New invention: broadband quantum limited frequency up-converter

Researchers at Oxford have devised a broadband high efficiency frequency up-converter based on the nonlinear wave mixing mechanism in a travelling wave parametric device. The up-converter exhibits quantum-limit noise performance, high conversion efficiency and cleanly defined spectral components. Key application areas include quantum-computing, astronomical experimentation and cryogenic readout applications.

Physics is changing your life.Nadlinger-Single-Atom-in-Ion-Trap_uncropped_0.jpg

At the Department of Physics, our research spans everything from the tiniest particles to the entire cosmos, but we don’t just leave the ideas scrawled on blackboards, hidden on hard drives or tucked into unfathomable scientific papers. We take our research and make it work for you.

Oxford Physics leads network to constrain the role of aerosols and clouds for global warming with AI

The European Commission has announced the funding of a new Innovative Training Network, led by Oxford University, which will train PhD students in Machine Learning Skills to address Climate Change.

iMIRACLI (innovative MachIne leaRning to constrain Aerosol-cloud CLimate Impacts) brings together leading climate and machine learning scientists across Europe with non-academic partners, such as Amazon and the MetOffice, to educate a new generation of climate data scientists.

clarendon
Room: 
Lindemann Lecture Theatre
Audience: 
Specialised / research interest

Celebrating its 35th year in 2019, the SETI Institute, founded by Astronomers Carl Sagan, Jill Tarter and Frank Drake, has grown from a small research team focused on searching for radio signals beyond our solar system (as a proxy for intelligent civilizations) to an organization of over 90 PhD scientists representing 23 different academic backgrounds, organized into 6 divisions of research. CEO, Bill Diamond, will describe the multidisciplinary structure and research of the Institute, whose mission is to explore, understand and explain the nature and origins of life in the universe.

New Invention: Electrodynamic Micro-Manipulator

The handling of non-spherical micron-sized objects is a challenge for the manufacturing industry and for the wider exploitation of nanomaterials. Current manipulation techniques consist of pick-and-place machines used to place microelectronic components onto circuit boards, and optical methods that use laser radiation to manipulate objects. Pick-and-place methods are unsuitable for objects smaller than 100 microns because electrostatic and Van der Waals attraction prevents their release.

Venue: 
clarendon
Room: 
Martin Wood Lecture Theatre

Finance might appear to be a world away from physics and hence from your life. However, whether you take not of it or not, your daily life is governed by markets. Finance is ultimately the study of markets, specifically seen through a financial lens and the understanding of these has ramifications for everything from how much we are paid to where we live and what is available in the supermarket.
