We recently completed a £12 million refurbishment project at our John Anderson building to develop cutting-edge facilities for advanced laser and plasma physics research.
Only UK institution in all 4 EPSRC Quantum Technology hubs
Home to our Department of Physics, the facility now has a series of specialist bunkers installed – which have seven tonne, 1-metre thick doors.
They house some of the UK’s most powerful lasers which help our scientists to undertake ground-breaking research.
Our academics are already working on the development and application of next generation accelerator technology with industry partners and clients.
Elsewhere in the John Anderson building, work has concluded on the roof replacement and the creation of other, smaller laser labs.
A further renovation of the main building will see the existing façade updated to complement that of the new John Anderson extension.
With work due for completion in March 2018 , the finished design will improve the appearance of this part of the campus.
It also means that we'll deliver an equivalent carbon reduction of 42 tonnes per year. This is in line with Strathclyde's commitment to reduce our carbon footprint by 25% by 2020.
