Hundred-fold enhancement in far-field radiative heat transfer over the blackbody limit | Nature
So when the gap between surfaces is 25nm, you can get much higher radiative heat transfer. But if you are that close, why not go conductive?

[1806.08790] The Physics of baking good Pizza
Lower thermal conductivity of brick in contact with dough, along with indirect reflected IR from the vaulted ceiling of the oven, hit temperature sweet spots for dough and toppings/cheese. Home ovens generally have dough on metal, so too high conductivity burning the crust before the toppings are done. Using a ceramic plate won't help because home ovens don't generally go over 550F, thus drying out the dough before the toppings are done.

Quarks fuse to release energy | Nature
Quark fusion pretty powerful, but needs heavy baryons and goes poof quick so not practical on it's own. But, with a 138MeV bandgap, could this be a used for a quark laser (similar to a nucleon laser)?

Breaking Lorentz reciprocity to overcome the time-bandwidth limit in physics and engineering | Science
Telecomms just got a huge breakthrough. But apparently radar guys in the 40's knew about using non-reciprocal resonators to keep EM from pushing back into waveform generators, but never published?

So they are using a lesser plasma to be a gain medium for a laser, to make a more laser, to make a stronger plasma wakefield, for a particle accelerator. Rather than starting out with a really powerful laser. Implies tabletop accelerator may be easier now.
