Fysik i Lund: under 300 år av Ulf Litzen (2015) behandlar lundafysikens utveckling under universitetets första 300 år alltifrån starten, då hela verksamheten bestod av undervisning i form av föreläsningar, via en period då forskningen kom igång på allvar och väckte internationell uppmärksamhet, till den snabba expansionen efter andra världskriget.
