This thesis investigates the potential use of an acoustic sensing technique called Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) for non-invasive and non-destructive study of microorganisms’ adhesive bond to surfaces. We have shown that QCM indeed can be used to study bacterial adhesion, or more specifically, that the QCM can be used to study the stiffness of the adhesive bond.
Many major Dutch companies publish extensive information about climate impact in their annual reports. However, very few companies provide concrete, detailed information about their own CO2 emissions, the impact of climate change on their business...
