Solar-powered skin opens new possibilities for prosthetics
A new way of harnessing the sun's rays to power ‘synthetic skin' could help to create advanced prosthetic limbs capable of returning the sense of touch to amputees. Engineers from the University of Glasgow, who have previously developed an ‘electronic skin' covering for prosthetic hands made from graphene, have found a way to use some of graphene's remarkable physical properties to use energy from the sun to power the skin.

Caught on camera - chemical reactions 'filmed' at the single-molecule level
Scientists have succeeded in ‘filming' inter-molecular chemical reactions – using the electron beam of a transmission electron microscope (TEM) as a stop-frame imaging tool. They have also discovered that the electron beam can be simultaneously tuned to stimulate specific chemical reactions by using it as a source of energy as well as an imaging tool.

How can a quantum machine learn another quantum system?
How can a quantum machine learn another quantum system?
Quantum computing will soon enter a revolutionary new age of quantum supremacy, in which quantum computers are expected to outperform the computational power of the classical ones, unlocking new applications and technologies such as designing new drugs and processing big data. Before such a grand goal is achieved, a question remains as to how we can calibrate existing quantum computers and how can we verify their computing outcomes?

Distant galaxies are dominated by gas and stars - where is the Dark Matter?
Distant galaxies are dominated by gas and stars - where is the Dark Matter?
New observations of galaxies forming 10 billion years ago show they are dominated by ‘normal' matter, with so-called ‘dark matter' present in much smaller quantities than expected. By mapping the orbital speed of gas around the centre of six galaxies University of Bath researchers, working with an international group of scientists led by the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics , found that the orbital speed drops with distance out from the centre - unexpected evidence that dark matter is only present in small quantities.

Sound-shaping super-material invented
Sound-shaping super-material invented A super-material that bends, shapes and focuses sound waves that pass through it has been invented by scientists. The creation pushes the boundaries of metamaterials – a new class of finely-engineered surfaces that perform nature-defying tasks. These materials have already shown remarkable results with light manipulation, allowing scientists to create a real-life version of Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, for example.

Proteins are ’virtually’ knotted
Many of the processes essential to life involve proteins - long molecules which 'fold' into three-dimensional shapes allowing them to perform their biological role. Consisting of strings of amino acids, a folded protein molecule resembles a coiled, tangled piece of wire, which, as everyday experience suggests, may be knotted.

Immune system defence force captured in action
How the natural defence force within our immune system attacks and destroys harmful invaders such as virus-infected and cancerous cells has been visualised in microscopic detail by scientists from UCL, Birkbeck, University of London, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Monash University, Australia. The research, published today , deepens understanding of the critical role of the protein called ‘perforin' in a functioning immune system, bringing us one step closer to new therapies with the potential to boost or inhibit its impact when required.

Rudolph’s antlers inspire next generation of unbreakable materials
Scientists from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have discovered the secret behind the toughness of deer antlers and how they can resist breaking during fights. Wednesday 21 December 2016 The team looked at the antler structure at the 'nano-level', which is incredibly small, almost one thousandth of the thickness of a hair strand, and were able to identify the mechanisms at work, using state-of-the-art computer modelling and x-ray techniques.
