1 A liquid of quarks and gluons Jasmine Brewer covers recent progress on studying the properties of the quark-gluon plasma, and describe how we can capitalize on lessons learned from high-energy physics to provide new insights on this novel material. Jasmine Brewer 15 Mar 2024
2 How the weird and wonderful properties of magnetised laser plasmas could ignite fusion-energy research Archie Bott explains how a promising scheme for fusion relies on a novel feature of hot laser-plasmas: introducing a magnetic field of the correct strength alters the plasma’s fundamental properties in a highly counterintuitive yet beneficial manner.
