F369 MPhys Physics with Photonics (4 Years)
This four-year MPhys Physics with Photonics degree gives a more advanced understanding of optics and laser physics and their wide ranging applications in the field of photonics. Key areas of study include practical photonics, light, matter, coherent light, coherent matter, lasers and spectroscopy.
Introducing your degree
You’ll be studying within a leading Physics and Astronomy department, ranked 4th in the UK by The Guardian University Guide 2017.
We’re also 1st in the Russell Group for student satisfaction – 96 per cent of Physics and Astronomy students said they were satisfied with their course in the latest National Student Survey (2016).
Photonics represents one of the most dynamic areas of research and development and it plays a vital role both in basic physics and applied physics and engineering.
The extraordinary growth in telecommunications over the last decade was made possible through the development of photonic systems. The application of optical techniques looks set to increase so this is a perfect time to get involved with the emerging photonics industry. At Southampton, you will be taught by staff at the top of their field, some of who are based in our Optoelectronics Research Centre – one of the world’s leading institutes for photonics research.
