Physics addresses the most fundamental questions of existence, from the very nature of matter to the origin of the Universe, and from the cosmological to the sub-nuclear. For example, our researchers are using data from JWST to study the atmospheres of exoplanets.

Physics is also pivotal to shaping the technologies of the future and our research spans a wide range of disciplines and is organised around six main themes.
