Physicists across the North of England were rejoicing today at the news that they had been chosen to host a prestigious conference on Particle Physics in 2007.
The conference is run every two years by the European Physical Society, said Professor Roger Barlow, of Manchester University. Theyve just had their meeting at the CERN laboratory in Geneva. We persuaded them that our facilities and reputation, together with strong support from the many universities and research labs involved, gave us the edge. Were especially pleased to have done this for 2007, which should see the startup of the new LHC accelerator at CERN, and perhaps the discovery of the Higgs particle
This conference will bring hundreds of the worlds top scientists to the region, staying for a week at the former Commonwealth Games athletes village in Manchester. It shows how the vision of the North as an internationally recognised centre for Science, as outlined by Gordon Brown and John Prescott, is already becoming a reality.

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
The oceans are the largest global heat reservoir. As a result of man-made global warming, the temperature in the global climate system increases; around 90% of...
