Engineering of a Swedish quantum computer set to start

Engineering of a Swedish quantum computer set to start

Press Releases   •   Nov 15, 2017 07:40 GMT

A SEK 1 billion research initiative is setting Sweden on course to a global top position in quantum technology. The focus is on developing a quantum computer with much greater computing power than today's best supercomputers. The initiative, led by Chalmers University of Technology, has been made possible by an anniversary donation of SEK 600 million from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

Alma’s image of red giant star gives a surprising glimpse of the Sun’s future

Press Releases   •   Nov 07, 2017 07:00 GMT

A Chalmers-led team of astronomers has for the first time observed details on the surface of an aging star with the same mass as the Sun. Alma:s images show that the star is a giant, its diameter twice the size of Earth’s orbit around the Sun, but also that the star’s atmosphere is affected by powerful, unexpected shock waves. The research was published in Nature Astronomy on 30 October 2017.

Press Releases   •   Oct 31, 2017 07:00 GMT

A flexible detector for terahertz frequencies (1000 gigahertz) has been developed by Chalmers researchers using graphene transistors on plastic substrates. It is the first of its kind, and can extend the use of terahertz technology to applications that will require flexible electronics, such as wireless sensor networks and wearable technology.

Quieter cities of the future, Lessening the severe health effects of traffic noise in cities by emission reductions

Traffic noise is the second biggest environmental problem in the EU, according to WHO. After air pollution, noise is affecting health the most. But legislation regarding noise pollution is insufficient. A new report shows how negative health effects of noise can be reduced. Several means are easiest to apply in dense cities.
