Really cheap 3D echo imaging
A plastic cap with a pattern of pinpricks. This seemingly simple adjustment means that high-quality 3D echoes can be produced much cheaper. Researchers from Erasmus MC and TU Delft published their findings in the journal Science Advances on Friday 8 December.

Additional heat in Dutch cities could be effectively reduced by reflective roofs
Changing the colour of roofing tiles could considerably reduce extreme temperatures in Dutch cities. Introducing this idea is Leyre Echevarría Icaza, who will be awarded her PhD at TU Delft for her work on this subject on Friday, 8 December 2017.
Burak Eral and Luigi Sasso join forces to fight kidney stones
When the opportunity arose to set up a cohesion project, Burak Eral did not hesitate for a second. Burak Eral is a Tenure-Track lecturer at the Department of Process & Energy in the area of crystallisation & solids processing. He knew right away who he wanted to work with: Luigi Sasso, a Tenure-Track lecturer at the Department of Precision and Microsystems Engineering and an expert in the area of micro-manufacturing and sensors. A good match, as it turns out. Burak and Luigi have come up with a method to fight kidney stones.
