Courses Overview The Department of Physics, Atmospheric Sciences and Geoscience is rapidly growing and has a diverse range of active research areas which include optics and photonics, meteorological observations, modeling and forecasting; computational sciences, nano-technology, materials science, renewable energy, earth and space science, and science education.
Mesosopic Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen states of massive systems Margaret D Reid The demonstration of long-lived entanglement between two separated massive systems opens up the possibility of new tests of quantum mechanics and decoherence theories.
It could occur in a modified quantum mechanics. In the EPR paradox, a measurement made by an observer at one location can seemingly instantaneously affect the quantum state at another.
Here, we will present evidence for EPR steerable entangled states of 40, atoms generated in a Bose-Einstein condensate . The structure of the correlations can be further analysed, to deduce miniature cat-type paradoxes with atoms.
In order to investigate EPR steerable states with spatial separations, we present a protocol for creating, storing and retrieving EPR steerable states of an opto-mechanical oscillator .
This leads us to consider the possibility of generating mechanical Schrodinger cat-states, and to test macroscopic realism for massive systems using Leggett—Garg and Bell inequalities in time.Congratulations to Professor Vincenzo Vitelli who has recently been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society "for theoretical contributions to the field of topological mechanics".
Physics and Astronomy The Physics and Astronomy Department at UCL is located in the heart of the historical area of Bloomsbury. Scientific research and study has been a strong feature of UCL since its inception in and the Department is one of the top rated Physics departments in .

Nearly of the world’s top students in theoretical physics traveled to UC Davis in June for the week-long Amplitudes Summer School, devoted to the study of scattering amplitudes and related topics in physics.
and particle physics. The Einstein equations that follow from Einstein’s theory of general relativity allow for a solution that leads to an accelerated expansion of our universe.
A PhD in particle physics. Do you have a master’s degree in physics or have you almost graduated? Are you fascinated by gravitational waves, elementary particles, or what happened directly after the big bang?
As a PhD student at Nikhef, you will work to become a professional researcher specialised in particle physics.
