By forcing light to go through a smaller gap than ever before, researchers have paved the way for computers based on light instead of electronics.
The Indus or Harappan Civilisation was a Bronze Age society that developed mainly in the northwestern regions of South Asia from 5300 to 3300 years ago, at about the same time as urban civilisations developed in Mesopotamia ...
By finely tuning the distance between nanoparticles in a single layer, researchers have made a filter that can change between a mirror and a window.
Researchers have found evidence of how ancient Britain separated from Europe, which happened in two stages, they report today in Nature Communications.
Using ultrafast imaging of moving energy in photosynthesis, scientists have determined the speed of crucial processes for the first time.
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.
Scientists studying the Chicxulub crater have shown how large asteroid impacts deform rocks in a way that may produce habitats for early life.
Researchers have created a 3D printed cosmic microwave background - a map of the oldest light in the universe - and provided the files for download.
Scientists at Imperial College London have discovered a feedback mechanism at the heart of photosynthesis that protects plants from damage by light.
The universe is not spinning or stretched in any particular direction, according to the most stringent test yet.
