Bath University triumph in UAS Challenge 2017

Bath University triumph in UAS Challenge 2017
The third annual Institution of Mechanical Engineers’ Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Challenge has been won by engineering students from Bath University. The event encourages teams of undergraduates to undertake a full design and build cycle of a UAS, also known as a drone, with specific mission objectives – before competing in a final ‘fly-off’ and judging which took place on 19-20th June.

Faster recharging batteries made possible

Faster recharging batteries made possible
Faster recharging lithium batteries could be developed after scientists figured out why adding charged metal atoms to tunnel structures within batteries improves their performance. Rechargeable lithium batteries have helped power the 'portable revolution' in mobile phones, laptops and tablet computers, and generations of lithium batteries are being developed for electric vehicles and to store energy from wind and solar power.

Single photons can be reliably imprinted with quantum information

Single photons can be reliably imprinted with quantum information
Physicists at the University of Bath have developed a technique to more reliably produce single photons that can be imprinted with quantum information. The invention will benefit a variety of processes which rely on photons to carry quantum information, such as quantum computing, secure quantum communication and precision measurements at low light levels. Photons, particles of light, can be imprinted with information to be used for things like carrying out calculations and transmitting messages.

Multiphoton microscope speeds up disease diagnosis

Multiphoton microscope speeds up disease diagnosis
Two optical devices could reduce the need to take tissue samples during medical examinations and operations and to then send them for testing – potentially speeding up diagnosis and treatment and cutting healthcare costs. One is a lightweight handheld microscope designed to examine external tissue or tissue exposed during surgery. One example of its use could be to help surgeons compare normal and cancerous cells (during an operation).

Robotic drones to ‘print’ emergency shelters

Robotic drones to ‘print’ emergency shelters
A new research project aims to develop the world's first flying robots capable of autonomously assessing and manufacturing building structures to help areas suffering from natural disasters. The four year collaborative research project entitled ‘Aerial Additive Building Manufacturing: Distributed Unmanned Aerial Systems for in-situ manufacturing of the built environment’ involves researchers from the University of Bath, Imperial College and University College London.
