<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>

I.; Teems, K. G.; Treu, T.; Turner, C. S.; Uttley, P.; Villforth, C.; Weiss, Y.; Woo, J. H.; Yan, H.; Young, S. (2016-04-10) - Journal article
    We present ground-based optical photometric monitoring data for NGC 5548, part of an extended multiwavelength reverberation mapping campaign. The light curves have nearly daily cadence from 2014 January to July in nine ...
  • Directly observing continuum emission from self-gravitating spiral waves 

    Hall, Cassandra; Forgan, Duncan; Rice, Ken; Harries, Tim J.; Klaassen, Pamela D.; Biller, Beth (2016-05-01) - Journal article
    We use a simple, self-consistent, self-gravitating semi-analytic disc model to conduct an examination of the parameter space in which self-gravitating discs may exist. We then use Monte Carlo radiative transfer to generate ...
  • Field-temperature phase diagram and entropy landscape of CeAuSb2 

    Zhao, Lishan; Yelland, Edward A.; Bruin, Jan A. N.; Sheikin, Ilya; Canfield, Paul C.; Fritsch, Veronika; Sakai, Hideaki; Mackenzie, Andrew P.; Hicks, Clifford W. (2016-04-07) - Journal article
    We report a field-temperature phase diagram and an entropy map for the heavy fermion compound CeAuSb2. CeAuSb2 orders antiferromagnetically below TN=6.6 K, and has two metamagnetic transitions, at 2.8 and 5.6 T. The locations ...
  • Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) : the stellar mass budget by galaxy type 

    Moffett, Amanda J.; Ingarfield, Stephen A.; Driver, Simon Peter; Robotham, Aaron S. G.; Kelvin, Lee S.; Lange, Rebecca; Meštrić, Uroš; Alpaslan, Mehmet; Baldry, Ivan K.; Bland-Hawthorn, Joss; Brough, Sarah; Cluver, Michelle E.; Davies, Luke J. M.; Holwerda, Benne W.; Hopkins, Andrew M.; Kafle, Prajwal R.; Kennedy, Rebecca; Norberg, Peder; Taylor, Edward N. (2016-04-01) - Journal article
    We report an expanded sample of visual morphological classifications from the Galaxy and Mass Assembly survey phase two, which now includes 7556 objects (previously 3727 in phase one). We define a local (z 
  • Overcoming power broadening of the quantum dot emission in a pure wurtzite nanowire 

    Reimer, Michael E.; Bulgarini, Gabriele; Heeres, Reinier W.; Witek, Barbara J.; Versteegh, Marijn A. M.; Rubino, A.; Zwiller, Val; Braun, T.; Kamp, M.; Höfling, Sven; Dalacu, Dan; Lapointe, Jean; Poole, Philip J. (2016-04-29) - Journal article
    One of the key challenges in developing quantum networks is to generate single photons with high brightness, purity, and long temporal coherence. Semiconductor quantum dots potentially satisfy these requirements; however, ...
