Quantum research race lights up the world

The race towards quantum computing is heating up. Faster, brighter, more exacting – these are all terms that could be applied as much to the actual science as to the research effort going on in labs around the globe.

Biodiversity on the move

Just like Nemo, Australia's blue water Research Vessel Investigator has spent three days drifting in the East Australian Current (EAC). Researchers on board have been investigating microscopic marine life that forms the base ...

Kangaroo Island could be powered by 100 percent renewable energy

South Australia's iconic Kangaroo Island could be powered by up to 100 per cent renewable energy at a comparable cost to replacing the aging undersea electrical cable connecting the island to the mainland grid, a new study ...

Occupational suicide—when work kills the will to live

Occupational suicide is hugely under-researched but the workplace has a vital role in building bonds that help keep people well and safe, a group of management researchers say in a new paper.

Sydney coral recovery is nature's warning shot

A team of marine biologists from the University of Technology Sydney and Macquarie University provided the first evidence of bleaching in Sydney Harbour's unique temperate corals last April. Since then, the scientists have ...

Quantum leap in quest for digital speed and security

Society's increasing reliance on the internet, computers and mobile phones puts stringent demands on technological developments. Shrinking the electronic components – in other words, increasing the number of transistors ...

Towards 100% renewable energy for Kangaroo Island

Can Australia's iconic Kangaroo Island be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy? This is the focus of a new study announced today by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in partnership with the Kangaroo Island Council.

Algae building blooms

A multi-disciplinary team bringing together science, sustainable building design and architecture may soon develop the first living algae buildings in Australia. Their unique collaboration has seen a comprehensive feasibility ...
