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.
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.
