Institutionen för fysik och astronomi bildades den 1 januari 2010 genom en sammanslagning av institutionen för fysik och astronomi och institutionen för fysik och materialvetenskap.

Institutionen för fysik och astronomi har tre huvuduppgifter; Utbildning, Forskning och Samhällssamverkan, vilka utförs inom Astronomi och rymdfysik, Fysikens didaktik, Högenergifysik, Jonfysik, Kärnfysik, Materialfysik, Materialteori, Molekyl och kondenserande materiens fysik, Teoretisk fysik, och Tillämpad kärnfysik
Ni hittar oss i Ångströmlaboratoriet i Uppsala.

New ALMA image shows close interaction between Mira and its companion

Studying red giant stars tells astronomers about the future of the Sun and about how previous generations of stars spread the elements needed for life across the Universe. One of the most famous red giants in the sky is called Mira and lies about 400 light-years from Earth. Sofia Ramstedt is leading an international project to study binary red giant stars with ALMA and Mira is part of that study. The new high-resolution images reveal the close interaction between Mira and its companion. Despite their rather large separation, the two stars have had a strong effect on one another and the new images demonstrate how double stars can influence their environments and leave clues for what will be their future fate.

The image has been selected as ESO’s picture of the week:

Galaxies and binary supermassive black holes

Department wide

We now realized that every galaxy with a stellar mass comparable to or greater than that of the Milky Way harbors at least one supermassive black hole and that the properties of a galaxy are related to the mass of its central black hole. The binding energy of a supermassive black hole greatly exceeds that of its host galaxy and the energy liberated by supermassive black holes exceeds the energy liberated through nuclear reactions in stars. Since the pioneering work of Holmberg in the 1940s it has been recognized that encounters between galaxies lead to mergers. Because galaxies contain black holes, mergers of galaxies must lead to the formation of binary supermassive black holes.

"Open-closed superstring amplitudes using vertex operators in AdS_5 x S^5"

Föreläsare:

Using the pure-spinor formalism, Berkovits and Fleury have
recently found leading-order expressions for the supergravity vertex operators in an AdS_5 x S^5 background. In this talk, after briefly reviewing their work, I will present the first application of their results, showing that a well-known harmonic superspace coupling can be obtained as the result of a superstring scattering amplitude computation involving open and closed superstring vertex operators in AdS_5 x S^5.
