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 (...)
Tuesday 14
13:00 - SCHOOL'S EVENT - Something Big is on the Horizon : Meet Australian Astronaut Andy Thomas at UWA - FULLY BOOKED!! Website | More Information
The University of Western Australia is delighted to offer high school students and teachers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet Australia’s only astronaut, Dr Andy Thomas, at two special student and teacher events in September.

At the students event, we are able to invite up to 20 (...)

15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Aiming for 18 significant figures with a doubly forbidden line in neutral mercury More Information
The Observatoire de Paris has a long history of time keeping and today is one of the leading contributors to Coordinated Universal Time. A new clock on-the-block is that based on neutral mercury atoms. It is one of a new genre of atomic clocks that confines the neutral atoms in the Lamb-Dicke (...)
Wednesday 15
14:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Modeling for the Fast Ignition Approach to Laser Fusion Energy More Information
Laser Fusion was first proposed in the early 70s as a means for the extraction of energy from the burn of thermonuclear hydrogen fuels in the laboratory. Long-pulse (nanosecond,) time-shaped laser beams would be used for the adiabatic compression of micrograms deuterium-tritium microspheres, and (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : The Environmental Restoration Program at Los Alamos National Laboratory More Information
In 1945, as a result of research and development carried out at Los Alamos, two nuclear bombs were dropped on Japan, successfully ending the Second World War. During the feverish activity for the creation of these devices, scant attention was paid to the legacy of waste materials hastily produced (...)
Tuesday 21
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Metropolis methods applied to Bayesian geologic inversions More Information
http://tinyurl.com/ydqk7nc http://tinyurl.com/yl79g3g

The uncertainty and risk associated with subsurface geology is an important input to business decisions in the petroleum and mining industry. Combination of various remote sensing measurements (seismic, E&M, magnetic, gravity, etc (...)
Friday 24
13:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : On magnetophoretic mobility of biological cells More Information
We have developed instrumentation to measure magnetic properties of a single live cell by measuring its motion in physiologic electrolyte solutions in strong magnetic fields and gradients. A highly automated and rapid process of cell image track acquisition and computer-aided tracking velocimetry (...)
Thursday 30
12:00 - EVENT - Bringing Sunshine - Lunch for Leukaemia : Fundraising Luncheon for the Leukaemia Foundation of Western Australia Website | More Information

The Leukaemia Foundation of WA is ‘Bringing Sunshine’ to patients and their families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. Having lunch with friends or family is something we usually take for granted, however for people being treated for blood (...)

18:15 - LECTURE - 2010 Gravity Lecture : LIGO-Australia and the Search for Gravitational Waves More Information
The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) aims to observe gravitational waves of cosmic origin. These waves were first predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity in 1916 and they may unveil the dark side of the universe, including black holes and the big bang itself (...)
