Profile
The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451 and has since had many notable scholars including Kelvin, Watt, Rankine, Stirling, Black and Kerr. The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre is a pseudo-industrial cleanroom run by 19 technicians undertaking nanofabrication research and small scale production. The centre has sub-5 nm electron beam lithography capability and holds many world records for fabricating small and high-performance devices. Over 250 companies in 28 countries have used the centre in the last 5 years for the delivery of micro/nanofabrication processes to device demonstrators. Further details at: http://www.jwnc.gla.ac.uk/

Flexible Sensors Slide Into the Future with Electronic Printing

A new method of 'sliding' delicate high-performance electronics onto flexible surfaces could enable future developments in electronics, scientists say. Engineers claim they have found a way to solve one of the key problems of contact printing - a method of planting electronics onto bendable plastic surfaces to create flexible electronic circuits and devices.

Self-Driving Laboratories: A Reality Waiting to Happen

Imagine a situation where, given a request, a lab automatically chooses what experiments to do, robotically carries this out, tracks the reaction with integrated sensors, acquires and analyzes the results, and then decides what experiment to do next. This seems like science-fiction, but certain truths may be closer than you think.

Synthetic 'brainy skin' with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

A robotic hand covered in 'brainy skin' that mimics the human sense of touch is being developed by scientists. University of Glasgow's Professor Ravinder Dahiya has plans to develop ultra-flexible, synthetic Brainy Skin that 'thinks for itself'. The super-flexible, hypersensitive skin may one day be used to make more responsive prosthetics for amputees, or to build robots with a sense of touch.
