Sound waves levitate multiple objects - future technology for contactless medical procedures
Sound waves levitate multiple objects - future technology for contactless medical procedures
In the perhaps not so distant future, surgeons could perform a range of medical procedures all without touching the patient. Surgeons won't be shrunk and sent into the body like in the 1960s Sci-Fi, Fantastic Voyage, but could program a specialised array of mini-speakers to create an intricate sound field that ‘traps' and manipulates selected objects in ‘acoustic tweezers' for manipulation within tissue.

’Molecular hopper’ created, small enough to move single DNA strands
Researchers from the University of Oxford have constructed a "molecular hopper", capable of moving single strands of DNA through a protein nanotube. The tiny hopper works by making and breaking in sequence simple chemical bonds that attach it to a nanoscale track. This can be turned on, off or reversed by a small electrical potential, which ultimately might make it suitable for use in nanopore DNA sequencing devices.

MeerKAT telescope unveiled in South Africa
Data gained from a giant telescope in South Africa will help to shape our understanding of the universe and how stars and galaxies are formed. MeerKAT consists of 64 interconnected dishes, each 13.5m in diameter, that together form a single radio telescope. MeerKAT is an impressive South African achievement, assisted by a cohort of international scientists, including researchers from Oxford University and the Africa Oxford Initiative.

Swimming bacteria work together to go with the flow
Swimming bacteria can reduce the viscosity of ordinary liquids like water and make them flow more easily, sometimes down to the point where the viscosity becomes zero: the flow is then frictionless.

Polymer crystals hold key to record-breaking energy transport
Polymer crystals hold key to record-breaking energy transport
Scientists from the universities of Bristol and Cambridge have found a way to create polymeric semiconductor nanostructures that absorb light and transport its energy further than previously observed. This could pave the way for more flexible and more efficient solar cells and photodetectors. The researchers, whose work appears , say their findings could be a “game changer” by allowing the energy from sunlight absorbed in these materials to be captured and used more efficiently.
