Dr Carolina Costa – Department of Mechanical and Construction Engineering at Northumbria University Clean energy for all is part of the global sustainable development goals. Therefore, increase the share of renewable energy and improve the energy efficiency of different systems are topics of great interest. In this context, thermal energy storage technologies can play an important role in the renewable energy systems by facilitating temporal shifts to meet electricity and heat demands. During this lecture, we will introduce the use…

Dr Madeleine Combrinck – Department of Mechanical and Construction Engineering at Northumbria University   Commercial aircraft cruise speed is currently limited by a condition referred to as the buffeting boundary. In this region of transonic flow, instabilities are causing significant fluctuations in the lift properties in certain situations. Addressing the instabilities will result in safer, faster and more economical flights. In this talk we will discuss the origin of the instabilities, the effects is has on the aircraft wing structure and…

Dr Pietro Maiello – Department of Mathematics Physics and Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University  The SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) is a remarkable piece of equipment used widely in materials science to characterise and explore the micro/nanocosm through the use of accelerated electrons. The technique was developed nearly 90 years ago and today it is extensively used in many fields of science and technology as tool to better understand, develop and explore the small world around us not accessible by our senses.

Professor Graeme Gooday & Emily Rees – School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science – University of Leeds One hundred years ago, the very first Women’s Engineering Society (WES) was founded in Britain – a society which is still active today – yet Britain now has one of the lowest rates of women engineers in Europe. This lecture will debunk the myth that women have always been excluded from engineering by highlighting the rich and varied contributions of women to…

Dr Dominika Zabiegaj – Department of Mechanical and Construction Engineering at Northumbria University  The role of interfacial science is to design materials with unique properties by manipulating their physicochemical properties. In this talk Dominika will talk about a few of these materials with a focus on foams and emulsions as templates to achieve porous media with many applications: from water purification to bone replacement and bio-infiltration.

Dr Juna Sathian – Department of Mathematics Physics Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University   Lasers are used everywhere from CD players, industrial cutting to laser eye surgery. But before the laser, there was the maser and it produces microwaves instead of light in a laser. However, due to its extreme cooling requirement maser never became as widespread as the laser. In this lecture, we will explore briefly the history of laser and maser followed by the recent developments in solid-state laser…

Dr Stephane Regnier – Department of Mathematics Physics and Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University    The Sun is our closest star and plays an important role in the evolution of the planets and life in the solar system. During this lecture, we will look at how the Sun’s magnetic field is key to understanding this, producing magnetic explosions (solar flares) that expel high-energy particles into the solar system and interact with the Earth’s magnetic shield (magnetosphere). Further, we will discuss how physicists…
