EIS seminar with professor Jan Ljungberg and docent Magnus Bergqvist from the IT university in Gothenburg talked about Open source.
Kl. 10:30 i E217 höll professor Bo Thidé från Uppsala universitet ett seminarium om en fysikaliskt banbrytande metod att överföra information på en radiokanal. Metoden skulle kunna medge bättre avbildande interferometri i radartillämpningar samt effektivare radiokommunikation.
En översiktlig beskrivning av Bo Thidés och hans kollegors arbete finner man på följande länk, http://www.newsdesk.se/view/pressrelease/svenska-forskare-introducerar-banbrytande-metoder-163899
