Introduction to Physics Research

Established in 2005, the Division of Physics and Applied Physics at SPMS has grown into a world-class centre for research in physics and applied physics. We have 100+ research staff and 100+ graduate students, led by a young and dynamic faculty consisting of leading experts in their research fields. We are particularly strong in four areas of research:

  1. Photonics
  2. Quantum Information
  3. Condensed Matter Physics
  4. Soft Condensed Matter, Fluid, and Biological Physics

Our division has been highly successful in attracting competitive research funding, and our researchers publish regularly in top scientific journals; click here for a selection of recent high-impact papers.
