Compact LCOS projection displays for high-quality 3D images with high spatial and angular resolution Ghent University
The introduction of threedimensional displays is probably the next important step towards more realistic imaging systems. This project envisages the realization of a display system that can generate a four dimensional light field approximating the real light distribution that emanates from an object or surrounding. To accomplish this, different images are projected in a sufficient number of different observation directions.

FWO-SB-Beurs: Innovating Yeast Display for the selection of nanobodies for difficult targets Vrije Universiteit Brussel
This book is about the history of the Brussels shopping landscape during the nineteenth century. Although the increasing commercialization of the nineteenth-century urban landscape has long been a topos in historiography, the entirety and diversity of shopping spaces has not yet been the object of thorough research. For decades, historians of retail and shopping have mostly been concerned with ‘modern’ forms of retail, such as the ...
Particle-surface interactions in nonpolar liquids Ghent University
Electrophoretic ink displays are a technology offering the quality of printed paper and very low
power consumption. They contain electrically charged black and white pigment particles in a
nonpolar liquid such as oil, that can be moved around by applying appropriate voltages. This way,
every pixel of the display can be made either black or white. For low energy consumption the
particles need to stay at the surface when no ...
In a normal robotic surgical procedure only vision and position feedback is available. Without an equivalent to the sense of touch the surgeon cannot rely anymore on palpation to differentiate between healthy and sick tissue, or to find his/her way into complex often fragile body areas. The proposed research is dedicated to restore the sense of touch, in all its facets, to the surgeon in a robotic surgical procedure where the robot touches ...
Artificial or xeno nucleic acids (XNAs) present an alternative to natural genetic polymers by expanding chemical diversity and improving chemical and biological stability, with potential applications in, for example, therapeutics. XNA differs from its natural counterparts by modifications applied to the nucleobases, sugar-phosphate backbone, nucleotide leaving group, or a combination of these. In the long run, XNA could form the basis of an ...
Colloidal Transition Metal Chalcogenide Nanosheets and Quantum Dots, a New Class of Nanomaterials, from Synthesis towards Application. Ghent University
Nanomaterials have attracted tremendous attention in science and technology as their behaviour
is very different from their bulk analogues. While bulk gold is unreactive and reflects light, its
nanoscalar counterpart is reactive and capable of absorbing a significant part of incident light. Tiny
semiconductors crystals, so-called quantum dots, emit light with a color according to their size. A
single layer of carbon atoms ...
