POST EXAM Tutorial May 2017 (3rd year MSci students going into 4th year)

PH4100 Major Project and PH4110 Research Review both begin before the Moodle Roll-over and your registration onto the 4th year programme. This twiki page is meant to bridge the gap until you have access to the moodle page later on.

The post exam tutorial is available here PH4100_and_PH4110__introduction_2017.ppt.

PH4110 Research Review

As described in the ppt the first task is to make three choices for possible supervisor/review titles, the list of subject area/titles/previous titles can be found here Title_list_2017__Research_Review_and_Major_Project_Titles_.xlsx. You can choose any topic for a review but you need to get approval from a potential supervisor before submitting it as a choice.

Use the first week of the post exam period to make contact with the supervisors to inform your choice. The choice is made by completting and submitting the following word document via turnitin PH4110_2017_Form.docx

Focusing on the efficiency and future potential, of production using different foreign substrates and techniques as well as production using Gallium Nitride as the substrate. This review will cover the latest advancements in the technology and will seek to give a strong case for which substrate and technique has the most potential for future production.

Searching for Papers

Information that will help you to search for and access the articles you need for your review, including details of how to get an inter library loan are contained in this document, Article_Search.docx

WRITING THE REVIEW

It is not compulsory to use Latex but most of the articles that you have been reading for your review would have been prepared using Latex.

Information about how to install and use Latex can be found here:

http://www.rhul.ac.uk/physics/informationforcurrentstudents/computerskills/latex/latex-windows.aspx

Journals produce Latex style files and information for the authors on how to prepare their articles such that that confirm to the standard required by the journal. One such style file that would be appropriate for a research review article is that adopted by the AIP journal Reviews of Modern Physics. Using this as an example will ensure that your document will reach the presentational standard required.

Here is the style guide for the Journal Review of Modern Physics, rmpguide.pdf, further information including downloads of the REVTEX style file that will make a latex document conform to the same rules can be found here:

http://journals.aps.org/rmp/authors

Two examples of excellent reviews from this year can be found here:
