The School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin is a dynamic, vibrant and diverse environment for your graduate studies. Talented and hardworking graduate students, together with energetic postdoctoral fellows, are the true engine driving our research activity and the heart of our community. At present the School has over 100 MSc/PhD students coming from the five continents and it is the largest School of Physics in Ireland.
Research in the School is at the forefront of many areas in physics, including theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, photonics and optoelectronics, soft condensed matter physics and astrophysics, as well as many other topics at the boundaries of traditional fields, including materials research and nanoscience. The School participates in the activity of several interdisciplinary research centers:
CRANN: Center for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices
CRANN is a Science Foundation Ireland funded Centre for Science and Engineering Technology, and comprised of partners in academia, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and University College Cork. In addition CRANN has many industry partners including Intel and Hewlett Packard, along with a number of Irish high tech companies. Research in CRANN is focussed of key topics in both nano- and bio-science, including magnetic structures and devices, bottom-up fabrication and testing of nanoscale integrated devices, and nano-biology of cell surface interactions.
TCHPC: Trinity Center for High Performance Computing
Founded in 1997, the Trinity Centre for High Performance Computing (TCHPC) is Ireland's premier High Performance Computing Centre with the largest Supercomputing and Visualisation facilities in Ireland. TCHPC lies at the heart of Trinity College Dublin's computational science initiative. Our primary mission is to facilitate research through the use of advanced computing techniques.
CTVR: the Centre for Telecommunications Value-Chain Research
CTVR is a 'virtual' centre made up from participating researchers from different Irish universities and research institutes working in conjunction with their industrial partners, coordinated by the centre's management team.
DIAS: Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies
The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies is a statutory corporation established in 1940 as a publicly-funded independent centre for research in basic disciplines. The Institute has three constituent schools: The School of Theoretical Physics, the School of Cosmic Physics and the School of Celtic Studies.
We believe in making the School of Physics an exciting and productive place for students, faculty, and staff, a task made easier by the intriguing cultural richness and diversity of the city of Dublin. Weekly seminars and a daily School tea create an intellectually challenging and friendly environment, and provide opportunities for students to interact with visitors from other laboratories and institutions throughout the world.
