With more than £24 Million in research income, the Physics Department at Imperial is one of the world’s largest and most successful.  We carry out research over a wide range of experimental and theoretical topics which is supported by government and industrial supporters.  Our research ranges from studies of the fundamental properties of the universe to applied research looking to solve today’s challenges.  There are more than 100 Academic staff, 200 Post-doctoral staff, and more than 400 post-graduate students working on our research activities.  Undergraduate students also have opportunities to work on projects within our research groups.

In 2015 we undertook a review of how we plan our research strategy and have organised our research around four themes.  These research themes comprise researchers from different groups who are collaborating in order to find answers to a wide range of questions.
