PRESSMEDDELANDE

Nytt ljus gav Nobelpris i fysik och kemi

Fotonens århundrade

Årets Nobelpris i fysik har tilldelats de tre japanska forskarna, Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano och Shuji Nakamura,

”för uppfinningen av effektiva blå lysdioder vilka möjliggjort ljusstarka och energisnåla vita ljuskällor”.

OASIS EU project

The European project OASIS aims to improve the links between life science facilities and small and medium size entreprises (SMEs). Previous large investments in these facilities will be more accessible to SMEs, which will enhance their competitive advantage in new products development and validation in the field of biophotonics.OASIS is an EU project of the category Coordination and Support Action (CSA). It involved 9 Photonics Clusters (2 national platforms and 7 regional clusters) from 7 countries.

Swedish government invests in smart electronics and photonics systems

To say it in a nutshell: electronic and photonic components and systems can be found everywhere today, from a pedometer to a hydroelectric power station, and it grows in importance from an economic perspective.  Swedish electronics and photonics components and systems are important as export products and as well as enablers for industrial growth and a sustainable development of society. Energy sufficiency, wireless communication, advanced measurement instruments and energy saving production are just a few examples.
