Synthesis and Characterisation of p-type and n-type CulnS2 Nanocrystals

by Tobias Whinney In a world where efficiency in energy usage has never been more paramount, nor as well scrutinised on how it impacts our precious planet, new technologies are being discovered at an unprecedented rate. It is essential for developing technology not only to be increasingly energy efficient with exponential capabilities but be safeRead More about Synthesis and Characterisation of p-type and n-type CulnS2 Nanocrystals.


UROS 2019 Project: Mediatization Of The Nation – The Role of Technology in Nationhood at Prague Quadrennial 2019

by Thomas Cansdale & Joseph Carter (UROS 2019 People’s Choice Runner-Up) Over the summer period UROS has allowed us to further research made throughout the final semesters of our undergraduate degree. This has given us the experience needed to confidently enter the University of Lincoln’s MA Theatre programme with a strong sense of what comprisesRead More about UROS 2019 Project: Mediatization Of The Nation – The Role of Technology in Nationhood at Prague Quadrennial 2019.


UROS 2019 Project: Microplastic contamination from fibres in the River Witham

by Sophie Leggott (UROS 2019 People’s Choice Winner) How would you feel if your home became a dumping ground for plastic waste? With plastic pollution of Oceans on the rise the impacts on the marine environment are becoming more severe. Where does all the plastic come from? Plastics of any size are entering the OceansRead More about UROS 2019 Project: Microplastic contamination from fibres in the River Witham.


UROS 2019 Project: Avatars for Mobility Impaired Players in Games and Virtual Reality

by Samuel Stubbings Existing research has studied the design of movement-based games to support mobility impaired players. This has focused on design elements, such as controls and interface. Thus far, little work has considered the effects of player representation, nor player’s preferences on how they are represented in games. This is particularly relevant to virtualRead More about UROS 2019 Project: Avatars for Mobility Impaired Players in Games and Virtual Reality.


UROS 2019 Project: Synthesis of Bicyclic Lactams from simple Caprolactams to contribute to targeting Antibiotic resistance

by Saffah Huseeba Danial When was the last time you were prescribed a course of antibiotics? Did you complete it as directed, without missing a dose? Did you know that antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest threats we face today (Antibiotic Guardian, 2014)? Antibiotics are essential in treating many bacterial infections in both humansRead More about UROS 2019 Project: Synthesis of Bicyclic Lactams from simple Caprolactams to contribute to targeting Antibiotic resistance.


UROS 2019 Project: Vaping misuse of ‘Liquid X’ – a vibrational spectroscopy study

by Nancy Whittaker Over the past few years, there has been a huge growth in vaping, i.e. the use of electronic cigarettes for the consumption of both nicotine-containing and nicotine-free liquids (“e-liquids”) that are vapourised to be inhaled. Public Health England has deemed it as a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking based on the lackRead More about UROS 2019 Project: Vaping misuse of ‘Liquid X’ – a vibrational spectroscopy study.


UROS 2019 Project: Into the Groove – Using environmentally friendly products to clean the surface of vinyl audio records

by Liam Robinson The aim of this study was to identify a safe and effective cleaning method to remove surface dirt from vinyl audio records using environmentally friendly products. Sound archives and private collections around the world contain large numbers of vinyl records. Maintaining a clean surface is important for effective playback and reduces theRead More about UROS 2019 Project: Into the Groove – Using environmentally friendly products to clean the surface of vinyl audio records.


UROS 2019 Project: A Human-Robot Interaction Javascript Library – Ros Web Components

by Laurence Elliott The problem of developing GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) for robots is one that typically requires knowledge of robotics programming and web or desktop GUI development to communicate the user’s inputs to a robot, and to communicate a robot’s state and outputs to the user. This project introduces a FOSS (Free and Open-SourceRead More about UROS 2019 Project: A Human-Robot Interaction Javascript Library – Ros Web Components.


UROS 2019 Project: Investigating the Effects of Mucins on Cancer Metastasis

by Jin Ke Michele Pan Cancer is often imagined as a monstrous disease that spreads and metastasises in healthy tissue, destroys biological processes and wrecks havoc in the organism that is affected. But recent discoveries have shown that the process of metastasis is highly regulated and there is a lot of “preparation” happening on aRead More about UROS 2019 Project: Investigating the Effects of Mucins on Cancer Metastasis.


UROS 2019 Project: Determination of the 3D structure of the TE1-TE2 thioesterase enzyme

by Jamie Burford-Evans Antibiotic resistance is a global concern and if not challenged, could see human populations without the availability of effective antibiotics. This is why constant research surrounding antimicrobial compounds is required to ensure a sustainable supply of effective antibiotics, ensuring life expectancy and quality of life can be safeguarded for generations to come.Read More about UROS 2019 Project: Determination of the 3D structure of the TE1-TE2 thioesterase enzyme.
