given goals and opportunities, every domestic legislator faces the challenge of choosing the best scheme or developing a mixed model that combines various elements. The aim of this study is to provide a legal analysis of regulations concerning the support schemes for renewable energy sources within the framework of EU and international law. Furthermore, the study aimed at comparing support schemes implemented in Poland and Germany. In the EU, the electricity directive from 1996 and 2003, the directive on the promotion of electricity from renewable energy sources from 2003 and 2008, non-binding documents, such as the ''green and white book'', as well as the ''ALTENER'' program, successfully contributed to establishing the topic of renewable energies. Regarding international law, it is primarily the Kyoto protocol that has to be mentioned as a basis for the promotion of renewable energy sources. Poland introduced a fixed quantity model with green certificates. Separated reimbursements for certificates and for physical energy provide power generating companies with a sufficient basis for making investments. If a set quote cannot be met by purchasing certificates because no more certificates are available in a given fiscal period, companies can meet the quantity by paying a compensation. Germany introduced a fixed price model. The fixed reimbursements envisaged in the German model enable investors to build new facilities that use renewable energy sources and contribute effectively to the development of these sources. The legislative support schemes for renewable energies are intended to offer financial incentives to investors committing themselves to the construction of new facilities that provide renewable energy. The aim of the promotion - the establishment of currently non-competitive renewable energy facilities on the market - has been achieved as well by the Polish as the German measures. Ideally, the promotion should contribute to the future marketability of renewable energies. It would therefore be desirable to use dynamic mechanisms for designing incentives in such a way that support can be reduced over time. The Polish model does not intend this, unlike the German model under which reimbursements are degressive. (orig.)

    Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) has become the treatment of choice for urinary calculi. 117 patients were studied prospectively with [sup 99m]Tc Mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) before and after ESWL. 79 (66%) of the 119 kidneys treated had abnormal findings. Of these 63/119 (53%) had abnormal scans. 41 (65%) had focal lesions with a delayed intrarenal transport. The remaining 22 had a diffuse delay of intrarenal transport. A loss of relative renal function of 3% and more compared to the pretreatment values was observed in 50/119 (42%) patients. [sup 99m]Tc MAG3 should be done routinely together with radiologic tests (CT or MRI) before and after ESWL to select the patients at risk for post ESWL hypertension. (orig.).

    In 1979 the first heavy-fermion superconductor CeCu{sub 2}Si{sub 2} was discovered by Steglich et al. The system is near a quantum critical point (QCP), where the magnetic order is just suppressed. The distance to the QCP can be varied with hydrostatic pressure as well as by germanium substitution on the silicon site. Next to the superconductivity in CeCu{sub 2}Si{sub 2} one finds distinct magnetic phases while increasing the germanium content. CeCu{sub 2}Si{sub 2} shows a magnetic order of a spin-density-type below T{sub N}-0.8 K, whereas the heavy fermion system CeCu{sub 2}Ge{sub 2} orders below T{sub N}=4.1 K as an antiferromagnet. The focus of this thesis is on neutron-diffraction in the system CeCu{sub 2}(Si{sub 1-x}Ge{sub x}){sub 2}. Starting with a sample with a high germanium content of x=0.45, the magnetic structures are investigated in detail. Following a step-by-step approach, samples with reduced x are investigated subsequently to figure out the properties of pure CeCu{sub 2}Si{sub 2}, which were not accessible before. Furthermore, the complex interaction between magnetism and superconductivity is investigated in detail. Using a specially designed setup, the ac-susceptibility could be recorded simultaneously during the neutron diffraction experiments. Due to the direct correlation between antiferromagnetic signals and diamagnetic features, the microscopic coexistence of superconductivity and magnetic order can be ruled out. Instead, a phase separation on the microscopic scale is found. (orig.)

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) discusses combined energy and cost simulations used to analyse the effects of decisions made by building owners on the implementation of such building standards as far as costs are concerned. Using data of 38 actually realised buildings that were built according to the MuKEn, Minergie and Minergie-P standards, the influence of these standards on project costs was investigated. Comparisons of the costs for building to meet a particular standard are made with those in the case when the buildings would have been built to the other standards. The classes of buildings Investigated were single family home, apartments and office buildings. In order to do this, a combined simulation tool for energy and cost simulation was developed. The simulations were run in parallel with wood pellet heating and natural gas heating with 70% coverage of solar water heating. The results of the analysis of the use of the various standards are presented and discussed. The importance of optimising building orientation, providing a compact building envelope and the avoidance of thermal bridges is stressed. The quantification of additional costs for reaching the standards are discussed.

    In this study an analysis method is presented which allows numerical simulation of in situ air sparging coupled with soil vapor extraction. The improved FE-program takes the following phenomena into account: - Two-phase flow of compressible air and incompressible water - convective-dispersive contamination migration with air and water - transfer of volatile components from liquid phase to gas and water phase - sorption of contaminants onto soil - transfer of contaminants between air and water phase - biological processes. By means of back calculations of the results of laboratory experiments made by Eisele (1989) it was shown that with the developed program GWLCOND some of the necessary parameters for the numerical simulation of remedial systems can be determined. (orig./SR) [Deutsch] In dieser Arbeit wird ein Verfahren vorgestellt, mit dem eine numerische Simulation der Drucklufteinblasung und Bodenluftabsaugung durchgefuehrt werden kann. Das weiterentwickelte FE-Programmsystem beinhaltet folgende Ablaeufe: - Zweiphasenstroemung der kompressiblen Luft- und der inkompressiblen Wasserphase - Konvektiv-dispersiver Schadstofftransport mit der Gas- und der Wasserphase - Uebergang fluessiger Schadstoffe in die Gas- und in die Wasserphase - Sorption der Schadstoffe an der Feststoffphase - Uebergang der Schadstoffe zwischen der Gas- und der Wasserphase - Biologischer Abbau. Anhand der Nachrechnung eines Laborversuches von Eisele (1989) wird gezeigt, wie mit dem entwickelten Transportprogramm GWLCOND ein Teil der fuer die numerische Simulation des Sanierungsverfahrens benoetigten Kennwerte ermittelt werden kann.

    The criteria for acceptance testing of ventilation systems with integrated heat recovery were specified by the Deutsches Institut fuer Bautechnik (DIBt), Berlin, for systems for heat supply to the fresh air stream (air-to-air systems). This includes requirements on the test facilities of the technical inspection services, e.g. test stand layout and measuring systems to ensure a standard accuracy. The contribution describes these requirements for the example of the test facility of the Institute of Applied Thermodynamics and Air Conditioning Engineering at Essen University. (orig.)

