Our research covers a very rich portfolio over most of the subfields of physics. which are broadly divided in four core research areas.
More information on all the research groups: Annual reports
Studying the macroscopic and microscopic physical properties of matter
Understanding the building blocks of matter
Astro(particle) & Cosmology
Search for Dark Matter and neutrinoless double ß decay and studies of gravitational waves and theoretical astrophysics
Bio- & Medical Physics
Studying disordered and out-of-equilibrium systems and medical applications
The Physics Department has unique links with external institutes, particularly the Paul Scherrer Institute and the CERN laboratory.
