Climate change means we can't keep living in glass houses
How do we go about designing buildings today for tomorrow's weather? As the world warms and extreme weather becomes more common, sustainable architecture is likely to mean one major casualty: glass.
Head and body lice read DNA differently
What makes head lice different from body lice had scientists scratching their heads as previous genetic studies failed to find any substantial differences between the two types of lice.
'Molecular sponge' advancement in storing hydrogen
Researchers at our University have discovered that hydrogen absorbed in specialised carbon nanomaterials can achieve extraordinary storage densities at moderate temperatures and pressures.
New spin on 'silicon valleytronics' could revolutionise future technologies
Latest research from scientists from our Department of Physics into cutting-edge 'spin physics' could herald the arrival of a revolutionary new technology – 'valleytronics'.
Research clarifies the physics of water repelling surfaces
Researchers have gained valuable insights into the behaviour of water on strongly hydrophobic (water-repelling) surfaces. Understanding this behaviour should help scientists develop new types of surfaces with applications ...
Why shaking hands matters (even when it's with a robot)
There's new evidence that shaking hands really does matter when it comes to striking the best deal in negotiations.
Leidenfrost thermostat uses levitating water droplets to keep cool
The Leidenfrost effect is a strange phenomenon that allows water droplets to levitate and even climb uphill. Now physicists at the University of Bath have harnessed this quirk of physics to create a thermostat with no moving ...
How Latin America has blazed a trail by tackling inequality
A recent OECD report has shown that income inequality has increased in the majority of OECD countries – and in some, at historic speed.
Parental engagement in children's learning needs to move beyond school
Standards in education are being held back by a lack of meaningful parental engagement in children's learning, according to the authors of a study from our researchers, highlighted in the Welsh Government's Toolkit for Parental ...
Organic semiconductors will create cheaper, greener devices
Research into organic semiconductors could lead to more efficient LED TVs and flexible solar cells that are cheaper to make and take less energy to produce according to researchers at the University of Bath.