    Since spring 2004 the Crystal Ball Detector has been used for coincidence experiments probing the structure of the nucleons with real photons at the Mainzer Microtron. A major part of the commissioning, which was the first goal of this work, was the development and implementation of a new system for the Crystal Ball electronics. Components were designed or tested and, if necessary, modified to fit the experimental needs. After the commissioning, the set-up was then used successfully in several pion and eta production experiments for more than 2500 hours of beamtime. The second focus of this dissertation is the first measurement of the beam helicity asymmetry I{sup s}un in photoproduction of two neutral pions. The understanding of the excitation spectra of the nucleon requires experiments using polarised photons and/or polarised targets. Models based on different assumptions do reproduce the quantities measured without polarisation equally well but differ in the prediction of polarisation observables. The determination of more sensitive quantities is therefore mandatory. In contrast to single meson production, an observable appears in double pion production when using circularly polarized photons incident on an unpolarized target. This observable was determined as a function of energy and angle in the reactions {gamma} p {yields} p {pi}{sup 0} {pi}{sup 0} and in {gamma} p {yields} p {pi}{sup +} {pi}{sup -}. The results differ significantly from the model predictions. (orig.)

    Repositories in geological formations are planned for the final disposal of radioactive wastes produced by nuclear power. Generally, water entry leading to leaching of the waste matrix is considered as the critical process which can result in release of radionuclides from a waste repository. In risk analyses for waste repositories the migration of radionuclides through the geosphere is usually described mathematically by a one-dimensional transport model. On the other hand the hydrological calculational models used for determining the critical migration paths are invariably two- or three-dimensional. A one-dimensional transport calculation always gives conservative results for a specific migration path because the influence of the transverse dispersion/diffusion effect is neglected. This effect results in an additional decrease of the nuclide concentration along the migration path. On the other hand radionuclides can spread to adjacent geological formations which are not taken into account in a one-dimensional model. If the water velocities in these formations are higher than along the original (one-dimensional) migration path or if the distance to the biosphere (e.g. lake, river or well) is shorter, then the process of the transverse diffusion/dispersion can represent an additional risk. The present work deals with the influence of the transverse diffusion/dispersion effect on the migration of radionuclides through the geosphere. We restrict ourselves to migration in porous media which is the standard approach of most existing transport models. For modelling the transport of radionuclides in fissured systems there exist only a few preliminary calculational approaches to date. We are mainly interested in analytically soluble problems which take into account the transverse diffusion/dispersion effect. This procedure permits investigation of the most important effects in a simple and direct manner. 17 refs., 36 figs., 2 tabs.

    In line with this work the structural and magnetic properties of the exchange coupled layered systems Fe/FeSn{sub 2} and Fe/FeSi/Si and of the Fe ion implanted diluted magnetic semiconductor (DMS) SiC(Fe) were investigated. The main measuring method was the isotope selective {sup 57}Fe conversion electron Moessbauer spectroscopy (CEMS), mostly in connection with the {sup 57}Fe tracer layer technique, in a temperature range from 4.2 K to 340 K. Further measurement techniques were X-ray diffraction (XRD), electron diffraction (LEED, RHEED), SQUID magnetometry and FMR (Ferromagnetic Resonance). In the first part of this work the properties of thin AF FeSn{sub 2}(001) films and of the exchange-bias system Fe/FeSn{sub 2}(001) on InSb(001) were investigated. With the application of {sup 57}Fe-tracer layers and CEMS both the Fe-spin structure and the temperature dependence of the magnetic hyperfine field (B{sub hf}) of FeSn{sub 2} could be examined. The evaporation of Fe films on the FeSn{sub 2} films produced in the latter ones a high perpendicular spin component at the Fe/FeSn{sub 2} interface. In some distance from the interface the Fe spins rotate back into the sample plane. Furthermore {sup 57}Fe-CEMS provided a correlation between the absolute value of the exchange field vertical stroke He vertical stroke and the amount of magnetic defects within the FeSn{sub 2}. Temperature dependent CEMS-measurements yielded informations about the spin dynamics within the AF. The transition temperatures T{sub B}{sup *}, which were interpreted as superparamagnetic blocking temperatures, obtain higher values compared to the temperatures T{sub B} of the exchange-bias effect, obtained with magnetometry measurements. The second part of this work deals with the indirect exchange coupling within Fe/FeSi/Si/FeSi/Fe multilayers and FeSi diffusion barriers. The goal was to achieve Fe free Si interlayers. The CEMS results show that starting from a thickness of t{sub FeSi}=10-12 A of the ''lower'' FeSi layers the interdiffusion of Fe is inhibited. For thicker FeSi layers (t{sub FeSi} {approx} 20 A) the formation of the metastable defective c-FeSi phase was detected. For the first time an oscillating antiferromagnetic exchange coupling between the Fe layers with a period of {approx} 6 Aas a function of the FeSi thickness. In the third part of this work we attempted to produce a diluted magnetic semiconductor by ion implantation of {sup 57}Fe into SiC(0001) wafer. For doses {>=} 2 x 10{sup 16} ions cm{sup -2} and after thermal annealing superparamagnetic Fe{sub 3}Si nanoclusters were found with CEMS, XRD and TEM (Transmission Electron Microscopy), which were epitaxially embedded in the SiC matrix. Besides Fe{sub 3}Si no other phases were observed. For the lowest doses of 1 x 10{sup 16} ions cm{sup -2} the CEM spectra at 4.2 K gave evidence of ferromagnetism and the absence of nanoparticles. The upper limit under which there are no segregations of secondary phases was therefore limited to 1-3 at.% Fe. (orig.)

    The intention of this work is to shed light on two much discussed topics in the study of rare earth oxides (REO) by hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES): (i) Due to the complex spectral shape of the Ce3d region, there have been many discussions on proper approaches to determine the concentration of Ce{sup 3+} and Ce{sup 4+} species in CeO{sub x} over the last decades. (ii) Recently, the true electron structure of rare earth oxides gained new attention, since ab initio calculations showed the necessity of considering additional inter atomic charge transfer to Ce5d levels. Using HAXPES and resonant HAXPES, the question of the true electronic structure of rare earth oxides is approached from the experimental side. As a third topic, the obtained results for cerium oxide and praseodymium oxide are applied in order to investigate the plasma oxidized mixed oxide Ce{sub x}Pr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2-{delta}} grown on Si(111) during thermal reduction.

    The range of the free movement of goods and labour and its limitation by means of the environmental protection as the treaty objective of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (AEUV) are the objective of this study. The investigation is performed in light of the German energy promoting laws EEG (Renewable Energy Law) and KWKModG (Act for the Retention, Modernisation and Expansion of Combined Heat and Power) whose incentive effect is combined with a discriminating interference of the free merchandise traffic. Based on the PreussenElektra legislation of the European Court of Justice (Luxembourg, Luxembourg) and the succession jurisdiction, the author of the contribution under consideration reports on whether the European Court of Justice has opened the Cassis formula as a basis for justification for discriminations. This can be negotiated. After all, the analysis of the Supreme Court decision comes to the result that the European Court of Justice has applied the known method of practical concordance in the PreussenElektra decision. In case of a collision of treaty objectives of equal rank - merchandise traffic and environmental traffic - one only has to perform an appreciation of values which may involve a justification of discriminating impacts in the free movement of goods and labour. The fundamentals of the minimis notice from the European Competition Act can be decisive for the justification and for the conformity of the domestic market of a discriminating national law if an intervention is connected with a partial market fore closure. These fundamentals have some influence on the consideration as part of the testing of concordance.

