Organised chaos: The key to next-generation solar technology
Researchers including at University of Melbourne have resolved a fundamental challenge in next-generation perovskite solar cells, bringing widespread use closer
Where have all the stars gone?
We see far fewer stars now than our ancestors or rural friends, now a citizen science initiative, including University of Melbourne, is mapping light pollution.
A very, very brief history of time
From tracking the heavens to formulating relativity and entropy, understanding time has been a major human endeavour, says a University of Melbourne expert
What happens to wildlife in a city that never sleeps?
Lights have brightened our nights and urban wildlife is having to adapt; University of Melbourne research explores our light's impact on nocturnal urban animals
The exciting future of light energy
The University of Melbourne is leading the Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science - which could potentially change how we meet the world's future energy needs
When good animals make bad decisions
Human impact on the environment is tricking animals into ecological traps, where attractive habitats hide a big risk as University of Melbourne research finds.
How energy is hidden in colours
There is a reason roses are red, and we can use this knowledge to create super-efficient, flexible and printable solar panels to power a renewable future
