Cost-efficiency of plug-in hybrids calculated a thousand times faster

Apr 21, 2015 07:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology Plug-in hybrids have low fuel consumption, but require more costly parts than cars with a regular combustion engine. During development, the optimal cost balance must be calculated, which has been extremely time consuming to date. Now researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a new method that dramatically reduces the time needed for these calculations.

Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole’s intense magnetic field

Apr 16, 2015 19:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy. The results appear in the 17 April 2015 issue of the journal Science.

Graphene looking promising for future spintronic devices

Apr 10, 2015 10:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have discovered that large area graphene is able to preserve electron spin over an extended period, and communicate it over greater distances than had previously been known. This has opened the door for the development of spintronics. The findings have been published in the journal Nature Communications.
