Astronomy & Astrophysics

Interested in stars and planets, how they live and how they die, and the exotic physics processes that they allow us to explore.

Centre for Fusion, Space & Astrophysics

Focusing on plasma physics applied to the grand challenges of magnetic and inertial fusion power, space physics, solar physics, and astrophysics.

Condensed Matter Physics

Carrying out research across a broad range of fundamental and applied problems in solid state physics and materials science.

Elementary Particle Physics

Researching the fundamental particles of matter and the forces by which they interact.

Medical Physics

Activity in medical physics and imaging research, working in tandem with University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire.

Theoretical Physics

Working on problems in non-equilibrium biophysics, the dynamics of complex fluids, the electronic properties of materials, and quantum information science.

Our Research

Beyond core physics, scientific diversity is indicated by the involvement of many staff in multidisciplinary ventures:
