About Us

The Applied Physics Division of the SAIP (South African Institute of Physics) promotes applied physics in South Africa and coordinates the applied physics track in the annual conference of the SAIP. It also aims to facilitate contact between academia and industry, linking universities, research laboratories, companies and government organisations involved in applied physics, as well as advancing careers in applied physics for university graduates.

The current Chairperson is Alan Matthews at the University of the KwaZulu-Natal, and the committee draws its members from universities and research centres across South Africa.
