Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Proposals for fundamental physics experiments under weightlessness conditions

Dittus, H. and Lammerzahl, C. and Lockerbie, N.A. (2004) Proposals for fundamental physics experiments under weightlessness conditions. Acta Astronautica, 55 (3-9). pp. 161-167. ISSN 0094-5765

Abstract

The results of a 2-year lasting ESA Topical Team on Fundamental Physics on the International Space Station are presented. The report starts with a short review about the status of fundamental physics and the corresponding theoretical questions and experimental quests. In a further step, the special conditions on the International Space Station (ISS) are related to the experimental requirements. In a last step, experiments are presented which are physically interesting and take essential advantage of the conditions on ISS.
