10 Feb 2017 - Detlef Lohse Member National Academy of Engineering
Detlef Lohse, Professor of Physics of Fluids at the University of Twente, has been elected Member of the National Academy of Engineering in the USA.
2 Feb 2017 - Researchers transmit 10 bit of information with a single photon
Researchers at the University of Twente’s MESA+ research institute have managed to transmit more than 10 bit of information with a single photon. They achieved this using an ingenious method for detecting individual photons. The knowledge gained from this study can be used to improve the security and speed of quantum communication.
10 Jan 2017 - UT developing portable device for early diabetes detection
Researchers at the University of Twente, in cooperation with commercial parties, are developing a portable device for detecting type 1 or type 2 diabetes at an early stage. The STW Technology Foundation is funding a research proposal submitted by Sonia García Blanco of UT’s MESA+ institute. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop a prototype of the device.
6 Dec 2016 - University of Twente researchers able to study individual defects in transistors
Scientists from the University of Twente’s MESA+ research institute have developed a method for studying individual defects in transistors. All computer chips, which are each made up of huge numbers of transistors, contain millions of minor ‘flaws’.
5 Dec 2016 - Perfect crystals from 'flying' drops
Crystals that don’t experience mechanical stress during growth, will be of superior quality. Levitate the liquid metal, is the idea behind the new project ‘Perfecting metal crystals’, led by the University of Twente.
16 Nov 2016 - UT in five out of six 'Perspectief' projects
Cartilage repair, energy efficient Internet of Things, new ways of controlling light, better flood protection and a brain prosthesis that can give sight to the blind.
9 Nov 2016 - New nanosensors for the detection of TNT
A new type of sensor has the potential to replace sniffer dogs when it comes to detecting explosives such as TNT. This week, researchers from a number of institutions including TU Delft and the University of Twente are publishing an article about this subject in the American Chemical Society's journal Nano Letters.
