Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

Rohit Chikkaraddy opened the discussion of the Introductory Lecture: Regarding quantifying the chemical enhancement, you showed a systematic change in the SERS enhancement for halide substituted molecules due to charge transfer from the metal. Is the extra enhancement due to an inherent increase in the Raman cross-section of the molecule? How do you go about referencing, as the charge transfer changes the vibrational frequency?
