  • GoLP at the APPLAuSE Workshop 2017

     
    The first edition of the APPLAuSE Workshop was held on January 18th at Centro de Congressos, IST. In this event, the epp PhD students enrolled in the APPLAuSE doctoral program – Giannandrea I, Anton H, Fábio C, Fabrizio DG and Mario G – presented the recent developments of their work in oral and poster presentations. This workshop also hosted an IPFN colloquium by Luis OS, with the title ‘Extreme Plasmas: from surfing at the speed of light to boiling the vacuum’.

  • Fábio C is awarded the 2016 Gulbenkian Prize for Stimulus to Scientific Research

    One of the 2016 Gulbenkian Prizes for Stimulus to Scientific Research in the area of “Earth and Space Sciences” was awarded Fábio C for his project “Multiscale modeling of pulsar magnetospheres”.In this project, Fábio will model pulsar magnetospheres – one the most extreme and exotic environments in the Universe – using advanced numerical tools, capable of solving the self-­consistent collective dynamics of the electron­-positron (e-e+) plasmas surrounding these compact astronomical objects. Moreover, by resorting to ab initio massively parallel simulations, it will be possible to model, for the first time, the formation process of the e-e+ cascades in the vacuum gaps of pulsar magnetospheres due to quantum electrodynamical (QED) processes in a realistic geometry. Understanding the self-consistent dynamics of these e-e+ cascades that supply the pulsar magnetospheric plasma, and bridging this microscopic scale physics with a global, macroscopic model, will allow an identification of the key signatures in the electromagnetic (incoherent and coherent, from the radio to…
