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 (...)

 April 2011
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 (...)

Saturday 07
9:30 - EXPO - Meet the Railway People Expo : A chance to learn more about a dynamic eco-friendly industry! FREE to attend, register TODAY. Website | More Information
The rail industry is a vital and challenging industry which can offer careers to students of Engineering; Project management; Business/Commerce; Safety, Risk, OHS & Human Factors; Information technology; and spatial sciences.

The Railways Technical Society of Australasia (RTSA) is (...)

18:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - THE VALUE OF EDUCATION - Part 1 : is to build and strengthen one’s inner personality Website | More Information
The word educate is derived from educare (Latin), meaning to draw out, to bring out potential. Educational systems, the world over, are based on thrusting knowledge onto students, instead of drawing it out of them. As a result, students become well informed on one or more subjects. Such education (...)
Thursday 12
18:30 - FREE LECTURE - FREE PUBLIC LECTURE "Huge Science Investment and Future Science in WA" : Learn of the planned LIGO-Australia gravitational wave observatory near Gingin valued at about $300 Million. More Information
Western Australia could soon be home to the biggest international science investment in Australia’s history. This would arrive in the form of a new Advanced Gravitational Wave Observatory, valued at about $300 Million. The observatory would combine the most precise mirrors and the largest vacuum (...)

Monday 04
11:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Temperature Measurement Research at NPL More Information
I will be talking about the NPL's efforts and outlook for the next few years in determining the Boltzmann constant (k) with ~1 part-per-million uncertainty using a resonant acoustic method. This may be of particular interest to some people in Physics as there is currently a measurement of k in (...)
Tuesday 19
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : The unusual magnetic behaviour of Fe100-xCox films on Ir(001) More Information
Magnetic thin films with their magnetic moments spontaneously aligned perpendicular to the film plane are of great interest for their practical applications. This configuration is applied in perpendicular recording media with increased data storage density. New materials with a larger tendency to (...)
Friday 22
14:00 - EVENT - Three Minute Thesis Finals : A competition to find the most engaging 3 minute presentation on a research topic Website | More Information
The 10 most engaging 3 Minute Thesis presenters selected at the UWA semi-finals on 21st July, will compete for prizes and the opportunity to represent UWA at the Australia-New Zealand 3MT competition in September. Please come along to support the presenters and vote for your "People's Choice&qu (...)
Saturday 23

The De Laeter Youth Lecture is organized annually by the WA Branch of the Australian Institute of Physics. It is named in honour of the late Emeritus Professor John De Laeter. Not only was Professor De Laeter one of Western Australia's most noted scientists, but he also had an enormous impact on (...)
Tuesday 09
15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : A new perspective on renormalization: invariant actions, a dynamical DNA More Information
A new perspective on renormalization is taken by use of an iterative wavelet based averaging as suggested by Stephane Mallat. This replaces the band limited Fourier transforms used currently. The result is a hierarchy of fundamental excitations of the system based on the complexity of the (...)

More Information
Over the next decade or so, extremely large, ground-based telescopes will be built to probe the furthest reaches of the universe - back to the earliest times in its evolution, and through its most energetic events. These instruments will span the optical and radio bands of the electromagnetic (...)
