    • Coherent polariton laser 

      Kim, Seonghoon; Zhang, Bo; Wang, Zhaorong; Fischer, Julian; Brodbeck, Sebastian; Kamp, Martin; Schneider, Christian; Höfling, Sven; Deng, Hui (2016-03-11) - Journal article
      The semiconductor polariton laser promises a new source of coherent light, which, compared to conventional semiconductor photon lasers, has input-energy threshold orders of magnitude lower. However, intensity stability, a ...
    • Contemporary poets' responses to science 

      MacKenzie, Victoria R. (University of St Andrews, 2013-11-30) - Thesis
      This thesis considers a range of contemporary poets’ responses to science, emphasising the diversity of these engagements and exploring how poetry can disrupt or re-negotiate the barriers between the two activities. My ...
    • Development of quantum perspectives in modern physics 

      Baily, Charles; Finkelstein, Noah D. (2009-03-23) - Journal article
      Introductory undergraduate courses in classical physics stress a perspective that can be characterized as realist; from this perspective, all physical properties of a classical system can be simultaneously specified and ...
    • Negative frequency at the horizon : scattering of light at a refractive index front 

      Jacquet, Maxime J. (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
      This thesis considers the problem of calculating and observing the mixing of modes of positive and negative frequency in inhomogeneous, dispersive media. Scattering of vacuum modes of the electromagnetic field at a moving ...
    • Refined characterization of student perspectives on quantum physics 

      Baily, Charles; Finkelstein, Noah D. (2010-09-16) - Journal article
      The perspectives of introductory classical physics students can often negatively influence how those students later interpret quantum phenomena when taking an introductory course in modern physics. A detailed exploration ...
    • Teaching and understanding of quantum interpretations in modern physics courses 

      Baily, Charles; Finkelstein, Noah D. (2010-01-27) - Journal article
      Just as expert physicists vary in their personal stances on interpretation in quantum mechanics, instructors vary on whether and how to teach interpretations of quantum phenomena in introductory modern physics courses. In ...
