Research degrees in Physics and Astronomy
From quarks to galaxy clusters, our universe evolves under a few common physical laws that let us glimpse the distant past and the far future, describe energy and matter at all scales, and create technology that transforms lives.
In the Department of Physics and Astronomy we research and teach an incredible range of physical phenomena and techniques, including:
Our students visit world-class telescopes in NSW and across the globe, conduct research in our own state-of-the-art campus astronomical observatory, and conduct experiments on advanced quantum systems, one atom at a time.
Explore galaxy clusters, deep-space instrumentation, quantum properties, laser solutions and more.
Meet our astronomy and physics experts—international leaders in discovery, innovation and education.
Connect with physics and astronomy through events, outreach and our unique on-campus facilities.
