Physics & Astronomy
Students perform experimental/observational or theoretical/computational research in mainstream areas of physics and astronomy, or are offered the unique opportunity to undertake interdisciplinary projects through collaboration in a number of research centres.
You'll benefit from excellent facilities, a high-calibre of professors — including Canada and York Research Chairs — and close connections to interdisciplinary centres at York in fields such as Atmospheric Chemistry, Earth & Space Science, Mass Spectrometry and Vision Research.
The program is recognized for offering students invaluable research opportunities through its affiliation with important international endeavours including: the space-borne Gravity Probe B mission developed by NASA and Stanford University; the ATLAS detector in the LHC accelerator ring at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland; and the international ALPHA and ATRAP collaborations, which are exploring the physics of antimatter through their work with cold antihydrogen atoms at CERN.