    The present thesis consists of two parts. In the first part a novel experimental method for the measurement of the proton root-mean-square radius at the S-DALINAC is presented. A setup based on semiconductor detectors is realized. In contrast to previous experiments it allows a simultaneous measurement of the momentum transfer dependence of the elastic electron scattering cross section. A possible suppression of the significant electron and bremsstrahlung background observed in a test experiment was investigated with the help of different methods, such as {delta}E-E telescopes, the time of flight method with a pulsed beam and pulse shape discrimination. The combination of these methods allows a reduction of the background at all scattering angles, which should allow a successful measurement. The response of the detector system was studied with the help of Monte-Carlo simulations with an emphasis on the dependence of the expected accuracy of different parameters. The second part of this work describes an investigation of the fine structure of giant resonances in {sup 28}Si, {sup 48}Ca and {sup 166}Er with the help of a wavelet analysis. The discrete wavelet transform was used for a background determination in spectra of the iso vector E1 and the M2 giant resonances in {sup 48}Ca. This allows the extraction of 1{sup -} und 2{sup -} level densities in the excitation energy region of the respective resonances with the help of a fluctuation analysis. A fluctuation analysis of the fine structure of the isoscalar E2 resonance in {sup 166}Er allows the extraction of the coherent widths of the 2{sup +} states. In the excitation energy region E{sub x}=10-16 MeV widths between 30 and 80 eV are found. The fine structure of the giant resonances is furthermore specified by characteristic scales. In this thesis scales in {sup 28}Si and {sup 48}Ca are extracted with the help of the above mentioned wavelet transform. In {sup 28}Si the isovector E1 and isoscalar E2 resonances were analyzed. Four scales at 110 keV, 410 keV, 640 keV and 2.2 MeV were found. The smallest one shows a systematic dependence on the excitation energy and rises from 110 keV at 16 MeV to 220 keV at 23 MeV. For the isoscalar E2 resonance in {sup 28}Si six scales were found at 100 keV, 180 keV, 330 keV, 470 keV, 750 keV and 2.5 MeV. In {sup 48}Ca the isovector E1 and the M2 resonances were investigated. The extracted scales for the isovector E1 resonance are at 190 keV, 290 keV, 650 keV and 3.3 MeV. (orig.)

    Study into the influence of the Chernobyl reactor accident in April 1986 on infant mortility in lightly and heavily contaminated areas of the Federal Republic of Germany. In connection with this scientific study, official quarterly reports on population developments released by the Wiesbaden-based Federal Office of Statistics were subjected to a time-dependent analysis. On the basis of generally applicable stastical laws infant mortality curves plotted after 1958 were examined for changes after Chernobyl. In view of regional differences in the effects from radioactive precipitations due to the Chernobyl ractor accident, the examinations were performed in subgroups that were largely derived from the results of a study covering all of the Federal territory. The analysis revealed the following links: The curve of the infant mortality rates for the first 7 days after delivery (7-day mortalities) pointed to a linear-exponential relationship between the point of time investigated and number of infants dying. In heavily contaminated areas the 7-day mortality rates determined after 1986 show statistically significant deviations from developments as expected from normal rates. (orig./MG).

    The energy shift is researched in this study as a broad societal process from a sociological perspective. As cutting edge developments are found in geographical and social niches, seven advanced and ambitious ''energy-regions'' were selected in rural areas as case studies. The paradigm of energy-autonomy (or autarky) or the 100% self sustaining region was researched as a yet young developmental path by using qualitative methods. Energy autarky or autonomy is understood as the goal to supply a region completely with heat and electricity from renewable sources. This has rather seldom been completely realised due to its high requirements. This study describes the hindrances, stages of development and typical problems as well as factors which allow to resolve them. A comparision of the case studies results in a theoretical model, to explain the success of single initiatives and partially allow for predictions. The thesis is deduced that the technical and economical infra-structures of renewable energy-regions adapt on the long term to the given social structure. Furthermore the diffusion of the ''energy-region'' is caused by the level of social capital. Due to the interdependency of social and technical complexity, the energy shift means for the countryside most of all a social and organisational challenge. This study describes the different strategies of involved actors and their constellations to one another. (orig.)

    The aim of the analyses on natural hazards described in this report was to evaluate the advantages of innovative hazard assessment methods available today over the hazard assessment methods commonly applied for German nuclear power plant sites in the past. For each hazard under consideration (earthquake, flooding, and wind loads) it has been assessed whether the new methods provide additional insights that could call for their mandatory application in future site specific hazard assessments. If no additional insights are gained, the hitherto applied methods can be considered adequate according to today's standards. In the context of this work, no areas could be identified where the hazard assessment methods stipulated in German (nuclear) regulations are generally inadequate. These methods that are commonly applied in practice do not seem to be prone to significantly underestimate the site specific hazard. Nevertheless, some newer methods allow for more precise (reduction of uncertainties) and more comprehensive (consideration of additional hazard characteristics) hazard assessments. Therefore, depending on the hazard under consideration, it could be advisable to supplement future site specific hazard assessments by some additional analyses. As the methods for some of these additional analyses are not yet fully developed, further research will be necessary to enable these amendments.

    In 105 patients CT studies were done prospectively after renal ESWL with a second generation lithotripter. 33 (31%) of the patients had renal oedema (n=8), renal (n=20) or extrarenal (n=31) bleeding. Three of the 23 patients who had a three year follow-up had chronic renal changes, 10 had renal stones. As blunt renal trauma can be the cause of renal hypertension a longterm follow-up is necessary in ESWL patients, particularly if there was renal bleeding after treatment. Further studies are needed to determine the exact risk of renal hypertension after ESWL. (orig.)

    Radiological evaluation of esophageal motility and the lower esophageal sphincter has gained increased attention in recent years. Videofluoroscopic investigation of esophageal motor function is superior to static film radiography, as repeated analysis of the videotaped recordings is possible. With emphasis on radiological techniques, normal esophagel physiology and motility and a variety of esophageal motor disorders are discussed in this review paper. Radiological evaluation of gastroesophageal reflux and reflux esophagitis is described. Clinical and radiological findings in esophageal motility disorders and gastroesophageal reflux disease and the radiological efficacy compared to that of manometry and pH-metry are discussed. (orig.) [Deutsch] Die radiologische Untersuchung des Oesophagus kann nicht nur strukturelle Veraenderungen, sondern auch funktionelle Stoerungen mit einer hohen Treffsicherheit nachweisen. Die Videokinematographie ist hierbei der konventionellen Roentgenuntersuchung aufgrund der Moeglichkeit der wiederholten Analyse ueberlegen. Ziel der vorliegenden Uebersicht ist es, prinzipiell das radiologische Erscheinungsbild der normalen Funktion sowie diagnostische Kriterien fuer verschiedene Motilitaetsstoerungen zu demonstrieren. Weiterhin werden auch die verschiedenen Moeglichkeiten der radiologischen Refluxpruefung zur Untersuchung der Funktion des gastrooesophagealen Sphinkters verglichen und deren Wert diskutiert. Die Pruefung der Funktion von Oesophagus und gastrooesophagealem Sphinkter als ein integraler Bestandteil der Roentgenuntersuchung der Speiseroehre verbessert deren Treffsicherheit, wodurch die radiologische Untersuchung die primaere diagnostische Methode bei Patienten mit Schluckstoerungen darstellt.

