Today Prof. Roy Shenhar from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem gave a very engaging public lecture of Nano-science.
On 24-28 January 2016 Dr Roy Shenhar from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem visits us. The visit is supported by a grant from the British Council withing the Inagural UK-Israel Science Lectureship Scheme.
Why do materials melt? Because they get hot – this normally means that the atoms that make up the material vibrate so energetically that they escape their confined environment and start to move around. This notion of atoms heating up and vibrating more and more gets confused at very short timescales. Using very short intense… Read More ›
Dr Danilo Roccatano was awarded supercomputer time by EPSRC (UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) for two 6 months pilot projects at ARCHER, UK national High Performance Computing facility. The first project required passing ARCHER Driving Test :); the second is a collaboration Dr. Steve Hayward from the University of East Anglia.
