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.

Highlights

Sök senast 15 april

Sista ansökningsdag till höstens utbildningar är 15 april. Du gör din ansökan på http://antagning.se

Efter 15 april stänger anmälan till Uppsala universitets utbildningar. 15 juli öppnar sen anmälan,
men bara för program och kurser där det kan finnas platser kvar.

ESA's billion-star Galactic Surveyor 'Gaia' successfully launched

After seven years of preparation, the ESA cornerstone mission Gaia was successfully launched from French Guyana at 1012 h (CET) on the 19th of December. It is now on its way to Lagrange point 2, 1.5 million kilometers outside Earth's orbit.

Several scientists from the Department of Physics and Astronomy have had active roles in the Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC), a team of some 400 scientists around Europe which has prepared the software side of the mission. Soon, this software will be put to the test on actual Gaia data. This moment is of course anxiously awaited.