    For the diagnostics of nerve lesions an imaging method is necessary to visualize peripheral nerves and their surrounding structures for an etiological classification. Clinical neurological and electrophysiological investigations provide functional information about nerve lesions. The information provided by a standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination is inadequate for peripheral nerve diagnostics; however, MRI neurography is suitable but on the other hand a resource and time-consuming method. Using ultrasonography for peripheral nerve diagnostics. With ultrasonography reliable diagnostics of entrapment neuropathies and traumatic nerve lesions are possible. The use of ultrasonography for neuropathies shows that a differentiation between different forms is possible. Nerve ultrasonography is an established diagnostic tool. In addition to the clinical examination and clinical electrophysiology, structural information can be obtained, which results in a clear improvement in the diagnostics. Ultrasonography has become an integral part of the diagnostic work-up of peripheral nerve lesions in neurophysiological departments. Nerve ultrasonography is recommended for the diagnostic work-up of peripheral nerve lesions in addition to clinical and electrophysiological investigations. It should be used in the clinical work-up of entrapment neuropathies, traumatic nerve lesions and spacy-occupying lesions of nerves. (orig.)

    In the present paper the author reports on the continuation of an OEKOR part project in which he had undertaken a chemical characterisation of emissions from domestic brown coal combustion. On the basis of a partitioning by land use of the Greater Leipzig region he initiated long-term observations of local pollution levels for the various structural types of land. The aim of the work was to facilitate a comprehensive analysis of local air quality in terms of VOC levels. The current concern about VOCs results from the toxicological risk they have been proven to pose to the human organism and from their relevance to the chemistry of the atmosphere (e.g., as precursors of ground-level ozone and other oxidising agents). The task to be accomplished was broken down into the following main steps: Development and trial of a sampling and analysis method for determining an as wide a spectrum of environmental VOCs as possible; elaboration of a measuring strategy for obtaining results of high representativeness and power; installation and operation of pollution monitoring sites in selected structural types of area characteristic of Leipzig; execution of measuring campaigns of several weeks each at selected sites during both winter and summer periods.

    Methoden zum Nachweis des (oeko-)toxikologischen Potential von Schadstoffen dar. In allen Experimenten konnten klare Zeit-Wirkungs- und Dosis-Wirkungs-Beziehungen aufgestellt werden. Isolierte Hepatocyten aus der Leber der Regebogenforelle reagieren empfindlicher als die parallel untersuchten permanenten Zellinien R1 und RTG-2. In Cytotoxizitaetstests mit den bibrocytischen Fischzellinien R1 und RTG-2 aus der Leber bzw. der Gonade der Regenbogenforelle wurden fuer verschiedene organische Schadstoffe und organische und anorganische Schwermetallverbindungen Cytotoxizitaetsdaten erhoben. Diese Erkenntnisse wurden einem Konzept fuer den Einsatz von mehrstugigen Zelltests zur Abschaetzung des oekotoxikologischen Potentials von Umweltschadstoffen zugrunde gelegt, das hier vorgestellt wird.

    Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are suitable methods for examination of the skull base. Whereas CT is used to evaluate mainly bone destruction e.g. for planning surgical therapy, MRI is used to show pathologies in the soft tissue and bone invasion. High resolution and thin slice thickness are indispensible for both modalities of skull base imaging. Detailed anatomical knowledge is necessary even for correct planning of the examination procedures. This knowledge is a requirement to be able to recognize and interpret pathologies. MRI is the method of choice for examining the cranial nerves. The total path of a cranial nerve can be visualized by choosing different sequences taking into account the tissue surrounding this cranial nerve. This article summarizes examination methods of the skull base in CT and MRI, gives a detailed description of the anatomy and illustrates it with image examples. (orig.) [German] Zur Untersuchung der Schaedelbasis sind sowohl die Computertomographie (CT) als auch Magnetresonanztomographie (MRT) geeignet. Waehrend mittels CT vorzugsweise die exakte knoecherne Ausbreitung von Pathologien z. B. zur operativen Therapieplanung erfasst werden, dient die MRT sowohl der Darstellung von Pathologien bzgl. ihrer Ausbreitung im Weichteilgewebe als auch dem Nachweis knoecherner Infiltration. Bei der Untersuchung der Schaedelbasis wird eine hochaufloesende Darstellung mit geringer Schichtdicke fuer beide Modalitaeten angestrebt. Die genaue Kenntnis der Anatomie ist bereits bei der Untersuchungsplanung notwendig. Sie ist zudem Voraussetzung fuer das Erkennen und die korrekte Interpretation von Pathologien. Die MRT ist die bildgebende Methode der Wahl zur Abklaerung von Pathologien der Hirnnerven. Dabei ist es durch gezielte Sequenzauswahl, die sich nach den die Hirnnerven umgebenen Strukturen richtet, moeglich, den gesamten Verlauf der Hirnnerven zu beurteilen. Dieser Artikel beschreibt die Untersuchung der Schaedelbasis

  6. Imaging technique and current status of valvular heart disease using cardiac MRI; Untersuchungstechniken und Stellenwert der MRT bei der Diagnostik von Herzklappenerkrankungen

