Bubbles are the new lenses for nanoscale light beams
Bending light beams to your whim sounds like a job for a wizard or an a complex array of bulky mirrors, lenses and prisms, but a few tiny liquid bubbles may be all that is necessary to open the doors for next-generation, high-speed circuits and displays, according to Penn State researchers. View News Article (2013-08-09)

Quantum manipulation: Filling the gap between quantum and classical world
Quantum superposition is a fundamental and also intriguing property of the quantum world. Because of superposition, a quantum system can be in two different states simultaneously, like a cat that can be both "dead" and "alive" at the same time. View News Article (2014-04-15)

Space technology for McLaren at the British Grand Prix
At the British Grand Prix next weekend, the McLaren team will have a special boost from space technology: their mechanics` suits will feature a cooling system, specially developed from the astronauts` suits by the Technology Transfer Programme of the European Space Agency. The McLaren mechanics` suits are the unique product of a team grouping together the ESA Technology Transfer Programme... View News Article (2002-07-05)

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)
