Dr Joshua Berryman from the Physics and Materials Science Research Unit of the University of Luxembourg visited us on 18 January 2017. He gave a seminar on ‘The early crystal nucleation process in hard spheres shows synchronised ordering and densification’. It attracted another visitor, Dr Richard Graham from the University of Nottingham, who is also… Read More ›
Professor Dick Bedeaux from the Department of Chemistry at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway, is visiting us on 6-11 December 2016. He gave a seminar on “Curvature dependence of the heat and mass transfer resistances of the surface of nano bubbles and droplets”.
Matt Watkins visited Iain Bethune at the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC, the administrators of the national supercomputer, ARCHER). We recorded a webinar tutorial focusing on the recent work that Matt and Sergey Chulkov have carried out on methods to calculate excited states of molecules and crystals in the CP2K code (funded by an eCSE… Read More ›
Matt Watkins visited the group of Keith McKenna, in the Department of Physics at University of York, and gave a snappily titled seminar “Using Scanning Probe Microscopes and Computational Spectroscopy to ‘see’ Polarons on TiO2 and reveal 3D Solvation Structures on CaF2“. Was York the previous most recently founded physics department in the UK?
Matt Watkins recently published a combined experimental / computational study examining polarons near the surface of titanium dioxide in Physical Review Letters. A novel surface preparation technique, involving nearly 100 sputter/anneal cycles allowed Scanning Tunneling Microscopy measurements of the polarons at temperatures as low as 4K. At 4K the polarons were frozen in location, in… Read More ›
In collaboration with Durham university, a scholar of theoretical physics from the University of Lincoln has published new findings about the surprising behaviour of exotic phases forming in liquids in Physical Review Letters – the world’s premier physics letter journal. Dr Fabien Paillusson, Lecturer in the School of Mathematics & Physics, specialises in theoretical and computational modelling,… Read More ›
