Today our undergraduate Physics students presented their summer research results at the University’s UROS poster conference (UROS is Undergraduate Research Opportunities Scheme). Physics team was one of the largest in the university while we are the smallest school so far: 3 posters were on Experimental Physics and 3 – on…
PhD Student Javier Díaz visited Swansea to attend the Physical Aspects of Polymer Science conference, organised by the Institute of Physics, which took place from the 13th to 15th of September in Swansea, Wales. Scientists from all around the world spoke about a large range of subjects involving polymer physics, including theory, experiments and simulations…. Read More ›
In 1948 Hendrik Casimir calculated that two metallic plates in a vacuum (absence of particle of any kind…except for the plates themselves that is) would be subject to an attractive force owing to the quantum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field they are embedded in. This Force from nothing has lead to many heated speculations on the… Read More ›
During June 2017, PhD student Javier Díaz spend 11 days in Barcelona collaborating with Prof. Ignacio Pagonabarraga who is a Professor in Condensed Matter Physics in the Department of Fundamental Physics at the University of Barcelona. This stay was funded by the santander posgraduate research project fund. Throughout that time Javier was able to discuss with… Read More ›
Sergey Chulkov and Matt Watkins helped to deliver the 2017 CP2K user tutorial on ‘Advanced ab-initio MD methods’ at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. CP2K is a multinational open-source code for simulating material properties at an atomistic scale.
