Applied Physics

Although most of the research in this department can be classified as basic research, many very active groups are also involved in a wide range of Applied Physics - research geared to direct applications in industry. Over the years, this effort within UBC's Dept. of Physics and Astronomy has spawned a number of spin-off companies such as Dynapro, MoLi Energy, Vortek, Quartz Imaging, Xillix, TIR Systems, Sonigistics, Techware systems, Corona Vacuum Coaters, and BrooksAutomation.

In addition to these, applied physics research opportunities are available through the condensed matter physics group , and in medical and biophysics.
