For decades, the design of microwave devices, like antennas for mobile communication and waveguides used in radars, has relied on the inventiveness of a professional designer. Computer simulations are usually used only in final design stages to fine-tune details in the design. This classical approach to microwave device design is challenged in the PhD thesis by Emadeldeen Hassan, Umeå University

Light-emitting electrochemical cells, LEC, is a newly invented lighting technology. In his thesis, physicist Amir Asadpoordarvish, Umeå University, shows how a LEC can be produced through spraying three layers of ink on a substrate and emit light by the current from an ordinary battery. LEC components can be sprayed onto complicated surfaces, for example to make a light-emitting fork.
