Research & Teaching

The Physics Department of the University of Calabria, located in the beautiful Campus of Arcavacata, carries out research activities in Astrophysics, Biomedical Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Geophysics, Molecular Biophysics, Physics and Applications of Soft Matter, Physics of Fundamental Interactions, Surface Electron Spectroscopy.

It hosts since 1988 the Unit of Cosenza of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), whose activities include Particle Physics with Accelerators, Theoretical Physics, Research And Development.

The Experimental Particle Physics Group participates in the ZEUS experiment at HERA, the ATLAS experiment at LHC and the KLOE experiment at the DAFNE collider (Frascati, Italy). It is also involved in the upgrade of parts of the ATLAS detectors and in the development of hadronic calorimeter modules based on the Dual Readout Method.

The Theory Group studies QCD in the high-energy limit and hadron phenomenology, lattice QCD and other lattice gauge theories and spin models, field theory of correlated devices, integrable models. The Physics Department houses the Data Center ReCaS of the INFN Unit of Cosenza, a large HPC infrastructure for the analysis of experimental data from the LHC and other colliders.

Studying physics in Cosenza offers several possibilities: a three-year course in Physics for the first-level degree, a two-year course in Physics for the master degree, a three-year PhD course organized in several curricula reflecting the rich structure of research activities of the Department of Physics.
