Bacteria could become a future source of electricity

28-Mar-2019

In recent years, researchers have tried to capture the electrical current that bacteria generate through their own metabolism. So far, however, the transfer of the current from the bacteria to a receiving electrode has not been efficient at all. Now, researchers from institutions including Lund ...

Method aims to predict allergenic potency of chemicals

31-May-2017

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have developed a method which determines not only whether a chemical or substance is allergenic, but also how strong its potential for causing hypersensitivity is. This will aid in the establishment of so-called threshold values - or how much of a ...

Modern alchemy creates luminescent iron molecules

03-Apr-2017

A group of researchers at Lund University in Sweden have made the first iron-based molecule capable of emitting light. This could contribute to the development of affordable and environmentally friendly materials for e.g. solar cells, light sources and displays. For over 50 years, chemists have ...

Electrons used to control ultrashort laser pulses

22-Mar-2017

We may soon get better insight into the microcosm and the world of electrons. Researchers at Lund University and Louisiana State University have developed a tool that makes it possible to control extreme UV light - light with much shorter wavelengths than visible light. The new method uses strong ...

Research shows how nanowires can be formed

21-Mar-2016

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden show how different arrangements of atoms can be combined into nanowires as they grow. Researchers learning to control the properties of materials this way can lead the way to more efficient electronic devices. Nanowires are believed to be important ...

Scientific breakthrough can lead to cheaper and environmentally friendly solar cells

15-Oct-2015

The hope is to develop efficient and environmentally friendly solar energy applications. Solar energy is an inexhaustible resource that we currently only utilise to a very limited extent. Researchers around the world are therefore trying to find new and more efficient ways to use the energy in ...

Volcanic eruptions slow down climate change

15-Jul-2015

Although global concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has continuously increased over the past decade, the mean global surface temperature has not followed the same path. A team of international reseachers, KIT scientists among them, have now found an explanation for this slowing ...

Researchers trap moths with plant-produced sex pheromone

03-Mar-2014

A collaborative experiment involving a Kansas State University biochemist may mark the beginning of an effective, environmentally friendly plant-based method of insect control. Timothy Durrett, assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics, was part of the collaboration that used ...

Researchers successfully develop animal free methods for testing chemical compounds for allergens

EU-funded research project developing in vitro test strategies to reduce or replace animal testing use gene expression analysis software

09-Apr-2013

As of march 2013 there is a ban in the European Union (EU) on animal testing of ingredients for cosmetics. The ban applies to all new cosmetics and their ingredients sold in the EU, regardless of where in the world testing on animals was carried out. The 27 EU countries have had a ban on such ...
