Members of the QMUL Particle Physics Research Centre (PPRC) involved in the ATLAS experiment and the GridPP computing network are ready for the new operational phase of the LHC, as CERN announces the first successful circulation of proton beams after a two years maintenance stop.
The Particle Physics Research Centre (PPRC) in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary, University of London has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work within the Hyper-Kamiokande group on the Hyper-Kamiokande experiment. It is expected that the Postdoctoral Research Associate may also contribute to the current Super-Kamiokande experiment.
Electron and hole spins can be confined in a variety of semiconductor nanostructures, including quantum dots, nanowires or monolayers. These spins can have long coherence times and can be addressed using ultra-fast optical techniques.
Catch the eclipse of the century from our Observatory
In case you hadn't heard, there'll be a solar eclipse this Friday 20th March between 08:25-10:40 the likes of which won't be seen in the UK again until 2090. We'll be taking advantage of the solar telescope in our observatory by streaming this monumental event live from London.
As part of the Queen Mary University of London and Peking University joint research project on Molecular Magnetism, we will be holding a 1-day workshop to disseminate key results of the project, and open up a wider debate in the UK and Chinese scientific communities on open problems in molecular magnetism.
On the 27th February, the cosmology group in the Astronomy Unit hosted the UK Cosmology Meeting. This is a triannual informal meeting of the UK theoretical cosmology community and features short talks from young and experienced researchers alike. The meeting was a huge success with roughly 60 cosmologists attending from as far away as Edinburgh.