    The main indications for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the evaluation of valvular heart disease are pathologies of the aortic and pulmonary valve. For mitral and tricuspid valve pathologies MRI is not the first line modality as these are usually well visualized by echocardiography. The advantages of MRI in valvular heart disease are a high reliability in the evaluation of ventricular volumes and function as well as the assessment of the perivalvular arterial or atrial structures. This reliability and the limitless access to any imaging plane partially compensates for the lower temporal and spatial resolution in comparison to echocardiography. In patients with congenital heart disease, cardiac MRI is established as a valuable diagnostic tool in daily clinical management, especially for the evaluation of pulmonary valve defects. Nevertheless, echocardiography remains the first-line diagnostic imaging tool for the foreseeable future. (orig.) [German] Die Untersuchung der Herzklappen in der MRT umfasst derzeit v. a. die Aorten- und Pulmonalisklappe. Pathologien der atrioventrikulaeren Klappen bilden demgegenueber nur selten die zentrale Fragestellung einer kardialen MRT-Untersuchung, da diese normalerweise einer echokardiographischen Untersuchung gut zugaenglich sind. Die Staerke der MRT ist die hohe Zuverlaessigkeit, mit der neben der Klappenmorphologie und -funktion die Funktionsparameter des jeweiligen Ventrikels und die Morphologie der nachgeschalteten Arterien bestimmt werden koennen. Dadurch kann die MRT die prinzipielle Schwaeche in der Orts- und Zeitaufloesung gegenueber der Echokardiographie teilweise kompensieren. Bei Patienten mit kongenitalen Herzvitien ist die MRT-basierte Klappendiagnostik fester Bestandteil des klinischen Managements. Das gilt besonders fuer die Evaluation der Pulmonalisklappe. Die Echokardiographie bleibt absehbar die Modalitaet der ersten Wahl fuer die Klappendiagnostik am Herzen. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Die Gefühle bzw. Emotionen der Lernenden beim Fremdsprachenlehr- und Lernprozess spielen eine wichtige Rolle. Mit der Verknüpfung der Emotion und Kognition beim Lernprozess, haben die positiven Gefühle eine große Bedeutung für den Lernerfolg. Als eine produktive Fertigkeit hat das Sprechen eine wesentlich intensive Beziehung mit den Emotionen, weil es in der realen Zeit fließend laufen muss. Der Lernende soll bei der Sprechproduktion spontan die richtigen Wörter auf die richtige Art und Weise anwenden und sie auch noch verständlich aussprechen. Leider erreicht die Sprechfertigkeit meistens eine niedrigere Niveaustufe als die anderen drei (Schreiben, Lesen und Hören Fertigkeiten im Fremdsprachenunterrichtprozess. Diese qualitative Untersuchung konzentriert sich auf die Daten (Tonaufnahme, die anhand eines Interviews während einer Sprechproduktionsübung im universitären Fremdsprachenunterricht gesammelt wurden. Um die emotionale Dimension der Lernenden während der Sprechproduktion zu identifizieren, wurden im Einzelinterview die Frage „Wie fühlst du dich während du eine Fremdsprache (Englisch sprichst?“ gestellt. Die Teilnehmer dieser Untersuchung waren 29 Studenten, die im WS 2016 - 2017 an Universität Nevşehir Hacı Bektaş Veli (Türkei immatrikuliert waren. Die Auswertung des Interviews folgte mit einer Transkription und einer Interpretation der Tonaufnahmen. Die Meinungen zu der emotionalen Dimension während der Sprechproduktion der Studenten wurden kategorisiert. Die Resultate dieser qualitativen Untersuchung zeigen, dass die emotionale Dimension der Lernenden im universitären Kontext sich in drei Kategorien (positiv, negativ und frühere Ausbildung verteilen.

    In the research project on the ''Review and development of safety-related assessments of disposal facilities with negligible heat generation; development and provision of the necessary set of tools, using the example of the Konrad disposal facility'' (3612R03410), the state of the art in science and technology of the safety-related assessments and sets of tools for building a safety case was examined. The reports pertaining to the two work packages described the further development of the methodology for accident analyses (WP 1) and of building a safety case (WP 2); also, comparisons were drawn on a national and international scale with the methods applied in the licensing procedure of the Konrad disposal facility. A safety case as well as its underlying analyses and methods always has to be brought up to date with the development of the state of the art in science and technology. In Germany, two safety cases regarding the long-term safety of disposal facilities have been prepared. These are the licensing documentation for the Konrad disposal facility in the year 1990 and the research project regarding the preliminary safety case for the Gorleben site (Vorlaeufige Sicherheitsanalyse Gorleben - VSG) in the year 2013, both reflecting the state of development of building a safety case at the respective time. Comparing the two above-mentioned examples of safety cases and taking recent international recommendations and national regulations into account, this report on Work Package 2 presents the development of the international state of the art in science and technology. This has been done by summarising the essential differences and similarities of each element of the safety case for the Konrad disposal facility on the one hand and the VSG and the international status on the other hand.

    The `hydrostatic machines` project was concerned with the examination of sealing and bearing gaps in hydraulic machines with the aim of creating a useful simulation tool for designing these gaps. In order to achieve this difficult target, extensive experimental investigations were carried out. A simulation program for the static calculation of sealing and bearing gaps was developed for the key gap bearing and the valve gap. The third main point of the experimental investigations was the examination of the piston/cylinder gap of a radial piston pump. The simulation was able to be verified from experimental results. (orig./AKF) [Deutsch] Das Projekt `Hydrostatische Maschinen` befasste sich mit der Untersuchung hydrostatischen Dicht- und Lagerfugen in hydraulischen Maschinen mit Ziel, fuer die Auslegung dieser Spalte ein handhabbares Simulationswerkzeug zu schaffen. Um dieses hochgesteckte Ziel zu erreichen, wurden umfangreiche experimentelle Untersuchungen durchgefuehrt. Fuer die Keilspaltlagerung und den Ventilsplat wurde ein Simulationsprogramm fuer die stationaere Berechnung von Dicht- und Lagerfugen entwickelt. Der dritte Schwerpunkt der experimentellen Untersuchungen war die Untersuchung des Kolben-Zylinder-Spaltes einer Radialkolbenpumpe. Die Simulation konnte anhand der experimentellen Ergebnisse verifiziert werden. (orig./AKF)

    Full Text Available Das Phänomen Liebe nicht - wie im Alltagsgebrauch - als substantielle Entität, sondern als kommunikativ erzeugte Lebenswirklichkeit zu begteifen, ist Ziel der Untersuchung gewesen. Zu diesem Zweck wurde eine vergleichende Fallstudie zum Liebeskonzept brasilianischer und deutscher Studenten durchgeführt. Theoretische Grundlage der Untersuchung bildete ein im weitesten Sinne konstruktivistisches Verständnis von Kommunikation als wirklichkeitserzeugendem Verhaltensbereich. In einer theoretischen Einführung wurde der Wirklichkeitsbereich Liebe unter Einbeziehung des jeweiligen historisch-kulturellen Hintergrundes fokussiert. Die methodische Vorgehensweise bei der Durchführung der Studie war schließlich überwiegend qualitativ angelegt, um das für den Einzelnen tatsächlich relevante Begriffsinventar ermitteln zu können. In der Auswertung sind dann die Unterschiede im Hinblick auf die Internalisierung eines Liebesideals, die Strukturen der Beziehungswirklichkeit, ihre sprachliche Handhabung, die Verhaltenskoordination, die Funktion von Beziehungen sowie die Folgen für die Kommunikationspraxis herausgestellt worden. Es zeigte sich, dass Liebesbeziehungen unter deutschen Studenten stark vom romantischen Liebesideal geprägt sind, unter brasilianischen Studenten dagegen am ehesten dem passionierten Liebesiedel entsprechen.

    The examination of electron-positron pairs which are emitted in heavy-ion collisions at the Coulomb barrier was continued with the newly designed EPoS II spectrometer at the UNILAC accelerator. The objective of the experiments was to further analyse the narrow line structures in the positron-electron cumulative energy distributions, which were observed in preceding measurements examining the collision systems U 238 + Th 232 and U 238 + Ta181 with the EPOS I spectrometer. By means of a reproduction experiment, the existence of the lines was statistically verified relying on a large data pool.

