21 JunVictor Ochoa-Gutierrez has been awarded a 2022 Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, for his potential contributions to the field of optics, photonics or related field.
10 JunA collaboration with colleagues at the Medical University of Innsbruck has realised a technique to measure directly torques in the atto (10-18) Newton meter range. Such tiny torques are directly relevant for microscope-based measurements of cells and similarly sized bodies.
24 MayProfessor Christine Davies, OBE, FRSE, FInstP, Professor and Head of the Particle Physics theory group, University of Glasgow, is awarded the RSE/Lord Kelvin Medal.
We are proud of our record in both research and teaching. For several years the School has ranked in the top quartile of Russell Group UK Physics Departments in terms of our research income per academic FTE, and for many years the School has consistently scored highly for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey and other student barometers.
Our undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses and degree programmes are accredited by the Institute of Physics.
Studying with us offers you a fundamental understanding of the way the universe works, brings you to the forefront of technology, and provides the opportunity to work in world-leading research groups. Our outstanding research was recognised in the latest REF (2021) when 99% of our research was evaluated as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
