Norwegian researchers are developing electronics that disappear to order.
May-Britt and Edvard I. Moser have won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine 2014. This is part of their work.
The last week of January 2012 brought wild weather to the Norwegian arctic island archipelago of Svalbard and its largest town, Longyearbyen. A new cross-disciplinary study provides a comprehensive look at the effects of this extreme weather event on everything from town infrastructure to the natural environment.
Women who experience abuse from someone they know have an 80 per cent higher chance of developing postpartum depression as women who have never been abused.
Carlos Alberto Dorao is trying to nail down the mechanisms that will help make processes used in the oil and gas industry more effective. His work may also contribute to making computer processors more powerful.
DNA profiles of the sea eagle population from a large island in mid-Norway are providing new and useful information as to how the birds avoid being killed by wind turbines.
Robots equipped with machine vision enable us to classify catches on board vessels with high levels of accuracy – saving fishing crews time and money.
The robots of the future must be able to adapt to changes in their surroundings. Some of them will be in close contact with people. At the very least they must be able to see properly – in three dimensions, just like us.
Women who have complications during pregnancy are at a much higher risk for cardiovascular disease. Now, information from 30 000 women will make a huge contribution to preventing disease and saving lives.
It’s been this way for 127 years— the V-shaped wake pattern behind a ship moving in a straight line always has the same central angle. But a Norwegian armed with a pen and a piece of paper has discovered that in certain situations, a boat’s wake can actually be found in front of the boat.
NTNU researchers have made a discovery that can be key to the development of faster computers that use less energy.
Using devices that look like old-fashioned TV antennae, physicists at NTNU are improving weather forecasts by studying shooting stars in the upper atmosphere.
A Norwegian invention is reducing by a third the energy that foundries need to manufacture ship propeller blades.
Six norwegian office buildings were erected outside of Oslo around 1980. Two of these have now been rehabilitated and represent northern Europe’s first zero-emission buildings of their type.
A new method of producing solar cells could reduce the amount of silicon per unit area by 90 per cent compared to the current standard. With the high prices of pure silicon, this will help cut the cost of solar power.
