Theory of Fundamental Interactions at the Nanoscale
ID: 307755
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-06-30
At the heart of this multi-disciplinary research project lie two emerging prominent theoretical models developed by the applicant in the past 12 months, which underpin the fundamental interactions taking place at the nanometre scale. In 2010, the applicant proposed a general ...

Self-Enforcing E-Voting System: Trustworthy Election in Presence of Corrupt Authorities
ID: 306994
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
"This project aims to develop a new generation of e-voting called the “self-enforcing e-voting system”. The new system does not depend on any trusted authorities, which is different from all currently existing or proposed e-voting schemes. This has several compelling advantag...

Strain Localisation in Magma
[PROJECT] SLIM - Strain Localisation in Magma
ID: 306488
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-06-30
The tendency of geomaterials to localise deformation is a measure of “the fragility of the Earth” – a threshold to the occurrence of geological hazards. At volcanoes, the remarkable, unpredictable and alarming occurrence of eruptions, switching from low-risk effusive to high-...

Biomolecular Hydrogels – from Supramolecular Organization and Dynamics to Biological Function
ID: 306435
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Certain proteins and glycans self-organize in vivo into soft and strongly hydrated, dynamic and gel-like supramolecular assemblies. Among such biomolecular hydrogels are the jelly-like matrix that is formed around the egg during ovulation, mucosal membranes, slimy coats produ...

Polariton condensates: from fundamental physics to quantum based devices
ID: 308136
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Polaritons are quantum superpositions of light and matter which combine appealing properties of both: the high coherence of photons and the strong interaction (non-linearities) of electrons. With the report of their Bose-Einstein condensation in 2006, they stand as one of the...

Transversal Multilinear Harmonic Analysis
ID: 307617
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
This proposal consists of two intimately related programmes. The aim of Programme 1 is to make major contributions to the celebrated restriction theory for the Fourier transform and combinatorial problems of Kakeya-type using emerging multilinear techniques. The aim of Progra...

Measuring the Lumpiness of Dark Matter With Tidal Streams
ID: 308024
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
The two main characteristics of Dark Matter are its puzzling ubiquity and its omnipotent evasiveness. To create galaxies, stars and planets, we need Cold Dark Matter to enhance minuscule primordial density fluctuations and provide seeds for the ordinary matter to cluster arou...

Solvated Electrons in Water: Structure, Dynamics and Reactivity at Interfaces
ID: 306536
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
Understanding the solvation of an ion at the molecular level is a cornerstone of physical chemistry. For anions in water, the interactions are particularly complex, with some simple anions exhibiting surface activity. The most fundamental aqueous anion is the hydrated electro...

Accelerated design and discovery of novel molecular materials via global lattice energy minimisation
ID: 307358
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
The goal of crystal engineering is the design of functional crystalline materials in which the arrangement of basic structural building blocks imparts desired properties. The engineering of organic molecular crystals has, to date, relied largely on empirical rules governing t...

Two-body dynamics in general relativity: the self-force approach
ID: 304978
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
"The gravitational two-body problem is a longstanding open problem in General Relativity, dating back to work by Einstein himself in the 1930s. Unlike in Newtonian theory, bound binary orbits in relativity are never periodic: the system loses energy via emission of gravitatio...
