Older adults who become physical may reduce their risk of heart disease

Cardiovascular disease risk is higher in older adults. Thus, it is essential for them to understand how inactivity might influence risk in this age group. Physical...
Chip containing all the optical components used to generate quantum-based random numbers at high speed. Here the chip, at the bottom-right corner of the picture, is placed next to a penny coin for comparison. Francesco Raffaelli, University of Bristol

New silicon chip generates quantum-random-numbers for information security

An international team of scientists at the University of Bristol has designed a silicon chip that could generate quantum-random-numbers at gigabit per second speeds. It...

A suspension of bacteria confined between two plates behaves as a negative viscosity fluid: pulling the top solid plate to the left make it move to the right. A. Loisy, J. Eggers, and T. Liverpool, University of Bristol

Swimming bacteria work together to go with the flow

Viscosity is a fluid's resistance from the flow. For instance, oil does not flow as quick as water when spilled out on the grounds...
