Catching graphene butterflies
Catching graphene butterflies
16 May 2013 Wonder material graphene, when combined with other graphene-like materials, paves the way for vast new areas of scientific discovery and previously unheard-of applications, University of Manchester researchers have revealed. Writing in Nature , a large international team led Dr Roman Gorbachev from The University of Manchester shows that, when graphene placed on top of insulating boron nitride, or 'white graphene', the electronic properties of graphene change dramatically revealing a pattern resembling a butterfly.

Treating the virtual patient
Treating the virtual patient
Researchers at Cardiff and Bristol Universities will today (Friday 19 April) show how ground-breaking ultra high definition (UHD) technology is making a real difference in remote medical training and diagnosis, with 3D demonstrations on a 'virtual patient'. Already used by trainee radiographers at Cardiff University, UHD technology, using the UK's research and education high-speed data network Janet , has the potential to revolutionise the way medical training is conducted.

Free Web-Based Photo Enhancement Tool Developed By UT Austin Scientists
AUSTIN, Texas — What began as an effort to better understand how animal and human visual systems work has led to a revolutionary method for enlarging and enhancing photos that is being made available, free of charge, from the Center for Perceptual Systems at The University of Texas at Austin. Wilson Geisler, center director and professor in the Department of Psychology, said that the free image-processing website allows users to upload as many as 1,000 images daily.

Puzzle of how spiral galaxies get their arms comes into focus
As the shapes of galaxies go, the spiral disk — with its characteristic pinwheel profile — is by far the most pedestrian. This image and the video animation below show a simulation of arm formation in spiral galaxies. The simulation was performed by UW-Madison astrophysicist Elena D'Onghia, who led new research in the area along with Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics colleagues Mark Vogelsberger and Lars Hernquist.

Another step toward quantum computers: Using photons for memory
Another step toward quantum computers: Using photons for memory
Scientists at Yale University have found a new way to manipulate microwave signals that could aid the long-term effort to develop a quantum computer, a powerful tool that would revolutionize information processing through unprecedented speed and power. Like regular (classical) computers, quantum computers must be able to receive, store, and manipulate information in order to perform calculations.

Expression of emotion in books declined during 20th century, study finds
The use of words with emotional content in books has steadily decreased throughout the last century, according to new research from the Universities of Sheffield, Bristol and Durham. The study, published today in PLOS ONE , also found a divergence between American and British English, with the former being more 'emotional' than the latter.

Quantum algorithm breakthrough
Quantum algorithm breakthrough
An international research group has demonstrated a quantum algorithm that performs a true calculation for the first time. Quantum algorithms could one day enable the design of new materials, pharmaceuticals or clean energy devices. The team implemented the 'phase estimation algorithm' - a central quantum algorithm which achieves an exponential speedup over all classical algorithms.
