Visors in different sizes
Researchers at KTH suggest a new post-processing method for visors, enabled by closed-loop controlled 4D printing that further can shape the printed visor to any size.

Adjustable visors with 4D printing method

3D printed protective visors are often uncomfortable for the user. With a new printing method – closed loop controlled 4D printing – the visors can be shaped to any customized size to make them more c...

A coin, a corona virus and a detail of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and inorganic surfaces.
Quantum mechanical modeling predicts strong interactions between glucosides of the tip of the S1 subunit of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and inorganic surfaces. These interactions depend largely on the type of surface and on the presence of surface bound water.

Unexpected bonds between covid and inorganic surfaces

By using quantum mechanical modeling KTH has revealed how the covid virus interacts with inorganic surfaces. And the virus reacts a little bit different than expected.
