Description

Overview
Our Advanced Physics MSc programme aims to equip you with key skills you need for employment in industry, public service or academic research.
Reflecting the research strengths and specialisms of Loughborough's Department of Physics, the Advanced Physics MSc programme combines compulsory modules in superconductivity and nanoscience with options that include quantum computing and solid state physics.
The aim of the Advanced Physics MSc is to equip you with key skills needed for employment in industry, public service or academic research. You will explore very diverse modules which will allow you to apply and communicate your knowledge of Materials Science via the development of an individual project essay, in which you will consider a particular aspect of physics and gain experience in conducting a piece of original applied research.
Your research project will be devoted to one of several topical areas of modern physics including high-temperature superconductivity, terahertz semiconductor and superconductor electronics, quantum computing and quantum metamaterials, and physics of extreme conditions.
We are consistently rated as a top 30 UK science department in national league tables. 70% of our staff research is rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ (REF 2014).
Experimental facilities include pulsed laser deposition, atomic force microscopy, Raman scattering and X-Ray diffraction. Our departmental observatory has a 16-inch equatorially-mounted Meade telescope and other astronomical equipment.
