Martin Wood Lecture Theatre, followed by tea/coffee in the Clarendon Labs Common Room

Ghost imaging and ghost diffraction were first demonstrated by Shih and co-workers using photon pairs created by parametric down-conversion. They were able to obtain an image or a diffraction pattern using photons that had never interacted with the object, relying instead on the correlations with photons that have.

Oxford reflects fondly on Cassini as the end draws near

Oxford reflects fondly on Cassini as the end draws near

On Wednesday 26 April 2017, Cassini became the first spacecraft to ever plunge between Saturn and its innermost rings. In doing so, it came closer to the planet than any probe before it. This historic manoeuvre marks the beginning of the end, for what has been a landmark space mission.

A mechanical route to cell death

A MECHANICAL ROUTE TO CELL DEATH

By exploiting analogies to ‘active’ liquid crystals Oxford theoretical physicists have contributed to discovering a mechanical mechanism controlling the extrusion of dying cells from layers of tissue.
