King’s College London has one of the UK’s best Departments of Physics. According to the QS World University Rankings, we are within the top ten universities in the country. Our Department has research groups in Biological Physics & Soft Matter, Photonics & Nanotechnology, Theory & Simulation of Condensed Matter, and Theoretical Particle Physics & Cosmology.
The Department of Physics at King's College London is active in outreach nationally and internationally.
Within the UK, we aim to foster interest in science and physics in the general public and specifically in school-age students.
The department is also actively developing a thriving international outreach programme, building on some of the existing international projects that department members are working on.
The Wheatstone Lecture has been hosted annually by the Department of Physics since 2013. Open to all, the lecture takes its name from Charles Wheatstone who was a Professor of Experimental Philosophy at King's from 1834 until he died in 1875. Polymath and self-taught son of a London-based musical instrument maker, Wheatstone conducted early experiments into acoustics and the transmission of sound. His greatest achievement was the development of the electric telegraph, which revolutionised communications in the 19th century.
