Researchers substantially boost sensitivity of terahertz gas analysis

A new advance promises to increase the sensitivity of high-resolution spectrometers that perform chemical analysis using terahertz wavelengths. This higher sensitivity could benefit many applications, such as analysis of the complex gas mixtures found in industrial emissions and detection of biomarkers of disease in the breath of patients. It could …

Magnetic wave flows under better control from now on

Even faster processors with even smaller dimensions? Wherever neither electronics nor spintronics can cope with performance or miniaturization, magnonics comes to the rescue. But before that happens, scientists must learn how to accurately simulate the flow of magnetic waves through magnonic crystals. At the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the …

Decoding the fundamental mechanisms of human salivary lubrication

A team of scientists led by the University of Leeds have uncovered the fundamental mechanism by which human saliva lubricates our mouth. Their multi-scale study opens the door to advancing dry mouth therapies and saliva substitutes – potentially bringing relief to people who suffer from dry mouth, which can affect …

UK parties set out big plans on climate change in manifestos

The UK’s Labour party pledged to fund more “targeted science, research and innovation” to tackle climate change, deal with the plastic waste filling our ocean and address problems such as the ageing population and antibiotic resistance, in its manifesto published on Thursday. Jeremy Corbyn’s centre-left party, which hopes to get …
