ATLAS event display of circulating beam splash, LHC Run 2

Members of the QMUL Particle Physics Research Centre (PPRC) involved in the ATLAS experiment and the GridPP computing network are ready for the new operational phase of the LHC, as CERN announces the first successful circulation of proton beams after a two years maintenance stop.

The Particle Physics Research Centre (PPRC) in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary, University of London has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work within the Hyper-Kamiokande group on the Hyper-Kamiokande experiment. It is expected that the Postdoctoral Research Associate may also contribute to the current Super-Kamiokande experiment.

 Saturday 31 January 2015, Kashiwa (Japan), the inugural symposium of the Hyper-Kamiokande proto-collaboration was held.

GRADnet PhD Studentship second Open Day

The GRADnet PhD Studentship second Open Day will take place at 13:00-16:00 on Thursday, 19th March 2015 at the Royal Astronomical Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.

The School of Physics and Astronomy has strongly contributed to the excellent results obtained in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) by QMUL, which has been ranked 9th among multi-faculty institutions in the UK.

New Connections Between Experiment and Theory Institute

Congratulations to Mr Declan Millar, a NExT PhD Student on a joint QMUL-Southampton PhD programme on the project `Search for Resonant Production of Top Pairs at ATLAS', supervised by Dr Lucio Cerrito (QMUL PPRC) and Prof Stefano Moretti (Southampton HEP group), who has secured a very prestigious ATLAS PhD Grant.

Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary University of London is ranked joint 1st in London with an overall student satisfaction rate of 94 per cent, according to the latest results of a nationwide poll of final-year undergraduates.

Jim Cronin accepting a copy of the Physics of the B Factories during the 50 years of CP violation conference at QMUL

July 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the discovery of CP violation. This is a tiny difference between matter and antimatter that is vital for the Universe to have evolved into its matter dominated state. We heard about this discovery from one of the co-discoverers of the phenomenon, Jim Cronin. Following this talk Makoto Kobayashi, who with his collaborator Maskawa, wrote down our current model of CP violation in the CKM matrix told his part of the story. This was the start to a two day event at QMUL to explore the past (and future) studies during the 50 years of CP violation conference.
