The PhD in Physics is focused on research activities, complemented by a few advanced courses, which examine the fundamental and applied concepts of either physics or biomedical physics. Our researchers have expertise in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics including quantum- and nano- materials, human biomedical physics, molecular biophysics, theoretical particle physics, laser optics and photonics, molecular modeling/computational physics and physics education and cultivate strong student-supervisor relationships. Many of us are members of various research centres that promote interdisciplinary collaborations in nano-, molecular and life sciences. Our Department has state of the art facilities for medical imaging, molecular biophysics, optical spectroscopy, photonics and low-temperature transport measurements, among others.
