Three Earth-sized planets have been discovered orbiting a dim and cool star, and may be the best place to search for life beyond the Solar System.
News from the Cavendish Laboratory.
Researchers have built a nano-engine that could form the basis for future applications in nano-robotics, including robots small enough to enter living cells.
A Cambridge-led project aiming to develop a new architecture for future computing based on superconducting spintronics - technology designed to increase the energy-efficiency of high-performance computers and data storage - has been announced.
The £26 million Maxwell Centre will focus on “blue skies” research in areas such as efficient energy generation, storage and use, including work on photovoltaics, energy storage, refrigeration, lighting and ICT.
Researchers have observed the ‘fingerprint’ of a mysterious new quantum state of matter in a two-dimensional material, in which electrons break apart.
Perovskite materials can recycle light particles – a finding which could lead to a new generation of affordable, high-performance solar cells.
New window on the universe is opened with the observation of gravitational waves – ripples in spacetime – caused by the collision of two black holes.
