REF2014 ranked us 2nd in the UK for the number of research outputs judged to be of internationally leading (4 star) quality, with 28% of our publications in this top bracket.

Research in the Physics Department is structured into four divisions. Each division has a world-class team of research-active staff at the forefront of research in their respective fields. We place great importance on bringing this world-leading research into our teaching, and into our schools and public engagement programme.
