This module is intended to enable key developments in physics to be studied in depth so that students can appreciate, from a historical viewpoint, the significance of major conceptual shifts in the subject both in terms of the understanding of the subject and in terms of its experimental basis. 

Many present-day technological industries are the consequence of such key developments and the topics illustrate how unforeseen technologies develop from new discoveries.
