This is EECS’ contribution to ForskarFredag
Friday, 30 September, is the time for ForskarFredag at Vetenskapens Hus. Representants from EECS will be competing in presentation technology, lectures in swallowable microsystems and presenting students' projects created in advanced graphics and electrical engineering.
Master thesis or internship in Programmable Matter
“Programmable matter intends to enable the instant creation of complex objects and their transfiguration on command. If such magical morphable matter were cheap and effective, it would allow us to send and download copies of objects as easily as we do digital documents. We could duplicate an object and then reshape it to our whims.” (spectrum.ieee.org/robotics/robotics-hardware/make-your-own-world-with-programmable-matter)
3D printing can now manufacture customized sensors for robots, pacemakers, and more
A newly-developed 3D printing technique could be used to cost-effectively produce customized electronic “machines” the size of insects which enable advanced applications in robotics, medical devices and others.
3D model of living brain cancer points to possible future for drug screening
As a potential alternative for drug testing without lab animals, researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology developed and successfully tested a 3D model of living brain cancer that surmounts one of the biggest challenges in tissue engineering.
Awarded Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to Erica Zeglio at Herland Lab
Here is the abstract.
- A Scalable Method for the large-area Integration of 2D Materials
- A Nature Physics publication: Three-dimensional fluid lattices
- Congratulations to Niclas Roxhed - appointed acting director of MedTech Labs
- Brush that loosens cells in cysts could become weapon against pancreatic cancer
The MST spin-off machine
Since the start of KTH Innovation in 2007, researchers, students and employees have founded 250 companies that are still active. Out of those, 11 are spin-offs from the division of Micro and Nanosystems. What is the secret behind this spin-off success?
Mininvasive Medical Technologies
Mininvasive Medical Technologies is on its mission to reduce the inconveniencies of blood sampling with painless microneedle technology
Scalable Production of Spider Silk Nanowires
Researchers from KTH have successfully up-scaled the process for producing and releasing spider silk nanowires. They used liquid bridge-induced assembly to create over 12 million of 10 μm long nanowires suspended in solution in about 20 minutes. The nanowires can easily be functionalized by both pre-and post-formation and are successfully used to support cell adhesion as well as integrated into 3D cell aggregates.
"A unique research environment"
The Electrum lab in Kista enables research in microelectromechanical systems, known as MEMS, to grow exponentially.
Intelligence at the edge (i-EDGE)
A consortium from industry and academia has been awarded €4.5M by the EU, UK and Switzerland to build a next-generation hardware platform for edge computing using nanomechanical relays.
- 3D printers for 2D material research outside the cleanroom
Earlier diagnosis of cancer with Lucky Loop
If you have a cyst, you want the doctor to be able to tell you how severe it is. But until now, this has been more complex than it sounds. The new start-up Lucky Loop will help diagnose pancreatic cancer earlier.
Reducing global misuse of antibiotics with digital dipsticks
Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health today, but we still overtreat many infections with antibiotics—urinary tract infections being one of the most common. A digital dipstick created by the KTH spin-off company UTI-lizer can diagnose infections on the spot to help decrease the threat.
