15th Hintze Lecture

Date: 
13 Nov 2017 - 5:30pm
Venue: 
martinwood
Room: 
Martin Wood Lecture Theatre
Audience: 
General public (Age 14+)

The 15th Hintze Lecture will be delivered by Professor Brian Schmidt, Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University and 2011 Noble Prize Winner in Physics.

Title: State of the Universe
Abstract: Our Universe was created in 'The Big Bang' and has been expanding ever since. Professor Schmidt will describe the vital statistics of the Universe, including its size, weight, shape, age, and composition. Professor Schmidt will also try to make sense of the Universe's past, present, and future – and describe what we know, and what we do not yet know, about the Cosmos

Oxford Physicists Line Up Laser Pulses To Drive Plasma Wakefields

Oxford Physicists Line Up Laser Pulses To Drive Plasma Wakefields

A team led by Professor Simon Hooker's group at Oxford have shown that very compact particle accelerators could be driven by trains of laser pulses travelling through a plasma (an ionized gas). This work illustrates the potential for efficient plasma accelerators operating at much higher pulse repetition rates than possible to date.
