The School has an internationally recognised series of research programmes in astronomy and astrophysics, condensed matter physics (including magnetism, superconductivity, and semiconductors), photonics (including laser physics, optoelectronics, modern optics, and atom-optics), millimetre waves, and theoretical physics. In the most recent research assessment exercise we were awarded a “5” rating.
