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.

Oxford University Physics Department Industry Day

The University of Oxford Physics Department held an industry day in October to highlight existing commercial projects and to gain interest in further industrial collaboration. Companies visited the department to find out more about working with Oxford Physics, including how to access their £3k collaboration voucher competition. The Head of the Department, John Wheater said “It is good to see so much interest from companies in the research going on in the department.
