Oceanic corals are well known for their beautiful shapes and forms, for their range of colours and for their wondrous role in submarine ecosystems. Now, ultraviolet light reveals a surprising display of colours and  fluorescence in the corals that reside on the deep water reefs of  the Red Sea. The discovery of this new beauty was made by scientists from the University of Southampton, UK, Tel  Aviv University and the Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences  (IUI), in Israel, and...

Density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT are used to show how the number of thiophene rings in π-conjugated systems influence the absorption spectra and non-linear optical properties of dyes.

Stresses, including ultraviolet light, can trigger a crucial molecule to halt DNA to RNA transcription, leading to tissue damage, according to a new study.
