We're at the international forefront of modern physics. We're making major contributions to fundamental science, and we're having an exceptional impact on industry.
In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), our Department of Physics was rated the number one department in the UK, ahead of Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College.
Our research publications were ranked 4th, with 93% of our submissions rated world-leading or internationally excellent.
Our research is strongly supported by investment in infrastructure.
Advanced research laboratories for several of our groups have recently opened in the University's Technology & Innovation Centre.
We've also opened a new 3-storey wing in the John Anderson Building, as part of a £13M investment programme in Physics.
We're developing technologies from basic physics that have the potential to revolutionise healthcare in the future, or could help to solve the energy crisis. Many of our researchers have received national and international medals and awards in recognition of their contributions to science.
