Welcome to the department of Physics and Astronomy.

Professor George FraserIt is with great sadness that we announce that our friend and colleague Professor George Fraser, Director of the Space Research Centre, has passed away. 

George was an innovative and talented experimental physicist who was involved in many different research projects in areas ranging from X-ray astronomy to medical imaging and archaeology.  His contributions to the Department’s research, teaching and knowledge exchange programmes will be greatly missed.

Our goals are to provide innovative, high quality teaching, to conduct research of international importance, collaborate with industry and to communicate our enthusiasm for our subject. Whether you are interested in undergraduate study, in postgraduate training, in our research activities or in one of our outreach programmes, we hope these web pages prove to be useful. If you need any further information, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
