Nanoparticles can reveal lung disease
Nanoparticles can be used to discover illness in the lungs. The method of measurement – based on inhaling particles – is easy to use and could serve as a complement to other lung examinations. The method has now been tested on more than 800 people, and the results look promising, according to a new thesis on aerosol technology at the Faculty of [...]
Atmospheric research in Europe reaches new heights
ACTRIS is a state-of-the-art European research infrastructure within atmospheric science. The European Commission has now decided to establish ACTRIS ERIC – a consortium for research infrastructures linked to aerosols, clouds and reactive trace gases in order to increase knowledge about climate change and air pollution. The consortium includes 17 [...]

LTH launches profile areas for stronger responses to societal challenges
Lund University’s Faculty of Engineering, LTH, is now launching profile areas for its collective excellence in research. The areas are interdisciplinary and will contribute to increased collaboration with business and industry as well as wider society. Seven themes form the profile areas: aerosols, circular construction industry, energy transition, [...]
Unique combo lab paves the way for new research breakthroughs
After a trip from Portugal, the new exposure chambers have arrived in Lund. LTH’s aerosol and climate scientists welcome the lab delivery with great expectations and are getting ready for a four-week construction project.
Unique project studies fire smoke in detail
We all know that when it burns, it smokes. But what do we really know about the contents of that smoke and how it is affected by different fire processes? Not only that, how do these smoke particles affect the emergency personnel who are first on the scene? Researchers at LTH, in a unique experiment with the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency [...]
New knowledge about airborne virus could help hospitals
The risk of being exposed to Covid-19 particles increases with shorter physical distance to a patient, higher patient viral load and poor ventilation. Measurements taken by researchers at Lund University in Sweden of airborne virus in hospitals provide new knowledge about how best to adapt healthcare to reduce the risk of spread of infection. [...]
