<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>

  • Photographic surface photometry of galaxies in the Virgo cluster 

    Fraser, Christopher W. (University of St Andrews, 1971) - Thesis
    Surface photometry is one area of extragalactic studies in which information is urgently needed by optical as well as radio astronomers. The aim of this thesis is to supply some of the photometric parameters for 48 galaxies ...
  • The long-period effects of perturbation by Jupiter on the orbits of minor planets with commensurable mean motions 

    Vincent, Fiona (University of St Andrews, 1979) - Thesis
    Six minor planets with mean motions approximately commensurable with that of Jupiter were observed photographically: (87) Sylvia, (107) Camilla, (414) Liriope, (909) Ulla and (1574) Meyer (all with ratio 9/5), and (334) ...

(2018-05-02) - Journal article
    This paper describes the observations and the first data release (DR1) of the ESO public spectroscopic survey "VANDELS, a deep VIMOS survey of the CANDELS CDFS and UDS fields". The main targets of VANDELS are star-forming ...
  • A survey for variable young stars with small telescopes : first results from HOYS-CAPS 

    Froebrich, D.; Campbell-White, J.; Scholz, A.; Eislöffel, J.; Zegmott, T.; Billington, S. J.; Donohoe, J.; Makin, S. V.; Hibbert, R.; Newport, R. J.; Pickard, R.; Quinn, N.; Rodda, T.; Piehler, G.; Shelley, M.; Parkinson, S.; Wiersema, K.; Walton, I. (2018-05-23) - Journal article
    Variability in Young Stellar Objects (YSOs) is one of their primary characteristics. Long-term, multi-filter, high-cadence monitoring of large YSO samples is the key to understand the partly unusual light-curves that many ...
  • Photonic trimming of quantum emitters via direct fabrication of metallic nanofeatures 

    Li, Xin; Su, Rong-Ling; Zhou, Zhang-Kai; Yu, Ying; Di Falco, Andrea (2018-06-15) - Journal article
    In this paper, we demonstrate the control of the emission of a GaAs quantum dot embedded in a GaAs/AlGaAs nanowire by the post-fabrication of a plasmonic grating on its surface. Using a direct electron beam-induced deposition ...
