The International Lofar Telescope

Jan 29, 2015 08:00 GMT Chalmers University of Technology The International Lofar Telescope has its core in the Netherlands and stations in Sweden, France, the UK and Germany. Three new stations are being built in Poland.

The centre of the galaxy M 82

Jan 29, 2015 08:00 GMT Chalmers University of Technology The centre of the galaxy M 82 at very long radio wavelengths (2.5 m/118 MHz [orange] and 1.9 m/154 MHz [blue]). The bright points are most likely supernova remnants. The image is about 3300 light years across.

The Swedish station in the radio telescope Lofar

A high-voltage cable cross-section

Jan 27, 2015 08:00 GMT Chalmers University of Technology A high-voltage cable cross-section. The electrically conductive core is covered by a black protective layer, a white insulation layer of plastic and an additional black protective layer.

An electrical tree, which is a major electrical breakdown mechanism of insulation plastic

Jan 27, 2015 08:00 GMT Chalmers University of Technology An electrical tree, which is a major electrical breakdown mechanism of insulation plastic. Fullerenes prevent electrical trees from forming by capturing electrons that would otherwise destroy chemical bonds in the plastic.

Wind turbines at sea

Jan 27, 2015 08:00 GMT Chalmers University of Technology Renewable energy sources are often found far away from the end user. Wind turbines, for example, are most effective when placed out at sea.

The C60 carbon ball

Jan 27, 2015 08:00 GMT Chalmers University of Technology The C60 carbon ball consists of 60 carbon atoms that are placed so that the molecule resembles a nanometer-sized football.

An analysis of major gene ontology terms of each tissue

Jan 23, 2015 09:32 GMT Chalmers University of Technology An analysis of major gene ontology terms of each tissue on the basis of the tissue-elevated genes in 13 selected tissues or groups of tissues.

The protein EGFR in a human cell line

Jan 23, 2015 09:19 GMT Chalmers University of Technology The protein EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) is visualized using confocal microscopy and immunofluorescent reporters in a human cell line (A-431). EGFR is localized to the plasma membrane (green). The cytoskeleton and microtubules are shown in red and the nucleus in blue.
