Learn about astrophysics and astronomy with talks on this month's night sky and current research; a question and answer session with our friendly expert panel, and the chance to observe (weather permitting) with the Astronomy Society's portable telescopes and the University's historic Grubb telescope. Can we turn nano-science into a manufacturing industry? Date14/02/2017 - 14/03/2017DescriptionThe fundamentals of nano-science lie in the precise manipulation of atoms and molecules - architecture on the atomic scale. Mini Big Bangs in ALICE and the CERN LHC Date14/03/2017DescriptionDavid Evans, Professor in High Energy Physics, will explain the physics behind the LHC and, in particular, the ALICE Experiment. His talk will include some audience participation and demonstrations with liquid nitrogen and is aimed at all age groups. EPS Societies' Awards 2017 Date07/06/2017DescriptionReturning for their fourth year, the EPS Societies' Awards are the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences' annual celebration of our 24 student groups. IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics Date16 - 20/07/2017DescriptionThe International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) is delighted to announce that the 6th conference in this series will be hosted by Birmingham, UK. The conference will be held in July 2017 at the University of Birmingham, organised in partnership with the Institute of Physics (IOP) and the Universities of Nottingham and Warwick. Having all been awarded Juno Champion status by IOP, the three universities' physics departments are strongly committed to promoting diversity and look forward to being fully involved in the conference.

Detecting gravitational waves in space: LISA Pathfinder test mission launch imminent DescriptionLISA Pathfinder (LPF), the test mission to demonstrate new technologies necessary for the planned gravitational wave observatory eLISA, will be shipped to the spaceport in Kourou on September 3rd, 2015, in preparation for launch. Physics and Astronomy receives top marks for student satisfaction DescriptionParticipants in the National Student Survey (NSS) have ranked Physics and Astronomy highly at the University of Birmingham with 96 student satisfaction. New breath test shows possible biomarker for early-stage liver disease diagnosis DescriptionA natural compound called limonene, which is found in oranges and lemons, could be indicative in early-stage diagnosis of liver disease, according to research published in the journal EBioMedicine by researchers in the Molecular Physics Group at the University of Birmingham. New Staff in Physics & Astronomy, March – June 2015 DescriptionA round-up of new Physics and Astronomy staff members March – June 2015 Shining a light on black holes: Revolutionising our understanding of the universe from the dawn of time DescriptionProfessor Andreas Freise and the Gravitational Wave Group have been listening in to the universe's 'gravity channel' - ripples in space-time caused by violent cosmic events such as the explosion of stars or the collision of two black holes to revolutionise our understanding of the universe. LHC experiments are back in business at a new record energy DescriptionGeneva, 03 June, 2015. Birmingham physicists eagerly await results as CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) starts to deliver physics data today for the first time in 27 months. Major research project to detect gravitational waves is underway DescriptionA research project to detect gravitational waves, minute ripples in the fabric of space and that were predicted by Einstein, was officially launched on May 19, 2015. Professor Yvonne Elsworth elected Royal Society Fellow DescriptionCongratulations to Professor Yvonne Elsworth on her election as a Fellow of the Royal Society, a fellowship of many of the world's most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering and medicine. What next at the Large Hadron Collider? DescriptionIt is rare for an academic discipline to double the observable landscape that it's able to study, but that's what's currently happening in particle physics. Over the past two years, around 400 engineers and technicians have together put in about a million hours to prepare the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to produce collisions between protons at almost twice the energy previously attained.
