Modeling spatial inhomogeneities in solar cells (MSc Thesis)
Modeling spatial inhomogeneities in solar cells (MSc Thesis)
Microscopic spatial defects (inhomogeneities) in solar cells have a detrimental impact on the overall performance of the solar cells. These defects can be due to the polycrystalline nature of the photovoltaic absorber (general case) or on the other hand, the characterization method itself can induce such inhomogeneities (ex: local excitation with confocal system). Photoluminescence imaging in particular is the most attractive type of experimental character- ization technique which has been studied by many research groups. Since it is contactless, it allows a complete analysis of the photovoltaic material and it can actually be performed at each step of the solar cell fabrication process. To properly analyze the recorded images, one has to model the transport properties. In this work we model the transport properties in 2D using both a numerical and analytic approach. First,we model the global illumination of the sample, we then analyze the effects of grains and surface recombination. Second, we study lateral transport that can be influenced by recombination at the surface (passivation issues), grain boundaries (polycrystalline cells) or local artifacts (shunts, defects...). At the same time we are able to extract the lifetime knowing the generation rate and solving the excess carrier density from our model. And finally we implement our model to extract some cell parameters like the diffusion length from experimental data through data fitting.

General Game Player
General Game Player
General Game Playing (GGP) is the playing of a wide variety games you may have never seen before, by being told nothing but the rules of the game at run time. This sets it apart from traditional specific game players, like the famous chess player Deep Blue. Deep Blue can beat the world chess champion at chess however, it has absolutely no idea how to play checkers. It is designed for one particular game and cannot adapt to rule changes, and certainly cannot play entirely different games. The goal of this project is to create a program that will play a wide variety of 2d games given descriptions of their rules without the creator of the program having ever known of the games. This report will cover the design and implementation of this project, as well as the background research performed and reflections on the outcome of the project.

Studies in particle astrophysics with the ANITA experiment
Studies in particle astrophysics with the ANITA experiment
The Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) is a NASA long-duration balloon experiment with the primary goal of detecting ultra-high-energy (\(> 10^{18}\)eV) neutrinos via the Askaryan Effect. In the fourth ANITA mission, the Tunable Universal Filter Frontend (TUFF) boards were deployed for mitigation of narrow-band, anthropogenic noise with tunable, switchable notch filters. They contributed to a factor of 2.8 higher total instrument livetime in ANITA-4 compared to ANITA-3. A search for a diffuse flux of ultra-high-energy neutrinos was conducted using the data collected during the ANITA-3 flight with a new approach where the Antarctic ice area is sectioned off into bins and a search is performed with different thresholds in different bins. The binned analysis methods were extended to the development of a search for neutrinos from Gamma Ray Bursts, implementing constraints in time, and for the first time, in direction. Lower analysis thresholds were achieved in a feasibility search even when extending the search to include longer afterglow periods. Authored with osudiss-2.cls (v0.9.1)

Estudo da Performance de Algoritmos de Criptografia em Dispositivos de Internet das Coisas
Este trabalho apresenta o estudo da performance de algoritmos de criptografia em plataformas de Internet das Coisas. O presente trabalho tem como objetivo estudar o funcionamento de algoritmo de criptografia simétrico AES e assimétrico RSA e aplicá-los a ambientes de Internet das Coisas, para que se possa avaliar o impacto na performance dos mesmos. Assim como, aplicar algoritmos de criptografia na camada de rede, na tentativa de garantir a segurança dos dados trocados em um ambiente de Internet das Coisas. Através do estudo, foi verificado que algoritmos assimétricos possuem maior impacto na performance do dispositivo, pois se baseam em cálculos complexos. Com isso, foram escolhidas plataformas utilizadas em prototipagem para mensurar o impacto no processamento. Ao realizar os testes, foi possível provar o impacto na rede e ajudar, através dos dados coletados, a escolher o algoritmo que melhor se adequa ao ambiente de Internet das Coisas, assim como, às necessidades de segurança dos mesmos.

Tesi di Laurea - Calcestruzzo Fibro-Rinforzato ad Alta Prestazione (HPFRC) per il Rinforzo Strutturale
Negli ultimi anni l’attenzione verso il restauro e il rinforzo di costruzioni esistenti in calcestruzzo armato è gradualmente incrementata, specialmente per l’esistenza di numerose strutture edificate secondo norme superate che di conseguenza non rispettano i requisiti previsti dalle normative attuali. Al fine di aumentare la vita utile delle costruzioni o per effettuare adeguamenti sismici, ripristini delle capacità portanti o anche a seguito di incrementi dei sovraccarichi, diventa fondamentale l’aumento delle capacità portanti di strutture esistenti, con specifico riferimento agli edifici costruiti prima degli anni 60’ del ventesimo secolo. Le consuete tecniche di rinforzo sono caratterizzate dall’impiego di incamiciature in calce- struzzo armato con spessori elevati, che causano un eccessivo aumento nelle dimensioni delle costruzioni. È stata studiata l’eventualità di poter moderare apprezzabilmente lo spessore di que- sto tipo di rinforzo attraverso l’uso di incamiciature realizzate con calcestruzzi fibro-rinforzati ad elevate prestazioni (HPFRC - High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete). Secondo indagini diagnostiche compiute su numerosi edifici, si è notato che in passato si siano spesso utilizzati calcestruzzi di scarseggiante qualità e oltre ad esservi problemi legati alla necessità di miglioramento o adeguamento sismico, vi è l’esigenza di provvedere ad un significativo incremento della capacità portante nei confronti dei carichi gravitazionali. Questa tesi focalizza l’attenzione sull'incremento di resistenza su elementi in calcestruzzo armato che presentano una bassa percentuale di armatura o armature a taglio inadeguate, utilizzando incamiciature con calcestruzzo fibro-rinforzato ad alta prestazione di ridotti spessori.

Graduation Thesis - High Performance Fibre-Reinforced Concrete (HPFRC) for Structural Strengthening
Graduation Thesis - High Performance Fibre-Reinforced Concrete (HPFRC) for Structural Strengthening
In recent years the attention towards the restoration and strengthening of existing buildings built with reinforced concrete has gradually increased, especially because of the existence of numerous structures built according to outdated standards that consequently do not respect the requirements under current regulations. In order to increase the useful life of buildings or to make seismic adjustments, restoration of the bearing capacities or also as a result of increases in overloads, the increase of the carrying capacity of existing structures becomes fundamental, with specific reference to buildings built before the 60s of the twentieth century. The usual strengthening techniques are characterized by the use of thick reinforced concrete jackets, which cause an excessive increase in the dimensions of the buildings. It was studied the possibility of being able to moderate appreciably the thickness of this type of strengthening through the use of jackets made with High Performance Fibre-Reinforced Concrete (HPFRC). According to diagnostic investigations carried out on many buildings, it was noticed that in the past it was often used scarce quality concrete and in addition to problems related to the need for seismic improvement or adaptation, there is a need to provide a significant increase in the bearing capacity of the gravitational loads. This thesis focuses on the increase of resistance on reinforced concrete elements that have a low percentage of reinforcement or inadequate shear reinforcement, using High Performance Fibre-Reinforced Concrete jackets of reduced thickness.
