ERA is a digital repository of original research produced at The University of Edinburgh. The archive contains documents written by, or affiliated with, academic authors, or units, based at Edinburgh that have sufficient quality to be collected and preserved by the Library, but which are not controlled by commercial publishers. Holdings include full-text digital doctoral theses, masters dissertations, project reports, briefing papers and out-of-print materials.

Information on current research activity including staff, projects and publications is available via the Edinburgh Research Explorer.


  • Charge density waves and superconductivity in U6Fe 

    Whitley, William George (The University of Edinburgh, 2016-06-29)
    U6Fe has the highest superconducting transition temperature TSC ~ 4 K out of all of the U-based compounds. Unusually, the Pauli limit (1:84TSC = 7:36 T) is less than the observed critical field for both the a and c axes ...
  • Generation of synthetic spindle checkpoint signals 

    Yuan, Ivan (The University of Edinburgh, 2016-06-28)
    The spindle checkpoint ensures proper chromosome segregation by monitoring kinetochore-microtubule interactions: unattached kinetochores recruit checkpoint proteins that combine to form a diffusible inhibitor which delays ...
  • Exploring students’ and teachers’ perceptions about engaging in a new law programme taught in English in an Italian university 

    Robinson, Isabel Alice Walbaum (The University of Edinburgh, 2015-07-03)
    This case study investigates teachers’ and students’ perceptions about engaging with the disciplinary and linguistic demands of a new Italian law programme, launched for the first time in academic year 2006-2007, taught ...
  • Mapping parallelism to heterogeneous processors 

    Chandramohan, Kiran (The University of Edinburgh, 2016-06-27)
    Most embedded devices are based on heterogeneous Multiprocessor System on Chips (MPSoCs). These contain a variety of processors like CPUs, micro-controllers, DSPs, GPUs and specialised accelerators. The heterogeneity of ...
  • Borane transfer reactions 

    Taylor, Nicholas (The University of Edinburgh, 2016-06-28)
    Lewis base borane adducts (LB·BH3) constitute a well-known class of molecules with a number of diverse applications, including use as protected phosphines. The kinetics and thermodynamics of borane transfer reactions ...
