Atomic interactions at the (100) diamond surface and the impact of surface and interface changes on the electronic transport properties - DEFERME, Wim
Centuries and centuries already, diamond is a material that speaks to ones imagination. Till the 18th century it wa only mined in India, after it was also found in Brazil and South-Africa. But along the fascinating properties of diamond, it is also a very interesting material for industry. After the discovery at the end of the 18th century that diamond consists of carbon, it took until the 50's of the previous century before research groups from Russia, Japan and the USA were able to reproduce the growth process of diamond. In 1989 it was discovered that the surface of intrinsic,...
Multimodal selection in virtual environments: Enhancing the user experience and facilitating development - VANACKEN, Lode
The usage of virtual environments is manifold, from visualisation and interaction with molecular data to medical applications. Virtual environments are represented in three dimensions and display technology to visualise such environments has significantly improved. Besides visual feedback, other types of feedback in virtual environments, such as haptics and audio, are gaining importance. We explore the possible benefits of these types of feedback. In this dissertation we focus on one of the four primary interaction techniques which must be supported for interactive virtual environments, namely selection. Our efforts during this dissertation are twofold. Firstly, we perform research into selection techniques augmented...
