Swansea University physicists, as leading members of the ALPHA collaboration at CERN, have demonstrated laser cooling of […]

A new study led by Swansea University reveals that only 10% of the forest that is left on two Indonesian islands remains fire-resistant. The researchers warn that protecting this is crucial for preventing catastrophic fire. Tropical deforestation exacerbates recurrent peatland fire events in this region. These release globally significant greenhouse […]
