Is it possible to use CO2 as a valuable resource? In the coming years researchers are going to find answers to this question by contributing to knowledge production in the new basic research centre at Aarhus University, CADIAC (Foto: Colourbox)

New basic research centre with a focus on sustainable CO2

Department of Engineering is participating in the new basic research centre at Aarhus University with a focus on finding new ways to use CO2 as a valuable resource rather than a waste product.

The world’s growing need for microcomputers that are even smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient can possibly be met within a few years. Researchers are in full swing designing circuits with very large memory capacity and very low power consumption. The photo shows Assistant Professor Farshad Moradi. (Photo: Anders Trærup)
The traditional transistors in microprocessors are planar structures. The next generation of transistors has an advanced geometric pattern in three dimensions or more, and this provides considerably better control of the channel, less leakage current, low-voltage memory, and lower power consumption. As the illustration shows the scientists are designing new types of transistors where the gate is controlled from all sides.

New collaboration may lead to next generation computer chips

In a new international collaboration, engineers at Aarhus University will play a key role in designing integrated circuits using new transistors. These can be used in nanocomputers with super memory capacity and ultra-low power consumption.

It appears that researchers have discovered how to measure the sensation of taste in the brain at a preconscious level. This could be the key to identifying the perfect taste of sweetness without calories. Camilla Rotvel is pictured here in the laboratory. She is using 128 electrodes mounted on the scalp to record the electrical activity patterns between the neurons when we taste and recognise something sweet. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

EEG puts scientist right on track for the perfect taste of sweetness

In recent decades, the artificial sweetener industry has experienced a massive boom in global demand. However, it is difficult to produce a synthetic substance that only contains a few calories at the same time as authentic sweetness. Danish researchers are now using alternative methods to create the perfect sugar substitute.
