These pages outline our research interests, expertise and facilities. We encourage you to visit us, to talk to the researchers with whom you are interested to work, and to see the University campus and our research facilities.

Our research is driven by our enthusiasm for discovering, understanding and applying physics, and our aim is to transmit that excitement to you. You can check out our Research CultureLink opens in a new window page to hear from some of our current PhD students. Your research experience will be enhanced by our worldwide research links and through the Midlands Physics Alliance (Birmingham, Nottingham and Warwick Physics Departments).

Deciding to do research in physics and then choosing where to begin are important career decisions. This is true whether you eventually continue within science, or apply the skills you develop to a career outside of physics. Our postgraduates have done both. We hope you will consider Warwick. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us who can help you decide!
