This week’s seminar will be by Renske Smit (LJMU), on “An ALMA view of galaxies in the Epoch of Reionization” Abstract: In the past decade hundreds of galaxy candidates have been identified in the Epoch of Reionization (EoR), selected from their rest-frame UV light. Only a handful of these sources, however, have spectroscopic redshift determinations […]
This week’s astrophysics seminar will be by Julie Wardlow, on “Understanding the environments of extreme dusty star-formation in the distant Universe” Abstract: In recent years the high-redshift Universe has been increasingly opened to scrutiny at far-infrared wavelengths, where cool dust emission from star-formation dominates. The dusty star-forming galaxies (DSFGs), selected at these wavelengths likely represent […]
We’re pleased to announce the first of a new series of “Physics Research Bites”, a short “bring-your-own-lunch” seminar series aimed at students wishing to know more about the exciting research being undertaken here in Leicester. Jointly hosted by PhySoc, AstRoSoc and the Physics Community Team, these informal seminars will feature researchers from across the School, […]
This week’s seminar will be by Nienke van der Marel (Leiden) on “Novel views on planet formation and dust evolution: connecting protoplanetary disk demographics with exoplanets, debris disks and exoplanet atmospheres.“ The Teams link can be found iat the bottom of this post. Please get in touch if there are any access issues (ab520). Abstract: […]

Dr Rebeca Garcia Lopez (UCD) The inner regions of protoplanetary disks: an interferometric view. Find the link to the Teams connection in Astrophysics Group>Seminars. Abstract: A first step towards understanding planetary formation is the characterisation of the structure and evolution of protoplanetary discs. Although the large scale disc is understood in some detail, very little […]
