The work in the Photon Physics group covers areas as diverse as new sources of low energy lighting, solar cells, medical and biological uses of lasers through to fundamental atomic and molecular physics. We use a wide range of light sources for our work, employing photons ranging from THz, IR, visible and UV lasers to vacuum ultraviolet light. We also have a significant programme of work where laser and synchrotron radiation are being combined.
Where to find us
The Photon Physics Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy is based in the Photon Science Institute. This Institute is located in a new 4-storey building which houses state of the art facilities for the study of photon science. The Institute houses researchers from many disciplines from across the University in a research environment unique in the UK.
