My name’s Rebecca and I love Physics. Find out why science outreach is so important and the recent outreach experience I have gained with the CDT-CMP and the Multiphoton Nanophotonics group at the University of Bath.
Condensed matter physics
A recent theoretical work in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter uncovers new results for the Mott transition in the periodic Anderson model
An efficient numerical scheme for infinite vortex lattices in superfluids
In silico drug design stands to benefit from deeper insights into hydration properties achieved with 3D-RISM
An Active Granular Fluid model shows how cellular activities are coordinated through mechanical feedback
As their first year comes to a close find out what has been our cohort’s 10 best bits of the year. So in no particular order…
Ultrasensitive detection, biological sensor, chemical sensor, even applications in environmental science, the potential for 3D plasmonic nanostructures in plasmon enhanced fluorescence (PEF) is fairly impressive.
This weeks image comes from a paper by Shoichi Tanimoto et al who use molecular dynamics the 3D reference interaction site model (3D-RISM) method to examine the ion dependancy of carbohydrate binding in the carbohydrate-binding module family 36 (CBM36).
For a recent colloquium at the University of Bath, Professor Andrea Cavalleri spoke about his work on ‘controlling solid phases with light’.

Low intensity laser excitation of solid targets with periodically ordered nano-objects generates electrons with energies as high as 300eV
Surface patterning turns first-order a prewetting transition into a continuous one.
It’s the age old question – experimental or theoretical physics. Find out which Emma chooses as she explores both in her first year as a PhD student.
Professor Dr Lucio Iso answers our questions about his research in soft matter physics and why he believes micro-robots are the future.
Matthieu Jamet et al introduce their latest work, explaining the principles behind spintronics and the spin current in Germanium films.
The collaboration between academia and industry is vital, and these links must be exploited early in any scientist’s career.
Our latest image of the week is taken from work by Young Keun Lee et al 2016 whose special issue paper suggests that hot electrons can mediate the energy conversion process from solar energy to electrical and chemical energy.
