Physics Frontiers: From Quarks to Quasars
Research at the physical frontier shapes our worldview and is a major driver of technological progress.
At Maynooth University, we work on high energy physics, fluids, space research and the quantum world. Our research involves the design and realisation of advanced optical instruments for use in space and the analysis of associated data.
Our work in high energy physics involves the study of elementary particles using numerical and analytical quantum field theory. In condensed matter systems, emergent quantum phenomena are studied and applied to quantum information processing.
This research is part of an international collaborative effort that is contributing important concepts and technological developments to sustain the information revolution.
Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact QuarkstoQuasars@mu.ie for more information.
Researchers from Experimental Physics have been key players in the design, build and testing of the exquisitely sensitive receivers at the heart of both the Planck and Herschel satellites
Andrew Kirwan and Dr. Emma Whelan ihave made observations of the young stellar object 244-440 in the Orion Nebula, using the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument at ESO's VLT.
