New research centre to help solve the climate crisis

A new, unique research centre has been launched. The Novo Nordisk Foundation CO2 Research Center is to be established with a grant of DKK 630 million from the Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF) and based at Aarhus University. The new centre will ensure cross-disciplinary collaboration to reduce the amount of the greenhouse gas, CO2, in the atmosphere…

"If we succeed, we’ll have the first BIC system that is no larger than a grain of dust and with energy consumption that is so small that energy can be harvested directly from the surrounding environment," says Hooman Farkhani, an assistant professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University.

Work commences to develop the world's smallest brain-inspired computer

The energy consumption of the device will be so small that it can harvest its energy itself, directly from its surroundings. The project has received funding from the Villum Experiment programme.

The Villum Experiment programme has sought out ready-to-fly ideas that can change our perception of the world. (Ill: Colourbox).

DKK 5.9 million for daring research ideas

The VILLUM FOUNDATION recently announced the recipients of this year's Villum Experiment grants, and researchers at the Faculty of Technical Sciences have received total grants of almost DKK 6 million.

"If it turns out that we can actually measure skyrmions with terahertz light, it will be ground-breaking for all computer technology in the future. We’ve set ourselves a huge challenge here, but the goal is really worth it," says Assistant Professor Pernille Klarskov Pedersen, Aarhus University. Photo: AU Foto.

AU researchers to build skyrmion sensor with terahertz technology

A new research project at Aarhus University could be the determining factor for the computer technology of the future. The project aims to develop a sensor that can read so-called skyrmions. These are extremely small magnetic 'tornadoes', which may well be a vital storage medium in the future.
