Researchers from the Department of Computer Science have helped to expose a security flaw in Intel processors. More than 80 per cent of all computers and servers use these processors. The security flaw makes the hardware vulnerable to hackers. "Our research focuses on designing secure computer processors, among other things," says Jo Van Bulck from the KU Leuven Department of Computer Science.
Astronomy - May 6

Blue supergiants are rock 'n' roll: they live fast and die young. This makes them rare and difficult to study. Before space telescopes were invented, few blue supergiants had been observed, so our knowledge of these stars was limited.

Physics - Apr 8

What is the impact of weathering processes on microplastics, and how do the particles spread across seas and oceans' Computer models developed by hydraulics engineers from KU Leuven may help to find the answers.

A cardboard sign with a colourful print. That's all researchers from the Faculty of Engineering Technology at KU Leuven needed to fool a smart camera. To be clear: Wiebe Van Ranst, Simen Thys, and Toon Goedemé from the EAVISE research group don't have evil intentions.

How did bioscience engineers at KU Leuven manage to convert water vapour directly into hydrogen gas, with record efficiency? And does their hydrogen panel signal the end of fossil fuels' We asked Johan Martens and Tom Bosserez from the Centre for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis for the answers.
