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.
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.
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]
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]
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]
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]
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...

Warwick Physics has risen to 4th place in the subject ranking for Physics and Astronomy of the Good University Guide, published by The Times and Sunday Times on 18th September 2015. The University of Warwick as a whole is in 6th place overall in their league table of UK universities.
The latest 2015 National Student Survey (NSS) shows that 95% of undergraduates who completed courses in the Physics Department are satisfied overall with their course. This is the fourth highest satisfaction rating among Russell Group physics and astronomy departments.
Congratulations to our new cohort of undergraduates on your excellent examination results and gaining a place on the Warwick Physics or Math/Phys course. In preparation for your studies and life on campus there are already things to do that are outlined on the pages for new physics students and Welcome to Warwick.
We look forward to seeing you all on Monday October 5th for the first day of term.
