How can we make the internet greener? How can physics contribute to national security? These are just two of the questions being answered at Glasgow University's James Watt Nanofabrication Centre. Here they measure their achievements in nanometres - billionths of a metre. Now its director, Prof Douglas Paul, has been awarded the prestigious President's Medal by the Institute of Physics. It's been given to just a handful of scientists, among them the inventor of the world wide web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and the physicist and broadcaster Brian Cox.
A team of researchers at Glasgow University has announced a new technique which could mean hip replacements that last a lifetime. It involves creating a tiny pattern of holes in plastic which persuade the body's own stem cells to turn into bone. This nanopatterning was undertaken at the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.
