Microscopy method paves the way for new discoveries

“A groundbreaking microscopy technique that makes it possible to study biomolecules, nature’s smallest biological building blocks, in a new, more efficient way. This is presented by researchers from Chalmers and University of Gothenburg, using so-called nanochannels to study the …

New technology enables the detection of microplastics from road wear

“A new study shows that a form of optical tweezers can be used to detect small microplastics from tires and road wear, that previously has been too small to detect. The results can be used to develop more sustainable tires …

Magnetic storage that runs on light

“Researchers at the Department of Physics have carried out projects to make magnetic storage operate with light, making it more energy efficient, smaller, and about 10 000 times faster than what is currently available. Contact Alexander Friemann Dmitriev Professor +46 …

Quantum mechanics paves the way for more stable organic solar cells

“Quantum mechanics can be used to create more stable and more easily produced organic solar cells. These are the findings of new research from the University of Gothenburg. Organic solar cells have many advantages compared with traditional silicon-based solar cells …

New AI tool can revolutionise microscopy

“An AI tool developed at the University of Gothenburg offers new opportunities for analysing images taken with microscopes. A study shows that the tool, which has already received international recognition, can fundamentally change microscopy and pave the way for new …
