Course Description

Physics is the most fundamental science. Physics is the study of the properties of matter and energy. This allows physicists to unravel the mysteries of the universe. This course will cover current physics research, and how it can help you understand the fundamental nature the universe. To enhance your physics skills, you'll also be exposed to real-world applications. This course will begin by exploring the nature and applications of plasmas in areas like astrophysics and wound healing. Fusion energy and propulsion for spacecraft are also explored. Next, you will learn how to design advanced materials for solar cells, lasers and pharmaceuticals. This will give you an insight into how physics transforms different industries. The final part of the course will focus on the building blocks of the universe, which are the particles that make everything possible. We will examine how the smallest components of nature impact our daily lives, from dark matter to quantum communication.

Modern physics research can lead to solutions for some of the most pressing problems facing humanity. We'll show you the various solutions that physicists have discovered. You'll see the many future technologies that are being developed, from fusion as an energy source to medical diagnosis. York houses internationally recognized research groups in condensed and plasma matter physics as well as nuclear physics and the physics behind life. As world-famous physicists guide you through cutting-edge research, they will show you how physics can shape the world around you.
