School of Physics
The School of Physics at the University of Sydney is the leading Physics department in the country, with outstanding staff and students undertaking world-leading teaching and research.
Our 100 staff and 150 postgraduate students conduct research across a vast range of interests from nanoparticles to clusters of galaxies and from theoretical modelling to laboratory experiments. With access to supercomputers, modern laboratory facilities and observatories, locally, nationally and internationally, the School of Physics is the premier environment for physics education and research.
Researchers from the ARC Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) have demonstrated a phenomenon first proposed in 1948, but which had never before been observed experimentally.
Research published in Nature Communications reveals how nanoscale 'diamonds' can light up early-stage cancers in MRI scans
In recognition of Professor Messel's significant contributions to physics, teaching and the pursuit of excellence, the University of Sydney invites you to join us for this special memorial tribute.
