Physics is changing your life.Nadlinger-Single-Atom-in-Ion-Trap_uncropped_0.jpg

At the Department of Physics, our research spans everything from the tiniest particles to the entire cosmos, but we don’t just leave the ideas scrawled on blackboards, hidden on hard drives or tucked into unfathomable scientific papers. We take our research and make it work for you.

Celebrating its 35th year in 2019, the SETI Institute, founded by Astronomers Carl Sagan, Jill Tarter and Frank Drake, has grown from a small research team focused on searching for radio signals beyond our solar system (as a proxy for intelligent civilizations) to an organization of over 90 PhD scientists representing 23 different academic backgrounds, organized into 6 divisions of research. CEO, Bill Diamond, will describe the multidisciplinary structure and research of the Institute, whose mission is to explore, understand and explain the nature and origins of life in the universe.

Finance might appear to be a world away from physics and hence from your life. However, whether you take not of it or not, your daily life is governed by markets. Finance is ultimately the study of markets, specifically seen through a financial lens and the understanding of these has ramifications for everything from how much we are paid to where we live and what is available in the supermarket.

The UK Space Sector is growing rapidly with a target to reach £30Bn p.a. by 2030, with much of this driven by a revolution in small satellites and the increased ability to process, transmit and analyse data. Evolving developments in Earth Observation, solar system exploration, and UK launch facilities contribute to an exciting future in space research and innovation. Oxford University has world-leading research activities in a number of key areas relevant to these opportunities, and is geographically well-placed to engage with the emerging Space Cluster at Harwell.
