Speech-friendly face mask could end frustration of muffled chat
Speech-friendly face mask could end frustration of muffled chat
A new face mask designed by Manchester researchers is promising to end the stress and anxiety talkers and listeners experience when they cover up. Designed by a team at The Universities of Manchester and Salford , and the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) , the revolutionary design will protect wearers from viruses such as COVID-19.

Pushing the Boundaries of Moore’s Law: How Can Extreme UV Light Produce Tiny Microchips?
For the past 25 years, CXRO scientists and engineers have worked side by side with microelectronics industry leaders to tackle the significant technological advances required to develop EUV lithography. (Credit: Marilyn Sargent/Berkeley Lab) Advances in microelectronics - also known as microchips or chips - have enabled fast, powerful, compact smartphones and laptops - electronic devices that were once, long ago, the stuff of science fiction.

Emulating impossible ’unipolar’ laser pulses paves the way for processing quantum information
Quantum materials emit light as though it were only a positive pulse, rather than a positive-negative oscillation. A laser pulse that sidesteps the inherent symmetry of light waves could manipulate quantum information, potentially bringing us closer to room temperature quantum computing. The study, led by researchers at the University of Regensburg and the University of Michigan, could also accelerate conventional computing.

Solar Orbiter shows the Sun as never seen before
Solar Orbiter shows the Sun as never seen before
Solar Orbiter, a European Space Agency (ESA) spacecraft carrying instruments proposed, designed and built at UCL, has had its closest approach yet to the Sun, providing breathtaking images and movies of the solar poles, of powerful flares, and of a curious solar "hedgehog". The close approach to the Sun, known as perihelion, took place on 26 March.

The lonely fate of a robot on Mars
The lonely fate of a robot on Mars
Science, Health & Technology Erik Rolfsen Covered in the red dust that sealed its fate, the NASA InSight lander is slowly shutting down, more than 250 million kilometres from home. With its solar panels now obscured by the red planet's debris, the four-year-old robot is running out of power. One by one, its instruments are being taken offline: its robotic arm moving into 'retirement pose', its seismometer likely to be turned off sometime in June.

When quantum particles fly like bees
Quantum simulator provides insights into the dynamics of complex quantum systems A quantum system consisting of only 51 charged atoms can assume more than two quadrillion different states. Calculating the system's behavior is a piece of cake for a quantum simulator. Yet even with today's supercomputers it is almost impossible to verify the result.
