In the Department of Physics, high quality academic training is combined with the exciting scientific research.
The winning combination of experience, energy and scientific ambitions, fruitful cross-discipline ties, and collegiality allows to conduct cutting edge programs in the major areas of modern physics: Condensed matter, Lasers and quantum optics, Atomic and molecular physics, Biophysics, Elementary particles and field theory, Astrophysics and cosmology.
Areas of specialization:
Experimental research includes superconductivity, a wide spectrum of nanoscience of materials, cold atoms, single cell and DNA physics. Theoretical research covers virtually all scales, from the Plank scale toward nano-scales and further to the Universe as a whole, and combines fundamental and applied studies as well.
Full Tuition and Cost of Living Scholarships are available for excellent students.
Outstanding students may join the combined M.Sc.-Ph.D. track during the 2nd year of the M.Sc. studies. Students in this track join the Ph.D. program without submitting M.Sc. thesis. They will submit a single thesis, and will be awarded both
Ph.D. and M.Sc. candidates are given the opportunity to work under the supervision of top-flight scientists using advanced laboratory equipment.?
Length of program:
The M.Sc. degree requires two years of full-time study, and Ph.D. degree requires four years.
