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.

Engineers aim for the stars with new rocket engine
A ‘self-eating' rocket engine which could place small satellites in orbit more easily and more affordably is under development at universities in Scotland and Ukraine. In a paper published in the Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets , engineers from the University of Glasgow and Oles Honchar Dnipro National University in Ukraine discuss how they have built, fired, and for the first time throttled up and down an ‘autophage' engine which could change how small satellites are sent into space.

Welfare conditionality is ineffective, authors of major study say
Welfare conditionality within the social security system is largely ineffective and in some cases pushes people into poverty and crime, a major study involving the University of Glasgow has found. Welfare conditionality links eligibility for welfare benefits and services to responsibilities or particular patterns of behaviour, under threat of sanction for non-compliance.

Artificial cells-in-cells triggered by light act as mini chemical reactors
Artificial cells that release materials when exposed to light have been embedded in a durable membrane, allowing chemical reactions to be controlled. These structures could be used to control the synthesis of drugs in the body on demand, as well as function as microreactors that can simplify the production of valuable chemicals.

Resistance to antifungal drugs could lead to disease and global food shortages
Growing levels of resistance to antifungal treatments could lead to increased disease outbreaks and affect food security around the world. An international team, led by researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Exeter, warns that improvements are needed in how existing drugs are used, as well as an increased focus on the discovery of new treatments, in order to avoid a “global collapse” in our ability to control and fight fungal infections.

How Nagana is carried by tsetse flies
How Nagana is carried by tsetse flies
Researchers at the University of Bristol have revealed new details on how the animal disease Nagana is spread by tsetse flies in Africa. When animals are bitten by bloodsucking tsetse flies, they don't just get a painful bite, as the flies may be carrying a cargo of deadly microbes, trypanosomes. These microbes are squirted into the skin of the animal as the fly feeds and invade the bloodstream, causing the severe and sometimes fatal disease Nagana or African Animal Trypanosomiasis.
