Dr Kaye Morgan hopes that the X-ray technique she’s working on will allow her to take snapshots of the airways and air sacs in the lungs in real-time. This will help doctors and researchers detect problems earlier, and to see if their therapies are working.
New research involving a Monash University astronomer has found the first confirmed example of a double-star solar system that has flipped its surrounding disc to a position that leaps over the orbital plane of those stars.
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about topological insulators – new materials that conduct electricity only on their edges, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago.
Monash University researchers have been recognised for their success in the 2018 list of Highly Cited (HiCi) researchers released today by Clarivate Analytics, with 22 Monash academics featuring in the list. The HiCi list recognises the world’s leading researchers in 22 fields across sciences and the social sciences, who place in the top one per cent of the most highly cited researchers in their field consistently over a ten-year period.
