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.

Cedric Linder wins the 2014 ICPE Medal for Physics Education.

The International Commission on Physics Education is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2014 ICPE Medal for outstanding contributions to physics education is Professor Cedric Linder of Uppsala University, Sweden.

The award recognizes Professor Linder's outstanding contributions to physics education research. His work has been notable for its range, depth and impact, as well for its international scope. Educated at universities in South Africa, the USA and Canada, Cedric Linder, in 1996, was awarded the first personal Chair in Physics Education in South Africa. He moved to Uppsala University in 2000, becoming the first Professor of Physics Education Research in Sweden, while still retaining his professorship at the University of the Western Cape.

The latest on Active Galactic Nuclei (reported in Nature Physics)

Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) are fuelled by super-massive black holes residing in their centres, making them the most luminous (now extinct) galaxies in the universe. As part of her PhD thesis, Beatriz Villarroel has studied neighbours to two major types of AGN, to gain more insight into similarities and differences between theses types. According to a geometrical unification theory dating back to the 1980s, these two types are intrinsically similar objects, observed from different viewing angles (Type-1: pole-on; Type-2: edge-on). The present work identifies systematic differences in neighbours to Type-1 and Type-2 AGN, clearly showing that there are environmental (thus likely evolutionary) circumstances that influence the appearance of the AGN phenomenon.

Beyond the Standard Model with global fits: then, now and tomorrow

Föreläsare:

Typ: 
Nuclear and Particle Physics

Searches for particle physics beyond the Standard Model come in many forms, from searches for new particles at accelerators to gamma-ray and neutrino telescopes, cosmic ray detectors and ultra-clean experiments deep underground. Efforts to combine multiple search channels in 'global fits' to new physics scenarios typically consider only a subset of the available channels, and apply them to a very small range of possible theories. Astroparticle searches in particular are usually only included in a very approximate way, if at all. In this talk I will review recent progress in improving this situation, and preview some of the future developments and challenges in this field.

Math of quantum fields

Föreläsare: 
Maxim Zabzine
Institution: 
Uppsala
Tid: 
2014-11-06 13:30 - 14:30
Plats: 
Polhemsalen, Ångströmlaboratoriet
Typ: 
Theoretical Physics

Starting with the simple problem of counting partitions I will illustrate how the quantum theory can explain some non-trivial mathematical facts. Then I will give a non-expert overview of recent advances in quantum field theory and their relations to interesting geometrical invariants. I will also outline some fundamental mathematical problems which are posed by quantum field theory.
