Centre for Applied Superconductivity open for business

For an idea in physics to have real-world impact, you need an unbroken chain stretching from physics, through materials discovery and development, and right along to industry. Joining up these disparate areas in the field of superconductor research is the aim of a new Centre for Applied Superconductivity (CfAS), a collaborative effort between local industrial companies and Oxford University’s Departments of Materials and Physics.

Physics Industry Day

The Department of Physics at the University of Oxford will be holding an Industry Day on Friday 23rd September 2016.

The event will see us open our doors with the objective of exploring how Oxford Physics can help your company innovate and grow. The event will allow companies to:

• Find out about our research and how to access our facilities
• Discuss our technologies and applications
• Meet our staff and students
• Network with other companies
• Explore collaboration opportunities

Innovate UK and the support available for academic/industrial collaborations

Date: 
3 Mar 2016 - 11:30am
Venue: 
martinwood
Room: 
First Floor Audrey Wood Meeting Room
Audience: 
Students and researchers interested in developing industrial collaboration

Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency. Our budget of approximately £440 million/year is used to help companies to develop new technologies such as quantum, digital and materials that will apply to sectors such as transport, health, and aerospace. A large proportion of our work is used to fund company/academic projects which help to translate good ideas into new products and services.

Professor Harry Jones, 1945-2015

The Physics Department is sad to announce the death of Professor Harry Jones.

Harry, who was 70 in February, joined the department in 1968 and served Oxford Physics for 44 years before formally retiring in 2012. He was well known around the world for his great expertise in superconducting magnets, which formed the basis of high magnetic field work done in the Clarendon Laboratory over very many years. His legacy is kept alive by the newly formed Oxford Centre for Applied Superconductivity.

Our condolences go to his wife Linda, and to his wider family.

Oxford Physics space instrument now successfully in Earth orbit on TechDemoSat-1

Yesterday a Soyuz-Fregat rocket lifted off at just before 5PM and along for the ride was a new, compact infrared instrument developed by the Planetary Experiments Group in Oxford Physics and RALSpace at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Called the Compact Modular Sounder, or CMS, the instrument is designed to map surface and atmospheric temperature properties, is about the size of a shoe box and has a mass of just 4.5 kg.
