Pocket blood tests

Bringing together advances in physics, engineering and biology, Stuart Higgins from Imperial College London has invented a “one-size-fits-all” solution to diagnosing health conditions, based on technology originally developed for bendy displays.

Smaller, better, smarter

How do you study the incredibly small? Nanomaterials are crucial for ‘nanodevices’, which have impacts in food production, medicine and controlling pollution.

Muon towards the Big Bang

Most experiments use beams of stable particles, like the Large Hadron Collider, but is there another way to reach the phenomenal energies that occurred near to the Big Bang?

Birth of planets

In swirls of gas and dust, planets are being born. So-called protoplanetary discs whirl around a central star, with the potential to one day form into something similar to our solar system.

Immersed in sound waves

Join us for this unique immersive music performance, developed by physicists and musicians from the University of Warwick and performed by the Coull Quartet.

What is time?

How we, humans, perceive time is very different to how physics has described it.

CERN for the senses

In 2015, award-winning artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt, who together form the artist duo Semiconductor, participated in a research residency at CERN.
