The St Andrews Centre for Higher Education Research currently consists of staff across 17 Schools and six central University units. The Centre aims to facilitate cross-departmental collaboration in higher education research. CHER brings together staff interested in conducting evidence-based higher education research to inform local, national and international policy and practice, and to promote a reflective, analytical view of Higher Education activities.

  • Entropy as a function of magnetisation for a 2D spin-ice model exhibiting a Kasteleyn transition 

    Grigera, Santiago; Hooley, Christopher (2018-08) - Journal article
    We present a combined analytical and numerical study of the entropy as a function of magnetization for an orientable 2D spin-ice model that exhibits a Kasteleyn transition. The model that we use is related to the well known ...
  • Enhanced photoluminescence emission and thermal stability from introduced cation disorder in phosphors 

    Lin, Chun Che; Tsai, Yi‒Ting; Johnston, Hannah; Fang, Mu‒Huai; Yu, Fengjiao; Zhou, Wuzong; Whitfield, Pamela; Li, Ye; Wang, Jing; Liu, Ru‒Shi; Attfield, J. Paul (2017-08-30) - Journal article
    Optimising properties of phosphors for use in white light‒emitting diodes (WLEDs) is an important materials challenge. Most phosphors have a low level of lattice disorder due to mismatch between the host and activator ...
