Simulating black holes and quantum gravity with optical lattices

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Unlike the fundamental forces of the Standard Model, such as electromagnetic, weak and strong forces, the quantum effects of gravity are still experimentally inaccessible. Read more

Cosmological Modified Gravity simulations with massive sterile neutrinos

This project would involve setting up a large (>100 Mpc) cosmological simulation in the Modified Gravity (MOND) framework, but supplemented with 11 eV sterile neutrinos to make up the same total dark energy and matter density as in the Lambda Cold Dark Matter (ΛCDM) cosmology. Read more

Effect of bed slope and roughness on the spreading and dilution of gravity currents

  Research Group: Water Engineering and Natural Environment
Gravity current is frequently encountered in natural (e.g. saltwater intrusion in an estuary) and man-made environments (e.g. mining solution; desalination). Read more

Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.

Do magnetic fields matter when it comes to star cluster formation?

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Stars are the candles of the Universe, they light up every single galaxy allowing us to study their structure across the cosmos. Despite their importance, there are still many aspects of the star formation process that remain poorly constrained. Read more

Unlocking the deep-marine stratigraphic record in confined basin-fills

The deep-marine stratigraphic record provides a cryptic archive of palaeoenvironmental change. To unlock this record requires the study of ancient exhumed systems, and improved understanding of sediment gravity flow processes. Read more

PhD / Early-stage researcher (ESR) position - Volcano Geophysics

An early-stage researcher (ESR) position is available in the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol to work on volcano geophysics. Read more

Novel beer brewing processes

Traditional beer production is one of the oldest biotechnology processes, however there is increasingly a demand for further innovation to create new and higher quality product lines as well as improved production economics. Read more

Cryogenic silicon optomechanics

Quantum mechanics has triggered the development of the crucial technology for modern optical precision measurements. lasers. However, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle for the amplitude and phase quadrature of the laser field sets fundamental limits on the precision of the interferometric measurements. Read more

Star clusters and star-forming clouds: finding order in chaos

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
CONTEXT. Interstellar clouds, and the star clusters they spawn, are chaotic systems, due to the non-linearity of the processes that drive their evolution -- viz. Read more
