<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>

  • Green perovskite distributed feedback lasers 

    Harwell, Jonathon Robert; Whitworth, Guy Luke; Turnbull, Graham Alexander; Samuel, Ifor David William (2017-09-15) - Journal article
    A visible perovskite distributed feedback laser is fabricated for the first time. Through the use of nanocrystal pinning, highly luminescent methylammonium lead bromide films are used to produce stable lasers emitting at ...
  • Can quantum gas microscopes directly image exotic glassy phases? 

    Thomson, Steven John; Walker, Liam S.; Harte, Tiffany L.; Bruce, Graham David (2016-08-30) - Conference poster
    With the advent of spatially resolved fluorescence imaging in quantum gas microscopes (see e.g. [1]), it is now possible to directly image glassy phases and probe the local effects of disorder in a highly controllable ...
  • Efficient real-time path integrals for non-Markovian spin-boson models 

    Strathearn, Aidan; Kirton, Peter George; Lovett, Brendon William (2017-09) - Journal article
    Strong coupling between a system and its environment leads to the emergence of non-Markovian dynamics, which cannot be described by a time-local master equation. One way to capture such dynamics is to use numerical real-time ...
  • GaAs integrated quantum photonics : towards compact and multi-functional quantum photonic integrated circuits 

    Dietrich, Christof Peter; Fiore, Andrea; Thompson, Mark G.; Kamp, Martin; Höfling, Sven (2016-11-22) - Journal item
    The recent progress in integrated quantum optics has set the stage for the development of an integrated platform for quantum information processing with photons, with potential applications in quantum simulation. Among the ...
  • The escape velocity curve of the Milky Way in Modified Newtonian Dynamics 

    Banik, Indranil; Zhao, Hongsheng (2017-09-11) - Journal article
    We determine the escape velocity from the Milky Way (MW) at a range of Galactocentric radii in the context of Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND). Due to its non-linear nature, escape is possible if the MW is considered ...
