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

12.6 million UK adults lack basic digital skills and 5.9 million have never used the internet before. People who do not use the internet, in comparison to those who don’t, tend to be older, poorer, and more likely to be disabled. These demographics are also at greater risk of poor health and tend to rely most heavily on the NHS. Health inequalities amount to over £5.5 billion in annual NHS healthcare costs. In 2014, 2% of the population reported digital interaction with the NHS Despite 98% of GP’s in England offer online booking 51% NHS Choices users are more confident in dealing with healthcare professionals, with 27% of users making fewer visits to their GP because of visiting the site.
