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.

70 years ago Erwin Schrödinger published an article that subsequently inspired Crick and! Watson to discover the structure of DNA. According to Google Scholar it is presently his most cited. Even more so than his work which discovered quantum mechanics. In this public talk we celebrate the 70th of Schrödinger’s article that established Live Matter Physics and try and see what kind of answers Physics might provide.

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:

Julfest 2014

Christmas Party
Date: 20 December
Time: 18:00 h

Singularities and Gauge Theories III

Föreläsare: 
Luigi Tizzano
Tid: 
2014-11-27 13:45
Plats: 
Oseenska rummet 73121
Typ: 
Theoretical Physics

The idea of identifying string propagation in geometric singularities with certain gauge theories, is known as “geometric engineering”. In this series of talks I will introduce this construction and I will use it to obtain a number of supersymmetric gauge theories in four and five dimensions. Finally, I will review the recently proposed classification of six-dimensional superconformal field theory.

In Silico Characterizations of Malaria Pigment

Föreläsare: 
Ehesan Ali
Institution: 
Physics and Astronomy
Tid: 
2014-11-28 12:15
Plats: 
Å80101
Typ: 
Materials Theory

In this talk I will give a general overview of malaria disease, its impact and open scientific challenges. Detailed knowledge of the electronic structure, magnetic and optical properties of hemozoin, the malaria pigment, is essential for design of effective anti-malarial drugs as well as new malaria diagnosis techniques. Employing state-of-the-art electronic structure calculations we have recently performed an in-depth investigation of the malaria pigment. This provides new insight into the magnetic properties and spin-states. We also have explained the origins of various observed peaks in electronic and IR-spectra.
