JYU exceeded the target for master’s and doctoral degrees in 2018

Doctoral education at the University of Jyväskylä works excellently. Once again, the University exceeded its target for the number of doctoral degrees. The University had in total new 139 doctors last year. In 2017, the number was 148. The University has exceeded the target for doctoral degrees every year in the 2010s.

A new ‘chemical nose’ sniffs out pollutants in the environment

Many pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, freon substitutes, dyes and drugs e.g. antibiotics are pollutants in the environment. The molecular quirk makes it difficult to identify and remove many of these pollutants. The group of scientists is engineering next-gen receptor molecules that flag the presence of specific pesticides and other pollutants and integrate them with smart nano-devices before deploying them directly in the environment.

The most powerful ion source in the world is now in the JYFL-ACCLAB

A new ion source known as HIISI has been developed in the Accelerator Laboratory of the University of Jyväskylä (JYFL-ACCLAB). It is the most powerful room-temperature ion source in the world at the moment. A new facility allows for much higher ion beam intensities and energies from our main cyclotron. It will be used in fundamental research and in testing components of space satellites.

Dissertation: 1.3.2019 M.Sc. Luis Cort Barrada (Faculty of Mathematics and Science, The Department of Physics)
Mar 01, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 04:00 PM

One of the most used methods in condensed matter theory and quantum chemistry for the description of matter properties is Time-dependent density-functional theory (TDDFT), an alternative formalism to wave function methods which uses the time-dependent electronic density for the determination of any quantum average of an electronic system. In his dissertation M.Sc Luis Cort Barrada has tested Time-dependent density-functional theory with SCE density functionals which describe physics of strongly interacting electrons.
