Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.
A new dynamical regime where energy remains unexpectedly confined for extremely long times to just a few sites of a lattice has been identified. These findings are universal and apply to systems as diverse as Bose-Einstein condensates in optical lattices and light propagating in arrays of optical fibres with possible applications in quantum technologies and photonics.
Professor of Biophotonics at University of Strathclyde, Gail McConnell, has been named as one of seven new Fellows of the Royal Society of Edinburgh from the University of Strathclyde.
Photonics Professor Allister Ferguson has been named the 2019 Robert E. Hopkins Leadership Award recipient by The Optical Society. He has been honoured for his ‘extraordinary leadership’ creating major international optics and photonics research centres and programmes that support the global optics and photonics community.
The Department of Physics welcomes award-winning physicists, Dr Ceri Brenner and Dr Jess Wade, for the first of a series of “Physics, we need to talk about” events, on Science and Diversity. This will include inspiring research talks, followed by a panel discussion with academics to raise awareness of the importance of equality & diversity efforts in physics, and further across all STEM subjects. (3-4:30pm, JA 3.25)
Physics Alumni Careers Event
Hear from Physics Alumni who work with Coherent, as a Medical Physicist at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, as Head of Projects at Natural Power, studying for a PhD, the owner of CS Guitars and as an Electrical Systems Engineer at Atkins. (1-3pm, JA 5.02)
