Towards a national research strategy by Brian Schmidt( )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Australian scientists are continuously making contributions to global research. But how do Australians and our politicians see these contributions, and what do we need to do to allow them to keep occurring? Prof Brian Schmidt argues for a national research strategy: a policy that can bring together industry and academia, to support research now and into the future. Hosted by Robyn Williams

The accelerating universe by Brian Schmidt( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dr. Brian Schmidt was awarded the Nobel Prize for his shared discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe. In 1998, two teams traced back the expansion of the universe over billions of years. The scientists discovered that it was accelerating, a startling discovery contrary to the then-current theory that the universe's expansion should be slowing down. This new understanding suggests that more than 70 percent of the cosmos is contained in a previously unknown form of matter, called dark energy. As the leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, Schmidt describes this historic development and explains how astronomers have used observations to trace our universe back more than 13 billion years, leading them to ponder the ultimate fate of the cosmos

Life, the universe and everything by Brian Schmidt( )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Prof Brian Schmidt shared the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics for research showing the accelerating expansion of the universe. The research of physicist Prof Paul Davies looks at cosmology, quantum field theory, and astrobiology. Between the two of them, their knowledge covers about 90% of the known universe. Tonight they tackle what may constitute the other 10%. Hosted by Phillip Adams
Quasars and the transverse proximity effect by Ragini Singh( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quasars, first identified in the 1960s, have been used as cosmological probes to study the Inter-Galactic Medium. This includes the process of its metal enrichment and how material is clustered at different scales in the high redshift Universe. The effect of quasars on their environment can help shed light on the variability of their luminosity and anisotropies in the geometry of the quasar radiation field. One way to probe the effects of quasars on their environment is through the Transverse Proximity Effect (TPE). The TPE should be visible as a diminution of the Lyman-alpha forest absorption in the spectrum of a background quasar, at a foreground quasar's redshift, when the two quasars are transversely separated by < 5 Mpc. Alternatively, the TPE can also be detected as a local enhancement of the ionising radiation field proximate to the foreground quasar, via the strength of different atomic species in the background quasar's spectrum. This thesis aims to use the CFHTLS data to search for quasar pairs at z > 2.2 having small transverse separations on the sky by using an efficient selection method, which we prove is capable of detecting numerous rare proximate quasar pairs. The best pairs can be used to detect the TPE by analysing the metal lines in the spectrum of the background quasar, a technique demonstrated in this thesis that is superior to simply using the diminution of the Lyman-alpha forest absorption as a detection tool. Such studies can reveal important information regarding quasar lifetimes and opening angles when conducted on a statistically significant scale. We utilise an effective statistical technique, Kernel Density Estimation (KDE), to select quasars from the photometric data sets using the ugriz colour space. The KDE algorithm has been successfully applied to the CFHTLS data, detecting 1,000 quasars at z > 2.2, using the AAOmega spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope. We have detected 40 TPE candidates, with one standout candidate in our sample due to its small angular separation (11.9"), with the foreground quasar at z = 2.23 and background quasar at z = 2.56. We have followed-up this best pair using MIKE (echelle spectrograph) on Magellan. The background quasar's spectrum has revealed two metal absorption systems lying close to the redshift of the foreground quasar (z = 2.23). We have identified absorption features due to HI, CIV, CII, SiIV and SiII in our data. Photoionisation modelling of these absorbers using MAPPINGS III, based on the column densities of the metal lines, has revealed that the absorbers are being ionised by the foreground quasar, i.e. we detect the TPE as an enhancement in the ionisation, above the UV background, proximate to the foreground quasar. The fact that the quasar is affecting both the metal line absorbers which lie within its ionisation region suggests that its radiation cone has a half angle that is quite wide (> 45 degrees). Since the transverse separation between our two quasars is ~100 kpc, we find that the minimum lifetime of our foreground quasar is ~ 0.3 Myr
