Research

Our atomic and molecular matter research portfolio encompasses both theory and experiment.

The Cold atoms for quantum technologies group use laser cooling to prepare samples of  atoms, in order to study their quantized motion and quantum properties.

We use computational techniques to investigate electron collisions with molecules whilst the Molecular clusters group explore photon, ion, and electron-driven processes in molecules and clusters.

Our molecular physics research finds application in many fields, from astrochemistry to environmental physics. We also research the science and applications of plasmas.

We collaborate with colleagues in the School of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences in our research into physics allied to medicine, and with eSTEeM in our physics education research.
