At the Department of Physics, cutting-edge research is conducted within a number of exciting areas. Our researchers study things like nanomagnets, extremely strong lasers, AI for active matter, horses in space, just to name a few. The research efforts are divided into three major strategic areas: Atomic & Molecular Physics, Complex Systems & Biological Physics and Condensed Matter Physics. Each of the areas is in turn divided into sub-areas. Projects that fall outside of these areas are gathered under “Other research activities”.
