A trans-Atlantic research project is investigating the properties of ultra-thin films of new materials in order to bring quantum computing one step closer to reality.
Researchers have developed a new technique for creating high-quality semiconductor thin films at the atomic scale.
Scientists from Southampton University of have developed a device which records the brain activity of worms to help test the effects of drugs.
Scientists have unveiled a new method for arranging metal nanoparticles in geometric patterns that can act as optical processors, a development that could help lead to optical computers.
Scientists are combining biological tissue with synthetic materials to create a new class of “cyborgans”.

As sensors become cheaper and more ubiquitous, do we need to be more careful about our privacy — or do we need to redefine what we mean by ‘private’?
The Engineer’s budding Grumpy Old Man comes to the defence of the younger generation, unfairly criticised for lacking in skills they shouldn’t be expected to have at the start of their careers
The Engineer caught up for a brief chat with the Rolls-Royce director of engineering and technology Colin Smith to discuss Bloodhound, British manufacturing and how we can encourage more young people to commit to the profession.
CCS technology is crucial if we are to meet our emissions targets, but there are considerable technical hurdles ahead, says Frank Ellingsen
