<P> The School has an internationally recognised set of research programmes in astrophysics, condensed-matter physics, and photonics. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008) we were pleased to see our research performance acknowledged by the panel's decision to rank us joint 2nd (with Cambridge &amp; Nottingham) of all departments in the UK. </P> <p> Around 30 academic staff work with approximately 50 research fellows and contract research staff, and about 55 PhD students. Our work is carried out in modern laboratories in St Andrews, as well as at major international research facilities in the UK and abroad. </P> <p> For more information please visit the <A HREF="http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/">School of Physics &amp; Astronomy</A> home page. <P> Research Institutes associated with this school are <P><A HREF="https://research-repository.st-andrews.ac.uk/handle/10023/190"> Organic Semiconductor Centre </A></P> <P><A HREF="https://research-repository.st-andrews.ac.uk/handle/10023/193"> St Andrews Centre for Advanced Materials (StACAM) </A></P> <P><A HREF="https://research-repository.st-andrews.ac.uk/handle/10023/246"> Photonics Innovation Centre </A></P> <P><A HREF="https://research-repository.st-andrews.ac.uk/handle/10023/249"> Ultrafast Photonics Collaboration (UPC)</A></P> <P><A HREF="http://research-repository.st-andrews.ac.uk/handle/10023/802"> Centre of Magnetic Resonance (CMR) </A></P>

F; Medling, A. M.; Metcalfe, N.; Richards, S. N.; Sande, J. van de; Scott, N.; Shanks, T.; Sharp, R.; Thomas, A. D.; Tonini, C. (2017-06-21) - Journal article
    We describe the selection of galaxies targeted in eight low-redshift clusters (APMCC0917, A168, A4038, EDCC442, A3880, A2399, A119 and A85; 0.029 < z < 0.058) as part of the Sydney-AAO Multi-Object Integral field spectrograph ...
  • The SAMI galaxy survey : kinematics of dusty early-type galaxies 

    Bassett, Robert; Bekki, K.; Cortese, L.; Couch, W. J.; Sansom, A. E.; Sande, J. van de; Bryant, J. J.; Foster, C.; Croom, S. M.; Brough, S.; Sweet, S. M.; Medling, A. M.; Owers, M. S.; Driver, S. P.; Davies, L. J. M.; Wong, O. I.; Groves, B. A.; Bland-Hawthorn, J.; Richards, S. N.; Goodwin, M.; Konstantopoulos, I. S.; Lawrence, J. S. (2017-09) - Journal article
    Recently, large samples of visually classified early-type galaxies (ETGs) containing dust have been identified using space-based infrared observations with the Herschel Space Telescope. The presence of large quantities of ...
  • VALES I : the molecular gas content in star-forming dusty H-ATLAS galaxies up to z=0.35 

    Villanueva, V.; Ibar, E.; Hughes, T. M.; Lara-López, M. A.; Dunne, L.; Eales, S.; Ivison, R. J.; Aravena, M.; Baes, M.; Bourne, N.; Cassata, P.; Cooray, A.; Dannerbauer, H.; Davies, L. J.

L.; Rodighiero, G.; Valiante, E.; Werf, P. van der (2017-10) - Journal article
    We present an extragalactic survey using observations from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to characterize galaxy populations up to z = 0.35: the Valparaíso ALMA Line Emission Survey (VALES). We use ...
  • Self-consistent bulge/disk/halo galaxy dynamical modeling using integral field kinematics 

    Taranu, D. S.; Obreschkow, D.; Dubinski, J. J.; Fogarty, L. M. R.; Sande, J. van de; Catinella, B.; Cortese, L.; Moffett, A.; Robotham, A. S. G.; Allen, J. T.; Bland-Hawthorn, J.; Bryant, J. J.; Colless, M.; Croom, S. M.; D'Eugenio, F.; Davies, R. L.; Drinkwater, M. J.; Driver, S. P.; Goodwin, M.; Konstantopoulos, I. S.; Lawrence, J. S.; López-Sánchez, Á. R.; Lorente, N. P. F.; Medling, A. M.; Mould, J. R.; Owers, M. S.; Power, C.; Richards, S. N.; Tonini, C. (2017-11-20) - Journal article
    We introduce a method for modeling disk galaxies designed to take full advantage of data from integral field spectroscopy (IFS). The method fits equilibrium models to simultaneously reproduce the surface brightness, rotation, ...
