A KTH researcher is part of an international team that has unlocked the secret to creating stable dynamic skyrmions – the nanoscale magnetic whirls that promise to meet our insatiable appetite for data storage.
Reidar Gårdebäck has found his place at the Center of Technology in Medicine and Health (CTMH) at KTH and his new role as Programme Director of MedTech4Health. Vinnovas big venture in medical engineering shall put Sweden on the map and contribute to innovations and the introduction of new technologies.
There might not be an astronaut wedding this year, but the annual Association of Space Explorers XXVIII Planetary Congress at KTH Royal Institute of Technology will nevertheless be something truly unique.
Inside a small suite of offices at the department of Plasma Physics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, researchers are picking up where space exploration leaves off. The object of their work is to understand the fundamental plasma-physics process that connects and disconnects magnetic fields in space.
In the research project, Working on Venus, KTH researchers are developing electronics for a space mission to collect data from the second planet from the sun. The electronics are based on silicon carbide, a semiconducting material that can withstand the Venus' extremely harsh climate, where surface temperatures are as hot as 460 degrees Celsius.
Young people see a factory as a dangerous workplace, a source of pollution and all sorts of problems. Lihui Wang, professor of Production Engineering and Chair of Sustainable Manufacturing, wants to change that.
Throughout the ages, Sweden has relied on its vast forests as a source of sustenance and economic growth. Now add the world’s first magnetic cellulose membrane loudspeakers to the list of products that can be produced from wood.
A one-size-fits-all approach to medicine is costly for the public health system and dangerous for patients. Research at KTH is looking for a way to individualise medication for better, healthier results.
Solar panels are not the only way to capture clean energy from the sun. Glass roofs that draw on technology developed at KTH have emerged as an aesthetically pleasing way to self-generate household heat.
