The University of Nottingham is a public research university in Nottingham, United Kingdom. It was founded as University College Nottingham in 1881, and was granted a royal charter in 1948. Nottingham's main campus (University Park) with Jubilee Campus and teaching hospital (Queen's Medical Centre) are located within the City of Nottingham, with a number of smaller campuses and sites elsewhere in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Outside the UK, the university has campuses in Semenyih, Malaysia and Ningbo, China. Nottingham is organised into five constituent faculties, within which there are more than 50 schools, departments, institutes and research centres. Nottingham has about 45,500 students and 7,000 staff, and had an income of £656.5 million in 2017/18, of which £120.1 million was from research grants and contracts.

Colossal collisions linked to solar system science

“A new study shows a deep connection between some of the largest, most energetic events in the universe and much smaller, weaker ones powered by our own Sun. The results come from a long observation with NASA’s Chandra X-ray …

Future gravitational wave detector in space could uncover secrets of the Universe

“New research has shown that future gravitational wave detections from space will be capable of finding new fundamental fields and potentially shed new light on unexplained aspects of the Universe. Professor Thomas Sotiriou from the University of Nottingham’s Centre …

New process makes every atom matter for sustainable catalyst production

“Scientists have discovered a new process to break bulk metal into atoms to produce heterogeneous catalysts without any chemical waste, which will lead to new sustainable ways of making and using molecules in the most atom-efficient way. Researchers from the …

Ultrasound at the nanometre scale reveals the nature of force

“Researchers have developed a new method to measure force and atomic bonds at the nanoscale that reveals that the speed of sound depends on the structure it is travelling through. Scientists from the University of Nottingham and Loughborough University used …

Stabiliser residue in inks inhibits conductivity in 3D printed electronics

“Very thin layers of organic stabiliser residue in metal nanoparticle (MNP) inks are behind a loss of conductivity in 3D printed materials and electronic devices, according to the findings of a new study by the University of Nottingham and the …

Quantum collaboration gives new gravity to the mysteries of the Universe

“Scientists have used cutting-edge research in quantum computation and quantum technology to pioneer a radical new approach to determining how our Universe works at its most fundamental level. An international team of experts, led by the University of Nottingham, have …

Hyperchaos possibilities for modelling complex quantum systems

“Physicists have discovered a potentially game changing feature of quantum bit behaviour which would allow scientists to simulate complex quantum systems without the need for enormous computing power. For some time, the development of the next generation of quantum computer …

Salt battery design overcomes ‘bump’ in the road to help electric cars go the extra mile

“Using salt as a key ingredient, Chinese and British researchers have designed a new type of rechargeable battery that could accelerate the shift to greener, electric transport on our roads. Many electric vehicles (EV) are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries …

3D print experts discover how to make tomorrow’s tech using ink-jet printed graphene

“The University of Nottingham has cracked the conundrum of how to use inks to 3D-print novel electronic devices with useful properties, such as an ability to convert light into electricity. The study shows that it is possible to jet inks …

Speeding-up quantum computing using giant atomic ions

“An international team of researchers have found a new way to speed up quantum computing that could pave the way for huge leaps forward in computer processing power. Scientists from the University of Nottingham and University of Stockholm have sped-up …
