The Dept. of Physics (DF) develops intense research activity in multiple scientific areas, being an international reference in several of them. This investigation takes place in research centers where teachers and researchers are integrated.
Much of the research is done in collaborations with large international laboratories such as CERN, ESA, ESO, PSI, GSI, ISIS, ESRF, TRIUMF, etc...
The DF also maintains a strong connection with technology companies, with which it collaborates, namely in the development of instrumentation and its incorporation into products and services.
