We study exploding stars, growing galaxies and feeding black holes in an expanding Universe.
Department of Physics research
We have a thriving research programme, encompassing physics from the nanoscales to the most energetic processes in the Universe.
We research how quantum mechanical and thermodynamic properties of molecules, nanostructures, multilayers and glassy materials can be modified.
We carry out world-leading research in the science and technology of light.
We study how components of complex systems interact with each other, and how this leads to unusual behaviour and novel applications.
Over half a million pounds of investment has been secured by Ceryx Medical as they develop the world’s first curative therapy for heart failure.
Dr Philippe Blondel talks about partnering with Seiche to monitor seismic prospection, and using acoustic tomography to help protect marine life.
Scientists have created a non-invasive, adhesive patch, which promises the measurement of glucose levels through the skin without a finger-prick blood test.
Endoscopic devices built to test new coronavirus treatments will probably be ready by August, thanks to cutting-edge research at the University of Bath
New research involving Bath physicists could lead to the design of new materials to help improve the performance of perovskite solar cells (PSCs).
For the first time, labs around the world can 3D print their own precision microscopes, thanks to an open-source design created at Bath.
