Lasers could heat materials to temperatures hotter than the centre of the Sun - 10 million Celsius - in only 20 femtoseconds, according to new research from Imperial College London.

A novel microwave-assisted dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction technique combined with the solidification of a floating organic droplet and GFAAS was used for the extraction and determination of lead ions in lipsticks and hair dyes made in different countries.
