October '10: We welcome Jonathan Keeling, new lecturer in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics.
'10: A 2-days Symposium on "Electron Spectroscopy and
Microscopy of Complex Systems" will be held at the School of Physics
and Astronomy, St Andrews, August 30-31, 2010. For more information

Scottish Doctoral Training Centre in Condensed Matter Physics (CM-DTC)
organizes a Summer School on Foundations of Condensed
Matter from Monday 30 August to Wednesday 8 September
Position: Lecturer in Theoretical
Condensed Matter Physics. We are seeking to
appoint an outstanding theoretical condensed matter
Applications from both primarily analytical and primarily numerical
theorists are equally welcome. Closing date: 26 February 2010.
'09: First quasiparticle interference STM data
are published in Nature Physics. This publication is the first from a
collaboration between the University of St Andrews and
University established in 2006.
'09: Andreas Rost et al.
measured the entropy changes associated with the unusual
electronic phase in highly pure Sr3Ru2O7 single crystals. These results
show that the spin nematic state is a true thermodynamic phase (Science 325,
'09: A team of
scientists from Berlin and St Andrews has experimentally confirmed for
the first time the existence of Dirac Strings and monopolar magnetic
excitations in Spin Ice Dy2Ti2O7. The work appears
in Science express.
'09: The anomalous
phase observed in Sr3Ru2O7 is interpreted as the magnetic analogue of a
LOFF phase. This theoretical study by Andrew Berridge et al.
is reported in Physical Review Letters.
'08: New Scottish Doctoral Training Centre for
Condensed Matter Physics revolutionises opportunities for post-graduate
research in St Andrews (see webpage).
Bristol-Toulouse-St Andrews collaboration including Prof. Mackenzie
experiment on high-Tc superconductor. The team's
breakthorugh is described in Nature.
'08: Highly compressed ammonia form an ionic
crystal. The prediction by Dr. Chris Pickard appears in Nature
'08: An angle-resolved photoemission study led by the
ARPES group in St Andrews reveals the complete Fermi surface of Sr3Ru2O7. The
results are presented in Phys. Rev. Lett.
'07: Dr Felix Baumberger wins a highly competitive €1.45M ERC
Starting Grant to build a next generation ARPES system.
Andrews and Cornell join forces in condensed matter physics.
Prof. Sťamus Davis of Cornell University is appointed SUPA
Distinguished Research Professor.
'07: Three PhD students and two new postdocs join St
'07: Chris Pickard's paper
on the structure of solid hydrogen makes the cover of Nature
'07: A collaboration led by
awarded £1.65M from SFC to establish a cutting edge electron
Nematic Fluid paper by Prof. Andy Mackenzie and
appears in Science.
