  • Creating and probing of a perfect vortex in situ with an optically trapped particle 

    Chen, Mingzhou; Mazilu, Michael; Arita, Yoshihiko; Wright, Ewan M.; Dholakia, Kishan (2015-02) - Journal article
    We experimentally create a 'perfect' vortex beam, which has a uniform ring profile and fixed radius. In contrast with other vortex fields, the intensity profile is independent of its topological charge. We then correct ...
  • Creating mass public engagement on climate change 

    Involve (Organization : London, England) (Sustainable Development Commission, 2008-10-30) - Report
    The purpose of this document is to outline an approach to building large scale public engagement around the lead up to the Copenhagen 09 climate change conference.
  • Creating nuclear spin entanglement using an optical degree of freedom 

    Schaffry, Marcus; Lovett, Brendon W.; Gauger, Erik M. (2011-09-21) - Journal article
    Molecular nanostructures are promising building blocks for future quantum technologies, provided methods of harnessing their multiple degrees of freedom can be identified and implemented. Due to low decoherence rates, ...
  • Creating numbers : carbon and capital investment 

    Vesty, Gillian; Telgenkamp, Abby; Roscoe, Philip John (2015) - Journal article
    Purpose - This case study seeks to illustrate the way in which carbon emissions are given calculative agency. We contribute to sociology of quantification with a specific focus on the performativity of the carbon number ...
  • Creating open access books: a partnership between a university library and a research centre 

    Aucock, Janet (Ubiquity Press, 2014) - Book item
    Our e-book story from the University of St Andrews is one of partnership between the University Library and a particular research centre, the St Andrews Centre for French History and Culture. The Library and the editor ...
  • Creating S0s with major mergers : a 3D view 

    Querejeta, Miguel; Eliche-Moral, M. Carmen; Tapia, Trinidad; Borlaff, Alejandro; van de Ven, Glenn; Lyubenova, Mariya; Martig, Marie; Falcón-Barroso, Jesús; Mendez-Abreu, Jairo; Zamorano, Jaime; Gallego, Jesús (2015-12-03) - Journal article
    A number of simulators have argued that major mergers can sometimes preserve discs, but the possibility that they could explain the emergence of lenticular galaxies (S0s) has been generally neglected. In fact, observations ...
  • Creation and marginalisation in women’s writing in mid-twentieth-century Uruguay : the case of Concepción Silva Bélinzon’s poetry 

    Montañez Morillo, María Soledad (University of St Andrews, 2012-01-20) - Thesis
    This thesis explores how women’s writing in mid-twentieth century Uruguay enables a reconsideration of the intertwined hegemonic practices of literary canon formation and national identity in this seminal period. Within a ...
  • The creation of a contagious H5N1 influenza virus: implications for the education of life scientists 

    Novossiolova, Tatyana; Minehata, Masamichi; Dando, Malcolm (Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St Andrews, 2012-06-10) - Journal article
    The paper contends that the ongoing controversy surrounding the creation of a contagious H5N1 influenza virus has already exposed the severe limitations of the possibility of preventing the hostile misuse of the life ...
  • The creation of an administrative data based 1936 birth cohort study 

    Huang, Zengyi; Dibben, Christopher John Lloyd; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Deary, Ian; Popham, Frank; Connelly, Roxanne (2015-08-26) - Conference poster
    The objective of this project is to create a new 1936 Birth Cohort Study from routine and administrative data. It is structured around the existing Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS). We took the SLS birth date sample from ...
  • Creation of arbitrary Dicke and NOON states of trapped-ion qubits by global addressing with composite pulses 

    Ivanov, Svetoslav Stoychev; Vitanov, Nikolay V.; Korolkova, Natalia (2013-02-25) - Journal article
    We propose a fast and efficient technique to create classes of highly entangled states of trapped ions, such as arbitrary Dicke states and superpositions of them, e.g. NOON states. The ions are initialized in the phonon ...
  • Creation of orbital angular momentum states with chiral polaritonic lenses 

    Dall, R.; Fraser, M.D.; Desyatnikov, A.S.; Li, G.; Brodbeck, S.; Kamp, M.; Schneider, C.; Höfling, S.; Ostrovskaya, E.A. (2014-11-12) - Journal article
    Controlled transfer of orbital angular momentum to an exciton-polariton Bose-Einstein condensate spontaneously created under incoherent, off resonant excitation conditions is a long-standing challenge in the field of ...
  • Creation's beauty as revelation : toward a creational theology of natural beauty 

    Edwards, L. Clifton (University of St Andrews, 2011) - Thesis
    The thesis provides an account of how natural beauty functions as revelation and contributes to theology. The central claim is that natural beauty ‘images’ aspects of God’s nature and intentions within Creation’s artistic ...
  • The creative writer and West Indian society : Jamaica 1900-1950
