Advanced technology close to health care
Anders Persson, professor of medical imaging, is in charge of a project focussed on using advanced visualisation to benefit health care. LiU researchers are world leaders in showing how the heart functions, which can make it easier to diagnose heart disease.
Interaction saves energy
Researchers at the Department of Electrical Engineering are developing the intelligent home and the intelligent car – and the interaction between the two. By optimising various control systems, it’s possible to save energy.
Atomic artistry yields new materials
Jens Birch, professor, and Johanna Rosén, assistant professor, design new magnetic materials, for instance for use in computers. Plus other materials aimed at increasing the information volume in optical fibre.
Plastic chip in body can relieve chronic pain
Magnus Berggren, professor of organic electronics, and Klas Tybrandt, postdoctoral student at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics, were the first in the world to develop chemical chips that enable us to control the signals of cells.
History lives with us
Martin Kylhammar is professor at Tema Q: Culture and Society. In his research he looks to Swedish authors, from Strindberg onward, in order to understand the timeless way in which we manage modernity and the changes it brings.
