Before the 1960’s, the concept of sending humans to space seemed like wishful thinking. Now, almost 60 years later, NASA is planning to send humans to the Moon again.
A new approach to analyse binary neutron star mergers, developed by Dr. Gregory Ashton and Prof. Dr. Tim Dietrich was published on Nature Astronomy today.
Emily Howling, a final-year physics student from RHUL, has recently been accepted to attend a CERN summer school and is soon moving on to a PhD in the physics department at University of Oxford.
Black holes are some of the most mind-bending objects we have discovered so far. What are they? How do they come to be? How do they work?
Have you ever looked to the stars and wished you knew more about them? Maybe you’ve been looking for a reason to dust off your telescope? Well, now is the perfect time to get involved in stargazing!
To celebrate Women's History Month, the department is looking back at the life and work of one of the most influential female physicists of all time: Marie Skłodowska-Curie.
The STFC grant will allow the Centre at Royal Holloway to continue its growth and its influence in the field both in the UK and internationally for experimental particle physics
Royal Holloway researcher Alexander Deisting, and researchers from the University of Warwick, Xianguo Lu and Garry Backer have been successful with a proposal for STFC Early Technology Development Cap
The development award from the Alan Turing Institute has been given to Royal Holloway researchers Greg Ashton (Department of Physics) and Nicolo Colombo (Department of Computer Science).
Researchers at Royal Holloway have smashed the low temperature record for two dimensional electrons, cooling them below one thousandth of a degree above absolute zero.
Researchers at Royal Holloway have proposed a new system for using superfluid helium 4 in a cavity optomechanical system.
Research on mesoscopic superfluid helium-3 demonstrates the fragility of surface-bound states, an important step in the quest to identify and harness Majorana fermions.
