Duo of titanic galaxies caught in extreme starbursting merger
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.

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.

Scientists write ’traps’ for light with tiny ink droplets
A microscopic 'pen' that is able to write structures small enough to trap and harness light using a commercially available printing technique could be used for sensing, biotechnology, lasers, and studying the interaction between light and matter. Previous efforts to combine these two areas had bumped into the limitations of conventional inkjet printing technology.

Researchers help inspire Scotland’s new laws to ban smacking
The decision by the Scottish government to ban smacking has been welcomed by UCL researchers whose report into the damage caused to children by physical punishment played a key part in framing the proposed new legislation. The research in 2015 by Anja Heilmann, Yvonne Kelly and Richard Watt from the UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care showed that there was ample evidence that physical punishment can damage children and escalate into physical abuse.

Electroplating: the birth of a single nucleus caught ’in camera’
Electroplating, or electrodeposition, is one of the most important processes in chemistry, in which a metal cation in solution can be reduced to its elemental form by applying an electrical potential to an electrode. This enables electrical contacts to be made in integrated circuits with nanometric precision.

Men who are physically active in mid-life are more likely to continue the habit into older age as well, finds a long term tracking study led by UCL. Playing sport is the physical activity most likely to stand the test of time, according to the findings published in BMJ Open today, prompting the researchers to suggest that encouraging early and sustained participation in sports might help people to stay active in old age.

Researchers have quantified the astonishingly high speeds at which future solar cells would have to operate in order to stretch what are presently seen as natural limits on their energy conversion efficiency. The timescale that we calculated is now the time limit that we have to operate within if we want to create super-efficient, hot carrier solar devices.
