Graphene supercurrents go ballistic

27 July 2015

Scientists at TU Delft and Leiden University have observed supercurrents in graphene that bounce back and forth between the edges of the graphene without scattering along the way. Supercurrents are electrical currents that flow even when there is no voltage applied. They can be induced in graphene by bringing it in contact with a superconducting material. The ability to create such ballistic...Continue


Important milestone towards understanding DNA replication

24 July 2015

Researchers of TU Delft have shed light on the manner in which the process of DNA replication is stopped in the E. coli bacterium. The research is an important milestone towards understanding DNA replication in general, and how the unavoidable errors made during this process are corrected.Continue


Art on TU Delft campus: ode to the engineer

Medical equipment doesn't 'match' in humanitarian aid situations

10 July 2015

The transfer and use of 'normal' complex medical equipment to and in disaster areas lead to many problems. Industrial design engineers are ideally situated to tackle this mismatch, says Ana Laura Santos. She will defend her PhD-thesis on this subject at the TU Delft on Friday July 10th.Continue

“Advance, by Jupiter!” Together bacteria invade antibiotic landscapes

07 July 2015

Antibiotics kill bacteria – or at least they are supposed to, although unfortunately this does not always result in a cure. Scientists at TU Delft's Kavli Institute of Nanoscience have discovered that bacteria can colonise environments in which there are deadly quantities of antibiotics, without becoming genetically resistant. In order to achieve this, the bacteria need to work together in large...Continue

Relaxing in the rear seat on holiday: play a game using your back

06 July 2015

Car passenger comfort can be increased through the use of ‘active seating’: playing a game using sensors in the back rest of the rear seat that respond to upper body movements. Test subjects feel fitter after using the active seating. This is one of the conclusions of industrial design engineer Suzanne Hiemstra-van Mastrigt, who will be awarded her PhD on the subject of comfortable passenger...Continue
