A Bayesian inference approach to solving Poisson equation for 3D vector fields (Advert ref: RPG24-R/EE/MPEE/REGNIER)

Overview of the project. This project is being offered as part of the Leverhulme Trust grant awarded to Northumbria University entitled “A stochastic approach to solar magnetic field extrapolations”. Read more

Identification and classification of coherent flow structures in the plasma of the Sun’s photosphere

The Sun is a star with a cyclic magnetic activity that can impact all the solar system. Thus, the solar magnetic field can interact with the Earth's magnetic field, permitting the entrance of energetic particles in the upper atmosphere, affecting technological devices, telecommunications and human health.

A long-term variability study of young stars: Periodicity, hot spots, accretion and early evolution at the time of planet formation

Young stars are variable due to the processes happening on the star and its protoplanetary disk at the time of planet formation. The star-disk connection holds the clues to several open questions including rotational evolution, the origin of our Solar System and the feasibility of habitable planets. Read more

Making High Efficiency Flexible Solar Cells

Perovskite based solar cells have the advantages of highly efficient conversion of sunlight into electricity. However, at present there are challenges in making solar cells from these materials. Read more

Untangling Minor Planet Families

The Japan/New Zealand/US Microlensing Observations in Astrophysics (MOA) collaboration has been engaged with the detection of exoplanets via gravitational microlensing of over 25 years. Read more

High-speed astrophysics with ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM are high-speed optical cameras that can take hundreds/thousands of CCD images per second simultaneously in three/five colours, respectively. Read more

Development of Dispatchable Solar PV Systems Based on Hierarchical Solar Forecasting

Solar photovoltaic (PV) energy is becoming a vital source in power grids for energy harvesting. Nonetheless, as it is perceived as a variable resource, PV power raises grid integration concerns due to the difficulty to control and dispatch that energy. Read more

Next-Gen Photovoltaic Forecasting: Leveraging Machine Learning for Energy Optimization
