Researchers uncover a new aspect of charge density modulations in high temperature superconductors

Press releases   •   Sep 09, 2019 07:00 BST

Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology and Politecnico di Milano have identified a crucial new aspect of charge density modulations in cuprate high critical temperature superconductors. They have identified a new electron wave which could help reveal some of the mysteries about superconducting materials. The findings are published in the journal Science.

Soon, air pollution could be measured on every street corner

Soon, air pollution could be measured on every street corner

Press releases   •   Jun 13, 2019 07:00 BST

Air pollution is responsible for 550,000 premature deaths a year in Europe – and 7 million worldwide, according to the WHO. Measuring it can be a challenge, however, as the equipment tends to be large and expensive. But soon, this may change, thanks to a small, optical nano-sensor developed at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, which can be mounted onto an ordinary streetlight.

Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Press releases   •   Jun 11, 2019 07:05 BST

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have discovered a new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box of stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop where light and matter become one. The discovery, published in Nature Nanotechnology, creates new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.
