Plastic Planet
Organised By Cambridge Physics Centre
Tags #Cambridge #Physics #Centre Cambridge
January 19, 2021
Sentences containing search word
Plastic is hitting the headlines with stories about the devastating effect of plastic waste on the environment, with plastic packaging as a particular target
Single-use plastic packaging is now banned in some parts of the world: is this the right response? Looking at the whole system of food packaging, we find that the problem is very complex
Packaging can save huge amounts of resources if used and disposed of wisely, and the carbon footprint of alternatives can be much higher than plastics
in this talk we will examine the wider environmental consequences of using plastics for packaging, and explore some of the alternatives Speaker: Dr Claire Barlow

Dr Megan Argo, University of Central Lancashire in 2020 the Royal Astronomical Society celebrates its 200th anniversary
 From the first meeting, when fourteen gentlemen sat down to dinner at the Freemason’s Tavern in London in January 1820, the Society has grown to a diverse membership of more than 4000 geophysicists and astronomers, both amateur and professional
  Astronomy has come a long way in that time, and our understanding of the Universe has changed fundamentally
 What didn’t we know 200 years ago?  Where is astronomy going next?  Join Megan for a look at some exciting upcoming telescopes and future space missions, and some predictions for what we might discover in the next 200 years

Mark Whalley (institute of Physics) William Herschel is one of the most outstanding figures in the history of astronomy and physics having discovered the planet Uranus and infrared radiation
However, his sister, Caroline, is often overlooked, yet she discovered several comets and was instrumental in William’s work
in this talk we will not only take a whistle-stop tour of the unconventional lives and work of William and Caroline, from Hanover to Bath and then to Slough, but we will look at the historical and social context that enabled such discoveries to be made
This talk will be of interest to anyone with an interest in the history of astronomy and physics, but also to teachers of science wanting to see how science is rooted in the society in which it is produced

Revealing the Unseen – Potential of Quantum Technology Gravity Sensors – A Civil Engineer’s Perspective
Organised By IOP West Midlands Branch

February 2, 2021
Sentences containing search word
Dr Nicole Metje, University of Birmingham It is vital for civil engineers to know not only what hazards lie in the ground, such as pipes, cables and buried mineshafts, but also the condition of the ground, i
whether there are wet patches, soft ground or hidden sinkholes, prior to construction
This aids engineers when designing new buildings or simply breaking ground, e
for streetworks thereby reducing their impact, reducing the risks due to excavation and associated Health & Safety impacts and saving project costs
  Several different geophysical sensing technologies exist to see through the ground, but many rely on transmitting an electromagnetic wave through the ground limiting the signal penetration through the ground to 1-2m
A new generation of gravity instruments based on quantum technology promises to overcome these limitations
A close collaboration between academics in civil engineering and physics at the University of Birmingham together with end-users is exploring the potential of QT gravity gradiometers to reveal the undetectable and trialling these novel sensors in engineering driven applications
This presentation will demonstrate the challenges of using quantum instruments in civil engineering environments, highlight lessons learned to date and indicate the potential of these novel sensors for civil engineers

Tags #IOPGroupEvents #TribologyGroup
February 10, 2021
Sentences containing search word
PPE such as respiratory devices and visors are important tools in the battle against covid-19 infection for medical personnel
However, the prolonged wearing of these PPE causes skin issues including discomfort, irritation and even injury
An important cause of these injuries are the shear forces acting on the skin as a result of friction with the PPE
During the start of the pandemic our research had a focus on providing directly implementable solutions for medical professionals
This included investigating a wide range of commercially available lubricants
More recent work aims to develop longer-term improvements, by both providing guidelines for material selection and generic design of PPE and by developing improved lubricating agents with extended functionality

Sentences containing search word
Is it a square or a circle? Now you know how it can be both depending on how you look at it
Is it a wave or is it a particle? This one is much trickier, and even if you don't have a clue, tricks from game theory such as making a random guess won't help you, especially if you play with a quantum physicist
The answer is the most unexpected, shocking and mind-boggling, not to say bamboozling, ever formulated by Science
in this webinar, Dr
López Carreño will explain why everybody seems to have a different opinion, ever since the times when things didn't even have to be complicated and were just a matter of a few experimental checks, and share his own personal insights on this question that is still as burning today as when it was bringing Newton (the corpuscular guy) to have all the pictures of his wave antagonist, Hooke, destroyed

James Kakalios, professor of Physics at the University of Minnesota and author of the book The Physics of Superheroes
in James’s book, he explores the basic laws of physics, focussing on examples of comic book scenes that can be used to understand the diverse laws of physics from an unusual angle, such as Gwen Stacy's death and Ant-Man's ability to punch his way out of a paper bag
James relates these elements of comic books to principles of physics, such as levers and torque, and in this way covers diverse topics, from mechanics to the quantum world

Designed assembly of colloids at interfaces - fundamentals to applications
Organised By IOP Liquids and Complex Fluids Group

Colloidal particles at liquid interfaces represents a rapidly expanding area of soft matter science
The dramatic growth in interest in these systems has until now been primarily driven by the discovery of multi-phase systems such as emulsions and foams stabilised solely by particle adsorption
However, more recently, there has been a growing realisation that the unique behaviour of colloids at interfaces also provides new exciting opportunities to design the assembly of colloids into dimensionally confined structures in order to create functional nanomaterials, reconfigurable devices and biomimetic systems
The aim of this conference is to bring together the diverse research communities interested in this area, from fundamental soft matter science to applied research in areas such as novel formulations, lab on a chip reactors, nanomaterials for energy, biomaterials, encapsulation and controlled release etc
, in order to cross-pollinate ideas and stimulate new research directions in these fascinating systems
