UCD School of Physics

Scoil na Fisice UCD


During a period of significant change, the school has recruited more than 10 academic staff since 2004, creating a dynamic, international group researching across a wide range of disciplines within Physics. These include: Astrophysics (4), Atomic, Molecular and Laser Plasma Physics (6), Computational Biophysics (4), Condensed Matter Theory (1), Experimental NanoScience (5), Experimental Particle Physics (1), General Relativity Theory (1) and Radiation Physics (2) (the numbers of academics in each area is shown in brackets). In addition, the school has seen a dramatic growth in the number of post-doctoral researchers, mainly as a result of the growth in external research funding over the last two to three years.
