Researchers at the University of Melbourne have developed a one-step method for coating microscopic materials, such as bacterial cells, with thin films that assemble themselves.
A common myth which has persisted around medieval cathedrals is that the stained glass inside them becomes thicker at the bottom because it moves over time. But a team at Texas Tech University has shown that the glass is not going anywhere.
Atoms at negative absolute temperature are the hottest systems in the world.
According to psychological lore, when it comes to items of information the mind can cope with before confusion sets in, the ‘magic’ number is seven. But a new analysis by a leading Australian psychiatrist challenges this long-held view, suggesting the number might actually be four.
A team of researchers, including engineers from Los Alamos National Laboratory, has demonstrated a new concept for a reliable nuclear reactor that could be used on space flights.
Scientists have demonstrated in an experiment that captured ions can be cooled through contact with cold atoms and may thus be stored in so-called ion traps in a stable condition for longer periods of time.
At a ceremony at the School of Science and Technology at Örebro University, Sweden, Waters has announced the selection of the MTM Research Center for its Centers of Innovation Program for research in the field of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) now regulated under provisions of the Stockholm Convention.
Australia’s newest radio telescope is predicted to find an unprecedented 700,000 new galaxies, say scientists planning for CSIRO’s next-generation Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP).
The history of our solar system is being uncovered using Australia’s only nuclear reactor. The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) has partnered with Germany’s prestigious Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (MPIC) in order to analyse chondrules - multibillion-year-old particles from outer space.
Dr Anton Desyatnikov from the Nonlinear Physics Centre at The Australian National University is part of an international team of scientists who are designing knots in light.
The most unambiguous data to date on the elusive 113th atomic element has been obtained by researchers at the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science (RNC).
A physicist at the University of York has played a key role in international research which has made an important advance in establishing the catalytic properties of gold at a nano level.
For the first time, engineers at the University of New South Wales have demonstrated that hydrogen can be released and reabsorbed from a promising storage material, overcoming a major hurdle to its use as an alternative fuel source.
A new $33 million supercomputer to be installed at the purpose-built Pawsey Centre in Perth will soon help scientists around Australia and the world to uncover the secrets of the universe.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT in Pfinztal have developed a method for safer production of nitroglycerine: a microreactor process, tailored to this specific reaction.
