Physics and Materials Science

Looking into the Characteristics of Advanced Materials



Research in Physics and Materials at the University of Luxembourg has a strong focus on condensed matter. The term condensed matter covers those areas of physics that investigate the properties of liquids and solids. Condensed Matter Physics is of high interest in basic research and also important for the development of technological and knowledge transfer industries working with materials.

How do properties of magnets change when structured on the nanoscale? How can we make a cheaper and more environmentally-friendly solar panel? 
The research unit in Physics and Material Sciences aims to answer important fundamental scientific research questions, all with applications relevant to society today.
