Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

A high-temperature superconducting first-order axial gradiometer with thick film YBa2Cu3O7-delta pick-up loops inductively coupled to a thin film YBa2Cu3O7-delta superconducting quantum interference device magnetometer has been designed, fabricated and characterized. The gradiometer has a baseline of 79 mm, an estimated intrinsic system balance of 1:480 for uniform axial magnetic fields and an estimated axial magnetic field gradient sensitivity of 70 fT/(cm root Hz) at 1 kHz, in magnetic shielding.
