Quantum physics, ruling the atomic and sub-atomic microworld, is macroscopically entering our lives: deep submicron electronics, optics & computing, imaging and even cryptography are increasingly based on Quantum physics.
Scientists at the Department of Physics and Mathematics are heavily involved in exploring and exploiting the realm of quantum physics:
fundamental research on elementary particles goes along with the theoretical and experimental studies of entanglement, the basic concepts for quantum computing and teleportation
condensed matter matches and complements studies on new materials
relativity, astroparticle and astrophysics meets chaos...
Teams at the University of Insubria have a well established web of international collaboration. They lead projects funded by the European Commission and based at world class research sites like CERN, the European Center for Nuclear Research, and the Gran Sasso laboratory. Undergraduate degrees are complemented by an award-winning Ph.D. Degree in Physics, soon to be integrated with a Ph.D. Degree in Astrophysics.
