Group

Centre for Atmospheric Science

The Centre for Atmospheric Science studies processes important to climate change and air quality in the troposphere and lower stratosphere – the lowest 20 km of the Earth’s atmosphere. We are one of the largest such groups in UK universities, and have extensive collaborative links with leading atmospheric sciences groups world-wide.

Photon Science Institute

The Photon Science Institute was established in 2005 to bring together experts from a wide range of scientific fields to foster the development of cross and multi-disciplinary collaborations and provide a dynamic and exciting culture for the progression of new ideas in photon science. The term photon science encompasses all areas where light is used in scientific endeavour — light for science.
