Wetenschappelijke artikelen

De Universitaire Stichting kan subsidies verlenen om het publiceren te bevorderen van wetenschappelijke artikelen in internationaal gereviewde tijdschriften.

OPGELET:   De aanvragen voor het subsidiëren van de kosten voor het publiceren van wetenschappelijke artikelen dienen te worden ingediend door middel van een "online" systeem. Dit systeem zal zowel voor de aanvragers als voor de administratie van de Universitaire Stichting het werk vergemakkelijken. 

Klik deze link naar het indiensysteem, waar het reglement, een beschrijving van de te volgen procedure en de online indienformulieren beschikbaar zijn. 

Opmerkingen over het online systeem, correcties en gewenste aanpassingen zijn welkom. Gelieve deze te zenden aan fu.us@universityfoundation.be.

Wetenschappelijke artikelen gesubsidieerd door de Universitaire Stichting

Wat volgt is een lijst van wetenschappelijke artikelen die recent gesubsidieerd werden door de Universitaire Stichting. De artikelen zijn gesorteerd op jaar van uitgave en per titel.

VAN GOETHEM D, DE SMEDT S, VALCKE R, POTTERS G, SAMSON R (2013) Seasonal, Diurnal and Vertical Variation of Chlorophyll Fluorescence on Phyllostachys humilis in IrelandPLoS ONE 8(8): e72145.  Correction: PLoS ONE 8(11): 10.1371.


In recent years, temperate bamboo species have been introduced in Europe not only as an ornamental plant, but also as a new biomass crop. To measure adaptation stress of bamboo to the climate of Western Europe, chlorophyll fluorescence was measured on a diurnal and seasonal basis in Ballyboughal, Co. Dublin, Ireland. Measurements were attained on the leaves of each node of Phyllostachys humilis. The most frequently used parameter in chlorophyll fluorescence is the photosynthetic efficiency (Fv/Fm).

JUSSERET S., LANGOHR C., SINTUBIN M. (2013). Tracking earthquake archaeological evidence in Late Minoan IIIB (~1300-1200 B.C.) Crete (Greece): A proof of concept. Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, 103, 3026-3043.

Late Minoan (LM) IIIB (∼1300–1200 B.C.) represents a crucial period in the history of Bronze Age Crete, heralding the transition to the Iron Age through a wave of site destruction and abandonment. According to the traditional view, earthquakes may have played a significant role in these events. A new archaeoseismological approach is proposed to test this hypothesis and to attribute destruction and abandonment to earthquakes. Potential earthquake archaeological effects (PEAEs) are defined and documented at LM IIIB sites.

NOIROT, I. C., BRITTAN-POWELL, E. F., & DOOLING, R. J. (2011). Masked auditory thresholds in three species of birds, as measured by the auditory brainstem response (L). Acoustical Society of America, 129, 6, 3445-3448. 

Auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) were recorded in adult budgerigars, canaries, and zebra finches in quiet and in three levels of white noise for tone stimuli between 1 and 4 kHz. Similar to behavioral results, masked ABR thresholds increased linearly with increasing noise levels. When the three species are considered together, ABR-derived CRs were higher than behavioral CRs by 18–23 dB between 2 and 4 kHz and by about 30 dB at 1 kHz.

Felten, A.; Suarez-Martinez, I.; Ke, X.; Van Tendeloo, G.; Ghijsen, J.; Pireaux, J-J.; Drube, W.; Bittencourt, C.; Ewels, C.

FELTEN, A., SUAREZ-MARTINEZ, I., KE, X., VAN TENDELOO, G., GHIJSEN, J., PIREAUX, J-J., DRUBE, W., BITTENCOURT, C., & EWELS, C. (2009). The role of oxygen at the interface between titanium and carbon nanotubes. Chemphyschem : A European Journal of Chemical Physics and Physical Chemistryvol 10, issue 11, 1799-1804.

We study the interface between carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and surface-deposited titanium using electron microscopy and photoemission spectroscopy, supported by density functional calculations. Charge transfer from the Ti atoms to the nanotube and carbide formation is observed at the interface which indicates strong interaction. Nevertheless, the presence of oxygen between the Ti and the CNTs significantly weakens the Ti–CNT interaction. Ti atoms at the surface will preferentially bond to oxygenated sites.
