Simulation method identifies materials for better batteries

Simulation method identifies materials for better batteries

Researchers from the University of Cambridge and University College London have devised a new simulation technique which reliably predicts the structure and behaviour of different materials, in order to accelerate the development of next-generation batteries for a wide range of applications.

Watching molecules dance in real time

Watching molecules dance in real time

A new method which uses tightly confined light trapped between gold mirrors a billionth of a metre apart to watch molecules ‘dancing’ in real time could help researchers uncover many of the cell processes that are essential to all life, and how small changes to these processes can lead to diseases such as cancer or Alzheimer’s.
