Mind the liquid gap: liquids are capable of supporting waves with short wavelengths only
Flowing particles in liquids act as a filter to suppress long-wavelength waves but allow short-wavelength ones to be supported, according to physicists at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). Liquids are the least understood state of matter and for a long time it has been believed that they can sustain both gas-like waves with long wavelengths and solid-like waves with short wavelengths, but it wasn??t clear just how solid-like waves propagate in liquids.

Physicists squeeze extra data from superfast x-ray probes using machine learning
Chemical reactions could be probed in even greater detail using a method invented by Imperial researchers that better characterises ultrafast x-rays. X-rays can be used to investigate the structures of, and reactions between, molecules on very small scales and at high speed. To do this, scientists use free electron lasers (FELs) to create a train of x-ray pulses.

Scientists publish first comprehensive map of proteins within cells
The first analysis of how proteins are arranged in a cell has been , revealing that a large portion of human proteins can be found in more than one location in a given cell. We have created the most detailed map of how proteins are arranged in a cell Kathryn Lilley Using the Sweden-based Cell Atlas, researchers examined the spatial distribution of the human proteome (the entire complement of proteins that make up the human body) that correspond to the majority of protein-coding genes.

Next-gen solar cells could be improved by atomic-scale redesign
Researchers have uncovered the exact mechanism that causes new solar cells to break down in air, paving the way for a solution. Solar cells harness energy from the Sun and provide an alternative to non-renewable energy sources like fossil fuels. However, they face challenges from costly manufacturing processes and poor efficiency - the amount of sunlight converted to useable energy.
