Student difficulties regarding symbolic and graphical representations of vector fields (2017)
Journal Article
Bollen, L., van Kampen, P., Baily, C., Kelly, M., & De Cock, M. (2017). Student difficulties regarding symbolic and graphical representations of vector fields. Physical Review Physics Education Research, 13(2), doi:10.1103/PhysRevPhysEducRes.13.020109

The ability to switch between various representations is an invaluable problem-solving skill in physics. In addition, research has shown that using multiple representations can greatly enhance a person’s understanding of mathematical and physical con...

Optical diagnostics of laser-produced aluminium plasmas under water (2017)
Journal Article
Walsh, N., Costello, J. T., & Kelly, T. J. (2017). Optical diagnostics of laser-produced aluminium plasmas under water. Applied physics. B, Lasers and optics, 123(6), doi:10.1007/s00340-017-6754-3

We report on the findings of double-pulse studies performed on an aluminium target submerged in water using Nd:YAG laser pulses. Shadowgraphy measurements were performed to examine the dynamic behaviour of the cavitation bubble that eventually forms...

Time resolved anisotropic emission from an aluminium laser produced plasma (2017)
Journal Article
Wubetu, G. A., Fiedorowicz, H., Costello, J. T., & Kelly, T. J. (2017). Time resolved anisotropic emission from an aluminium laser produced plasma. Physics of Plasmas, 24(1), 013105. https://doi.org/10.1063/1.4973444

The polarisation anisotropy of the emission from a laser produced aluminium plasma has been studied using time and polarisation resolved spectroscopy at various background pressures of air. A Wollaston prism was used to resolve the emission from the... Read More about Time resolved anisotropic emission from an aluminium laser produced plasma.
