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. We use a wide range of light sources for our work, employing photons ranging from THz, IR, visible and UV lasers to vacuum ultraviolet light. We also have a significant programme of work where laser and synchrotron radiation are being combined.
