Breakthrough in geomechanics research recognised by Royal Society
A research breakthrough by a University of Nottingham professor that will have important implications for engineering design involving rolling and sliding contact such as road railway foundations has been unveiled in a prestigious journal. View News Article (2005-05-24)


Gold in the realm of dwarves
"Man has been fascinated by gold since ancient times," says a bland introduction to related scientific studies. The fact that there is still room for surprises was shown by a recent publication: Nanoparticles of the precious metal behave differently from those of its close relatives. View News Article (2004-10-25)


Laser-cooling brings large object near absolute zero
Using a laser-cooling technique that could one day allow scientists to observe quantum behavior in large objects, MIT researchers have cooled a coin-sized object to within one degree of absolute zero. View News Article (2007-04-09)


Liquid spacetime
What if spacetime were a kind of fluid? This is the question tackled by theoretical physicists working on quantum gravity by creating models attempting to reconcile gravity and quantum mechanics. View News Article (2014-04-23)


You can't get entangled without a wormhole
Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics - so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a distance."  View News Article (2013-12-06)


Development of a new programme that simulates protein movements
Proteins are molecules involved in most of the biological processes that take place in our bodies. They have to move in order to fulfil many of their functions. View News Article (2013-09-12)


Faster simulation -- award for new method
Computer simulations have become an indispensable part of the modern design process. Standard finite element technology, however, requires designers to carry out a time-consuming and often error-prone mesh generation step that transfers the computer-aided design (CAD) model into the simulation model. View News Article (2012-07-13)


MIT researchers explain mystery of gravity fingers
Researchers at MIT recently found an elegant solution to a sticky scientific problem in basic fluid mechanics: why water doesn't soak into soil at an even rate, but instead forms what look like fingers of fluid flowing downward. View News Article (2008-12-12)


Tapping into plants is the key to combat climate change, says scientist
Understanding the way plants use and store light to produce energy could be the key ingredient in the fight against climate change, a scientist at Queen Mary, University of London says. View News Article (2011-06-02)


Researchers build an ultrasound version of the laser
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and at the University of Missouri at Rolla have built an ultrasound analogue of the laser. View News Article (2006-06-09)
