Heat dissipation in electronics and optoelectronics is a severe bottleneck in the further development of systems in these fields. To come to grips with this serious issue, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed an efficient way of cooling electronics by using functionalized graphene nanoflakes. The results are being published in the renowned journal, Nature...
A forest of waving hands greets associate professor Per Lundgren as he welcomes pupils from Fenestra School in Billdal. All week long, children have been pouring into MC2 – 100 in all – for its endlessly popular activity “Nanoscientist for a day”. The International Science Festival’s school programme has attracted 300 children to the institution.
Cecilia Mayer talked about beans and won over the audience. Her presentation won the Science Festival’s Science Slam competition on Friday. "This feels so great!" she says.
Plasmonic nanoantennas are among the hot topics in science at the moment because of their ability to interact strongly with light, which for example makes them useful for different kinds of sensing. But matching their resonances with atoms, molecules or so called quantum dots has been difficult so far because of the very different length scales involved. Thanks to a grant from the Engkvist...
