Introduction to ISIS By Dr Chris Frost The image below shows some of the physicists who pioneered the research that allowed ISIS to be developed and used. The Quantum Scale Neils Bohr and Albert Einstein were not altogether happy with what they were finding out. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niels_Bohr Niels Henrik David Bohr (7 October 1885 – 18 […]Read more "Particle Physics Masterclass 2015"
Fundamentals of Particle Physics By Dr. Emmanuel Olaiya Our Universe is 15 billion years old It contains about 150 billion galaxies Each galaxy has around 300 billion stars This means there is a huge amount of matter containing an unimaginable amount of particles How do we even begin to understand all of matter? How many […]Read more "Particle Physics Masterclass 2015"
Once again Year 13 Rooks Heath Physics students were lucky enough to attend the Particle Physics Masterclass at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Harwell Campus, Didcot https://www.stfc.ac.uk/76.aspx http://harwellcampus.com/ The first activity of the day was a lecture entitled “A very brief guide to accelerators” A very brief guide to accelerators By Dr. Tom Williams We have […]Read more "Particle Physics Masterclass 2015"
Gamma Waves By Kishok Inderaraj 12G Gamma radiation, also known as gamma rays, and denoted by the Greek letter γ, refers to electromagnetic radiation of an extremely high frequency and is therefore made up of high-energy photons. Gamma rays are ionizing radiation, and are thus biologically hazardous. They are classically produced by the decay of […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"
X- Rays by Sambathkumar Uruthirakumar 12G Brief description X-rays are electromagnetic waves which have a very high frequency but a short wave length. They have wavelengths ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometres with corresponding frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3 × E16 Hz to 3 × E19 Hz) and energies in […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12"
Ultraviolet light By Ahlaq Hyder 12V What is ultraviolet (UV) light? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8xx-cfzAeA Ultraviolet (UV) light is a type of electromagnetic radiation and is found in the electromagnetic spectrum between the longer wavelength visible light and the shorter wavelength X-rays. UV light has an approximate wavelength of 1 x E-8 and 4 x E-7 metres . […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"
Visible Light by Shefali Srivastava 12I Brief description Our eyes are sensitive to light which lies in a very small region of the electromagnetic spectrum called ‘visible light’. This light corresponds to a wavelength range of 400-700 nanometres and a colour range of violet through red. The human eye is not capable of seeing waves […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"
