Six of our second year Physics students (now third year students) attended the 5th Industrial Laser Applications Symposium (ILAS 2017) in Grantham on 22-23 March 2017. This unique 2-day event was organized by the Association of Industrial Laser Users (AILU). It attracted international delegates and speakers to share the latest in laser material processing and was packed with presentations and exhibitions. A great opportunity for our students to make new contacts, expand their network and meet potential employers.
L-R: Neil Main (Micrometric Ltd) together with the students: Niall Garry, George Lindow, Thomas Dodd, Robert Sharp, Harry Finch and Sorcha Hulme at ILAS2017.
Today the University of Lincoln hosted the Lincoln Get Hold of Technology & Science (LiGHTS) festival. Our school presented two exciting activities. Our own astrophysicists, Dr Phil Sutton, told to old and young about recent news from the world of planets and stars. The most young listeners asked the most difficult questions, like what is the shape of two very close stars.
Another activity was about the music of glasses, inspired by the work of famous natural philosopher Edward Delaval, FRS, once the owner of the Doddington hall next to Lincoln. This is a joint project between our experimental physicists Dr Matt Booth and Dr Martin Scheuregger, a lecturer in the School of Fine & Performing Arts at the University of Lincoln.

Today our undergraduate Physics students presented their summer research results at the University’s UROS poster conference (UROS is Undergraduate Research Opportunities Scheme). Physics team was one of the largest in the university while we are the smallest school so far: 3 posters were on Experimental Physics and 3 – on Computational Physics.
Our Physics superheroes of today are:
- Aaron Adams
- Christopher Dickens
- Hannah Thurlbeck
- Niall Garry
- Robert Sharp
- Tom Vale
Their supervisors were: Drs Matt Watkins, Marco Pinna, Fabien Paillusson, Matt Booth and Professor Waqar Ahmed.
