Date: Wednesday 27th of March, 13:30. Location: INB3305 (Isaac Newton Building). ‘Autonomous mechanisms inspired by biology’ by Francis Woodhouse, Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, UK. Abstract: Unlike the air around us, biological systems are not in equilibrium: cells consume chemical energy to keep growing and moving, forming a clear arrow of time. The recent creation… Read More ›
Date: Wednesday 6th of March, 14:00. Location: INB3305 (Isaac Newton Building). ‘Listening to the electrical noise for nanofluidic sensing’ by Adelchi Jacques Asta, Laboratoire PHENIX, Department of Chemistry, Sorbonne University, Paris, France. Abstract: Moving from microfluidics, which is now a well-established field, to nanofluidics requires the development of computational tools. Using the Lattice Boltzmann Electrokinetics… Read More ›
Xiaohu Guo from Daresbury Laboratory, UK, Fabien Paillusson, Marco Pinna and Andrei Zvelindovsky from the University of Lincoln, UK and Ryoichi Yamamoto from the University of Kyoto in Japan have secured a grant from CECAM (Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire) for organizing a CECAM Workshop “Emerging behaviour in active matter: computational challenges” in 2019.
Date: Monday 5th of November 2018, 14:00. Location: INB3305 (Isaac Newton Building). ‘Active lubrication with ionic liquids’ by Fernando Bresme, Professor of Chemical Physics, Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London, London, UK. Abstract: Ionic liquids have been the subject of intense investigation in the last years. They feature high thermal stability and ionic conductivity, as… Read More ›
From 15 October till 9 of November 2018 Professor Dick Bedeaux from the Norwegian University of Science and technology (NTNU) is visiting our Centre for Computational Physics as one of first two International Visiting Fellows supported by the Lincoln Institute for Advanced Studies. Professor Bedeaux is a world leader in the field of non-equilibrium thermodynamics.
Date: Wednesday 10th of October 2018, 14:00. Location: INB3305 (Isaac Newton Building). ‘Quasicrystal formation in soft matter’ by Andrew J. Archer, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Loughborough University, Loughborough, UK. Abstract: In the early eighties quasicrystals (QCs) were first observed by Shechtman in metallic alloys, leading to the award to him of a Nobel prize in… Read More ›
