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.
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.
Lasers could heat materials to temperatures hotter than the centre of the Sun in only 20 quadrillionths of a second, according to new research.
