Light captured alongside a gravitational wave for the first time ever

University of Bath astrophysicists have been closely involved in the first ever combined detection of both light and gravitational waves from the merging of two neutron stars, a cataclysmic cosmic event.

Lung probe to cut antibiotic overuse in ICU

A new probe that rapidly spots lung infections could help prevent unnecessary use of antibiotics

Nanoscopic golden springs could unravel twisted molecules

University of Bath scientists have used gold spring-shaped coils 5,000 times thinner than human hairs and powerful lasers to enable the detection of twisted molecules, and the applications could improve pharmaceutical design, telecommunications and nanorobotics.

Where is the Dark Matter in distant galaxies?

New observations of galaxies forming 10 billion years ago show they are dominated by 'normal' matter, with so-called 'dark matter' present in much smaller quantities than expected.

Distant galaxies are dominated by gas and stars - where is the Dark Matter?

New observations of galaxies forming 10 billion years ago show they are dominated by “normal” matter, with so-called “dark matter” present in much smaller quantities than expected.

€5m for smart pacemaker technology

New international research consortium led by Bath to develop pacemakers that adapt to the patient’s body

Major €5M project to improve heart disease treatment with smart pacemaker technology

Creating a new generation of advanced pacemakers which adapt to the demands of a patient’s body is the goal of a new €5M international research consortium led by the University of Bath.

More reliable way to produce single photons
