    Aim: The aim of this Ph.D. thesis is to enhance understanding of the relation between maternal diet, gestational weight gain (GWG), and offspring’s cardio-metabolic factors. Moreover, the objective is to identify dietary predictors for excessive GWG. ...
  • Eysteinsdóttir, Jenna Huld (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2017-12-08)
    Abstract Psoriasis is a chronic immune-mediated inflammatory skin disease with profound effects on psychosocial wellbeing. Narrowband UVB phototherapy is a known effective treatment for chronic plaque psoriasis and previous studies suggest an ...
  • Thorman, Rachel Megan (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-10-27)
    Focused electron beam induced deposition (FEBID) is a nanofabrication technique wherein electron-induced reactions are used to deposit pure metals from organometallic precursors under the area of a primary electron beam. It can be used to directly ...
  • Kamble, Nilesh Ramesh (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-12-21)
    Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy is a well known technique that is routinely used to investigate the structure and dynamics of nucleic acids. EPR requires incorporation of paramagnetic centers at specific sites, called site-directed ...
  • Vlasov, Sergei (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-12)
    Nanomagnetic systems and transitions between magnetic states are currently an active topic of research. Spintronics is, in particular, a new branch of science and technology where spin degrees of freedom and spin currents are used in an analogous way ...
  • Khosa, Rabia Yasmin (2017)
    Silicon is a semiconductor material used in most power devices and the Si metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) is the key switching device for high power applications. Recently silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs have emerged on the ...
  • Liashko, Sergei Y. (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-11)
    Microscopic magnetic particles can be found in a wide range of systems, from asteroids in outer space and minerals in the Earth’s crust to living organisms on land and in the ocean. Often they determine critical functional properties of these systems ...
  • T P, Ragesh Kumar (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-12-15)
    Focused electron beam induced deposition (FEBID) is a direct-write 3D nanofabrication technique, which works on the principle of electron-induced molecular decomposition. In FEBID, a high-energy focused electron beam dissociates the precursor molecules ...
  • Eliasdottir, Thorunn (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Nursing, 2017-06)
    Purpose: Continuous peripheral pulse oximetry for monitoring adequacy of oxygenation is probably the most important technological advance for patients’ monitoring and safety in the last decades. Pulse oximetry has the disadvantage of measuring the ...
  • Tómasdóttir, Margrét Ólafía (NTNU Grafisk senter; University of Iceland, 2017-12-07)
    Bakgrunnur: Þegar sami einstaklingur þjáist af tveimur eða fleirum langvinnum sjúkdómum er það kallað fjölveikindi (e.multimorbidity). Á undanförnum árum hefur rannsóknum á fjölveikindum fleygt fram og algengi þeirra verið metið svo mikið að fjölveikindi ...
  • Götz, Markus (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2017-12-05)
    Á síðastliðnum áratug hefur orðið mikil aukning í framleiðslu og geymslu gagna í iðnaði sem og rannsóknum. Þrátt fyrir að gagnagreining sé ekki ný af nálinni, stendur hún frammi fyrir þeirri áskorun að ráða við síaukið magn, bandvídd og flækjustig ...
  • Pálsson, Frosti (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2017-09)
    In remote sensing, acquired optical images of high spectral resolution have usually a lower spatial resolution than images of lower spectral resolution. This is due to physical, cost and complexity constraints. To make the most of the available imagery, ...
  • Jonsdottir-Buch, Sandra Mjoll (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2017-09-15)
    Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) are promising candidates for cellular therapy due to their ability to regenerate bone and cartilage and modulate immune responses. The use of MSC in cellular therapy is problematic due to the need for fetal bovine serum ...
  • Shahnazaryan, Vanik (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-10)
    The physics of light-matter interactions is a rapidly developing interdisciplinary research area, combining methods and phenomena both from condensed matter physics and quantum optics. One of the most common realizations of strong coupling regime implies ...
  • Gísladóttir, Agnes (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2017-09)
    Background and aims: Sexual violence is common and, due to the possible impact on the exposed individual, a major public health concern according to the World Health Organization. However, knowledge from large and well conducted studies on the ...
  • Ingimarsdóttir, Inga Jóna (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2017-09-18)
    Blöðruhálskirtilskrabbamein er í dag algengasta krabbamein meðal karlmanna bæði á Íslandi og í Danmörku. Í byrjun 10. áratugar síðustu aldar kom fram á sjónarsviðið svokallað PSA-blóðpróf. PSA er stytting á heitinu prostate specific antigen en það er ...
  • Óladóttir, Hanna (Háskóli Íslands, Hugvísindasvið, Íslensku- og menningardeild, 2017-09-08)
    Í rannsókninni er sjónum beint að þeim hugmyndafræðilega grunni sem málfræðikennsla í grunnskólum á Íslandi, skólamálfræðin, byggist á til að leggja til umræðunnar um hvað eigi að kenna í málfræði og hvers vegna. Gengið er út frá að nemendur þurfi ...
  • Óskarsdóttir, Edda (Háskólaprent, 2017-08-31)
