Organizers Jorma Louko, Silke Weinfurtner, and Cisco Gooding are pleased to announce a one-day "Measuring Temperatures and Harvesting with Unruh Detectors in the Lab" workshop in Nottingham during Bill Unruh's visit. Our approach is to bring theorists and experimentalists together to discuss a joint way forward towards Unruh detection from an analogue gravity system, with the focus on both ultra-cold atoms and superfluid helium systems.
QSimFP announced that the 1st QSimFP Annual Workshop will be held from 19th-21st September 2022 in London, at the Institute of Physics and at the Science Gallery London at King’s College London.
Join us at this in-person event open to all PGRs, academic and research staff from the Schools of Mathematical Sciences, Physics & Astronomy and the Faculty of Engineering.
QSimFP presented a novel interferometric detection method applied to fluid interfaces as the NQTP Showcase in London, 2021.
We are carrying out research in the field of gravity simulators for early universe and black hole processes. For this we have identified and developed a series of novel experiments focussing on the control, manipulation and detection of fluid and superfluid interfaces. The experimental efforts are paired with high-level modelling support to reproduce in the laboratory some of the most ill-understood processes in our Universe, and make concrete predictions, transferable to cosmology, astrophysics and fundamental physics.Learn more
The combination of deep fundamental-science goals and cutting-edge technology puts us in a natural position to communicate to the general public the excitement and importance of fundamental research. For example, the Black Hole Laboratory in Nottingham has been filmed for the Strip of Cosmos (Discovery channel) and Black Holes - The Edge of All We Know (Netflix) science documentaries. We are currently planning a variety of novel outreach activities. Follow the link below to learn more about our outreach programme and/or to get involved.Learn more
