The Department of Physics is consistently ranked in the top 20% of the departments of physics worldwide and among the top Physics departments in Italy. The research activity involves the construction of large and complex experimental facilities operating at major research laboratories in the world and several hundred scientific publications per year on the most prestigious international journals.
The Department of Physics hosts a division of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) and cooperates with the major research centres nationally, such as the Astrophysics National Institute (INAF) and ENEA, and internationally such as CERN, ESO, ESA and NASA. Research spans topics in Astrophysics, Space science, Material science, Physics of fundamental interactions, Physics of complex systems, theoretical physics.
The Department of Physics promotes the scientific research and teaching in the field of experimental and theoretical studies of physical phenomena. The department promotes and coordinates the applications in physical sciences and new technologies, the development of new teaching and learning methods, advanced instrumentation, in cooperation with schools, companies, healthcare, bolides for the public protection, environment and cultural heritage. The department exploits the competences and professional qualification of its core staff, as well as the human and infrastructural resources assigned to it.
