About us

The aim of physics is to investigate nature's fundamental laws and to apply the knowledge and results to science, engineering, and devices. Our department consists of four research groups: 1) astrophysics and particle physics theory; 2) condensed matter physics theory; 3) astrophysics and particle physics experiments; and 4) condensed matter physics experiments. The groups thus cover a broad spectrum of research fields including microscopic elementary particles, condensed matter of conventional size and the macroscopic universe, and conduct intensive research on various novel physics subjects. Each group is further divided into subgroups depending on the research subject to achieve highly effective research and education. The groups and subgroups maintain close cooperation with each other, with other departments, and with other domestic and foreign universities and research institutes.
