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.
Maybe soon we can say goodbye to polystyrene, the petroleum-based material that is used to make Styrofoam. In what looks like an ordinary bicycle helmet, Swedish designers have replaced Styrofoam with a new shock-absorbing material made with renewable and biodegradable wood-based material.
Imagine there was a drug for cancer treatment with almost zero side effects. And you wouldn´t have to take your medicine every fourth hour but every third week. We're closer to developing this kind of treatment than you might think.
Imagine being able to enjoy a Christmas dinner and, at the same time, make a difference for the environment. Today you can buy caviar and crisp bread made from seaweed, and that's only the beginning for algae-based foods. Seafarm is a project that could help put Sweden in the forefront of seaweed farming worldwide.
There's no silver bullet to stop global warming. Getting climate change under control will require an array of energy systems and solutions. As COP21 wraps up, we take a look at some of the most interesting recent research at KTH that addresses global warming.
Climate change is linked to at least six of the UN's 17 goals for sustainable development. Making these goals a reality requires commitment at all levels — both at COP21 in Paris, and in our own daily lives, says KTH Professor Måns Nilsson.
It gets pretty dark in Stockholm during late November, but this week the campus is focused on light. The Festival of Light at the KTH Dome of Visions is being held November 23-28 in conjunction with the UN’s International Year of Light.
Given her great passion for physics and chemistry, PhD student Sedigheh Bigdeli left Iran to study at KTH and do research on thermodynamic modelling. Since 2013, she has been involved in creating new databases to improve industrial materials at the Hierarchic Engineering of Industrial Materials (Hero-m) centre.
Chalk up another reason why your gut bacteria are so critical to your health—and why these microorganisms could be the key to staying healthy. A new study reveals that human intestinal flora regulate the levels of the body's main antioxidant, glutathione, which fights a host of diseases.
Sweden is on track to becoming the world's first cashless society, thanks to the country's embrace of IT, as well as a crackdown on organized crime and terror, according to a study from Stockholm's KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
