A University of Glasgow-led project which aims to develop quantum-powered health sensors for home use in order to spot the earliest signs of disease is being backed by £5.5m in new funding. The cash boost is part of a £32m funding package announced today by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation.
Researchers have used a combination of AI and quantum mechanics to reveal how hydrogen gradually turns into a metal in giant planets. The existence of metallic hydrogen was theorised a century ago, but what we haven't known is how this process occurs Bingqing Cheng Dense metallic hydrogen - a phase of hydrogen which behaves like an electrical conductor - makes up the interior of giant planets, but it is difficult to study and poorly understood.
Astrophysicists investigating gravitational-wave data from the far reaches of the Universe believe they may have found an explanation for a curious signal detected from the collision of two black holes.
