<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>

  • Electro-optic modulation in bulk silicon using surface plasmon resonance 

    Debnath, Kapil; Damas, Pedro; O'Faolain, Liam (2016-01-01) - Journal article
    We propose and present simulated results for a new design of an optical modulator based on Surface Plasmon Polariton (SPP) resonance. The modulator is realized on a bulk silicon substrate, thus offering an opportunity for ...
  • A path towards understanding the rotation-activity relation of M dwarfs with K2 mission, X-ray and UV data 

    Stelzer, B.; Damasso, M.; Scholz, A.; Matt, S. P. (2016-12-01) - Journal article
    We study the relation between stellar rotation and magnetic activity fora sample of 134 bright, nearby M dwarfs observed in the Kepler Two-Wheel (K2) mission during campaigns C0-C4. The K2 light curves yield photometrically ...
  • The disappearing act: a dusty wind eclipsing RW Aur 

    Bozhinova, I.; Scholz, A.; Costigan, G.; Lux, O.; Davis, C. J.; Ray, T.; Boardman, N. F.; Hay, K. L.; Hewlett, T.; Hodosán, G.; Morton, B. (2016-12-21) - Journal article
    RW Aur is a young binary star that experienced a deep dimming in 2010-11in component A and a second even deeper dimming from summer 2014 to summer 2016. We present new unresolved multi-band photometry during the 2014-16 ...
  • Use and development of a CW titanium sapphire laser for nonlinear optics 

    Shepherd, Sara (University of St Andrews, 1994) - Thesis
    A cw titanium sapphire laser pumped by an argon ion laser was used for experiments both in second harmonic generation using a non-linear crystal and for sum-frequency generation in an atomic vapour. In addition the laser ...
  • Towards multicaloric effect with ferroelectrics 

    Liu, Yang; Zhang, GuangZu; Li, Qi; Bellaiche, Laurent; Scott, James Floyd; Dkhil, Brahim; Wang, Qing (2016-12-02) - Journal article
    Utilizing thermal changes in solid state materials strategically offers caloric-based alternatives to replace current vapor-compression technology. To make full use of multiple forms of the entropy and achieve higher ...
