  • Material enables more reliable and meaningful self-screening

    Published Feb 25, 2016
    Paper-based diagnostics enable rapid medical test results at minimal cost — and now they're about to get even better. A new synthetic paper developed by KTH researchers could enable simultaneous screenings for multiple conditions, with more reliable results.

  • Breakthrough for lab-on-a-chip material

    Published Feb 24, 2016
    Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology have developed a new polymer suited for photostructuring — a technique for creating micro-scale shapes. The discovery opens new possibilities for medical diagnostics, biophotonics and 3D printing.

  • MPC allows heavy-duty vehicles to drive by themselves

    Published Feb 11, 2016
    Autonomous vehicles have become a popular research field in the last decade. Mostly, the research is conducted with private cars or other small vehicles in mind. But where does that leave the industry with their larger vehicles such as trucks? Pedro Lima, a PhD-student at the Department of Automatic Control, has designed and implemented a Model Predictive Control (MPC) for trucks that will allow them to drive safely and accurately on their own.

  • Method for tiny cracks in electrodes may mean big boost for nanoelectronics

    Published Feb 03, 2016
    The next generation of electronics, as well as ultra-sensitive medical diagnostics, could depend on near atomic scale cracks — or nanogaps — in electrodes. Now there's a method that could pave the way for mass production of nanogap electrodes.
