New method for waking up devices
A device that's turned off doesn't suck battery life, but it also doesn't work. Now a low-power system that's always on the alert can turn devices on when they are needed, saving energy in the networked internet of things. As smartphone users know all too well, a sleeping device can still suck the life out of a battery.

Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus
Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus
For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras. But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require lenses made of a new array of materials.

Solving the Dark Energy Mystery: A New Assignment for a 45-Year-Old Telescope
Solving the Dark Energy Mystery: A New Assignment for a 45-Year-Old Telescope
Forty-five years ago this month, a telescope tucked inside a 14-story, 500-ton dome atop a mile-high peak in Arizona took in the night sky for the first time and recorded its observations in glass photographic plates. Today, the dome closes on the previous science chapters of the 4-meter Nicholas U. Mayall Telescope so that it can prepare for its new role in creating the largest 3-D map of the universe.

Striking the right balance between secrecy and accountability when undercover policing goes wrong
Police and security agencies need to work harder to defend their decision to maintain secrecy when historic police misconduct and abuse of power come under scrutiny, according to a new analysis of the legal arguments called upon to justify a kneejerk non-disclosure policy. Media coverage of alleged historic misconduct by undercover police officers has led to the creation of a public inquiry into undercover policing.

Research will help scientists understand how stars create elements
The abundance of the different elements in a star depends primarily on the structure and behaviour of atomic nuclei. New research involving ANU has, for the first time, demonstrated a long-theorised nuclear effect, in a feat that will help scientists understand how stars evolve and produce elements such as gold and platinum.
