Dissertation: 14.12.2018: Conservation of wood-inhabiting fungi is complicated (Purhonen)
Dec 14, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 04:00 PM

Many wood-inhabiting fungi suffer from the changes caused by forest management. For that reason, the different fungal groups and tree species should be better addressed in the conservation planning. New information about the wood-inhabiting fungi of boreal forest helps to assess the effects of forest management more precisely than before.

Dissertation: 18.12.2018: New hybrid material for in next generation flexible touch screen? (Shao)
Dec 18, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 04:00 PM

The latest dissertation of Physics gives important information to the nano-electronic and nano-biotechnology. The flexible transparent conductive thin films (TCFs) could use new complex of the environmental friendly hemisellulose with carbon nanotube. It could use in next generation flexible touch screen. In addition the found of functionality of chi-avidin could be used in biosensors.

Dissertation: 7.12.2018: Theoretical predictions help the dark matter hunt (Pirinen)
Dec 07, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 03:00 PM

A new PhD thesis in the University of Jyväskylä shows how utilizing tellurium as a detector material can help detect dark matter more effectively than currently used materials. The research also lays a foundation for differentiating between collisions caused by dark matter and neutrinos, the so-called ghost particles, in dark matter detectors using xenon.
