Hydrogen-Alpha imaging of nebula
The Astrophysics Group in the School of Physics at Bristol is active in several research areas. It specializes in cosmology, the formation of clusters and galaxies, active galaxies, high-energy astrophysical processes, and the formation of extrasolar planets. Observational work in the Group uses large ground-based and satellite telescopes from the radio to the X-ray bands. Theoretical work is tied closely to the interpretation of these data.
The Group is also heavily involved in the graduate and undergraduate teaching of the School of Physics. The Group runs a number of undergraduate courses associated with degree programmes in Physics with Astrophysics, and holds a continuing series of research seminars for graduate students and staff. Shared research seminars with other universities are held using the Access Grid Node located within the School of Physics.
The research interests of the group run from X-ray to radio wavebands, and cover planetary, galactic, extra galactic, and cosmological subjects.
