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

Last week, the DHI, the local government digital office, the Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare and the Technology Enabled Care Programme organised an event to explore the implications of switching telecare services from analogue to digital. This was a knowledge sharing event as well as an opportunity to discuss the future landscape of telecare in Scotland. The event, held on the 16th of December in Glasgow involved four talks followed by a question and answer session where participants could quiz the panel on matters important to them. There are an estimated 170,000 users of telecare services in Scotland, demonstrating the importance of these services and why they must be enhanced to provide even better care. In 2025, British Telecoms (BT) will switch off all analogue telecare services and so the public switch telephone network (PSTN) will be replaced by digital means between now and 2025. The government expect to have a more solid idea of the work that will take place in that time early next year.
