Course Summary

OVERVIEW

Our strong collaborations with UK and international institutions contribute to an excellent environment for top quality research.

  • We lead QuantIC, the UK's four Quantum Technology Hub
  • We host two EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training
  • We are a member of Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA)

Research groups

We cover a wide range of topics, including solar and plasma physics, cosmology and radio astronomy. Much of our research in solar physics concentrates on the theory, diagnostics and observation of solar flares, complementing our work in more general plasma theory and atmospheric plasmas.

Extreme Light

What could you do if you had a camera so fast that is can freeze light in motion? Or a quatum sensing device that can measure the path taken by a single photon with a precision of a single atom? We are developing the techonlogies that will enable new forms of imaging with applications ranging from seeing behind and through walls to quantum microscopy.

Imaging concepts

We conduct research into new imaging techniques at optical and radio-frequency wavelengths and work closely with collaborators in industry, biology and medicine to apply these techniques in real-world applications. Our main research fields are computational imaging, spectral imaging and biomedical imaging, particularly in the retina.

University information

The University of Glasgow is one of four ancient universities in Scotland, founded back in 1451. Alumni include seven Nobel Prize winners, Scotland’s First Minister and a Prime Minister, while Albert Einstein gave a lecture on the theory of relativity there back in 1933. The university has over 7,000 postgraduate students from 140 countries around the world, taking up taught and research degrees. Study options vary from Financial Economics...more
