Earth-abundant materials based primarily on carbon, nitrogen and transition metal oxides can be combined into highly efficient energy conversion devices. These devices can be used in fuel cells as well as in electrolysis. This is shown experimentally by Tiva Sharifi, physicist at Umeå University, Sweden. She defends her thesis on 31 March.
Welcome to the Faculty of Science and Technology!
Our Faculty has 5 000 students, 300 doctoral students and a strong research. The departments of the faculty comprises research and education within chemistry, physics, computer science, mathematics, tehnology, teaching, architecture and industrial design.
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 des...
Light-emitting electrochemical cells, LEC, is a newly invented lighting technology. In his thesis, physicist Amir Asadpoordarvish, Umeå University, shows how a LEC can be produced through spraying three layers of ink on a substrate and emit light by the current from an ordinary battery. LEC componen...
On 2-3 June, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences will hold a symposium on the subject of aging together with Umeå University. Some important issues on future population levels as well as what happens in your brain and body with age will be raised. The event takes place in Aula Nordica at Umeå Univ...
