The department of Physics and Astronomy was formed in January 2010 by merging the former department of Physics and Astronomy with the department of Physics and Materials Science.
The department of Physics and Astronomy has assignments within three main areas; education, research and cooperation with society, carried out within Applied nuclear physics, Astronomy and space physics , High Energy Physics, Ion Physics, Materials Physics, Materials Theory, Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics,
Nuclear Physics, Physics Education Research and Theoretical physics.
You find us at the Ångström laboratory in Uppsala.
F-lärarpriset är ett pedagogiskt pris som delas ut av studenterna på civilingenjörsprogrammet i Teknisk Fysik. 2012 års pedagogiska pris går till Olga Botner, professor i högenergifysik vid institutionen, för hennes insatser som föreläsare i kursen Partikelfysik.

Ring and LINAC (FEL) based x-ray sources provide ultra-high brilliant photon beams to the experiments. These 3rd and 4th generation light sources require high resolution and reliable electron beam diagnostics to ensure very stable conditions at the experiments. This talk will discuss the different beam diagnostic needs of these accelerators and will compare theirs typical instruments. Examples from PETRAIII, the European XFEL and FLASH at DESY in Hamburg will be given.
Susanne Åberg did defend her thesis in March 2013 with the title "Science in Business Interaction: A Study of the Collaboration between CERN and Swedish Companies"
"The aim of this thesis is twofold; to gain and understanding of how CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, interacts with industry; and to gain an understanding of how CERN can become a resource for industry. Both parts of the purpose also have implications for the issue of CERN’s usefulness to industry.
