Devices from Chalmers going to space
Schottky diodes fabricated at the Nanofabrication Laboratory at the
Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience – MC2 – are becoming
important components of the second generation weather satellite space
project MetOp. The diodes were delivered to Omnisys Instruments this
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
Sights set on record-breaking transmission speed
Work is at fever pitch at the Microwave Electronics Laboratory at MC2.
Their goal? To find solutions for high-speed wireless communication.
“We’re aiming for record speed in the field,” says Professor Herbert
Zirath, head of the research team. Read more
Vad gör du när din teknik börjar bli gammal och konkurrenterna flåsar dig i nacken? På det anrika mikrovågsföretaget Sivers IMA i Kista letade man upp ett nytt produktområde som passade den unika kompetensen. Valet föll på konvertrar för millimetervågsområdet. Läs mer

Paving the way for fast low-energy data communications
Fibre-optic cables are revolutionising data communication worldwide.
Within three years, Chalmers researchers expect to be able to transfer
100 Gb of data per second in a single fibre with one core, and several
terabits per second in a cable with multiple fibres and cores.