    The term ''acute abdomen'' does not describe a specific disease entity but is more a critical clinical state which incorporates very heterogeneous clinical presentations. The prognosis of any disease depends on the time frame from the onset of symptoms to the initiation of a specific therapy. For this reason there are special expectations by clinicians regarding the diagnostic assessment provided by radiology which is expected to deliver an immediate diagnosis supporting further therapeutic decisions. Along with the patient's clinical history, physical examination and blood tests, radiological diagnostics are essential for enabling a specific treatment. From a surgical point of view the radiologist is expected to help in differentiating between cases with indications for emergency surgery and cases eligible for elective surgery or conservative treatment. (orig.) [German] Der Begriff ''akutes Abdomen'' stellt keine eigenstaendige Erkrankung dar, sondern beschreibt einen kritischen klinischen Zustand, unter dessen Oberbegriff sich die unterschiedlichsten Krankheitsbilder subsumieren lassen. Das Zeitintervall zwischen dem Auftreten der ersten Symptome bis zur Einleitung einer gezielten Therapie ist fuer die Prognose der Patienten der entscheidende Faktor. Aus diesem Grund bestehen besondere Anforderungen an die bildgebende Diagnostik, die dazu beitragen soll, innerhalb kuerzester Zeit eine moeglichst genaue Diagnose zu stellen. Neben Anamnese, klinischer Untersuchung und Labordiagnostik stellt die radiologische Untersuchung einen wesentlichen Baustein vor der Therapieeinleitung dar. Aus chirurgischer Sicht muessen Krankheitsbilder, die eine sofortige Notfalloperation erforderlich machen, von Erkrankungen differenziert werden, die eine elektive Chirurgie oder ein konservatives Vorgehen indizieren.

    Grundmann, U.; Mittag, S.; Rohde, U.

    1999-01-01

    Analyzing the safety margins in transients and accidents of nuclear reactors 3-dimensional models of the core were used to avoid conservative assumptions needed for point kinetics or 1-dimensional models. Therefore, the 3D code DYN3D has been developed for the analysis of reactivity initiated accidents (RIA) in thermal nuclear reactors. The power distributions are calculated with the help of nodal expansion methods (NEM) for hexagonal and Cartesian geometry. The fuel rod model and the thermohydraulic part provide fuel temperatures, coolant temperatures and densities as well as boron concentrations for the calculation of feedback effects on the basis of cross section libraries generated by cell codes. Safety relevant parameters like maximum fuel and cladding temperatures, critical heat flux and degree of cladding oxidation are estimated. DYN3D can analyze RIA initiated by moved control rods and/or perturbations of the coolant flow. Stationary and transient boundary conditions for the coolant flow, the core inlet temperatures and boron concentrations at the core inlet have to be given. For analyzing more complex transients the code DYN3D is coupled with the plant model ATHLET of the GRS. The extensive validation work accomplished for DYN3D is presented in several examples. Some applications of the code are described. (orig.) [Deutsch] Die Verwendung 3-dimensionaler Kernmodelle zur Untersuchung der Sicherheitsreserven bei Uebergangsprozessen und Stoerfaellen in Kernreaktoren vermeidet konservative Annahmen, die bei der Benutzung des Punktmodells oder 1-dimensionaler Modelle erforderlich sind. Aus diesen Gruenden wurde das 3-dimensionale Rechenprogramm DYN3D fuer die Untersuchung von Reaktivitaetsstoerfaellen in thermischen Reaktoren entwickelt. Die Leistungsverteilung wird mit nodalen Methoden fuer hexagonale oder kartesische Geometrie berechnet. Das Brennstabmodell und der thermohydraulische Teil von DYN3D liefert die Brennstofftemperaturen, Kuehlmitteltemperaturen

    For the case reported, both morphological and functional diagnostic examination methods were applied, such as MRI and CT, or SPECT using ECD as a tracer. The bilateral, occipital lesion finally could be detected with the SPECT examinations, and SPECT findings were clearly better than MRI findings, whereas even restrospective analysis of the CT images failed to show the lesion. Thus the functional imaging method in this case of a discrete bilateral occipital lesion was the most sentitive method. (orig./CB) [German] In unserem Fallbeispiel wurden sowohl morphologische (MRT, CT) als auch funktionelle Bildgebung (SPECT unter Verwendung von ECD als Tracer) ad extensum zur Diagnosefindung verwendet. Die bilaterale okzipitale Defektbildung konnte schliesslich mittels SPECT-Untersuchung deutlich besser dargestellt werden als mittels MRT. In der CT gelangte der Befund - auch bei retrospektiver Betrachtung - ueberhaupt nicht zur Darstellung. Damit war die funktionelle Bildgebung im Falle dieser diskreten bilateralen okzipitalen Defektbildung die sensitivste Methode. (orig.)

    1999-01-01

    Das Ziel der Untersuchung von ultra-relativistischen Schwerionenkollisionen ist die Suche nach dem Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP), einem Zustand hochdichter stark wechselwirkender Materie in dem der Einschluss von Quarks und Gluonen in Hadronen aufgehoben ist. Die bisher gewonnenen experimentellen Hinweise deuten daraufhin,daß in Schwerionenkollisionen bei den derzeit höchsten zur Verfügung stehenden Energien von 158 GeV/Nukleon in Pb+Pb Reaktionen am CERN-SPS die Rahmenbedingungen für einen Phasenübergang von hadronischer Materie zu einer partonischen Phaseerfüllt sind. Die exakte Phasenstruktur stark wechselwirkender Materie hingegen ist derzeit noch nicht vollständig verstanden. Da inklusive hadronische Observablen und "penetrierende Proben" nicht direkt sensitiv auf die Existenz und Natur des Phasenübergangs sind, wurde die Analyse von Einzelereignis-"event-by-event"-Fluktuationenvorgeschlagen. Das Fluktuationsverhalten von Einzelereignis-Observablen sollte direkt sensitiv auf die Natur des zu beobachte...

    Full Text Available Das Prostatakarzinom stellt heute in der westlichen Welt das am häufigsten diagnostizierte Karzinom beim Mann dar. Entsprechend dieser Häufigkeit werden zunehmend radikale Prostatektomien durchgeführt. Die histologische Aufarbeitung des Operationspräparates liefert dem Urologen die wichtigsten Prognosefaktoren des Prostatakarzinoms. Hierbei besteht ein enger Zusammenhang zwischen der extraprostatischen Ausdehnung des Tumors und seiner Beziehung zu den Resektionsrändern. Anhand einer eigenen Untersuchung an 200 radikal operierten Prostatakarzinomen konnte gezeigt werden, dass hierbei die Lokalisation, der Malignitätsgrad und die Größe des Tumors entscheidende Bedeutung haben. Die Ermittlung dieser Parameter ist abhängig von einer standardisierten Untersuchungstechnik auf der Grundlage einer vollständigen histologischen Aufarbeitung der Prostata.

