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.

DHI are reviewing potential datacentres for colocation services in phase 2 of DHI operations. The DataVita Fortis datacentre has been visited by DHI staff and its proximity to DHI makes it an ideal datacentre for the DHI to use. DataVita Fortis, located in the greater Glasgow area (ML6 8NW), is a colocation data centre that is carrier neutral. Carrier neutral (or network neutral) datacentres are datacentres that allow interconnection between multiple telecommunication carriers and/or colocation providers. A benefit of carrier-neutral datacentres is that they allow users the ability to switch providers without physically moving their server’s location.
