Designing microwave devices from scratch using computer simulations

Designing microwave devices from scratch using computer simulations

For decades, the fundamental design of microwave devices, such as antennas for mobile communication and waveguides used in radars, has essentially 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 of Emadeldeen Hassan, which he defends at Umeå University, 26 May.

“Invisible” protein structure explains the power of enzymes

2015-07-03
A research group at Umeå University has managed to capture and describe a protein structure that, until now, has been impossible to study. The discovery lays the base for developing designed enzymes as catalysts to new chemical reactions for instance in biotechnological applications. The result of t...

Restored streams take 25 years or longer to recover

2015-06-30
New research has found that the number of plant species growing just next to restored streams can take up to 25 years to increase above those channelized during the timber floating era. This is according to doctoral student, Eliza Maher Hasselquist, and other researchers from Umeå University and the...

Sliperiet at Umeå University is starting a project: 3D printing houses

2015-06-26
In a collaborative project worth SEK 35 million, researchers and external partners are together developing a technology to make full-scale 3D prints of cellulose based material. It is not a matter of small prints – the objective is to make houses.
