  • Nobel Laureate in Physics to speak at the University of Gothenburg 8 December

    [29 Nov 2017] Join Nobel Laureate David J. Gross as he takes you to the frontier of fundamental physics among string theories, atomic nuclei and elemental particles.

  • Sea sparkle Is a Defence against Enemies

    [6 Nov 2017] Sea sparkle, the phenomenon of seawater glowing brilliantly at night in breaking waves or when splashing in the water, has always fascinated people. A new study from the University of Gothenburg sheds light on what controls its intensity.

  • New Windows Heat Buildings Instead of Wasting Energy

    [26 Oct 2017] Windows let light into the buildings we live and work in, and they also have an important aesthetic function. Their downside, however, is that in colder climates, they cause buildings to lose large amounts of heat and therefore have a detrimental effect on energy consumption. Researchers have now found a solution to the problem.

  • What is the right search strategy in a complex environment?

    [20 Oct 2017] Employing the right search strategy is crucial in many situations. However, until now the proposed search strategies have not taken into account the fact that most environments contain obstacles and barriers of different kinds. This is now addressed in a new study published in the scientific journal PNA

  • Researchers: Global wind speeds slowing since 1960

    [6 Oct 2017] Wind speeds around the world are decreasing in a phenomenon known as "stilling" and scientists are hoping to find out why. "Weaker winds can mean less dispersion of pollutants in big cities, exacerbating air quality problems and therefore impacting human health", says Cesar Azorin-Molina, researcher at the Department of Earth Sciences, in an interview with the Horizon magazine.

  • Marine Species Threatened by Deep-Sea Mining

    [3 Oct 2017] Underwater mining poses a great danger to animals inhabiting the seafloors. A new research study describes the most abundant species, a sponge, which can now be used to regulate mining operations and help us better understand their environmental impacts.

  • Plants Become More Tolerant When Living in Symbiosis with Fungi

    [28 Sep 2017] By developing a symbiotic relationship with fungi, plants not only become more tolerant to diseases but can also help contribute to more sustainable agricultural practices. This is the conclusion of a new study from the University of Gothenburg.

  • Lars Bengtsson appointed the title Excellent Teacher

    [20 Sep 2017] Lars Bengtsson at the Department of Physics has more than 25 years of teaching experience, and has now been awarded the title Excellent Teacher. His subject areas are electronics, electronic measurement systems and embedded systems.

  • Afshin Houshang awarded the Faculty of Science's Doctoral Thesis Award 2017

    [20 Sep 2017] The Faculty of Science doctoral thesis award in 2017 goes to Afshin Houshang from the Department of Physics. Afshin Houshang research focuses on how to manipulate, control and transfer electrons called spins. Congratulations!

  • Female Fish Like Males Who Sing

    [18 Sep 2017] Noisier seas seem to hamper fish reproduction. A new doctoral thesis from the University of Gothenburg shows that noise pollution impedes reproduction in sand and common gobies, both of which are important food sources for juvenile cod.
