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.

Coloured artificial light can regulate our circadian rhythm and provide us with a better sleep quality. But how should the light be combined and interact with daylight? How strong should it be? What colour composition and heat balance are optimal? Could it be thought that the good mix is individual? Researchers are in the process of studying the full potential of circadian rhythm lighting in a pilot study among nursing home residents. (Photo: Colourbox)
Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard wants a closer understanding of how coloured circadian rhythm lighting and its interaction with the surroundings and daylight can be incorporated into the architecture. He hopes that in the future we will be able to live in buildings that provide better sleep quality. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

Coloured light helps elderly people to sleep better

Researchers at Aarhus University are studying the effect on the elderly of a special form of circadian rhythm lighting. The light changes colour during the day, and the first tests indicate that it can provide a better quality of sleep.

The corridors will be crowded at Navitas, Hangøvej, Katrinebjerg and Herning. A total of 991 young people ticked an engineering degree programme at Aarhus University as their first priority, of which 892 go to AU Engineering, Science and Technology, and 99 to Aarhus BSS.

An arm from an industrial robot, a scanning head produced in a 3D printer, and a small amount of new robotic technology. These are the main ingredients in the invention made by two students in connection with their now completed MSc project. The patent is in the bag and they will launch an ultrasound robot on the global market in a few months. (Photo: Johannes Hollensberg)

Smart robot can send ultrasound scans across the Internet

Two students have built a robotic ultrasound scanner that makes it possible for doctors to carry out image-diagnostic procedures on patients located at a distance from hospitals. The invention will be launched on the global market in the course of a few months.

High-technological faeces will detect bowel problems

A new measurement method will make life easier for people with defecation problems. A group of engineering students in Aarhus is collaborating with Chinese researchers to develop intelligent artificial faeces that can reveal what causes bowel problems in people who go to the toilet too infrequently, too often or too late.

Carpenter Prize 2015 awarded to Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard

Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard, Department of Engineering, has been awarded the Danish Carpenter Prize (Tømrerpris) for his work with wood as a building material.

Stine Pedersen won this year’s European university competition in indoor environment technology. She built a small machine that registers indoor environment conditions for the first time, as well as providing feedback from people in the room. Her initial empirical study indicates that the way we experience indoor comfort is much more subjective than researchers previously thought. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

MSc Eng student achieves victory for Denmark at the European indoor environment championship

A graduate engineering student from Aarhus University won the REHVA Student Competition 2015 in Latvia. Students from all over Europe competed for the prize for the best invention in the field of indoor environment technology.

Air quality affects the performance ability of schoolchildren

When the concentration of carbon dioxide in the classroom falls, pupils achieve better results in tests. Researchers at Aarhus University are behind a new study that shows a direct correlation between air quality and the children’s concentration and performance ability.

New plant converts biomass to bio-oil

On 22 May 2015, Aarhus University is inaugurating an HTL pilot plant at AU Foulum. The new plant converts organic materials such as grass or organic waste into bio-crude oil, which can replace fossil oil for producing fuels and chemicals. The plant is based on newly developed, ground-breaking technologies.
