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

Ofcom reported that amongst E5 countries the UK is leading the way in terms of mobile broadband connectivity and ordering goods or services online. But with regards to citizens interacting with public authorities online, the UK ranks second last. Not only is the UK lagging behind its European colleagues, there is also a lack of skills within the public sector to significantly improve the UK position. Respondents in a survey from the National Audit Office suggested that there was a skills gap in every major area needed to transform public sector digital and technology, including design, delivery and technical skills.
