Industrial and Econo-physics

Physics students in their second year at Lincoln gave fantastic feedback regarding the Industrial and Econophysics module. This module is intended to showcase some of the industrial applications of physics, with a focus on the finance sector towards the end of the module.

A series of guest lectures were given by local industrialists from a range of industries in which physics is a primary tool. Our local industrial partners include Micrometric Ltd, Teledyne e2v (UK) Ltd and the Radiotherapy Physics department at Lincoln County Hospital. In addition to the guest lectures, students were given the opportunity to visit the relevant industrial sites around the city of Lincoln.

Students were also given a case study assignment about Diamond Light Source synchrotron facility which they had visited the previous year. The students prepared a professional-quality poster on the subject matter from one of the guest lectures, and presented their work to their peers as well as to staff from the School of Mathematics and Physics.
