Experimental and observational physics plays an important role in the physical sciences. Every model or theory must be ultimately verified or falsified in an experiment or via observations.
Observations and experiments work hand in hand with theoretical studies to explore and explain the natural world. In the UNSW School of Physics we have active experimental research into acoustics, biophysics and condensed matter physics, as well as observational astronomy focusing on exoplanets, stars in the Milky Way, and distant galaxies.
