The Experimental Physics group at Swansea University comprises academic staff, postdoctoral officers and postgraduate research students. Its work is supported by grants from EPSRC, the EU, The Royal Society, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and various industrial and government sources.
The Theoretical Physics group has thirteen members of staff, with currently four postdoctoral officers and twelve research students. It is the fourth largest particle physics theory group in the UK, and is supported mainly by STFC, but also has grants from EPSRC, the EU, Royal Society and Leverhulme Trust.
The Department received top ratings of 4* and 3* in the 2008 RAE, which classified our research as world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of its originality, significance and rigour. As a world-leading, research-active Physics Department we are organising International Schools, Workshops and Schools at Swansea University and elsewhere.
