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 (...)

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
https://tinyurl.com/ydqk7nc https://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 cancers (...)

14:00 - PRESENTATION - Second Life Virtual World Presentation Website | More Information
This is a presentation/demonstration session about how UWA has been and is continuing to use the Second Life Virtual World for a range of activities.

UWA is a finalist in the 2010 Second Life annual Linden Prize competition.

Full report of the University World News site: http:/ (...)

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 (...)
Monday 22
13:00 - SEMINAR - DVCR Lunchtime Seminar Series - Strategies for increasing your publication output More Information
The seminar will provide attendees with tips and advice on setting up a publication strategy to increase publication output of your research activities, ways to improve the quality of your paper(s), leading them through to publication success and answers on your individual questions regarding (...)
Friday 26
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : EM Interferometry; Active Components in Precision Phase Sensitive Detectors; and Applications to Geophysics More Information
Optical, microwave and RF Interferometers have proved to be extremely powerful tools for advanced amplitude and phase measurements. They have been used in multiple state-of-the-art physics experiments, in metrology, in gravitational wave detectors and gravity gradiometers. I will discuss the (...)

Wednesday 09
16:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : GEOMETRY and SIGMA-MODELS More Information
I will try to describe what nonlinear sigma-models are and how they allow the study of geometry. After explaining some physical motivations for the study of these models, I will review actions and symmetries (including supersymmetry) and symmetry algebras. On the math side, I will review Riemannian (...)

Tuesday 08
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Hierarchy of domain wall dynamical processes in perpendicularly-magnetized ultrathin films More Information
Magnetic domain patterns form in perpendicularly-magnetized ultrathin films due to the combination of short-range attractive magnetic exchange interactions and long-range repulsive magnetic dipolar interactions. The dynamics of these patterns, and the domains within them, are described by the (...)
Tuesday 15
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Using the Information in Experimental Observations to Develop and Test Quantitative Models More Information
When quantitative, usually nonlinear, models of observed phenomena are developed they are typically incomplete as many unknown parameters remain. Further to use the model to forecast future behaviour, one must accurately estimate the full state of the system when predictions begin and measurements (...)
Thursday 24
16:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Accuracy limits in quantum chemistry More Information
Over many years of dynamic and energetic development, quantum chemistry turned into a fully mature science able to describe and model molecular systems containing even hundreds of atoms. Its capabilities are continuously growing along with the progress in computer miniaturisation and the (...)

Tuesday 05
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Tuning the spin dynamics in nanoscopic structures More Information
Current condensed-matter research strives for ever declining system sizes and faster probing techniques. This goes with the impressive capability of the controlled synthesis of materials allowing for new functionalities such as the control of magnetism with electric fields and vice versa. The (...)
Wednesday 06
13:00 - TALK - UWA Careers Centre - Bureau of Meterology Employer Talk : Physics, Maths, atmospheric science and Ocean & Climate Science students - Find out more about career opportunities with the Bureau of Meterology Website | More Information
We are inviting all undergraduate, post graduate, and recent graduates, from Physics, Maths, atmospheric science and Ocean & Climate Science disciplines to come and find out about the exciting career opportunities available with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

18:30 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Public Lecture : Light … what is it, and what is it good for? More Information
There is something so immediately special about light that makes it fascinating. My daily exploitation of the weird properties of light emphasises its intrinsic strangeness and usefulness. This talk is intended to discuss and demonstrate some of these strange behaviours and to introduce you to some (...)
