The groundbreaking research consistently produced by the School reflects the quality of our staff and facilities.

We have more than 150 academic and research staff - including two Nobel laureates, Sirs Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov.

Being a large school, our research covers a very rich portfolio over most of the subfields of physics and astronomy, ranging from fundamental areas to interdisciplinary projects that reach beyond the academic subject.

Our facilities are among the best in the UK, and we're constantly investing in the latest technologies in our search for new discoveries.
