Surprisingly, low-toxin MRSA strains may be the real killer
The most serious MRSA infections could be those caused by superbugs which produce fewer toxins, as opposed to high toxin strains, according to surprise findings revealed today by scientists from the Department of Biology ...
Improving street safety for cyclists more effective than information campaigns
Concerns that telling new cyclists to protect themselves with helmets and hi-viz might make cycling look more dangerous than it is, and thereby inadvertently put people off cycling rather than get them started, appear to ...
Designing bespoke nanomaterials for energy applications
anomaterials have the potential to play a central role in solving many of today's biggest sustainability issues, whether it's developing more efficient renewable energy technologies, removing pollutants from the air and water, ...
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'.
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.
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 ...
New research to improve solar cells
New research from Professors Saiful Islam and Aron Walsh could lead to more efficient solar cells. The work appears in the leading journal Nature Communications.
'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.
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.
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 ...
