Size matters when it comes to atomic properties

A study from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, has yielded new answers to fundamental questions about the relationship between the size of an atom and its other properties, such as electronegativity and energy. The ...

New microcomb could help discover exoplanets and detect diseases

Tiny photonic devices could be used to find new exoplanets, monitor health, and make the internet more energy efficient. Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, now present a game-changing microcomb that ...

Solving complex physics problems at lightning speed

A calculation so complex that it takes 20 years to complete on a powerful desktop computer can now be done in one hour on a regular laptop. Physicist Andreas Ekström at Chalmers University of Technology, together with international ...

Understanding how genetic motifs conduct 'the music of life'

Our genetic codes control not only which proteins our cells produce, but also—to a great extent—in what quantity. This groundbreaking discovery, applicable to all biological life, was recently made by systems biologists ...

Antibiotic resistance may spread even more easily than expected

Pathogenic bacteria in humans are developing resistance to antibiotics much faster than expected. Now, computational research at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, shows that one reason could be significant genetic ...

Tiny quantum computer solves real optimization problem

Quantum computers have already managed to surpass ordinary computers in solving certain tasks—unfortunately, totally useless ones. The next milestone is to get them to do useful things. Researchers at Chalmers University ...

Extracting precious zinc from waste ash

Incineration of solid waste produces millions of tons of waste fly ash in Europe annually; most ends up in landfill. But this ash often contains significant amounts of precious metals such as zinc. Researchers at Chalmers ...
