DNP and ENDOR probes meet in the middle. Probing and using the electron nucleus interactions from both the nuclei's and electron's point of view.
The Rosette Nebula, a region of star formation with molecular gas and dust, lit up by its young stars. The image is part the first detailed map of the galactic plane, in which Warwick astronomers are involved.
Quantum mechanics rests on the wave-particle duality. With such graphs of multifractal exponents we study how quantum interference can turn a metal (top sheet) into an insulator (bottom sheet) - [Prof. Roemer]
According to general relativity spinning objects twist the spacetime around them. This could be an explanation for CP violation - [Dr Hadley] more...
Material characterisation is at the forefront of a wide range modern technological innovations and requires the brightest x-ray beams and complex sample environments such as those provided by the XMaS beamline located at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility - [Dr Hase]
V838 Mon, a star located about 20,000 light years from Earth, captured by Hubble Space Telescope. It underwent a large outburst a few years ago which may have been caused by the merger of two stars - [Prof Marsh]
Hot, one million K plasma loops in the corona of the Sun, observed with the Solar Dynamics Observatory - [Prof Nakariakov]
Probing nanoscale devices on a strained silicon wafer - [Prof Leadley]
Hubble Space Telescope image of the "Cat's eye nebula", which is a star in one of its final stages. At this point it throws off most of its mass and leaves behind an object called a white dwarf, visible as the white point at the centre of the nebula. We do lots of work here on white dwarfs.
Optically detected EPR. Measuring the spin state of electrons in diamond using light and manipulating the spin states using microwaves - [Dr Kemp]
A team of researchers from the Astrophysics Group led by Tom Louden discovered winds of over 2km per second flowing around a planet outside of the Earth’s solar system.
“This is the first ever weather map from outside of our solar system. Whilst we have previously known of wind on exoplanets, we have never before been able to directly measure and map a weather system.”
Coming hot on the heels of the Nobel Prize award for the discovery of neutrino oscialltions, the Breakthrough Prize for Fundamental Physics 2016 has recognized five collaborations studying neutrino oscillations. One of them, the T2K neutrino oscillation project, has had major contributions from the Warwick T2K group headed by Dr Gary Barker and Dr Steve Boyd.
On November 8, representatives from the five experiments accepted the award in a televised event in the USA...
