The program provides opportunities to specialise in different directions within physics:
Including applied optics and laser physics, electron-ion physics, energy, atmosphere-and environmental physics.
Including soft and complex matter, biopolymers, nanostructured surfaces, modelling and simulation of energy materials and systems, theoretical studies within quantum optics.
The research is within material science, including nanoscale structure studies to macroscopic physical properties. Important techniques are transmission electron microscopy (TEM), x-ray scattering, scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM).
The research is focused towards Condensed matter physics theory, Theoretical subatomic physics, Astroparticle physics.
