<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>

  • A laboratory-based Laue X-ray diffraction system for enhanced imaging range and surface grain mapping 

    Whitley, William; Stock, Chris; Huxley, Andrew D. (2015-08) - Journal article
    Although CCD X-ray detectors can be faster to use, their large-area versions can be much more expensive than similarly sized photographic plate detectors. When indexing X-ray diffraction patterns, large-area detectors can ...
  • Spin-valley locking in the normal state of a transition-metal dichalcogenide superconductor 

    Bawden, Lewis; Cooil, S. P.; Riley, Jonathon Mark; Collins-McIntyre, Liam James; Sunko, Veronika; Hunvik, K.; Leandersson, M.; Polley, C. M.; Balasubramanian, T.; Kim, T. K.; Hoesch, M.; Wells, J. W.; Balakrishnan, G.; Bahramy, M. S.; King, Philip David (2016-05-23) - Journal article
    Metallic transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) are benchmark systems for studying and controlling intertwined electronic orders in solids, with superconductivity developing from a charge density-wave state. The interplay ...
  • Spatial resolution and refractive index contrast of resonant photonic crystal surfaces for biosensing 

    Triggs, G. J.; Fischer, M.; Stellinga, D.; Scullion, M. G.; Evans, G. J. O.; Krauss, T. F. (2015-06) - Journal article
    By depositing a resolution test pattern on top of a Si3N4 photonic crystal resonant surface, we have measured the dependence of spatial resolution on refractive index contrast Δn. Our experimental results and finite-difference ...
  • Efficient eco-friendly inverted quantum dot sensitized solar cells 

    Park, Jinhyung; Sajjad, Muhammad Tariq; Jouneau, Pierre-Henri; Ruseckas, Arvydas; Faure-Vincent, Jérôme; Samuel, Ifor David William; Reiss, Peter; Aldakov, Dmitry (2016-01-21) - Journal article
    Recent progress in quantum dot (QD) sensitized solar cells has demonstrated the possibility of low-cost and efficient photovoltaics. However, the standard device structure based on n-type materials often suffers from slow ...
  • Carrier-density control of the SrTiO3 (001) surface 2DEG studied by ARPES 

    McKeown Walker, Siobhan Ellen; Bruno, Flavio Y; Wang, Zhiming; de la Torre, Alberto; Riccó, Sara; Tamai, Anna; Kim, Timur; Hoesch, Moritz; Shi, Ming; Bahramy, Mohammed Saeed; King, Phil; Baumberger, Felix (2015) - Journal article
    The origin of the 2D electron gas (2DEG)stabilized at the bare surface of SrTiO3 (001) is investigated. Using high-resolution angle-resolved photoemission and core-level spectroscopy, it is shown conclusively that this ...
