New phases of water detected

Scientists at the University of Cambridge have discovered that water in a one-molecule layer acts like neither a liquid nor a solid, and that it becomes highly conductive at high pressures.

Gallium oxide crystal complexity tamed by machine learning

Researchers at the University of Liverpool, the University of Bristol, University College London (UCL), and Diamond Light Source have developed new understanding of gallium oxide by combining a machine-learning theoretical ...

Quantum annealing can beat classical computing in limited cases

Recent research proves that under certain conditions, quantum annealing computers can run algorithms—including the well-known Shor's algorithm—more quickly than classical computers. In most cases, however, quantum annealing ...

Researchers' novel tool to help develop safer pesticides

The majority of commercial chemicals that enter the market in the United States every year have insufficient health and safety data. For pesticides, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency uses a variety of techniques to ...
