Using advanced signal treatment, researchers can now divide a room into sound zones that do not disturb each other. In the coming three years, they will collaborate with the Chinese acoustic company GoerTek Inc. They will develop the technology so it can be commercialised and thereby moved out of the laboratory and into our living rooms.

Sound zones on the way to the living room

Aarhus University has entered into a collaborative agreement with one of the world’s major manufacturers of speakers. The aim is to fully develop a new technology that can make it possible to divide our homes into sound zones.

Queues for 3D printers at Aarhus University will soon be a thing of the past. Sixty-five researchers and students are in full swing building fifty new machines with a total value of at least DKK 1 million. (Photo: Anders Trærup)
During the course of three Friday afternoons and evenings, the researchers and students will build new printers for use in teaching and research. This is all taking place at AU Engineering’s campus in Katrinebjerg. (Photo: Jesper Rais)

Students build fifty advanced technology 3D printers

Students at Aarhus University have launched what could be Denmark’s largest production of advanced technology 3D printers. During the course of three Fridays in January, they will each build a printer so they can set up laboratories at home in their own living rooms.

Three engineering students have developed a new technology that enables more precise and effective radiation therapy of cervical cancer. It took less than six months from the initial idea to completion of the prototype, and the first patient has already been treated.

Images from an MRI scan are put into a computer-based design program. Here the user calculates how the radioactive rays hit the cervical tumour most precisely, and then presses the print button. Nine hours later, a small holder is ready for the needles that direct the beams, and this invention can prove to have great significance for the treatment of cancer patients. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

3D print improves cancer treatment

A new medical 3D print technology can provide better and more precise radiation therapy of cervical cancer. Three engineering students are behind the invention, together with doctors at Aarhus University Hospital.
