Alma antennas under the Milky Way

Apr 16, 2015 19:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology The giant telescope Alma, made up of 66 individual antennas and located at 5000 altitude in northern Chile, has revealed the intense magnetic field close to a supermassive black hole. In this image, taken during the ESO Ultra HD (UHD) Expedition, the central parts of our galaxy the Milky Way can be seen above the telescope.

A supermassive black hole and its intense magnetic field (artist's impression)

Apr 16, 2015 19:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology This artist’s impression shows the surroundings of a supermassive black hole, typical of that found at the heart of many galaxies. The black hole itself is surrounded by a brilliant accretion disc of very hot, infalling material and, further out, a dusty torus. There are also often high-speed jets of material ejected at the black hole’s poles that can extend huge distances into space.

Spin transport in CVD graphene

Apr 10, 2015 10:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology In graphene, electrons keep their magnetization, their spin (the pink arrows in the picture) much longer than they do in ordinary conductors such as copper and aluminum. This characteristic of graphene may enable spintronics to become a complement to traditional electronics, which only utilizes one of the electron´s degrees of freedom, namely their charge.

An optical microscope image of a spintronics device on CVD graphene

Apr 10, 2015 10:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology An optical microscope image of a spintronics device fabricated on CVD graphene, with long channels (up to 16 micrometer) on Si/SiO2 substrate with multiple ferromagnetic contacts (Co/TiO2) for spin injection and detection. The devices were fabricated at the Nano fabrication laboratory at Chalmers University of Technology.

Energy intake and greenhouse gas emissions for different food types

Apr 01, 2015 07:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology Energy intake and greenhouse gas emissions for different food types, and aggregate effects for different diets. The “current diet” refers to the average for Sweden. Smallest climate impacts are caused by the vegan diet, which consists entirely of non-livestock food. However, the major gain comes from reduced consumption of ruminants (beef and dairy). (CO2-e = carbon dioxide equivalents)
