  • Milky Way


    Researchers from the MAGALOPS research project will measure the Milky Way’s magnetic field by using the optical polarisation of starlight. The final model will help in understanding the interplay between the magnetic field, gas and dust.

    Polarisation around Black Holes

    The Event Horizon Telescope is a global effort to construct an Earth-sized virtual radio telescope array that can be used for making pictures and films of two neighbouring supermassive black holes. Detailed theoretical models of black holes will now be needed to correctly interpret these new...

    Quantifying electron-electron forces at the atomic scale

    In this project, researchers will investigate novel correlated electron phases in 2D materials. These phases exhibit unusual superconducting or magnetic behaviour and a better understanding of the role of electron interactions is needed. The research team will therefore use a novel experimental...