    Full Text Available Karin Schwiter untersucht in der vorliegenden Studie, wie junge Erwachsene über ihre Zukunftspläne sprechen und welche Vorstellungen bezüglich ihrer Zukunft sie dabei entwerfen. Die Untersuchung zeichnet sich gegenüber älteren Forschungen zu diesem Thema unter anderem aus durch einen Geschlechtervergleich, die raumzeitliche Fokussierung auf die Deutschschweiz sowie ein diskursanalytisches Vorgehen in Anlehnung an Foucault. Das Ergebnis ist ein anregendes Buch, in dem die Autorin auf der Basis der Erzählungen von 24 jungen Frauen und Männern gesellschaftstheoretische Deutungen und Ausblicke entwickelt. Diese belegen, wie sich neoliberale Ideen von Individualität und fortbestehende Geschlechternormen miteinander so verschränken, dass Thematisierungen geschlechtlicher Ungleichheit kaum mehr möglich scheinen.

    Full Text Available Mein Artikel besteht aus drei Abschnitten: Der erste Teil beschäftigt sich mit Nietzsches Gebrauch des Begriffs der „Immanenz“; ich werde diesen Gebrauch nachzeichnen. Mein zweiter Punkt ist ein allgemeinerer: Ich möchte den Fokus auf die Frage legen, ob es für Nietzsche möglich ist, ein starkes Konzept von Immanenz zu vertreten, insbesondere wenn wir uns in Erinnerung rufen, dass Nietzsche eine deutliche Opposition zu allen Vorstellungen von Transzendenz formuliert. Soll hier irgendeine Art von Immanenz bewahrt werden? Der dritte Abschnitt beinhaltet eine eingehendere Untersuchung von zwei Passagen aus Jenseits von Gut und Böse (Abschnitte 2 und 6. Ich denke, dass sich in diesen Passagen wichtige Aspekte aufzeigen lassen, insbesondere mit Hinblick auf die Frage, ob Nietzsche irgendeine Art von Vorstellung oder ein Konzept der Immanenz vertritt.

    The project aims at modernizing school buildings with atria in terms of their thermal energy consumption and, simultaneously, at the optimization of daylighting. The basic idea was to cover the atria with glass roofs to make a building more compact, so that the reduced thermal energy transmission area would drastically cut down specific thermal energy demand without imparing daylighting. The energetic and thermal characteristics of the building are analysed and experience gathered after its modernization, also regarding daylighting, is discussed.

    Full Text Available Die folgenden Darlegungen stützen sich auf Untersuchungsergebnisse des Verlassers zur Sprachentwicklung in der Ontogenese. Angeregt wurde die UnterSuchung durch die besonders in den letzten Jahren in mehreren Ländern verstärkt erhobenen Forderungen, nicht nur die Sprache des Klein­ kindes, sondern vornehmlich den Entwicklungsstand der Schülersprache auf den einzelnen Klassenstufen zu erforschen und den Prozeß der Sprachentwicklung des Schülers genauer zu bestimmen. Die Forderungen sind (so z. B. in der DDR durch das Bestreben motiviert, weitere wissenschaftliche Voraussetzungen für die Verbesserung der muttersprachlichen Bildung und Erzliehung zu schaffen. Es geht also vor allem um Bedürfnisse des Muttersprachunterrichts, die aus der gesellschaftlichen Bedeutung der Sprache überhaupt und den steigenden Anforderungen an die gesellschaftliche Kommunikation insbesondere erwachsen.

  1. Robert Schumann and translation: poetic creativity, simultaneity and movement

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available In diesem Aufsatz werden die Gesammelten Schriften über Musik und Musiker von Robert Schumann untersucht, insbesondere die Rezensionen, die der Komponist zwischen 1834 und 1836 verfasst hat. Es soll festgestellt werden, inwiefern sich darin die wichtigsten Auffassungen über Sprache und Übersetzung, die Ende des 18. und Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts in Deutschland entstanden, wiederfinden. Im Vordergrund der Untersuchung steht die Dimension der Bewegung, die sich sowohl im Individuum als auch in der Zeit festmachen lässt. Im Individuum manifestiert sich die Bewegung als ein sehr persönlicher Vorgang, da es sich innerhalb verschiedener Zeichensysteme bewegt, die seine Gedanken ausdrücken; oder aber es bewegt sich innerhalb verschiedener Sprachen. Die Zeitdimension wiederum bedeutet, in ein Umfeld einzutauchen, das die Zeitbarrieren überwindet und die Vergangenheit auf einen Schlag mit der Gegenwart und der Zukunft verbindet.

    This investigation was carried out on behalf of the Environmental Office of the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen. Apart from the current and projected exhaust purification systems, also three exemplary systems were analyzed from the ecological and economic point of view. Effects on pollutant freights were established in consideration of energy consumption and the specific cost of waste treatment for each technology. [German] Das konkrete Ziel dieser vom Landesumweltamt NRW vergebenen Untersuchung war es, neben einer Uebersicht ueber die zzt. eingesetzten und auch geplanten Abgasreinigungssysteme (RGR) bei Muellverbrennungsanlagen, die Vor- und die Nachteile von 3 beispielhaft ausgewaehlten Systemen in einem oekologischen und oekonomischen Vergleich knapp und begrenzt darstellen zu lassen. Als Ergebnis wurden die Auswirkungen der unterschiedlichen Verfahren auf die Frachten der emittierten Schadstoffe unter Beruecksichtigung der unterschiedlichen Energieverbraeuche ermittelt und dargestellt. Darueber hinaus wurden die spezifischen Muellbehandlungskosten bei den jeweiligen Gasreinigungstechniken errechnet. (orig.)

    This work`s scientific interest focuses on the study of the complex interactions of the phases in condensation processes in aerosol systems, both as a basis for `primary` separation techniques for particles of a given geometry, such as, for instance, asbestos fibres, and for the optimization of absorption processes, where particle elimination is a `secondary` effect. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Mittelpunkt des wiss. Interesses dieser Arbeit steht daher die Untersuchung des komplexen Zusammenwirkens der Phasen bei Kondensationsvorgaengen in Aerosolsystemen sowohl als Grundlage fuer ein `primaeres` Abscheideverfahren fuer Partikeln beliebiger Geometrie, wie z.B. Asbestfasern, als auch fuer die Optimierung von Absorptionsprozessen, wo die Partikelabscheidung als `sekundaerer` Effekt nicht vorrangig im Mittelpunkt des Verfahrens steht. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Durch die Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung wurde der Blick der Wohlfahrtsstaatsanalysen auf die unbezahlte Arbeit von Ehefrauen und Müttern sowie die wohlfahrtsstaatlichen Reformen für diese Gruppen ausgedehnt. Die vorliegende Untersuchung knüpft an die zunächst auf Mutterschaftskonzepte zentrierte Wohlfahrtsstaatsforschung an, geht jedoch darüber hinaus, indem sie den Gegenstandsbereich um die Erforschung der Vater- und Elternschaft erweitert.Thanks to women’s and gender studies, the analysis of social welfare states has expanded to include the unpaid work of wives and mothers, as well as the social welfare reforms for these groups. The study at hand begins with the current research on social welfare states that center on concepts of motherhood but expands the area of study to include the examination of fatherhood and parenthood.

