The Materials Physics Doctorate is undertaken by a substantial cohort of research students studying in the broad area of condensed matter and materials physics. Master's degree projects (MSc by Research) are also available. Materials Physics students work largely, but not exclusively, within the Condensed Matter Physics and Theoretical Physics research clusters. Most involve multiple experimental and theoretical techniques spread across, Physics research groups, Research Techology Platforms and central facilities such as SuperSTEM, ISIS, Central Laser Facility and Diamond Light Source.

You can get an idea of the kind of cross-disciplinary projects undertaken by many Materials Physics students from our Case Studies.

The course is coordinated by Dr. Gavin Bell with PhD progress monitored through the Department's standard regulations and overseen by the Director of Graduate Studies, Professor Matthew Turner.
