    The Nobel Prize in Physics 2011 was awarded to the puzzling discovery that the Universe is not only expanding, but doing so with ever increasing speed, whereas in the standard picture of cosmology it was expected to slow down. This acceleration could either be due to a ...

    Light is a versatile tool for imaging and engineering on microscopic scales. Optical microscopes use focused light so that we can view specimens with high resolution. These microscopes are widely used in the life sciences to permit the visualisation of cellular structur...

    I propose a new perspective and approach to understanding the interactions and interplay between quantum systems and their surrounding environments. By redrawing the boundary between what we term the system and what we term the environment, I shall provide a unified fra...

    Positrons are the antiparticles of electrons. They are produced in abundance in our Galaxy, and are readily obtained on Earth using accelerators or radioactive isotopes. When positrons come into contact with their matter counterparts, the pair annihilate in a pyrotechni...

    Almost all engineering systems and many biological ones contain components that are loaded and rub against one another, such as gears and bearings in machines and hip and knee joints in humans. This rubbing results both in friction, that wastes energy, and in wear and o...
