From particle physics research to a commercial product

The new edition of the Oxford Physics Newsletter showcases commercialisation of technology invented for fundamental particle physics experiments and is now being used in applications across the hi-tech manufacturing sector. The article describes how we collaborated with industry to bring this exciting precise measurement technology to market. We also recount the story of Oxford Physics’ first ever spin-out company, the now hugely successful Oxford Instruments plc.

Four Royal Society University Research Fellowships for Physics

The Royal Society has announced the appointment of 43 new University Research Fellows (URFs) for 2017. The University Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding early career scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career. The scheme is extremely competitive and URFs are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships, and many have gone on to enjoy significant national or international recognition for their work.
