Success stories

Provides the researchers at the fronts of physics

Uniting exceptional performance r​equirements with mass production can sound like an impossibility. Nevertheless, Low Noise Factory has succeeded in making its extremely low-noise microwave amplifiers. Today, they are the first choice in both radio telescopes and quantum computers.​ Read more about Low Noise Factory​

Devices from Chalmers going to space

Using new technology to map signals in the brain

Sensors based on nanothreads that are superconducting in liquid nitrogen are offering new ways of measuring activity in the brain. In the future, the technique may revolutionize brain research and add to our knowledge of how stress affects us, for example. It will also simplify diagnosis of patients suffering from neurological diseases. Read more

Cooling graphene-based film close to pilot-scale production

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 Communications, on 29 April. Read more
