Copying nature’s lock-and-key system could improve rapid medical diagnostics
Researchers have designed a system that rapidly recognises the specific biological molecules that can indicate disease. The team from Imperial College London have developed a nanoscale sensor that can selectively detect protein molecules at the single-molecule level, which could help in early stage clinical diagnosis.

Research creates new possibilities to design new materials with strange and exotic properties
The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics celebrated the rich behaviour of two-dimensional (2D) materials, like atoms, molecules, or electrons that are confined to move on a flat surface. Compared to their three dimensional (3D) counterparts, such materials exhibit new and exotic properties, the elucidation of which is at the cutting edge of condensed matter physics research.

Fossilised cosmic dust in white cliffs of Dover
Researchers from Imperial College London report that the white cliffs of Dover contain the fossilised remains of cosmic dust. The significance of this discovery, published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters , is that the fossilised cosmic dust could provide a new source of information about the early solar system.

Scientists make methanol using air around us
Scientists at Cardiff University have created methanol from methane using oxygen from the air. Methanol is currently produced by breaking down natural gas at high temperatures into hydrogen gas and carbon monoxide before reassembling them - expensive and energy-intensive processes known as ‘steam reforming' and ‘methanol synthesis.' But researchers at Cardiff Catalysis Institute have discovered they can produce methanol from methane through simple catalysis that allows methanol production at low temperatures using oxygen and hydrogen peroxide.

Defects in next-generation solar cells can be healed with light
Researchers have shown that defects in the molecular structure of perovskites - a material which could revolutionise the solar cell industry - can be "healed" by exposing it to light and just the right amount of humidity. We want to know the origins of the defects so that we can eliminate them and make perovskites more efficient.

Fluorescent crystal mystery solved
A decades-old mystery of why a naturally-occurring organic crystal fluoresces blue under ultra-violet light, yet when grown under laboratory conditions fluoresces with an intense green colour, has been solved by scientists from the University of Bristol. The colour of crystals is a function of their atomic structure.

Lasers used to detect risk of heart attack and stroke
Patients at risk of heart attacks and strokes may be spotted earlier thanks to a diagnosis tool that uses near-infrared light to identify high-risk arterial plaques, according to research carried out at WMG, University of Warwick, the Baker Institute and Monash University. The scientists observed that when they increased the wavelength of the light currently used to visualise the fatty build-up found in arteries (atherosclerotic plaques) they could selectively identify the rupture-prone deposits, which commonly lead to blood clots, heart attacks and strokes.

Collagen in cartilage tissues behaves like liquid crystals in a smart phone screen
Cartilage in our joints contains collagen which behaves a bit like the liquid crystals on a smart phone screen, according to researchers at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The collagen changes its crystallinity in response to physical forces, so the ordered arrangement in collagen molecules of the cartilage in our knees may be flipping from one structural state to another with every step we take.

Levitation techniques are no longer confined to the laboratory thanks to University of Bristol engineers who have developed an easier way for suspending matter in mid-air by developing a 3D-printed acoustic levitator. This new technique, published in Review of Scientific Instruments, could be applied to a range of applications, including blood tests.

’Retraining’ the immune system
It may be possible to ‘retrain' the immune system to slow the progression of type 1 diabetes, according to a study by Cardiff University and King's College London. Researchers leading the MonoPepT1De trial observed noticeable changes in the behaviour of the immune systems of type 1 diabetes patients that had been injected with peptides - small fragments of the protein molecules found in the beta cells of the pancreas.

Physicists shed light on rarely seen 16th Century metal-working technique
Imperial researchers have tested a 'blued' gauntlet from a 16th-century suit of armour with a method usually used to study solar panels. Metalworkers have used various techniques to prevent steel from rusting, some of which turn the metal black-blue. This ‘blueing' effect can be created in several different ways, including by applying heat or (in later years) chemicals.

New clue to solving the mystery of the sun’s hot atmosphere
The elemental composition of the Sun's hot atmosphere known as the 'corona' is strongly linked to the 11-year solar magnetic activity cycle, a team of scientists from UCL, George Mason University and Naval Research Laboratory has revealed for the first time. The study, published and funded by the NASA Hinode program, shows that an increase in magnetic activity goes hand in hand with an increase of certain elements, such as Iron, in the solar corona.
