New method for building on an atomic scale
UK scientists have pioneered a new way of manipulating several thousand atoms at a time, paving the way for building nanoscale electronic devices more quickly and easily at room temperature.
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'.
Beetle's antennae finds potential mates
Recent research from a team led by Dr Jonathan Cox shows how certain beetles use their antennae to locate potential mates. This is the first time scientists have studied molecule capture by the antennae of beetles.
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 ...
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 ...
'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 ...
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.
