POST EXAM Tutorial June 2019 (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_2019.pptx. Possible titles/subject areas/supervisors for PH4100 Major Project and PH4110 Research Review Title_list_2019__Research_Review_and_Major_Project_Titles_.xlsx

PH4110 Research Review

As described in the ppt the first task is to make three choices for possible review titles/supervisor, the list of subject area/titles/previous titles can be found here above. Altenatively 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 by email to a.casey@rhul.ac.uk Research_Review_PH4110_2019_Form.docx

  • Submit your three choices for Research Review supervisors by 8 pm Friday 7th June, for allocation on Monday 10th.
On Monday 10th June you will be assigned your review supervisor, your next task is to agree on a title; write a brief (~300 word) summary of what the proposed topic should cover and list at least one paper that is relavant to your topic. Email to a.casey@rhul.ac.uk by Friday 14th June (last day of term). This summary is not assessed but ensures that you have a starting point for your review activities.

Below is an example of what is required by the 14th June:


Example research review summary:

Title: GaN in application to high efficiency light sources.

Summary: This paper will be looking at the use of Gallium Nitride in high efficiency LED light sources. 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.

Paper: Layered boron nitride as a release layer for mechanical transfer of GaN -based devices ,Yasuyuki Kobayashi, Kazuhide Kumakura, Tetsuya Akasaka, Toshiki Makimoto, Nature 484, 223-227(2012).


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 article

It is recommended that you use Latex to write your review, most of the articles that you have been reading for your review would have been prepared using Latex. Journals produce Latex style files and information for the authors on how to prepare their articles such that they 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 previous years can be found here:
