 April 2010
Thursday 15
16:00 - SEMINAR - Joint Physics-Mathematics Colloquium : Quantum Geometry of 3-dimensional lattices More Information
We will discuss fascinating connections between discrete differential geometry, theory of integrable quantum systems, Yang-Baxter equation and quantum groups.

We will consider geometric consistency relations between angles on 3-dimensional circular quadrilateral lattices -- lattices (...)
Tuesday 20
15:30 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Precision Noise Measurements at Microwave and Optical Frequencies More Information
I will summarize the recent advances in (i) precision noise measurements, (ii) low-phase noise oscillators and (iii) extraction of spectrally pure microwave signals from optical sources. The progress achieved in those fields over the past 10 years was largely associated with the development of (...)

Tuesday 11
14:30 - SEMINAR - Physics Colloquium : NEUTRINOS: PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE More Information
I will review the overwhelming evidence for neutrino flavour oscillations and hence for nonzero neutrino masses and mixing angles. The current status of our understanding of neutrino properties will be presented, and the remaining mysteries stated. The rich international program of future (...)

14:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - Applications using next-generation sequencing technology in BGI : BGI, currently is one of the biggest genome centers in the world. More Information
As one of the biggest genome centers in the world, BGI owns high-throughput next-generation sequencing platforms (128 Hiseq2000, 30 Solexa sequencers from Illumina and over 30 units of ABI 3730 sequencers) and more than 400 bioinformatics scientist for fastest sequencing data generation and (...)

15:30 - PUBLIC TALK - Things you think you know about Black Holes, but don't! : Professor Roy Kerr will discuss his famous solution for spinning Black Holes More Information
Once powerful radio telescopes became available in the 1950‘s it was realised that the sky was full of objects emitting very intense radio waves but with no known associated optical counterparts. Because of the way that their intensities were changing rapidly they had to be very small and so they (...)
Thursday 17
14:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Making and measuring nanodiamonds for quantum and biological science More Information
Diamond has been central to a number of new and exciting breakthroughs in quantum and biological science for the past several years. The underpinning feature of diamond that makes this possible is the ability to host bright and optically stable colour centres at room-temperature. Of the hundred (...)
Tuesday 22
15:30 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : The Importance of the Moon to Planetary Science and Exploration (or “we haven’t been there and done that!”) More Information
Clive R. Neal is a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering & Geological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana, where he specializes in Igneous Petrology and Geochemistry. He has over 22 years of experience in working with lunar samples to unravel the history of the Moon (...)
Tuesday 29
15:30 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Massively Parallel Computing with NereusV Desktop Compute Cloud More Information
The insatiable appetite for computing power worldwide finds many enterprises scaling out horizontally using an increasingly mature set of software tools and cloud computing facilities. But what about the majority of users who have limited finances with which to tackle increasingly challenging (...)

 July 2010
Tuesday 27
15:30 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Beyond Electrodynamics: Thermonuclear Ringtones of Burning Plasmas More Information
Fusion energy research is now poised to advance rapidly due to a large international investment ($18 billion) in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor. ITER, with a power gain of over five, will explore the uncharted physics of burning plasmas, in which the energy liberated from the (...)

 August 2010
Tuesday 03
15:30 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : SPMD Algorithms Design in Computational Science and Technology More Information
Now cluster computing has become the dominating and cost efficient supercomputing style. Based on my ten years research and experience in the high performance computing field, I will introduce two practical parallel algorithms we have designed for two practical computational science and engineering (...)
Thursday 05
16:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical imaging contrast and elastography using optical coherence tomography More Information
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an emerging biomedical imaging modality that depth-resolves reflected light to produce images with micrometer-scale resolution and millimeter penetration depth into tissue. To enhance the capabilities of OCT, magnetic nanoparticles have been employed as (...)
Friday 06
15:30 - SEMINAR - Colloquium at ICRAR : AIGO and the structure of neutron stars More Information
Neutron stars are of great interest to nuclear physicists, because the state of matter in their cores (a few times nuclear density, but very sub-relativistic temperatures) cannot be probed directly in terrestrial laboratories. Possibilities for this matter range from almost entirely nucleonic to (...)
Tuesday 10
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Radiation from dense plasmas More Information
Plasma is the most abundant state of matter in the universe. While it can be found in many astrophysical objects, such as stars and giant planets, it is now also readily accessible in laboratories using intense ultra-short laser irradiation. Dense plasma is highly ionized matter near solid state (...)
Thursday 12
19:30 - STUDENT EVENT - UPS Quiz Night : Quiz Night More Information
The Undergraduate Physics Society will be hosting its annual quiz night on Thursday 12th August from 7.30pm at the Tav. Tickets are $10/12 and are available from the third yar lab, the Physics building daily from 1pm to 2pm.
Tuesday 17
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Low Enthalpy Geothermal Energy Under our Feet; the W.A. Geothermal Centre of Excellence's Projects in the Perth Metro Area More Information
Metropolitan Perth sits above rocks of the Perth Sedimentary Basin. These rocks have significant moderate temperature geothermal waters at economically feasible depths associated with moderate to high natural hydraulic permeability aquifers. While not quite as attractive as regions near active (...)
Tuesday 24
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Effect of disorder studied with ferromagnetic resonance for arrays of sub-micron Permalloy discs More Information
There is currently an intense interest in the magnetic properties of nanoscale and sub-micron discs of low aspect ratio. Such discs have potential applications in data storage, magneto-electronics and spintronics, and medicine, and are otherwise viewed as simple model systems by which the (...)
Thursday 26
12:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : A Collaboration based on Red Sprites More Information
Peter McLeish will discuss the nature of his collaboration based on Red Sprites.

Red sprites are upper atmospheric optical phenomenon associated with thunderstorms that have recently been only documented using low level television. The first images of a sprite were taken in 1989 and from (...)
Tuesday 31
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Black holes at the Large Hadron Collider More Information
Brane world models in string theory suggest that our universe is a slice, or ‘brane’, of a higher-dimensional space-time. One consequence of these models is that the fundamental energy scale of quantum gravity may be within reach of current particle physics experiments. In particular, copious (...)

Wednesday 01
18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Black holes at the Large Hadron Collider : Women in Physics Public Lecture More Information
String theory suggests that our universe is but a slice of some higher-dimensional space-time. In this talk I will discuss why one consequence of these models is that copious numbers of mini black holes might be formed by collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. We will describe how (...)
Monday 06
15:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : A New Paradigm for Exchange Bias in Polycrystalline Films More Information
The phenomenon of exchange bias has remained something of a mystery since it was discovered in core-shell particles in 1956 [1]. Over the subsequent years many different models have been proposed to explain this effect, most of which agree with some experimental data that can be found in the (...)
