New research suggests that it is possible to create a new form of light by binding light to a single electron, combining the properties of both.
Imperial College London physicists have discovered how to create matter from light - a feat thought impossible when the idea was first theorised 80 years ago.
Scientists behind a theory that the speed of light is variable - and not constant as Einstein suggested - have made a prediction that could be tested.
The universe is not spinning or stretched in any particular direction, according to the most stringent test yet.
(Phys.org) —New research by a team of European physicists could explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang.
The synthetic biologists from Imperial College London have re-engineered yeast cells to manufacture the nonribosomal peptide antibiotic penicillin. In laboratory experiments, they were able to demonstrate that this yeast ...
(Phys.org) —Rows of aluminum studs help solar panels extract more energy from sunlight than those with flat surfaces.
Imperial researchers have tested a 'blued' gauntlet from a 16th-century suit of armour with a method usually used to study solar panels.
New experimental results show a difference in the way neutrinos and antineutrinos behave, which could explain why matter persists over antimatter.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers describe how to carry out the first experimental test of string theory in a paper published tomorrow in Physical Review Letters.
