Our staff undertake research in two main areas. The first is through the Centre for Medical Radiation Physics. Research programs are in the fields of radiation detectors and dosimetry, microdosimetry, nanodosimetry instrumentation for radiotherapy, space exploration, radiation oncology physics, innovative cancer treatment technologies including proton and synchrotron radiation therapies, radiobiology, radiation transport simulations and nuclear medicine and medical imaging. The second research area is through the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials where our main research interests are in the field of condensed matter physics specialising in semiconductors and superconductors. Included in this is a strong research program in THz spectroscopy.
