New control over topological insulator

24-Mar-2014

An international team of scientists investigating the electronic properties of ultra-thin films of new materials – topological insulators (TIs) - has demonstrated a new method to tune their unique properties using strain. Topological insulators are new materials with surfaces that host a new ...

From surgery to laboratory and back again

13-Feb-2014

A University of York scientist's experience in seeing his partner in hospital recovering from a double lung transplant prompted him to design and synthesise new chemical agents that could revolutionise post-operative patient care. Professor Dave Smith, of the University's Department of Chemistry, ...

New approach improves efficiency of solar cells

29-Oct-2013

An international team of scientists, led by researchers from the Universities of York and St Andrews, has developed a new method to increase the efficiency of solar cells. The new approach achieves highly efficient broad-band light trapping in thin films, with more light captured in the film in ...

Scientists prove Heisenberg's intuition correct

21-Oct-2013

An international team of scientists has provided proof of a key feature of quantum physics – Heisenberg's error-disturbance relation - more than 80 years after it was first suggested. One of the basic concepts in the world of quantum mechanics is that it is impossible to observe physical objects ...

Closer to reality

17-Jun-2013

Heterogeneous gas-solid catalyst reactions occur on the atomic scale and there is increasing evidence single atoms and very small clusters can act as primary active sites in chemical reactions. When studying the reactions taking place at the catalyst surface, scientists usually have to look into ...

Sieving silica sieves from biomass ash

24-Apr-2013

Burning biomass for heat and power could produce as much as 2000 TWh by 2020, which would produce 4–15.6 million tonnes of waste ash, per year, in Europe alone. To address the problem of what to do with all this waste, scientists in the UK have developed a method to convert this ash into ...
