Our Research

The work in the Photon Physics group covers areas as diverse as new sources of low energy lighting, solar cells, medical and biological uses of lasers through to fundamental atomic and molecular physics. In particular we us a wide range of light sources for our work, the range of photons employed is extensive ranging from THz, IR, visible and UV lasers to vacuum ultraviolet light. Also we have a significant program in which synchrotron radiation is being combined with laser radiation.
