New Nanocrystals could transform everything from cancer treatment to solar cells

Long Read

A team of scientists have used nontoxic silicon nanocrystals to convert low-energy photons into high-energy ones. The technique could lead improvements in everything from minimally invasive photodynamic treatments for cancer; to new solar-energy conversion tech; to new approaches to quantum information. A green lower-energy laser light goes through...

Did Scientists just Engineer A New Form of Matter?

Quick Read

A new form of matter called “Excitonium” has been confirmed by a team of scientists working at the University of California, Berkeley, and University of Amsterdam 50 years ago scientists theorised the possibility of a strange material called "excitonium" but thanks to innovative experimentation, researchers have now...

DNA Replication Filmed For The First Time

Long Read

Researchers have recorded up-close footage of a single DNA molecule replicates itself. New footage showing DNA Replication is raising questions about how we have always assumed the process works. The real-time footage shows this fundamental part of life involves an unexpected amount of 'randomness' and means we...
