In a recent STFC newsletter, UK news from CERN, Dr Stephen Hogan describes how he, and a team of international collaborators are investigating the properties of antimatter. The AEGIS experiment at the Antiproton Decelerator, in CERN has been designed to exploit techniques Stephen developed to accelerate antihydrogen atoms in excited states; to transport them and make beams suitable for measurements of the acceleration of antimatter in the Earth's gravitational field.

Open Day for Prospective PhD Students
The Atomic Molecular Optical and Positron Physics group will be holding an Open Day on Wednesday 13 February 2013 at 13:00. Come along and find out more about working towards a PhD in our group! You'll get to hear about our research programs, talk to group members and potential supervisor as well as see our labs.
There are PhD opportunities in theoretical and experimental research in the following areas:
- Cold matter and optical trapping
- Positron and positronium physics
- Quantum effects in biomolecular systems
- Quantum information and quantum computation
- Theoretical molecular atmospheric and astrophysics
- Ultracold quantum gases
- Ultrafast laser spectroscopy and strong laser interactions
For more information on studentship opportunities and the application process, please follow this link. You are strongly encouraged to email potential supervisors directly regarding potential projects and funding.
The Open Day will be held in rooms A1 and E7 located on the Physics building on UCL's main Gower Street Campus. Please see here for further details of how to get to us. The agenda of the day is:
13:00 - 13:30 Introductory talk by Dr Agapi Emmanouilidou and Prof Ferrucio Renzoni (A1)
13:30 - 13:45 Buffet Lunch (E7)
13:45 - 15:30 Poster presentations by research groups (E7)
14:00 - 16:00 Lab tours
In order to know the numbers for catering, please let us know if you will be attending the Open Day by emailing christine. firstname.lastname@example.org as the latest by Tuesday 12 February 2013.
