Tenth annual Barkla lecture - Professor Katherine Freese
Professor Katherine Freese, Director of the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita, Stockholm) delivered the tenth Barkla lecture on 5th November 2015.
The title of her talk was "Dark Matter in the Universe".
The University of Liverpool, and the North-West in general have had a long tradition in nuclear and particle physics research, starting with Rutherford and Chadwick, who discovered the nucleus and the neutron, and continuing to the present day with the work on particle physics detectors, accelerators and theoretical studies.
The aim of the Barkla lecture series is to expose the experimental and theoretical physics research activities at the university to the wider university audience and beyond, and to attract students to this area.
