    Beryllium has applications in various environments which will (or already do) expose it to radiation which will result in the accumulation of helium gas and cause the displacement of atoms from their crystal lattice sites. Beryllium will be the material facing the plasm...

    When solid materials are loaded above a critical level, they may change their shape permanently: they undergo plastic deformation. Consider, for example, a cylinder which we compress by pushing from top to bottom. If the load is small, the cylinder first deforms elastic...

    At any one time cloud coverage over the earth is around 70% on average and to some extent they may warm or cool the planet. I think everybody in the UK is familiar with clouds blocking the suns light and making it cooler, thick liquid clouds generally do this by reflect...

    Phase-change materials, such as GeSbTe or AgInSbTe alloys, exhibit some remarkable properties; they can be amorphized in femtoseconds and crystallised in picoseconds, yet can remain stable against spontaneous changes of state for many years. They show hugely contrasting...

    A large proportion of phenomena that appear in geometry and theoretical physics can be phrased in terms of an energy (or action) function. The critical points correspond to states of equilibrium and are described by systems of non-linear partial differential equations (...
