WMG and Senergy Innovations Ltd launch graphene enabled all polymer solar thermal cell

Thanks to funding from BEIS (Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) a team of researchers led by Professor Tony McNally, from WMG, at the University of Warwick in partnership with Senergy Innovations Ltd have developed the first nanomaterial enabled all polymer solar thermal cell. The thermal properties of the polymers employed are modified such that heat from sunlight can be transferred with high efficiency to heat water in a cheap and sustainable manner.

Ventilators, visors, volunteers and testing - More than a dozen more ways Warwick staff & students are helping respond to the pandemic

I promised to come back to you soon to tell you about even more about the work of many more of our dedicated staff and students I these challenging times and today I am keeping that promise. Here many more ways in which our students and staff are helping from ventilators, visors, and volunteering to helping produce more COVID-19 testing ,and providing online computing experiments for primary school children now learning at home.

In many cases we can’t name the individuals as we want to leave them in peace to get on with their work but where we can they are named below.

Once again I want to give my personal thanks to each and every one of them – they are all inspiring people that are helping us all in these difficult times.”

High-resolution scanning helps secure guilty verdict against child’s mother

Researchers from WMG at The University of Warwick, have used a high resolution X-ray (micro-CT) scanner, a novel 3D imaging technology more commonly employed in industry and materials research, to scan 9 week old Teri-Rae’s rib cage. The images were then used to support a bone specialists expert testimony, and securing a guilty verdict for the child’s mother
