Graphene “nano-origami” creates tiniest microchips yet

“The tiniest microchips yet can be made from graphene and other 2D-materials, using a form of ‘nano-origami’, physicists at the University of Sussex have found. This is the first time any researchers have done this, and it is covered in …

Sussex study enables predicting computational power of early quantum computers

“Quantum physicists at the University of Sussex have created an algorithm that speeds up the rate of calculations in the early quantum computers which are currently being developed. They have created a new way to route the ions – or charged …

How magnetic fields and 3D printers will create the pills of tomorrow

“Doctors could soon be administering an entire course of treatment for life-threatening conditions with a 3D printed capsule controlled by magnetic fields thanks to advances made by University of Sussex researchers. Engineers and pharmaceutical scientists from the University of Sussex …

Calling Princess Leia: How the out-of-this-galaxy Star Wars hologram just became a step closer to reality

“Academics at the University of Sussex have come the closest yet to recreating one of the most iconic of Star Wars technology by developing for the first time holograms that can be seen by the naked eye as well as …

Sculpting light for new technologies

“On a dime-sized structure, researchers at INRS and the University of Sussex have created an optical device that uses artificial intelligence to control the properties of light. Many technologies, including biomedical imaging systems, rely on lasers to produce light that …

Algorithm unlocks smartwatches that learn your every move

“Scientists at the University of Sussex have invented a new algorithm that enables smartwatches to detect and record your every move, without being told beforehand what to look for. Current smartwatches can recognise a limited number of particular activities, including …

First ever blueprint unveiled to construct a large scale quantum computer

“An international team, led by a scientist from the University of Sussex, have today unveiled the first practical blueprint for how to build a quantum computer, the most powerful computer on Earth. This huge leap forward towards creating a universal …

Scientists create ‘floating pixels’ using soundwaves and force fields

“Researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Bristol have used soundwaves to lift many tiny objects at once before spinning and flipping them using electric force fields. The technology – called JOLED - effectively turns tiny, multi-coloured spheres into real-life pixels, which …

Holographic sonic tractor beam lifts and moves objects using soundwaves

“The world’s first sonic tractor beams that can lift and move objects using soundwaves have been built by a team that includes researchers at the University of Sussex. Tractor beams are mysterious rays that can grab and lift objects …
