<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>

  • Even odder after twenty-three years : the superconducting order parameter puzzle of Sr2RuO4 

    Mackenzie, Andrew P; Scaffidi, Thomas; Hicks, Clifford W; Maeno, Yoshiteru (2017-07-18) - Journal item
    In this short review, we aim to provide a topical update on the status of efforts to understand the superconductivity of Sr2RuO4. We concentrate on the quest to identify a superconducting order parameter symmetry that is ...
  • Hydrodynamic electron flow and Hall viscosity 

    Scaffidi, Thomas; Nandi, Nabhanila; Schmidt, Burkhard; Mackenzie, Andrew P.; Moore, Joel E. (2017-06-02) - Journal article
    In metallic samples of small enough size and sufficiently strong momentum-conserving scattering, the viscosity of the electron gas can become the dominant process governing transport. In this regime, momentum is a long-lived ...
  • Emergent Weyl fermion excitations in TaP explored by 181Ta quadrupole resonance 

    Yasuoka, H.; Kubo, T.; Kishimoto, Y.; Kasinathan, D.; Schmidt, M.; Yan, B.; Zhang, Y.; Tou, H.; Felser, C.; Mackenzie, A. P.; Baenitz, M. (2017-06-09) - Journal article
    The 181Ta quadrupole resonance [nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR)] technique is utilized to investigate the microscopic magnetic properties of the Weyl semimetal TaP. We find three zero-field NQR signals associated with ...
  • Investigation of the magnetic properties of copper, aluminium and iron-copper alloys 

    Hutchison, T. S. (Thomas S.) (University of St Andrews, 1949) - Thesis
    Several workers have previously investigated the magnetic properties of copper and aluminium, but in most cases too small regard has been paid to the changes in magnetic susceptibility brought about by mechanical and thermal ...
  • Electron scattering in gases 

    Baines, Gordon Owen (University of St Andrews, 1935) - Thesis
    This thesis is divided into two parts; the first containing theoretical work and discussions; and the second the experimental work. Section 1 contains a discussion of the stationary states in an atom and the kinetic theory ...