Ihre Monographie schließt nicht nur eine Forschungslücke im Hinblick auf die wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit der Autorin, sondern bereichert auch die methodologische Fachdiskussion innerhalb der Literaturwissenschaften; ihr Analyseinstrumentarium ist vielseitig einsetzbar. Eine besondere Stärke der Untersuchung stellt zudem die umfassende Berücksichtigung medialer Veränderungen (z. B. Leser_innen als Kritiker_innen dar. Die immer wieder angesprochenen Genderaspekte – insbesondere die Interpretation von Hermanns gewandelter Strategie als erfolgreiche Inszenierung von ‚Natürlichkeit‘ – hätten stellenweise einer eingehenderen gendertheoretischen Reflexion bedurft.

    Postoperative management of patients suffering from symptoms of the temporomandibular joint does not differ considerably from the one of preoperative examination protocols. Knowledge of previous surgery helps to plan patient work-up and to interpret normal postoperative findings (eminectomy, discectomy, susceptibility artefacts from metallic residues..) and typical complications (intraarticular loose bodies, dislocations, avascular necrosis, foreign body granulomatous reactions) appropriately. (orig.) [German] Wie auch in anderen Koerperregionen differiert das Diagnoseprotokoll von prae- und postoperativen Patienten mit Beschwerden des Kiefergelenks nicht wesentlich voneinander. Die Kenntnis des vorangegangenen Eingriffs hilft allerdings, die Untersuchung entsprechend zu planen und den Befund im Kontext richtig zu bewerten, um moegliche Komplikationen (intraartikulaere Fragmente, Dislokationen, avaskulaere Nekrose, Fremdkoerperreaktionen) und zu erwartende Befunde (Eminektomie, Diskektomie, Metallartefakte usw.) richtig zu interpretieren.

    Full Text Available Vera Cuntz-Leng brilliert mit einer queertheoretischen Untersuchung der Romanreihe um den Zauberlehrling Harry Potter und ihrer Verfilmung, die beide durch eine Form der Fanfiction, dem Slash, einer queeren Auswertung ausgesetzt sind. Mit der Verzahnung von queertheoretischer Relektüre und der Analyse queerer Fanpraxis gelingt es der Autorin herauszustellen, weshalb sich die Septalogie herausragender Beliebtheit bei queerer Harry-Potter-Fan-Art erfreut. Sie erweitert dadurch nicht nur den Blickwinkel auf das Phänomen Harry Potter, das durch das inflationäre Neu- und Weiterschreiben durch Fans ein Eigenleben entwickelt hat. Sie trägt damit auch zur Verwissenschaftlichung des Subgenres Fantasy bei und dem mangelnden Interesse der Queer Theory am popkulturellen Phänomen des Fandom Rechnung.

    The author attempted to verify the assumptions and simplifications of common mathematical models of small-scale steam reformers. The emphasis was on the derivation of important model parameters on the basis of easily identifiable catalyst, fluid and reactor characteristics. An easily validated 2D model of a reformer tube is then used for a wide sensitivity analysis and a comparative investigation of various reactor types. [German] Die Motivation dieser Arbeit liegt in der Ueberpruefung der bislang in mathematischen Modellen von kleintechnischen Dampfreformern getroffenen Annahmen und Vereinfachungen, mit speziellem Augenmerk auf die Aufklaerung der Herkunft wichtiger Modellparameter anhand von leicht bestimmbaren Katalysator-, Fluid- und Reaktoreigenschaften. Ein leicht zu validierendes, zweidimensionales Modell eines Reformerrohres soll im Anschluss fuer eine breit angelegte Sensitivitaetsanalyse und eine vergleichende Untersuchung verschiedener Reaktortypen dienen.

    Aim: In recent years, FDG-PET examinations have become more important for problems in oncology, especially in staging of bronchogenic carcinoma. In the retrospective study presented here, the influence of PET on the planning of radiotherapy for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) was investigated. Methods: The study involved 39 patients with NSCLC who had been examined by PET for staging. They received radiotherapy on the basis of the anterior/posterior portals including the primary tumour and the mediastinum planned according to CT- and bronchoscopic findings. The results of the PET examination were not considered in initial radiotherapy planning. The portals were retrospectively redefined on the basis of FDG uptake considering the size and localization of the primary tumour; and FDG activities outside the mediastinal part of the portals. Results: In 15 out of 39 patients, the CT/PET-planned portals differed from the CT-planned ones. In most cases (n = 12) the CT/PET field was smaller than the CT field. The median geometric field size of the portals was 179 cm{sup 2}, after redefinition using PET 166 cm{sup 2}. In 20 patients with disturbed ventilation caused by the tumour (atelectosis, dystelectosis), a correction of the portal was suggested significantly more frequently than in the other patients (p = 0.03). Conclusions: Our results demonstrate the synergism of topographical (CT) and metabolic (FDG-PET) information, which could be helpful in planning radiotherapy of bronchial carcinoma, especially for patients with disturbed ventilation. (orig.) [German] Ziel: Die FDG-PET-Untersuchung hat in den vergangenen Jahren bei onkologischen Fragestellungen insbesondere beim Staging des Bronchialkarzinoms wachsende Bedeutung erlangt.

    Full Text Available The University of Aachen harbored for years the main centre of Studies on Imagology of Germany and perhaps of the world. The Center was founded by Hugo Dyserinck, who, in 1966, with the article "Zum Problem der 'images' und 'mirages' und ihrer Untersuchung im Rahmen der vergleichenden Literaturwissenschaft" opened the doors to a new Imagology. He gathered there disciples, who roamed the new horizons with extensive research, which led to the publication of the collection "Aachener Beiträge zur Komparatistik". In Brazil, the influence of Dyserinck was also felt, for example, in the publication of my book Do cá e do lá. Introdução à Imagologia, whose content is in part commented and illustrated.

    As requested by the Ministry of Agriculture of the FRG, the 'Verband Deutscher Landwirtschaftlicher Untersuchungs- und Forschungsanstalten (VDLUFA)' built up a data collection over chlorinated hydrocarbons and PCBs in field soils, sediments, sewage sludges. Nearly 70.000 samples were collected and statistically evaluated. The results of these investigations will be described. The major constituents of the chlorinated hydrocarbons generally were Lindane, DDT(total) and HCB. In sewage sludges PCBs could be detected in nearly every sample. The contents of PCBs in field soils are smaller than in sewage sludges. Rather 'high contents', greater than 100-200 μg/kg d.m./organic pollutants, were detected only in 2% of the samples. 7 refs., 5 figs., 2 tabs
