Developing a secure, un-hackable net
Developing a secure, un-hackable net
A method of securely communicating between multiple quantum devices has been developed by a UCL-led team of scientists, bringing forward the reality of a large-scale, un-hackable quantum network. To date, communicating via quantum networks has only been possible between two devices of known provenance that have been built securely.

Santa has never been stuck up the chimney says Warwick quantum physicist
Father Christmas may use 'quantum tunnelling' to get in and out of our homes at Christmas He may also have mastered quantum interference and be employing quantum computing to help him meet his annual global delivery target A researcher at the University of Warwick is challenging the theory that 'Santa got stuck up the chimney' by suggesting that he uses 'quantum tunnelling' to get himself in and out of our homes.

Treatment cuts migraine days by half
A new King's College London study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), shows treatment with a drug called erenumab cut the number of days with migraine symptoms for 50 per cent of patients. Across the UK, an estimated 8.5 million people live with migraine and research suggests the condition is likely to impact the lives of almost 200,000 people every day.

Cooking fats could be affecting cloud formation
Cooking fats could be affecting cloud formation
Fats released into the atmosphere from cookers such as deep fat fryers may be enhancing the formation of clouds, which have a major cooling effect on the planet. In a Nature Communications paper, scientists demonstrated for the first time that fatty acid molecules emitted during cooking can spontaneously form complex 3D structures in atmospheric aerosol droplets.

New way to write magnetic info could pave the way for hardware neural networks
Researchers have shown how to write any magnetic pattern desired onto nanowires, which could help computers mimic how the brain processes information. Much current computer hardware, such as hard drives, use magnetic memory devices. These rely on magnetic states - the direction microscopic magnets are pointing - to encode and read information.

Duo of titanic galaxies caught in extreme starbursting merger
A pair of exceptionally rare hyper-luminous star-forming galaxies have been discovered, representing an extreme galaxy merger. The two extremely bright and massive galaxies have been caught in the act of merging in the early universe. These so-called hyper-luminous starburst galaxies are exceedingly rare at this epoch; as a pair, they may represent one of the most-extreme examples of violent star formation ever observed.

Probing the nature of the neutrino using SuperNEMO
One mile beneath a mountain in the French Alps, an international team involving UCL scientists is hoping to unlock more secrets of the mysterious neutrino using a new, cutting-edge experiment called SuperNEMO. A UCL team helped to build the hardware and software being used by SuperNEMO - the Super Neutrino Ettore Majorana Observatory - which officially opens at Modane Underground Laboratory in the south of France today.

New approach lays groundwork for manufacturing with light
An international team of researchers has developed a new light-based manipulation method that could one day be used to mass produce light-based devices and electronic components for smartphones, computers and other electronics. Optical traps, which use light to hold and move small objects in liquid, are promising as a non-contact method to assemble electronic and optical devices.

Are discarded cigarette butts the next high performing hydrogen storage material?
Discarded cigarette butts are a major waste disposal and environmental pollution hazard. But chemists at the University of Nottingham have discovered that cigarette butt-derived carbons have ultra-high surface area and unprecedented hydrogen storage capacity. The research was carried out by Robert Mokaya , Professor of Materials Chemistry, and Troy Scott Blankenship, an undergraduate project student, in the School of Chemistry and has been published in the academic journal Energy and Environmental Science .

’Twisted’ light could illuminate new path for wireless communications
Scientists have taken an important step towards using ‘twisted' light as a form of wireless, high-capacity data transmission which could make fibre-optics obsolete. In a new report published today (Thursday 26 October) in the journal Science Advances , a team of physicists based in the UK, Germany, New Zealand and Canada describe how new research into ‘optical angular momentum' (OAM) could overcome current difficulties with using twisted light across open spaces.
