About this community

The School of the Physical Sciences is one of six Schools making up the academic work of the University. It covers Astronomy, Chemistry, Earth Science, Geography, Materials Science and Metallurgy, Mathematics and Physics. The School’s aim is to contribute to our understanding of the physical world through excellence in observational, theoretical and experimental science and to extend quantitative, qualitative and combined methodologies to address problems in the fields of biology, technology, medicine, social science and the humanities. In pursuit of these goals, the School coordinates objectives in research, teaching, and infrastructure.

  • Towards Radiative Transitions in Charmonium 

    O'Hara, Cian; Ryan, Sinéad M; Moir, Graham; Thomas, Christopher E
    We present preliminary calculations towards radiative transitions in charmonium using anisotropic $\textit{Nf}$=2+1 dynamical ensembles generated by the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration. With the use of newer technologies we ...
  • Autophoretic flow on a torus 

    Schmieding, LC; Lauga, E; Montenegro-Johnson, TD (American Physical Society, 2017-03-02)
    Phoretic swimmers provide new avenues to study nonequilibrium statistical physics and are also hailed as a promising technology for bioengineering at the cellular scale. Exact solutions for the locomotion of such swimmers ...
  • Dataset supporting "Plasmonic response and SERS modulation in electrochemical applied potentials" 

    Di Martino, G; Turek, VA; Tserkezis, C; Lombardi, A; Kuhn, A; Baumberg, JJ
  • Generating synthetic fjord bathymetry for coastal Greenland 

    Williams, CN; Cornford, SL; Jordan, TM; Dowdeswell, JA; Siegert, MJ; Clark, CD; Swift, DA et al. (Copernicus Publications, 2017-02-01)
    Bed topography is a critical boundary for the numerical modelling of ice sheets and ice-ocean interactions. A persistent issue with existing topography products for the bed of the Greenland Ice Sheet and surrounding sea ...
