MASERs allow signals at microwave frequencies (0.1-100 GHz) to be amplified with unparalleled low electronic noise, allowing applications both as a receiver for deep-space communication, radar and medical imaging, and as a frequency standard for atomic clocks.
A novel approach to light-sheet fluorescence microscopy that uses a folded optical configuration to achieve both sample scanning and dual-view image acquisition.
A novel gene therapy for Huntington’s Disease that leverage zinc finger protein technology.
A new method to change the state of individual magnetic nanoparticles within a dense array using a low cost, low-power laser for data storage technology and potential application in neuromorphic ‘in-memory’ computing.
The invention A suite of novel zinc carbonic anhydrase (CA) mimics have been developed, based upon the structure of the previously published mimic ZnL1S. By changing the atoms within the ligand structure i.e. from nitrogens to sulfurs, and with various arrangements of the same or different ligands around the central metal, and thereby mimicking more […]
The invention A functional catalytic material that selectively oxidises organic molecules utilising molecular oxygen from the air is presented. The materials allow for heterogeneous reactions of molecules of interest within a liquid or in the gas phase with high yield and selectivity under mild conditions. Selective oxidation catalyst: Oxidation of bulk chemicals on a large […]
A novel nacre-like fibre coating and application method that can improve the mechanical qualities of high performance composites, enabling lightweight nanocomposites with high strength, stiffness and toughness.
A technique to enhance light extraction efficiency in light emitting diodes
A novel, high efficiency low pressure ratio turbine developed by engineers at Imperial College London to capture a significant portion of residual exhaust energy with negligible effect on engine base performance.
Novel chemical additives that reduce the fluid film friction of lubricated mechanical components under elastohydrodynamic conditions
