Lowering the cost for surface patterning plastics

Researchers at the Department of Micro- and Nanosystems at KTH have developed a new way to simultaneously shape and surface treat plastic components. The new method can reduce the manufacturing cost of medical devices, such ...

Robots come to each other's aid when they get the signal

Sometimes all it takes to get help from someone is to wave at them, or point. Now the same is true for robots. Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden have completed work on an EU project aimed at enabling ...

Truck turns its own heat into power

A 195-year-old discovery is behind a new system that will save vehicles hundreds of litres of fuel and reduce their carbon emissions by as much as 2 to 3 tonnes per year.

Material enables more reliable and meaningful self-screening

Paper-based diagnostics enable rapid medical test results at minimal cost—and now they're about to get even better. A new synthetic paper developed by Swedish researchers could enable simultaneous screenings for multiple ...

Breakthrough for lab-on-a-chip material

Researchers at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology have developed a new polymer suited for photostructuring, which opens new possibilities for medical diagnostics, biophotonics and 3D printing.
