Division of Physics and Astronomy

Division of Physics and Astronomy

Introduction & Policy Outline

The Division of Physics and Astronomy consists of three research departments.

 

The Department of Physics I and the Department of Physics II both work on elucidating the universal, fundamental laws of the natural world. While Physics I concentrates its efforts on the field of condensed matter physics, Physics II focuses mainly on the fields of particle physics, nuclear physics, and astrophysics. The Department of Astronomy aims to study phenomena in space, based on techniques used in astronomy and astrophysics.

 

In the Division of Physics and Astronomy, we address the important problems of each field on a wide range, conducting both theoretical, experimental and observational studies. We continually aim to conduct fundamental research in order to maintain one of the highest levels of research worldwide and to train excellent researchers to carry on with the traditions of research at our departments.
