Unexpected result from acoustics experiment could have applications in biomedical and microsystems research
Anton Paar Research Award to Robin Ras and Quan Zhou
The biomedical engineering area mainly encompasses medical devices.
The microscope is 1000 times more precise than current techniques, allowing the creation of wetting maps as a new concept for hydrophobic surface characterization.
Aalto University's newly tenured professors reveal the secrets of miniature robotics and optimizing human-computer interaction, among other things.
Professor of microrobotics Quan Zhou operates invisible things that have a big impact.
By playing carefully constructed melodies, the scientists can simultaneously move multiple objects on the plate towards desired targets.
Each programme to receive funding of 150 000 € over three years.
Doctoral student Anastasiia Kravtcova: “Doctoral studies can be a combination of a job, hobby and lifestyle”
The chance of making a societal impact motivated Anastasiia Kravtcova to pursue her doctoral studies and to dive into a groundbreaking topic in medical engineering at the School of Electrical Engineering.
