The QTFP engagement event will highlight the progress of the awarded projects and explore further collaborations and opportunities, with speakers from across the QTFP programme.
Professor Carlo Barenghi (Newcastle University) is visiting our group on 26-27 January 2023. He will give a seminar talk titled Modelling superflows: the drain vortex on 27 January at 11 am in room C30 (Physics building). Everyone is welcome to attend!
On the 16th of December 2022 there will be the ArtLab opening day 2. The event will take place in the department of Physics at the University of Nottingham, starting from 10.00am with refreshments in the ArtLab.

Interview of our PI Prof. Silke Weinfurtner on Quanta Magazine, check it out!
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
