<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>

  • Wavelength-controlled external-cavity laser with a silicon photonic crystal resonant reflector 

    Gonzalez-Fernandez, A. A.; Liles, Alexandros A.; Persheyev, Saydulla; Debnath, Kapil; O'Faolain, Liam (SPIE-The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2016-03-15) - Conference item
    We report the experimental demonstration of an alternative design of external-cavity hybrid lasers consisting of a III-V Semiconductor Optical Amplifier with fiber reflector and a Photonic Crystal (PhC) based resonant ...
  • The Sloan Digital Sky Survey Reverberation Mapping Project : an investigation of biases in C iv emission line properties 

    Denney, K. D.; Horne, Keith; Shen, Yue; Brandt, W. N.; Ho, Luis C.; Peterson, B. M.; Richards, Gordon T.; Trump, J. R.; Ge, J. (2016-05-26) - Journal article
    We investigate the dependence on data quality of quasar properties measured from the C iv emission line region at high redshifts. Our measurements come from 32 epochs of Sloan Digital Sky Survey Reverberation Mapping Project ...
  • Local electrical imaging of tetragonal domains and field-induced ferroelectric twin walls in conducting SrTiO3 

    Ma, H. J. Harsan; Scharinger, S.; Zeng, S. W.; Kohlberger, D.; Lange, M.; Stöhr, A.; Wang, X. Renshaw; Venkatesan, T.; Kleiner, R.; Scott, J. F.; Coey, J. M. D.; Koelle, D.; Ariando, . (2016-06-20) - Journal article
    We demonstrate electrical mapping of tetragonal domains and electric field-induced twin walls in SrTiO3 as a function of temperature and gate bias utilizing the conducting LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface and low-temperature scanning ...
  • An extreme planetary system around HD 219828 : one long-period super Jupiter to a hot-Neptune host star 

    Santos, N. C.; Santerne, A.; Faria, J. P.; Rey, J.; Correia, A. C. M.; Laskar, J.; Udry, S.; Adibekyan, V.; Bouchy, F.; Delgado-Mena, E.; Melo, C.; Dumusque, X.; Hébrard, G.; Lovis, C.; Mayor, M.; Montalto, M.; Mortier, A.; Pepe, F.; Figueira, P.; Sahlmann, J.; Ségransan, D.; Sousa, S. G. (2016-05-11) - Journal article
    Context. With about 2000 extrasolar planets confirmed, the results show that planetary systems have a whole range of unexpected properties. This wide diversity provides fundamental clues to the processes of planet formation ...
  • V5852 Sgr : an unusual nova possibly associated with the Sagittarius stream 

    Aydi, E.; Mróz, P.; Whitelock, P. A.; Mohamed, S.; Wyrzykowski, Ł.; Udalski, A.; Vaisanen, P.; Nagayama, T.; Dominik, M.; Scholz, A.; Onozato, H.; Williams, R. E.; Hodgkin, S. T.; Nishiyama, S.; Yamagishi, M.; Smith, A. M. S.; Ryu, T.; Iwamatsu, A.; Kawamata, I. (2016-09-11) - Journal article
    We report spectroscopic and photometric follow-up of the peculiar nova V5852~Sgr (discovered as OGLE-2015-NOVA-01), which exhibits a combination of features from different nova classes. The photometry shows a flat-topped ...
