Astronomers have found evidence that the first exoplanet that was identified transiting its star could have migrated to a close orbit with its star from its original birthplace further away.
Search for strange Skyrmion phenomenon fails but finds even stranger magnetic beaded necklace with computer memory storage possibilities
Physicists on the hunt for a rarely seen magnetic spin texture have discovered another object that bears its hallmarks, hidden in the structure of ultra-thin magnetic films, that they have called an incommensurate spin crystal. A team from the University of Warwick reports the findings in the journal Nature Communications, which could offer new possibilities for technologies such as computer memory and storage.
Algorithms inspired by social networks reveal lifecycle of substorms, a key element of space weather
Space weather often manifests as substorms, where a beautiful auroral display such as the Northern Lights is accompanied by an electrical current in space which has effects at earth that can interfere with and damage power distribution and electrical systems. Now, the lifecycle of these auroral substorms has been revealed using social media-inspired mathematical tools to analyse space weather observations across the Earth’s surface.
University of Warwick scientists set to tackle big data challenge of next-generation physics experiments
Physicists at the University of Warwick are among scientists developing vital software to exploit the large data sets collected by the next-generation experiments in high energy physics (HEP), predominantly those at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Researchers have detailed a mechanism in the distinctive corona of Covid-19 that could help scientists to rapidly find new treatments for the virus, and quickly test whether existing treatments are likely to work with mutated versions as they develop.
