UCD School of Physics

Across Ireland, physics-based businesses contribute more than €7bn to the economy and directly employ over 86,000. As part of its activities, the School provides the graduates and research to support these industries both in Ireland and globally. The impact of the School’s research, as measured using bibliometrics, is 1.7 times the global average. This is delivered by a dynamic, international group of researchers working across a wide range of disciplines within Physics. These include: Astrophysics, Atomic, Molecular and Laser Plasma Physics, Condensed Matter Theory, Computational Biophysics, Experimental NanoScience, Experimental Particle Physics and Radiation/Medical Physics. The school is currently developing a research strategy to focus on Fundamental Physics and on Physics in Health and medicine.
