Photons on a chip set new paths for secure communications


Researchers from RMIT University in Melbourne have helped crack the code to ultra-secure telecommunications of the future in an international research project that could also expedite the advent of quantum computing. A team co-led by RMIT MicroNano Research Facility Director Professor David Moss ...


Moving liquid metal marbles


Researchers in Australia have found a new method to induce the controlled movement of liquid metal droplets in aqueous environments, by coating them in nanoparticles to form ‘liquid metal marbles.’ Research shows that coating droplets of liquid metal galinstan with WO3 nanoparticles increases the ...
