The research groups of the Thomas Young Centre frequently publish important advances that are of interest to a wide multi-disciplinary audience. The items on our "Science Highlights" pages are short summaries of some of these advances, usually based on publications in high-impact journals.

Flammable Ice May 2020.jpg

Using atomistic molecular dynamics simulations (MD), researchers have shown that microporous materials can promote the formation of methane hydrate ('flammable ice') in less demanding conditions than those in which they are typically found in the environment.

Generating colour 3D images from planar metasurface.jpg

As part of an international collaboration between King’s College London and the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, researchers have developed a novel way of generating 2D images with shading effects of 3D objects using a reflective metasurface performing through the entire visible spectral range.
