Supervisor(s): 

Julian Berengut
Our group maintains a diverse theoretical physics program aimed at testing the Standard Model, searching for new particles, and applying many-body atomic physics calculations to new experiments and new technologies. We have a strong support network, including P

I am a theoretical physicist working at the interface of particle physics and cosmology.  I offer projects on topics from < 10^-32 seconds to 13.8 billion years after the big bang.  Keywords include: neutrinos, axions, dark matter, dark energy, cosmic microwave background, large-scale structur

Supervisor(s): 

Victor Flambaum

Current research interests of our group are in the following areas:

1. Search for non-gravitational effects of Dark matter and Dark energy in atomic and astrophysical phenomena.

Supervisor(s): 

Jan Hamann

I am offering projects in theoretical cosmology.  Possible topics include cosmic inflation, Big Bang Nucleosynthesis, the cosmic microwave background or the formation of the Universe’s large scale structure.

My research is fully integrated into the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies (http://www.fleet.org.au) and is focused on two areas.

1. Quantum transport in topological materials

.Quantum point contact (QPC) is a one dimensional constriction in a two dimensional electron gas. Conductance of a QPC has been known to be quantized in units of G0 = 2e^2/h since 1988 [1,2].

It is suggested to study the behaviour of the vacuum state for vector bosons (spin S=1) in the homogeneous static external field.
