Photon Physics

The programme covers research in photoionisation, laser and electron impact excitation experiments; it also has a strong research programme in laser photomedicine, in laser development including fibre lasers, and in non-linear optics; other research groups include the astronomy and astrophysics groups research covers a wide range of observational, modeling, theoretical and technological interests; the biological physics group's research is centred on bio-interfaces, addressing issues such as biophysics conformations of interfacially immobilised proteins and design peptides, surface bio-compatibility, controlled release of plasmid DNA and effects of surface chemistries and topology on vacular cell growth and tissue structuring mediated by extracellular membrane proteins; the condensed matter physics group has an experimental programme studying superfluid helium, and mesoscopic physics; the nonlinear and liquid crystal physics group has a progamme of research in many aspects of liquid crystal physics and in chaos, turbulence, vortices and granular flows; the nuclear physics group has a wide programme including exotic nuclei using radioactive beams; nuclei far from stability using tagging techniques; neutron-rich nuclei produced in fission and laser spectroscopy of rare isotopes.
