<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>

  • Strong coupling in a microcavity containing β-carotene 

    Grant, Richard T.; Jayaprakash, Rahul; Coles, David M; Musser, Andrew; Liberato, Simone De; Samuel, Ifor D.W.; Turnbull, Graham A.; Clark, Jenny; Lidzey, David G. (2018-01-31) - Journal article
    We have fabricated an open-cavity microcavity structure containing a thin film of the biologically-derived molecule β-carotene. We show that the β-carotene absorption can be described in terms of a series of Lorentzian ...
  • Morphological, chemical, and electronic changes of the conjugated polymer PTB7 with thermal annealing 

    Savikhin, Victoria; Jagadamma, Lethy K.; Purvis, Lafe J.; Robertson, Iain; Oosterhout, Stefan D.; Douglas, Christopher J.; Samuel, Ifor D. W.; Toney, Michael F. (2018-03-22) - Journal article
    There is considerable interest in improving the performance of organic optoelectronic devices through processing techniques. Here, we study the effect of high-temperature annealing on the properties of the semiconducting ...
  • Origin of the Local Group satellite planes 

    Banik, Indranil; O'Ryan, David; Zhao, Hongsheng (2018-04-12) - Journal article
    We attempt to understand the planes of satellite galaxies orbiting the Milky Way (MW) and M31 in the context of Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND), which implies a close MW-M31 flyby occurred ≈8 Gyr ago. Using the timing ...
  • Exogenous mineralization of hard tissues using photo-absorptive minerals and femto-second lasers : the case of dental enamel 

    Anastasiou, A. D.; Strafford, S.; Thomson, C. L.; Gardy, J.; Edwards, T. J.; Malinowski, M.; Hussain, S. A.; Metzger, N.K.; Hassanpour, A.; Brown, C. T. A.; Brown, A. P.; Duggal, M. S.; Jha, A. (2018-04-15) - Journal article
    A radical new methodology for the exogenous mineralization of hard tissues is demonstrated in the context of laser-biomaterials interaction. The proposed approach is based on the use of femtosecond pulsed lasers (fs) and ...
  • Nonlinear frequency conversion in isotropic semiconductor waveguides 

    Moutzouris, Konstantinos (University of St Andrews, 2003) - Thesis
    This thesis describes an experimental investigation of optical frequency conversion in isotropic semiconductor waveguides by use of several phase-matching approaches. Efficient, type I second harmonic generation of ...
