Photon Physics

A research degree in the Photon Physics group could be in any one of our diverse research areas; from new sources of low-energy lighting, to solar cells, medical and biological uses of lasers, or the study of fundamental atomic and molecular physics.

We have access to a wide range of light sources for our work, ranging from THz, IR, visible and UV lasers, to vacuum ultraviolet light, including a significant programme combining synchrotron and laser radiation.

Our research students gain experience in advanced experimental techniques appropriate to photon generation, photon detection, and the adoption of laser radiation to many different types of experiments.

For a list of the current projects offered for PhD postgraduate study, please take a look at the Project Booklet 2017/18
