Newly born neutron star detected in nearby supernova
Newly born neutron star detected in nearby supernova
An international team of astronomers including UCL's Professor Mike Barlow has discovered the first conclusive evidence that a neutron star exists at the centre of Supernova 1987A, a star explosion observed 37 years ago. Supernovae are the spectacular end result of the collapse of stars more massive than 8-10 times the mass of the sun.

Researchers harness 2D magnetic materials for energy-efficient computing
An MIT team precisely controlled an ultrathin magnet at room temperature, which could enable faster, more efficient processors and computer memories. Experimental computer memories and processors built from magnetic materials use far less energy than traditional silicon-based devices. Two-dimensional magnetic materials, composed of layers that are only a few atoms thick, have incredible properties that could allow magnetic-based devices to achieve unprecedented speed, efficiency, and scalability.

This tiny, tamper-proof ID tag can authenticate almost anything
MIT engineers developed a tag that can reveal with near-perfect accuracy whether an item is real or fake. The key is in the glue on the back of the tag. A few years ago, MIT researchers invented a cryptographic ID tag that is several times smaller and significantly cheaper than the traditional radio frequency tags (RFIDs) that are often affixed to products to verify their authenticity.

Treating liver cancer with microrobots
Canadian researchers led by Montreal radiologist Gilles Soulez have developed a novel approach to treat liver tumours using magnet-guided microrobots in an MRI device. The idea of injecting microscopic robots into the bloodstream to heal the human body is not new. It's also not science fiction. Guided by an external magnetic field, miniature biocompatible robots, made of magnetizable iron oxide nanoparticles, can theoretically provide medical treatment in a very targeted manner.

Tailoring chemical bonds
Solids can exist in two structurally very different phases: the crystal phase and the glass phase. While the short-range order of the atoms in both phases is generally very similar, only the atoms of the crystal have a long-range order. The similarity of the short-range order is attributed to the similarity of the chemical bonding between the atoms in both phases.
